  • Miserly Moritz Volz fleeces his Egyptian mate September 13th, 2006 Fulham

    We love a football nutter here at Pies. Barmy Fulham defender Moritz Volz is one of our favourites – probably second only to Ian Holloway, in fact. While some of football’s more compliant characters were partaking in a spot of international football last week, Volzy went on a holiday to Egypt.

  • Is Michael Brown the new Ben Thatcher? August 26th, 2006 Fulham

    I still haven’t seen video footage of Michael Brown’s stamp on Ryan Giggs, but Fulham fans tell me it was bad – although not as bad as Ben Thatcher’s forearm smash. Fergie is certainly pissed off about it. It’s not the first time Brown has been the perpetrator of a dodgy tackle. Is he the […]

  • One to watch: Jimmy Bullard, Fulham August 4th, 2006 Fulham

What the hell were the designers at French sports company Airness thinking when they put frickin’ thumb holes in the new Fulham kit? What possible purpose does a thumb hole serve, apart from making a laughing stock […]
