    2015 election TV debates

    Conservatives - all three shows. Fair enough, Cameron is the PM Labour - all three shows. Fair enough, Miliband is the Leader of the Opposition Liberal Democrats - two shows. Fair enough, Clegg is the leader of the third largest party in the Commons. UKIP - one show. Well, they do have an MP...

    Largest SUFC attendance?

    Not sure if this has already been covered, but will Wembley see the most SUFC fans at a game? How many Liverpool fans were there in the 31033 in '79? If this has already been covered, let me know and feel free to delete my inane witterings after pointing me in the right direction!

    Strange times

    They say that the one thing financial markets don't like is uncertainty.....................we can only pray that this truism doesn't apply to football clubs. It looked so different at the start of the Summer, even allowing for the disappointment of missing out in the play-offs. The backbone...

    Is this another project that ron is involved in????

    Away last weekend, just south of Pau. Went over the border through the Somport Tunnel to see this incredible structure of an International station at Canfranc Estacion. It was lauded as a great trans-Pyrénéean project to link Pau in France and Saragossa in Spain and took 24 years to build. There...

  18. The next 8 weeks are vital.

    I'm sure that Ron Martin has a calendar on his office wall and is crossing off the days to Friday 23rd.April. "Just 8 weeks to go",he sighs,"Can we hang on?"
