    Are we being primed for a relaxation in drug laws?

    Am I alone in detecting a subtle change in the media narrative regarding drugs? Instead of stories of how about drug use can damage people's lives we've instead recently had stories about the impurity of cocaine and about Mexico being at threat from turning into 1990s Colombia. Neither story...

    Question Anyone believe in fate?

    The last time we played at Valley Parade, we also won 2-0 (A rainswept night in August I remember very fondly)..... who did we play before that?.... a 1-2 home defeat to Port Vale! OK, so I was lucky enough to miss the debacle against Vale last weekend due to being the other side of the poind...

  9. Aussies vs Ghana

    Aussies went 1-0 up. Ghana have a penalty and there are 5 players surrounding the ref telling him to look at the big screen ..... even though it shows how obvious the penalty is. Gyan scores 1-1 and Kewell got sent off too. 2nd red for them in 2 games.

    Manny Pacquiao sent out a warning shot to Floyd Mayweather Junior by drubbing Joshua Clottey, taking the African apart in twelve long, gruelling rounds. The only reason this fight was scheduled was because of the row over drug testing between Pacquiao and Mayweather, with Mayweather facing...
  13. Rules Are Rules. Unless You're Portsmouth.

    When Portsmouth’s 4th owner of the season presumably won the club in a game of pass-the-financially-defunct-parcel, did nobody explain the basic rules of English football? The news that Portsmouth have applied for extraordinary circumstances to the Premier League in order to sell their...

    Big thanks to the Col U lads

    Amongst all of the negativity surrounding our particularly rancid performance (bar the last 20 mins or so), I would personally like to express my gratitude to both Pat Baldwin and Scott Vernon for their contributions today. Much has been made of Baldwin's supposed non-plussed appearance during...
  15. Some Possible Good News Soon?

    The last few months have been a very depressing time to be a Blues fan with all the financial uncertainty hanging over the club with the threats of possible liquidation/administration. Things are clearly still far from perfect. However, it's possible that things may be about to change. I hear...
  16. Pay Up Pompey, Pompey Pay up

    It never rains, it pours... Except in Portsmouth, where the football club seems to permanently be in the grips of a category 5 hurricane. The south coast club are gripped in a relegation battle they seem destined to lose and the mystery surrounding their owner seems to deepen by the day. The...

    Nick Griffin @ Copenhagen Climate Summit

    He is attending to expose the "somewhat dodgy" evidence surrounding climate change and that it is simply a "global Marxist mantra" designed to "impose a one world government." The BNP's website currently describes the Copenhagen Summit as an "anti-white guilt hatefest which will see billions...
