  2. New T20 Format

    What are people's thoughts on the new t20 league? 8 teams based on cities. I would assume our nearest one will probably play at Stratford (if allowed) I think it's a good idea although worried about the negative effect it will have on the county t20 league however the money they are talking...

  7. Would It Be That Bad Staying In League 2?

    Whilst climbing the ladder is fantastic and of course the football is a lot better, but for next season only, would it be that bad staying in this division? I am coming purely a proximity point of view. With Stevenage looking certain for the drop from League 1 and Col Ewe being in the mix for...
  8. Oh Dear China

    Just seen on the news that all the Chinese wear protective masks in the Cities. Even I was shocked to see how bad the polluted smog was. Even with masks it affects their health and unborn babies. Can't be good for the planet either. An absolute disgrace.

Martin has a reputation for making enemies and saying what people want to hear while doing things they'd rather he didn't. Not many people would...

    Question DVD box sets of distinction?

    Any recommendations? I have just purchased the Mysterious Cities of Gold box set (all 39 episodes) for just under £18 quid on Amazon for the kids. Fantastic stuff and each episode is followed by a mini documentary so it's educational too!
