    Did I Spot Our Man In Penzance

    For the last two weeks I have been lurking in Cornwall with the wife and kids. Now for someone who has been going down that neck of the woods for 30+ years you might have thought I would have pretty much covered the lot but nope, I doubt I have even scratched the surface. One of the places I...
  3. Four into three won't go (aka how confident are you today?)

    Us and Crawley have been in the top two for most of the season but Cheltenham have been chasing hard and don't appear to be letting up. Of the chasing pack, Swindon are on great form and look poised to take advantage of any slip up from one of the top three. Shrewsbury are only a point behind...

    Scudamore Is A Mad Fool

    I hope you’ll ignore the sheen of cold sweat across my face today. I’m not ill, I’ve just been reading those interviews with Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore. It was a most disconcerting experience, rather like jumping into a cab and realising, as the engine roars and the locks...

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/local_news/southend/3826051.Eddie_Stobart_poised_to_buy_Southend_Airport/ I had a feeling he would be the man who buys it as he has been flying in and out for the past 4 months. Now lets hope he gives me a pay rise ;)

    Avram Grant’s so-called press conference

    When I saw the transcript of Avram Grant’s so-called press conference I wondered what all the fuss was about. That’s what he’s always like. Not for nothing does he always dress in black. Every Chelsea game I’ve covered this season, and for my sins there have been many, he shuffles into the room...

    I am so angry with Tilson on three counts of very poor judgement!

    Letting goal machine Hooper out, unforgivable! Replacing Hammel with a bloke that can't defend, Mulgrew, unforgivable! Bringing in a target man that can't jump, not mobile and a poor first touch, Revell, unforgivable! 3 Blatant managerial mistakes that will spoil our season in a crap league...

    I just don't like Steve

    A little bit controversial this week.... "This is how it feels to be an England supporter right now. Everything's gone horribly wrong and the only way out seems to be through self-destruction. We've had some happy times wearing Three Lions on our shirts, but it seems like an awfully long time...

    Ever since the Spurs game on Saturday there is something niggling at the back of my mind that make me feel.....well.......a bit dirty.

  20. Agogo Move on?

    News of the Screws reports today that Junior Agogo is poised to join an unnamed Championship side this week. After a bid failed in January, could this be us renewing an interest? The timeline seems to fit. With the Bermuda trip starting on Tuesday, Tilson wanted to bring in new faces before it...
