    A Southend United XI who all played for another club

    See if you can come up with a Southend United XI where the players have all played for another particular club. I would think the Southend XI who have also played for Crystal Palace would take some beating: John Burridge Gary Stebbing Leon Cort Adam Barrett Chris Powell Barry Silkman Glenn...

    Update on Cinderella

    I hope you like this, and it's not too ancient a one! Cinderella is now 95 years old. After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince, she happily sits upon her rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with a cat named Bob for companionship. One sunny afternoon...

    Harry's Nostalgia - York (Dec 92)

    Please forgive this old git a bit of self indulgence, but as this is my 10,000th post, and before I get back to working for a living, I decided I would do another away day article. For the purpose of this article I have chosen an away trip to York in December 1972. As ever my memory played...

    Barry Fry's interview in match programme

    Did anyone read with interest the interview with Fat Barry in the programme? It was surprisingly honest - I suppose he thinks that what happened in '93 (or whenever) is all ancient history now, which I suppose it is. He said -and this was the honest bit- that he used "the situation" with...

    Who would win?

    With the desperate call-up of Darren Pattinson (leve space for edit 10-wicket Darren Pattinson), it got me thinking who would win in a straight match up between the English Aussie XI and the English SeffAfrikaan XI in a one-off Test match? The line-ups are based upon being born, or extensively...

    National Express rocks !

    I hope all those defectors from C2 are enjoying the journey on our crowded, comparitively ancient and non a/c trains today. Sharon and Tracy talking about their sex lives haven't found their way onto my carriage fortunately. If this unexploded bomb has been there 60 years why the big panic...
  13. TV Pick of the day 08-May-2008

    FIRST COICE Midnight Man (ITV1, 9pm) James Nesbitt has played some dark characters but he’s always likeable. His latest incarnation has something of the night about him – a journalist who is afraid of daylight. And some earlier scandal in his career has reduced him to rifling...

    The Olympics

    I went along this afternoon to see the Olympic Flame pass through our nation's fine capital. I for one, am excited about the prospect of the Olympics coming to Britain in 4 years time. For me there is something special about the Olympics going all the way back to its roots in Ancient Greece...

    Sun Benitez

    Liverpool finally joined up with their compatriots in the last eight of the Champions League on Wednesday morning and sent out an ominous message to the rest of Europe in the process. Inter Milan will complain bitterly about another harsh red card, but the truth is that they have been absolutely...

    UK chooses 'most ludicrous laws' - from BBC News

    A little-known law which prohibits people dying while in the Houses of Parliament has been voted the UK's most ludicrous piece of legislation. Another law which states it is treason to use a postage stamp upside down was placed in second place by those polled by UKTV Gold. The most absurd...

    A face that needs to be spanked

    Marky Gower mentions on another thread that Roy "Chubby" Brown has one of those faces that you want to smack. I cannot disagree with him on this. However, there are other deserving cases, such as Jamie Oliver and that smug ancient, colostomy-bag wearing Christian, Cliff Richard. There must be...

    The Most Annoying Album in the World

    OK, if we had to create an album of the most annoying tracks in the world, what would be your choice? I mean songs that really make you cringe, not necessarily tacky commercial songs like Mr Blobby or Bob the Builder. My nominations are: - Brim Full of Asha : Cornershop - Dancing in the...
