    Glad to be back at work.... Or not.

    As a very laid back kind of chap, it does take quite a lot to rile me, but today has been one of those days… :punch: After five long months of signing on, I landed myself a job as a Rent Officer for a Housing Association, not ideal, but better than scabbing pints from my friends :) I attended...
  3. Stadium Costs and Debt (General)

    Article on Tottenham (& Liverpool) saying construction costs have fallen as much as 30% but ability to raise debt is practically zero. If Spurs & Liverpool are struggling then I just can't see how Ron is going to do it. Tottenham Says Credit Crunch Will Cut Stadium Cost (Update1) 2009-03-20...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ricky Otto

    Next up for election to the Hall of Fame is Ricky Otto. Ricky Otto had it all: skill, flair and funny looking hair. He was signed by B****y F*y for £100,000, a fee that seems suspiciously high for a Leyton Orient reserve. I won't make any libellous suggestions about brown envelopes...

    Solving this recession/economic slowdown malarky

    Now, I reckon I'd make a great Prime Minister, I'd model myself on Hugh Grant in Love Actually, mainly cos I'd belt Martine McCutchen, but anyway. So, solving this gloomy problem. Build prisons. 5 or 6 massive ones. Would take loads of people to build the things, then would create a load of...

  8. Ref Watch .. Leeds Away

    As we strive, I suspect in vain, for our first double of the season at Leeds, the man in charge will be Dave Foster, a 42 year old police officer from Newcastle. He started this season late, not passing the fitness test 'til mid October after injury. He is in his third season as a Football...

    Funny email

    Yes, it's that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least evolved among us. Here is the glorious winner: 1.

    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...

    I'm a PC advert

    I like this ad for two reasons: 1. The dig at macs - mac users always think they have a superior machine, but that one button mouse is gay. 2. Bill Gates tries to look like a harmless nerd - but I'm sure he's intent on world domination and I'm looking forward to that day. I see myself as an...

    Had my phone stolen today in college today, whilst in an exam. Basically the college say- put you phone in the exam box for the exam, we will look after it. I go to the box after the whole of year 11 (im in year 12, and year 11 is pretty dodgey!). I go there and still with 50 odd year 12's left...
