    Thread about the English Channel Tragedy

    No, I'm not starting it up again. I didn't post on the original but I've just read it. Come on AVFTT, we've got to be better than that. People died here. The forum doesn't need a yaa-boo one-upmanship thread on occasions like this.

    Don't Shoot Me....

    ...and I'm not even a piano player. No, my reason for posting this is a concern about our lack of wins of late. Of our last 4 games - Stoke, QPR, Swansea and West Brom - I'd say that Stoke was the only disappointment. Getting the draws against QPR, Swansea and WBA were good results. Don't get...

Step forward Sir Christopher Chope, MP for Christchurch, who duly...

    Compare & Contrast

    Two men. Both the wrong side of 50. One attended a grammar school in Leicester followed by Clare College, Cambridge. The other attended Eton College followed by Balliol, Oxford. One man is a holder of the Order of Merit. The other isn't. The one who holds the OM wore a mask at COP 26 and made a...

    Throwing Missiles

    So the juvenile delinquents who throw missiles onto the pitch romantically believe they are an important hooligan group called Muckers. They are no such thing. They are a group of puerile, ill-educated nobodies who might get the Club a three point deduction. Grow up kiddies or go and bother your...

    Reading the various threads it's obvious that we're all as high as kites at the moment. I don't want the bubble to burst on Saturday, but even if it does, I think we're going somewhere good. UTP!

    Reading TTV

    Not after a big thread here but I've just been on TTV and it looks like I can pay £10 to watch it live on Wednesday. Can anyone confirm before I part with my tenner?

    The admin, Please Read....note.

    Reading the Guardian this morning got me to thinking about the way political discourse in our country had become so coarse, so aggressive. I believe that much of this has to do with the way that on-line social media had enabled anybody to put their twopenneth up for consideration without having...

    Following Saturday's Guardian article about the strides being made in environmental protection at Forest Green Rovers, comes an article today focussing on work the EFL is doing with the 72 clubs to expand upon this initiative: "On Monday the league will announce details of EFL Green Clubs, a...
