    Thorne vs Corbyn

    In the Labour New Leader thread, Uncle Leo has claimed that Corbyn has as much chance as Willie Thorne has in becoming Prime minister. My own take is that if Thorne can over come illness, and adversity he could take Corbyn on... and beat him. So zoners who's it to be, in a straight choice for...

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...

    Yes I know podcasts are old school, but I've just started listening to this one (recommended to be by a work colleague) and am hooked :stunned: I'm umming & erring each episode as to whether he's guilty or not. In brief; based in the US, a guy has been locked up for the last 15 years for the...

    Collymore Racist Abuse

    Don't know if anyone has noticed but Sir Stanley is receiving some down right disgusting racist abuse from Liverpool fans after he claimed Suarez dived in their game against Villa. Have we go back to the 80s what is wrong with people? Just because you don't agree with someone opinion doesn't...

    Burton Keeper

    So is he allowed to incite the crowd? Gave it large at the final whistle that sent the fans into a bit of a fury. Spoke the a steward on the way out who claimed to have seen nothing, probably too busy watching the fans. Spoke to Dave Jobson on the way out who confirmed that he had been told...

    I know that I tend to recycle this old chestnut every time we are going to appear on TV. However, things on the web change so quickly that people may be able to share advice on any new, free football sites that are likely to relay the match on Saturday. This is a great help for those who...
  20. 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...
