    Alan McCormack talks

    The Echo this morning is reporting that PB is to hold talks with Alan McCormack with a view to signing him as the holding midfielder. Brown's thoughts are that this would free up Lenny to push on more. My view is we should look for somebody a bit younger with room to grow with the team, but we...
  2. Foreign aid overspend !

    Been revealed the overspend was a mere 176 million,poo chicken feed in the enormous 12 billion budget. Some say the overspend could have kept our steel crisis going for 6 months! For my money the 12 billion should be used here in this country,sod overseas aid,it only goes to despots and...

    Southend United's steel earns them three points against York City

    THE outcome may have been the same for Southend United on Saturday as they made it four wins in a row with a 2-1 triumph against York City. But the manner of the victory and the level of the performance was in complete contrast to the three wins that had come before seeing off the Minstermen at...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-1 Morecambe

    For me, a disappointing final league game for at least a year. Will have to satisfy myself with being an exiled Shrimper from 23rd July, but was hoping for a better send off! The game summed up the season really. Started well, should have been a couple of goals up, conceded an undeserved goal...

    Greek Tragedy For King Otto

    South Korea 2-0 Greece EURO 2004 SEEMS AN AWFULLY LONG TIME AGO It’s hard to believe that Greece ever caused the European superpowers such headaches. Granted, they were never blessed with a generation of superstars, but they always had their composure, their organisation and their ability to...

    How Did Cameron Screw This Up?

    He was up against an anonymous public-schooled Am-Dram nobody and a one-eyed bear with all the charm of genital herpes. He had almost every popular newspaper throwing muck at his rivals and calling him a Man Of Steel or Our Last Great Hope, blowing the horn of bullpoop in the ears of the nation...

John Cena vs Batista (Last Man Standing) - WWE Championship. - Well lets face it, we all know who I want to win this one. Jack Swagger vs Randy Orton (Extreme Rules Match)...
  15. Question Time to say goodbye Steve

    First person to go should be Steve Tilson, Why because he manages with no passion and is too laid back, get fed up with him just standing there arms folded while it all blows up in front of him, want to see a manager shouting, screaming running down the touch line and showing the same passion as...

    Granty and Francis.

    Could they have done any more tonight. In fact could they have done much more all season. I have always liked them both but I think they have shown some real steel that others seem to have lacked in this dog fight. Granty covers every blade of grass and his reading and footballing...

    Time For Chelsea To Grow Up

    WHAT’S GONE WRONG AT CHELSEA? For six years, Chelsea have been a relentless winning machine, but that arrogant sense of superiority has faded away. In its place is hesitancy, vulnerability and a worrying inability to dictate the flow of games. Chelsea are dropping points so frequently that...

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...
