BLAISE TAPP: Even in the 21st century, you can't beat old-fashioned playtime

Have your say

It’s not often this corner of the newspaper has a good word to say about the EU – but credit where credit’s due.

There will be rejoicing all over the land at the European ruling which backed Portsmouth landlady, Karen Murphy, in her battle to use foreign (and much cheaper) providers of live Premiership football. The decision may well be over-ruled in the future, but those of us who have fallen out of love with a sport in which average performers earn more in a month than a cancer nurse earns in five years are relishing the moment.

All hail Karen Murphy!
