barren

  1. Barren winter = barren future ?

    Some experts are predicting that we are due to experience the worst winter for 60 years ("100 days of heavy snow" etc). Bearing in mind that the awful winter of 1963 decimated the Football League programme, with some teams not playing for fully two months, I really fear for our cash flow. Say we...
  2. Curse of the Hall

    Last 14 league games at the Hall have produced just 2 wins with 7 defeats!,During this barren run the team have managed to score more than 1 goal in just 1 game,4 occasions the lads have failed to find the net.Averaging under 1 point per game is a shocking return. I know this is old ground but...
  3. Ref Watch ........ Kettle at Aldershot

    As we look to end a winless run in the League against Aldershot which stretches back 23 years (when we did the double over them 5-0 both home and away (Dave Crown got 5 of the 10 goals)), tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle...
  4. If we had beaten Brentford.....

    When would the tickets had gone on sale, after yesterdays game was called off on Friday? Yesterday morning or today?. Either way, reckon there would have been disasters. Had it been yesterday in those freezing temps, some fans would have probably got hyperthermia!. Had it been today as the snow...
  5. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    PL Weekly Points Round 21

    Yeovil holding Charlton, Wycombe winning at Millwall and (let's be honest) us beating MK meant it was always going to be a barren week points wise. But through the mediocrity emerged OBL and Wickford Shrimper with 6 a piece to share top billing The top 4 title chasers managed a meagre 1 each...

    Fergie Must Quit

    I have a dream. I have a dream of Rome, May 27. I see Rio Ferdinand lifting the Champions League trophy, I see Wayne Rooney throwing his shirt into the crowd, but most of all, I see Sir Alex Ferguson leaning into a camera crew and, above the roar of the crowd, giving them the scoop of their...

    Ex-Shrimpers League Goalscorers Table: # Week 11

    Starting this a little earlier this week, as I have a spare 10 minutes. Billy Paynter did what he could never do for us, and hit the net at Roots Hall... then back to his brilliant best, injuring himself celebrating. Gary Hooper after a barren month, and still nobody catching him up decided...

    Stupid England Get There Slowly

    The signs of improvement are visible, but Fabio Capello's mission to revitalise the England team is still some way from completion. There were moments, during this frustrating, attritional non-contest, of class and sophistication, but sporadic style couldn't eclipse the fact that this side are...

    Slipperduke's Mission To Millwall

    With a few edits, this is what the good people of Singapore will be waking up to tomorrow. MtS had a very lucky escape in being cut out of the final edit. 500,000 people could have found out exactly what his idea of a pre-match meal is... As a mere, and very occasional, foot soldier of the...

    Nothing Yet For Keegan

    Newcastle’s worrying, barren run under Kevin Keegan stretched to its third game on Wednesday morning when they were beaten for the second time in four days by Arsenal. Once again, the Magpies came to play football and once again they were ruthlessly punished for their audacity. Most managers...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 3

    "There will be no stadium at Fossetts Farm and the future of the football club remains at Roots Hall." A year after being ousted from position of chairman at Southend United, John Main returned to warn fans that a new stadium was merely a pipe-dream. His words, posted on a Southend United...

    What have been the reasons?

    I haven't done this as a poll as I dare say we all, in our humble opinions, have a multitude of reasons and possibly to many to put as options in a poll. In no particular order mine are. 1. The inclusion of McCormack in midfield. A no nonsense box to box battler that's given us that...

    Tony Blair

    While walking down the street one day, Tony Blair is tragically hit by a truck and killed. His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. "Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official...

    It's a funny old game

    I've been following the recent doom and gloom posts and can't help thinking (through my rose tinted glasses   ) that I can't actually recall better times than these in the 30 plus years that I've been supporting SUFC. I've seen some miserable days at Roots Hall, believe you me, but the last...

    Slipperduke meets...

    When I caught up with Adrian Clarke in London's trendy Camden, it was raining. "It's raining," he said with a wry smile, as the water pounded against the windows. He glanced outside at the widening pools of water on the pavement, the reflected lights of the traffic turning them into...
