    OD - Week 5

    ShrimperZone CC v Anything Goes Batting first again and probably need to pick up the pace against a decent outfit. End of Over 27: 130-1, runrate=4.81 Blackman 4-0-31-1 Lamey* 50 (65 balls) Cunningham 8 (8 balls) Last Wicket: Sinethemba b. Blackman 67 (FOW: 118/1) It's been a good week...

    OD - Week 4

    BGS XI v ShrimperZone CC A decent outfit but we have the edge on BTR and also our bowlers are fighting fit. Bit of a reshuffle in the batting order as Sini, Chandra and Charlie are all tired after their epic batting efforts yesterday so Alvardo went to open - and failed dismally. Flat pitch...

    Roscoe Dsane

    Dsane had joined Ryman League Division One South outfit Merstham after a chance meeting with Boss Andy Martin who was Roscoe's team mate at Palace. Dsane was last seen in football helping Torquay get back into league 2, but he was not offered a new contract after their promotion season. The 30...

    What i have heard.....

    I heard some interesting things away at oxford. Granty is going. He wants a higher level of football and clubs are interested and currently negitiating a move of around 150k to a league 1 outfit. Paul sturrock is very close friends with both harry redknapp and sir alex and both of which have...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Port Vale.

    Well match day is upon us yet again. Whilst most of the talk has been about Tilly's pay off and Sturrocks need for a striker , its been a strange week of relative quiet on the zone . This has been slow news week that is for sure. There has even been talk that V festival will affect southend...
  7. Luggy as a player

    Apologies if this has been done before but does anyone have any memories of Paul Sturrock as a player? I can vaguely remember enjoying on TV Dundee United's forays into Europe in the early 1980s and I recall him being a part of that outfit. Anyone know whether he featured in their famous win...
  8. Ref for Saturday

    Iain Williamson Refereed our game against Telford in Nov 2008 Can't find much info on how he did last season but in season 08/09 he reffed 30 games and gave 138 yelllows and 6 reds. Some cracking comments from all round country who think he is amongst the worst they have ever seen (I thought...

    England under 21's in September

    A weird kickoff time but cheap enough if you fancy seeing a few prem stars at the WHCS http://www.cu-fc.com/page/News/0,,10424~2100655,00.html U's Flash: Club Host England's Crucial Clash Posted on: Fri 23 Jul 2010 Colchester United's Weston Homes Community Stadium has been named as the...

    Bath City 0 Exeter City 4 (Logan 8, Dunne 68, Watson 81, 87) Bath City were well beaten by an impressive Exeter City outfit at Twerton Park tonight. Adie Britton's men struggled to impose themselves against Football League opposition, who looked more comfortable on the ball and a more cohesive...
  11. Brazil vs Bad Korea

    Entertaining game, Bad Korea look a well organised outfit and deserved to go into the break 0-0. Brazil finally opened them up with a fluke by Maicon and a great pass by Robinho to tee up Elano. Korea pulled one back with arguably the best goal of the night. However, how gash was Kaka tonight...
  12. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...
  13. Blackpool Must Remain Frugal While Aboard the Gravy Train

    The moment that the seasoned Brett Ormerod poked home Blackpool’s winner against Cardiff City in the 43rd minute will no doubt go down in the history of the club and town, but it stands to reason that the club now has an important decision to make in its history. Ian Holloway, the charismatic...
  14. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    This will be a sell out!!! :stunned:

    Chester City face expulsion.

    Surprised not to have seen this posted anywhere. Maybe it is and I've missed it. Its not looking good for the club:- Chester City face expulsion from the Football Conference The Football Conference Board has confirmed it will recommend to its member clubs that Chester City be expelled from...

    New leagues are up

    FC - III.1 We inherit AFC Wimbledon coming downwards which is a bonus as he's just a farm team for international players now. Two teams coming up look manageable. Should be able to go for promotion. OD - II.1 Parkway lost their play off against Phils Hotspurs so remain in the division...

    Under 18's Match Report Youths beat Dagenham & Redbridge 3-2 Away

    Southend United’s Under-18 team signed off for 2009 with their 18th win in just 25 matches after overcoming a spirited Dagenham & Redbridge outfit to record a 3-2 victory. Rob Craven's Match Report can be found by clicking here.
  19. Benitez must Battle from the Brink

    Every season after a run of mediocre performances or defeats, some over excited journalist will question one of the big four's title crudentials and, quite rightly, they'll be chastised for doing so. This season, however, Liverpool's season really could be over by this time next weekend. A...

    Slithering To The Brink

    The swelling band of English football clubs in crisis has a new member and it's my own team, Southend United. Late on Monday night, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HRMC) cancelled a planned Winding Up Petition and elected to pursue an Administration instead. Put simply, the club were flicked...
