    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...
  2. AFC Bournemouth

    Just wanted to say bloody well done to Bournemouth. I'll admit I'm envious, but top of the championship on merit. Very well run club by the owners who took over a few years back when they were in a real state, make excellent use of technology, excellent young manager, and all in a stadium not...

    The phil brown interview

    This was published on line yesterday in the form of a two part interview. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QhwRAIOMQw&feature=youtu.be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MPmQiRN7AI&feature=youtu.be It seems to me an important statement of faith from Phil Brown. I'm sure many have already...

    Rohan Ricketts

    Shameless plug yes, but I interviewed Rohan for my podcast and we spoke briefly about his trial at Southend. He basically said that he was initially offered around 3k a week which was then dramatically reduced by 60% a few days later. Just interesting to hear he was offered that much at the...

    Paul Byrne

    Does anyone know what happened to young Mr Byrne since he left us? It's just that I was flicking through my new copy of the Sky Sports Football Yearbook, by the usually reliable Jack and Glenda Rollin, when I had a bit of a shock. Because, according to them, he never left, and he's...

    Is this the beginning of the destruction......

    Is this the beginning of the destruction of the mould of British politics or is it the beginning of the destruction of the Liberal Democrats? Quite a day yesterday, which ended with probably the only really practical solution on the table. Briefly, hopes were raised on the idea of some...

    New Mobile Phone

    Looks like I need to change my current contract & therefore end up with a new phone. What I need to know from the people in SZ land is what phone should I look to get & what are the ones to avoid? I doubt for the £18/20 a month contract that I will probably go for, that I will get a Blackberry...

    Where Did The Money Come From?

    I've been away for a few days and it seems in my absence we've been saved. Whoopee do. I also gather that Ron Martin considers the matter closed, which is contemptuous in the extreme. Can someone briefly clarify: Where the money came from (who are we now indebted to instead of HMRC?) Has...

    Wembley: A Nation(al Stadium) divided?

    As a stadium, I still feel entirely undecided about Wembley. It's most impressive outside, lit up at night - a glowing beacon calling sports fans to its central hub. And it's a very slick operation, delivering colossal volumes of food and drink at breakneck speed, being very sensibly laid out...

    Key Worker Housing

    Guys and girls, I am considering a change in career and have been offered a position in which I would be entitled to a key worker subsidary. I've dipped very briefly in researching how much I would be entitled to but was wondering if anyone on here takes advantage of such entitlements? Does it...
