    Northern Rock

    Northern Rock has been sold by the government to Virgin for a 650 Million pound loss on what they paid for it. Another shot up the arse for taxpayers. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-15769886 "Perhaps they will call it Northern Virgin".

  3. Long running bands

    What with the break up of REM, does any get a bit tired of bands that just seem to go on forever? When young and hungry, these bands produce their greatest work and then either vanish up their own butts (hello Radiohead) or just live on their past glories and release crap (The Rolling Stones for...
  4. Harshest Musician on Musician insults

    Some of these made me properly LOL! 30. Wayne Coyne on Arcade Fire “I get really tired of their pompousness [sic]… We’ve played some shows with them and they really treat people like ****. People treat Arcade Fire like they’re the greatest thing ever and they get away with it… They have good...
  5. Ref Watch .... Orient League Cup

    Tonight's match official is due to be Fred Graham from Orsett. Fred got onto the League list in 2004/5 but was summarily removed after just one season, rather harshly in my opinion. However he stuck at it and fully deserved his reinstatement and has now been back for four full seasons. Has...
  6. (18+) The c-bomb in films/TV shows?

    So settling down to another HBO series (Game of Thrones) and it's clearly obvious that more and more US films and TV shows are dropping the c-bomb. We watched Bridesmaids (a 15) and it was dropped, and I commented that it seems to me to be more used and maybe more acceptable in the US, which is...

    England - Selection headaches and unrealistic expectations

    Just reading through the Switzerland thread and can't help but feel a little bit sorry for Capello. I'm one of those that think he has been wrong tactically and selection wise, and given how much we're paying him to succeed, he's quite lucky to still be in a job - however with team selection...
  10. Breaking News Sainsburys article found in Property Week

    Found this article this morning, might finally be getting some progress on FF. Sainsbury’s has long been a friend of League Two football club Southend United. The supermarket is hoping to take over its stadium at Roots Hall for redevelopment as a store. What could go wrong for the Shrimpers...
  11. Question Great British Anthems

    No not that god-awful dirge that Queen Liz uses as her ring tone.....Abbey Road are launching the search for "Anthems of our Time" so I thought this'll be a nice little thread for the web's favourite site. So shall we say from 1900-2011, anthemic choons, be it rock, pop, classical, jazz etc...

    Plymouth go into Admin

    Oh dear. Bad times. See you next season chaps. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/p/plymouth_argyle/9401625.stm A 10 point deduction, will put them rock bottom on 23 points. 10 points adrift of safety. League Two beckons unless a miracle happens. Championship to League Two...

    After Wolves (A)

    A much improved performance from the Blues after the abysmal showing against Port Vale, spearheaded by a Top Player performance on his competitive debut by Bilel Mohsni. The 6'3" defender was a rock at the back despite a slip leading to Wolves' penalty. His performance has also put him straight...
  15. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...

    Life In Tottenham

    Grown men bounce into each other like rubber balls on the street outside, screaming incoherently at each other in beery ecstasty. At the front door, a woman tries desperately to light a cigarette in shaking hands, eventually giving up and asking the bouncer to help, tears of joy in her eyes. All...

    We aint down yet?!

    Why are 99% of us talking like we are ****ing relegated already? We are 3 points off safety for crying out loud. Our run in is far more appealing than the likes of Orient, Oldham and Gills have. See for yourself if you don't believe me... Ok, our form this year has been awful and we are...
  19. Pellegrini In A State Of Pjanic

    When Manuel Pellegrini took the reins at Real Madrid, blank cheque book in hand, I doubt very much he expected his only shot at silverware at this stage of the season would lie solely in a sprint to the finish with Barcelona... Courtesy of Miralem Pjanic, that is exactly the situation. Lyon...
  20. Peter Clarke

    Am I the only one who on an almost weekly basis notices the same old frailties in Peter Clarke's game occuring time and time again. Take Saturday's game vs Leeds as an example. His ball watching/ lack of concentration again led to 2 headed goals in the six yard box. Both times it was his...
