    A Pig 36 Hours

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...
  2. Arsene Wenger: The Gift and The Curse.

    Such is this success of the Arsenal Ethos under Arsene Wenger that those who question him are instantly vilified by the Gunner’s faithful and, believe me, they have a point. No other Premier League manager can boast an unbeaten season, or even claim to have attributed so much to the progression...
  3. TV Help

    So, I'm taking the plunge and buying a spanking new TV. I'm going with Sony, purely for brand reliability and I'll get an extended warantee. What I want to know is, is there any real benefit of going for a 200hz Full HD TV over a 100hz? Both being LCD Screens, I have to decide whether to go...

    New 'battle of' idea

    Battle of the invention - be it printing press, innoculation, steam engine or Breville pie magic. What do you reckon? For the record my nomination is the number zero.

    Song lyric

    Guys and girls, I was driving into work towards the end of my lunch break and as usual had Kiss on the radio. Now I caught part of a song that sounded decent, but because its a short journey and because I didn't hear the beginning or the end of it, I have no idea what the song was called on...

    The 39th Shame

    I've found an interesting anomaly on the official Premier League website. Now, admittedly I'm playing fast and loose with the definition of the word 'interesting', but stick with me on this. When you click 'contact us', instead of bringing up the address of the organisation, it gives you a...

    Napier finally gets a game today, coming in in place of Dwayne Bravo. Don't fancy his chances much if he opens the bowling, as oppo openers are Gayle and Maccullum :O Cricinfo

    Five From Five

    England 2-1 Ukraine Crouch, 29 Shevchenko, 74 Terry, 85 It was his strongest display of emotion so far. As the final whistle blew, Fabio Capello marched out of his technical area, raised his clenched fists to the sky and roared triumphantly. This was a far more impressive scoreline than it...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Six

    Chapter Six - South Of The ShrimperZone? At This Time Of Night? Ricey edged away from Stokes, carefully keeping his eyes shielded from the Red Tube. As tempting as it was to allow himself to wallow in the intense glow of some very, very naughty thoughts, he knew from...well...erm, first hand...
  13. Ron's Blog 10-3-09

    Chairman's Blog Last week I touched on the backroom staff at the Club. That is not of course the backroom staff that support the football management but what I would describe as the “engine room” of the Club. I say that because I know whilst all fans will understand there has...

    Titus Astonished Us

    Every now and then, in a pressbox crammed with bitter, cynical old journalists, there is a frisson of excitement. Something wonderful ripples up and down the rows of greying, over-weight hacks, a buzz to make them believe in magic again. Usually its source is a young starlet like Jack Wilshere...

    Football Manager 2009 Review

    I have a confession to make. My name is Iain Macintosh and I'm a Football Manager-aholic. It started with the original Championship Manager, way back in 1993. It took 45 minutes to load and there were no real player names, but it changed my life. The first football management game that didn't...

    Vauxhall problem

    I drive a 1996 Vectra which keeps stalling. The engine light (orange engine-shape with a lightning strike through it) keeps coming on. I called a Vauxhall dealer who quoted me £75+VAT an hour just for a diagnosis. Anyone know a cheaper way? Thanks.

    Letter To Ashley

    After trawling through Mike Ashley's emotional 1664 word press release, Slipperduke has a few questions for him.... "I paid £134 million out of my own pocket for the club. I then poured another £110 million into the club not to pay off the debt but just to reduce it. The club is still in...
