    Anthony Wordsworth

    Announced by the player on Twitter. The arrogance of the modern footballer to pre-empt the clubs official announcement.
  2. Ted Smith/Daniel Bentley

    Think we might get some interesting views while trying to compare their starts in the team.I think Ted is looking at least as good as Daniel did back then,when he was put in too soon ahead of Paul Smith. Ted has done well in both these last 2 games.At Wigan he might just have parried the ball...

    Is there no end to Blatter's arrogance?

    It's hard to believe that Blatter has the front to stay in post! http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/34384930
  4. West Ham - Why do they do it???????????????

    West Ham fans sitting in the home end... Is it arrogance? Are they lost? Do they think they own the place? Is it respect? I just don’t get it! As a fan in general, why on earth wouldn’t you want to sit with your own fans..???

    Dear Andorra

    Now, on the off chance that someone from Andorra is holidaying in Singapore and is reading this article, let me make it clear that I have nothing against your country. I've never met an Andorran, which is hardly surprising as I believe there are only about 30 of you in existence, but I'm sure...

    Tyne Is Running Out

    Newcastle United are going down. Whatever you read in the press, whatever club sources say on the website, they are circling the drain ready to be sucked down into the Championship. There is no hope on Tyneside anymore. Their supporters, more than anyone else at the club, realise that this is...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ricky Otto

    Next up for election to the Hall of Fame is Ricky Otto. Ricky Otto had it all: skill, flair and funny looking hair. He was signed by B****y F*y for £100,000, a fee that seems suspiciously high for a Leyton Orient reserve. I won't make any libellous suggestions about brown envelopes...

    Prove You're Not A Cheat

    As Cristiano Ronaldo lay on the frozen turf at St James Park watching a chorus line of tiny birds circling his head, I wonder if he had time to ponder the irony of his situation. After years spent convincing referees that he had been fouled when he hadn't, he now finds himself being cynically...

    Is Ronaldo Growing Up?

    So that's the World Player of the Year, the Balon D'or, the PFA Player of the Year, the Football Writers Footballer of the Year, the European Golden Shoe and something called the FIFPro Award. It seems that the only thing Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't won in the last twelve months is the US election...

    Why Aren't They Keen On Keane?

    Rumours travel fast in the North-East of England. Nobody is entirely sure what happened or where it started, but Wearside was abuzz last Friday with the 'news' that Roy Keane had walked out on Sunderland. Everyone knew about it, apparently. Some said that he'd not turned up for training. Others...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1 Leeds United 0

    Well done Steve Tilson and the boys... No boring 1-0 this one. A truly enthralling match at the Hall in which Southend emerged as worthy winners through an excellent long-range free kick from Dan Harding on 18 minutes. Southend started well in the first half with a virtuoso performance from...

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows.

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows. No sweeping advertising campaigns and no collectable badges. Here in the UK, you wouldn't guess that we're just hours away from the start of a major football tournament. Ok, so the nearest that the England team can get to European involvement...

    Should probably give a mention of what I thought of them on the day. Clearly the standout performer was Cureton. His footballing brain is outstanding to the extent that you feel sorry for those around him trying to keep up. Sodje made a mstake but he was on to the ball so quickly and scored...

    Another refresher as to why we hate West Ham...

    ...have been following this thread on 'Knees Up Mother Brown' regarding the Leeds game....apparently we are "West Ham territory football club or no football club". Their sheer arrogance never fails to surprise me even when they are trying their best to 'do a Swindon' in the Premiership...
