    Women's World Cup 2015

    Unless the England team sharpen up on ball control and passing I can't see them bringing home the silverware. France looked a classy team, good technique and slick passing. they will go a long way in this tournament based on that performance.
  2. Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Newport County

    Tuesday is only a few days and nights away. The BIG games keep on coming; it is all to play for for both teams with aspirations (and cliches) to the fore. We MUST have 3pts, they would settle for a point. With the "park the bus" situation looming Mr Brown must sharpen things up. Dan in GK...

    You dont sharpen a knife like that.....give it to me.

    Three hours later two fingers on my left hand are still bleeding although in my defence it was a fantastic roast and I had been on the red wine. Has anyone else made a spectacular tit of themselves recently? If so please provide full details.

    as it stands:

    correct me if i'm wrong , but we will have no Spillane & no Laird for the Orient games ... so this will probably be the team : ..........................................SMITH.................................... CLOHESSEY..........PHILLIPS.................CRESSWELL.......BARKER...

    Worst/Most Annoying TV Adverts.

    For me it's those ****ing Microsoft adverts, you know those ones where they set up a shop in some poor unsuspecting sod's home to shame them into buying a new computer. As if they're saying "******** here thinks her current pc is 'ok', WELL IT'S NOT, BUY A NEW ONE OR YOU WON'T BE UP TO DATE AND...
  7. Gary Neville

    Couldn't put it better myself Oliver Kay On Thursday 3rd February 2011, @OliverKayTimes said: A 1,000-word tweet dedicated to Gary Neville, the great overachiever ... There was, it is fair to say, a lively response last night when, in tribute to Gary Neville, I called him "one of world...

    Don't Make A Whipping Boy Of Green

    Even as I type these words, I can hear the scraping of a thousand knives being hastily sharpened in the offices of England’s national newspapers. By the time I’ve hit ‘send’ on my email, be assured that this country’s sports editors will have plunged them all into Rob Green’s back. Football can...

    I tunes / ipod question

    Now I have downloaded a nice audio book for myself to listen to in bed (since I dont have a bird to moan to at the moment) Sharpe's Tiger if you must know... anyway I have downloaded it via a reputable torrent site who shall remain nameless for legal reasons but they use a pirate theme ;) anyway...

    Andy Carroll

    Just reported on SSN that he is in trouble for an assault charge. More to follow when I can find an article. What is it with footballers today? Do they not learn that they are in the public eye and if they fart everyone know about it. Surely this is something their managers and agents should...
  11. Climb Kili 2010 : Childreach International

    In July 2010, my cousin will be travelling to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's largest free-standing mountain. He will be climbing the mountain to raise money for the charity Childreach International, which was set up to improve the health and well being of children in India...
  12. Strange things that you look forward to.

    Of course the most look forward to thing in the world is a new post by osy but what if any strange thing do you look forward to. Mine is very strange because its a non-sexual thing which for me is un-heard of,mine is my chainsaw chain breaking.I am in the fields at this time of year cutting next...

    PL Weekly Points Round 49

    Another pretty average week tbh ... though i think we've been spoilt by some excellent predictions lately, so when we have a below average week like this the scores seem poorer than they probably are Hats off to Drastic Sturgeon and Brettie Angell for sharing top billing anyway, with Ozzer...

    I Heart Tevez

    Carlos Tevez isn’t usually the kind of player to cause trouble for his manager, but he’s given Sir Alex Ferguson a real selection headache ahead of this weekend’s clash with Sunderland. Four goals against Blackburn in midweek have made him a very difficult player to drop. The fiery Argentine...

    Barry Fry

    Seems like we could be up against him in Pre Season, as its rumoured he's interested in the available job at The Daggers! I haven't heard anything about it myself, but their board is full of posts about him and it's supposed to have been mentioned on Sky Sports News.

    Help For Heroes

    Thought I would post this up as I feel it is in aid of a really good cause, even if it appears on the Col Ewe site. Colchester United announced that they will be holding the "Game of History" Celebrity v Army football match on Sunday November 2 The people behind the celebrity Soccer Six...

    Why loans are so crucial

    Reading a few messages in the past, it seems that svereal posters don't fully understand the loan system and how it is so crucial for a club like ours. In the dim and distant past, sending a player out on loan practically signalled the end for him at that particular club. The same can be said...
