    The Ashes 2013

    Sooooo, anyone care to speculate on the biggest sporting event of the year? England massive favorites on Betfair. I wonder if it will play that way.....Maybe I (along with others) am being paranoid what with it being Australia. You never know what they'll produce. Michael Clarkes form has...
  2. Mrs Brown's Boys: Your opinion?

    Simple, is it dreadful stuff from the bad old days of the 1970's or a comedic gem from the heart of a comedy star. Thoughts? Personally I am bemused about all the plaudits it's getting - Irish bloke it drag who swears a lot. The peerless Father Ted it ain't.
  3. Ref Watch ....... Friday night refwatch - Chesterfield

    The return of Friday night football sees Rob Lewis making the unnecessarily long journey from Shrewsbury for his third visit to Roots Hall as a referee. This is the third season of his second spell as a League referee, having lost his place in 2008 primarily due to injury. One of our shorter...
  4. Ref Watch ...... Cup Replay Bury

    The referee for tonight's match is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. In his fifth season as a Football League referee, he has only refereed Southend four times before. First was the dreadful match (until the last minute anyway) at Leyton Orient in 2008/9. He...
  5. Football's never coming home....

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/dec/06/euro-2020-across-europe-uefa Absolutely dreadful idea that will leave this tournament stone cold dead. Who can fund travelling to 5/6/7 countries to watch one tournament? Oops picked wrong header. Sorry ESB!
  6. Ref Watch .... Magic of the Cup Refwatch

    Man in charge of our 1,500th game at Roots Hall is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his fourteenth Southend match in charge...
  7. Ref Watch ......... Exeter home

    Just when we can do without any suspensions, they send Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his thirteenth Southend match in...
  8. Ref Watch ...... Oxford away

    The referee for tomorrow's match is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. In his fifth season as a Football League referee, he has only refereed Southend three times before. First was the dreadful match (until the last minute anyway) at Leyton Orient in 2008/9. He...

    We Didn't Start the Fire

    Partly inspired by Kevin Hogg's Despite... thread he is my Southend United version of Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire: Arthur Rowley, Gary Moore, Billy Best sure to score Trevor Roberts RIP, Albeson and Moody Peter Taylor, Chris Guthrie, Ken Foggo, Bellotti Terry Nicholl, Andy Ford, Bill...
  10. Hall and Martin

    So once again "cluniemore" fails to start with both. No creativity. No hope. If the players don't care then I'm beginning to question why I should. Dreadful football, no passion, no fight - nothing. Looking forward to another season in this awful division.

    Creepy Crawley v Stoke

    Dreadful dreadful game so far, only matched by the pathetic display of referee Mike Jones .. firstly he sent off Rory Delap for a sliding tackle (though saw fit to ignore the fact the fat fella came on the pitch to remonstrate) then to even things up he gave Stoke one of the softest penalties...
  12. Ref Watch ...... Rotherham

    Weather and pitch permitting, the man in charge tomorrow evening is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 8th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. He did absolutely no games at all the season before last which would...
  13. Ref Watch ......... Swindon

    The referee for tonight's big match is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. In his fourth season as a Football League referee, he has only refereed Southend twice before. First was the dreadful match (until the last minute anyway) at Leyton Orient in 2008/9. He...
  14. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

    Another performance at home against a poor side full of poor quality and plenty of dreadful hoofball

    OD - Week 6

    The Spankers v ShrimperZone CC 5th v 6th but I'm on a dreadful run of 5 straight defeats. Desperately need a win to get the morale out of it's slump ahead of FC next week. Won the toss and a decent start in sunny conditions, though we just dropped their star batsman. End of Over 8: 22-1...
  16. Mindless fans abusing players

    At the end of the Cheltenham game yesterday there was a small number of fans just putting the knife into Liam Dickenson. I think everyone in agreement it was a dreadful performance yesterday but the whole team had a poor game. Dickenson certainly did not deserve to be the only player singled out...
  17. Ref Watch ..... Bristol Rovers

    I'm glad I didn't do this yesterday; the referee has been changed from the original appointment of David Coote (who looked a little out of his depth in the admittedly not easy home match against Stevenage which gave him his first ever red card). So instead of one full-time FA employee, it's...

    World Athletics Championships

    WTF is this doing on Channel 4? Has the Beeb lost this because of cost cutting? The presenter is dreadful, I'm pining for Sue Barker and John Invedale already. I probably wouldn't have watched it but the women's marathon has already taken place and they've given about 2 minutes "highlights", the...
  19. Ref Watch ..... Port Vale away

    Saturday's referee is Rob Shoebridge from Ripley, Derbyshire, in his 6th season as a Football League referee. His career seemed to be developing nicely until a couple of years ago when he was responsible for one of the worst decisions in the history of refereeing - right up there with Attwell's...

    Rebecca Black - oh dear...

    Don't know if this has been mentioned yet in here, but there is currently an absolutely dreadful song doing the rounds. Auto-tuned to hell, rumours are this girl has a rich dad who paid quite a bit of money for her to get this produced. Lyrics are so bad, it is beyond a joke! And in an...
