  1. Round 13

    First up today Quentin Tarantino (GraysBlue Jnr) takes on Wes Anderson (Aberdeen Shrimper) in what will probably be a one-sided affair. Evidence please!
  2. The English Cricket Coaster Continues

    Being English, I've come to expect and almost predict roller coaster Summers of sport. So often it takes the form of expectation and devastation that a Football World Cup brings. This Summer, it's been the turn of the England Cricket Team. The tumultuous Cricket Coaster started with the rise of...
  3. New battle of the film directors.

    Regarding my other thought about Battle of the Directors what with people (shamefully) not having seen any Coen Brother's films, criticising Wes Anderson and Blade Runner, I suggest that this is limited to directors of films of the last 30 years...counting out sure fire winner Alfie Hitch. Ok...

    Justin Langers' Leaked Ashes Dossier.

    England players are the best in the world at tailing off when things don't go their way, Swann only gets wickets from balls that don't turn, and Anderson is a pussy. Got us sussed then :D:'(
  5. King Flintoff Ends Aussie Reign

    Australia's 75 year reign at Lords came tumbling down with a whimper, as King Flintoff gave England victory on the back of his first five wicket haul at the ground. Nothing could suppress the nerves at the Home of Cricket this morning, a terrific stand of 185 between Michael Clarke and Brad...
  6. Random Unplanned Nights Out

    Last night I went out for a meal with some mates of mine, kind of to celebrate the fact we'd all graduated and kind of just an excuse to have a few. I ended up walking in to my front door at 5:30am this morning, having consumed a stupid amount of alcohol and I am now suffering. Hangover aside...
  7. First Signings from last 18 years

    Thought this would make interesting reading, signing dates get messy pre 1990. As you can see only in 1999 did we manage to secure a transfer in June everyone else arriving in July and August. Going on calculations here looks like its going to be around 18th July. Kevin Betsy Bristol C Signed...

    United Blow Their Chance

    Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United Eto'o 10 Messi 70 He may have mellowed with age, enough at least to allow the dignitaries to slip a runners-up medal over his head while still smiling warmly, but Sir Alex Ferguson must be furious with the way that this Champions League final was allowed to...

    Job Done

    Manchester United 0-0 Arsenal Sir Alex Ferguson stepped lightly across the slick Old Trafford turf, turning slowly and taking in the view as if it was his first ever visit to the stadium. With eyes full of awe and a broad grin splashed across his face, he let out a long, sigh of satisfaction...

    Ruthless United Stun Arsenal

    There is a reason why Manchester United are the best team in the world. They don't lift all those trophies simply because they have better players, or smarter tactics. They succeed so frequently because Sir Alex Ferguson has built himself a team of winners, professional and ruthless, indomitable...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Sansome

    Ah-oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, its Sammy! Yep, first up from the 4th round of nominations is popular goalkeeper Paul Sansome. If Sammy is elected, he'll become the third individual from the double promotion era to be elected, following in the footsteps of his manager Dave...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 4th round of nominations

    It's time for the fourth round of nominations. Rules and guidelines are here. Basically each poster gets one nomination per round, so use your nomination wisely, and individuals need five nominations to go forward to a ballot. So far Chris Powell, Sid Broomfield, Stan Collymore, Ron Pountney...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Alan Moody

    Next up for nomination is Alan Moody. The last two nominees, David Crown and Ricky Otto look unlikely to make it into the Hall of Fame (at least on the first ballot), probably because their glittering Southend career's were deemed too short. That is unlikely to keep Alan Moody out. In fact it...

    United Crushed By Rampant Reds

    Manchester United 1-4 Liverpool (Ronaldo 23) (Torres 28) (Gerrard 44, pen) (Aurelio 77th) (Dossena, 90+1) Old Trafford has never emptied so quickly. Even before Manchester United were put out of their misery by referee Alan Wiley, there were more empty seats than supporters. Those...

    manchester United V Liverpool

    This weekends big game between two of the top four kicks of at 12:45 today. Liverpool have to win this game if they want to stay in the title race. I'm predicting a 0-0 draw or a 1-0 win for United with Rooney scoring. MANCHESTER UNITED v LIVERPOOL LINE-UPS Man Utd: Van der Sar, O'Shea...

    England tour of the West Indies

    Amidst Andy Murray's exit from the Australian Open and the continuing contest between Australia and South Africa 'Down Under', England's tour of the Windies seems to have slipped somewhat under the radar. New skipper Andrew Strauss made a second-ball duck in the first inninings of the tour...
