  1. Bradley Lowery RIP

    Very sad news. It's been incredible how his story has become so public. I hope that some good things can come from this in terms of research, health funding and awareness of these terrible paediatric cancers. RIP Bradley.

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...

    Engaging with the club's supporters

    Interesting article here from Supporters Direct on fan engagement, we've brought in the idea of "buying" the opportunity to lead the teams out this season, but what other ideas could we suggest for Roots Hall? You’ll have heard a lot this season on the disconnect between supporters and clubs...

  12. Can a footballer learn to control anger?

    Or for that matter can any human being learn to control anger? Well the simple answer is yes we can learn to control anger. But in general anger cannot be managed simply by someone trying harder next time to avoid getting angry (as some seem to think). I have never heard of footballers...
  13. Ticket Office Chaos vs Port Vale threads

    Never mind the rubbish I watched for 80 minutes - anybody here victim of the inept ticket office? Arrived in the queue at 2.20 - got a 'ticket' at 3.10, thus missing the first Port Vale goal. And the reason, I hear you ask? They'd run out of paper to print tickets - and this after the third home...

  15. Speed Awareness Course

    England 1-1 USA

    Ok time for your reports and ratings. I thought is was a very lacklustre performance by England first game or not..To me far to many people thought the ball was a hot potato and did not want it enough. At times even at throw ins players did not move or show any interest in wanting the ball. It...

    Tilly the Tactician

    Right, so in recent season, actually, since Tilly took charge, he has labelled against him his ability to employ the right tactics during a game, and has often been described as reactive as opposed to proactive. Well, I'd just like to maybe redress the balance a little bit here - Now the dust...

    Malone AND Herd

    Crossed my mind last night that the thought of playing both Malone (at left back) and johnny herd on the left side of midfield when his injury permits wouldn't be a bad idea. Moussa was woeful last night, and IMHO I thought Malone had no cover in front of him, and was exposed too often. Moussa...
