    Bon Scott or Brian Johnson

    Been chatting with the daughter on the merits of bands who replace the original lead singer and we agree that it rarely works. AC/DC being one of the few exceptions to the rule. So for those of you who like AC/DC, whos best, Bon or Brian? Said daughter went for Bon and I agree. You lot?

    Memories of Mark Clattenberg refereeing Southend?

    My local club (very local, semi-pro club where I coach at U8 level) has for some strange reason got Premier League referee Mark Clattenberg officiating at their match this weekend. Now I've got a real bee in my bonnet about him as a ref and whilst he's had controversial moments in big games I...

    Memorable first days at work.

    Down on my luck in 1993 I ended up with a job at a sponge/J cloth factory. As I walked through the door to clock in on my first day one raconteur and bon vivant took a deep drag of his Benny Henny, exhaled and then turned to a colleague and remarked "are you still knobbing that bird from the...

    Anyone Else Noticed Bilel's Achievements in Bonny Scotland...?

    I know he's yesterday's man, but I was interested to see that the crazy Tunisian has now scored five goals in six matches for Rangers. The opposition is pretty lowly, but at least he seems to be behaving himself.

    Anyone else love the show,even with the biased voting lol Watched semi finals last night first heat loved Belarus and Estonia Better to listen without the sub titles on when singing in their own language,makes it more realistic. Our Bonnie will do well to get in the top ten imho,not a bad...

    A Mohsni Christmas Carol

    A MOHSNI CHRISTMAS CAROL A little bit of seasonal ShrimperZone Dickensish rubbish. It was Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Mohsni was home, alone tucking into his bowl of French Onion Soup mulling over the events of the past six months when he heard a clanking noise coming from another room. He...
  14. The Craziest Parking Ticket you got or heard of.

    Lorry driver Michael Collins was on his way to collect a skip in London's Belsize Park when the road beneath him collapsed. A burst water main had created a deep hole where the front wheels of his 17-tonne lorry were stuck. While he was waiting for roadside assistance, a traffic warden appeared...

    T20I: England v West Indies (Friday and Sunday)

    Myself and SUFCEssex are off to The Oval tomorrow for the first of 2 T20Is v The Windies Team news There are a variety of options for England to consider and the squad was clearly picked with an eye on Sri Lanka as it contains four spin options. It's hard to see more than two playing in either...

    The mongol rally 2012

    Well I had intended on leaving this until nearer the time but things have moved on a little quicker than expected so here goes. Several years ago I was being all funky and surfing the net when I happened across an web site called TheAdventurists. Through my drunken haze I read about a totally...
  17. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    Wembley's Awful Pitch

    90,000 seats, 2618 toilets, 26 lifts, 98 kitchens and 34 bars. Was it too much to ask for Wembley to provide just one decent playing surface? Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final was like watching naughty ten year olds playing football indoors on an untacked carpet. Every change of direction brought a...
