    Pre-Match Thread Daggers v Southend United - NO TUBE SERVICE!!!!!!!!!

    Big game Saturday...Can we make it 14 unbeaten and our 12th win in the same period? 1,500 "officially" making the trip. But, it seems many more will be behind enemy lines. Let's hope they behave themselves... As we know, there are NO TUBES running to Dagenham East. So please use alternative...

    Ricky Duncan: 'It's Your Club'

    During Monday's Question & Answer session with Southend United Head of Youth Ricky Duncan, the Under-18s coach repeatedly made it clear that SUFC is "your club" and will belong to the fans even after he leaves. Ricky is especially keen to foster these links, and there were a number of...

    They don't seem to be impressing the Charlton fans with their performances yet. A real mixture of comments about the two of them here - http://www.charltonlife.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=36758&page=1 http://www.charltonlife.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=36756&page=1#Item_0

    Sturrock Pulls No Punches

    PS reaction to todays defeat...............he's not a happy bunny. Adams took 18 months to build his squad and he views PV as potential Champions. They played as he would like us to play. Willing to accept the criticism of the fans but not willing to accept the standard of performance from the...
  11. A bit of respect and perspective?

    So we got a great win last night. And Paul Sturrock has assembled a new squad of players in a relatively short period of time. And it's all different and new and there's some promise of what might be achieved. I also have a lot of regard for what Paul Sturrock has achieved as a manager at...

    Where will Lebron go?

    NBA Free Agency kicks off at midnight tonight (EST), and all eyes are on King James. It looks like Chicago is the front runner to land Lebron, but the Heat, Nets, Knicks, Mavs, Clips and of course the Cavaliers are in the mix. I'd love him to come to LA and set up another 'Battle of Los Angeles'...

    Scottish Cup Final; Ross County v Dundee Unitred

    There's only one place to be this weekend. West Stand at Hampden Park. It's another Highland Clearance. Dingwall, a town of just 5,200, and Ross & Cromarty barely making it past 20,000. It's going to be a relatively empty part of the UK come Saturday, though, with over 17,000 descending on...
  14. Tangled up in Blue


    Anyone else see it? Not suprisingly we didn't get any of our players in the regional team although if Barney had stayed the consensus was that he would have made the mix. Feeling was that Tilly might well be off to a new job soon. Amusing to see the Chairman in his "see you later" rebuke to...

    The Shackleford Alliance

    With no party looking capable of securing an overall majority, a hung parliament and a second election look likely. With that in mind, I believe a new political movement is required to shake off the current inertia and fill the electorate with a heady mixture of enthusiasm and terror. I...

    Reasons to love Hitchcock

    1. In 'Psycho', where the guy is creeping up the stairs to check out the mother's bedroom, and the camera switches to an overhead view and then - out of nowhere - she rushes out knife in hand. ***** me up just thinking about it. 2. For that amazing shot in 'Frenzy' where you realise that the...

    An exiles view

    First, I understand completely that those of you who watched it suffered the most. You paid good money and by the sound of things had a great deal of hassle to be there. You also had to take the taunts and chants of the farmer scum as we were losing. However I feel I suffered with you. Rising...
