  1. Ref Watch ..... Walsall A

    Saturday's referee is a bald man from the armed forces, which will not please everybody! However he's not the worst example of that ilk (damned with faint praise?). Man in charge will be 46 year old, Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. A sergeant in the RAF, on the human resources side, he...
  2. Bans for Simulation, Safe Standing and Ryan Leonard

    Hi all, we have just released our latest podcast and we cover a lot in this one including Ryan Leonard wonderful winner plus bans for simulation, safe standing and more. http://d3d4football.com/d3d4-football-podcast-episode-15-week-14-15-review/ If anyone would like to be our Southend...
  3. Ref Watch ....... Gillingham H 2 of 2

    Tomorrow's referee is Tim Robinson from Bognor Regis. He is one of the 18 referees who comprise SG2, full-time referees operating predominantly in the Championship and, in my opinion, is rather fortunate to be doing this for a living. He is in his fifth season as a League referee and had been...
  4. Ref Watch .... Chesterfield H

    Chesterfield's last two trips to Roots Hall finished 3-0 to us, so a third 3-0 would good, albeit unlikely based on Tuesday's team selection and performance. Saturday's referee is a bald man from the armed forces, which will not please everybody! However he's not the worst example of that ilk...
  5. Another mathematical prediction...

    For stats nerds. I decided to do a simulation of the remaining games. My simulation is simple and limited, for now. I use the season form of each team (probability of a win, draw or loss) to simulate the outcome of all remaining fixtures. I then ran the simulation 10,000 times to work out a...
  6. Ref Watch ....... Bury H

    Matches against Bury of late have been nothing if not close. The last 5 have been draws and the 5 before that were either draws or 1-0s. Tomorrow's referee is a bald man from the armed forces, which will not please everybody! However he's one of the better ones of that ilk. Man in charge will...
  7. Ref Watch ...... Mansfield H

    Tonight's referee is the shaven-headed 41 year old, Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. A sergeant in the RAF, on the human resources side, he began refereeing in 1988, officiating in the Northern Alliance and Northern Premier League, became an assistant referee for the Football League in 1996...
  8. Difference between Promotion and Relegation

    Its all well and good with regards to the out come of Barrys red card, however, if this wasn't overturned and we dropped points at hartlepool, Barry didn't play the next 3 games, potentially that could mean a loss of up to 12pts in all, which at the end of the season could mean promotion or...
  9. Ref Watch ..... Cup replay Brentford

    As we look to improve on a poor recent record at Griffin Park (no win for over 22 years) the man in charge of tomorrow's replay, weather permitting, is the shaven-headed 41 year old, Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. A sergeant in the RAF, on the human resources side, he began refereeing in...
  10. Ref Watch ...... Bristol Rovers away

    It is 10 years ago, almost to the day, when we got our last League win at Bristol Rovers with Tes the Cat notching the only goal of the game. Man in charge today is the shaven-headed 41 year old, Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. A sergeant in the RAF, he began refereeing in 1988, officiating...

    Monopoly

    The clue is in the name. They called it Mono-poly. Mono. One. Not Bi-opoly, not Tri-opoly, and certainly not Commi-opoly where you all work together and the renting revenue gets ******* on the space programme. It’s a game and it’s there to be won, so what’s the point in trying to play nice? Did...

    Question "...and Macca takes a tumble"

    Given that UEFA have now charged Eduardo with diving to win a penalty in the Champions League against Celtic, I wondered what everyone's personal barometer was for what's acceptable and what isn't with respect to conning the referee WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR OWN TEAM. I'll be honest and say it's...
  13. Eduardo dive

    anyone feel a bit sorry for Eduardo, I don't actually think it was a blatant dive... Boruc came charging out, Eduardo got to the ball and nipped it passed and then went down, he didn't claim or appeal for a penalty, and so my understanding is that even if there wasn't contact he couldn't be...

    Honest Football

    Why is it, we play honestly as in we never dive and con the ref into making a booking/sending off, but other teams such as Tranny and Yeovil don't, like Bas Savage yesterday? It really does annoy me when I watch football and I personally think something should be done to clamp out cheating in...
  15. Ref Watch .... Chelsea

    As we take on Chelsea competitively for the 3rd time in the club's history, referee Stuart Attwell from Warwickshire referees us for the 3rd time. (The other two were one win, one defeat ... I'd take the draw to complete the set!) A somewhat notorious official, Mr Attwell was promoted to SG...

    Keeping some perspective

    I can't wait for tomorrow, it should be good. Well, except for the Roots Hall tea, but that's a given pain I will continue to bear until my memory starts working on match days. But I do find it odd that from the depths of despair 3 days ago we now have about 150 posts regarding our new arrivals...

    The fbm report - Carlisle

    SOUTHEND CRUMBLE TO THE CUMBRIANS For the first time since the home game against Colchester on April 6th, Southend failed to score in a game (including pre season friendlies) as they went down 1-0 at home to Carlisle. Blues missed the opportunity to go top of the table in a keenly contested...

    The fbm view and ratings - Leicester

    TEN MAN BLUES SNATCH LATE POINT Southend battled against all odds to claim a precious point at Roots Hall today which will assist in the fight against relegation. It may be easy for some to see this as two points dropped but given the manner of last weeks defeat, the midweek furore, the fact...

    What Happens If Maher's Appeal is Upheld?

    I said in the chat room on Saturday that I think the rules on red card appeals ought to be changed so that if a player is found to have been sent off erroneously because of another player's simulation, the player that cheated ought to have the ban imposed on him. At the moment there is no...
  20. Steve Bennett

    I hate it when excuses are made for a team,especially after losing 3-0, but we were more than equal to Col******r today and was done over by inadequate refereeing. We matched them and it could have gone either way before the sendings off. I was thinking in the first half how poor the ref was...
