    Poor infrastructure in sport

    While it was generally a decent weekend of Lions and boxing I watched a fair bit of other sport this morning. It is not just football with poor referees. The Lions referee was shocking. One of the judges scored the Manny fight 117-111. You have to ask whether 3 is enough. Scrums in rubgy league...

    Ron's address on "Developments with the Council" from programme v Bristol Rovers

    Ron's address on "Developments with the Council" from programme v Bristol Rovers As this had been requested by others on the match report thread, I thought I would post this so it's a bit more easily found for those interested... Includes Capital Letters where originally written! :winking:

    The Rail Network

    Now, this is something that's had me thinking for a while. I'd say it's pretty obvious that the current rail network isn't that great. Too expensive, too much overcrowding, lots of places isolated etc. So, what's the solution? In the early 60s Beeching was appointed to look at the financial...

    Question One team in Essex?

    Just wondered what peoples thoughts are on our standing alongside our friends from up North? In terms of infrastructure, ability and indeed a viable future; are Col Ewe now light-years ahead of us? One thing that remains unchanged is potential fanbase in which we are (for the moment) and always...
  5. Train fare rises

    Had to post this, as I am flabbergasted at what ATOC are saying in response to the 5.9% rise in fares that you poor sods have to put up with. Atoc said the fare increase would be used to pay for "new trains, faster services and better stations". 1) There won't be any new trains. Trains are...
  6. Dream league

    Purely hypothetical exercise but assume that the league competition has to be restarted (with players reallocated) and the football league has asked you to create a premier league for British teams to make a fresh start. Ok this isn't a realistic scenario but go with it!!! Player assets have...

    Africa

    Can somebody explain why this continent never seems to be going anywhere? why there no infrastructure being built and they seem to always be at war? Its hand out after hand out in aid, why do African nations find it so hard to lift out of this? Is this going to go on forever? Again I beg the...

    In Ireland, a Picture of the High Cost of Austerity

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/29/business/global/29austerity.html Ireland has slashed its budget, abandoned infrastructure and raised taxes to pay off with the deficit - with the result not only of deeper recession but an actual increase in borrowing. We're hearing a lot about the fate of...
  10. Blackpool Must Remain Frugal While Aboard the Gravy Train

    The moment that the seasoned Brett Ormerod poked home Blackpool’s winner against Cardiff City in the 43rd minute will no doubt go down in the history of the club and town, but it stands to reason that the club now has an important decision to make in its history. Ian Holloway, the charismatic...

  12. Monster Raving Loony Party

    Points to consider... Iraq. Polcy on Iraq: Since Iraq needs to have a proper infrastructure before they can run their own country, I propose we send our traffic wardens out to Iraq to give tickets to American Jeeps and Tanks illegally parked thereby raising much needed revenue for the Iraq...
  13. Labour Dont vote for these .....

    Aside from that horrible website, that im finding almost painful to read . A replication of the separation of 50% of humanity (again why ??) Repetitionof figures to the point of nonsensical rambling. Deliberate attacks on the other parties that Libs and Tories dont seem (unless their hidden...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...
  15. Pay Up Pompey, Pompey Pay up

    It never rains, it pours... Except in Portsmouth, where the football club seems to permanently be in the grips of a category 5 hurricane. The south coast club are gripped in a relegation battle they seem destined to lose and the mystery surrounding their owner seems to deepen by the day. The...

    Millwall Last Season: 5th Manager: Kenny Jackett Key Player: Nadjim Abdou, Midfielder. Prediction: 6th Those delightful Bermondsey boys were incredibly unlucky in the Play-Off final last term, losing to Matt Sparrow at Wembley. Keeping their squad together and another season under Kenny...

    I feel that I should be letting you have my thoughts and feelings about the season now it is effectively at an end but I promised that I would answer all the questions that are put to me and I am continuing to do so. However I will need to bring this to an end soon as it was only meant to span...

    History Will Reward Liverpool

    This week, a friend of mine bound for pastures new bestowed upon me her collection of old football magazines. I can't begin to explain how exciting this is to someone like me. You see, my friend's magazine collection is taller than her and it stretches back through the years to historic...

  20. Breaking News Ron's blog 24/02/09

    Whilst the rest of us were watching the match, Ron was emailing us his latest thoughts: I want to begin this week by thanking all our supporters who were able to attend the match at Colchester this weekend. The 1800 or so who made the journey across Essex showed, once again, what passion is...
