    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Freddy Eastwood

    With Freddy there's only one place to start: has there ever been a better debut? I very much doubt it, and I include fiction in that. Scoring after just 7.7 seconds of your professional debut against the top of the table team before going onto complete your hattrick is the type of story that...

    I have 12.9m in the bank and 2 masterful bowlers, 2 masterful bats, 1 exquisite bat with exceptional keeping...and that's it, trainees aside. I cannot decide whether to spend the money, or sell the rest of the high-wage players and relegate in everything for the season. I wanted to buy young on...

  8. Chelsea Recieve Nul Points, Again

    Apparently, Carlo Ancelotti’s mother never warned him that if he pulled a funny face and the wind blew, it would stay that way. Ancelotti pulled the same expression of futile, emotionless pondering for 94 miserable minutes as Chelsea, yet again, faultered in Europe. Much had been made of...

    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...

    United Blow Their Chance

    Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United Eto'o 10 Messi 70 He may have mellowed with age, enough at least to allow the dignitaries to slip a runners-up medal over his head while still smiling warmly, but Sir Alex Ferguson must be furious with the way that this Champions League final was allowed to...
