  1. To be PC or not to be PC.

I took the link down because when i opened...
  2. So what do we know?

    1) PB may or may not be signing a new contract. 2) FF may or may not be close to starting. 3) RM may or may not be in a position to deliver. 4) We may or may not be able to bring new players in. 5) We may or may not be a dead duck in the water. All in all its good to be a Blues fan. Its that...

    Labour A few tips for Wallace

    Ed [Wallace] Milliband is visiting Thurrock today [crosshairs mounted on front of car, just in case] I wonder if he is going to follow the tips suggested below. Ed Miliband is giving a speech in Thurrock this morning, the crucial number 2 target seat for Labour where the party have just lost...

    No Forte deal

    so news reached my ears earlier today that the Forte deal is a dead duck ... did seem a bit of a long shot . however , i am to understand that we are still on the process of trying to sign another striker (possibly a Hull City connection) Names I've heard mentioned are Craig Fagan and Caleb...

    Best man speech

    Finally breaking my duck this weekend, acting as best man for my good mate Tom. Not nervous or anything - public speaking comes relatively easily to me - but I am struggling a little for material. He's a great lad, but there aren't many dark tales from his past to which I can allude! Similarly...
  6. Interview Questions...

    http://www.glassdoor.com/blog/25-tough-interview-questions-uk-edition/ My favourite is: "Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or 100 duck sized horses?” Any example from the Zoners?

    Is the criticism of Brown harsh?

    Firstly I don't want this thread to end up as a slagging off of PB. Emotions are running high after the highs and lows of today. My opinion is that he got it wrong today, both Moshni and Straker playing and out of position was clearly not right, but on another day and with a bit more help from...

    US Election 2012: Why is Obama favourite on UK betting sites?

    All of the polls in the US have Romney ahead with his lead growing, and with Obama burdened by the mounting questions about the handling of the Libyan Embassy attack, that's unlikely to change in the next week. Unless a Saville-esque revelation about Romney is revealed this weekend, Obama looks...

    Complete contrasts: what's your experience?

    Tomorrow courtesy of some corporate thing I am off to the Emirates to see Arsenal v Man City. Top of the Premiershite stuff with two clubs who have everything to play for, and putting the overpaid egotistical attitudes of the players to one side, a game packed full of players with immense...

    It could be worse. We could be Grimsby.

    Now, we thought it was bad here. This taken, complete with gratutious swearing, from a Grimsby forum think almost sums up the feeling in our little corner of Essex..... but not quite ;) Now I'm as optimistic as anyone when it comes to this **** of a football club, but after this...

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...

    Nostalgia: it ain't as good as it use to be

    Playing Charlton always seemed to produce a cracking game, so what are your most memorable moments from this fixture over the years? * Winning 3-0 at the Valley. A teenage Leo Roget made his debut, Steve Tilson (whatever happened to him?) scored with his right foot and whilst we are still...

    Damn You, Bullard!

    Rest assured, Jimmy Bullard's goalscoring celebrations will be the water-cooler topic of conversation this morning. Bright, funny and naughty. It was physical comedy at its best. But did the tousled cockney give a moment's thought to the floodgates that his finger-pointing may have poked open? I...
  18. Hayemaker Fires His Warning Shots

    With his majority decision victory over Nikolai Valuev, David Haye duly delivered what he had promised, a shock to the system of the heavy weight division and a special warning shot to the Brothers Klitschko. He's cleaning this division of the rubbish that has populated it of late, and the...

    Ron speaks

    Chairman's Blog Firstly let me apologise to those supporters who feel I have been conspicuous by my absence. Having said that I would write three blogs in the close season, I issued two. The third was to cover the new stadium plans. Over the years I hope everyone agrees that communication...
