    Improving the Olympics

    Pubey and I have both been listening to a podcast featuring Malcolm Gladwell where, among other things, he comes up with a suggestion for improving the track and field - namely, moving event such as high jump to a smaller arena where spectators can focus on that event, rather it being lost in a...
  6. Question next season

    I realise its pretty early to speculate as we are still an outside chance of featuring in the playoffs, but i for one dont believe we will dropping 5 points out of 6 at home to two lower teams ,says to me that the squad have been over performing,anyway my question is what do you people believe...

  8. Question Managerial experience and contacts.

    Do you think that given our managers profile, compared to many lower league managers, and his experience, we appear to have our fair share of aspiring young players/fitness finding experienced players featuring from top level clubs? I had assumed when PB came that this could be a beneficial...

  13. Did anyone else notice....

    Last night on BT sports watching the Gills crash out to Brackley (featuring Brett Solkhon who grew up on Canvey) I'm certain I saw Phil Brown lurking outside the makeshift commentary box up the precarious looking ladder. He wasn't under cover with the BT commentators one of whom was "Mad Dog"...

    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...

    Biggest load of drivel I've ever heard

    Not sure how they got my details, but some loons have sent me an email suggesting I sign a petition to protest about there being no women (other than HM The Queen) on British bank notes. Whoever wrote this needs to get out more. "Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, has announced...
