    French presidential election 2017

    The job of writing a long article to explain the race to l'elysée up to now had prevented me from starting a thread. Happily, this article from the Independent does most of it for me. I would agree with the majority of what is written (apart from liking Le Pen to Clinton!)......thank God we...

    Maybe we sucked early.....

    Because of the tough draw we had at the start. In our first 12 games we played 7 of the top 9 sides that cureently occupy those positions. Four of those were away which we gained 1 point - v Bolton. In our first 18 overall that increased to 9 as we played Bradford twice, for four points. Now...

    BBC (lack of) FA Cup Coverage

    Has anyone else noticed that this weekend sees 4 days of FA cup games and the BBC are showing just one game. What's the point in having the rights if they aren't going to televise the games? No doubt the BBC will show games like Stoke vs Watford in the later rounds. Yaaaaawn.

    F.A. Cup 2016/2017

    If I'm not greatly mistaken it is the last of the qualifying rounds on Saturday. I presume (but do not know) that the draw will then be held on Sunday or Monday ........... and of course our name will be in the hat (well, it's a perspex sphere with a hole in the top but that doesn't quite sound...

    Sufc quiz night

    just home from a very enjoyable and excellently run quiz night. All in the aid of charity, around £2300 raised on the night. 16 teams entered, around 130 people. Pie and chips to start followed by 10 rounds of questions....I think! A very moving speech by a guy at the start (apologies I'm...
  8. 2016 Season

    Two weeks from the draft and the Rams have made a huge move trading the house for the #1 pick from the Titans. Titans get the Rams' first round, two second rounds and a third and their first and third next year. Titans swap #1 and a fourth and seventh rounder next year. Seems mental to me but...

  10. Another black kid executed by police !

    What goes through the mind of some American police is staggering,firing 16 times with 15 of those rounds hitting the poor bloke when he was already down. Cop charged with murder and rightly so,he deserves the beatings in prison just to see how tough he really is. Still cannot get my head round...

That is 46 League matches and six cup matches from the FA Cup, League Cup and JPT. However we have been let down by the Cup performances this year and only have a maximum of 49...

    BOXING: Weeknds Results

    Marcos Maidan Bt Broner by UD Boy was I happy to see this result come in. Big mouthed, self proclaimed heir to Mayweather's thrown sent crashing back down to earth by Maidana. Broner wasn't just beaten, he was crushed, rocked in the first and down in the second, and bar a couple of rounds in the...
  18. BOXING: Khan vs Mayweather

    From what I've heard (as I said on another thread) this fight is apparently signed, and they're due to announce it soon, so I thought i'd create this for the build-up to the fight next May. So how do people see this going? Anyone give Khan a chance at all? I'm saying Mayweather wins by...
