    The fbm views and ratings

    Due to formatting problems the report isn't yet on the front page so here it is BLUES LAND TITLE IN ESSEX ONE-TWO The two Essex sides defied all the odds in League One by claiming both automatic promotion spots – with the Super Shrimpers deservedly landing the title. In fact, it was...

    Davison v Cudicini: Experience and games (AD) vs. talent on the bench (CC). Will lack of games count against Cudicini? Can AD overcome (and atone for?) his FA Cup howler against Blackburn? Verdict: draw Duguid v Robben: Will Col******r's erstwhile club captain ever face a sterner test...

    The Ant & The Grasshopper...

    CLASSIC VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The shivering grasshopper has no...
  5. Come on guys lets be honest!

    I have waded through all 29,or was it 30 pages, about the fight and tried desperately hard to reply yesterday. I am appalled at how so many of you are quick to slur the names of a nice bunch of lads just because of their association with Ginge and his son due to the trouble on Saturday. Let's...
  6. A Quiet Snooze? Or the Excitement of the Chatroom?

    The Cup Distraction

    SZ Challenge Cup Update

    Well it seems that there have been a few interesting matches. In QF1 Southend-United won the tie, but where holding on in the 2nd half, they had stormed to a 4-0 lead after just 27mins, but after that Southend United clawed back 3 goals but just run out of time. QF2 saw FC Gambero dominate the...
  9. Is Tilson our best manager ever?

    Dave Webb is still our best ever manager but Tilson is closing in as the greatest. I think if Tilson gets us promotion this year it would be a greater achievement than going up to the old 2nd Division. He took over last year with the club in a total mess and in real danger of going out of the...

    Tickets and the club Shop?

    Have spent the last two days on and off the phone trying to purchase my LDV tickets before the seaso's lose their seats. I am either put on an endless loop of prerecrded advertisement telling me to buy tickets...I'M TRYING !!!, or was told to ring back later. Then Was told...
  11. Kevin Maher

    After speaking to somebody who went on Saturday,who said the two bookings were harsh, I have come to the opinion that Kevin opens his mouth too much. If you were a ref and you had Kev mouthing off to you all match you are not going to favor him in many decisions, in fact you would be watching...
