  11. Paterson interview from SSN

    Interesting article. Southend supporters have certainly been put through the wringer this season, with the very existence of their club hanging in the balance at one stage. It appeared such issues had been laid to rest once a £2.1million tax bill was settled with HM Revenues and...

    Olly Murs

    This man needs a kicking. I hate him the talentless, ugly, twonk. He can't sing and the dancing is worse than the world's most embarassing Dad could perform at a Christmas Party. Yet, he will have the Christmas #1 single thanks to his likely win in the X Factor this weekend. Ugly? Don't get me...

    Clough and Ready

    He didn't pick the team, he didn't give the teamtalk and he didn't mastermind the tactics, but the mere presence of new manager Nigel Clough at Pride Park seemed to inspire Derby County to an unlikely, but fully deserved victory over Manchester United. Clough may be following in his famous...
