  1. Another Surrey Shrimper

    Conservative National Heath Service

    What special powers do you posses.

    I have an uncanny knack of almost always selecting the correct sized Allen Key or socket by sight when performing various maintenance tasks. Can anyone beat that?

    Masterchef 2011

    Now, I was a bit skeptical when they changed the format of it this year to be very similar to the Aussie version (which is pants, IMO), but I have to say, as the final hurdle comes close, that i've really enjoyed it. Maybe the best one with Torode and Wallace on it. So, who do you think is...
  4. Jorge Mendes: Super-Agent

    Without wanting to "do a BarnaBlue", David Conn's piece on Jorge Mendes in today's Grauniad is brilliant. http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/david-conn-inside-sport-blog/2011/jan/18/jorge-mendes-super-agent In a nutshell, papers obtained by Portuguese courts have uncovered the extortionate fees...

    United Blow Their Chance

    Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United Eto'o 10 Messi 70 He may have mellowed with age, enough at least to allow the dignitaries to slip a runners-up medal over his head while still smiling warmly, but Sir Alex Ferguson must be furious with the way that this Champions League final was allowed to...

    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...
