    Michael Caine's political maxim.

    There was an article in the Times this morning in which Michael Caine said that he didn't trust anyone who was left of Tony Blair or right of David Cameron. Sounds like a sensible political judgement to me.

    Owners rights

    Saw this in the Mail on Sunday. The Russian wife of Bournemouth's part owner Maxim Demin stormed into the dressing room at half time to deliver a pep talk. Losing 1-0, the players sat shocked as Irena Demlin demanded a second half improvement. They went on to lose by the same score but she was...

    Stick With Rafa

    (For a different paper this time, hence the shorter word count) Is the FA Cup important again? It's the only explanation for the sudden turnaround at Anfield. Like a battered wife, the Liverpool fans have taken one beating too many and they're rising up, teeth bared, against Rafa Benitez...

    Five From Five

    England 2-1 Ukraine Crouch, 29 Shevchenko, 74 Terry, 85 It was his strongest display of emotion so far. As the final whistle blew, Fabio Capello marched out of his technical area, raised his clenched fists to the sky and roared triumphantly. This was a far more impressive scoreline than it...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...

    Cheating Physio

    This made me laugh... (despite the fact it says maxim, this is actually a football video, and not a 1-0 attempt) http://www.maximmag.co.uk/inbox/videoclips/10266/funny_video.html

    Surprisingly accurate personality test

    http://www.animalinyou.com/survey.asp When I worked at The Independent we used this personality test on ten people in the office and it was pretty much spot-on in every case. It only asks a handful of questions, so God knows how it works. Anywhere, here's me. I'm a rooster! Roosters are...

    The fbm view and ratings

    BRIGHTON ROCK AS LATE SHOW SEALS BLUES PASSAGE Southend made heavy going of their 2nd round Carling Cup tie against Brighton at Roots Hall this evening, but in the end it was a naive managerial decision by Albion caretaker boss Dean Wilkins that showed Blues the way.  Tilly had made 2 changes...
