    'President Putin 'probably' approved Litvinenko murder'

    So says the Independent enquiry in Litvinenko's death of a few years back. Pretty strong stuff to explicitly name Putin as probably being involved. I doubt many will be surprised but the direct link in his death to the Russian President is unusual. No doubt our relations with Russia will see a...

    Random word links in posts

    Guys, I mentioned this within a thread but just in case none of you have seen it, I wondered what is going on with the fact that some random words are appearing as if they are linkys (I never have worked out how to do them) and when you hover over them, they link to "text enhance" adverts. Take...

    Lessons we can teach kids from former/current players

    I was thinking about how we can teach children about history, culture, philosophy, etc and how we can use real-life to illustrate. Then I thought how for example, we can point at Freddy, and use him as an example of Romany culture. Or we can use Phil Gridelet as an example of poor race...
  4. Question Famous relations

    So after RichieC's admission that he's related to Dick Clement, is there anyone in your family tree vaguely famous? I am, through marriage, somehow related to Lorraine Kelly or so I'm told. You 'orrible lot?

    Question Hot girls with bad laughs

    Saw an attractive girl in the street when I was on my way to the shops a minute ago. Nice figure and all that, but then she laughed...the kind of loud laugh you feel embarrassed to be around. Simple question, could you look past the laugh and date someone like this or would you politely refuse...
  6. Positive Customer Relations

    Amongst a number of other people I had my season card ticket taken away by the stewards after it ws not accepted for the game on Tuesday night. They still let me in, but other than saying that the club would be in contact they could not say what the problem was. So I popped into the booking...

    PL Fixtures Round 14 - Paint Trophy - Tuesday 5th October

    I'll get these fixtures up early, and as we don't get much chance to predict of our 6 fingered, web footed, sister shagging inbred friends from up the A12, nor for that matter their East London relations I've included them, in the hope they both crash to embarrassing defeats. Oh and how they did...

    The Blues or The Shrimpers?

    I know that this has been discussed before, but with the current positive vibes emenating from RH, is it time to consider moving back to "The Shrimpers" rather than the rather generic "The Blues"? I don't follow "The Blues", I follow "The Shrimpers". The club's nickname should relate to its...

    Would you say 3rd cousin is related to you in a way that it would be deemed incest because i found out that i have a 3rd cousin which turned out to be the person i'd like. FML. So, yeah, 3rd cousin related?

    Question Do we really want to know?

    This not being the first time that awaited signings have not come to fruition can I pose the question, do we really want to know about prospective signings before they are confirmed? The club would, presumably, defend their actions by saying that we were keeping supporters informed and that...

    Question Interactive Novel Writing

    Ok, bit of a weird one this. I have here the first 1,500 words of a story, battered out in an afternoon to no distinct end or conclusion. It's a first draft, it hasn't been polished or checked and, critically, it doesn't have a direction. I was thinking of a British version of Lost/Journey To...

    Zone Update So just who IS signing all the players?

    Everyone else is signing players, Tilson out, we're the League's poor relations, we don't have any players, it's two weeks before the season and we're the only club not strengthening, Ron Martin isn't doing it, etc, etc. Finally, a few facts to counter the myths and ******** we seem to get...

    this is classic

    We all know about famous modern managers refusing to speak to television stations because of perceived wrongs in their coverage - but what about Stockport boss Jim Gannon? He, reportedly, is not cooperating with Sky before the club's play-off League Two play-off final against Rochdale because of...
