  1. iPhone Price War

    Noticed on the news yesterday that Orange are the first network to negotiate a contract with Apple to launch the iPhone on their network in the Uk from November onwards, and it'll lead to other networks being able to do the same. I'm on Orange, and was perilously close to terminating my...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    THE number of seats on the busy c2c line from Shoebury to Fenchurch Street will be cut from next month. The rail company will reduce the number of carriages on six trains to carry out a maintenance programme, which it must complete before its franchise runs out in 2011. Four of the trains...
  5. Rons Blog 07.04.09

    Firstly let me apologise for last week’s “void”. It was my intention to answer the questions raised over a period of two to three weeks and at the end of that period to review whether supporters generally thought it was a good idea to continue with a blog – be it weekly, fortnightly or not at...

    Legal to pee in Nottingham

    An absolute classic from bbc.co.uk - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/nottinghamshire/7798194.stm City hit by 'legal to pee' prank People should ignore signs telling them that it is legal to urinate in certain public places in Nottingham, the city council said. The signs, which were...
  7. Likely to be playing in front of our biggest crowd in over 50 years

    Chelsea usually get over 40,000 even for lesser teams as they reduce their prices for Cup games so the crowd will be over 40,000. We haven't played in front of a crowd that big for over 50 years. My guess would be the last time was the Everton game well over 50 years ago. If anyone knows...

    Letter To Ashley

    After trawling through Mike Ashley's emotional 1664 word press release, Slipperduke has a few questions for him.... "I paid £134 million out of my own pocket for the club. I then poured another £110 million into the club not to pay off the debt but just to reduce it. The club is still in...

  17. Last Night

    Right, i know i'm a Forest fan but everything i state here is devoid of bias and has come from stepping back and actually thinking about it without the red-tinted specs on. The red card was a clear red, even most of your lot didn't wave their arms about it (that was a rarity though). Chambers...
