    Question Accounts and the Umbongo - Update!

    So I was thinking last night about the reason that the embargo was in place was that the Accountants would not release the completed Financial Statements until they had received payments (and rightly so, they aren't a charity and they provided a service). Now this got me worried again as it...

    Monkey Tennis / Ghost Hunting with The Only Way is Essex

    Seeing the second of the two programmes in the title of the thread advertised on ITV2, I was reminded of a scene from Alan Partridge which (I've just found out spurred the phrase in the first part of the thread title). "In one scene the eponymous character of Partridge, a failed chat show...

    Just like watching Dream Team...

    ...Well thats how I feel with Southend United the past couple of years, each week is like a far fetched episode of the old Sky One football series Dream Team.

    England Have Turned Me Grey

    This week, I made the shocking discovery that I'm going grey. Underneath my enormous thatch of long brown hairs, two brigades of white ones have been outflanking me just above the ears in a slow, silvery advance that had gone entirely unnoticed. The sad thing is that I can pinpoint the origin of...

    Help required from da kidz

    You might remember that, this time last season, an Irish newspaper commissioned me to write a fictional account of an intercepted SMS conversation between Carlo Ancelotti and Rafa Benitez. The catch was that both managers had to be portrayed as being well versed in the patois of the nation's...

    It seems that tactical voting and people swapping votes from one to the other got a bit too complicated on my last thread about the fictional SZ-selected SUFC Team Bus. So, we're going to keep this one simple.  There is one place left on the team bus.  And two people left to fill it. Who are...
