  1. That'll be New Zealand Mike. Meanwhile, the Final was quite disappointing really. My feeling was that Howard Webb would probably let the Dutch get away with a bit more physical challenges which would give them half a chance against a Spanish team that has been passing teams off the park for a couple of years now. When Robben finally got a chance - and missed it, I was sure there would only be the one winner -Spain. Iniesta duly obliged, though he cut it fine. Other teams are going to have to come up with a way of nullufying Spain's pass and move game, preferably without resorting to the he
  2. A much better performance from England this afternoon. Could have won by 2 or 3. I have to say that the USA deserved to qualify. They've had a couple of perfectly good goals disallowed, hit the woodwork twice but ultimately grabbed their place in the next round in the nick of time. By winning the group USA now have a very good chance of progressing some distance into the competition. For England it's going to be a hard slog ... starting with Germany. If we can overcome them Argentina almost certainly await.
  3. Mark, Are you asking about the CE842 envelope, or my test envelope? If the 842 envelope, I do not, what I have is just what Hunt posted as his scan in his article. Sorry I could not have been of more help. It would have been the one posted by Hunt. Thanks anyway. Mark
  4. Hi Mike, do you have a copy of the clearer picture of the envelope that hasn't been cropped in ? Thanks Mark
  5. Never mind JFK, the conspiracy to top all conspiracies is... how come Germany got to practise a full year with the much criticised World Cup Ball. Is it any wonder they gave the most convincing performance in the first round of matches ..? Mark PS: Despite Spain losing their first match, I'm confident they will win the remaining 2 to qualify for the latter stages
  6. Unfortunately (or fortunately) there was a 'spillage' from England goalie Robert Green at a crucial moment before half time.
  7. Frantz, you've come up with a fresh approach there. Fascinating. I'm pleased to see your trying it out on other photographs including the autopsy, and look forward to seeing more.
  8. West Ham (inspired by the return of Parker) finally found their shooting boots against Wigan and also found themselves in a virtually unassailable position by 5 to 5 on Saturday.That was something not many were predicting after the back to back home defeats aginst Wolves and Stoke...but welcome nonetheless. Safety (barring a mathematical miracle) was assured when Burnley eventually crumbled against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon and, yet again, I'm sure I can't be the only relieved West Ham fan thinking we must never allow ourselves to get into this position again... again. David Gold has bee
  9. I don't think many people predicted the turnaround that occured in West Ham's season starting with the second half up at Goodison Park. A cheap goal behind, Mido fluffing a penalty (who honestly thought he was going to score - not me) we looked odds on for a 7th defeat in a row. The second half was a completely different story and, but for another moment of Spector inspired defensive sloppiness ( we shouldn't have been surprised, Yakabu always scores against West Ham), we would have deserved to have won the game. As it was we went 2-1 down with time running out. Cue Faubert to supply easily
  10. The team certainly put in a better performance all around against Stoke yesterday. I admit it would have been difficult to play as badly again but personally I felt the crowd appreciated the players were giving 100%. My heart sank when I heard that Franco wasn't available for selection. He'd transformed the team on Tuesday night. Instead we had Mido supporting Cole upfront. To be fair, Mido gave it his all but, when a chance eventually fell to him following up Cole's rebound, he failed to control an awkward boucing ball and the moment was lost. In the second half Stoke really got to grips wi
  11. I certainly can pick 'em... My favourite quote about football is that "men frequently discard women during their lives, however, they choose a football team for life". (Like batteries, current Chelsea and Man Utd fans are not included.) West Ham is one gigantic swan with all of us swimming frantically around her. Mated hopelessly for life I blame me father. Mind you, he filled my head with tales of Allison, Keeble, Cantwell and Bond, then compounded it by taking me to see a team that included Moore, Hurst and Peters... oh, and last but not least... Budgie Byrne. A fantastic player ! Any We
  12. Just had a quick look Jack. The films are taken from slightly different angles but you would expect to see something of ? man. Unless,of course, he was stood behind B & C, then stepped to the side as the car came by ? MH
  13. Well John, it can't be the easiest time for you at the moment. I hope that writing the tribute to your Mum has been a helpful experience for yourself, her family and friends. I smiled to myself when I read the paragraph about her being told 'girls do not read books' and 'did as she was told'.. I had a similar conversation with my 85 year old Aunt recently. I guess woman of their generation had things very different. Her conversation with your father about his 'secret world' seems to have had quite an impact on you. In one of those moments they set you off on a path towards your vocation. I
  14. Yes, some good shooting there albeit at stationary targets. In myth # 10 the heads seem to blown practically clean off - whether the shot was from behind or to the right, so I'm not convinced we can make an effective comparison. MH
  15. Crystal Palace in administration ? Moses will be going 'somewhere' then. By the way, I listened to David Gold on Talksport last night with Mark Saggers and Alvin Martin. He said that West Ham would change their name to West Ham Olympic "over my dead body" ! Mark
  16. Victor Moses would be a fantastic signing for West Ham. Un-surprisingly there seem to be several interested parties so it will be quite a coup if they pull it off.
  17. Just an observation. You don't have a clue what you are talking about..... Craig, I'd just finished reading your Flushing the 'Full Flush left' Argument thread where you showed some frames from the film shot by Rick Janowitz and Scott Myers which "show continuous full flush left image penetration that is in perfect agreement with the Zapruder film". Fine. that shows it can be achieved. Thanks for that. I then looked at this thread and there's a frame from the A side of Zapruder's film of one of his grand children playing. The image I'm looking at doesn't even reach the sprocket hole. Y

  19. Just an observation, there doesn't seem to be much 'Full Flush Left' going on in that frame of Zapruder's Grand Child.
  20. The last couple of days have been a bit like watching a political news story break. Sky appear to feel obliged to film fans who think it's a good thing/bad thing/so so thing (delete as applicable Personally, I'm looking forward to a bit of calm, mid-table obscurity starting with comfortably avoiding relegation, though I'm not sure any club can expect an easy ride in these media driven days. With the benefit of hindsight, I think a bit of mass hysteria kicked in when Tevez/Mascherano came in. The 'loaded' Icelanders didn't help when they came in with ambitions of Champions League. The suppo

  23. Re: "To what does the "breaking Slipknot" comment relate?" In this case the word "breaking" would mean becoming very popular. MH
  24. So, Mark Hughes joins the list. On the face of it his record this season looks very impressive, League Cup Semi-Finalists, just 2 defeats, still thereabouts in the Premier League... the timing of his dismissal seems a bit harsh. However, following on the back of a procession of draws, the defeat at Spurs mid-week was probably his undoing. With the transfer window looming up on the January horizon it's not that much of a surprise that the money men at Man City seem to have lost patience. That's one impact of the transfer window that nobody predicted. As long as it's in place team managers
