    My friendly invasion - Its was all big Bill Garners fault!

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday. The reason for me being prostrate on this beautiful Sunday was I was watching a one day match between Essex and it could have been Warwickshire or...

    Question Time, Brand v Farage - who will win?

    Who do you think will win? (not who do you want to win) My money is on Farage to come out on top because he has had a lot of practice and Brand often resorts to snide insults when on the back foot.

    TFI Monday

    I bet the Mods all breathe a sigh of relief after a weekend! There always seems to be a plethora of arguments, provocative posts, insults and subsequent banning orders, which seem to be all the time now whether we win or lose (more when we lose, obviously). It does all get a bit tiresome...

    EDL on Southend seafront.

    I drove past the seafront Saturday afternoon and noticed a heavy police presence. Outside one of the pubs was a group of people, some wearing EDL sweatshirts exchanging insults with a group of youths of various ethnicities. I later heard the EDL had arranged a meeting in one of the pubs...

    This was written by Peter Ndlovu in an online newspaper column. --- This month our regular columnist Peter Ndlovu recalls an unsavoury incident from the African Cup of Nations. Things have been quiet this month so when I sat down to write this article my mind went blank. Although the following...
  6. Harshest Musician on Musician insults

    Some of these made me properly LOL! 30. Wayne Coyne on Arcade Fire “I get really tired of their pompousness [sic]… We’ve played some shows with them and they really treat people like ****. People treat Arcade Fire like they’re the greatest thing ever and they get away with it… They have good...
  7. Blue Voice Today

    Moving to the front in the West Stand along with the use of the drum in the last few months has generally improved the match atmosphere and the support for the team which is a good thing. Today though in my opinion this section was not on it's best form although some positive noise was made...

    Memory Lane Obscure old sayings/shouts/insults

    For some unknown reason the old shout (aimed at people on bikes) came into my mind today. Does anyone else recall "Get off and Milk it" it used to get shouted regularly in my Childhood but I last heard it in the mid 80's aimed at me whilst I was running !

    Trio Walcott!

    Call off the search and return the helicopters back to base. The England team, missing since the summer of 2004, have been found alive and well in Zagreb. After what had seemed like an eternity of dour, artless whimpering, the three lions found their voice and roared back into life against...
  10. Don't p*ss off Tony Yeboah

    Just got this in an email from a mate: "This month our regular columnist Peter Ndlovu recalls an unsavoury incident from the African Cup of Nations. Things have been quiet this month so when I sat down to write this article my mind went blank. Although the following tale has very little to...

    Liverpool v Chelsea Champions League

    Tonight, for the third time in four years, Liverpool meet Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Football’s most festering rivalry is back and the dirty war has already begun in earnest. There’s something very strange about the relationship between these two teams. They are...

    Carlisle Fans

    Did anyone have much contact with Carlisle fans before/after the game? I stayed up in Longtown the night before and everyone I met was very friendly and welcoming. However.... Upon arriving in Carlisle, what a disappointment. Loads of bitter, rude fans and lots of chavs hurling insults and...

    Wicked Whispers

    Extraordinary scenes at The Emirates this week where journalists in town for the big clash between Arsenal and Liverpool were served up with a little sporting hors deouvre as two respectable, well known British hacks went for each other's throats and had to be seperated by their colleagues. The...

    why has the school insults thread been closed?

  15. Best moment for me Saturday -

    was when Mark Gower completely mi**** a cross or shot over the North Bank and .......the moaners started and the a few insults were hurled and you see his head go down BUT then a few people started clapping and shouting encouragement and appreciation and getting off their seats to clap and he...

    OK Aberdeen Shrimper, you did kind of ask for this; The following are all verbatim quotes from posts that you have made to this forum. 1. Thug/Wannabe Hardman - "What goes around comes around, and if it is indeed true then this will not go away and there will be reprisals" Talking about O's...

    As I mentioned on a thread yesterday me and a few mates have started in a 6aside league in Laindon, anyway yesterday we had a match against a physical team who were probably all in their 30s or late 20s. In trying to get the ball before the keeper one of our players clipped the goalies leg. The...

    I am a season ticket holder at Oxford and I have never experienced better travelling fans. I spoke to many of you in the bowling alley bar and it was a welcome change from some of the insults that I have had from other teams.

    You know you live in Spain when ...

    1) You think adding lemonade, fanta or even coke to red wine is perfectly acceptable. Especially at lunch time. 2) You can't get over how early bars & clubs shut back home - surely they're shutting just as you should be going out? 3) You aren't just surprised that the plumber/decorator has...
