    Who goes? YOU decide

    As I've posted in another thread, if either Tilson or Martin had to got TODAY, who would you prefer - considering all the implications that would go with their leaving would mean, I dont just mean they vanished off the face of the earth and everything would be rosey. TILSON: Legend at the club...
  2. Hayemaker Fires His Warning Shots

    With his majority decision victory over Nikolai Valuev, David Haye duly delivered what he had promised, a shock to the system of the heavy weight division and a special warning shot to the Brothers Klitschko. He's cleaning this division of the rubbish that has populated it of late, and the...

    National Athems

    Obviously our own one moves me but is there any others that make you feel as if you would want to adopt it. I really like the Russian one personally. Anyone else. By the way, I'm not suggesting a change in ours I'm just wondering if any others would make your playlist.

    Clocks go back tonight

    Don't forget to put your clocks back tonight. I am now going to hibernate until April, when I wake up we'll be top of the table, the new stadium is well under way and an eccentric Russian Oligarch has invested millions of his fortune to ensure his dream of seeing Southend in the Premier League...

  6. ESB's Champions League Run Down

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...

    Question Has Ron gambled and lost with the future of SUFC??

    Reading some of the threads coming out over the last 24 hours and the ongoing snippets we've been hearing, does anyone think that Ron - perhaps victim of circumstance more than anything - has played Russian Roulette with the clubs future and found the barrell was loaded? Worrying rumours...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Taxing Times For EPL

    Have you noticed anything strange about this transfer window? Usually by this stage of the summer the Premier League is awash with new superstars from every corner of the planet, all clutching whopping great contracts and glibly swearing their allegiance to the cause, but with the exception of...
  11. Shrimper


    I was looking on 606 and an amusing topic came up with Southend United russian dolls in Prague. I noticed that OBL and Upminster Shrimper replied to it but what i'd like to know is where abouts in Prague do you get them as i'm going on holiday this friday to Prague and would like to buy one...

    Success? No Chance

    At opposite ends of the country, two ill-fated and short-lived eras are coming to an end. In East London, the unintentionally hilarious reign of Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson is already over. In Newcastle, Mike Ashley has desperately slapped a GBP100m price tag on the front of St James Park in the hope...

    Who Would You Be? Bill or Roman?

    Who would you rather be this summer? Multi-billionaire owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich or reasonably wealthy owner of Everton, Bill Kenwright. Think carefully before you choose, there's more to this than meets the eye. Kenwright may have left Wembley empty-handed on Saturday night, but at...

    Adebayor Needs Arsenal

    Do you think Emmanuel Adebayor realises that he may have brought all this upon himself? It always amazes me when footballers stand in front of the cameras and tell the world that their manager must start spending money on better players. They never seem to comprehend, even for a moment, that...
  15. Mad Cyril


    Is it just me or are these not as good as they used to be? I have a bag I purchased from Waitrose yesterday and every second one seems to lack flavour. It's not like they are cheap either. You are effectively playing Russian roulette these days every time you venture into the fruit aisle.

    The Fall of Roman's Empire?

    The rumours that Roman Abramovich is attempting to sell Chelsea may have been quickly denied by the club, but when you stack up the numbers, it's all too plausible. Stamford Bridge has been a black hole for the Russian oligarch's cash and, in a year when he's lost so much money elsewhere, it...

    You're definitely in charge Dmitry

    Just read this in an article about Russian support for their leadership over the gas standoff: Made me laugh anyway!
  18. I hate losing ....

    especially to a load of over paid ***** from a flash club owned by a Russian ...... can't stand the patronising bollox - basically am ready to slap anyone who comes near me today and do not want to have anything more to do with football for a while ... don't want to read the papers - don't...
  19. Song for saturday

    To the tune of the entertainer "Hollow hollow hollow, Chelsea's success is :censored: hollow All the money you took from that big Russian crook But you won't beat the boy's from Roots Hall " :support: and repeat drunkenly for 20 minutes :support:
