    playing devils advocate

    Playing devils advocate about our current goal drought. Maybe we have a management team which hasnt got the nous to give the team creativity in the final 3rd. Is it possible that we we need is a striker coach to come in and start working on improving our play in the final third and in...

  4. Question When is the act of killing children 'evil' and when is it not?

    Do you think that it is interesting how certain events result in a violent public reaction compared to others? For instance when you break it down Philpott killed 6 children by accident in an attempt to achieve his goals. He is rightly found guilty of manslaughter. There is public outrage...

    Question What if.........................we get promoted?

    Can we afford it? The back bone of a new squad would be required on higher wages that we may not be able to afford. Would the crowd increase significantly thus bringing in the revenue? Could we afford to wait an extra year whilst the new ground gets built? Now I admit my finger isnt on...

    Devils Advocate..

    Whilst confident in Luggy and the lads...what if?? We draw or, god forbid, lose the re-arranged game at that park with a pitch. Miss out on promotion by...say 1 point? Having been 1-0 up, Shots down to 10 and struggling?? Yet Aldershot Town were unable to complete a football match on the due...

    A Poke In The Eye

    For the big four and the devils, courtesy of Everton FC. Let me be the first to say: HA!

    All time greatest results?

    When , by around Weds 7th Jan, all the excitement and amazement of the 1-1 at Chelsea has subsided a tad, think on this:...Was this our greatest ever result? The obvious comparison will be against Man Utd at home, but I'll say todays outcome was superior because: Chelsea's home form is so very...

    Marmite - Yummy or Scummy? You decide.

    After reading the hijacking of the 'No more blah blah blah jokes' thread it got me thinking. Where do you sit on the whole Marmite issue. Is it the best thing since Farley's Rusks or the Devils spread that should be avoided at every turn? For all those that like me love the stuff you should...

    The Grand Slam

    The tension that has been slowly building all week is now approaching critical mass. The clock is ticking down to Grand Slam Sunday and the mind games have begun in earnest. This is what football is all about and I love it. Mind you, I don’t support one of the big four, so I can settle back and...

    What's the real reason?

    Todays defeat hurt. Not because it was against Col U, although there are no doubt some on here that think that if we only won 2 games all season as long as they were against Col U then that would be ok. It hurt because of the stage of the season we are at and the importance of those three...

    The fbm view and ratings

    AGAINST ALL ODDS Years ago, when Southend were regularly plumbing the depths of the division now known as league 2, I used to get some funny looks when people found out I was a season ticket holder at Roots Hall.  “What on earth for?” they used to quip, “Surely you must play ‘Spot the Crowd’...
