  1. Frustrated

    Tilly will always have my utmost respect for the fantastic job he has done at Southend United, I love the guy - he's a legend. I'd also love to see him stay here for many, many years to come, it would take an awful lot for my feelings to change on that score. However I'm frustrated at the...
  2. Surviving Scudamore

    When Richard Scudamore announced the new home-grown quota system that will come into place for the start of the 2010/11 campaign, you could almost hear the penny drop in boardrooms across the country. From August 2010, a Premier League club will have it's squad capped at 25 players, containing...

    Anyone remember Francis's faking injury

    people always say what would we be like if we had a plyer who dived to get a pen or whatever how would we feel. well not exactly the same but who saw francis go down like he had been hit by a rocket then seconds later jump straight back up after their player said something to him. imo dirty...
  4. Get a Grip!

    Yesterday's performance was dire. I've not been able to make some of the much better games recently so if anyone should be complaining about how rubbish we must be it would be me. What I couldn't understand from some of the fans yesterday and having just seen some of the posts on here is some...
  5. County's Web of Lies About to Unravell

    Just as the Notts County faithful were beginning to come to terms with their new found regality and success, it turns out Sol Campbell's departure might just be the tip of the iceberg that sinks them. Rumours are rife that the Football League aren't happy with the information disclosed by the...

    Tilsons iPod speculation.

    Has anyone speculated as to exactly what is on Steve Tilson's iPod? I reckon it is about 85% 80's soul. The remaining 15% is old skool Balearic to remind him of Webb era changing rooms and Anglo-Italian cup fixtures.

    Papal Visit

    So the Pope is on his way over for 2010... should be a good day out :) "Benny is a shrimper" sung by a bunch of kids from Chelmsford lead by their teacher at Wembley Stadium will make the news ;) I do wonder exactly how big an event this will be, I recon bigger than lots of peeps would at...
  8. Leeds fans in the home end -

    2 years ago in block V or W I was celebrating our goal when | noticed the two big fellas sat in front of me were sat still looking fed up - I admit from there on I did enjoy a bit of goading - (what would Revie say - not exactly Billy Bremner is he etc) but they took it all in a surly quiet...

    Just how bad are things really?

    This isn't intended as a rose tinted post and I am certainly not seeing all things as sunshine and flowers as someone suggested on another thread. But at times like this it is very easy to be swept along on a bandwagon of fear and despair, with an awful lot of statements being made that are...

  11. Green Street Erupts, And Not a Hobbit In Sight

    Scenes that would make your casual hobbit masquerading as a hooligan squeal were on show tonight, as West Ham entertained Millwall in more ways than one. It was the draw that made half of East London wince and the other half salivate, the draw that made the Metropolitan Police kicked into...

    Words of encouragement

    Not exactly Chelsea but it's a big game in itself. Post them here and i'll e-mail them to Southend tommorow noon. Might get to them a bit late but it's a chance to show your passion even in "smaller" games like this.

    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...

    The Season's Most Definitive Preview

    All summer long I've been dreading this moment. The time when I have to stop procrastinating, stop talking myself into corners and finally sit down to write my annual predictions preview of the season. No word of a lie, I've been struggling with this all summer. I've never known a season to be...

    England Not That Good

    Never let it be said that England's footballers are selfish divas, unwilling to lift a finger to help others. In Amsterdam, in front of 50,000 witnesses, these much-maligned millionaires generously donated two goals to their Dutch opponents, an act of charity that they'd prefer went entirely...
