    1st April 2005: Southend United 2 – 0 Bristol Rovers (League Two) The second half of the decade began with our beloved Shrimpers surging up the league on the back of a series of virtuoso performances from new signing Freddy Eastwood. From the second week of January we went on a long unbeaten run...

    Nick Griffin @ Copenhagen Climate Summit

    He is attending to expose the "somewhat dodgy" evidence surrounding climate change and that it is simply a "global Marxist mantra" designed to "impose a one world government." The BNP's website currently describes the Copenhagen Summit as an "anti-white guilt hatefest which will see billions...

    Think what you like about the BNP

    But some of what they say does make sense... The BBC has pulled an appearance by British National Party leader Nick Griffin on today’s Politics Show at the last moment out of fear that his suggestions for the control of expense claims by members of parliament would find popular appeal...

    Magical Modric

    Spread the word, Luka Modric has arrived. After six months of being kicked off the ball, stamped into the mud and having his pocket money stolen by the bigger boys, the little Croatian wizard has finally put in a performance worthy of his reputation. He tore Stoke City apart at White Hart Lane...

    They Haunted the Os:

    #2 - Richard Cadette When we take an Orient retrospective from the early to late 1980s you can't help but be overcome with a sense of complete and utter misery. While the nation was tearing itself apart over the miner'sstrike the dear old Os were busy getting themselves relegated to Division...

    Carlisle, the Irish, and a terrible hangover...

    Just back from the trip to Glasgow and Carlisle about an hour ago - Still absolutely buzzing from the result! First off, I'd like to say it was an absolute pleasure meeting those of you I bumped into and sat beside for the match. You, along with the masses that travelled up, are an absolutely...

    Securing The Future, Letting Go Of The Past

    It’s been an emotional day. Well, it’s been an emotional day for you guys anyway. I spent the morning frantically trying to make Chelsea’s routine victory over Olympiakos sound interesting and I didn’t even know that the new stadium had been approved until Cricko phoned me up and told me. For me...

    The Stoke view of the match

    An extract from the Stoke OS:- The referee didn't help the flow of the game with some strange decisions, none more so than the booking of Andy Griffin for what seemed a good challenge for a fifty-fifty ball just before half-time. Griffin was hurt when the Southend player showed his studs, but...

    Stoke City v SUFC : Pre match thoughts

    Well, after Tuesday nights outstanding win against Birmingham I see no reason why we can't go on and bag all three points at The Britannia Stadium. With all the conjecture about Freddy and whether he'll go or stay during the transfer window finally over we, hopefully, might see him finding his...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 3

    "There will be no stadium at Fossetts Farm and the future of the football club remains at Roots Hall." A year after being ousted from position of chairman at Southend United, John Main returned to warn fans that a new stadium was merely a pipe-dream. His words, posted on a Southend United...

    Where will the competition come from?

    Six games to go and it's pretty tense. We're in an excellent position, 6 points clear and with 4 of our 6 remaining games at home.  Some bookies have stopped taking bets on us and the rest of the division has conceded that we're up. In fact, the only people who don't seem to think we're up is...
