    Just a little bit of SUFC history

    Southend United played at the Stadium 1934 to 1955, but the greyhounds are long gone and the ground demolished and now is the site of the Greyhound Retail park off of Sutton Road. It is now the home of Bingo, Iceland, KFC etc and nothing left of the old ground. The most southerly shop in the...

    The Kids Are More Than Alright

    Arsene Wenger stared down his inquisitor and smiled. Just half an hour after his young Arsenal side had demolished Sheffield United by six goals, the old quote, "You can't win anything with kids," had been offered up to him. "These players," he said levellely, "do not play like kids." They...
