    Worst FA Cup? I think not

    Monday morning was like a scene from one of those post-apocalyptic movies that usually star Mel Gibson. The old order has been shattered, the new dawn has arrived and the scattered survivors crawl from their bolt-holes to blink in confusion at the much reduced skyline and wonder if things will...

    Buying games online

    I'm getting an Xbox 360 Elite and, whilst I normally buy my DVDs from Play.com, I was just wondering if there are better sites for buying Xbox 360 games (taking into consideration they need to send to Malta and Play post for free). While I'm asking the SZ peeps for info; if I buy a year's...

    PS3 v Xbox 360

    I'm sure this isn't a new topic, but I'd like to get people's latest opinions now that the buzz and euphoria of the PS3 release has died down and more balanced opinions may be forthcoming. Now that the massive project of renovating our farmhouse is nearing its end, it's time to start getting...

    XBox360 and HDTV

    Apologies for the boring nature of the thread but I want to gauge peoples opinions on this. Yesterday I finally took delivery of an XBOX 360 Elite (no less,) after almost two years of wanting one.

    The NFL thread

    Got my e-mail giving me my password for the Giants v Dolphins game at Wembley. Undecided whether I'll actually go, as its a fair bit of money for two teams I have little interest in, but I've until Wednesday to decide. I think a few people on here said they might be going. Watched the first...

  15. Getting tickets for Spurs game

    First post. As I've 'emigrated' to London and am not one of the season-ticket holding elite I was unable to get an away ticket for the Spurs game. 'Not to worry' I thought, 'I'll just go into the home end and not wear my Southend top. Right, let's go to the Spurs...

    Article here on the OS: Youth Team off to Denmark... Thanks to the Trust, the youth team have been able to fly off to Denmark in order to take part in the elite section of the Norhalne Cup, a pan-European competition. It seems to me that this will give the youths an enormous amount of...

    I've got a great idea for a film...

    Imagine the scene. A club, once on the verge of the football Elite has freefallen down the leagues and is mere games away from relegation. An ex-player comes along and takes over in his first high profile managerial role. The sceptics are out in force, the fans are behind him for old times...
