    Martin Winger Ling

    Martin Ling could have moved to the top of the list for the manager’s job at Blue Square Premier club Cambridge United. The former Leyton Orient boss looks set to be shortlisted for the post, left vacant by last week’s sacking of Gary Brabin, after being interviewed by the board. Chairman...

    Vying for the number three spot

    Forget the X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent or Strictly Come Dancing, there was only one audition to attend this weekend as three prospective England batsmen took to the crease to try and force their way back into the international reckoning. England must now long for the days when a succession...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ricky Otto

    Next up for election to the Hall of Fame is Ricky Otto. Ricky Otto had it all: skill, flair and funny looking hair. He was signed by B****y F*y for £100,000, a fee that seems suspiciously high for a Leyton Orient reserve. I won't make any libellous suggestions about brown envelopes...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Webb

    For 84 years Southend was a team that bounced around the lower divisions. The opening words of the official club history are: "Other teams dreamt of Wembley, some hankered for the first division championship or a place in Europe - but Southend only ever wanted second division status." We'd...

    If there are any Premiership footballers you hate, just let me know

    As whenever I put them in my fantasy Football team, they inevitably get injured for the rest of the season. So far I've cursed Eduardo, Bullard, Arteta, Neville, Rooney and Yakubu for large spells of this year. Who next? God I suck this year...

    Reoccuring Themes...

    After looking back to last nights events it made me realise how many times we lose 1-0 at home and how few times we win 1-0 away from home. Most teams come to Roots Hall looking for a point by putting men behind the ball, time-wasting etc etc and how we struggle to break them down. Crewe must of...

    Pre-Match Thread Ayrshire Blue's Swindon Preview.

    Swindon Town vs Southend United 
7/2/2009 This weekend sees Southend travel to the County Ground to face Swindon Town, With the adverse weather conditions causing havoc there is still a slight doubt as to whether the game will be on or not. Both teams are in need of the points with Southend in...
  13. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-0 Bristol Rovers

    Haven't seen one yet so here we go. Very good performance, was Lambert even on the pitch?????? Dervitte looked a good signing and Bazza is good at LB because it allows him to bomb forward. Unfortunate for Herd to be dropped but the correct decision by Tilly. Also correct in playing Dougie...

    Imperative

    It is imperative that we get behind Tilly and Brush and a team full of kids now. No good moaning and giving it the old "i told everyone this would happen". Our club needs every bit of support we can muster if we want to build greater things.We absolutely need the fans to keep coming week in and...

    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report: Huddersfield Town (H) 13/12/08

    6 Points None The Richer. Saturday's game against Huddersfield town is a definate 6 pointer for the Shrimpers. They are directly below us and if Huddersfield win they go above us, this is something we don't want to happen and why this game is of great improtance to us. I think a major issue...

    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report: Leicester City Away 06/12/08

    How The Great Fall. Who would of thought that a few years back Martin O'Neill was in charge of a very good Leicester side with Emile Heskey showing his value and scoring for fun. A few years later Milan Mandaric decided to put his money into the club and stuck his nose in way to often, so...

    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report: Luton Town, FA CUP 29/11/08

    Minus 30 But Not Out. Who would have thought it? 2 seasons ago both the Mighty Shrimpers and The Hatters were playing against some of the best sides in English Football. Now Luton are on the verge of relegation from the football league less than 3 years after they were playing football in the...

    They Haunted the Os:

    #2 - Richard Cadette When we take an Orient retrospective from the early to late 1980s you can't help but be overcome with a sense of complete and utter misery. While the nation was tearing itself apart over the miner'sstrike the dear old Os were busy getting themselves relegated to Division...
