  3. Championship Manager

    I am not sure if this belongs in this forum, but thought it might amuse a few of you. I am still playing a game of CM (01/02 version) that I started about four years ago. I haven't looked at it for a while, as it was just getting too easy. Starting with the actual Blues team of 2001 (one of...

    Horrible Memories

    1984-85 - Average league crowd 1,929 finishing 20th in Div 4 - the year after the Anton Johnson saga 1998-99 - First season back in the basement finishing 18th. You can tell how dire we were when a) Barry Conlon is top scorer b) Mark Beard gets player of the season.

    I wonder...

    if we will go for any of the players released by West Ham... The one that stands out is - Trent McClenahan We played against him in the Cup at their place and he looked solid and he has played Championship level with Anton when West Ham were winning promotion but unfortunately for him has...

    Lost in Translation

    from the guardian What football-related terms are there in other languages that have no direct equivalent in English?" we asked last week. "Don't the Brazilians have a word for dinking the ball over an opponent's head and dashing around to collect it? And does anyone have a better name for the...

  12. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

  17. Smudger


    Pre-season I seem to recall him getting a standing ovation (vs Gillingham I think?) and agents were driving to Roots Hall to offer him contracts and sex with their sisters etc. Then he gets a two year deal and decides to take the season off. I know he was injured for quite a time, but did anyone...
