  2. Floval Flyer


    All this talk of PB out, and yes I agree - time to go... But, who would legitimately take over the reigns? Knowing how Ron likes a 'name' I wouldn't be surprised if any of the following are on speed dial at the moment: Mark Warburton Paul Lambert Billy Davies Simon Grayson All of the above...

    Over the years I have seen threads suggesting we find a songto be played before home games and adopted as our very own love song ; ) So if perhaps the most played song on UK radio stations over the last 50 years was written, played and sung by a Southend man in a band originally from...
  5. Donny summary ;

    The complete performance’ is how Darren Ferguson described this win, and it’s hard to disagree.Rovers were the better side in the first half; more fluid and open than their hosts, and went in at the break with a deserved lead. Nathan Tyson’s deftly weighted pass, slotted into the roof of the net...

    Fifa 2

    So Fifa award tv rights for the 2026 world cup to Fox without putting it out to tender. Would this be a deal so Fox stop complaining about the Qatar winter world cup. Africa also agree to pit back their tournament until June which is the start of their monsoon soon. Should be worth watching.

    Congratulations to Marc Marquez

    On becoming the youngest ever rider to win the MotoGP championship and in his rookie season too. An amazing achievement and we could have a new Valentino Rossi contender for achievements on our hands.

    Contender for the new best club in the world? Absolutely smashing Barcelona at the moment. All German Final too, wonder what the odds were on that?
  11. Tender Lead

    A friend of mine is in construction. His Estimating dept came to him with an online tender lead, for the "Demolition of a football stadium, and the new build of a sainsburys, and 267 no. units." He then called me all excited like. But this is not even first stage tendering as yet, but all the...

    Kid is doing well. To date it has been another positive season for the Academy’s Under-18s, Kit Symons’ side catching the eye with their attacking philosophy and exciting brand of football. With no shortage of creative quality, Lyle Della Verde is one who has certainly attracted attention...

  20. Isle of Man coin legal tender?

    I have a 50p coin for the Isle of Man and was refused to pay for a bus ticket using it. I was told afterwards that he should have accepted it because they are legal tender in England. Are they legal tender or not?
