    Pyramid schemes and high pressure direct sales.

    Anyone got any stories. I have just got back from a visit to someone's house under the guise of a social event hosted by the parents of my young nephew. I thought something was odd when I spotted some leaflets for cookware on the coffee table and sure enough a 'friend' arrived to cook some...
  3. Last Night's Interview on LBC Radio

    I don't know if anyone heard my report but Ian Payne the presenter was more interested in our financial state. I told him there are quite a few lower league clubs who could do with some of the cash thrown at Premier Clubs and football is about tradition --- it's not about egotistical chairmen...

    Chelsea 'b' team

    I was listening to Talk sport today and a rumour circulated that Chelsea wanted to buy a lower league team and use this team to play all their youger players. It turns out that they have quality young players in abundance that are not even getting a look in of the first team. The presenter...

Given the fact that there was no motd and no Championship matches you would have thought that this was an opportunity to show case leagues 1&2. And in to the bargain cheap tv for the bbc (cut backs and...

    World Athletics Championships

    WTF is this doing on Channel 4? Has the Beeb lost this because of cost cutting? The presenter is dreadful, I'm pining for Sue Barker and John Invedale already. I probably wouldn't have watched it but the women's marathon has already taken place and they've given about 2 minutes "highlights", the...

    Just head Ron getting a bit wound up on BBC Essex about a comment made by the presenter who said Tilly was given "Buttons" to attract players. Ron seemed to get really irate about that. He never said, yeah we never had a war chest or anything. He kept banging on about us having a high wage...

  16. More SUFC Content

    My weekly dosage of all things Southend Utd include SZ.com, the match if I can go to it and a few reads of the latest programme on the toilet. At the moment many of us will be tired of reading, watching and listening to the 'bad times' at the club, but for me I cant get enough of anything...

    Dwight Yorke - Born to Score

    BORN TO SCORE? What would you do if you were a professional footballer? How would you act? I know what you're going to say, you're going to say the same as me. You're going to say that you'd give it everything. You're going to say that you'd be tee-total, that you'd train hard, that you'd...
