  2. Football Manager Live

    Thought i'd give you guys an update on the game as i've been testing it now for 2 months. Since I last posted, they've added a ton of new features to test that'll be included in the release version. The new Match Engine seems Ok... More of a fixed FM08 Engine now but still a little bugs to be...

    My Match Ratings

    I don't usually do this after games but i thought i would show how i rated the players' performances last night... Flahavan- 6- In all fairness he had nothing to do, there two shots on target resulted in two goals. Made a couple of good punched clearances and a couple of good catches...
  5. January PotM.....

    Am I the only one who looked and heard in disbelief when Mark Gower was given the PotM award for January??? :confused: I honestly can't think of him having any outstanding games in January (except Leeds where the whole team worked their socks off!). For me he has been well below par the last...
  6. Just got back...ratings

    Here we go - Flavs - 6 - Didnt do anything wrong but distribution was a bit messy Francis - 5.5 - Gave the ball away too much imo and left gaps at the back Clarke - 6.5 - Steady but has won more headers in a game Barrett - 6 - Poor for the goal but won stuff in the air Mulgrew - 6.5 - Worked...

    England Pass Test...Eventually

    They call Fabio Capello, ‘the hardman of Italian football’ and on Thursday morning he showed us all why. The iconoclastic boss had already demonstrated that there are no longer grazing rights here for sacred cows by refusing to give David Beckham a mercy-cap, but he went on to shatter egos and...

    Nothing Yet For Keegan

    Newcastle’s worrying, barren run under Kevin Keegan stretched to its third game on Wednesday morning when they were beaten for the second time in four days by Arsenal. Once again, the Magpies came to play football and once again they were ruthlessly punished for their audacity. Most managers...
  10. what Leeds think of us -

    View GalleryA RUN-DOWN on Leeds United's opponents tonight The Gaffer Steve Tilson. Tilson steered the Shrimpers from League Two to the Championship in two seasons, but they have not recovered quickly from their relegation last season. Tilson was forced to part with striker Freddy Eastwood and...

    Swing The Axe, Fabio!

    With a rare swathe of midweek Premier League fixtures, the next few days represent the last chance for English footballers to worm their way into Fabio Capello’s affections. The Italian manager names his first England squad on Saturday after spending a month travelling up and down the country in...
  12. Jcr....

    .....hope he gets a good reception from us tonight, said nothing but nice things about the club and especially the fans when he left - let's prove his comments were right! ;) Final ball was poor on the occasions it arrived but I'll be happy to applaud him, he always gave 100% for Southend United.

    4-5-1 ?

    We all know we have a problem finding someone to play up front . We also know that we have players who can break from midfield and score goals .We definitely know that our defence needs shoring up . And we are not very good at retaining the ball thesedays. So how about playing King Kev in a...
  14. Mark Gower.........

    If this man could cross a ball and get it more than 2 feet off the floor we may have stood a chance today..... I counted 7 occasions including corners where his crossing let us down!

    Wiggy's ratings!

    Collis 4 rooted to his line on all occasions, no confidence and can't believe goalkeeping coach Lee Turner hasn't concentrated in this area as he is definately worse than Flavs around the 6 yard box Hunt 5 caught out a couple of times and now time for Francis to come in Hammel 7 good delivery...

    Pants or Boxers

    With the unnecesary mention of pants just now on the xmas present thread I wondered how many of you actually wear these horrid restricting excuses for underwear. My perception of underwear - for men at least, is that it is a garment to keep you slightly warmer and to prevent your "under...
  17. I Hate them....

    I bet, by any money that wants to be included, that i have the worst local security by far.... On a real note, you have Mon/Wed/Fri on a real note... Just so happens that this week that they should've checked me this week and they would've caught a good 2/3 of me instead of the 0 they caught...

    The fbm report - Carlisle

    SOUTHEND CRUMBLE TO THE CUMBRIANS For the first time since the home game against Colchester on April 6th, Southend failed to score in a game (including pre season friendlies) as they went down 1-0 at home to Carlisle. Blues missed the opportunity to go top of the table in a keenly contested...
