    The Song Remains The Same

    There is a feeling among the journalists who cover Arsenal regularly that, in the event of a calamitous keyboard malfunction, they could probably file their latest match report using a hastily-assembled hybrid of old ones. A quick rummage through 'My Documents', they claim, would deliver all the...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1 Leeds United 0

    Well done Steve Tilson and the boys... No boring 1-0 this one. A truly enthralling match at the Hall in which Southend emerged as worthy winners through an excellent long-range free kick from Dan Harding on 18 minutes. Southend started well in the first half with a virtuoso performance from...

    Chelsea Dominant As Villa Crumble

    Crisis? What crisis? Beset by injuries, Chelsea saved their best performance of the season so far for the day when the smart money was on Aston Villa to end that long unbeaten home run of theirs. Luiz Felipe Scolari's walking wounded preserved their record in a magnificent first half before...
  5. Question Battle Of The Horror Films Rd 12

    This battle is the an interesting tiff between the 1970's psychological horror of Kubrick's The Shining (Mr B) vs a 21st century bit of torture "porn" in the shape of Hostel (SUFCLiam). I know which way my vote is going but don't let my exquisite taste sway your decision!

    SZ BT Dream Team

    Be interesting to see how good our combo team would be. I've stuck three in but I'd surprised if I even have one by the end of it: Bat1: Davenport (Southend) - Exceptional/Exceptional Bat2: Cunningham (SZCC) - Exceptional/Remarkable Bat3: Potter (DDCC) - Wonderful/Sensational Bat4: Bat5...

    How should I improve my batting?

    You may or may not have noticed it but I need to improve my batting somewhat…. With the new season only a few weeks away, I need to start planning how I'm going to do it. As it stands I will be using 5 nets at the start of next season, 2 bat, 1 field & 1 stamina on Cunningham and a single...

  14. MK Shrimper's Film Recommendations

    Some cracking films on the box this week, and as you all know my taste is exquisite, so you can't go very far wrong. :D American History X / In the Company of Men / Last Orders, all of them stonking. Set your Sky +, Betamax video or just stay in a watch them.

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...
  17. Mr Wooly


    Just a few quick points on tonight for those not there. I'm sure FBM is preparing a full-blown masterpiece as we speak, so just a few words from me! First Half - Probably one of the best 45 minutes of football I've seen from a Southend side. Quick passing, movement, organisation in abundance...
