    Interview with an Exile: Part 3 - Canada Shrimper

    This week, John from Canada takes part in the interview with an exile chat. The following picture is from his latest trip over to Southend for the Swindon game: 1) How long have you been an exile? A) Been out of the country for 10 years less 8 months in the middle 2) Why did you...
  2. FA Cup - Hornchurch vs POSH

    How lame am I?! I cannot afford the trip to Telford with the kids in tow so, not being one to miss out an FA Cup round, I decided to take them to AFC Hornchurch vs The POSH instead. Don't know where to spend the quid I have left, at the bookies for Hornchurch to win as the odd's are much...
  3. Ref Watch ...... Bristol away

    Saturday's match at Bristol Rovers will be officiated by Karl Evans from Manchester. He is in his second season and has refereed neither team before. He is an official I have never seen and know little about so I can only give you statistics rather than opinion. He has refereed 28 League...

    Help For Heroes

    Thought I would post this up as I feel it is in aid of a really good cause, even if it appears on the Col Ewe site. Colchester United announced that they will be holding the "Game of History" Celebrity v Army football match on Sunday November 2 The people behind the celebrity Soccer Six...

    One month loans

    Seeing as we have by my reckoning three of them (Sawyer, Christophe, Federici, possibly HRK) whatever happens next with these guys is going to be important in our season. Obviously we're keen to get high quality players in for as long as possible where normally we might not be able to prise...
  6. A view from the Orient

    Well done on your win. Thoroughly deserved, after a good first half display by your mob and a shocking display by us. You guys (the players) were clearly pumped up and totally battered us during the first half. I thought we shaded the second half, up until your third, but as a team we cannot...

    Your New Home

    Was listestening to Vine on Radio 2 a few days ago. The subject was "Would You Buy a House that had been "Repo"" One guy came on and said that it was all the homeowners fault and he had no sympathy. Others had no problem. Then what seemed a majority said that it would have bad Karma. I...

    Lehman Bros.

    Anyone here likely to be directly affected by them filing for bankruptcy? Looking out of my window at Canary Wharf it seems they can't even afford to turn the lights on.

    Letter To Ashley

    After trawling through Mike Ashley's emotional 1664 word press release, Slipperduke has a few questions for him.... "I paid £134 million out of my own pocket for the club. I then poured another £110 million into the club not to pay off the debt but just to reduce it. The club is still in...
  10. Croatia vs England

    so the hype begins.. this is a huge game and we can't afford to lose it IMO, starting lineup? james brown terry woodgate/rio (if fit) a cole theo barry bullard (sorry lamps but you couldn't even dictate the play against andorra) j cole rooney heskey

    The Bailey question

    The Club could have refused to sell him thereby making him honour his contract, however I dont think they could afford the extra payments that would have been due to Barnet. We are short of an experienced midfielder and a good centre back. Is that Baileys fault as well?

    Is Football ****ed?

    They say that a week is a long time in politics but, in football, it's a veritable epoch. This time seven days ago, Manchester City were struggling to pay their players, West Ham were enjoying their best start to a season in nine years and, at a surprisingly perky and entertaining Newcastle...
  13. Paul Ifil transfer listed.

    Just been transfer listed by Palace, maybe we can't afford a permanent move for him but we could get him on loan maybe, then buy at a later date.

    Steve McClaren

    I think it's time that I made my peace with Steve McClaren. On Sunday night, sat in The Balcony off Orchard Road, I was asked what I thought of him and it was a full ten minutes of swearing, gesticulating and a little bit of frothing at the mouth before I realised that everyone around me was...
