  1. Praise from Lofty

    I caught a bit of Fighting Talk on Radio 5 and Lofty (him from Eastenders in the 80's) gave praise to Paul S for building a team that stayed in League 2. :clap:

    Fighting Talk

    The podcast - nice mention for Antony Grant by Tom Watt (formerly Lofty off Eastenders, now a football journo). They were discussing lower-league players who could go on to play for the prem. His argument was it doesn't happen anymore - if they're good enough they're in the Prem at 15/16. Then...

    Time For Chelsea To Grow Up

    WHAT’S GONE WRONG AT CHELSEA? For six years, Chelsea have been a relentless winning machine, but that arrogant sense of superiority has faded away. In its place is hesitancy, vulnerability and a worrying inability to dictate the flow of games. Chelsea are dropping points so frequently that...

    Memory Lane Episode No 6 Season 1931-32

    Here's Episode No. 6 of Season 1931-32 and was printed in the Southend v Southampton programme. Extracts from "The Forgotten Years of the Kursaal" by Peter William Baker No. 6 THE ONLY UNBEATEN SIDE IN THE COUNTRY That was Southend United’s proud claim after nine League games and word...

    Standing Ovation? For A Cheat?

    So we've all forgiven Cristiano Ronaldo then have we? Did I miss a meeting? I've seen some strange things in football this week. I've watched first-hand as a star-studded Tottenham Hotspur side fail to string more than three passes together. I've sat in surprise at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea...

    CL Betting tonight

    After pickign up a nice chunk of value on Liverpool winning and getting a bit lucky with the sending off, I'm keen to have a punt on the game tonight*. I think Man Utd look too short at that price and you feel that they would happily take a draw back to Old Trafford. Overs 2.5 goals at 2.6 is...

    League two - you're supposed to be at home?

    I don't know why I've noticed this but briefly glancing at Hereford's lofty league position I noticed that their away from was absolutely stunning and then I noticed that they weren't alone. Of the top 12 teams in League 2, only three have won more home games than away games and of all 24, only...
  8. The programme

    Don't want to be too critical on the club but some of the writing in the programme is terrible. If you have Saturday's programme you may have noticed several articles written in a style which can only be described as absolute gibberish. p24 Eric Odhiambo interview 'Eric Odhiambo may be in his...
  9. Better than Hamsters

    Our friends the Hamsters are averaging less than a point a game despite their big signings and million pound squad. We really should'nt be moaning. Please let's have a little perspective on SZ. Credit to Col Ewe, I thought they would be on SZ reminding us of their lofty position and...

    The fbm view and ratings

    I learnt at a very early age that Southend always blow it in front of a big crowd. I had persuaded myself that today would be an exception. Sadly, over 7000 witnessed that fact that it wasn’t. Today, the atmosphere seemed subdued. I said to my mate before kick off that the players needed to...
