    Brexit to create 30,000 jobs

    Great news, my patriotic friends! The great Brexit gamble is set to create 30,000 British jobs for British* people! The EU have only 24,000 of these jobs currently so that's one in the eye for Juncker and his cronies. These jobs are set to come about in the civil service to implement the...

    Latest Rumours Sokolik the only trialist to be offered a deal

    Say the Echo. A good player in there somewhere but not sure he's an improvement on what we've got and he was far from convincing for me last night. Murray could have been a cheap option, hoping this means we've got another striker target lined up.

    Anyone else out there that can't grow a beard?

    I am 42 and can't even grow a convincing Ian Beale moustache. Is this normal? Anyone else out there that can't grow a beard?
  6. Danny Webb, Nicky Nicolau, Jack Paxman

    All played for Chelmsford City last night against Conference South new boys Concord Rangers. Webb and Nicolau made up part of an unconvincing City back four whilst Paxman was a second half substitute for the clarets. City were lucky to get away with a point as Concord bossed a one sided second...

    Breaking News BBC - Cresswell will need 'convincing'

  8. TV Highlights JPT Final

    We really didn't play well as we know, Straker & Mohsni out of position, definate penalty on Britt in first half, how the ref waves it away is unbelievable. The second pen claim ain't as convincing & the foul on Mohsni for second goal, seen them given but he should really be a bit more aware of...

    Great win but this week's games will show just how far Southend United have come

    GAVIN Tomlin and Britt Assombalonga both bagged braces as Southend United continued their recent upturn in form with a convincing and incredibly comfortable 4-1 win at Torquay on Saturday. More...
  10. Question Is Corr worth sticking with?

    I have to question whether he is a help or a hindrance. He looks short of fitness, immobile and unless the ball its dropped right to him he would not spare a bead of sweat to get to it. Yes he has scored a few but he has missed more sitters than a blind assassin. In fact his goals have only got...

    R2 - Kaley Cuoco v Danielle Lloyd

    2 strong victories in R1 saw these two through, although Danielle had the tougher of the two ties up against Lauren Laverne. Knowing DtS, he's kept some convincing arguments back for the later stages, can Mr Gilbo and his girl convince SZ otherwise?

    Dwight Yorke - Born to Score

    BORN TO SCORE? What would you do if you were a professional footballer? How would you act? I know what you're going to say, you're going to say the same as me. You're going to say that you'd give it everything. You're going to say that you'd be tee-total, that you'd train hard, that you'd...

    England Must Keep Their Focus

    CAN YOU SEE ENGLAND MAKING IT NINE FROM NINE? I don't know yet, it depends what my broadband connection is like. I just hope that the England players are more enthusiastic about 'The Match That No-One Will Watch' than the England supporters. Fabio Capello's side have, of course, already sealed...
