  3. TV screws

    Without wanting to take away from Pubey's DIY threads, I've recently moved into a new place and while I had my TV mounted on the wall where I used to live, the landlord's a bit funny about fixtures and fittings, so I'm having to place it back on its stand. That wouldn't be a problem at all...

  6. Smart businessman, or outright scoundrel?

    Over the course of the weekend I was tasked with finding a friend of mine a ticket for V Festival as she'd been ripped off on eBay and was in a bit of a panic about missing out. As it happens, I know someone from Uni who's a bit of a dab hand with these occasions. As something of a prologue...

The thing is, when my Dad made the comment you're still working then - they said is there anything you want to know about...
  9. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Hull City 3-1 Southend United

    My first game of the season and I was really impressed with our performance and the confidence our players displayed when in possession, despite the fact that Hull fielding a weakened side. Mildy - 5 - I'm afraid he was the one player who didn't earn his money tonight. He had pretty much...

Here we are at the end of best season we've had in over 10 years, beating Man U, Brum, West Brom, Sunderland etc 3 years after we looked like swapping places with Canvey Island and our last game is a bank holiday trip to the south coast to a cracking ground against a cracking...
