    Franck Moussa

    So Franck Moussa has moved to Walsall ........ and according to an article on the B.B.C. an important consideration was the fact that the Walsall manager is an experienced physiotherapist and that the manager has "a good history of dealing with injuries" ............. which rather begs the...

  5. Question What would you do??????

    Tooooo much doom & gloom on here, Ron this Ron that, Brown this Brown that, so lets get away from that for 2 minutes & pretend that you are running SUFC with a lottery win, lets face it, IT COULD BE YOU!!! So, its Saturday night & you have just scooped £50 million on a rollover lottery...

    Rohan Ricketts

    Shameless plug yes, but I interviewed Rohan for my podcast and we spoke briefly about his trial at Southend. He basically said that he was initially offered around 3k a week which was then dramatically reduced by 60% a few days later. Just interesting to hear he was offered that much at the...
  7. Latest Rumours Beckham to Southend?!?

    John Terry and the 'unacceptability of racism'

    Interesting updates from the trial. It's alleged that John Terry "used words based on Anton Ferdinand's membership of a racial group, allegedly said in response to a physical gesture from Ferdinand relating to his well publicised alleged affair with a teammate's wife". It's been claimed that...

    Paul Sturrock Can do No Wrong!

    ..... Well he can't can he? If it's not doing a great job to keep one player satisfied (Granty), or showing great determination to get stuck into a sticky project, or his ability to bring in a whole new team of signings, or his ability to show he has thought of using one extra formation, then I...
  10. Costly Clauses Mount Up For Pompey

    It must be difficult supporting Portsmouth. It wasn’t so long ago you were walking Wembley Way triumphantly. Of course, it wasn’t so long ago that Portsmouth main goal was surviving in the Premier League… Now, you’re flinging England’s number 1 around like a QPR caretaker manager because...

    Wenger's Vengeance

    Try and imagine, if you will, Arsene Wenger throwing a tantrum. It doesn't really fit in with his professorial demeanour, does it? I can imagine him taking me to one side, putting a hand on my shoulder and telling me that he wasn't angry with me, that he was just disappointed. I can imagine that...
  12. New Stadium...different view

    I believe the sheer size of FF will more than likely become our achilles heel,During our last season in the championship Roots Hall offers around 235,000 home seats available over 23 games,Yet only around 195,000 were actually sold which of course begs the question why build the proposed 22000...

    Trouble in Toon

    Believe it or not, a lot of Newcastle United fans were philosophical about their relegation at the end of last season. They recognised that you cannot run a football club as appallingly as Freddie Shepherd and Mike Ashley had without inviting serious consequences into your frontroom for dinner...
  14. How long will it be until investment is made?

    Looking at Clarkey's words about the ambition that Huddersfield show and their ability to offer a 3 year contract I wondered how long it would be, if ever, foreign investment will be made into the leagues outside the premiership in England. Obviously QPR have had some of the wealthiest...

    Grays Chairman Woodward In Slight Over-Reaction Shocker (Again)

    Why England Bother

    If you happen to be in possession of a British passport and you're in Berlin tonight, it might be worth taking your football boots with you. Given the speed at which England's stars are dropping out of contention, you'll probably get a game. Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley...

    Rant and Dec!!

    RANT AND DEC!!!! It is believed that Tv's beloved geordie duo have found themselves involved in another scandal. Just minutes after Dec's seedy past was revealed and the news that the two were arrested in connection with the mysterious fire on the pier of Weston super mare the cheeky boys have...

    Should we sign a striker on loan ????

    If we do the message is clear - Tilly does not think that the lads(Hooper, MacDonald Foran ) we have are good enough to step up , which begs the question why do we persist with them anyway . If we don't we are looking very short of options Adam Barratt up front anyone ??
  19. Sam and DTS Poem.

    Sam's Poem. Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man, who's not a creep, One who's handsome, smart and strong. One who loves to listen long, One who thinks before he speaks, One who'll call, not wait for weeks. I pray he's gainfully employed, When I spend his cash, won't be...

    Varney and Iwelumo...

    Have both just signed for Charlton. Charlton have paid an initial £2m for Varney, 24, while 28 year old Iwelumo arrives on a free transfer. Can't find a link for the above but is on ITV Telextext page 403. Is this possibly the end of speculation linking Fred to any possible move to...
