  1. Ref Watch The Return of Refwatch Accrington (A)

    A new season dawns with our fifth consecutive year in this dreadful division which requires us to go to places like Accrington, as we embark on three away matches in 22 days with a combined distance of over 1,700 miles. There is an element of Groundhog Day about this match as for the third year...

    Bournemouth have rejected two bids for defender Simon Francis from Championship rivals Derby County
  3. Spotted in WSC ;

    Get With The Programme ~ Southend Utd v Leeds UtdJanuary 29, 2008, League One30 January ~ Southend club captain Kevin Maher wrote in the colourful, 84-page match programme that he'd been with the club a decade, and "it doesn't happen very often now where a player will spend ten years at the same...
  4. Ref Watch ....... Accrington A

    The man in charge tomorrow is experienced referee, Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear. He referees this fixture for the second year running, having sent off Cresswell (not unreasonably) in last season's drawn match. This is his seventh season as a League referee, although we had seen little of him...
  5. Who would you have back? Ex Blues players

    So Grantie is available for loan and Hall is unattached. Both are thus "available". For me Grantie is good BUT we don't have a spot at his position AND Hall brings too much baggage. Ex players I would have back (still playing) are Hammill, Francis, Devitte and Hooper. I am sure I have missed a...

  8. Simon Francis

    Players Player of the Season at Bournemouth. Would have him back here any day.
  9. Ref Watch ...... Accrington away

    The man in charge tomorrow is experienced referee, Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear. This is his sixth season as a League referee, although we have seen little of him for nearly four years - just the Bury away Cup match earlier this season Just as well, some might say bearing in mind he has...
  10. Ref Watch FA CUP REFWATCH ... Bury

    The man in charge is experienced referee, Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear. This is his sixth season as a League referee, although we have seen nothing of him for nearly four years. Just as well, some might say bearing in mind he has awarded four penalties against us in just 3 matches, the last...
  11. The team we could have conceivably been watching

    Just watching the incredible Reading v Arsenal game and watching the players we've had at the Hall over recent years, either on loan or owned, that we could be watching now. A lot of the loans we probably could have signed if we'd have had some cash on the hip at the time...

    Ex-Shrimpers scoring 20/10

    Lots today. Gary Hooper, Alex Revell, Michael Kightly, Jabo Ibehre and Simon Francis with a rare goal for Bournemouth.
  13. Great opposition goals..............

    We must have seen some goals from the opposition which stick in the memory........... I remember Exeter City at the Hall, October 1983, Gerry Francis was their player/manager. Ex-England captain, QPR, Spurs. Pouring with rain, gale blowing, he picked up the ball in his own half. A couple of...

    Which squad is better, the current one or the one from 2009/10?

    The thread "Do you now feel affinity with the team" made me look back at the squad that got us relegated in 2009/10, assuming that the OS of each club is accurate. They weren't getting paid by us, which would account for a lot, but have the individual players gone on to do well? Franck Moussa...
  15. Oldham Athletic Report

    I went along to Bournemouth v Oldham on Saturday to take a closer look at next week’s FA Cup opponents. The game finished 0-0 and was absolutely dire – if we are to go up this season, and if this match is indicative of the quality of the bottom half of L1, we should be fine in that...
