    The Gathering Storm

    Imagine the padlocks clinking shut around the Shankly Gates, or the bailiffs moving in at Old Trafford. Imagine half the Premier League collapsing into administration and tumbling down into the lower leagues. According to reports this weekend, it's not as surreal a scenario as you might think...

    Slipperduke's Official FM2008 Challenge

    Hello there, I'm Ernst von Slipperduke and welcome to my lair. I come with a challenge for anyone who thinks they might be a bit good at Football Manager 2008, that infamous thief of time. It's always struck me that Football Manager challenges can be a little flawed. It's all very well saying...

    Chelsea scramble through

    Chelsea scrambled into the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Zico's Fenerbahce that was anything but comfortable, either for the club or for those unfortunate enough to be watching. The continual criticism of their minimalist style of football can be tedious, but you...

    Front page articles

    Seeing TMWLT's (rather oblique) thread about Rochdale got me thinking. Following the popularity of canveyshrimper's excellent piece on a Gillingham away trip from the (18)70s it's be great to have some more such tales up on the site. Or indeed anything Southend related! If you've got something...

    Excellent News

    Here's hoping 2008 becomes the year of the celebrity comeuppance! Although it will have to go some if it carries on in this vein, an excellent start to the New Year, IMHO! :p

    If You Can't Beat Them...

    The appointment of Fabio Capello as the new England boss is good news for the long suffering fans, but a sad indictment of the present standard of English football managers. At least when Sven Goran Eriksson was appointed, Roy Hodgson was in contention. This time round there wasn't a single...

    Metal Monday Pt.3

    For this weeks song, we can thank BLUEBLOOD for his request. Formed in 1983 following Dave Mustaine's exit from Metallica, Megadeth have gone through many line-up changes but have never wained in terms of musicianship and popularity, especially in Germany where many of their albums have gone...

    One to Start the Weekend (Week 35)

    Hi Chaps and Chapesses This weeks 12stw takes us back to 1996, and to a track that is a must for any dance fan. Despite its popularity and longevity as a classic, this tune only reached number 3 back in the day. The 3 members of this act, Maxi Jazz, Sister Bliss and Rollo, wouldn't sound out...
