  1. Götze to Bayern

    Ignoring the timing of the announcement, which has been cynically agreed upon to draw attention away from revelations concerning Hoeness' tax fraud shenanigans; that is one hell of a statement of intent from Bayern for the future under Pep Guardiola.

    Dubi Ogbonna, who was linked with moves to Celtic and Aberdeen earlier in the summer and is attracting interest from Southend, was on target as Soham won their opening friendly of pre-season at Cogenhoe 3-1 at the weekend.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/g/grays_athletic/8257886.stm Julian Dicks is the new manager of Grays Athletic, their 13th in 3 years apparently. Very little experience in management to get him this appointment (apart from obviously being their new chairman John Moncur's mate)...
  4. Ref Watch .... Brighton away

    Not sure why I'm giving you this information as, unless you have binoculars with you, you won't be able to see him anyway. Man in charge of this match is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his 3rd year as a League referee and refereeing his first Southend away game. He has however made four visits...

For an indication, a single room en-suite including full English breakfast will be around £50 per night and double/twin...

    AFC Hornchurch Vs Wivenhoe

    As I said I was going to on here last week, I made my 10 minute drive to Bridge Avenue for the Hornchurch Vs Wivenhoe game yesterday. Former Youth team keeper Dale Brightly played for Hornchurch, and looked slightly flappable shall we say. Garry Cross lined up in central midfield, but due to...

    Why Tilly doesn't wear traning tops

    I went down to watch Staines Town (my local club) play Wivenhoe in the FA Trophy today. Standing on the touch line was one Mr Wignall. Not only did Wignall manage to get Southend to the bottom of division 3, but he has now managed to get Wivenhoe to the bottom of the Southern counties eastern...
