Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. They are running an African Footballer Of The Year contest...obviously thought up in the last couple of days. What's the prize, I wonder? A Mars bar and a guarantee of work written in crayon, to be rendered up to the customs officer who opens your executive travelling compartment, read container? I mean, come on. Of The Year......blah,blah. Short on stories? I could tell some.
     
  2. A LINKY would be handy for any that might be interested.
     
  3. Whooooooooo, whoa! Don't get me wrong. African footballers are arguably amongst the best you can get...there are tons of them, and it would be a good contest. It's just the Beeb dragging up something they percieve as "cool" as an "interactive" exercise. Cheap "journalism" going even lower to fill up time and space.
