When, five years ago, it was revealed that Wayne Rooney had visited Harley Street for a hair transplant, the general public were left incredulous. Never before had this very personal procedure been made so public. Cue lots of guffawing – but amidst the jokes and finger pointing, something important was happening: scores of follicularly-challenged fellows around the country were getting their first glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel. Since then, the hair transplant has become increasingly common, adopted by reality televisions stars, Premier League football coaches and – yes – the everyman (who has thousands of pounds to spend). The stigma attached to boosting your barnet has all but disappeared. But what hopeful men with disappearing hairlines don't realise is that not everyone can undergo the procedure. Like so many miracle cures that sound too good to be true, the conditions you must meet to be eligible for a hair … [Read more...] about What makes a good candidate for a hair transplant?

Subscribe NowSir, I’m writing to complain about the poor, biased and inaccurate stories in this week’s Courier regarding the Isle of Gigha. The headline: ‘BBC Open Country Investigate Gigha,’ gives the impression that the BBC have investigated or looked into some sort of scandal.As I’m sure you are aware they visited to film the island from a tourism and general interest point of view, as many others have done so before. The Courier’s headline clearly misrepresents the island and is manipulative. The Courier appears to be suggesting a scandal where there is none purely to sell papers and in total disregard for the truth or the impact your story could have on Gigha. The paper also reports on the resignations of … [Read more...] about Letter: Gigha coverage was biased

Any City fans who watched the ITV coverage of England’s two games on Friday and Tuesday, might be forgiven for developing a slight sense of paranoia regarding our star striker Jamie Vardy. Firstly there was the extraordinary occurrence of Vardy’s 22-minute (plus three minutes of time added on) subs appearance against Holland in which he didn’t get a single touch of the ball. Although England were protecting a lead at the time and happy to play the ball across the back, the fact that he didn’t receive a single pass is remarkable. He loitered on the defender’s shoulder waiting for the sort of ball he receives when he’s playing for Leicester. It didn’t arrive. He strayed back into midfield to try to get involved. Still nothing. I would be interested to see the stats on how many times Dele Alli has passed to Vardy in an England shirt, he didn’t seem keen on making his mate Harry Kane’s rival look good. Vardy was mocked on social media … [Read more...] about Vardy and my paranoia over TV coverage during England game
