    Danny Galbraith

    Gills winger on trial. You think Mackail-Smith had injury problems, this guy has had more injuries than Dave Morley played long balls. Found this which was interesting http://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/sport/galbraith-thankful-for-barretts-intervention-32172/

    Syria; intervention or steer clear

    As I see it Syria is gradually getting more and more onto our TVs and involved with from UK, EU, USSR (whatever its called now!) and US policy. Is it time for the 1st world countries to step in? or should it be left to the Muslims to fight it out and escalate the conflict, openly, into what it...

    Spectacular days out!

    A bit of self-promotion but I'm looking for other stories as well. My day has involved conquering my mortal fear of heights by doing the Skywalk at Macao Tower (google it). Started off badly when the daft bint I went with decided to tell me just when we'd handed over ferry tickets that she'd...

    Faul McCartney

    Now, as we are all very well aware the original Paul McCartney was decapitated in a car crash in November 1966 and replaced by a (vague) lookee-likee, albeit with a different shaped face thanks to M15 intervention. Obviously the clues were all there in Beatles songs, album covers and...
  7. The problem with football...

    Hi all...these days I usually respond to threads something around 7-pages in which takes about 2 seconds thought and isn't very serious, just the usual tired crap of taking the **** out of RM, (which lets face it isn't hard, I mean every time he opens his mouth to the press it's bloody hilarous...

    Paxman's newsnight interview with Noam Chomsky

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/9418922.stm The best thing I've seen on the BBC in a long time.His case for non-intervention in Libya is compelling. I loved his comment(towards the end of the interview)that blind belief in the self regulation of "free" markets was fanaticsm...

    Prisoner Voting

    What do we think? I think the majority of prisoners should be allowed to vote. Yes they should be punished, but ultimately these people need rehabilitation and reintegrated. By not allowing them the vote we are further distancing them from society. It's something I've believed quite a while...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...
  12. Rules Are Rules. Unless You're Portsmouth.

    When Portsmouth’s 4th owner of the season presumably won the club in a game of pass-the-financially-defunct-parcel, did nobody explain the basic rules of English football? The news that Portsmouth have applied for extraordinary circumstances to the Premier League in order to sell their...

    Backlash against the Bankers

    I know we may have one or two on here, but just wondered what, if any campaigns people have signed up to... Firstly we have Billy Bragg's NoBonus4RBS - "If you pay tax in the UK, you are a major shareholder in several banks - Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds and Northern Rock - who were...

    Wenger Really Isn't A Paedo

    Sir Alex Ferguson has not exactly covered himself in glory in front of the press this season, but his spirited defence of Arsene Wenger's honour is to be applauded. The Manchester United boss has called on his own supporters to refrain from their sickening chants about Arsene Wenger when they...

    Button to McLaren?

    The team that bring him a World Championship after years in the wilderness are suddenly not good enough as they are only paying 4 mill per season. He must be a millionaire many times over but he seems to have forgotten this time last year, without Ross Brawns intervention he would probably have...
  17. What Becomes of the Broke and Shafted

    Someone great once said that Football isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more than that. Which would explain the pain felt by those when their football club is ripped away from them. As a Southend United supporter, I've had the good grace of never witnessing non-league football and...

    Webb Rescues Brazil

    Brazil 4-3 Egypt Kaka 5, 90 Zidan 8, 58 Fabiano 12 Shawkey 57 Juan 37 Now this is much more like it. After an insipid first day offered up only an uncomfortable mismatch and a desperately dull bore-draw, day two of the Confederations Cup finally delivered some excitement. Brazil were stifled...

    Prove You're Not A Cheat

    As Cristiano Ronaldo lay on the frozen turf at St James Park watching a chorus line of tiny birds circling his head, I wonder if he had time to ponder the irony of his situation. After years spent convincing referees that he had been fouled when he hadn't, he now finds himself being cynically...

    Chelsea Need To Look In The Mirror

    Mike Riley may have cost them the game, but it is Chelsea's under-performing superstars who have cost themselves the title. Even before the ludicrous dismissal of Frank Lampard, the Blues had barely threatened Liverpool's goal and some of their players need to ask themselves some serious...
