    Memory Lane FM247: Radios In Motion

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrZyqo-kiZE&nohtml5=False This might resonate a little for anyone who's come back to Southend after a little while away. I was staying in town over the w/e and was at a bit of a loose end between an afternoon curry and seeing a gig at The Railway. I had a...

    Domenech's Dunces Doomed

    Uruguay 0-0 France FRANCE ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THE WORLD CUP Blessed with one of the finest squads in the tournament and capable of the most scintillating football, France are still a law unto themselves. Never mind winning the World Cup. On the evidence of this abject performance, they’ll...
  11. Who's Going Home In An FA Sponsored Aston?

    With just 90 minutes of football seperating the thirty prospective England internationals from South Africa, which seven unfortunate players will find themselves on stand-by? Michael Carrick: Unfortunately for the Manchester United midfielder, England have a relative embarrassment of riches in...
  12. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    Fourth? Pah!

    Has there ever been a tag-line as profoundly underwhelming as the ‘Battle For Fourth’? Even for the English, who celebrate mediocrity with such enthusiasm that Tim Lovejoy has been encouraged to forge a career in broadcasting, this is a new low. Fourth? It’s not even a place on the podium. It’s...
  14. Battle of the TV shows...V's...

    Anyone watching the current update of the classic 80's Sci-fi show V? Not sure what to make of it to be honest....very slow, unlikeable characters and not a sign of a lizard in sight. At the moment I definitely prefer 80's V with it's big hairstyles and Freddy Kruger, but I'll stick with it...

    So it's not 'Climate Change' to be blamed for our cold winters....

    Seeing as we're talking about weather and atmospheric occurrences at the moment, I then spotted this on the BBC website..... The UK and continental Europe could be gripped by more frequent cold winters in the future as a result of low solar activity, say researchers. They identified a link...
  16. What did you want to be when you grow up?

    And did you manage it? I think at the age of 10 or 11 I already fancied myself as a writer, having knocked a couple of books (ie, 10 bits of paper held together by staples) that stuck on a sci-fi theme that no one but my mum read, patted me on the head, and told me "they were very good". Of...

  18. The Scot Who Cried Wolf

    Sir Alex Ferguson, even more than he likes red wine, likes to moan about referee's. He does it so often now that many just ignore him, like the old relative at christmas who's hell bent on retelling his childhood. Well, Ferguson might actually have a point with his ranting this evening... It's...

    What is the best sci-fi show??

    I have to admit to being a little bit of a sci-fi freak , but truthfully there are some very good sci-fi shows and some dire shows. There are some big budget shows like star trek and then there are some that look like the were made with the funds from a wip round at the pub. I have been...
  20. When Genius Met Lunacy

    Socrates. Paolo di Canio. Eric Cantona. Emannuel Adebayor. All undeniably great players that have suffered from the madness that often comes with the territory of genius. A game that celebrated some fantastic, flowing football will undoubtedly be remembered for two incidents surrounding the...
