    Theresa May - Dead woman walking?

    The old adage of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer appears to have finally backfired for Theresa May where Boris Johnson is concerned. I don't pay anywhere near as much attention to politics as I used to, but it does look as if Theresa has lost a lot of confidence and respect...

    I did not go to the game today cannot see how Brown cannot see the massive problem in the middle .. Exactly what is his thinking on the key part of the team ?? I know some people like Timlin but I think hes well out of his depth and makes it a lot worse by shooting his mouth off and giving...

  6. Southend Utd - An adventure story

    You enter the Changing Rooms at boots and laces. The room is empty but you hear the sound of a shower running in the cubicles. On a pile of men's clothes lies a mobile phone. The phone is ringing. Do you: A. Go into the shower room B. Answer the phone C. Leave the changing rooms
