    OK - Morecambe Saturday. Time for the 'Wise' cracks !

    I realise this may rule out the younger contingent (or smoke bomb sillies) but here's one to get us started. We got all the right points, but not necessarily in the right order!! One that we don't want to hear. What do you think of it so far ? (Rubbish)

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...
  3. Who's your favourite other posters....

    Simple enough, who from this Forum, do you look out for, who makes you laugh, who do you agree with etc etc... I've got a fair few, many of which I'll now forget, but... In no particular order... Swiss Tony - a great poster & a pleasure to speak to in real life. Dick Bates's Protege - same...

    5 Minutes of Crap

    Has anyone ever told you to type for 5 minutes and just write anything that comes into your head. I have done this a few times and it is almost like writing tourettes. Some crazy stuff seems to pops into your brain and everyone that has ever done it just cracks up at what they write. 5 Minutes...
  5. Eh?

    Can someone look on P3 of the "papering over the cracks" thread and see if there's anything vaguely to do with hacking, as NR firewall is blocking it. :stunned:

    Papering over the cracks.

    Not looking to be negative but I can't help but think tonight was yet another pretty dismal performance. Yes we did well with 10/9 men to get a point. The fundamentals for me are that we simply don't have any creativity in the side and we don't look like scoring. Aside from the fact we held out...

    England in India

    England rack up a huge 367/4 in our latest warm up match in India Jonny Bairstow cracks a breathtaking 104* from just 53 balls and there were big 50s from Cook, Kieswetter and Trott too http://www.espncricinfo.com/india-v-england-2011/engine/current/match/521216.html

    Chara cracks Pacioretty's neck - league does nothing

    Zdeno Chara, surely the ugliest man in professional sports, and chief punk of the goon squad that is the Boston Bruins, deliberately smashed Montreal forward Max Pacioretty into the 'turnbuckle' at the Bell Centre and walked away scot free. The two players had a simmering feud going after...

    Jose - Up Close and Personal

    Jose Mourinho smoulders. I wanted to get through this feature without writing anything that might worry my new wife, but there you go, I’ve blown it in the first line. But he really does. He smoulders. He walks into the sweaty, over-crowded press room and sits there in front of the lights...
  10. Lady Luck limps back into Liverpool

    Liverpool haven’t exactly had the best of luck this season. Karma paid it back with a vengeance tonight as troubled Merseyside club recorded a precious win against a Spurs side battling with them for that coveted 4th place finish. The game started at a tentative pace, with Spurs looking to make...

    Friday Night Darts Special

    Tomorrow (Friday) sees a match unlike no other this is..... Scott 'Steak Meal' Peters (TrueBlue) vs Lee 'Happy Hobbit' Venus (BlueBlood) Friday 15th January 8pm Location: Deepest Darkest Southchurch In a Darts Spectacular, the question is who will win this epic battle of Hobbit vs Beast Here...

    Mildy will be a weak link this year!

    Started off poor as expected without Dorian's protection. Poor positionally, lacks conviction and bottle and very slow getting down. Joyce probably not much better but already the cracks in his game are showing and fancy we would have a few more points already with a proper keeper. Slag me off...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-2 Mk Dons

    So, the bubble has burst as i am sure most but the fanatical on here realised it most likely would. This game showed up our woefull inadaquicies across the whole side and whilst the loanees, as well as probably clarke too, start pondering next season with thier respective sides it will be no...

    The Midfield Puzzle...

    Chelsea game aside, these last few weeks have been more and more worrying for the club... With our success over the last few years has come an ever increasing fan base with ever increasing expectations and with the team now failing to meet these expectations yesterday, for the first time, I...
  15. Did god give us chelsea?

    10th December, the club suffered a £15k CCJ in Shoreditch county court.. I know some rumours abound with regard other financial 'problems', I just wondered whether the Chelsea tie has been a timely boost or whether it will merely paper over the cracks.

    Question Interactive Novel Writing

    Ok, bit of a weird one this. I have here the first 1,500 words of a story, battered out in an afternoon to no distinct end or conclusion. It's a first draft, it hasn't been polished or checked and, critically, it doesn't have a direction. I was thinking of a British version of Lost/Journey To...
  18. Humiliation

    i read somewhere on this board our recent results were papering over the cracks,how right they were.A team supposedly contending for promotion does not lose by this much.Losing by a couple of goals is football but being humiliated is dreadfull.
  19. Hypnosis

    Last night I was out with a few of the lads, proving to be my last Uni night out before I get back to Southend for the summer. Had a few drinks at one of the lads houses, a few cracks at "The Boot", and then off to the club at around 11. Bassment, the club, have been doing Stock Exchange for a...
