Pousadas, football and the power of the blog
A few short items for Friday morning.
1. Pousadas rock. They're the wonderful hotels based on historical buildings, palaces and castles dotted around Portugal. Just seen on their website that they have some tempting specials. I'd love a week touring Portugal like this, or even a long weekend. [No connection or commercial plug here, just wanted to big them up a bit.]
2. It's a great time to be a City fan. Looking likely that we'll be in a relegation scrap (along with half the premiership?), and we're talking about signing Kaka for enough money to buy an average-sized premier league team like West Ham or Middlesborough.
3. Very amusing article in The Guardian about Masal Bugduv, a 16 year old footballing prodigy who made No. 30 in a list of the world's hottest footballing talents compiled by The Times. The only thing is, he doesn't exist. Bugduv was created by football bloggers, and then picked up by a number of media sources in the course of their research.
