    Cricket's County Championship - boring?!

    Cricket is often derided as a boring sport. Four-day cricket even more so, but I think the last week of Division One of the County Championship has disproved that. At the start of play on Wednesday, Lancashire headed the table by 6 points, with a further four sides in with a chance of winning...

    Today's Games - Ratings

    Collis - Excellent game looked very strong all though not really tested to the maxium just a very solid performence. 7 Barrett - Solid as ever, got forward very well and tracked back well seemed to be adopting a wing back role. 8 Clarke (Peter) - Same as Barrett great performence and defended...
  3. Subs can change games...

    ...and that's what happened today. At 1-1 we were dealing with Leeds effectively. Barrett and Clarke stood firm and headed, tackled & cleared their lines well enough and when they were beaten Flavs was in good form. So why did Tilly re-shuffle the back 4 with just under 10 minutes remaining...
  4. Tuesday Night Ratings

    Collis - 8 - looked comfortable all evening and although his kicking sometimes left a little to be desired, the speed he released the ball form his hands to the full backs to begin a counter attack was very good. Fantastic penalty save to take it to ET Gilbert - 6 - did OK tonight nothing more...

    How many times must Macca's bad temper cost up points.

    First off I want to say that I love Macca as a player. I cant question his dedication to the cause and I love his fighting spirit. I accept that that fighting spirit can sometimes boil over but..... How many times must the bloke get pointless bookings and in the case of saturday pointless...

    The fbm view and ratings - West Ham

    FREDDIE RUNS SHOW AS BLUES SUFFER LOSS Well, here we go again as the first home pre season friendly kicked off against West Ham on Saturday. There was a fair smattering of hammers fans in the crowd which was not the sell out predicted but still around the 9500 mark. Southend lined up as...

    CANVEY HIT FOR SIX IN PARK LANE TURKEY SHOOT Southend continued their impressive scoring run in one of the most one sided games I have ever seen... and to be honest the disappointment is that Southend could have easily been well into double figures. Tilson played moreorless two different...

    A bloke at my work (A West Ham Supporter) applied a while ago to be West Ham manager after Glenn Roeder left em, he answered an advert in the paper. His CV that was enclosed stated that he played Sunday footy and also he was a good Hattrick player and a decent Championship Manager player...

    Just got back...

    Just got back after today's game. We started really well and were deserving of our lead - AB, what a hero! But Saints eventually showed that they were the better team. The last three goals that we conceded didn't really matter one bit, by that time the entire Southend section were on their...

    The fbm view and ratings - Barnsley

    HANDICAP FOOTBALL LETS BLUES DOWN AGAIN Southend slipped to their 10th home defeat of the season as another nervous display at the Hall handed a huge boost to their visiting relegation rivals. In the early stages there was little to separate the two teams. Barnsley were missing several first...

    Drunken fights with your mates.

    Had a works do last night to celebrate the end of a very succesful first quarter. Made the school boy error of sending the big bird I work with to the bar first with orders of just get me a pint. She came back with a pint of Stella which was always going to be fatal. Now I work with a bloke...

    FORAN DRAGS BLUES OUT OF THE MIRE Richie Foran chose the right moment to score his first goal for Southend as his injury time strike won the points against dogged resistance at Roots Hall this evening. In a tough, combative match where much of the football was scrappy and goalmouth action at...

    Sheffield Wednesday 3 Southend 2

    Another game, another defeat. But this was a completely different game to the defeats at Sunderland, when we were simply outclassed by a quality team, and the home game against Palace, where both teams played poorly but Palace snatched victory. We started brightly with Maher releasing Foran...

    EAGLES GRAB AN IFILL IN SMASH AND GRAB RAID Southend suffered a home defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace tonight - but it was a performance that deserved much more. The South Londoners were there for the taking in the first half but Southend failed to make their superiority tell. New sharp...

    The fbm view and ratings - Derby

    BLUES SUCCUMB TO HOWARDS WAY It was another point-less afternoon for Southend at the Hall as Derby went clear at the top of the Championship after doing the double over the bottom side. The main difference between the teams was Rams front man and ex-Luton striker Steve Howard. He did the...

    Newcastle United

    I have to say it was wonderful last night to see Newcastle United and their fat oaf of a chairman dumped unceramoniously out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle. As for the so-called "best, most loyal fans in world football - © any mouthy Geordie since year dot", again they covered themselves in...

    Good old BBC

    Southend almost doubled their lead in the dying minutes but keeper Robert Atkinson blocked Lee Bradbury's drive and Gower's 12-yard effort was parried. They were punished in the 93rd minute when Coulson headed home from close range during a mad scramble. correct me if im wrong but im...
