  1. Col U Minnows

    saw this and it made me laugh... "Spurs continue their pre-season with an away game against minnows Colchester United" :hilarious: http://www.goal.com/en-india/news/3735/club-friendlies/2013/07/16/4118592/your-guide-to-tottenhams-pre-season-friendlies
  2. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...

    Fourth? Pah!

    Has there ever been a tag-line as profoundly underwhelming as the ‘Battle For Fourth’? Even for the English, who celebrate mediocrity with such enthusiasm that Tim Lovejoy has been encouraged to forge a career in broadcasting, this is a new low. Fourth? It’s not even a place on the podium. It’s...

    Harry's Nostalgia - North Bank Memories

    With the imminent return to the North Bank, albeit for two games I thought I'd share a few memories with you, while I still have them that is. Firstly though a big well done to Smiffy, TrueBlue and all the others who have worked hard to achieve this. :clap: From the first day I stepped into...

    Alternative national anthems at football matches

    Accepting as everyone does that "500 miles" by the Proclaimers is now the unofficial national anthem of Scotland (Ba-Duuuuub-Daaaaahhh....), I think FIFA should bite the bullet and play this before Scotland's international matches. I'd like to compile for Mr Blatter a list of alternatives for...

    Dear Andorra

    Now, on the off chance that someone from Andorra is holidaying in Singapore and is reading this article, let me make it clear that I have nothing against your country. I've never met an Andorran, which is hardly surprising as I believe there are only about 30 of you in existence, but I'm sure...

    That special feeling that fans of 'big'clubs miss out on

    It must be dull following a 'big' team. Watching your favourites playing 'big' teams every week and scoring against them routinely. How can that compare with the excitement of watching your local 'minnows' take on a 'massive' club once in a blue moon and if you're lucky scoring once or even...
  8. Horns,banners and flags!!!

    Yep thats right,Wembley beckons for us! Yipeeeee Once we see off minnows Luton then 35,000 seagull fans will decend on London.An invasion not seen since queen Boudicca and her army raised it to the ground. I CAN'T BLOODY WAIT.

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-4 Chelsea

    Scolari Safe... For Now Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be in the mood to be pleasant to any of his players after a week of backbiting and under-achievement, but if he has any sense, he'll give Petr Cech a very firm pat on the back. The word 'crisis' may be overused in football, but had it not been...
  10. Advert for Wednesday

    ITV are continually running an advert for Wednesday's match. "Could the minnows cause one of the biggest upsets in the FA Cup ? " -- ish. I have seen it twice this evening. Anyone else seen it ?

    Here are the match reports... The New Paper, Singapore (i.e. Slipperduke) - Shrimpers Stun Scolari Grauniad: Scolari blusters as Southend show no fear of Chelsea Observer: Birthday-boy Clarke gives Southend a reason to party Daily Mail: Essex minnows admire Lampard's touch of class The...

    England v United States

    And so the recovery continues. Fabio Capello's patient, paternal treatment of the blundering failures who shamed the nation last year is, little by little, beginning to pay off. He hasn't asked them to play in strange formations, he hasn't made sweeping changes, he hasn't even announced a...

    What did i miss...

    after taking the foolish decision of travelling to Hampden Park, Glasgow to watch Aberdeen's shambolic performance and defeat to division one minnows Queen of the south in the scottish Cup semi-final.. what was the southend game like?! also like to add the difference of the fans north and...
  14. FA Cup to be seeded

    The FA Cup, the world's most exciting football competition, is to be seeded next season in a bid to avoid the embarrassing situation that organisers have found themselves in this year, with only minnows occupying the four Semi Final places. The last four teams in the competition - Barnsley...

    Southend 3 - 1 West Brom

    STEVE TILSON reckons Southend's Great Escape is on after Jamal Campbell-Ryce's dazzling one-man show sunk West Brom. The Shrimpers starlet supplied some belated New Year fireworks at chilly Roots Hall with a deadly first-half double. Campbell-Ryce's heroics were enough to give...

    New Centre back!

    From sky sports,whos this Bennett guy? Sunderland's disastrous start to the season continued against minnows Southend, a 3-1 defeat leaving Niall Quinn's side rooted to the foot of the table. Adam Bennett scored a brace for The Shrimpers (45 and 68) and Lee Bradbury added another...

    Today's Fiver

    A BENT REFEREE AND A FAIR COP Granny Fiver always used to say: "Crime doesn't pay". As Granny had a battering ram in one hand and enough diamonds to pebbledash the new Wembley in the other, the Fiver resolved merely to never get caught. Were we to attempt to fix a match, for instance, we'd go...
