    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...
  2. Desire?

    Much as I dislike McCormack, thought it was a telling interview on BBC Essex. He said that what was said should really stay in the dressing room, but he said lots of fingers pointed (probably at him) as players lack desire to defend properly and give the ball away too much. Sounded very down...

    OD - Matchday 7

    Todays encounter sees me taking on the team in 6th place in my division, 1 spot and 4 points below me. The top 4 teams are going to saty as they are so it's results amongst the bottom 4 teams which will determine who goes down automatically and who goes into the play offs. So far I've beaten...

    Once again the shadows of miss-management and uncertain future lurk over Roots Hall like a dark cloud growing on the horizon while us supporters on the ground will have to take the brunt of this uncertain future one thing we can do remains clear and that’s stand and be counted on Friday...

    You know what..?

    There are so many threads going on about the club, Ron, Tilly, HMRC etc, I have no idea what's really going on! What I want to say is that we should all get behind the club and management and all keep our fingers (and everything else for that matter) crossed that we can weather these storms...

    quality story from b3ta.com: Thinking about it, a hundred-or-so people have seen my c*ck over the years. And some of them - a pitifully small percentage of those people – actually wanted to see my throbbing cervix scratcher; whereas the others sort of had it thrust upon them... On the...

    Oil Spillage recommendations.

    Not sure if anyone has ever had to deal with an oil spillage in a pond before? Approximately 3 liters of cooking/vegetable oil has been decanted in to my garden pond and i am desperately trying to fix the problem. I am currently overflowing the pond to try and sift of the oil as it obviously...

    Grays.. more weird goings on

    From the BBC site, that is one weird club. Grays look to appoint new manager Grays Athletic are holding interviews for a new manager even though current boss Gary Phillips has not been sacked. Phillips and his assistants Alan Lewer and John Yems are among those to have applied for the...

    OD - Week 12

    ShrimperZone CC v Parkway Sports 4th v 2nd. We go GFI as we're fully sublime however so are they so I expect they will too. They have 6 100k+ players, up till this week it was 7 but they sold the top rated one on Tuesday and don't seem to have replaced him yet. It was a fairly brutal beating...

    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...
  14. Ref Watch Another season .... another refwatch

    Man in charge of our curtain raiser on Saturday is Steve Cook from Godalming in Surrey. Although this is his third season, at 24 he remains one of the youngest officials on the list. He has officiated at Roots Hall twice before, both two seasons ago; the draw with Cheltenham and the win against...

    I am Trying To Learn To Play The Guitar.

    .....and my fingers f*****g hurt. Ok, so I thought in the post Mrs LF era, I'd do something different. So I've invested in an electric guitar (no gay acoustic **** for me, its not rock n roll enough). It's black and has knobs on it. I can play all the basic chords apart from F coz that's dead...

    Play Offs

    Up the Irons v ShrimperZone CC What more motivation could I need? Sadly I'll be in the air for much of the match. Squad are fully fit, GFI engaged and fingers crossed we can finally make it into II. Anyone else playing off?
