    Academy Schools

    Does anyone on here have some knowledge on Academy school's? I ask because in a certain Academies case I find the whole set-up a bit worrying. In question for me is The Basildon Academies. I have a daughter at the lower site since September 2011 and my dealings with it have led me to go as far...

    Anton Ferdinand loan move to Bursaspor

    How long before he encounters some racial comment with real threat and menace? Must say, I'm surprised he took a move to Turkey, they're not exactly renowned for their tolerance. Am sure it won't be too long before he'll take the context of what Terry allegedly said as actually not that...

    Drink & Driving - Absolute Zero Tolerance - Yes, No?

    No need for a poll as the choices are quite simple. Should there be an absolute zero tolerance on alcohol. Should the law be reduced to 5 milligrams per unit of blood down from the current 35? Now I don't drink (I'm allergic to alcohol + love driving) so I have a somewhat biased viewpoint but...

    This Morning - Schofe versus Cameron

    Anyone see it? Awfully bad tactic by schofe and willabooby presenting a list of "names" found on the Internet to Cameron referring to high profile names linked to paedophilia. I mean I've referred to a whole bunch of people who "look a bit dodgy" as paedos in jest with my mates down the pub...
  5. Ref Watch ....... Rotherham away

    The man in charge of tomorrow's rather daunting looking fixture is Graham Salisbury from Preston. One of the oldest and most experienced officials, the 49 year old is in his 11th season on the list. He has enjoyed a reputation as a steady journeyman official who was never going to make it to...

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Being patriotic doesn't make you a fascist

    An interesting read, especially considering some of our recent discussion and debates on here. I'm a firm believer in this idea, and thank you Mr Billy Bragg for writing about it in this morning's Telegraph. ----------- A poll published this week suggested that the English were the least...
  8. Labour Dont vote for these .....

    Aside from that horrible website, that im finding almost painful to read . A replication of the separation of 50% of humanity (again why ??) Repetitionof figures to the point of nonsensical rambling. Deliberate attacks on the other parties that Libs and Tories dont seem (unless their hidden...

  11. Zone Update Deleting posts

    This seems to be a common complaint at the moment, that the Owners/Mods delete posts...After discussions amongst the Owners and Mods about various issues including bans for the swear filter, where we draw the line with posts, or what WE feel are over the top comments, we have a ZERO tolerance...

    Scolari Knows The Price Of Failure

    Luiz Felipe Scolari is all too aware of the ramifications of failure at Chelsea. High expectations and high expenditure means a low tolerance for poor results. "Now we need to beat Cluj," he said after drawing with Bordeaux on Wednesday night. "But if I thought my players did not have the...

    Two interesting FA Pilot Schemes

    I have just attended a referee's meeting last night and two new pilot chemes are being tried out by the The FA in the Essex Senior Leagues: One. Being piloted from the 08/09 Season Onwards, if it works, in which only the Captain of the team can talk to the referee! Two. A complete...

    Summer in the Sun - A Vacancy

    Some of you will already know that one of my many projects out here in Spain is a TEFL teacher for a local company in Javea. During July we have a residential summer school teaching English to Spanish kids of all ages. (Granted, most of them return home speaking English with a very slight Thames...

    Getting a few emails from various mates about where to watch tomorrow tomorrow Champions League game. One of my mates has just come back with the following comment. "Watching it with my mate from work - He is a full on scouser". I have delved a little more into this comment and it turns out...

    The fbm views and ratings

    Due to formatting problems the report isn't yet on the front page so here it is BLUES LAND TITLE IN ESSEX ONE-TWO The two Essex sides defied all the odds in League One by claiming both automatic promotion spots – with the Super Shrimpers deservedly landing the title. In fact, it was...

    Drink of Champions?

    I'm bored so I thought what will everyone be drinking this weekend to celebrate the end of another successful season, hopefully with a bit of silverware in the trophy cabinet to boot.. I'll probably be dabbling in a bit of everything alcoholic this weekend, finances and alcohol...

    The crowd tonight

    I didn't mention in my review, but I for one have never witnessed all 3 sides standing up cheering, clapping and singing "Stand up - if you love Southend".  Well, if I have it was so long ago I've forgotten. We can get this team up.  I saw a few players look at the crowd as we were in full...
