    Francis Laurent

    Has been released after a not so impressive spell. Would he be worth a go again? http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/13334606.stm

    Memory Lane A nod to last year's unfortunately relegated superstars...

    They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good... 1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying...

    The price of Missiles!

    As quoted in todays paper "Defence expert Francis Tusa said yesterday Britain pays around £1.5million for a pair of air-launched Storm Shadow bombs. Each sea-launched Tomahawk sets us back about £900,000 a throw. And Mr Tusa, editor of Defence Analysis, said Tornado jets cost £40,000 to be in...

    Spurs or Man United

    What was the better team; who deserved more plaudits - Tilly or Webb? The line-ups v Spurs in October 1989: Southend United - Sansome, Dixon (Edinburgh 71), Roberts, Martin, Prior, Brush, Cook (Walsh 90), Butler, Crown, McDonough, Bennett Spurs - Thorsvedt, M.Thomas (Howells 55), Van den...

    Question Who would you rather have - Hall vs Moussa

    I remember being a bit gutted when Francky Moussa left in the summer. Only really his departure and Simon Francis's bothered me. However I think the form and general ability of Ryan Hall now he seems to have settled in has been a breath of fresh air and is probably the reason why were flying...
  8. Happy Birthday Francis Jeffers

    Taken from the Liverpool Echo this morning. Amazing.
  9. Feancis Laurent

    Francis Laurent has signed for Northampton. Reckon he would have done a good job for us this year.
  10. Francis Laurent

    Northampton fans seem to think he's the right winger mentioned at the bottom of this article and that he'll be joining them very shortly - http://www.northamptonchron.co.uk/sport/football/cobblers/northampton_town_new_striking_target_for_cobblers_after_akinde_deal_falls_through_1_2297205
  11. Macca and Francis

    They don't seem to be impressing the Charlton fans with their performances yet. A real mixture of comments about the two of them here - http://www.charltonlife.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=36758&page=1 http://www.charltonlife.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=36756&page=1#Item_0

    Players let go over the summer

    A rare Saturday without a game gives me a chance to catch up with the players who were released in the summer. Championship Moussa, Mildenhall and Barrett are all on the bench. League One Francis and McCormack are both playing for Charlton who are losing 3-0. They are the only two players...
  13. Breaking News Barrett's Banter

    Barrett's Banter: Bring on the cup IT’S the return of the FA Cup for us this weekend and I personally cannot wait to play. I’m an old traditionalist where this competition is concerned and I really do think it’s still something special. When I was a kid we all grew up dreaming of playing in...

    Come on ladies - time for the FITTEST XI to play for the Blues!

    It doesn't seem as if anyone has run this idea through in recent times at least so let's see what we can come up with to counterbalance the UGLIEST XI and come up with a team of drop dead hunks! GK - Flavs, obvious really although Neil Freeman was pretty hot too back in the days. RB - Has to...

    What have I missed

    Have been at World Cup for past 10 days with no internet access. My old man has done his best to keep me updated and so far I know * Simon Francis has signed * £70k bid for unnamed striker * New Keeper from Yeovil. Rather that read the 6 million threads since I left can someone give me an...
  16. Blues SMS News service

    I subscribed to the "NEWS STHND" s service and received a couple of texts with news of gowers contract extension and the collis signing, but have since received nothing. I know others have received messages about the Insure and go sponsorship deal and Simon Francis signing. Has...

    Simon Jordan

    This guys a legend. Taken from the Observer: Forget Bruce, trouble starts with true blue Sullivan David Sullivan doesn't like his players. 'They're on £20-30,000 a week and they're not earning it; it makes you resentful,' he says, 'I've reached the stage where I don't like footballers.' Fair...

    Southend v. Tranmere

    Erm... am I missing something here, or has no one managed to put up a match report for our 0-0 draw at Tranmere? Oh well... not much to report, really.  We were as mediocre at Prenton Park as we had been scintillating the previous week against Brentford. I'm too tired tonight to do a big, long...
