    Easter Monday and nothing much to do?

    We are blessed with no home game today, so what are you doing instead? Probably the high winds will prevent too much stuff outside this morning, so has your loved one got a list of stuff that needs doing? Wind surfing or para gliding might fit the weather.

    Dennis McShane: "Being a Guardian reading liberal leftie made me ignore child abuse" The title of the thread is a quote from the former Rotherham Labour MP Dennis McShane in a BBC interview - what are peoples' views on this?

    Amber alerts and 80 mph winds apart, is anyone aware how the pitch is holding up? (he asks having already purchased both match and train tickets)....

    The Flag Corner

    This week, we can expect a colourful array of dark blue and red at our hosts venue. Note how the dark blue dominates the red in a 3 quarter design. I'm sure our corner takers on the day will not be disappointed with such a feast of designer genius facing them as they are called upon to create...

    So it's not 'Climate Change' to be blamed for our cold winters....

    Seeing as we're talking about weather and atmospheric occurrences at the moment, I then spotted this on the BBC website..... The UK and continental Europe could be gripped by more frequent cold winters in the future as a result of low solar activity, say researchers. They identified a link...

    The most annoying traits of fans at RH

    :madman: Following on from my rant about the miserable :censored: who I had to sit next to in block O of the South Lower for the last season, I just wondered what trait really winds up the posters about those who sit near them. I'll open it up with: Those who always get up to leave early to...

    The innocence of children!

    Real school projects on the "sea" Number 13 is my favorite! R1) This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly age 6) 2) Oysters' balls are called pearls. (James age 6) 3) If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island. If you don't have sea all round...
  14. Ill Wind - Tactics agnst Swansea

    Stengthening Northerly Wind to-day with wintry showers to-night and same for Sat and Sunday, with gale force winds throughout. Spring has dissappeared and were back to winter !

    Players from the past you've still got issues with

    YB's post in another thread about John Hendrie being a "diving tart" got me thinking. Who from 10 years ago or over, still winds you up everytime you hear their name? I think people like Fry & Brady don't count in this as context as neither do players who played for Southend at the time! 3...

    Top Gear Presenters

    WHo is your favourite? I mean in terms of humour/Good presenting, although if your female or bat for the other side, i suppose you can base this on looks. Mine is May. His pompousness and ott obsession with checks etc causes me much humour, especially the way it winds up Clarkson.

    Best national anthem

    A post by ORM has spurred me for a vote. When I was a kid, there was an arcade game, that played your national anthem, depending on which country you represented. I always loved Japan for some reason. Now some anthems are absolutely bonkers. But what's your favourite? Let's look at some...
