  1. From a Brighton rag ;

    Albion are weighing up whether to let Glen Rea stay at League One play-off candidates Southend United. The Republic of Ireland under-21 international's loan spell at Roots Hall ends on Saturday. Southend want to keep Rea, who can play at centre-half or in central midfield, for the rest of...

    Question John Brough

    From the match report in Cheltenham's local rag after we tonked them 4-0 at home in April: "Former Robins player, first-team coach and head of youth John Brough is now involved in the backroom staff at Southend and he would have given boss Paul Sturrock plenty of inside information." I never...
  6. The Sun "newspaper"

    In response to the response to the responsilble people who are stating various opinions about Britains best selling paper.... Is it a fun paper, mixing entertainment and humour with serious campaigning issues? Is it a smut rag for low IQ's? Worth buying just for the footy news? It's glamour...

    The new Karate Kid film.

    Has anyone seen this yet? This has to be one of the most unnecessary and poorly conceived remakes ever. How can you remake this without: Mr. Miyagi. Sensai John Kreese. Cobrai Kai. Joe 'Bean' Esposito. Also - Mr Miyagi would slap Jackie Chan rigid and throw him around like a rag doll.

    Honeymoon Rage

    It should be really simple. All I want to do is to find a honeymoon. I'm actually a very easy-going person. I am a very nice person. I don't want much. I want sun. I want luxury. I want all-inclusive. I don't give a **** where I go. Anywhere hot. I don't give a **** when I go. Any time after...

    The Dilemma

    Your other half shares a house with 5 other students. One is an attention seeking, high pitched loud mouth screaming little toe rag. After meeting her and thinking this on your first opinion and continually finding this how long do you wait before in her own back yard you tell her to put a...

    An artists impression...

    Just reading this on the local rag's website. How can you have "an artists impression" of a map??? http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/2009/10/27/weetabix-chops-anglesey-off-the-map-55578-25023076/

    Brighton brawl

    Apologies if this is somewhere else or a similar thread has already been deleted, but the local rag down here in Brighton has 'rival football fans clash in street brawl' at the top of the front page tonight. The story itself on page 5 states; Football fans from opposing clubs hurled bottles at...
  15. Question for Golfers...

    Having not picked up a club in anger for the best part of 3/4 years since being at Uni, I've been bitten by the bug again and am keen to get back into the swing of things... I picked up my old rag-tag set of clubs that were fine when I was a bit younger and 2ft smaller, and now I'm in the market...

    Mr Bechtel....I salute you Sir!!

    One thing about the Aussies is that their hearts and humour are always in the right place! T. B. Bechtel, a City Councillor from Newcastle, Australia, was asked on a local live radio talk show, just what he thought about the allegations of torture of suspected terrorists. His reply...

    Now, I quite like Shortlist magazine, the freebie you get on Thursdays from tube stations. Imagine my horror therefore when today I saw Steve Lamacq's most memorable Col U matches inside the back cover. He even says Southend aren't their main rivals (Ipswich?). I'm tempted to burn the rag...
  19. Is Sleeping with a friend acceptable?

    This past week has been our University "RAG Week"... Basically Raise And Give Week, where all the sports team organise events to raise money for charity, culminating in a Uni organised Bar Crawl and a big night out in one of the local clubs. I was out with a few of the lads from my house and...
