    Wicked Whispers

    Extraordinary scenes at The Emirates this week where journalists in town for the big clash between Arsenal and Liverpool were served up with a little sporting hors deouvre as two respectable, well known British hacks went for each other's throats and had to be seperated by their colleagues. The...

    Arsenal v Liverpool

    Arsene Wenger was left baffled by his team's failure to beat Liverpool in an intruiging contest at The Emirates, but refused to agree that their opponent's away goal made them favourites to progress to the last four. Arsenal certainly had the better of the game, particularly in the second half...

    Manuel Neuer

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...

    Liverpool

    Liverpool won the battle for fourth place more comfortably than their 1-0 scoreline suggested with a confident, accomplished victory that will send them to London on a high. The fact that this mighty club was fighting for such a lowly league position is a searing indictement on this season's...

    Arsene Wenger

    I've seen quite a lot of Arsene Wenger this season. He might look like a geeky Geography teacher on the television, but in the flesh he's actually quite cool. He's tall and trim, he dresses only in expensive suits and when he sits down for his post-match press conference, it's more like an...

    Avram Grant Part 2

    The lone figure on the touchline hunched his shoulders and pulled his long coat closer in the bitterly cold wind. Around him, 40,000 angry supporters howled at him in derision. "You don't know what you're doing!" they roared. "You don't know what you're doing!" The figure remained still, unmoved...

    Title Race Still On

    From the way that Manchester United fans have been celebrating, you’d think that their lead was significantly more than eight goals. Arsenal fans, likewise, have been mooching about the place as if they’ve just been docked ten points for passing the ball too much. It’s not over yet, not by a...

    Sun Benitez

    Liverpool finally joined up with their compatriots in the last eight of the Champions League on Wednesday morning and sent out an ominous message to the rest of Europe in the process. Inter Milan will complain bitterly about another harsh red card, but the truth is that they have been absolutely...

    Hounds of Hell

    I used to get these horrible recurring nightmares when I was a teenager. It was every single evening and it was absolutely terrifying. I’d drift off and be transported to a cold, dark forest where I was being chased by a pack of dogs. The dogs were so real and no matter how fast I ran, I could...

    Anyone in the know that could help??

    Its my girlfriend's 21st birthday on the 30th of March, now she is currently (trying to sway her to the real side) an Arsenal fan. (Although she is coming to some Southend games so should be able to convert ;) ) And for her birthday I wanted to try and get tickets to go see Arsenal at the...

    Arsenal rue missed chances

    How can two goalless draws be so different? Chelsea’s blank with Olympiakos on Wednesday morning was so desperately dull that it could have come straight from Dante’s sixth circle. This, though, was so different. Still no goals to write about, but it was never anything less than pulsating. Only...

    Liverpool Not Out Yet

    Liverpool fans must be feeling numb by now. There's only so much bad news you can take before you end up rocking backwards and forwards in the corner of the room, dribbling on your shoes and the weekend defeat to Barnsley was the final straw for most long-suffering Reds. Never has there been...

    Nothing Yet For Keegan

    Newcastle’s worrying, barren run under Kevin Keegan stretched to its third game on Wednesday morning when they were beaten for the second time in four days by Arsenal. Once again, the Magpies came to play football and once again they were ruthlessly punished for their audacity. Most managers...
  14. What would you prefer . . . .

    A. Beating Dagenham and Redbridge tommorow 3-0 to get Arsenal in the next round at the Emirates and lose 4-0. However not get promoted B.Drawing against Dagenham tommorow and then losing at their gaff but get to the Play Off Final. Myself I'd go for B. I think Dave Kitson is a tosser for...

    Updates from the OS...

    Well, reading Tilson on the OS today makes it pretty darn clear that that's the last we've seen of Leon Clarke: OS: Tilson Hopeful Over Signings Meanwhile, Tilson also commented on the Leon Clarke situation. The former loanee has returned to Wednesday after his loan spell expired and Tilson...

    ****nal youth

    Went to see ****nal youth team last night, as they were playing at the Emirates, and it was an easy opportunity to cross that ground off the list. Now, seeing as usually they would play their games on a field at ****nals training ground, but as the first team are away in Holland, they were...

    Wigan

    Is anyone fed up with Paul Jewell blaming the ref for the defeat at the Emirates? Why not blame his star player Emile Heskey. Heskey earns probably 10 times more than Dowd but missed two simple chances to put his team 2 up, but instead Jewell slags off the ref. Wouldnt it have been refreshing to...

    ****nal and official attendances etc

    Watched the ****nal game and a bit confused as per usual with gates. I mean they say that the emirates holds 60,000 , but todays attendance was 60,049 and there were loads of empty seats maybe as many as 5-10,000. Kinda the same for us when they say its a full house yet there are some seats...
  20. An Excellent Warm Up Game – Spurs V SUFC - The Shrimper Truth.

    The Shrimper Truth. – match report and player ratings. It showed excellent spirit for SUFC to agree to play Spurs and the goodhearted Shrimper hordes again poured much needed cash into the (hopeless) attempt to regenerate this desolate patch of depressing north London. The local football club...
