    Who is in line for Representative honours?

    With England playing Scotland tonight and for some of us memories of the Home International Championship, it's perhaps time to give a thought to the Prediction League's "Roots Hall Home" Championship. After this Saturday's fixtures it will be selection time with the top three scorers from each...

    RIP Donna Hartley

    Donna Hartley, The Golden Girl 400m runner from the late 70's early 80's has passed away. I personally had a teenage crush on her and it's a shame to see one go so young. A great shame.

    Doctors Secretaries mistypes

    Some of these are absolutely classic - restores your faith in the NHS! These are sentences typed (wrongly) by medical secretaries!!!! 1. The patient has no previous history of suicides. 2. Patient has left white blood cells at another hospital. 3. Patient's medical history has been remarkably...

    Your worst stalker ever.....

    Watched some programme about some stalker who shot his ex-bird of three weeks in Harvey Nicks last night and it got me thniking about my own worst stalker. When I was 18 I worked for a company called Unijet who were tour operators who have seen been brought out by First Choice. Like most first...

    Keegan Factor

    I’m writing this match preview moments after watching Kevin Keegan’s first press conference as Newcastle United manager since 1997. When he walked into the room, I’ll be honest with you, I felt a little bit tired and maybe a bit stressed about the deadline that was closing in on me. But after...

    Missing person: appeal

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place, but if the mods could pin it, I'd appreciate it. John "Cricko" is an elderly Southend fan known to many on this board. He's been a Southend fan for many years, having first watched Southend in his teenage years in Southend's first ever season (1906-07)...

    Films that you really looked forward too but were total let downs.

    Yesterday after a spot of lunch with my mate "The Pilot" and our respective Mrs, Mrs DtS and I decided that we would get a DVD to rid ourselves of the bordem that is Sunday afternoon TV. I have been desperate to see Zodiac - A film a bout the San Francisco area Zodiac Killer dating back to the...

    Favourite Sport

    OK - quite simple this one, really. Which sport do you most enjoy to watch - whether live or televised. For many of you this will be football, understandably - but if it's a close second or joint favourite please say. For me, it's Boxing - I've been a boxing fan longer than a football fan...
  14. Racism & Stewarding

    My teenage son was at the Blues v Sheffied Wednesday match today and heard racist chanting in the form of "monkey noises" coming from the visiting fans in the NW corner, these remarks were directed at JCR. When he reported it to a steward he was told that it was not in his area so it...

    Racing Post

    Bournemouth v Southend, by Mark Langdon THE talk coming out of Roots Hall suggests Southend will be taking the Carling Cup fairly seriously, and if that is the case Bet365 are taking a chance by offering a standout 11-8 about them beating Bournemouth. Southend have not been fazed by their...
  16. Desert Shrimper


    I was watching The Best of "Most Haunted" (I have a thing for the ex-Blue Peter bird and I love it when Derek gets possessed) just the other night. It took me back to when I was about 5 or 6 and I saw a ghost in our old house walking in and out of the bathroom on the landing in the...
  17. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
  18. The Emperor's new clothes

    Slight twist on DtS's excellent thread, as suggested by Firestorm. His nominations were Shane Westley and John Keeley. My nominations would be: Flahavan - I see a midget shotstopper who is dodgy at crosses; everyone else sees the best keeper in the division. (although at the moment...
  19. Sorry MtS!

    From todays Current Bun... BRIGHTON have nominated Bury’s teenage striker Colin Kasim-Richards as the player on whom they will spend most of their £250,000 Coca-Cola windfall award from fan Aaron Berry.
