  1. England Women WC qualifiers

    For those who follow our ladies exploits, it's their second group match tonight v Bosnia and Herzegovina (at Walsall) and live on BBC2 k/o 7.05pm
  2. Talent is not enough.

    Over the years of supporting the Blues I have seen such potential in certain players and am dismayed at how often it is lost or even thrown away. You can have the silky skills of a Gascoigne/Brooking or the 100% commitment and dedication of a Keegan or Batty. Often though, however you play, your...

    Pre-Match Thread Dagenham vs Southend United

    Looking ahead to Tuesday and the state of our pitch and others in league two, and the up and coming weather, does anyone think the game is in danger, I'm thinking there is a strong possibility. Don't recall their pitch being that great in the past.

    Form of the 6 title contenders

    Just been looking at the recent form of the 5 teams at the top, and I would be staggered if some of them continue in the same vein. Southend 4 wins 2 draws and 3 defeats from the last 9 games, which is 14 points (which really isn't that shabby!). This did include a run of 4 without a win, so...

    Southends secret FA Cup game yesterday

    A quote from the Sun online today: 'CHELTENHAM took advantage of Southend and Crawley's FA Cup exploits to climb to the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Macclesfield.' Now exactly what were our FA Cup exploits yesterday? :unsure:

    PL Weekly Points Points for Round 10

    Down to earth with a bump for many of us after the weekend exploits, but some decent points were still to be had with Dave to the fore ahead of Steve, Ritchie and last years champion Daniel, at the other end of things there were a quartet of ducks, including PL veterans Kristof and Shrimpersarmy...
  7. Rivaldo

    I've just been reading about the recent exploits of the brilliant Brazilian, and former Barcelona star, Rivaldo. I couldn't find any mention of this on here so thought I'd start a thread although you may all have heard about this. Anyway, having retired as a player he returned to Brazil last...

    Now I Know What the Helmets For.

    Since joining my new company things have moved along in the recovery world for me. My gaffer is one of these chaps who wont ask you to do something he wouldn't or couldn't do himself which is in sharp contrast to the last lot. He loaths paperwork and if the true is told, sitting in his office...
  10. Memory Lane Southend Memories

    Some interesting stuff on this site http://www.southendtimeline.com/1970s.htm, bringing back memories of the town and some of S.U.F.C. exploits. Click on 1976 and some of us oldies will remember the Southend group Whisky Mac that won the New Faces talent show on T.V. that used to play at a...

    Rangers hold the key to future Scottish European exploits

    Kaunas is a word that reminds Rangers of a bad time, a one time lacklustre performance in Europe against FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the Second Qualifying round in the 2009/10 UEFA Cup season. Celtic also now have a word that instils disappointment and memories of what could've been. FC Utrecht...

    Paul Scholes

    Is it me, or is Paul Scholes getting better and better with age? Last night, and the community shield, we got to see the full array of Scholes passing range, weighed in with a few of his tackling exploits. Its such a shame he retired from International football when he did, as he is much, much...

  14. Blackpool Must Remain Frugal While Aboard the Gravy Train

    The moment that the seasoned Brett Ormerod poked home Blackpool’s winner against Cardiff City in the 43rd minute will no doubt go down in the history of the club and town, but it stands to reason that the club now has an important decision to make in its history. Ian Holloway, the charismatic...
  15. Pound for Pound King Mayweather Reigns Blows Over Molesley

    The American public have never taken to the showboating arrogance of Floyd Mayweather Junior, so much so that they tend to cheer for his opponent... Such was the magnitude of his performance, the watching audience couldn't help but cheer Pretty Boy Floyd resoundingly. In the build-up, much was...

    Cheryl Cole. Grrrr.

    There are a million and one reasons to dislike Cheryl Cole. There’s her colour, for starters, a curious orangey glow that smacks of either too much Sunny Delight or too many quid-a-minute South Shields tanning salons. There’s her husband, the odious little skraeling who earns more money in the...

    Bringing on spencer and paterson

    Rather than wallowing about in the misery brought about by yesterday's performance, I thought it may be more interesting to discuss the development of the two new young strikers we now have on board. In Tilly's, Wycombe, pre-match preview on 'Player' there was a moment of near total...
  18. Five Star Pac Man Reigns Supreme.

    If ever there was any doubt regarding Manny Pacquiao's claim to the pound-for-pound crown, it was swept away with a simply stunning performance last night. The Phillipino, dubbed Pac Man, stormed to a win over the supremely talented Miguel Cotto and, in doing so, claimed his fifth world title...

    It's A Yeung Man's Game

    Carson Yeung's imminent takeover of Birmingham City is a watershed moment for English football. For the first time in history, half of the Premier League is in the hands of overseas investors. Ten clubs, ten multi-millionaire owners, but does Yeung really have a chance of success in the...
