    Best currently at the club?

    Best Header Interesting for me to see the two people I rate as the best headers of the ball at our club score with their heads this weekend. Turner's goal was a peach. Unmarked as he may have been, that was a great connection and a beautifully placed finish right past the keeper. Didn't need...
  2. Any advice for the players for the Burton home leg?

    I can think of quite a few. To start. Barry Corr looks like a giant next to Holness in the centre of their defence. So like Paul Sturrock said, get those crosses in. On free kicks and some crosses from wide, send in the inswinger, always produces more goals and even own goals. The outswinger is...
  3. Reality check

    The club is in debt -no news there. Some staff unpaid -no news there. under an embargo -yawn. no news there. Someone produces a spreadsheet showing the level of debt for RM associated businesses and all of a sudden the doom merchants have nigh on convinced me the sky is falling in. The reality...

    Big well done to Sturrock

    I think after the news today we should make Saturday the Paul Sturrock day. In my opinion (and i have always backed him) the guy deserves a massive amount of credit. For the third season on the trot he is having a bigger battle off the pitch than on it, but yet again he manages the team in a way...
  5. Tomlin the new JCR?

    I don't think its fair to judge a player to early but Tomlin is looking like the new Jamal Campbell Ryce, that fans favourite type of player who looks brilliant but ultimately produces little or nothing. Nine games into the season and apart from one penalty he has no goals and no assists...

    Plane Crazy!

    After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that...
  8. Labour Dont vote for these .....

    Aside from that horrible website, that im finding almost painful to read . A replication of the separation of 50% of humanity (again why ??) Repetitionof figures to the point of nonsensical rambling. Deliberate attacks on the other parties that Libs and Tories dont seem (unless their hidden...

    TV Highlights Borient v Southend

    Macca's goal!!! 51 mins for the highlights! http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00pjj9p/The_Football_League_Show_2009_2010_29_12_2009/ Btw, anyone got a programme from yesterday that they don't want for young Scott Barber that produces Terrace Talk for the Trust? He collects them but...
  10. First Class Footballer, Second Rate Sportsman

    Alone in the 18 yard box, dejected with a painful expression on his face. He's missed the penalty, yet the Santiago Bernabeu is rocking. Yes, Cristiano Ronaldo is back to his usual, petulant self and even the Madrid faithful are growing ever-so-slightly tired of it all. If ever a moment defined...

    The Ballad of Balloon Boy

    No matter how lethargic and fuzzy-headed you feel this Monday morning, no matter how unenthusiastic you were about the idea of leaving your bed, console yourself with the knowledge that at least one person out there is having it worse than you. Somewhere, presumably on Merseyside, one little boy...
  12. Lionel Messi - Vastly Overrated.

    I don't know about anybody else, but the biggest disappointment of this years Champions League has been Lionel Messi's complete anonymity in both games against Chelsea. I've watched Barcelona about 15 times this season, and Argentina a handful of times. I watched Messi cause havoc on Saturday...

    Breaking News Ron's Blog

    I feel that I should be letting you have my thoughts and feelings about the season now it is effectively at an end but I promised that I would answer all the questions that are put to me and I am continuing to do so. However I will need to bring this to an end soon as it was only meant to span...

    EPL Half-Term Reports Pt II

    Bolton - Not one of our most popular pupils, this one. Prone to fits of violence and if there's a ruckus in the playground, you'll invariably find him at the centre of it. That said, he has settled into his work better this term and is beginning to achieve some reasonable grades. A bit more...

    Question Who is Willie Fonja?

    Saw that he trialled last night for us. A google search of his name produces no results (it just suggests that I might have mistyped "Willie Wonka"!). Anyone know who he is and where he comes from?

    If The World Was A Village Of A 1000 People

    If we could reduce the world&#8217;s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this: The village would have 60 Asians, 14 Africans, 12 Europeans, 8 Latin Americans, 5 from the USA and Canada...

    So here we are, the final twist of the most amazing rollercoaster ride that has been the 2007 Rugby World Cup. England - your England, my England, everybody's England - have been knocked from pillar to post, criticised, attacked, pilloried, derided, laughed at written off from all quarters...
