    Rangers hold the key to future Scottish European exploits

    Kaunas is a word that reminds Rangers of a bad time, a one time lacklustre performance in Europe against FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the Second Qualifying round in the 2009/10 UEFA Cup season. Celtic also now have a word that instils disappointment and memories of what could've been. FC Utrecht...
  3. A bit of respect and perspective?

    So we got a great win last night. And Paul Sturrock has assembled a new squad of players in a relatively short period of time. And it's all different and new and there's some promise of what might be achieved. I also have a lot of regard for what Paul Sturrock has achieved as a manager at...

    Delivery Times

    Something that really gets my goat, and I mean REALLY gets me angry is why I have to take a half bloody day any time I want to have anything delivered, or an engineer call-out. Does nobody in this world "get" the fact that people tend to be at work between the hours of 9 til 5 on working days...

    BOGMISH Rd 1:4 - LDV v Championship

    Not the most inspiring round today following yesterday's nail-biter (voting still open), but we've got Donkey Broughton's goal up against some optimism in the sun. First up is Silencer's choice, which surprisingly appears to be the only nomination involving Col Ewe (presumably as people were...

    BOGMISH Rd 1:1

    Welcome to the Battle of the Greatest Moments in (recent?) Southend History, where our opening tie is Big Bill Garner banging in 4 goals in a 7-0 romp against Weymouth in the FA Cup in the 1970/71 season up against Freddy keeping his nerve in a tense play-off game against Northampton. I look...

    Question Should we blame the 'Consortium' ?

    I am not exonerating RM but I have heard it said that the 'Consortium' stepped in to prevent RM from putting the Club into Administration in November, (in a similar style to Ken Bates), to deliberately make RM's life difficult - supposedly due to dissatisfaction from past dealings with RM...

    Harry's Nostalgia - North Bank Memories

    With the imminent return to the North Bank, albeit for two games I thought I'd share a few memories with you, while I still have them that is. Firstly though a big well done to Smiffy, TrueBlue and all the others who have worked hard to achieve this. :clap: From the first day I stepped into...

    England Preview

    WHAT’S THE MAIN FOCUS FOR ENGLAND? Here in the UK, we’re all still stuck in the mire of what has inevitably been dubbed ‘BridgeGate’. You might think that weeks of press speculation, pages of gossip, one sacking, one resignation and one very publicly snubbed handshake would be enough to satiate...

    Rise in hate crime follows BNP council election victoriesBuzz

    <Robert Booth guardian.co.uk, Friday 15 January 2010 19.20 GMT Article historyReports of racial and religiously motivated crime rose following the election of British National party councillors in several far- right strongholds, police statistics have revealed. Complaints of hate crime...

    Save Rafa....

    Out of the title race, out of the Champions League, out of the League Cup and out of the FA Cup. Under normal circumstances, it's obvious that Rafa Benitez would be out of a job this morning but, unfortunately for Liverpool, these are far from normal circumstances. They are broke, weighed down...
  12. Bobby Moore & Vic Jobson

    Random find from the Observer about our one time manager and England legend Bobby Moore. Apologies if this has been posted before but it's interesting IMO. History will always consider Moore a managerial failure, and his record at Southend was unimpressive: relegated to the Fourth Division in...
  13. Ref Watch ...... Hartlepool

    The man in charge of Saturday's rather important fixture is Phil Gibbs from Birmingham. He is employed as Assistant Headteacher at a boys' secondary school in Kings Heath. In his second year as a League referee, he has never refereed Southend before and Hartlepool only once (they lost away)...
  14. Money Can't Buy You Class

    Money can you buy a lot of things. It can buy you a fast car, a nice house and a beautiful wife. It can buy you the worlds greatest player and, in Manchester City's case, it can buy you an incompetent defence. What money can't buy you, Manuel Pellegrini learnt tonight, is class. El Classico...

    The Ballad of Balloon Boy

    No matter how lethargic and fuzzy-headed you feel this Monday morning, no matter how unenthusiastic you were about the idea of leaving your bed, console yourself with the knowledge that at least one person out there is having it worse than you. Somewhere, presumably on Merseyside, one little boy...

    Job Done

    Manchester United 0-0 Arsenal Sir Alex Ferguson stepped lightly across the slick Old Trafford turf, turning slowly and taking in the view as if it was his first ever visit to the stadium. With eyes full of awe and a broad grin splashed across his face, he let out a long, sigh of satisfaction...
