  1. Blues fans shun FA Cup

    The Times produced a League table yesterday, based on crowd attendances and the number of changes made to the starting XI, re FA Cup games played over the last 10 years. Out of the 106 clubs featured, we were ranked 43th overall. We were 63rd when it came to attendances - our average FA Cup...

  4. If we had beaten Brentford.....

    When would the tickets had gone on sale, after yesterdays game was called off on Friday? Yesterday morning or today?. Either way, reckon there would have been disasters. Had it been yesterday in those freezing temps, some fans would have probably got hyperthermia!. Had it been today as the snow...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-0 Yeovil Town

    Southend United 0 Yeovil Town 0 Well, what a waste of an afternoon that was. Nathan Jones gave us more entertainment than anything that actually happened on the pitch. The players have given up the fight it seems on that showing, so League Two will surely follow. Some questionable tactics again...

    A Pig 36 Hours

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...

    Colin Murphy

    reading OSM yesterday, about Bill Shankly. When he retired, he was addicted to football, he was shunned by Liverpool, but still played five-a-side down the park, still coached kids, etc. When Derby were looking for a manager, he was favourite to be picked as manager. The choice however went to...

    Managing Newcastle Isn't A Game

    There is a computer game in existence that, I’m afraid to admit, has cost me around 15 years of my life. It’s called Football Manager and I’ve owned every incarnation of it since 1993. It’s a wonderful way to waste time, it really is. You pick your club, assemble your players, choose a formation...

    They don't do it in Germany, they've long since given it up in Spain and the French would be astonished if you suggested that they should give it a try. The Christmas football fixture list is a curiously British and Irish disease. With almost every other civilised nation doing the sensible...

    Boss: Let's get back to work Sir Alex Ferguson insists United will respond in the right manner after their shock Carling Cup exit at Southend. Not for the first time in his 20 years at Old Trafford, the manager will have to keep his head while all those around him - in the press, at least -...
