The Sunbury Centre stuff

by dom_pedro on Wed Aug 23, 2006 9:40 pm

Here are a few things that need advertising.

Features

Interviews

In the Features area you'll be able to re-read AlecW's jovial interview with

Mr Ian Robertson of the BBC

regarding the improbability of ever getting a large share of the British media's attention unless we sign Wilkinson, BOD, Lomu, Umaga, Campese, Carling, Doddie Weir, Dusty O'Hare, Wendall Bleeding Hello Sailer and some fertilized eggs from Charlotte Church! The interview is here by the way.

PaulHP has done a shed-load of work for LI Old Boys thread and has also now profiled and interviewed

Reverend Robin Roe C.B.E., M.C., M.A.

and found some great articles in a 1969 edition of Rugby World

The Hooker becomes a Monk
The Revival of London Irish.

Paul has now also interviewed

Niall Woods
Harry Rea
Kevin Putt
Ken Kennedy
Mansell Heslip
Pat Parfrey
Peter Enevoldson
Clive Meanwell
Gary Halpin
George Crawford

You can also find JonnyC's expanding series on Coaches: Past and Present there too with Part One being a look at Brian Smith and Part Two being a squint at Gary Gold.


Articles

Now added to the Features area is the Fields of Athenry article ... A Simple Folk Song? and the article about the history of London Irish badges.

Match Reviews and Reports

The Sunbury Centre Match Reviews and Reports area can be found at

http://www.london-irish.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=2

or by accessing it from the Front Page. It contains all our match reports after they have had just under a week on the General Messageboard. They will be 'stickied' initially before being put out to pasture in the Reviews and Reports area.

Match Previews

The Match Previews also start out as 'stickied' threads here on the General Messageboard before finding their way to the comfortable surroundings of the aptly named Match Previews area

http://www.london-irish.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=5

where they can watch endless episodes of 'Last of the Summer Wine' and 'Crown Court' with a nice cup of tea and a digestive.

Video Clips

Once upon a time this was a vibrant and unique section of our site containing five pointer clips from our matches (provided by Bisach and InSight Corporate Video). It all got a bit messy because someone didn't like what we were doing and put a stop to it, so it now contains a few odd videos, cheesey montages and stuff I've nicked off the OSB ;-).

Cheers, Dom! Almost forgotten about the WAP service, and with the new season upon us I'd best get me phone links updated!

BrianW has now added a little bit of the WAP service onto the front page.

The section highlighted with red works the same way as the WAP service to bring latest scores as well as recent results to the front page. Also the part in green will list the next few matches and the part highlighted with blue will record Irish's most recent results.

New on the front page is our entirely serious "Meet the oppo" featurette with lovely profiles of opposition players provided by Mrs Chicken. This week* we have Mr Josh Lewsey of London Wasps.

* it is unlikely that a new featurette will be available weekly

Something new ...

First there was the mammoth thread that started with such a small suggestion from JonnyC : "I wonder if we could trace the whereabouts of ex-Irish players who are still in the sport" he said probably not realising that he'd keep several of us busy for sometime with http://www.london-irish.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=271 . So that thread got too big and split off into a new thread in the Features area : http://www.london-irish.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=987 which I think just confused everybody.

The NEW Old Boys List

So now we have http://www.london-irish.co.uk/oldboys/index.php which even gets a link on the main menu bar underneath our banner. It's a new fangled database type thing for you to browse through and it even links to an interview by PaulHP if we have one for them. Enjoy!

To list all the ex-players that have been interviewed by PaulHP you can use

http://www.london-irish.co.uk/oldboys/i ... =interview.

More interviews on the way soon I'm told.
