  1. Simon Cox

    I rate him I really do. He's as classy a player as you're gonna get at this level. However, Simon, please stop being so bloody unselfish!! You're a striker struggling for goals.... just have a dig!! I lost count of the number of times he looks to pass rather than shoot. He's been like that all...

    What was the point in bringing Williams back from his loan?

    He was doing great at Chelmsford, in a rich vein of form and scoring. We needed a striker and Brown said he'd get time. In the four games he had about 5 minutes. Should have got him on after Coulthirst decided to be selfish and try and run the whole length.
  3. Beverly Hills Cop Blue

    Delighted to have joined up with the Shrimperzone part of the Blues Country. As you can see I'm well under way with my mission and as you can tell I rabbit a lot but hopefully you'll also work out that I'm honest and fair minded. Hopefully I won't be thought of as being too selfish with my...

    Michael Clarke

    Convict Captain Clarke declares half way through day 3 on 329*. Very unselfish I'd say he was 5 away from equalling Mark Taylor's 334 as the highest score by a convict skipper and 5 away from Bradman. Beyond that and with the time available he could have gone on to beat Lara's 400* and still had...

    £42k a year benefits!

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/7585500/Family-on-42000-a-year-benefits-because-they-are-better-off-unemployed.html Sums up the shoddy state of this country. But who can blame people for being so selfish and greedy when our MPs are just the same.

    Question Worst type of Londoners.

    Done this thread before but might be interesting to see if things have changed - Not that I can remember the results from last time that said. Which type of Londoners do you dislike the most. Before one of the lefties bore me to tears with another "there is good and bad in everyone" I know I...

    Hats off to Ricky Duncan. Assuming the story about Ngoo going to Liverpool are true thats the third youth player we have sold to upper leagues opposition ths past calander year with Orunga (?) going to Everton and Medi going to Derby. If the fees are to be believed he must have brought in close...

    England Not That Good

    Never let it be said that England's footballers are selfish divas, unwilling to lift a finger to help others. In Amsterdam, in front of 50,000 witnesses, these much-maligned millionaires generously donated two goals to their Dutch opponents, an act of charity that they'd prefer went entirely...

    I'd Have Booed Beckham

    I've been a little bit sniffy about football in America in the past. With their 'marquee' players and unbridled enthusiasm for the spectacular, there's always been a doubt in my mind as to whether they really 'get' what football is all about. That is until now. I'm sure I can't be the only...

    Crazy Rooney Needed Telling

    Thank goodness that someone has finally said it. Fabio Capello's denunciation of Wayne Rooney as, "a crazy man," might be the best thing that has ever happened to him. A humiliating public dressing down for the lack of discipline that still prevents him from being a truly 'world class' player...

    Does The Big C Make You A Big C?

    I'm just in from my daily walk. Despite the cold my face is burning up. Although the wander was a modest one, to Southchurch Park, the seafront and then back home, my body aches all over and I'm far too tired for a bloke of my age to be. You see, people, I have cancer - and I'm fare more...
  15. Whingers in the stands

    I had the misfortune of being sat in front of some of the most irritating West Stand whingers I have ever met at StadiumMK on Sunday. From the start they were negative, slagging off players (don't give it to him, he'll only **** it up; he'll give it away; he'll lose it; he can't pass). If you...

    Bigger airport means more noise for Leigh??

    Progress and development is such a bad word these days. I guess there are 2 sides to every story but from a selfish point of view, if the airport expands and possibly takes in a scheduled flight to one of the 3 Major Scottish Airports then I will be more then happy. Shut up tree huggers i...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Walsall 5 Southend United 2

    Just got in, shocked at what I have seen today. A total shambles, here's my view anyway: Mildenhall- 4: Hopefully will see Joycey in for Borient on Tues. Francis- 5: Terrible today, couldn't pass and was at fault for their first with a pathetic clearance. Usually good though so hopefully an off...
