    Bafana Bafana Give Me The Horn

    South Africa 0-0 Iraq The nation of South Africa is ready for the World Cup but sadly it seems that their football team are still lagging behind. Ellis Park, a stadium better known for its connections to rugby, played host to a most disappointing game of football, but it didn't dampen the...

    Long Way To Go

    There's a long way to go yet. After an almost flawless first year in charge, Fabio Capello was brought crashing down to earth in Seville by a breath-taking Spanish side who taught him a hard lesson in what it takes to win international honours. England kept pace with the European Champions for...

    Problems Mount Up For Rafa

    Where's the firepower now? Selling an unwanted Robbie Keane may have been embarrassing, but it was at least understandable. Not replacing him though? That could be a disaster. Liverpool are out of the FA Cup, but what about the league? As Fernando Torres limped away after 101 minutes of a...

    So, we're now past the half-way mark and i was wondering what people felt about the season so far. If i'm honest it's be disastrous, we've won once in 11 games, simply nto good enough for a supposed promotion chasing side. We're miles behind Scunthorpe, MK Dons and Leicester. We just don't...

    They Haunted the Os:

    #2 - Richard Cadette When we take an Orient retrospective from the early to late 1980s you can't help but be overcome with a sense of complete and utter misery. While the nation was tearing itself apart over the miner'sstrike the dear old Os were busy getting themselves relegated to Division...

    Back In Business

    The roar, when the whistle finally came, was loud enough to shake the stadium to its foundations. A late Rafael strike and six minutes of injury time almost proved too much for the Arsenal fans who were in anguish at the prospect of another late capitulation, clutching their heads in their...

    Gunners Fire Blanks

    How Arsenal could have done with a win here. With two disastrous results behind them and a foreboding clash with Manchester United waiting on Saturday, this was a perfect opportunity to boost morale, on and off the pitch, but it wasn't to be. Fenerbahce, much improved from their humiliating...

    Battle Of The Tools - Prelim 1

    Kicking off the Battle Of The Tools 2008 Competition is this interesting encounter between Essex boy Jamie Oliver (Mr B) and Saaf London lass Jade Goody (Jonny S) . I fear this one might be a landslide towards the Beast Of Bermondsey but the SZ public will have to decide that one. Just click...

    Shambles at St James

    Kevin Keegan has gone, Mike Ashley is going and the Toon Army can no longer be relied upon to fund the senseless destruction of their football team. Newcastle United are in meltdown, slumped near the bottom of the Premier League and now, thanks to this lacklustre defeat at the hands of...
  10. Hereford and Crewe are massive !!

    these 2 games in my view are simply huge for the lads,we must be looking for at least 4 pts with 6pts being very tasty indeed. 1st up is the hereford encounter this is really a must win game anything less than 3pts will be a proper kick in the nuts and will surely kill the lads confidence...

    Zone Update TBTV - Big Issue Exclusive

    After all the arguing and the general bad mood I thought I would try and liven things up by sticking up just a short exclusive from after the Walsall game outside Birmingham station where I encounter a big issue seller. http://www.truebluetv.co.uk/latest_videos.php other videos can be seen in...

    The Blue Voice Programme Article - Tonight

    For those of you that do not buy the programme tonight, here is a little piece from TBV. Good evening everyone and welcome to our encounter with Brighton. Friday night football is back at The Hall and it always seems to help with the atmosphere. I don’t know what it is about Friday football...

    Car Accidents/Near Misses

    After reading Winkles itchy bum thread and his close encounter with unsuspecting users of the footpath, it reminded me of an encounter i had 2 weeks ago whilst driving, where a bumble bee decided to fly in through my window and investigate my right ear whilst i was doing about 60 on a country...

    Workers Compensation

    I so hope this is true!! This is a bricklayer's accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the Australian equivalent of the Workers' Compensation Board... Dear Sir, I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I...

    The Reality

    Last night was a great game of football, and for a 0-0 draw a nervous but exciting encounter. But for me it was clear to see that doncaster were a very well organised, footballing side. There touch, passing and movement was top notch for this division. And whenever they attacked, or passed the...

    STILL ALL TO PLAY FOR IN SEASIDE STALEMATE Southend will have an uphill task if they are to make Wembley in the play offs this year as an impressive Doncaster outfit held the divisions form team to a goalless draw at Roots Hall this evening. The stadium had a fantatsic atmosphere this...

    Portvale prediction and crowd...

    Well port vale are the visitors saturday and having already been relegated and with us already in the play-offs could prove an unusual encounter. Will Tilly play a full first team? Will vale try to go out all guns blazing? Personally think tilly will play more or less a full team with the...

    Chelsea into the final.

    When Petr Cech acrobatically tipped Steven Gerrard's late shot over the bar, he prevented Chelsea from having to win their second leg 3-0 in order to progress to the Final. When John Arne Riise stooped to head past Pepe Reina, he left the London side needing just a goalless draw to book their...

    Meeting with Uncle Ron - Part Three

    Myself and Cricko had a meeting with Ron Martin, Garry Adamson and Paul Fitzgerald from the Shrimpers Trust, prior to this evenings encounter. It was agreed by all parties that TBV and The Trust need to work together more to drive TBV and indeed the Trust campaigns forward. So from now on TBV...
