Expectations for next season

I nearly always have a beer in front of me when I'm typing in a comment to post. Sometimes I finish the beer before I finish the comment. And it doesn't always work, judging by some of the responses I've had. So if typing over a beer doesn't work, I'll try the pub a bit more often.. http://i556.pho...

Hargreaves turn to get a pasting now is it.....?

F A Trophy

Keating Signs!

Unless he is offered a very good deal; any player worth his salt is going to look around surely; I'd be disappointed in any of them if they didn't. Keating's case is a little bit different; trying to make his way in the full-time game and hardly a leading light in the League of Ireland from where he...

If clubs at this level concentrate on the product and spectator experience; 'crap' football doesn't come into it........... As Dave says; going to Eastleigh and being treated as someone important is far better than going to Southampton, being taken for granted and charged far more for it. Torquay U...

My brother attended QES in Crediton and I can assure you it isn't a public school. Yes they used to wear ridiculous striped blazers but it is a state run comprehensive. Maybe it is now and maybe I am confusing the bursary on offer for boarding with 'Public School' ~ my mistake ~ but in the mid sixt...
