    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...

    Any budding journalists out there?

    Hi John, Appreciate your help on this, Southend fans are proving one of the hardest to find so far. Cheers, Aidan I am looking for a Southend supporter who would be interested in representing the Shrimpers on an established football site by writing unique content on a regularly basis...

    Chipper's Guide To F1 Stars

    My lad, in his infinite wisdom, is commemorating his 14th birthday by writing an a-b-c guide to the 2010 Formula One racing season. Now, normally, with petrolheads, they look and sound particularly trainspotterish about the sport. He, though, isn't. This is some of what he's written so far on...

    Best Sequence of Number One Singles?

    I recently downloaded a great music collection containing every UK number one single from 1952-2007. Obviously, there's copious amounts of crap in there, but I was stunned to find some truly incredible sequences of classic singles that hit the top spot in succession. These were my two favourite...

    Wagner Love (of CSKA Moscow) is a footballer... but he sounds like he should be a musician. Anymore for anymore, eg Neil Lennon, George McCartney...

    Kicked To the Curb

    There's never a dull moment in the EPL. Just 24 hours after the farcical scenes at St James Park, Alan Curbishley nipped in ahead of Kevin Keegan to become the first manager of the season to leave his club, resigning after an unhappy spell at West Ham. The history books will hint at a short...

    (McCormack) Macca v Mucca

    In a late change to the settlement, Paul McCartney will also have to give his ex-wife a plane. The judge also announced he should buy her a razor so she can shave her other leg too. Apologies.... :zip:

    The Brits

    Surprised not to have seen any references to it anywhere or was everyone watching football elsewhere? FWIW, my opinion was that a certain lady tried to hijack the whole proceedings and turn it from a family affair into a one woman show and failed miserably. And what was with her face? She...
  12. Birthday No. 1's

    It's my 40th birthday in May, and Mrs BB has set me a task of finding out which songs were number 1 on each birthday, and my God there's been some rubbish. Can anyone match any of these corkers ? 1975 Tammy Wynette - "Stand by Your Man" 1980 Mash - "Theme From M*A*S*H (Suicide is Painless)"...

  14. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

    Paul McCartney

    Anybody heard Paul McCartney's new album 'Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard'? Ron Manager, do you have any thoughts? I heard about the album being produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead's producer) and that piqued my interest. I'm not a fan of Paul McCartney's stuff as...

    Some Jokes....

    The train was travelling along when a beautiful young woman entered the compartment which was deserted except for a businessman reading his paper. The man peered over his paper and asked "Would you let me shag you for a pound?" "Certainly not!" exclaimed the young woman...
