  1. Time for a Q&A?

    Hasn't been one for a while and there are some serious issues to be asked. Ron said that if work didn't start in 2013, it was "back to the drawing board". What exactly does he mean by this? With Sainsbury funding the 3 stands with the 4th to be built later, how much can we cut back? For the...

    Refereeing questions.

    1. Why in the milwall game didn't the fourth official hold up the board with 25 added minutes? 2. In a penalty shoot out, when is the ball deemed to be dead? Reason I ask, there are clips on youtube in which the ball hits the bar, whizzes into the air (cue goalie celebration) yet the ball comes...
  3. Why bas vegas ?!?

    I have promised a young lad at work a beer or two after his role in yesterday's victory. He was staying at the Holiday Inn in Basildon, where he saw in the New Year. As he headed down for breakfast the following morning he was accompanied in the lift by some Porstmouth players. They asked his...

    Does anyone have any helpful suggestions or ideas as to why I don't seem able to download any email attachments at the moment? Started last weekend, tried to download reports for our Trust committee meeting on Monday, couldn't, didn't really worry too much, but have tried since with other...

    Question Penalty Charge Notice

    I received a letter in the post on Saturday to inform me that I haven't paid for a PCN for "Parking adjacent to a dropped footway" on 09/10 Now, I never had a PCN played on my windscreen on this date (or any other), and so now the charge has lost the half price 28 period, and they now want £70...
  8. Strikers Who Leave And Score Goals...

    Matt Harrold - Useless for us, only scored 3 in 2 seasons. Has since gone on to play for Wycombe, Shrewsbury & currently Bristol Rovers. Has scored a total of 45 goals since leaving. Gary Hooper - Usually 3rd choice behind Freddy & Foran (Unbelievably). Currently with Norwich in the Prem. Since...

    Nicolau dived didn't he?
  10. New Unofficial Fanzine

    I have the idea of writing and releasing a weekly UNOFFICIAL fanzine. Whether i will need the club's permission or not is another question... To be sold/given away outside the ground at all home & away games... If i was to sell them, would be a measly 20p... UTB!!

    Was Corr's first an O.G.?

    I thought at the time that Corr didn't actually get a touch on the first and it was an own goal by the defender. The TV isn't clear but certainly it looks as though the brilliant cross from Hurst doesn't get near Corr's head and there is a defender in front of him who appears to put the ball...

  13. How to get rid of a manager you didn't want in the first place.

    Levski Sofia hired Ivaylo Petev yesterday, but fans were unhappy after he admitted to being fan of their arch rivals, CSKA Sofia. They were so angry that during his 1st press conference, a few of them forced him to take off his training tops as he left the room topless. Today he quit...

    England for the English ?

    Not a BNP thread this one... The new rules state that a player who is resident in a nation for X amount of year (I believe 5) can play for that nation as long as they havent played for another. Therefore the likes of Arteta and Almunia have been touted for England in the past and now Januzaj...
