  6. Can a women's national football team beat a top highschool boys team?

    I know for a fact it's possible. Back when the 1999 USWNT was in residency camp at Bradenton (this would have been 1998 or early 1999), they would regularly scrimmage the US Boys U-17 team (b/c they were both in camp and you get tired of always playing against your teammates). Now keep in...

    A little less deep depression, a little more perspective please

    I've been away on my annual hols and can't believe some of the stuff on here. So I thought I'd do a little research as to how we have done whenever we have been promoted to this league. 1971-72 - Promoted to Div 3 for 1st time. 1972-73 - First 6 league results - H v Wrexham, Lost 1-0, A v...

    London Marathon

    Good running wishes to El Tango, Mr Phil Brown for his 26.2 mile debut around London. I am sure he will start at the VIP start and be interviewed on his way around.

    Waste of pace

    I popped along to Braintree v Lincoln last night in the Conference ( crazy to think they are only 1 league below us ) It was a really entertaining match , both team playing excellent football + was a breath of fresh air after Saturdays painfully frustrating game at Roots Hall. The biggest...

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/311213-barry-corr-portsmouth-1266398.aspx My New Years message to Barry Corr is get around the six yard box more. That's where most of his goals have come from. He is taking one for the team at the moment by helping out in midfield and defence...

    Biggest achievements by former and current players

    Following thread about players who have already played at Wembley - I guess this is pinnacle for most players. So which of our former and current players achieved the most in their career? (Not including managers because Moore would top the lot) I think we need a points system to find out who...

    PL Weekly Points Points for Round 6
