  1. EEEP from a players perspective!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41839083 I found this an interesting. I initially clicked on it because I thought 'It really is, Finley Burns cost £175k' but it wasn't what I thought at all. If a player needs to move to a lower category academy for whatever reason, the new club could be...
  2. The Big Dady


    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...

    Brown on the radio

    Just heard PB in his post match interview. Not his usual chirpy interview at all. Said that the speculation re his future needs to be sorted out between him and Ron. Therefore - he wants to go and Ron won't let him. There is no other explanation. The trouble is, for that to happen then we...

    The Youth system and compensation thread

    I thought it might be interesting to have a thread to keep track of the former youth products stolen away from us, for whom we are eligible to receive compensation for based on their future success. Can someone (ESB?) remind us of the criteria and how this system works?
  6. Levi Bellfield

    This sorry excuse for a man has been awarded £4500 in compensation for being attacked in jail! The judge should be locked up for awarding it. Disgraceful all round,And Bellfield should suffer 24/7 for his hideous crimes.

    Cup success and the price we are paying for it

    When Paul Sturrock has the time to reflect of this season, will he be ironically regretting the fact that his luck in Cup Competitions changed? It seems to be the fashion at the moment on here to furnish reasons for our expected failure again in gaining promotion from the basement...
  8. Question Orient away tickets

    Ive just been down to my local post office collection place to pick up 2 Orient away tickets and the idiots have lost them. Does anyone know how sales have gone coz I might have to ask for compensation and then we can still pay on the gate?

    Apology 50 years too late?

    For those of us born around the time of this, you tend to think "there, but for the grace of God." The deformities of babies born as a result of thalidomide is known to most of us I should think. As one sufferer says in this report, these unfortunate people all need medical care that costs, so...

    Aldershot Town & Ron Martin's act of generosity

    So this morning I receive a letter from Ron Martin, which reads as follows; Dear Mr Fitzgerald, As many of you will know the income received from the sale of tickets relating to League games is always retained in full, by the Home Club. Whilst it is certainly not for me to judge the policy of...

    Every cloud .............

    Loss v Swindon has saved me (bearing in mind I have to fund SS Jnr too) maybe: 1. Away leg v Barnet £20 petrol, say £35 for two tickets, £20 for food, beer and prog, so £75 2. Home leg v Barnet (will have won it already by away leg but still gotta go) £15 petrol, £35 tickets, £20 food etc, so...

    Dale Farm vs Stray Dog Home

    And so Basildon Council decide to spend millions reclaiming Dale Farm and now decide just a few hundred metres away to give away green belt land to allow a dogs home for strays to be built. Seriously Tony Ball, what are you doing?! Even the usual right of centre readers of the Echo are...

    Tube Strikes

    Not on the politics sub-forum as I don't see this as political but common sense. I note that the RMT intend to strike 2 x 3 days over two weeks in order to save the jobs of, er, TWO of their members. Here's a shock, they just happen to be senior union activists. I don't wish to be...
