    I'm sorry Mr Martin

    I was going to post this on the tread about the AGM, asking if anyone going along wanted to say a quick sorry to RM from me. Instead I have just decided to mentioned a slightly embarrasing encounter I had with Mr (and I think Mrs) Martin at the weekend. I was having breakfast in a cafe in...

    After Bradford (A)

    A potentially tricky encounter away at Bradford was made to look anything but that, with midfield maestro Anthony Grant bossing the midfield on his way to a mighty rating of 8.71, his second highest of the season and consequently his second Top Player award. His goalscoring colleague, Barry...

    Sexy Football

    Today brings an encounter which Ruud Gullit would surely describe as "sexy football." It's Brazil v Holland ... this promises to be one beautiful game, though I'd wager that the Dutch would need to go a bit ugly in order to win it. This Brazilian side have combined defensive solidity to their...
  4. Southend VS Aston Villa - CoD MW2

    Looks like it's on. The Villa lads are up for it, so we now need to sort out times/date etc for this epic encounter. If you want in, then say so, and we'll go from there.

    Plodding Snore-fest Is No Reason For Complacency

    Algeria 0-1 Slovenia ENGLAND SHOULDN’T TAKE THESE TWO TEAMS FOR GRANTED An awful game, bereft of class and style, but if England fans think that they can relax, they should think again. There was just enough in this strangely compelling display of mutual ineptitude to concern Fabio...

    World Cup Memories

    Strange as it may seem, I've been reminiscing once again. I was thinking about the England World Cup squad of 1970 and their number one hit, 'Back Home.' There they were on TOTP, all suited in black and wearing white shirts and black ties. We didn't have a colour telly then, so that's how it...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Stockport

    Well, finally and thank god this is the last time we have to visit RH this season! We have about half a dozen injuries, Barrett, JFC and Laurent have probably played their last games of the season at Oldham - OS Maybe those three will never be seen in a Southend shirt again?... I would...

    Barney back on loan and maybe Lambert too for last few games if Saints screw up

    Mate of mine said his Missus knows Alan Pardew and picked up something from him during a recent encounter. Apparently part of the deal for letting Barney go so cheap was that we could get him back on loan if Southampton have nothing to play for over the last few matches. He would also be...

    SZ Battle: BLUEBLOOD vs TrueBlue (Part 3)

    Tonight will see the 3rd match between me and BLUEBLOOD in our 12 month epic match series, the score in the series after 2 games are 1-1 with BLUEBLOOD taking the first spoils in January but then myself striking back after a 10 leg unbeaten run to win in Feb January - BLUEBLOOD February -...
  11. Hands Up Who Paid for That...

    I'll admit it. I paid the full £14 to watch 76 seconds of boxing last night. I was fooled by a Jewish New Yorker who talked a good game, but failed to mark his words with any kind of action. After taking two attempts and a stripping to make the 10 stone weight limit, Dmitriy Salita informed a...

    Nostalgia: it ain't as good as it use to be

    Playing Charlton always seemed to produce a cracking game, so what are your most memorable moments from this fixture over the years? * Winning 3-0 at the Valley. A teenage Leo Roget made his debut, Steve Tilson (whatever happened to him?) scored with his right foot and whilst we are still...
  13. Money Can't Buy You Class

    Money can you buy a lot of things. It can buy you a fast car, a nice house and a beautiful wife. It can buy you the worlds greatest player and, in Manchester City's case, it can buy you an incompetent defence. What money can't buy you, Manuel Pellegrini learnt tonight, is class. El Classico...
  14. The Hand of Frog.

    While you're reading this, Giovanni Trapatoni will be giving his statement to an array of police equipped with notebooks and forensic packs, as one of the greatest robberies of sporting history occurred tonight. No more than three years ago, Thierry Henry lambasted Barcelona for their...

    Working For a ***** Company

    As some of you will know, I work for a Rescue & Recovery Company which is not your average 9-5 sort of job. Most though not all who do this job expect long hours, all weather conditions and sometimes, the very real risk of serious injury or even death. It's the nature of the job (considered in...

    OD - Matchday 7

    Todays encounter sees me taking on the team in 6th place in my division, 1 spot and 4 points below me. The top 4 teams are going to saty as they are so it's results amongst the bottom 4 teams which will determine who goes down automatically and who goes into the play offs. So far I've beaten...
  17. ESB's Champions League Run Down

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...

    Much To Do For United And Chelsea

    Meet the new season, same as the old season. If the starting line-ups looked a little familiar, so too was the mutual loathing shared by these two teams, a festering cauldron of hatred that bubbled up frequently in this surprisingly rumbustious encounter. Wayne Rooney's late strike forced a...

    Spain Stunned By Yanks

    USA 2-0 Spain Altidore 25 Dempsey 73 Last week the American football team could have been forgiven for packing their bags in advance of an early exit. Beaten in a tight encounter with Italy and then thrashed to within an inch of their lives by Brazil, their only hope of qualification was to...
