    Pre-Match Thread Chesterfield Fc v Southend United

    Getting this up a bit early as I've bunged a poll into the thread as well. Vote for your preference of starting eleven. I'm assuming that Ranger, White and Woody will be fit by the way, hence their inclusion. I doubt we will have 2.5k away fans for this game, but ye Gods, it is a seriously...

    Video Assistant Referee

    I see that the first review off an offside decision happened today on the friendly between France and Spain. Lino flagged for offside as Spain scored their second goal which looked very close. A quick chat between the ref and video ref showed he was onside and goal was given. Not a fan of this...
  3. Ron to make an announcement

    I'm reliably informed that Ron is going to make an important announcement at the end of the season. No I don't know what its about so over to you good people.

    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...

    Any thoughts on the team for this game? Important we get back to winning ways. South Stand Lower is almost full according to the ticket sales checker!

    Adam King

    Half an hour into today's match Adam decided to tweet about how many followers he has gained/lost this week. I replied saying I am glad that's more important to you than watching your teammates. Shock horror he has since deleted the tweet. Personally I think his attitude stinks and we should...

    Congratulations and Commiserations

    I hope you have all enjoyed the Prediction League this session and may I give my congratulations to those that have done well and my commiserations to those that have not done so well. If you haven't done well don't get despondent you will probably find you will do the opposite next time...

    Players going out on loan

    Today it has been announced that Steve Smith has brought the majority share at Bishops Stortford FC. Steve was Kev Maher's assistant at Chelmsford and they are very close. I would be surprised if we don't see a couple of players go on loan there. I also heard a rumour a few months back that when...

    Maidstone v Macclesfield

    Maidstone v Macclesfield Went to this game on Saturday with one of my staff. Nice stadium, good clubhouse, decent support. Three ex-shrimpers in the squads: Macclesfield: Jack Sampson - well he's found his level. Won every header, got stuck in, but rubbish on the ground, can't control the ball...

I think it was the closest one yet. If you haven't done well don't get despondent you will probably find you...

    Breaking News We kept Coker and Leonard!

    Come on guys let's be slightly positive. Sometimes keeping players is just as important as signing them. Just imagine if we'd lost these two, which was a huge possibility. We've manged to keep two of our best players! Keep the faith!

    Franck Moussa

    So Franck Moussa has moved to Walsall ........ and according to an article on the B.B.C. an important consideration was the fact that the Walsall manager is an experienced physiotherapist and that the manager has "a good history of dealing with injuries" ............. which rather begs the...

    Always thought we had a good player if he could stay fit and have a run of games, glad to see him finally making an impact think he will be an important player for us this season!

    Phil Brown to other jobs - Rumours and Gossip

    I've never heard such disrespect for the club. You want either the Sunderland job or to be in the England set up, so disrespectful. 2 years ago Lincoln City didn't want you ! Your aspirations cost us last year and is now starting even before the season begins. How can you expect player loyalty...
  17. Ex-Blues current selection

    Someone suggested selecting a team of ex-Blues based on their current levels,so I've had a go-please tell me any important Players I've forgotten! Team A is players who've proved their ability either with us or elsewhere to play at a higher level:- TEAM A Federici. Bournemouth Francis...

    Question 50 years of hurt with England

    As the Euro's approach we are nearing the 50th anniversary of our last Major triumph (Le Tournoi 97' doesn't count) with the now legendary Wembley 1966 final that was played on the 30th June a distant memory for many. I was born in 1966 alas on August 17th and have known nothing but abject...
