In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

SERIAL: MM 53299-2

Back in 1999 this San Diego metal quintet took many by surprise with their debut release 'Unveiled'. The band then backed it up live with a set at the Dynamo Open Air festival, soon becoming one of underground metal's favourite sons. Two years on and their highly anticipated sophomore effort is released. Cage are an uncompromising pure metal band, and if you're a fan of 'Painkiller' era Judas Priest, Primal Fear and early Crimson Glory then you are going to have a very sore neck after listening to 'Astrology'. Despite this being an extremely strong release, the production (though the press statement says otherwise) is a little patchy. If these guys had the production of those aforementioned bands, they'd be giving the big boys a mighty scare. Though the production is a little disappointing, the songs on mass are not.

The Songs
Cage definitely know how to kick up a storm and there are some thundering metal anthems such as the scorching opener 'Final Solution', the thundering 'Edge' and pounding 'Root Of All Evil'. I'd have to say the stand out track on the album is the semi-ballad 'Souls and Flesh'. Outstanding lead vocals and crushing riffs. In Sean Peck they've got an extremely agile vocalist who is right up there with Halford and the like.

In Summary
On the basis of 'Astrology', Cage definitely have the songwriting and musical ability to be a major force in the melodic metal scene. There isn't a hell of a lot they need to improve on in those areas. What they do need on their next album, assuming they come up with the same quality of songs, is a better production. Match up this up with the material and Cage will be heading out onto the highway of success.
