  1. PB transfer Window explanation...

    Chris Phillips (@CJPhillips1982) 01/09/2016, 11:00 Brown: “I was keen to bring in a striker but I only wanted to bring in people who would have improved us, not those of lesser quality." Chris Phillips (@CJPhillips1982) 01/09/2016, 11:06 PB: “Fans are entitled to say what they want...
  2. Mooney...

    So, today as Mooney was coming on the pitch - there was a real hostile atmosphere aimed towards him. We wonder why players don't perform... I think this could be a blatantly obvious reason. Feel free to slag individual players off on SZ where they can't necessarily see it, but don't attack the...
  3. So who would have been 9 and 10 penalty takers? Where was Corr, but who cares....

    Can't believe Bolger took a penalty before Corr..would Bentley have stepped up before Corr....
  4. Bullard: Bully or Bantermeister?

    There has been talk on here of new loan signing JJ O’Toole potentially causing unrest in the changing room because of his ‘track record’. Given Jimmy Bullard’s ‘banter’ / verbal attack on a fellow celebrity in I’m A Celebrity… and his subsequently being voted off, when does banter go too far...

    The funniest thing you have ever seen.

    Christmas eve 1986. I was walking down an absolutely rammed Southend high street behind a couple. The man was arguing with the woman and waving his arms around wildly. He was so preoccupied he didn't notice a huge pile of vomit on the pavement... As he stepped into it he lost traction and...
  6. 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...
  7. Ron on the pitch Saturday

    Did anyone else notice this Saturday? Not sure if he actually spoke to the ref, but was obviously there to make a point.. I wonder what view the football league would take if he over stepped the mark?

    Breaking News Sneak Peak at Preparations for Sunday - PICS from Wembley

    Did the Wembley Stadium tour today (which is fantastic by the way if you get the chance!) but the timing today was perfect. Just as we stepped out into the seating area, they started the dress rehearsals... The pitch looks amazing and, even empty, the buzz inside Wembley is awe-inspiring...
  9. Have HMRC over stepped their powers ?

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/dec/06/hmrc-tax-deal-vodafone Was the deal done with vodafone illegal ? As also mentioned in the article a judge is already setting up an enquiry into the head of HMRC ? Could this be the tax version of the Leverson report ?

    A little caution for the over excited!

    I am as thrilled as anyone about our present unbeaten run but there does seem to be an attitude of “promotion certainty” amongst some for which I would advise a little caution to some of our more over enthusiastic fans. League success is down to successful sequences, and our present run of 12...

    Where do you think we would be today had the consortium took over from Ron?

    After seeing a thread I am still very much in the camp of not being Ron Martins biggest fan but where do you think we would be had he stepped down and let the Consortium take over? Would Tilly still be in charge? Would we be top of the league? Would we have ever got Sturrock? Would we have...
  12. Trio of Clubs interest in Trio?

    The Sunday express reported in a small caption yesterday that Nottingham Forest are hot on the trail of Kane Ferdinand and Bilel Mohsni. and a few lines in the Sunday People suggested Ipswich and Crystal Palace have stepped up their pursuit of Ryan Hall. As I said in a previous thread I wonder...

    Bellew v Cleverly. It's on.

    Tony bellew has finally got his dream fight against World Champion, after failing to make the weight when he stepped in to fight Cleverly in the summer. Bellew is already using Twitter to predict Cleverly's reign as world Champion will be short lived. Bellew is definitely the under dog, but...

    Have we turned the corner 1 year on?

    Cast your minds back to July 2010. The negatives: We had just been relegated to League Two. We had just lost Steve Tilson. We had been in court several times that season. Players were going unpaid regularly. Pretty much all the squad had gone and we were in danger of not fulfilling our...

  17. AGM minutes

    Uncle Albert, boots shining like a cyclists tail light,strode into the foyer of the Palace Hotel. As he did so a smartly dressed youngman hesitantly came forward to greet him. His job was to welcome all the Bluesshareholders as they arrived for the clubs AGM and he’d obviously beenforewarned not...

    Worst ever individual displays

    With far too much positivity on the board following the signing of Lee Sawyer, I thought it about time I lowered the mood with a depressing thread, so inspired by mention of Che Wilson's LDV final appearance I want the definitive XI of worst ever performances. They don't have to be bad players...

    If you were a Chilean miner...

    What is the first thing you would do after you stepped out of the FENIX 2? After putting in an overtime claim I would probably go for a full English.
