    EFL Trophy may be scrapped

    According to the Guardian, Shaun Harvey, head of the EFL, says the EFL Trophy may be scrapped. Clearly this year's experiment didn't go as well as hoped... https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/dec/08/checkatrade-trophy-english-football-league

    Howard Marks.RIP.

    http://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/apr/10/howard-marks-dies-aged-70 Saw him talk in Barna a few years ago. Charming man.
  3. Diabetes

    After the newspaper article and the few posts after the Ben thread was re-hashed i thought we could do a thread on the the sugar rush of a diease. so post if you have it type one or two(just for barna) and tell us your stories good or bad and hopefully we may be able to help any new converts or...
  4. Well done to the Shrimper's Trust

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-33650543 Joking aside, this is massive news and a huge credit must go to the WHO and others. A couple of years ago, 9 polio vaccinators were shot dead in Nigeria - so this outcome is brilliant, given Nigeria is a difficult place to operate. I did a study...

    FAO Grouty - you've got to love Belgium

    I defy you not to applaud this (and apologies for going all Barna and linking to the grauniad)
  6. Break the silence

    Labour The Lets Expose The Labour Party Wrong'uns Thread

    As some of those who like to post in this forum seem to really enjoy taking swings at UKIP, I thought it was about time the favour was returned in spades just to show that there are plenty of wrong'uns who nail their colours to The Labour Party mast. Here's a couple of links to be getting on...

    Is this Barna in disguise?

    Englishman who doesn't like England - and a link to a Graundiad article as well. http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/jun/18/uk-english-uruguay-fan-world-cup

    World Cup kits through the ages

    Sorry to go all Barna on you boys and girls, but another nice piece of work by The Grauniad here. Quite a few inaccuracies - e.g. England's 1990 away shirt didn't have a white collar - but if you like the World Cup (I do) and football kits (I do) you'll like this (I do)...
  12. Playoff week: 'What you listening to' spinoff thread

    This thread is exclusively for motivational songs and outright bangers to get you in the mood for the playoffs. (non of that old jazz and blues stuff that clutters up the 'What you Listening to?' thread - in fact, a Barna-free zone) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9TWUUW4dFQ&app=desktop

    More bad news for Barna

    So it seems that the UK is actually doing quite well for itself under the "Nasty Party"....What is the saying? "cruel to be kind"? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25198125

    IMF cuts global growth outlook but raises UK forecast

    Bad news for Barna. This isn't really going to plan is it Barna? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24444134

    The secret of Germany's success

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2013/may/23/germany-bust-boom-talent Personally, I'm inclined to believe that it can be mostly attributed to the "50% plus one" rule.

    Southend Airport Poll

    Since the flights up to March 2nd 2014 go on sale today, which would make it almost 2 years of Easyjet flights out of SEN, i think its probably time that we had an SZ poll to find out which destination are the most popular with the SZ'ers... it is also handy that there are 15 Easyjet...
  17. Careful those who neg-rep Barna....

    He might track you down with his boxing gloves on :smile: http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/mar/12/english-boxer-curtis-woodhouse-twitter-troll However in my eyes their both muppets. If Woodhouse would have thumped him he'd be done for assault and lose his licence. Just block the trolls!

    Universally popular footballers

    Surprised Barna hasn't linked to this already http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/blog/2013/feb/26/universally-popular-footballers-team-likable-players What would be your nominations for universally loved footballers? To make it interesting no Southend players allowed, otherwise it would be a...
