  3. Dundee Utd boss Peter Houston brings forward Tannadice exit

    Might as well start a paranoia thread. Dundee United is now without a manager. I'm sure PS now appreciates the lure of the Essex Riviera as appoosed to his first love.

    The lure of a 20+ goals a season striker

    I see that the promoted teams this season scored around 72 goals on average (Southend scored more with 77 - and that includes a massive 41 away from home). So, if you have two good strikers getting 14 each along with other another couple of strikers scoring 5 each that gives you 38 to start...

    Club to experiment with free admission ?

    With attendances starting to dwindle, I understand that the Club is to look at possible ways to entice the so called 'marginal supporters' who might otherwise be tempted by the lure of neighbouring clubs such as Canvey , Chelmsford and even Braintree Town, to visit Roots Hall. It is not thought...

    Greek Tragedy For King Otto

    South Korea 2-0 Greece EURO 2004 SEEMS AN AWFULLY LONG TIME AGO It’s hard to believe that Greece ever caused the European superpowers such headaches. Granted, they were never blessed with a generation of superstars, but they always had their composure, their organisation and their ability to...

    Choosing your government is like choosing a girlfriend....?

    "Choosing a government is as random as choosing a girlfriend or boyfriend. Some small, probably irrelevant or misunderstood thing can draw you in or drive you away. They put on their best front and hide all the bad stuff until they’ve won you over and you stay with them until the opportunity for...

    Crisis Time, But Don't Sack Rafa

    Forget the Champions League. Forget the Europa League. Forget the FA Cup. For Liverpool, nothing now is more important than the Premier League. The very future of the football club depends on where they finish in the table in May. The crass stupidity of the leveraged buy-out that gave control...

    Ancelotti Needs Time

    Roman Abramovich has made his decision. Now let's see if he'll stick with it. The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as his fifth manager in under two years may have been met with a mixed response from the fans, but the identity of the man is less important than the duration of his tenure. Chelsea...

    Question New signings - how much info will we get this week ?

    With the exception of Sawyer ( if we get him), can we expect a wall of silence regarding comings and goings this week ? After all we've done our best in recent weeks to lure Scolari into thinking that we are a **** side that can't score for toffee, haven't we ?

    David James

    It is a testament to David James' resilience that he has worked so hard to overcome his injury in time for today's FA Cup Final, but the lure of the big game is only part of his motivation. James, for all of his heroics this season, is more aware than most that when it comes to the FA Cup Final...

    Worst FA Cup? I think not

    Monday morning was like a scene from one of those post-apocalyptic movies that usually star Mel Gibson. The old order has been shattered, the new dawn has arrived and the scattered survivors crawl from their bolt-holes to blink in confusion at the much reduced skyline and wonder if things will...

On the other hand , I felt the Man U build up and subsequent euphoria took our minds off the...

    Does anyone actually know what our players are on and therefore what we offer when we try to lure players from other clubs ?? I have heard that Hartlepool, yes Hartlepool, are paying some of their players over £4,000 per week. Presumably Ling must have made a good offer to Boyd to get him at...
