    Premier League and European Prediction Leagues

    First of all many thanks for the appreciation shown for the PL on another thread and clearly some really enjoy the prediction Leagues. It is very time consuming but I now have the best job in the world (retirement) so I have the time and when working statistics was always a big part of my day so...
  2. Chelmsford City striker Scott Fenwick

    Last week the Chelmsford striker scored three penalties in two successive games, must be a record to get two hat tricks of spot kicks one game after another. Deserves to get a mention on Sky Sports, would make a change from their obsession with the Premier League.

    How old is your match day attire?

    On match day it's not uncommon to see baseball caps that are older than the invention of baseball caps worn by the more mature Southend supporter. I must be honest and say that I now don't have or wear anything of vintage status, but the reason for my ramblings is that yesterday I saw a guy...

    Players known by their first name

    This occurred to me when listening to a US sports podcast and one of the hosts ripping another for calling a Patriots player 'Danny' as opposed to 'Amendola' or 'Danny Amendola'. The other defended it by saying that is just how he is known among the fan base - Danny. So which players over the...

    Minority sports

    I am thinking of taking the family to watch the Chelmsford Chieftains ice hockey team. £20 for a family of four seems like a bargain. Has anyone here been to a match or is into other minority sports?
  7. Not SUFC Related. Please support Hullbridge Sports.

    I know lots of the Southend United fans also follow local football, so I am asking all of you to click on the link to help Hullbridge Sports in their endeavours to win £50,000 of building materials. I am sure , if you all vote, that HSFC can win this. Please post here when you have voted...

    The Captain Critical

    Some of you may well have seen this, but I thought it worthy of discussion and apologies in advance for length !! Apparently one of the favourite current reads amongst leading International coaches ( across all sports ) is " The Captains Class". It was even acknowledged by Southgate in...

  10. The Pitch

    I have been a supporter since the early sixties and now live up in Yorkshire. I don't get to home games so don't really know whether our pitch is generally poor for this division or whether it has gone downhill since the groundsman sacking fiasco. A couple of miles from my house are the world...

    Issue with Essex CCC 2017 thread

    There appears to be a problem with the above thread in Harry's All Sports Forum. I am able to open/select/view all the pages except the last page (Page 32) it gives me a "HTTP ERROR 500" message, any ideas what has happened? I did manage to post on it but not view it.

  13. Ref Watch ..... Blackburn H

    We last hosted Blackburn on November 5th, 26 years ago. Fireworks provided courtesy of Brett Angell, twice, and Ian Benjamin giving us a 3-0 victory and our first and only win against them in 12 matches. Angell was in the middle of a run of scoring in seven consecutive matches against teams of...

    Longest suffering fans

    Sky Sports have an article on which fans are the longest suffering over the last 50 years. It is an article relating to the Wembley Naff Daf, **** Poor Paint Pot, Chuck It Out or whatever it is now called match Coventry v Oxford on Sunday and refers to the long suffering Coventry fans. However...

  19. A Christmas miracle-WE ARE 6TH!!!!!!!!

    Almost brought a tear to my eye when I saw the League one table on SKY Sports!!! How has this happened we were relegation certainties at the end of September but now we are smashing teams out of sight and we are even talking of promotion. A huge amount of credit has to go to Phil Brown for...

    Just a tad dangerous.......

    Not really a thread...just a comment. I was passing Boots & Laces at just before 5.00pm this evening on my way to B&Q. As I drove past the entrance I noticed in my peripheral vision a large group of guys all dressed in dark sports clothing standing right on the roadside...where there are no...
