  1. Slightly concerned

    I do not wish to introduce any negativity to CP's reign but something is concerning me. It seems Chris does not fancy Elvis or Kyp. Wabo out on loan and what happened to Ba ? I thought when Chris arrived the youth would be encouraged and given chances. Seems only Dru is considered worthy. What...

    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...

    Russian 5 Year Olds Escape From Nursery

    I think these two were born about 75 years too late. They would have been heroes during the 2nd World War. Guardian

    Football clubs for 6 year olds - Southend area

    My lad and his friend are 6 and have shown interest in trying a football club/soccer school. My son has never played any football and will no doubt be rubbish at first, but Id like him to at least have ago. Anyone know of any decent soccer schools that are friendly to 6 year olds just starting...

  12. Getting a bad name

    I was listening to Chelmsford Radio this morning (same arm as Southend Radio so I presume same news bulletins) where they said a group of Southend fans are being sought by police following rowdy behaviour on the train from Liverpool Street ahead of the Wimbledon game. The radio said they were...

    "Moped Cars"

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/20451602 As of next year, this car will be legal for 16 year olds to drive on the road with a moped license. Personally I think its a stupid idea: 1) Who in their right mind would pay £9,999 (plus insurance!) for a years use of something which isn't even a car...

    Purchased this at the weekend and it arrived yesterday. Either my computer is getting worse or these games are taken up more and more capacity! Short of buying a new computer I have started a new game as England manager because I figured with less news and game time I would get on a lot...

    I've been tempted into this again...

    About the same time last year, I started a Battrick team and then forgot about it. Hope to not do the same thing again. Went through some old threads for advice on startup and this is the squad I'm with at the mo after some early strengthening with 17 year olds for training (only spent £1000 or...
