This comes from Sunderland, England...
1. Punctuation within inverted commas ("Sunderland's great." is correct, "Newcastle's great". is wrong).
2) Exclamation marks are crap. Only people with no class use them. It's like telling a joke and then saying, "That was a joke," when no one laughs.
3) The only words that we use in upper case are SOL, ALS and SAFC.
4) Apostrophes on words that end in "s" are tricky: If you pronounce a second "s" add it on (St. James's Park is crap), if not, don't (Gareth Hall was always the fans' favourite).
5) Hyphens should have a space before and after - like that.
6) No double spaces� anywhere.
7) If you don't know how to use semi-colons, don't bother, they're a bit of a funny one to be honest; only flash bastards use them.
Seven's my favorite!
When a football fanzine offers a grammar & puctuation style guide to its passionate amateur writer/contributors, there must be something interesting to watch. When the style guide is more memorable than Strunk & White's timeless grammar pocket reference, The Elements of Style, then you need to bookmark the site: A Love Supreme.
Furthermore, Mick McCarthy's Sunderland AFC should overachieve in the Prem this year with a smart new emphasis on youth and player value-for-money.
