    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...

    Mayweather v Pacquiao

    Listeners on Radio 5 suggested names for this fight. The winner in the zimmer! The fighters with arthritis! :hilarious:
  3. Kidnapped girls forced to convert and sold for $12 each.

    MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — With a malevolent laugh, the leader of Nigeria's Islamic extremists tells the world that more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls have all been converted to Islam and married off, dashing hopes for their freedom. "If you knew the state your daughters are in today, it might...

    Theme Tune

    Hi, Just passing some boring time at work. I was at a fight night last night and the amount of fighters coming out to "blowing bubbles" (Turns my stomach) i wonder if we will ever have a "Theme" tune that can become iconic to the club for generations?
  5. BOXING: Khan vs Mayweather

    From what I've heard (as I said on another thread) this fight is apparently signed, and they're due to announce it soon, so I thought i'd create this for the build-up to the fight next May. So how do people see this going? Anyone give Khan a chance at all? I'm saying Mayweather wins by...
  6. Mma fighter training with the superb ben clarkson

    A few of our fighters have been training with the superb Ben Clarkson recently one of them is Southend boy Walter Gahadza, last season the Southend team trained in the gym with our fighters which was entertaining especially seeing who really were the hard men of the team and who were the...

    Foo Fighters Gig

    Got back about 10 mins ago. I have to say, it was brilliant. Zane Lowe was the DJ throughout the night inbetween sets from Futureheads, Supergrass and of course the Foos. All kicked off at half 5 with the Futureheads then Foos came on finally at just gone 8pm. Dave Grohl can really get a crowd...

    FOO Fighters

    anyone going today or tomorrow?
  10. Russia: What are you playing at?

    On top of last weeks news story that Russia were to restart Cold War patrols across their bordering oceans, flying within 100 miles of US soil, This morning I read that a Russian Bomber, thought to be on a spy mission, was intercepted by 2 RAF fighters dangerously close to British Soil...

    V Festival

    How many zoners were there then? Brilliant weekend I must say! Babyshambles, The Coral, Ocean Colour Scene, Editors, Jet, Kasabian, Fratellis, The Cribs, James, Killers. Fantastic. Highlight of the weekend - Foo Fighters - can only be described as Awesome!
  12. You're organising a festival, which bands would you choose to play...?

    I was day dreaming last night about which bands i would invite to a festival if i was to organise one. The rules are, to keep things simple, you can't invite bands that are no longer together. This isn't a retrospective thing- they must be bands that are still together and recording music today...

    Favourite Sport

    OK - quite simple this one, really. Which sport do you most enjoy to watch - whether live or televised. For many of you this will be football, understandably - but if it's a close second or joint favourite please say. For me, it's Boxing - I've been a boxing fan longer than a football fan...

    The Dave thread

    Plenty time spent on the train Saturday, so plenty time to come up with some nonsense talk. Anyway, two Dave-related themes came up. At one point, I suggested that the day when Channel 4 do a list show called "Top 100 people called Dave" was probably not far away (seeing as they do these list...

    Foo Fighters - Hyde Park this Saturday...

    If anyone is interested, there is a chance that I will not be able to make this concert on Saturday - so there will be 3 tickets going at £30.00 each. The final decision on whether we go or not will be later today, but I'm posting this now to give everyone a longer chance to decide if they go...
  16. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

    Foo Fighters Live in Roswell

    Just been watching most of an hour and a half long video that can be watched for free through RealPlayer's 'Realguide' or hopefully Through this link. I can't believe how docile the crowd are for a Foo Fighters gig. At one point Grohl plays in the crowd and they all seem...

    Foo Fighters - Astoria Gig....

    I know this might sound like a strange question.. but did anyone from here attend the Foo Fighters gig at the Astoria in 2002, when Ash supported.. and if so, did they do so in their home shirt?

    Top Live performances

    For me, after football (and sex!) there is nowt better than live music. Lets have your top 5 live musical performances you've witnessed in person... 1) Faith No More, Brixton Academy (weeks before they split ) 2) Green Day, V98 (I think) - No better band for entertainment. 3)...
