    Clough and Ready

    He didn't pick the team, he didn't give the teamtalk and he didn't mastermind the tactics, but the mere presence of new manager Nigel Clough at Pride Park seemed to inspire Derby County to an unlikely, but fully deserved victory over Manchester United. Clough may be following in his famous...

    The woman selling the scarves down Southend High Street today...

    I saw some woman down Southend High Street hawking some really shoddy scarves today to mark the "historic" Chelsea game. Please don't tell me this was official club merchandise as I seem to have saw 2 police officers turning a blind eye and letting her hawk what I can only describe as complete...

  6. Question Question for the chemists

    Ok, I've just put some rice on the boil for dinner with my left over chilli, but I've just had a thought. When you add salt to water does it; a) Lower the boiling point of water so it boils quicker? b) Raise the boiling point so the food cooks quicker? I know it's hard to believe but I...

    Scolari Still Not Happy

    Under ordinary circumstances with an ordinary manager, a 4-0 victory in the Champions League might be considered worthy of celebration. However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that Luiz Felipe Scolari is very far from ordinary. "We did not play very well," he complained afterwards. "We made...

    Life In The A-League

    Before I headed off to Oz I said I'd write a regular blog about what it's like supporting a team on the other side of the world. Here is my first effort by way of an introduction to the Queensland Roar - Queensland Roar vs Adelaide United – 24th August 2008 Come On! Imagine this scenario...

    Why loans are so crucial

    Reading a few messages in the past, it seems that svereal posters don't fully understand the loan system and how it is so crucial for a club like ours. In the dim and distant past, sending a player out on loan practically signalled the end for him at that particular club. The same can be said...

    Crewe vs SUFC - 6 HOURS TO CREWE Apologies for the lateness of this report, unfortunately my laptop decided to pack up at the most inconvenient time possible.

    Back from Gresty....

    ... and what a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon it was too! I thought the first half performance was the best 45 minutes football Southend have played for a long, long time... certainly the best this season. They were 1st to every ball, never allowed Crewe a second on the ball, were a yard...

    The fbm report - Walsall

    BLUES GO FOURTH AFTER SADDLERS STROLL Well, stroll might be too strong a word for what on paper was only a 1-0 victory but in reality Southend put on their best and most entertaining performance for many weeks as they totally dominated Walsall at Roots Hall today. The fact that the scoreline...

    Nicky Bailey.

    Right, I didn't go last night, and want to keep away from the doom and gloom of the result and apparent performance. But remember we are 4 points off the play off with a game in hand. Anyways, onto the subject. How good is Nicky Bailey. The boy impresses me even more everytime I see him. No...

    Seeing as its been a while since I did these and, for a change, I'm not doing the slightly arduous 2 hour journey home, I thought I might put up my thoughts on today's game. All in all, we weren't really that bad overall. Oldham succeeded where many other clubs have failed in the past and...

    Boycott the Beauty Cup!!!

    Long deliberation went into the format for the next Totty Cup and suddenly an imposter appears! With the Oceanic qualifiers due to begin this week any results garnered in this latest incarnation should be dismissed quicker then England's middle order! PIRACY IS A CRIME!

    Who needs JCR??

    Gotta say getting rid of Jamal could be the move that turns our season around. Last night the way we moved the ball from front to back was actually quicker without our quickest player! The crosses that went in were excellent and dangerous all evening especially Tommy Blacks. We had players in...
