    Bill Maynard gone

    Michael Timlin - the missing heartbeat of the side?

    I honestly believe that Timlin missing is one of our biggest problems. He and Lenny work best alongside each other, and in an orthodox four man midfield, they are amongst the best pairings in the division. Both cover defenders where necessary and both track back and tackle, which other CMs...

    Richie Foran

    According to 4 4 2 magazine Invernesss C.T.s 'key player' for the coming season is Richie Foran. "Richie Foran has blossomed from tempermental wild-child to a clean cut, dependable captain. Now operating in a deeper midfield role, he's the heartbeat of the team." There's no mention of whether...

    I have been sent on the following email from an Orient fan complaining about unsporting behaviour from our tannoy announcer. Personally i didnt hear the noice described - anyone else?? This fella has complained to Southend, Orient & the football League.. Subject: Southend United vs Leyton...
  7. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...
  8. The Big Shrimp

    Scarborough & North Yorkshire Moors

    Me & the better half are staying up that way for a few days & wondered if anybody could suggest must see places to visit. We're intending to go to Whitby, Robin Hood Bay (Inspired by the TV prog, Coast!) Rievaulx Abbey & Goathland (Heartbeat village & no I never watched it!) to name a few...
  9. Pac Man Pummels Clottey, Provokes Mayweather

    Manny Pacquiao sent out a warning shot to Floyd Mayweather Junior by drubbing Joshua Clottey, taking the African apart in twelve long, gruelling rounds. The only reason this fight was scheduled was because of the row over drug testing between Pacquiao and Mayweather, with Mayweather facing...

    No Respect From Scolari

    Respect? Not at Stamford Bridge. Four wins on the bounce should be enough to cheer any manager up, but Luis Felipe Scolari still found reason to storm down the tunnel after his side's 2-0 win over Middlesbrough. It was assistant manager Ray Wilkins who was left to shake hands with the opposition...

    Dull versus Filthy

    I think this debate needs to be settled following on from the thread on Jennifer Aniston's new calendar. Personally I think Aniston has the edge over Jolie and I've said it before and I will say it again, I would jump into bed with Aniston in a heartbeat. Jolie to me looks like a walking...

    The Great Technology Debate

    Its not just transfer rumours which get out of control in the ‘silly’ season but also always appearing from the shadows again is the subject of TV referees or a 3rd eye if you prefer. A referee sitting high in the sky surrounded by as many tvs as your local Dixons and making the call on a...

    The Best Birthday Present Ever

    Yesterday I thought the writing was on the wall, or on the toilet pan. I'd woken up with a migrane, dodgy stomach and had a case of the 2 bob bits, it was my birthday (25yrs young) and to kop it all off I faced the prospect of watching my team be thrashed on national tele by the worlds biggest...

    My day out

    Well, found out early yesterday that I had today off. managed to get a ticket at the last minute (thanks to Its grim up north) and made my merry way down to the Liberty stadium. Leaving at around 11 ish, I set off for a gentle stroll through the enterprise park from my home in Birchgrove. It...
  15. Lads!

    Ah, Tit Monday. It's not that far off now, that glorious day when, heading into work on the bus, or walking to the Tube, or sitting on the train, you find yourself suddenly chirpier than you have been in months. You find yourself smiling at strangers again. There is a mild involuntary...

    Friday's Joke

  19. Matchday support

    I know the supporters have not had a lot to cheer over the last number of years but Roots Hall is fast becoming a morgue. Cant we all come up with suggestions as how to rally the fans and in so doing rouse the troops? A drum band perhaps or assistance from the home tannoy. New chants. Anything...

    Alex Ferguson

    Alex Ferguson, or Sir Alex, if you are a brown-nosing journalist, has apparently had a pacemaker fitted to cure an irregular heartbeat. According to the Beeb's web-site the operation took 90 minutes. Not the first 90th minute equaliser he's endured this week then!
