  2. Slow starters

    Longest words in the English language

    We're still ages off the start of the season so nonsense threads are still order of the day. So, for those of you that like obscure stuff, see what you can come up with on the longest words in the English language. My starter for 10 is: floccinaucinihilipilification - which is the...

    A Cultural Review 2015

    I haven't seen many films this year - so it's been a year of new podcasts, new books, new TV shows and new music. New podcasts: Lore has been interesting - a bi-weekly investigation of myths/ No Such Thing as a Fish - funny at times, fascinating in others - produced by the team behind QI...

  8. Loza back for play-offs?

    Now Norwich have finished their season (and he hasn't made the bench today) will Loza come back for the play-off's? Is he allowed to? Not necessarily a starter but a useful option off the bench.

  11. Be an Angel - Back a New Horror Film

    My Niece's husband is a very decent indeed writer and producer of Horror films. They are looking to raise £14,000 on Kickstarter to fund their next project, so from as little as £10, which you only pay if the Film raises the funds, you can be involved, get your name in the credits, get a digital...

  15. Freddy: Starter or impact sub?

    Maybe a silly thread but who cares. In the run in would you start with Freddy or would he be best served as an impact sub ( considering his lack of fitness).

    We Are Facing a Drought

    According to those who know these things, we are facing a drought that could rival 1976. Here's an solution, who agrees or disagrees, like I don't already know. We currently have an energy shortage, a water shortage, and a need to reduce our carbon footprint right? So shut the hippies up and...

    Southchurch Village CC vs Fresh Team A rare starter for me simply because this has turned out to be an unexpected chance at consolidating my place at the top of the league and a real shout at promotion to level IV. The problem is i've lost all 13 matches between the two of us, although I have...
