    I have always been very skeptical about spirits/ghosts etc. But last night I was up North and went to a Church which is abandoned and apparently haunted. Now joking around we all went to have a look around the church. I took a picture of two of the girls we were with and thought nothing of...

    UFO's Part II

    Given the owners of this glorious site have withdrawn my right of reply in relation to the debate about UFO's, I feel I should add the following. Unidentified flying object (commonly abbreviated UFO) is a popular term for any seemingly aerial phenomenon that is not readily identified. Research...

    No Faith In Liverpool

    Liverpool Have Not Earned My Faith Alan Hansen ruined it for everyone. Before his infamous "you'll not win anything with kids" moment on the BBC in the mid-90s, football writers and pundits had the freedom to be as damning as they liked without the fear of a nasty comeuppance. But...

  12. Slipperduke


    It still remember it vividly. I was at a friend's house on a Saturday night in 2005 and we were having a glass of wine before hitting the town. Being of Spanish descent, she had the Real Madrid - Barcelona game on the television. We had no plans to watch the whole match, we were supposed to...
  13. Why didn't we turn up?

    The fans certainly did their bit last night. The support was out of this world, especially from 4-0 down. The 2000+ who made the trip all did Southend United proud...unfortunately the players didn't. I know Doncaster are a very good side, but so are we. So what happened to us last night? I...

  16. The programme

    Don't want to be too critical on the club but some of the writing in the programme is terrible. If you have Saturday's programme you may have noticed several articles written in a style which can only be described as absolute gibberish. p24 Eric Odhiambo interview 'Eric Odhiambo may be in his...
  17. MK's film recommendation of the day.

    Cracking little ghost story on BBC4 tonight (if you can get it): Guillermo del Toro's (the bloke who directed the peerless Pan's Labyrinth) The Devil's Backbone. Wholly worth Sky +'ing or recording or staying up into the wee-small hours to watch it.

    Ghost Whisperer

    I, er I mean a "friend of mine" religously watches Ghost Whisperer and has seen all 40 odd episodes. Its about a girl who can converse with ghosts and helps them finish their unfinished business so they can cross over. Its nothing like 6th Sense at all because er he was a young boy and she...

    Ghosts - are you a believer?

    Last night I watched the Channel 4 documentary "Interview with a Poltergeist" which sparked off a bit of debate in the office this morning. I believe I saw a ghost aged about 5 in the semi-detached house in Leigh we lived in back then. It was there for several minutes going in and out of a room...
