    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...
  2. What do you want from a wide man?

    I cant believe all of the stick that Scannell gets from some people on here, the guy came off the bench today and assisted in the scoring of both of our goals, he was also instrumental in our second half comeback against Hartlepool a few weeks ago and was probably our best player going forward...

  5. Hands Up Who Paid for That...

    I'll admit it. I paid the full £14 to watch 76 seconds of boxing last night. I was fooled by a Jewish New Yorker who talked a good game, but failed to mark his words with any kind of action. After taking two attempts and a stripping to make the 10 stone weight limit, Dmitriy Salita informed a...
  6. Southend Airport threat to Blenheim school

    According to an article in today's Echo (so must be true) my old primary school is threatened with closure if Southend Airport gets any busier as its under the flightpath. http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/4775511.Updated__Southend_Airport__a_threat_to_Blenheim_School_/?ref=mr The LibDem...

    Pops - 0310 (or lack of them)

    Jeezus this is getting silly I have 3 trainees with FOUR nets I need freeing up, 1 for a new trainee when I get or pull him. 1 last popped on 14th May - I know he is now 24 but that cannot be right Another just turned 23 and his last pop was on 9th July The other 2 nets are 1 primary + 1...
  8. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...

    All I got was this Shafiq Alimuddin - 22 yo, BT Rating=26,646 RH Batsman, RM Bowler. He is a cautious player with abysmal leadership skills and respectable experience. He currently has superb batting form, superb bowling form and invigorated fitness. Stamina: respectable Wicket Keeping...
  10. Ref Watch Walsall away

    Man in charge at Walsall will be primary school headteacher from Horsforth near Leeds, Jon Moss. In his 5th season as a League referee, he has only refereed Southend once before - last season's 3-0 defeat at Hartlepool when Adam Barratt was sent off. A reasonably highly rated official who gets...

    Terry's Disingenuous Pledge

    If you ever wanted to capture the essence of modern football in just one page, you could do a lot worse than paying a visit to Chelsea's website. Here, behind the splash of adverts for a new kit that looks more like a women's cycling top than a football jersey, you will find John Terry's...

    Droooooooooooooo

    15th July Following on from last week, when Tom Pope went to East Dene Primary School to help promote healthy eating, this week, striker, Drewe Broughton has been to Dalton Listerdale Junior and Infant School to open a newly completed study area. 'It was strange how I got involved,' Drewe told...

    A little help...

    I am currently compiling my evidence for my Critical Research Study for my A2 media studies. My topic is to look into the representation of football and its fans across a range of media, and I have a brief questionnaire below which I need approximately 10-20 responses to. So if you've got a...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

    Pops - 16/5

    Both primary pops round the corner. Next season they will probably drop to one batting net each with a fielding net rotated to free up nets for my all rounder project. Will also allow them to play a more active part as they've usually been unfit this season, can move up the order to take the...

    Haven't seen this anywhere else yet...... Chairman's Blog What a good day Saturday was and with nothing to play for I thought that the team performed well and remained committed to the cause right to the end. It was also a day to celebrate the success of the Club’s youth policy which, I...
