    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report. Oldham Athletic 22/11/08

    Return Of The Kev! Saturday the 22nd of November brings Oldham Athletic to Roots Hall and the first and most noticeable point of their visit is the 2 match touchline ban that has been handed to the Latics manager John Sheridan for improper conduct. The unfortunate news for us Shrimpers is that...

    Why Americans Should Never Travel

    Taken from another site: I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take...
  5. Bowlers

    BT is a bowler's game. I am top of my III with 4 wins from 4, and all of my 5 bowlers are in the top 10 of the league averages. How many of us have a really balanced bowling attack? Despite my bowlers' success so far, I wouldn't say I do, as I have a quality as a 5th bowler (2 levels down at...

    Just wondered had anyone gone to see the above yet? Could you be bothered? Is it a fair portrayal of Bush, or is it just a film of sly digs at Bush, the Republicans and so forth? I wouldn't be his biggest fan, but having studied him, the war in Iraq and so forth for yonks now, am still...

    Live Chat Thread

    Just had a look through the last few pages (I know, shouldn't stick my nose in where it doesn't belong). There are a number of comments that I am sure wouldn't be made in front of the subjects (thankfully not involving me). A few should just remember that their pictures of their faces, and...

    Help! Thick female alert!

    Please can someone tell me how to negotiate the chat room both for this afternoon for the game and also more importantly, for any Quiz that might be happening tomorrow? Spent 10 minutes in the Spread last Sunday, and there must have been a bouncer or someone who wouldn't let me into the Quiz...

    Good Golly, It's Jolly From The Wally With The Brolly

    Home is where the points are. After two successive defeats on the road, Manchester City returned to form at The Eastlands, picking up a much needed 3-2 victory over FC Twente, but they were really made to work for it by Steve McClaren's new team. England, under the former Middlesbrough...

    The 'Stan

    First of all, I'm writing this from my perspective of the last six months, I'm no hero, but plenty of my collegues are. Hopefully no one will think I'm writing this is order to show off, or to earn rep. Indeed, please don't rep me for this at all. I realise I'm probably not the only serviceman...

    Computers....again

    Unfortunately another unashamed request for help! Was trying to help fix my sisters computer, shes tried updating Itunes to the new version. In the process of doing so, her computers crashed so the update has got half way through and stopped. Now her computer won't allow her to sync her ipod...

    Slighty techy stuff..

    Haven't seen this pointed out so far about the game yesterday so will try and keep it simple... Our problem yesterday in keeping that 2-0 scoreline intact came from possibly many areas that have been discussed thus far,a local derby,weather conditions,tough midweek game but it's time to turn to...

    Let battle commence...

    So we are a little over 14 hours away from the Essex derby. Ok, to most it's not the most glamorous of derbies, hell most footy fans wouldn't even look twice at this fixture and think "Big game" but you know what, I couldn't give a toss... To me, this is the biggest game in our football...

    Arsenal Lose, Four-All

    Arsene Wenger stared down his inquisitor, apparently caught between contempt and fury. A 4-4 draw at home to Tottenham, under any circumstances, is a poor result, but to be asked where he thought he, "lost the game," seemed to be pushing it a little. "We did not lose," he said slowly. "I must...

    Barton Gets Toon Out Of Jail

    You can say whatever you like about his moral compass, and I've certainly used several pages of this newspaper to do that in the past, but you cannot question Joey Barton's courage. On his first full game since being released from prison, the occasional Newcastle midfielder smashed home an early...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1 Leeds United 0

    Well done Steve Tilson and the boys... No boring 1-0 this one. A truly enthralling match at the Hall in which Southend emerged as worthy winners through an excellent long-range free kick from Dan Harding on 18 minutes. Southend started well in the first half with a virtuoso performance from...

    More Bloody Spurs Muck

    Gary Megson must have been furious when he woke up on Sunday morning and saw the backpages. The Bolton Wanderers manager had all week to look forward to a trip to White Hart Lane and then they go and boot out the floundering manager less than 24 hours before kick-off. The swift arrival of Harry...

    Question English City or Town you would least like to live in.

    Was watching the Sunderland vs Newcastle game with my mates up in Bristol yesterday. It suddenly dawned on me that I would hate to live in either of those towns. A lot of people say that Newcastle has got better but the one time I have been there is seemed like a toliet. Sunderland again I have...

    Young Guns Hit Five

    There is a swagger about Arsenal in Europe this year. Since the inception of the Champions League, the Gunners have struggled to take their domestic form with them when they go to the airport, reaching the final just once and crashing out early every other year. In that same time Manchester...
