    ...and we moan about going to Carlisle...

    In Russia, , FC Luch-Energiya are based in Vladivostok, a mere 12-hour flight from Zenit St Petersburg. Three Zenit fans embarked on the frankly ludicrous 5,963-mile road-trip to the east coast of Russia in 2006, only for the car to break down before they could make their return journey. Zenit...
  2. Contract,what contract

    So the WBA forward may go on strike after Albion snubbed the Spurs bids. Jesus,these players ain't got a clue,reportedly on a non shabby 30k a week yet not satisfied. Will Albion let him rot in the reserves? Probably not,but he has burnt many bridges with his tantrum.

    Phil brown, does he risk becoming damaged goods?

    I'm not a great believer in chopping and changing managers and I was willing to give Paul Sturrock another season, even though I accepted that his brand and style of football was not universally appreciated. In the end players and managers come and go, Southend United is, hopefully, eternal and...
  4. Rhys Murphy

    I work with a Daggers fan and he's just told me that Peterborough have reportedly agreed a fee with them for Rhys Murphy. He reckons it would probably be around the £400k mark. Worth noting as he'd probably be gone by the time we play them next Tuesday if that's the case. Seems a bit of a...

    Laugh. Out. Loud

    Thats quite funny. It ends with "Chief of police in Hvolsvöllur Sveinn K. Rúnarsson told mbl.is that the woman simply "had no idea that she was missing.

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Freddy Eastwood

    With Freddy there's only one place to start: has there ever been a better debut? I very much doubt it, and I include fiction in that. Scoring after just 7.7 seconds of your professional debut against the top of the table team before going onto complete your hattrick is the type of story that...

    Lance Armstrong

    Floyd Landis..... Tyler Hamilton..... even reportedly George Hincapie according to CBS. The list of former team-mates now lining up to speak out about PEDal power seems to be growing. Armstrong's denials appear to be not that of innocence, but only that he's never failed a test. The UCI can't...
  9. Coulson Offers Resignation

    Andy Coulson has reportedly offered his resignation in the wake of the phone-tap scandal, according to a few sources on Twitter. I have to say, that's a pretty big score for the Guardian, who pushed their investigation in spite of News Corp. attempting to silence it. EDIT: Instead of offering...

    Spanish Football is in trouble..

    The death knell of Spanish Football as we know it is sounding. The rampaging bulls of Barcelona are over-taking the now wounded lion of Madrid in an attempt to show dominance not just in Spain, but in Europe as well. With the capture of David Villa for around £34.2million the sands of power are...
  11. Real Outclassed in El Clasico to Forget

    Lionel Messi and Pedro Rodriguez sealed a dominant win for Barcelona in El Clasico, seemingly deciding the La Liga title race as Real were left out thought, out fought and out classed. This will, by no means, go down in history as an El Clasico to remember. Barcelona entered the contest coming...

    <Robert Booth guardian.co.uk, Friday 15 January 2010 19.20 GMT Article historyReports of racial and religiously motivated crime rose following the election of British National party councillors in several far- right strongholds, police statistics have revealed. Complaints of hate crime...
  13. Breaking News Shrimpers face yet ANOTHER tax dispute

    Southend United face yet ANOTHER winding up petition after reportedly withholding £200,000 from their November and December PAYE submissions to the taxman. In November, the Blues narrowly avoided going into administration following the payment of £2.1m owed to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs...

    Norwich in the race for Barnard

    Found this on another forum I post on: Norwich City boss Paul Lambert could be poised to enter the New Year transfer window race for Southend's League One hotshot Lee Barnard. City's League One rival's are reportedly ready to off load the £250,000-rated 17-goal striker, who is stalling on a...

    Button to McLaren

    Deal done, Kimi Raikkonen has also left F1 to take up rallying (reportedly getting $20 million NOT to race to Ferrari in 2010 - nice job if you can get it)
  16. Essex Sen Cup - how did the legend that is Tilson do ?

    Sir Steve - unbelievable move Sir Steve - played in the Senior cup with the yoofs (reportedly) anyone knows how they (he got on)? and what a response to the current situation - went and put on a shirt - any news ?

    Madrid Break The Bank... Again

    Reportedly siging Benzema for the best part of 30million. Forgive me, I appear to have overslept by several years or so, but is there not a worldwide recession on?! If this goes through that'll be the best part of 250million euros spent! On three players!

    Alonso Attracts Attention

    Spain 5-0 New Zealand Torres 6, 14, 16 Fabregas 24 Villa 48 Rafa Benitez must be getting nervous. Real Madrid's moneybags President Florentino Perez has reportedly set his sights on Xabi Alonso and, after his performance in this dominant victory over New Zealand, you can hardly blame him. The...

    Crazy Rooney Needed Telling

    Thank goodness that someone has finally said it. Fabio Capello's denunciation of Wayne Rooney as, "a crazy man," might be the best thing that has ever happened to him. A humiliating public dressing down for the lack of discipline that still prevents him from being a truly 'world class' player...

    Fabregas' gob

    Fabregas is an excellent player, but... if this is true about him spitting at the feet of Brian Horton, then I hope he gets a 5 match ban. He was reportedly a central figure in "Pizzagate" and also chose to insult Mark Hughes a couple of years or so ago when Blackburn played Arsenal in the FA...
