    Facts , A bit of help please

    The title of another thread , being factual, made me wonder about what is acceptable on this forum, or any other for that matter, regarding facts. I am , by nature , pedantic, often to the point of distraction. My wife often says that I am borderline OCD when it comes to facts and details, as I...
  3. Ref Watch ...... Wycombe (short ref alert!)

    Tomorrow night the officials are largely as per the original appointments which means we have Andy Woolmer from Northampton. He is a very short referee with even shorter hair and, as shorter officials sometimes do, he has the capacity to be slightly officious. Okay, not slightly but very...
  4. Clear desk policy

    Came in the morning to find all my work papers I left last night, plus my personal photo of me & Mrs MK dumped on my chair in what is apparantly a "clear desk policy"...i.e making sure your desk is clear after hours. Seeing as half of the office has gone home or is going home when I leave and...
  5. Ref Watch ...... Wycombe (short ref alert)

    On Saturday, weather permitting, we have Andy Woolmer from Northampton. He is a very short referee with even shorter hair and, as shorter officials sometimes do, he has the capacity to be slightly officious. Okay, not slightly but very officious; picky and pedantic spring to mind too. He is in...
  6. Ref Watch ....... Crewe (short referee alert !)

    On Saturday we have Andy Woolmer from Northampton. He is a very short referee with even shorter hair and, as shorter officials sometimes do, he has the capacity to be slightly officious. Okay, not slightly but very officious; picky and pedantic spring to mind too. He is in his 7th year as a...
  7. My Observations

    Being at Uni, my only Southend outing since September was Forest away which wasn't a particularly good performance aside from Leon's red card, but my obersvations today were: No creativity Without Bailey/Gower, we really are incredibly uncreative. Black gets dragged in too central, Maher has...

    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...

    The fbm view and ratings

    As is usual when the game is on Sky, I won't bother with the match report as such, but just a couple of points and then the ratings. Firstly it is hugely disappointing to be off colour in front of the cameras AGAIN.  Our third 3-0 home defeat out of 4 (after the televised games against Luton...

    Kenny Brown

    Just returned from watching CD Jávea train and spent a couple of hours in the company of Kenny Brown, who made six appearances for the Shrimpers in 1996, on loan from West Ham United. He's about to become the new Director of Football at CD Jávea after a couple of years involvement with FC...

    Sky Sports Web Site

    Thought you all might like to see an email I have sent Sky Sports:- Hi, I have a seemingly pedantic point for you. The Southend United Club badge you use is not the correct one. There are a number of reasons why this badge should not be used:- 1. It does not have a shrimp on it. As you know...
