The Chimp Paradox

The Chimp Paradox is a 2012 book by acclaimed sports psychiatrist, Professor Steve Peters. Peters theorises that we all have an inner Chimp that can be a bit of a pain in the arse – it’s the bit of the brain which runs on emotions and gut instinct, makes snap judgements and thinks in black and white. The

It’s hard to believe that it’s 20 (TWENTY) years since we pipped Fulham to the ‘old’ Football League Third Division title, by virtue of Graeme Jones’s record 31 league goals in a season. (Whatever happened to him?) [In most seasons we would have been runners-up, but a temporary rule change which saw goals scored take precedence over

If you didn’t sleep straight through the last 24 hours, you’ll already be well aware that there were a number of new faces parachuted into the DW Stadium yesterday, all joining up with Warren Joyce’s bunch of merry men… For many of you, there will have been plenty of scratching of heads and mumbling “…never bloody

Hello again Steevl Urmack here, PieAtNight’s resident (very amateur) music journalist… Following on from yesterday’s hip-hip/soul/jazz heavy section of my favourite albums of the year, today I thought it only fair that I give you some white boys with guitars.
