    Your Non-football sporting hero?

    We were discussing at work our sporting heroes and it was pretty much all footballers and from the clubs we support, which was a bit boring and predictable. So then we changed it to "non-football" and it was really quite interesting. So lets hear your non-football sporting heroes and the reason...
  3. Ticket Prices

    Hi guys, I'm focusing my research project on ticket prices in English football and to see how commercialisation of English football affects supporters in attending live football matches. May interest you that the Premier League (95%) has a higher attendance utilisation than Germany (90%)...

    Premier League and European Prediction Leagues

    First of all many thanks for the appreciation shown for the PL on another thread and clearly some really enjoy the prediction Leagues. It is very time consuming but I now have the best job in the world (retirement) so I have the time and when working statistics was always a big part of my day so...
  5. Chelmsford City striker Scott Fenwick

    Last week the Chelmsford striker scored three penalties in two successive games, must be a record to get two hat tricks of spot kicks one game after another. Deserves to get a mention on Sky Sports, would make a change from their obsession with the Premier League.

    Too much football over Christmas?

    There's been a lot of talk over the last week about the festive fixture schedule and whether we play too much football in this country, with managers complaining, particularly those from the top Premier League clubs (who ironically have the biggest squads). I do have some sympathy with them...
  12. Saturday Night Games.

    Just read that from the 2019/2020 season, the Premier league will begin a new fixture of a 19:45 kick off time on a Saturday night. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42278119 My question is, if the EFL introduced this fixture also, would you be for or against it? I would imagine it would...

    Approaching the halfway point of the season

    With the half way point of the season approaching, I thought it would be good to gauge some opinion on the season so far. We currently lie in 14th spot on 25 points. Having played 19 games we have scored just 22 goals and conceding 29. People may say we have been unlucky with injuries...

    Premier League vote to close transfer window earlier

    Wouldnt affect us just yet as PL only, but surely the EFL will follow suit. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/11024203/premier-league-clubs-vote-to-close-transfer-window-before-season-starts

  20. Southend Utd - 15th Best Team Over 3 Seasons

    Another table , that looks pleasing on the eye. 15th place would put us in comparison to where Swansea finished in the Premier League. Overall a better team than Man Utd (again) & Liverpool. :happy: :thumbsup:
