    Under-18s vs. Colchester

    The boys from the OS were at the match this afternoon, but I thought I'd post a short report here as the Under-18s moved to the top of the Youth Alliance South-East Conference with a narrow 1-0 win over Colchester United. The Shrimpers' only goal of the game was scored by 17-year-old attacker...

    Ads during games

    This is an article about the National Rugby League (NRL) in Australia. I've posted it on here because I think this is a worrying development for televised sport in general and football in particular. Ours is a sport that's run for TV by TV and don't be surprised if we have ad breaks during...

    The Issue of Standing

    Noted on the Stand Up Sit Down website: An Ipswich Town supporter reports on his experiences at their away game v Southend as follows: ‘ Southend yesterday with Ipswich is a perfect example of how it should be. The seating was unreserved seating. This means that all those who want to sit i.e...

    Why we need to be EXTREMELY WORRIED…

    … YET STRANGELY OPTIMISTIC!! Sometimes when a team is promoted, the momentum from previous seasons can be enough to carry you still forward – see Wigan last season in the Premiership and just look at what we achieved last year ourselves. But then sometimes the step up in class is just too...
  6. Watching on Sky Thread...

    Couldnt make it today, so having to do with Skys coverage. As usual, they are talking up Eastwood, but on the whole seem fairly knowledgable about us for once (Claridge in the 'studio'). Mick McCarthy and Peter Taylor watching from the stands. Think we have done ok so far. Hunt looks...

    Drop Prior, Hammell, Francis AND Guttridge!

    ...and other overly-simplistic comments. If only football were a simple game? There's still much to take heart from! Having seen a lot of debate already following two defeats about which player is letting the team down (Hammell, Francis, Guttridge, JCR) I firmly believe that selecting...

  12. Oxford Ratings

    Nobody has mentioned much about the players performances today. Hard to know what to feel. I was so nervous I guess I'm just glad I didnt explode! Gutted about the result, pleased that other results went our way, but a sinking feeling that we may well blow it now.... AARRGHHHH...

    Why aren't we taken seriously?

    Southend 1-0 Shrewsbury Southend maintained their play-off bid courtesy of a Freddy Eastwood goal 12 minutes from the end to earn a narrow 1-0 victory against lowly Shrewsbury. The Shrews could have snatched the lead after just five minutes but Luke Rodgers fired an easy chance wide. Southend...
  14. What price genius?

    Two extremely talented young men that don't conform to the moral standards of newspaper editors are being pilloried in the press this week. This begs the question, are we no longer able to tolerate wayward geniuses in this country anymore? Most bile is being reserved for Pete Doherty, who...

    Ratings for today

    The worst home display this season bar Cheltenham, yet we still beat a very good side. Football truly is a 'funny old game' as they say! We didn't pass it well, the defence, especially the full backs were all over the place at times and Pettefer and Hunt (2nd half mainly for...
  16. Billericay v Southend

    Billericay T 1 - 1 Southend U McSweeney 75* Drrreeeewwweeee 5  [858 souls] *approx Quite an entertaining match to be honest... Whilst Billericay were happy to just lump the ball forward, our lads soaked up any potential threat from their forwards pretty well. A lot of our play was balls to...
