  1. Attending Games: Entertaining football Vs. Results

    After the thread about booing Sturrock, I've been thinking, what do people prefer, honestly? I wasn't a massive fan of Sturrock, but had & still have a lot of respect for the man. He worked a minor miracle. But that doesn't take away from the fact, he's brand of football was absolutely dire...

    Nicky Bailey...

    http://www.millwall.vitalfootball.co.uk/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=109096&posts=6 Just reading the Millwall forum, and they are, understandably, a little ****ed off at the fact that, following that abysmal showing from old ginge, his wife has gone and tweeted a photo of their brand new...
  3. Beer festivals in Southend

    I admit I could be wrong on this. But I believe there are no CAMRA beer festivals being held in Southend itself these days. I went to the Rochford Beer Festival which was great, and I also tend to head out to the Chappel and Wakes Colne event as well as the Chelmsford and Colchester ones. In...

    Renting out a flat.

    Hi all, I am considering buying a flat (brand new) to rent out. 1 or 2 bed in Corringham (choice of bed's may be available). ' What are the pitfalls of said idea? :unsure: It would be a 'cash' purchase so no mortgage to worry about. What would be a reasonable rent to charge? I would think...

  6. Double delight !

    Congratulations to Cauley for his first league goal hopefully with plenty more to come. Secondly, Phil Brown has done a magnificent job at the club,Phil has one hand tied to his back yet has produced a fast flowing play it on the floor team who now must be genuine play off hopefuls or even...
  7. Ref Watch ...... Exeter A

    The referee currently appointed to the match on Saturday is Steve Bratt from Walsall. I say currently as he hasn't done a game for a couple of months and only 5 all season. He started young as part of the "talent group" of referees who were being groomed for future "stardom" and it all went...
  8. Supermarket own-brand beer

    Biere de Belgique at ASDA is as good as any other canned lager (apart from the Polish ones) in my opinion. £3.80 for 4x500ml is good value and it has a good belgian style - hints of both stella and leffe, but very sessionable. Any other recommendations for the frugal and discerning home drinker?

    Dangerous drinks?

    I woke up with a mild hangover so purchased a can of Monster Ripper to accompany my cooked breakfast from the company canteen.I I spilled a bit when I opened the can and decided to cleat it up when I had finished eating. When I wiped it up five minutes later I noticed the spill had dissolved...

    What can we really do?

    Most things that have gone on over the last few years have all be routed back to one man that's Ron Martin and his hold over our football club, but what seriously can you do? It just seems for me and our supporter base is not up for the fight and has been turned away from coming to games and we...
  11. Returnee

    Hi, I used to be a regular on here until about a year ago. I changed my username regularly but was probably best known as TS (or the fuller version of those initials), hence my new user name. I mainly go to away games in the North & Midlands though have done a few less over the last year. I lost...

    Snide condiments - A false economy?

    I just paid three quid for a sausage sandwich with ketchup and when I got to my desk and unwrapped it I was horrified to find twi sachets of Harrison's tomato ketchup. Needless to say the establishment will not be getting any further business from me. I have also just finished working for a US...

    Question Why are Labour ahead in the polls?

    I don't live in the UK any more but I had thought that after making such a mess of everything last time round that Labour would not be given another opportunity to balls the country up for a long, long time. However, I was surprised to read today that Labour are actually AHEAD in the polls...
  15. Plymouth Argyle Fan In Peace

    Hi guys, hope you don't mind me posting, very much looking forward to our game on Saturday. Just thought I'd post a quick preview from a green army view and ask a few questions if that is okay. After the hell we have gone through the last few seasons, finally we have a proper manager, a proper...

    The past and the future

    THE PAST AND THE FUTURE Stating the obvious really but this is my take on the history of the club and the lessons to be learnt. We can only imagine the horrors of the first world war but as life got back to some sense of normality, many longed to get back to dear old Roots Hall, but alas this...
  17. Question Embargoes and registrations

    I haven't a clue what is going on at our club. Does anyone actually know for a fact or fully understand the position we're in with signings? It's stated as fact on here (a fact I'm definitely not disputing, btw) that we're under various embargoes and yet we're signing players and the manager is...

    MONEY! MONEY! MONEY!.........but at what price?

    An interesting polemic. In the first instance you have the impression that religious dogma is clouding a players professional duties..........then, when you read further, it's not quite as clear as that. As an ex-pat 'Wonga' doesn't mean that much to me but when you read about the company...

    New Kit 2013-14 Season

    It's that time of year again when the team wear brands release their new ranges. We've been in Nike since 2003 and last year was one of the worst for Nike in terms of releasing navy and it was the first time in our wearing the brand that we didn't go for a new style, because there wasn't any...
