    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...

    U18's Thrash Col Ewe

    U18's have just thrashed Col Ewe 5 - 1 at Boots & Laces :clap: 4 - 0 at half time and could of been 7 or 8 if it wasn't for their keeper. SUFC took their foot of the gas for the 2nd half. An enjoyable game to watch.

    My last nights meal was a farce !!!

    Wednesday nights I play football down at a college in Portslade which is 7.30-8.30 - Really enjoyable and helps to keep me fit. Mrs DtS and I have a sort of unwritten agreement that I call her as I am leaving the pitch and she starts my evening meal. Recent efforts have included Chicken...

    Who's jealous of Darryl Flahavan, step forward now!

    So many Flavs knocking threads on here, can only think that it is jealousy from the keyboard warriors 1. Is it cause he's got a more enjoyable, better paid job than you? 2. Is it cause he's good looking and you are ugly? 3. Is it cause he's got a better looking girlfriend/wife than you...

    Back from Gresty....

    ... and what a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon it was too! I thought the first half performance was the best 45 minutes football Southend have played for a long, long time... certainly the best this season. They were 1st to every ball, never allowed Crewe a second on the ball, were a yard...

    Magnum and Others Ratings

    Flahavan - 6 (didnt have a lot to do and looked a bit at sea at times in the second half with the wind. kicking a bit wayward) Mulgrew - 7 (got roasted for the penalty but a little unfortunate. his delivery from free-kicks is sensational leading to the goal) Francis - 8 (definitely getting...

    Todays Game & Blue Voice

    Not to sure what to make of today. Poor 1st half with their 5 in midfield stiffling our play and we didn't adapt. daggers were easily the better side 2nd half totally different and we were the better side. We upped the tempo and seemed to deal with thier midfield better. Morgan was a class...

    Question about away games.

    Does any one find it enjoyable going to games in places that they have been to many different times over the years? Was going through my collection the other day and it appears that I have been to Orient 5 times. Happy with that, but when you find out you have been to Mansfield 4 times, Bristol...

    Well done Tilly, Wiggy's ratings!

    What a nice surprise to see that Tilson had abandoned the Maher is an automatic choice and let's give Matt Harrold yet another chance to prove he has got any ability as a footballer as the team was read out. Rating's as follows.... Collis 6 very little to do but am now more convinced than ever...

    Well done India

    For beating Pakistan in the final. Really enjoyable game in a brilliant competition. Much better than that 3 month long (I know it wasnt that long, it just felt like it) World Cup in the Windies earlier in the year.
