    The phil brown interview

    This was published on line yesterday in the form of a two part interview. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QhwRAIOMQw&feature=youtu.be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MPmQiRN7AI&feature=youtu.be It seems to me an important statement of faith from Phil Brown. I'm sure many have already...

    Eastbourne, the worst town ever.

    Eastbourne is the worst town in England. It may even be the worst town in the world. It's a real hellhole. A grotty, stinking crap-tropolis. If Eastbourne was a person, it would be a fat racist in a ****-stained tracksuit. If it was an animal it would be a really big, really persistent wasp that...
  6. Mildy's quiet way of doing things

    Mildy had a great game against Hartlepool. He couldn't do anything about the two freak goals. Some people say he had little else to do. Well that's because he played so well in taking the sting out of the action. How many times did he come for high crosses and there was little point in...

    Ancelotti Needs Time

    Roman Abramovich has made his decision. Now let's see if he'll stick with it.

Chelsea...

    Real school projects on the "sea" Number 13 is my favorite! R1) This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly age 6) 2) Oysters' balls are called pearls. (James age 6) 3) If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island. If you don't have sea all round...

    THE Matt Harrold thread

    I just want to start off by saying that in the past I have abused the bloke (only on this board mind) but my abuse usually came after a defeat and I was probably a bit emotional etc etc. I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their opinion even if driven by the sting of defeat...
