    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    Truly great albums

    I've come to a realisation that on every great album there is one duff song. On Hotter than July by Stevie Wonder, a superb album, it's spoiled by Happy Birthday On Hotel California by the Eagles, it's Pretty Maids all in a Row, sung by Joe Walsh. Can anyone come up with a truly great album...

    Pre-Match Thread Barnet v Southend (JPT Round 2)

    Who's going to this mouthwatering tie then? I'm currently working out a route by road which avoids the M25 and other equally **** roads at rush hour. I'm thinking A127, A128, A414, B158, A1000. Any better suggestions chaps? Back to the game... Will Luggy make changes and give some of the...

    Luiz Felipe Scolari

    If Luiz Felipe Scolari has learned anything in his first month in English football, it's that Sir Alex Ferguson doesn't waste any time in welcoming new rivals to the Premier League.
