    Lessons to be learnt mr. Brown

    I went to Braintree v Lincoln last night & was so impressed with a few things that the Cowleys have set up at the Imps -- simple enough things that Phil Brown + his coaching team seem to be blatantly missing out on. First of all the intensity of the warm up . The difference between between...

    Away game to forget

    Is there an away game which you wished you hadn't gone to, or one that you can't believe that you actually went to the bother of going to? For me I can't believe that I went to Burnley on 31st December 1994 in the Peter Taylor era and it was not a classic season, it had started with a 3-1...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Tranmere Rovers

    Another BIG home game for us and an equally important game for the visitors. There have been suggestions that Rovers will "park the bus" however they may recognise the need for 3 points. The pitch looks good, the weather is fine & we need a large and correctly noisy support. IMO the team picks...

    This week, Tom (A Century United) from all the way up the top of Scotland answers the questions. Below is a picture of him amongst the starting 11 for the League 2 Playoff Final. The woman in white sitting on the number 1 forgot her boots that day, thus why Duncan Jupp got the nod. 1) How...

    1. Do you conceal the love of your life from everyone and simply dissappear on Saturdays ? 2. Do wait quietly during football conversations saying nothing until asked - before quietly dropping in the fact that you support the greatest team on earth ? 3. Do you share your passion with a few...
