  1. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...

    Fooled by Randomness

    If a test for some disease is 95% accurate,and the disease affects one person in a thousand,and you go for a test and it comes back positive,what's the probability that you have the disease? Answers and your reasoning please.
  3. Hands Up Who Paid for That...

    I'll admit it. I paid the full £14 to watch 76 seconds of boxing last night. I was fooled by a Jewish New Yorker who talked a good game, but failed to mark his words with any kind of action. After taking two attempts and a stripping to make the 10 stone weight limit, Dmitriy Salita informed a...

    The White and Black All Blacks Conquer Marseilles

    The All Blacks just dealt with England at Twickenham, tonight they obliterated France 12 - 39.......a display of awesome power, from what one of my knowledgeable colleagues down here, described as a weak New Zealand side. Don't be fooled into believing that the All Blacks saw us as the important...
  5. Dan Harding - good reception

    Hope he gets one. Not as much as Clarkey obviously but to be fair to Harding he worked hard, performed very well and also said when his loan ended he'd like to come back. If someone shows the maximum effort while they're here they get my vote. Can't blame him for going to Southampton, they could...

    Is Ashley The April Fool?

    When the watching world assumes that your latest managerial recruitment is an April Fool's prank, it doesn't exactly bode well for the future. Alan Shearer must have often dreamed about the reaction he would get if he ever slipped into the St James Park hotseat, but I bet he didn't expect...
  7. Queen/the ban.......my view

    cheers to everyone who supported me through the diffulcult times,blimey during the ban i have stood in the corner wearing a long pointed hat for 3 days!! the ban itself, the mods/owners acted correctly and fair play to them for showing common sense in reducing the ban from 1 month . the...

    Arsenal v Reading

    Arsenal returned to winning ways at a freezing cold Emirates Stadium with a convincing 2-0 victory over a Reading side who are nose-diving at the worst possible time. Only a combination of fine goalkeeping, desperate clearances and Arsenal's own profligacy prevented this from becoming a...

    Once and for all - Harrold

    I am conducting a poll to see exactly what people really think of Harrold and I am also going to make it annonymous so that voting is fair. Seems that he draws a bit of a divide which is confusing to me as I really cant see what he is bringing to the team because it certainly isnt goals! I...
  12. Southend Uniteds number 1 - and what Tilson should have done.

    Darryl - welcome back - the grass was never greener for me - just a few fools on here fooled by the tape the other fellow puts around his ankles - check my posts Darryl - not a wobble from me. And Tilly ....well this a bit of a mess - out of two cups already - and we were comfortable enough up...

    Moaning Burnley

    It would appear that Burnley manager Steve Cotterill felt that his side didn't deserve to lose. I'm sorry, but it's teams like Burnley and the way they play that ruin football for the paying public. Cotterill said he felt sorry for the fans who had made the trip down south to see their team lose...

  16. Atmosphere tonight

    From my kitchen via Radio 5 Live the atmosphere sounded great tonight, was it great, or was I just fooled by Radio trickery? Also I hope Tilly got a superb reception, and no negative sh!te

    Reserves Match Report - SUFC 3 LTFC 1

    Was it the unseasonally warm weather or was it the fact that I'd only recently found out that STHs get into reserves games for nothing ? It matters not. The important thing is that after 33 years of patiently and quietly watching the best team in the world I finally broke my duck to watch my...

    Here at Essex University, the Scum are offering free travel to the game, tickets, and programme to anyone at the uni today, so lets hope they get battered, as they are trying to brinwave these poor individuals! 3 from my flat have gone, if they come back and say Col Ewe were good, i will...
