    We will be playing Southampton next season

    Sky have just announced they have or will have 10 points deducted and so a nice little trip at their place is a certainty next year. Feel for their supporters though.

    AFC Wimbledon to be promoted from the Conference South

    Almost a mathematical certainty- one game to go and only AFC Wimbledon losing and Hampton & Richmond winning by a combined goal difference of 13 can stop it happening. A victory for football methinks. It's a tough ask but hopefully they can repeat the feat next season.

    Troubled Times For Cech

    Chelsea's season is in the sweaty hands of one man and he doesn't look entirely happy about it. If the Londoners are to have any hope of burying their second place curse, they need Petr Cech back to his best before this evening's FA Cup semi-final clash with Arsenal kicks off. Another disastrous...
  4. who's got a job next year ?

    uncertainty abounds for everyone but what footballerrs have a contract at SUFC for next year - I know Adam Barrett has but I can't keep up with all the rest ... anyone got a list ?

    Memory Lane: Postponements

    Reading about the debacle of Tuesday's postponement and the uncertainty surrounding the Swindon game has reminded me of the awful feeling of arriving in a strange town after a long journey to be confronted with the grim news that the game you'd anticipated seeing is... off. I remember driving...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...

    My Take

    on matters at the club are as follows: RM is and always will be a developer. Developers are in business for the sole reason of making serious money on land opportunities - hence this is the only reason he purchased the club. Is this a bad thing? well not necessarily. I for one believe we...
  8. Marlon King joins Middlesbrough ..

    .. on a six month loan, thought Hull were certainty to buy him! Good move by Southgate bringing him to the squad
  9. the transfer market ....

    read the SSN news report posted on here about all the ins and outs in league one - it seems clear that the market is stagnant no-one is moving yet - given James Walker cost us good money an Barney must be on good money how much would you expect Tilson to now have at his disposal to blow...
  10. SUFC - heading in the right direction

    Amidst all the current transfer uncertainty, I'm going to stick my neck out and say I think our club has got a clear idea of where its going. At the end of last season we had a first XI who were good but not quite good enough plus an assortment of fringe players who were either past their best...

    Manchester United

    I don't know if it's the same in Singapore, but here in England there is a strange glint of expectation in the eyes of the Manchester United fans. Every one that I have spoken to is confident, perhaps too confident, of victory in Moscow tonight. It might be that clinching the EPL title has given...
  12. Slipperduke


    You would think that, as the single most important match of their history looms up on the horizon, Chelsea might try to put a lid on the gossip and focus on the football, but nothing is ever that simple at Stamford Bridge. Faced with a choice of either (a) clarifying Avram Grant’s future or (b)...

    South London football boozers

    Right, firstly, I'm a really bad person - I've been certain for ages that we were going to finish 5th and planned around this. Kandol's late goal has ruined everything to the extent that I can't go to either game. Anyway, enough of that. Does anyone know anywhere nearish to Vauxhall where...

    The Power of RC Junior!

    I am starting to realise little RC Junior, now only 4 months old, has extremely strong magical powers!! He has now witnessed 11 games this season, in his short 4 months in this world, and we are yet to taste defeat - including the dramatic late win at Carlisle on Saturday. To back this up...

    The Gunners

    Just occasionally, maybe once a year at most, there comes a football match so beautiful, so intense, so frantic and so scoop-your-jaw-up-off-the-floor exciting, that it's all you can do not to fall to the ground and openly weep in thanks that you were able to watch it. This was an epic struggle...

    Sun Benitez

    Liverpool finally joined up with their compatriots in the last eight of the Champions League on Wednesday morning and sent out an ominous message to the rest of Europe in the process. Inter Milan will complain bitterly about another harsh red card, but the truth is that they have been absolutely...

    Managing Newcastle Isn't A Game

    There is a computer game in existence that, I’m afraid to admit, has cost me around 15 years of my life. It’s called Football Manager and I’ve owned every incarnation of it since 1993. It’s a wonderful way to waste time, it really is. You pick your club, assemble your players, choose a formation...

    Now should we get a bid of 3 mill (unlikely) then obviously it makes sense to let him go.. Same for 2 mill.. but with only a year to go at ahat level does it make sense to keep him and let him go on a free at the end of next season.. Is Freddy scoring the 20 plus goals that gets us promoted...
  19. Leeds - Administration?

    According to breaking news on Radio One (Ok, i know... hardly a reputable source) Leeds could be set announce Administration in the next 7 days. If this is true, the obligatory 10 point would come into effect... How do you think this would have effected our run in had this happened weeks ago...
  20. North End eye witness report

    Well, two goals from Maher and one from the Preston reject, a result that was at no point during the game predictable, yes, the game was enjoyable. Several days of fine sunshine turned to drizzle today in anticipation of my journey to the game. I left home just before two o'clock expecting...
