    Tilly on BBC Essex this morning

    Surprised that nobody has mentioned this yet, but Tilly on BBC Essex this morning saying that the loan market hasn't been ideal this year, and that the top 6 is possibly too far to reach this season. A season of consolidation in league one. Reading between the lines this was Tilly saying that...

    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...

    If you like 2ManyDJs then you'll love this mash-up album. Here is the Rolling Stone review (they gave it 4 stars) "Big ups to the fair-use principle of United States copyright law: Pittsburgh DJ Gregg Gillis says that's what allows him to use hundreds of unlicensed samples in his music. On...
  8. The Clubs Future?

    After some unexpected news this week from the club, I've started to wonder what will happen with the club within the next few seasons. Will we challenge for promotion with yet another small squad? What type of players will we sign within the next few months young/experienced? Fortunately for...

  10. Films you've watched recently.

    Simple... state a film you've recently watch and give it a rating out of 10. maybe a little line or two. it might be a good way of recommending some films! The Lives of others - 9/10. really good film, worth all the hype and an excellent insight into post-war paranoid Germany. a stunning...

    Slipperduke's Slippery Column

    It pretty much wrote itself this week..... Slipperduke's Slippery Column #12 I've got a massive problem today. It's not just the fact that I've spent five hours in the freezing cold queuing for non-existent tickets to Southend's League Cup clash with Manchester United. Well, actually, it is...

    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...
  15. 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...
