    Anton Ferdinand

    Hardly a game passes without Anton looking off the pace, out of position, caught for speed, you name it, he's been accused of it this season. On his day (which was most of last season) he was a 'class above' defender who used his experience and AdamThompson to counter his lack of pace. This...

    Goal of the Season

    With the end of season awards coming up, we need to think about our best goal, and I always have difficulty remembering the best ones. I had a bit of a trawl through, and there's Simon Cox's 2nd goal at home to AFC Wimbledon, Woody and Fortuné both scored a lovely one away at Peterborough, and...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-2 MK Dons

    A stutter in the run up, still 6 points to play for and on paper we have the easier run than Millwall. I'm trying to think positively!! :thumbsup: For those of you who were there what went wrong?

    Fixtures at the start of this season

    Just looking at the table and I can't believe how tough a start we have had to the season in terms of the fixture list. I know its still quite early to look at the table but...... We have played 7 of the top 9 away from home. We have played 9 of the top 10. We have only played 1 of the...
  6. Our away form

    I believe after next week when SUFC travel to Bradford, that will make it 6 out of the top 7 we have played away from home , please feel free to correct me should i be wrong.I realise that we have only scored in two of those matches,but i figure we must have some easier away matches ( if there...

    Previous Player Syndrome

    So, is this happening because it's easier to sell to a player the idea of a switch to a club where he has already been as opposed to somewhere completely new? Thoughts?

    Run Fat Boy Run - 'Running'.

    Im 46, until I was 30 I weighed under 9 stone, couldnt put an ounce on. Then my 30's came and now Ive peaked at 13 stone. Lost a stone a year or so go using slim plan but have put it back on, mainly because I now work from home most days so dont get any excercise whatsoever. As I was so thin...
  9. Tips for Sp to in-play running prices.

    In response to another poster I will post some racing tips for in-play betting. These are likely to drop from their SP whilst the race is being run. I use betfair, though with other trading software as it make it easier to "green up" across the whole field. So here are a few for today. 13:50...
  10. The GERMAN DREAM is still on

    The German dream is still on...... No its not the dream of world domination,they have that with German exports,its not ruling Europe,because they do that already(with a little help from France)...Its not my dream,of a hattrick...was at München 5-1,then Berlin 2-1,and will be there again at...

    Food waste

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-34647454 gave this a read through and actually find it disgusting that so much good food is wasted year on year, with the gap between classes continually widening, I for one would not have any problem for paying for these as I find it hard enough to feed my...

    Next 4 games are rather tough

    Well, it doesn't get an easier - I'm liking this league and am so glad not to be playing Morecambe (they have scored 28 goals this season compared with our 14 :stunned:). Away at Chesterfield (who just beat Walsall away) Away at league leaders Gillingham (who have a 6x better goal difference)...

    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...
  14. Southend United season stats

    Hi all, The past couple of seasons I've run the 'season snake' and the 'final position predictor'. These are only interesting towards the end of the season but I'm going to start collecting stats from the very start of the season (so it's easier to manage and automate). If there are other...

    The East Stand

    Am reading the recently published book '56', the story of the Bradford fire. A truely horrific event and re-watching the news reels on it on Youtube is a heart-rending experience. That old Bradford stand was a relic from the past and was hosting its last match that day in 1985. Now, I am sure...

    Multimedia websites

    Am I just being curmudgeonly in disliking the new look cricinfo web-site with its "multimedia" focus? Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all against highlight reels showing actual sporting action appearing on web-sites, or illustrating written articles with photographs, diagrams and the like. It's...
  17. Mad Cyril


    Is anyone else doing this? I decided to stop the couple of glasses of wine of an evening and it has been a lot easier than I thought. I haven't lost any weight yet but I seem to have more energy, concentration levels are up and it is a lot easier to avoid the subsidised breakfasts at work...
  18. England & Wembley

    Interesting article here suggesting that the FA should sell Wembley. Easier said than done, for sure. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/england/11070715/England-v-Norway-FA-should-sell-Wembley-its-ruinously-expensive-beacon-of-failure.html

    As per new scoreboard thread, did you find it easier to read from parts of the ground?
  20. Football transfer to change?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25418135 Legal challenge has been made to end transfer fees. This means that contracts will literally be worthless and in theory and player can say "I'm off now", pay up his contract (or have his future club do that) and leave. I'm failing to see the point...
