    2wentys Reuinion - Butlins, Skegness

    2wentys do it every year. They hire out Butlins and fill it with everyone that went away with them in the summer (although anyone can actually book up to go).

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...

    Could we really sign Lee Trundle?

    Simple poll, but I want to elaborate on this as the speculation is killing me - as I am sure it is many others!! If it is true, then this IS the transfer that Ron Martin spoke of - clubs would certainly take notice of us as Trundle has been touted at Everton and Southampton amongst others - as...

    Promotion from Div VI ?

    As I&#39;m resigned to at least two more seasons in my division I&#39;d like to ask those that have been promoted to Div V how many stars they averaged each week (as a defence trainer hatstats doesn&#39;t work as a comparison). I&#39;m averaging around 35 stars which is still only good enough...

    The family bonanza thing.

    As usual took my seat in the East Yellows but the only difference was instead of just taking myself along with my oldest boy, I took my 8 year old & they both took a friend.(yes, 4 bloody kids to look after!). Well, they may have only cost a quid each to take, but also spent another £30 in...
