He was one of my early hero's who joined Southend from Raith Rovers as an inside left. It was however when he switched to outside left that he became a real crowd favourite. His nickname...

    Question Is relegation a fair price to pay for having a new stadium?

    As I'm usually not very quick off the mark and plus the fact that I will be away for a week, from the evening of the Brentford game........I thought that I would get in first! I believe that in the next couple of weeks we are going to have a bitter- sweet pill to swallow. There will be much...

    J.D. Salinger

    He'd been a recluse for many years and so hadn't been part of the 'public' world for a long time, if ever he had been. I still felt a tinge of sadness hearing the news that he'd died last night at the age of 91, of 'natural causes.' I guess for many people 'The Catcher In The Rye' is one of...

    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...

    United Blow Their Chance

    Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United Eto'o 10 Messi 70 He may have mellowed with age, enough at least to allow the dignitaries to slip a runners-up medal over his head while still smiling warmly, but Sir Alex Ferguson must be furious with the way that this Champions League final was allowed to...

  15. Gutted beyond words

    I had to have a job finished by end of the day in Bracknell yesterday and as a result couldn't get to the game. On top of that there was an accident on the M25 and at one point it looked like I wouldn't even get back to see it on TV. A mate accepted my ticket with absolute shock and disbelief...

    Bye Bye Thaksin

    Everyone expects a rush of transfer activity on deadline day, but even the most seasoned of observers would have been surprised to see an entire football club change hands yesterday. Only Manchester City could provide such drama, but the joy felt by its supporters today is tinged with sadness...

    Joey Barton

    There is little in this world as infuriating as the sight of a young man, guilty of vicious assault, walking away from a courtroom with just a suspended sentence. There is anger at the clemency, fury at the perception that justice has failed. In the case of Joey Barton, however, there is just an...

  19. P.m.a.

    It is difficult for me living so far away to feel that I am involved with the club that I love so much and I sometimes feel detached from sharing and experiencing the joys and the sadness that have been experienced by so many blues fans this season. Of course SZ does help folk like me and other...

    Best national anthem

    A post by ORM has spurred me for a vote. When I was a kid, there was an arcade game, that played your national anthem, depending on which country you represented. I always loved Japan for some reason. Now some anthems are absolutely bonkers. But what's your favourite? Let's look at some...
