    Sir Alex Ferguson

    It's not often that a manager can switch to good, old-fashioned 4-4-2 and be thought of as a tactical genius, but when Sir Alex Ferguson deployed his troops in a formation that many believed he had turned his back on forever, it was another demonstration of why he's still at the top of his game...

    Yet Another Predition League

    I just thought I would mention that I've been playing another Premiersh!te prediction league, other than the one I'm stuffing all the SUFC fans at (500+ point lead at present!!) Anyway, the reason for this thread is not just to boast that with the final week to go, I'm joint first out of over...
  3. Freddy Eastwood: For Sale

    It has just been announced that Freddy Eastwood is officially available for transfer. What are the chances of a return for the prodigal son should you win the play-offs? It hasn’t worked out for him here, and now we have Sylvan Ebanks-Blake who looks the real thing. It’s a shame we haven't seen...

    We'll never score and we need more players

    After much wailing of teeth at the start of the season about where our goals were going to come from, only Swansea (73) have scored more goals than us (61). Unfortunately, we've conceded almost as many as Orient. Southend have no leading scorer in the division's top 20 (FL and Cups) Southend...
  5. Youth and Experience ....

    I think having Moussa and Grant on the pitch showed how the future at Roots Hall now definately belongs to a new generation and that Mr Mahers departure was essential to allow room for new faces - I am not sure what sort of average age League One teams boast but having Walker (20) and Kanu...

    Are we the greatest team in the world ??

    I know that we have a 100% record in all competitions against Manchester United but is there any other club in the country or indeed the world that can boast the same ? If not , I would humbly suggest that this makes us the greatest team on this planet :cool:
  8. Time between conquests...

    I could make this the Friday poll due to DtS's lack of inspiration, but I don't want to tread on his toes....:flamer: Anyway, we have had the 'quickest conquest', the 'first conquest' 'roughest bird' etc etc but my poser is this:- What is the smallest time period you have managed between...

    The Best Birthday Present Ever

    Yesterday I thought the writing was on the wall, or on the toilet pan. I'd woken up with a migrane, dodgy stomach and had a case of the 2 bob bits, it was my birthday (25yrs young) and to kop it all off I faced the prospect of watching my team be thrashed on national tele by the worlds biggest...
  10. Another Brain Teaser

  12. Echo Of Glory

    Greetings people. Couldn't see how I could contact mods or staff members, so I thought I would just post this. For the past couple of days I've been trying to get off the ground a little pet project and finally it's at a stage where I can kind of share it with everyone. I've...

    Lee BRADBURY

    Congratulations to Lee Bradbury for making his 300th full league appearance when he started the game against Hartlepool United on Saturday. There are a few clubs to boast Bradbury's presence since his transfer to Portsmouth from Cowes Sport in 1995, including Manchester City (34 full...

    4-2 to the super Blues!!

    What a terrific game of football! Superb performance from the boys. The effort was top class and we thoroughly deserved the win. We played some great football and took our chances well. Swansea played some nice football but lacked quality in the final third, and I think Barrett and Prior...
