    Essex FA

    The U14 football team my son plays for had a game abandoned by the ref in late November 8 minutes before the end of the game because the opposition manger threatened the ref and the ref wasn't going to accept being threatened. We all heard the manager threaten the ref so we know it happened...
  2. England vs Pakistan

    Here's a little quiz: Who are these former England players, none of whom have ruled themselves out of England duty (so no Tresco, 671 @ 44.73 or Trott, 817 @ 74.27 since you ask), and their first class records this year? Player A: 468 runs @ 42.54 Player B: 609 runs @ 55.36 Player C: 665...
  3. Under 21 European Championships

    Started last night and England play their first game tonight against Portugal. Shame that Berahino has been ruled out of the tournament, but his replacement, Benik Afobe, has had a brilliant season and will be interesting to see how he does.
  4. Pre-Match Thread Bury vs Southend United

    Nervous already. We need to play our best 11. That means Corr and maybe Worrall.
  5. Wimbledon goalie

    Celtic Reinstated

    Absolute joke. They lose 6-1 on aggregate and their opponents field an ineligible player for 2 minutes of the second leg and so Celtic are given a '3-0 walkover' after losing the actual game 2-0. This allows Celtic through on away goals! There was a precedent set for this which is a very...

    Breaking News Luke Prosser ruled out for Newport

    @CJPhillips1982: Luke Prosser suffered a fractured cheekbone and concussion against Dagenham. He's out of the game tomorrow. @SUFCRootsHall @Essex_Echo Huge blow to lose him.

    Would you stab baby Hitler?

    Louis Theroux tweeted this question a few days ago and we had a massive discussion about it today... If you want to read a bit more about the initial story see here: http://talkingdonkeyre.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/stabbing-baby-hitler.html Our final conclusion was that we would try to alter...

    Why my day at wembley was magical

    Ok here goes, in reply to the quite frankly OTT reaction to losing a cup final we had done amazingly well to get to let alone win the thing and some seemingly deflated people who had ridiculous expectations of the day. Awoken at 7:30 by my Dad banging on the front door singing wembleeeee...
  15. German court bans circumcision

    Ignoring the 'Jews oppressed in Germany' angle, this is a pretty major story IMO and it hasn't really been picked up over here. http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/06/27/us-germany-circumcision-idUKBRE85Q19Y20120627 "It ruled involuntary religious circumcision should be made illegal because it...

    This is a tough one

    A High Court judge has ruled that a brain-damaged woman should not be allowed to die, in what is being seen as a landmark case. The woman, who is 52 and can be referred to only as M, is in what is known as a "minimally conscious state". Her family argued she was in pain and that artificial...

    Blues Youths reach Youth Alliance Cup Area Final

    Southend United's Under-18 side responded to Monday's FA Youth Cup Fifth Round defeat at Anfield today in perfect fashion by defeating Stevenage on penalties at Boots & Laces.
