    champion news paper

    FC UNITED of MANCHESTER (not United) 0 - V - SOUTHPORT 1

    I did not go to the Sunday game but after reading the Champion newspaper I am confused.

    The story read "THE HOSTS SCORED" the away team was Southport.
    "SANDGROUNDERS DESERVED TO SHARE THE POINTS"

    who won

    IT IS A BIT LIKE ABBOT AND COSTELLO

    Champion Newspaper

    Both of the local rags are a joke, full of spelling mistakes, geographical inaccuracies, place names and street names spelt wrong. Get me a 3 year old to edit them. They could probably do a better job.
    Inaccuracies include for instance.

    Princess Park (should be Princes)
    Princess Street (should be Princes)
    London Road (should be Street)

    Fc United won 1-0.

    Then on we sail,
    Never thinking that the wind could ever fail,
    No one gets to heaven till they"ve lived a while in hell,
    And even then its rare
    That you"ll be going there.

    Ronnie James Dio. Rip. All the fools sailed away.

    I once noticed Longacre Road - on the other site I think. Its grammar and spelling is no better than that of the press.

    Yes, they could all do with hiring a proof reader... just to make sure nothing is wrong. Some basic geographical knowledge of the local area would help too.
