  1. Opposition Watch...Mansfield Town

    MANSFIELD Town yesterday signed striker James Alabi on loan from Stoke City. 18 year old Alabi goes straight into the squad for tonight's game. He is yet to appear for the Potters' first team and spent time on loan at Scunthorpe last season, scoring once in 9 substitute appearances. He has also...

    if you could pick any manager-

    And they don't have to be football related' For example I would pick ricky gervais but in character as David brent.Great motivator and a good dance for Blues christmas party. As assistant I would have Karl Pilkington to keep players feet on the ground.
  3. Anthony Pilkington

    Apparently he suffered an absolutely horrendous ankle injury tonight in Huddersfield's win against Rochdale. Local news was saying that both sets of team were really shocked by it, and team mates reduced to tears. I hope it's not career-ending, but a real shame as I always thought he was a class...
  4. 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...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    Huddersfield splashing the cash

    Huddersfield have just signed Lionel Ainsworth and Anthony Pilkington for undisclosed fees, but will probably total over £1m. Pilkington was rumoured to be on his way to Preston for £600,000 or so and Ainsworth was also attracting Championship interest. They must have really flung the cash at...

    The disallowed "goal" v Mansfield

    Having looked again on Blues World it appears to have been disallowed for the ball going out of play. The linesman has his flag out horizontally, meaning a goal kick. Gray had to head it - I don't think he would have reached it with his feet. It was a full length diving header. Anyhow...
