  1. DTS


    Sorry to be negative after a good win and in the middle of such a good run but if I have to watch him play much more I am going to hurl myself from my seat in the South Upper. Can someone please explain to me how he has made starts at Old Trafford, Anfield, Stamford Bridge and Highbury? At...

    Proudest moments being a Shrimper

    Being reasonably new to this board I'll apologise in advance to you 'older' members as I'm sure this thread would have been posted before. Reading about Alan Moody triggered off the nostalgic side of me and I started going over some of the greatest moments being a blue. One of the most vivid was...

    When Title Races Go Bad

    Two weeks ago, Manchester United were seven points ahead of Liverpool with a game in hand and the title race appeared to be over. Now, with United losing back-to-back league games, the gap has been slashed to just a single point. Can Liverpool maintain their momentum and romp home to an unlikely...
  4. Favourite football ground?

    Apologies if there has been a thread like this in the past but I went to Milan recently and took in a game at the San Siro and all I can say is wow! The atmosphere and scale of the place has to be seen to be believed, its definately the best ground ive ever been to and I have been to nearly a...

    The return of Robbie Keane to White Hart Lane may have brought an end to his miserable six months on Merseyside, but it leaves Liverpool fans with one pertinent question; just what on earth is going on behind the scenes at their football club? On the pitch, in their most important season for...

    Transfer Deadline Day, bit by bit.

    Transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting of the season and, with the window slamming shut right on our deadline, you're not going to miss a thing. We told Iain Macintosh to set his alarm clock early, power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours...

    Riley Wrecks Chelsea

    What is it about Liverpool - Chelsea? For the second year running the game was decided by the mistakes of a referee. Last year it was Rob Styles who gave Chelsea a penalty so soft that it was bullied at kindergarten, this year it was Riley who sent Frank Lampard off for the kind of routine 50-50...

    Fat Frank

    I have to take my hat of to Fat Frank for the way he took his straight Red card today at Anfield. It was no way a red card IMO and Fat Frank took it it like a pro... Cashley could learn a thing or two from him

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Stan Collymore

    The next man up for election to the Southend United Hall of Fame is Stanley Victor Collymore. I think Stan might be the first man to divide opinion sufficiently to have a few no votes. After all, longevity is one of the criteria and Stan only graced a Southend shirt thirty-three times and...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Chris Powell

    Fighting Talk on Radio 5 Live has a segment called Defending the Indefensible where pundits or comedians (note Mark Lawrensen the two are separate) are given an outrageous statement that they have to somehow justify for 30 seconds of airtime. Now I've always fancied my chances of playing devil's...

    Football Manager 2009 Review

    I have a confession to make. My name is Iain Macintosh and I'm a Football Manager-aholic. It started with the original Championship Manager, way back in 1993. It took 45 minutes to load and there were no real player names, but it changed my life. The first football management game that didn't...

    Liverpool's Litmus Test

    Liverpool's Litmus Test Little by little, Liverpool are beginning to come together. A 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night banished any lingering fears that last weekend's White Hart Lane debacle had caused permanent damage to the morale of the squad and gave yet another...

    Rafa's Tactics Secure Win

    The journey back from London to Liverpool is a long one and, if any of the American contingent from Anfield bothered to make it, you rather hope that someone sat next to them on the bus and told them exactly why they were returning with three points. This victory wasn't due to their only notable...

    Spurs Are Rubbish. Seriously.

    Martin Jol was sacked for less than this. With just one point from their opening four games, their worst start to a season since 1974, this new-look Tottenham Hotspur are rock bottom of the Premier League. Jol, meanwhile, is top of the German Bundesliga with his new club Hamburg. Ah, the irony...

    Benitez Must Improve

    It's two wins from two for Liverpool in the Premier League and European qualification has been secured, but has success ever been this abject? If the sign of a champion is the ability to win when you play badly, then Liverpool should have the title wrapped up by Christmas, because I don't think...

    Rafa Benitez

    In an ideal world, Rafa Benitez would have flown back to England with the rest of us on Monday, tingling with excitement after watching one of the finest international tournaments in decades and clutching a notepad full of potential summer signings. In an ideal world, as manager of one of the...

    England v United States

    And so the recovery continues. Fabio Capello's patient, paternal treatment of the blundering failures who shamed the nation last year is, little by little, beginning to pay off. He hasn't asked them to play in strange formations, he hasn't made sweeping changes, he hasn't even announced a...

    A bullet with Avram Grant's name on it.

    He took them to within a slip of the European Cup and a Steve Bennett of the league, but when a bullet with Avram Grant's name on it came whistling in from the Chelsea boardroom it came as a surprise to absolutely no-one. This good, proud man had always been the wrong choice as Jose Mourinho's...
