    Apprentice week 8

    Not as good an episode as last week's, but still quite fun to watch. With Lucinda as PM for Alpha and Helene for Renaissance, the two teams had to select two items to showcase at the National Wedding Fair, with the one gaining the most orders being the winner. Helene and Sara were moved to...

    Derby v Arsenal

    There was a point in the proceedings at Pride Park when this odd football match crossed an invisible line between disaster and farce. An Arsenal cross looped into the home penalty area, but drifted a little too far and looked to be heading out of play. Derby's wardrobe-shaped Darren Moore...

    The Official St George's Day thread.

    First of all, no thread hijacking, or anti-english crap, if you don't like it or don't want to participate, then **** off - Ok, below is a colelction of many things English, songs, pictures etc etc. I am very proud of my country, although we are a soft left wing taget, i still think we hold...

    Chelsea into the final.

    When Petr Cech acrobatically tipped Steven Gerrard's late shot over the bar, he prevented Chelsea from having to win their second leg 3-0 in order to progress to the Final. When John Arne Riise stooped to head past Pepe Reina, he left the London side needing just a goalless draw to book their...

    Manuel Neuer

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...

    Test series vs New Zealand

    Have seen its likely to be Strauss at 3, and Ambrose coming into the test side. They both may well do well as the New Zealand bowling attack doesnt exactly appear first rate without Shane Bond, but the very fact these two are playing worries me about the direction we are headed and the ability...

    Trouble In Merseyside

    They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but with momentum growing at both ends of Stanley Park, it looks like now might be a good time to run for cover. Everton are more than capable of finishing fourth and, at the same time, no-one would be surprised if Liverpool snaffled a sixth European...

    This is what 'Perspective' looks like

    So, after just 4 wins and a draw in our last 6 games, and game in hand pending, there or thereabouts in the playoffs, perhaps now some people can finally understand what perspective means when it comes to the sensationalism postings that have appeared on here over the last couple of months...

    Wiggy's reserve team ratings!

    Collis 6 nothing to do, let 2 in, may have been at fault for the 2nd Hunt 6 wasn't doing great then got injured Lipstick 5 Ryman Premier would be about his level Grant 6 no better than what we have already got Moussa 6 good on the ball, never goes anywhere Harrold 5 even looks rubbish in...

    My Match Ratings

    I don't usually do this after games but i thought i would show how i rated the players' performances last night... Flahavan- 6- In all fairness he had nothing to do, there two shots on target resulted in two goals. Made a couple of good punched clearances and a couple of good catches...
  11. Maher ?

    "If the rumours that are circulating are true, then bringing Maher back would cause more of a rift than a solution to a problem. If the alleged incident is true, then it must've been a serious incident and Maher must've been at fault for Maher to be barred from the club and Moussa escape with...
  12. Ref Watch ..... x 2

    After the predicted antics from Danny McDreadful at Orient, what do the next two matches bring in the way of officials? I'm doing these two together as they are in many ways very similar. Both are in their first season as a League referee, both have refereed Southend once before. Both are quite...

    London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense

    'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when...
  14. Do i watch a different game... My Ratings

    Cant say i agree with the rating so far so here are mine - Flavs - 7 - Thought he was at fault for goal but watched replay and great strike. came out and took a few crosses/corner and made a good save from header Hunt - 4 - Like a headless chicken at times. Never got tight enough to JCR and...

    LCD TV - Comet

    All, I bought a new Samsung 40" 1080p LCD tv a few weeks ago from Comet; when I got home I put the scart from the Sky box (not HD) into the tv and it all booted up fine. My only problem is that certain channels, mainly the BBC ones don't have a very clear picture (rather grainy), I've played...

    Buying over the internet.

    I purchased an L.C.D. TV for my lad on november the 12th as a crimbo pressie. On setting the thing up on chritmas day, whenever you plugged a dvd player or his Xbox into the scart 1 ,the main picture started jumping all over the place. T.B.H I was not impressed with the tv and because it had...

    The fbm report - Bristol Rovers

    Neither myself or Matt have had the chance to upload this yet, so I'm putting it on the forum for the moment. BLUES CLUELESS AS ROVERS RETURN WITH POINTS Southend produced one of the worst displays in recent times as they slumped to yet another home defeat – this time to a lowly and very...

    Well? What do we do now..

    99.99% Of the people that read this post, need to sort themselves out. We have absolute jokers on here, who think the booing and shouting at the players today was unjustified. I ask you, did you go to the game? Today has shown, that the last 3 seasons, have really been a fluke. I ****ing love...
