    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Hull City 3-1 Southend United

    My first game of the season and I was really impressed with our performance and the confidence our players displayed when in possession, despite the fact that Hull fielding a weakened side. Mildy - 5 - I'm afraid he was the one player who didn't earn his money tonight. He had pretty much...

    Cheated Chelsea Lose The Plot

    It was a night that should have been memorable for the beauty of Michael Essien's opening goal, but it is a raging Didier Drogba who will linger in the mind's eye. Furious with the referee's failure to award any one of four possible penalties, he shouted and screamed in his face before being...

    It's only going to get worse...

    ...well it MIGHT do since we have games coming up thick and fast, our team isn't functioning as a unit, we have no quality on the bench to shake things up and so many of our better quality loanees have returned to their clubs (even if in some cases this might not be for too long). We certainly...
