  1. Proposed Football Rule Changes

    When I first saw this on social media yesterday, I thought it was another piece of "Fake News", but perhaps it's not. The main stream media (newspapers and Sky Sports News etc) seem to be following the story. Have Fifa & Marco Van Basten completely lost the plot? or do you welcome these...
  2. Will Lack of CEO Affect the Club ?

    Steve Kavanagh went into the Lions Den last year leaving us with no CEO which means, I believe, Ronald must be running the show again. We were told that Steve ran the football side of the club whilst Ron spent all his time organising the proposed move to FF. Does that mean that the football...
  3. Whole Game Solution torpedoed by FA

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/37998768 Would appear that the FA have totally trashed any chance of the EFL's proposed Whole Game Solution happening any time soon. Apparently the FA have done a new international FA Cup TV rights deal worth £820million part of which means they will not be...

    o2 - Total bunch of gits

    If your webmail account is with o2 i.e. @o2.co.uk be aware that they are totally shutting down this email service. The proposed date is 7th June 2016 and you should receive an email telling you very soon. If you are fortunate enough to have another mail account, gmail etc, then you will need to...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...
  6. Page 8 of the Echo - Garons development

    Has anyone read page 8 of todays Echo? An interesting read which I'll try and find a link but the basics are as follows: The council are looking to turn Garons into a sporting village which (caught my eye) will include: Two football pitches to Ryman League standard. One football pitch with...

    Changes? YOU DECIDE

    While I am away (for No. 10, 11 and 12 Fixtures) a couple of proposed changes for the next session, it’s your Prediction League so I will abide by the majority decision. It makes no difference to me and very little extra work so let me have your views: A Division Three? We have now increased to...

  10. UKIP up to shenanigans...

    So a guy took this poster, and he decides to research all of the claims and polices with evidence: Normal response would be for a political party to say thanks to someone for making their proposed policies clear and public. However UKIPs reaction (either formally or via a supporter) is to...

    Safe standing

    Looks like it's back on the agenda: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/26079503 Good news I say. However, the Hillsborough Family Support Group remain implacably opposed, which does make the debate a little delicate as even though the proposed rail seating is a far cry from the terraces of...
  12. Question So does anyone know how the embargo limit works?

    As the title says. I'm now totally confused. Earlier in the week we have reports in the Echo saying that we've been categorically told we can't sign anymore players/loanees due to us being up against the embargo limit. A day or so later we're told that the proposed loan signing of Kiernan has...

    More Hansard fun

    In a debate from 1989 on the proposed membership scheme to tackle hooliganism, they talk about men dressing as women to get round the issue. Then they talk about old age pensioners committing crimes at football. Only one that season: Mr. Meale In the searches done about this season, the only...
  14. France - The Road Not Taken

    Hollande promised an end to austerity when he was elected. Since then he has proposed fiscal tightening of 2% of GDP, the majority of which was through tax rises, particularly those aimed at high earners. The result is a collapsing money supply, EUR 53bn leaving the country in the last two...

    Thundersley War Memorial Proposal

    Guys, following on so soon after Rememberance Day, can I share the idea of a proposed War Memorial for Thundersley with you and ask for your support in emailing the Council who, apparently, don't see the 215 members of the Facebook Group behind this as enough reason to pursue the idea? Linky...

    Tube Strikes

    Not on the politics sub-forum as I don't see this as political but common sense. I note that the RMT intend to strike 2 x 3 days over two weeks in order to save the jobs of, er, TWO of their members. Here's a shock, they just happen to be senior union activists. I don't wish to be...

    Leyton Orient threaten legal action

    Leyton Orient have threatened to sue the Premier League for tens of millions of pounds in damages if they do not reconsider their decision to allow West Ham to move to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford. Orient believe that if West Ham move to the stadium, which is within a mile of their Brisbane...
  20. Premiership to Launch Next English Domination Scheme?

    Whilst SZ was down, this nugget came out in the Evening Standard during an interview with Palace Co-Chairman Steve Parish: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/markets/article-23903557-all-hands-to-the-parish-pump-as-palace-starts-to-rally.do Basically, the gist of it is that the Premier League want...
