    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows.

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows. No sweeping advertising campaigns and no collectable badges. Here in the UK, you wouldn't guess that we're just hours away from the start of a major football tournament. Ok, so the nearest that the England team can get to European involvement...

    The battle for survival

    The only excitement that comes close to the battle for the Premier League is the fight to merely stay in it for another season. The financial rewards of the top flight are now so vast that relegation is no longer an occupational hazard that can be thrown off with one straight-forward recovery...

    The Blue Voice: Destination Championship

    Manchester United v Barcelona part 2

    When he looks back on this game, Cristiano Ronaldo’s only consolation will be that at least John Arne Riise’s mistake was worse. Not many gifts get handed out at the Camp Nou, but Gabriel Milito’s decision to wave his hands in front of a second minute corner like a man trying to shake off the...

    Ahead of this weekends final taking place on Sunday (2.30 ko) at Burroughs Park (home of Great Wakering FC), it's time to take a look at the squad which helped the Zone achieve promotion in record time, and which now have their sights set on lifting the famous Andy Ward Section G Trophy. It...

    Trouble In Merseyside

    They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but with momentum growing at both ends of Stanley Park, it looks like now might be a good time to run for cover. Everton are more than capable of finishing fourth and, at the same time, no-one would be surprised if Liverpool snaffled a sixth European...

    Nicky Bailey.

    Right, I didn't go last night, and want to keep away from the doom and gloom of the result and apparent performance. But remember we are 4 points off the play off with a game in hand. Anyways, onto the subject. How good is Nicky Bailey. The boy impresses me even more everytime I see him. No...
  8. Padova, am I the only one?

    Admittedly it was a pretty sparse crowd that night, but am I the only one who looks back on the second half of that game and remembers one of the greatest Blues' displays of all time? Fry had left us, and local hero Spud had taken his place, a 3-0 home defeat to WBA was a terrible injustice, but...

    Dr Ramos' Football Surgery

    For Tottenham Hotspur, the last four months have been like one of those celebrity makeover programmes on the television. Tottenham trudged into Dr Ramos’ Football Surgery back in October looking overweight, haggard and drawn. Now, after weeks of detailed appraisal and then a flurry of cutting...

    SUFC v Barnsley Ratings

    Flavs 6 not too much to do Hunt 6 let JCR mug him for the goal but generally ok Clarke 6 looked solid with Barrett for a change but usual woeful distribution Barrett 7 good all round performance, a relief after...

    The fbm report - Bristol Rovers

    Neither myself or Matt have had the chance to upload this yet, so I'm putting it on the forum for the moment. BLUES CLUELESS AS ROVERS RETURN WITH POINTS Southend produced one of the worst displays in recent times as they slumped to yet another home defeat – this time to a lowly and very...

    Leon Clarke

    THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES ON.... Let's face it. He isn't very good. In fact he is dog lazy. His attitude stinks. His body language is that of a man who'd rather be elsewhere. After a promising beginning v Gillingham, he has gone downhill. Whilst he was scoring goals, no one moaned. Well you...
  13. the Shrimper truth - nasty northerners get away with it

    as Sheridan told his website - "the lads did the ugly things and battled well" and said it was Crossleys best performance yet. And the skipper praised this fans while Roots Hall sat on its hands while Oldham took two minutes over every goal kick and throw in and the ref was a cricket umpire who...

    TrueBlue - New SUFC Ultra's Group..

    Whilst watching the Besiktas V Liverpool game on Wednesday night, it amazed me how much colour and noise the Besiktas Ultra's created.. So it got me thinking.. We should create our own group of Ultra's, to help improve the atmosphere when we move to Fossetts Farm. My idea's/thoughts are as...

  20. Liverpool

    Class Apart. I'm sorry, but thats one of the finest team displays i've seen in a very, very long time... And without their iconic captain consisting of several players who havent settled fully yet. The smart money is on them to win the title this year.
