  1. Those 1st Round Cup Exits

    So now we are just one win away from promotion what are everyone's views of those 1st round cup exits now?? I remember many people on SZ saying how bad it was and the lack of additional revenue to the club would be missed etc! Whilst that might have been true I'm sure with hindsight we would...

    League two-Half term report Blogger's diary

    http://gu.com/p/349g3 <Southend United How's it going? Two weeks ago, all was rosy at Southend United. The Shrimpers were top of League Two, unbeaten in 17 matches and still in both the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and the FA Cup. Fans were dreaming of a Wembley final and, after a favourable FA...
  3. Will reinforcements mean many departures?

    Paul Sturrock has hinted on BBC Essex after the Bradford game that up to 3 or 4 players will be signed up in the January window. I'm led to believe we're running right on the budget wage cap so as a result how many players can you see leaving to make way for them? For me there may be one or...
  4. Costly Clauses Mount Up For Pompey

    It must be difficult supporting Portsmouth. It wasn’t so long ago you were walking Wembley Way triumphantly. Of course, it wasn’t so long ago that Portsmouth main goal was surviving in the Premier League… Now, you’re flinging England’s number 1 around like a QPR caretaker manager because...

    City Must Be Patient

    There's no doubt about the identity of this weekend's biggest fixture, is there? It is, as we have said many times already this campaign, 'a big weekend for Rafa Benitez'. Mind you, it's an even bigger one for Mark Hughes. After splashing more money than Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney...

    Arsenal's Better Half

    Ask a new convert to Arsenal what the club's greatest weakness is and you'll get a variety of answers. You might hear that the players are too young, or that there's no cover in defensive midfield, or even that Nicklas Bendtner is a lumbering oaf incapable of even the simplest of motor skills...

    Well, that b*ggered up the first draft...

    Extraordinary. Just when you think that you've got the measure of this ridiculous sport, along comes a game so remarkable, so unexpected and so astonishing that you need to sit down and take a deep breath before you can even start to make sense of it all. Tottenham Hotspur's impetuous comeback...
  8. Thuggish behavour

    In the coach after the game alongside us was a Dad and his two sons. Now when the Dad wasn't looking his son who must have been about 8 at most started making gestures at the coach, everybody just laughed. Suddenly the dad starts making "come on then" gestures at the coach like some wannabe...
  9. Something doesn't feel right

    Maybe this is just me but there is something that is bothering me about this - Nicky Bailey, i can understand rejecting the new contract. He did a very simialr thing while at Barnet (even admitted "sulking") but Peter Clarke and Franny both seem good lads who wouldnt try and hold the club to...

    And the moral of the story is....

    Dont leave before the final whistle, late goals home goals I can think of this year 1. Mark Gower vs Norwich 2. Lewis Hunt vs Brighton 3. Kevin Maher (2) vs QPR 4. Alan McCormack vs Leicester 5. Richie Foran vs Burnley From my vantage point in the East a few hundred had made there way to the...

    Newcastle United

    I have to say it was wonderful last night to see Newcastle United and their fat oaf of a chairman dumped unceramoniously out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle. As for the so-called "best, most loyal fans in world football - © any mouthy Geordie since year dot", again they covered themselves in...

    The Boxer Rebellion

    I just wanted to say I&#39;ve now managed to get hold of a copy of The Boxer Rebellion&#39;s album &quot;Exits&quot; and it is an absolute blinder. Seeing as we have their drummer on here as a regular poster, I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who&#39;s a bit of a music freak. Got to be...
