Fourth Most Popular Blog in the UK (or is it Second?)
Hitwise have issued their latest monthly blog stats. It's great to see West Ham (in fourth place) beat Arsenal (in sixth!). Seriously, I am not sure why Hitwise amalgamate all the BBC blogs together, or indeed include Comment is Free at all. As Paul Linford has mentioned on Guido's blog, Comment is Free is a blog platform, not a blog. Anyway, glad to still be in the Top Ten!
[football rant] Talking of West Ham you can imagine how gutted I was to hear of Dean Ashton's injury today. I really feel for him. But doesn't it show how pathetic it is to have a friendly international even before thge season has begun? Another idiotic decision by the FA today was to ban Rooney and Scholes for three matches for being sent off in a friendly. Far be it from me to have sympathy for Man U supporters, but I'd be none too pleased if I'd shelled out the best part of £1,000 for a season ticket. [/football rant]
