    Lessons Learned?

    The season starts in less than a month. Have we learned nothing? Go back twelve months. No left back, Bailey and Clarke out of contract, Gower gone and little in the way of positive news regarding transfers. With the season approaching fast, and pretty much all of the pre-season games out of...

    Fergie Must Quit

    I have a dream. I have a dream of Rome, May 27. I see Rio Ferdinand lifting the Champions League trophy, I see Wayne Rooney throwing his shirt into the crowd, but most of all, I see Sir Alex Ferguson leaning into a camera crew and, above the roar of the crowd, giving them the scoop of their...

    Blimey. Didn't See That Coming

    Liverpool 1-3 Chelsea Torres, 6 Ivanovich, 39, 62 Drogba, 67 That wasn't in the script. Unbeaten all season at Anfield, Liverpool chose the worst possible moment to lose their focus, lose the match and, unless something truly extraordinary happens at Stamford Bridge next week...

    The Apprentice - week 1

    Whoever the 16th person was who "bottled it" before the tv stage, he enjoyed more air time than the majority of those on the men's team - Howard excepted. Tonight was all about the meltdown in the girls' team. Stepping up to the plate in week 1, Mona (surely the a and n are the wrong way round?)...

    Champs League Final

    This is more than a General Football subject which is why i posted in here. Arsenal fans get attacked. A Luxury coach is hijacked, a passenger stabbed. This is organised Italian crime and has again happened against English fans in Rome. Will Sepp Blatter act? Course not, same old same old...
  10. UK Independence

    VAT was more than doubled from 8 to 17.5% to fund our joining the EU. In these harsh financial times does anyone feel that we simply cannot afford the luxury of retaining EU membership. Does anyone know the total cost to the country and per person ? It is £1000 for every adult p.a. £80 per...

    The 'Stan

    First of all, I'm writing this from my perspective of the last six months, I'm no hero, but plenty of my collegues are. Hopefully no one will think I'm writing this is order to show off, or to earn rep. Indeed, please don't rep me for this at all. I realise I'm probably not the only serviceman...

    New Hotel and Office Devlopment in Rochford

  15. Cyclone in Burma

    I am baffled by the appeals for money for Burma. As I understand it, the country is a major exporter of pearls rubies and sapphires. It also has offshore gas and oil supplies. My question is- where has all this money gone. I know Burma has had a military junta since 1962 so is the answer that...
