    The Greatest....

    Today marks the 70th bithday of Muhammad Ali, it's such a shame to see him so ravaged by Pakinsons Disease, I remember the brilliant young athlete he was in the 60's & 70's. The words legend and great are overused, but not in the case of Ali.

    Andy Ansah

    Picked this up off the net.....quite a good read for those who remember the legends of the early 90's... Andy Ansah’s wing wizardry for Southend United between 1990 and 1996 helped propel the club into the upper echelons of English football, as the Shrimpers bagged back-to-back promotions from...

    Semenya a hermaphrodite!!!!!!

    Gender tests on South African athlete Caster Semenya have found she is a hermaphrodite, an Australian newspaper reported, as a senior official admitted she may not be "100 per cent" female. http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/11092009/58/report-semenya-hermaphrodite.html

    Pistol-Whip The Cheats

    Nothing irritates me more than diving. Seriously, it's right up there above noisy eating, people who play tinny R'n'B through their cellphones on the bus and that invisible scratch on my West Wing DVD that smashes straight through the important bit ten minutes into every episode when you're...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

    The Never Everton Story

    And so ends a miserable weekend for the more prosperous end of the Premier League. Wigan's narrow victory over a lacklustre Everton at the JJB Stadium meant that, along with every member of the big four failing to score, every team in the top ten failed to win. The victory drags Steve Bruce's...

    Gallas Must Go

    There is a saying in England that it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. Apparently no-one told William Gallas. The Arsenal captain, in an interview that will do for his career what Little Bighorn did to General Custer's, accused his...

    Standing Ovation? For A Cheat?

    So we've all forgiven Cristiano Ronaldo then have we? Did I miss a meeting? I've seen some strange things in football this week. I've watched first-hand as a star-studded Tottenham Hotspur side fail to string more than three passes together. I've sat in surprise at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea...

    The Olympics

    I would have put this on The Slippery Column, but I thought that maybe it would have a wider interest. I think I'm going to get a lot of hate mail for this one.... It has swallowed up half of Rafa Benitez's midfield, savaged Mark Hughes' plans for a successful start, forced AC Milan fans to...

    Joey Barton

    There is little in this world as infuriating as the sight of a young man, guilty of vicious assault, walking away from a courtroom with just a suspended sentence. There is anger at the clemency, fury at the perception that justice has failed. In the case of Joey Barton, however, there is just an...

    Interview with a Zoner - Part 4.

    Todays interview is with Ldnfatso, sadly like many of todays generation despite being born to white anglo saxon parents he believes he’s black. Easily recognisable in the south upper where he sports a Hoodie top, jeans ten sizes to big for him and a Rastafarian hat, So Strap yourselves in...
  12. Charlie Mulgrew

    Absolute Rubbish if any other teams are spying on here . But between us lot ,we have got to sign this guy on a long contract . He started slowly and looked like he couldn't actually defend the first few games he played for us ,but boy ,has he improved . Great going forward ,brilliant left...

    Gallas Is A Girl

    Arsenal’s season has been thrown into jeopardy by the loss of Eduardo to a horrific injury, but that may be only the start of their problems. The loss of William Gallas to a disturbing and hysterical breakdown may be even more costly. Eduardo, as good as he was, was just a player. Gallas is...

    Who would win in a fight?

    First he angered Matt Harrold by impyling he was ****, then he incurred the wrath of the whole primate world by implying Franky "The Gorilla" Banks didnt deserve a second testimonial - But now he has really gone and done it.... Ldn Fatso's (aka Steve the Slagger) one man mission to annoy the...
  16. Tilson Out !!

    Glad to see a decent manager at the Hall - nothing like a close up on BOOT-it Boothroyd to show us how football should be played - BOOT-it and win the throw in and then scrap for the corner - class tactics from the man who shook the Prem-****e. And seriously when is Tilson going to learn how...

    World Athletics

    Just watching (live from Osaka) the World athletics. It is interesting to see Kelly Sotherton is ****ed off that a previously banned athlete finished ahead of her in silver medal postion therefore demoting her to bronze. What with it getting more and more difficult to stop the cheats, why...

    Best trainers in the world.

    Who makes the best pair of trainers in the world? Please specifiy genus and species. For me it is Adidas Rod Laver. Note, I'm assuming no one here is an elite athlete so I am talking about 'street' performance. No bolleaux about pronation, shock absorbtion, traction etc. please. Also, note...

    Today's Tips

    Try these at Newmarket. Suggestion is a £1 win patent, total stake £7. Or 50p E/W, it's your choice. 1-30 Don't Panic (very appropriate for all Southend fans at the mo, and very iconic in 'The hitchikers guide to the galaxy') 2-00 Magic America (A good Blur song) 2-35 Chataway (if it runs...

    Southend v. Tranmere

    Erm... am I missing something here, or has no one managed to put up a match report for our 0-0 draw at Tranmere? Oh well... not much to report, really.  We were as mediocre at Prenton Park as we had been scintillating the previous week against Brentford. I'm too tired tonight to do a big, long...
