    Family Enclosure sold out in west stand.

    Made my normal trip to the ticket office first thing this morning to buy my tickets (which is normally fine) to be told they couldn't get us in the West stand due to a community promotion and the west FE is pretty much sold out and would have to go in the South lower. Great to hear they are...

    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    Mills Spendiff Lost and Found?

    The Brockster and I have just come back from a "lost" 3 days in Inverness. Great time, great pubs and some mad football up there. During a lull in alcohol intake we went to Ross County FC, finalists in the Scottish Cup next week. Took a blue voice flag and took a load of photo's of the ground...

    Essex Senior League: Manager Quits In The Clubhouse

    You missed a cracker today down at Southchurch Park Arena. Finished Southend Manor 6, Mauritius Sports 1. It could and should have been 10-3 as both teams missed dreadfully in front of goal. That open goal against Wycombe was nothing compared to today! Being the great bloke that I am, I...

    I'd Have Booed Beckham

    I've been a little bit sniffy about football in America in the past. With their 'marquee' players and unbridled enthusiasm for the spectacular, there's always been a doubt in my mind as to whether they really 'get' what football is all about. That is until now. I'm sure I can't be the only...

    Official Match Thread Southend United Reserves v Col Ewe From The East Greens

    Currently 2-1 to Southend. Laurent opened the scoring on 18 after a break on the left had him unmarked and he slotted home from 10 yards. Col Ewe equalised 10 minutes later after a break down the right resulted in a 2-on-1 with the keeper, it was a case of a simple pass and tap-in. Southend...

    The League One Table

    The League One table appears to be splitting into seven distinct groups at the moment. These are: 1. Likely champions - Leicester City 10 points ahead of the rest 2. Promotion chasers - MK Dons and our next opponents Scunthorpe 3. Three likely play-off contenders 4. The play-off chasing...

    When Will The Levy Break?

    As Daniel Levy sits and stares at the league table during this interminable international break, I wonder how long it will be before he concludes that, with the benefit of hindsight, finishing fifth every year wasn't actually all that bad. Tottenham Hotspur are in crisis. Even though it's...

    What a Game

    That was one of the best games of football I have ever seen at Roots Hall period. Every player of both sides gave it their all and 0-0 was a fair result. Even the ref was fair and even although I think the sending off was a little harsh simple because of the way the game was played. Every player...
  12. Play off allocations..

    Is there a minimum clubs have to give away fans for their home leg... As we could sell the whole ground out to home fans for this game surely its in our intrest to keep away fans to the bare minimum.. Likewise for whoever we play in the away leg.. Obviously some grounds lend themselves to an...

    Hull, Hell And Happiness

    18 hours of hell, 1 moment of ecstasy ..... 4.00pm - get up from bed (I work nights), showered, breakfasted, watch greedy tart crying because she only won a tenner on Deal Or Sod Off, Noel. 5.00pm - can't afford the bus fare to Billericay station, where Chipper is being dropped off from...
  16. Coventry Game

    I was impressed with a much improved display this week.  The lads fought and battled hard, and had more desire than they showed in the Cardiff game.  If they pull up their socks and continue to play like that, results will come. Didn't think much of Coventry and don't expect them to be...

    The fbm view and ratings

    2005 came to an end at the Hall with a game against Bournemouth, who's first match in 8 days should have given them a distinct fitness advantage over Blues injury hit squad. For the first 20 minutes it showed as well, with Blues midfield looking overrun and Bournemouths full backs staying...

    New Ground

    So people if you had the opportunity to design this new state of the art ground for us how would you go about it? Personally, I would like it to be around the 15000 capacity mark with the ability to increase if need be, for starters. I would like one end behind the goal to be terracing if at...
