    Another manager bites the dust

    Tranmere have parted company with M. Adams - desperate times for the club. I feel sorry for the fans. Burton changed manager when Rowett left but otherwise is it a co-incidence that the top 8 or so clubs (Wycombe, Shrewsbury, Bury, Southend and Stevenage for instance) have all kept their...

    Back after the summer recess in the City

    UGG boots. FFS there should be a law against these being worn above 5C. What next ? Manbags ? Men wearing Alice bands. Fake orange tans ? Women wearing black suits with White shoes or flip flops? Nah, that won't happen.

My surname starts with an S and as we had decided to name our daughter Clara I dwelt for some time on giving her the middle names of her grandmothers, Leah and Alice.........in the end I dropped the...

  7. Great New Story About The Boy Eastwood

    a absolutely fantastic new story about freddy. On Easter Saturday, a friend of mine walked into a local pub in corringham for a quite drink with a mate, when he pushed open the door, he was amazed to see about 20 gippos all drinking and shouting and having a good time. He also noticed the large...
  8. Malice In Wonderland

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7316174.stm Apparently theres going to be a remake of Alice In Wonderland filmed in Southend staring Mischa Barton, which is nice. Good thing for the town, I wonder how long it will be until she has a restraining order out on Chadded though. And its an...

    New To The Pub - It's Metal Monday (Part 1)

    Taking influence from Dave and MK's "to start the weekend" I decided that i'd start a "Metal Monday" thread for those who like they're music heavy and want some brightening up on a Monday. I shalln't be exclusive to Metal, anything that's good a good guitar riff will suffice. This week I'm...

  13. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
