  1. Bloody Norah...and other phrases

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-38007350 3/10 seeing as I hadn't heard of about 4 of them.
  2. Does anyone actually hate Phil ?????

    I certainly don't ! He comes across as very likeable and a decent guy,cannot understand why some on here use the phrase "Phil/Brown haters".....lazy reposte IMO to even utter that phrase. Dont like his football style that is certain,hate never! Does he deserve the sack,he has been lucky Ron...

    "Puts Football in Perspective"

    What does this phrase mean to you? It's something that is often said when a person linked to the game dies. All of us feel a sense of loss and maybe even shock if the person is young. But what does it really mean to you? Do you really think about its meaning? For example, if an event really...
  4. Tangled up in Blue


    So far in the group phrase 4 players with Espanyol connections (2 current and 2 ex-players) have turned out for their respective countries. Who are they? Clue:2 ex-players were in Argentina's team last night. (Thought Bosnia could have got a draw if they'd been a bit more ambitous).

    Memorable first days at work.

    Down on my luck in 1993 I ended up with a job at a sponge/J cloth factory. As I walked through the door to clock in on my first day one raconteur and bon vivant took a deep drag of his Benny Henny, exhaled and then turned to a colleague and remarked "are you still knobbing that bird from the...

    Made to measure shirts.

    I have a lot of trouble buying work shirts. To borrow a phrase from Quadrophenia most shirts with a 17.5" neck are ****ing rent-a-tents and I am reasonably slim in an extra-medium kind of fashion. I am considering getting some shirts made to measure and there a few online companies offering...

    FA Cup: East Thurrock United 4-4 Chelmsford City

    What can you say about a game that had an injury time equaliser, and then had an extra time injury time equaliser. On top, of course, an injury time equaliser on Saturday before last night's replay? Quite a bit, as it turned out. A privilege to be at one of the best games anyone could ever...

    Question "League One football at League two prices"

    Did I just imagine that someone at the club used this phrase or did it come from somewhere else ?

    French phrase!

    OK peeps - I need one crossword clue answered. It's this; "French phrase meaning a noble or gracious act" (5,4) *E*U G*S*E Cheers!
  12. Opinions

    A wee birdie told me that the gaffer has been studying types of players who have played for Southend and for h is own peace of mind he has watched videos and dvds of games of Southend teams of the past. Under the previous manager the style was no different direct to target man play in in...

    White Poppies

    Wonderful piece from the Telegraph on White Poppies: At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, I am sure the thoughts of all Telegraph readers will be with those British and Commonwealth Service men and women who fell in the defence of our liberty. But spare a thought, too, for the...

    Monkey Tennis / Ghost Hunting with The Only Way is Essex

    Seeing the second of the two programmes in the title of the thread advertised on ITV2, I was reminded of a scene from Alan Partridge which (I've just found out spurred the phrase in the first part of the thread title). "In one scene the eponymous character of Partridge, a failed chat show...

    Commentator Speak.

    I'm channel hopping between Stoke's ritual humiliation of Bolton and the Arsenal v Liverpool bore fest. One thing the games have in common are the cretinous co commentators in Ray Wilkins & Chris Waddle. Waddle is incomprehensible at best, and I'm not sure what Wilkins is on of late. The thing...

    PL Weekly Points Round 39

    "you'll win nothing with kids" was a phrase you may recall from the 90s when Fergies Fledgings swept all before them .. i have absolutely no idea of the relevance of that statement to our little comp but its kids all the way here as Luca and Daniel dominate this week ... 8 - Lucky Luca 7 -...
  17. What did these recent statements mean?

    Just wondering whether the recent developments shed any light on the phrase given a few months ago that relegation from league one would be "fatal" for SUFC? What did that statement actually mean? Did Ron expect that the club would cease to exist? What was meant by the comment that our...

    World Cup Memories

    Strange as it may seem, I've been reminiscing once again. I was thinking about the England World Cup squad of 1970 and their number one hit, 'Back Home.' There they were on TOTP, all suited in black and wearing white shirts and black ties. We didn't have a colour telly then, so that's how it...
  19. What is the real world

    Oft we have heard this phrase . But really what does it mean ? The day to day survival of a person , The exterminates of platos cave , the angst of Jean Paul Satire and is identification of meaning beyond symbols (including alphabet ) ? As Plato said is the unquestioned life worth living ?

    Worst Miss in History?

    You see plenty of shocking misses over time but surely none can be worse than this one? The 'easier to score' phrase can easilt be applied here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY93jfd7H0M&feature=related
