    We went into the valleys and slayed the giants

    Wow, as the hangover has lifted it has finally sunk in that we bloody did it! Although I always followed the Blues fortunes since childhood I didn't really see many games, even when I started work at 17. I actually started to goto to every home game from the middle of 98/99 onwards so...

    Maher And Barrett, PFA Select team

    I know this has obviously been discussed in previous threads but i only found out about this early this morning while at work. To have two players in the PFA select team speaks volumes! Very pleased for both of them. I know i'm one of Maher's biggest critics but well done to the...

    Has stepped down at Peterborough. I don't think Tilly would be THAT stupid.

    Chester Today

    Went to today's game and I must say I am relived we came away with a point. As the game kicked off the wind and rain really picked up. The Blues were playing in to the wind in the 1st half and Daryl struggled to get his goal kicks anywhere near the halfway line. As we all know Chester scored...

    Pat Scully

    NEW Kilkenny City boss Pat Scully is all set for a tough season. However the manager is ready to give his all for the club, and only wants players who are prepared to do the same. “I know what I want for this club, and I have no problem working for it,” the new manager said. “I’m not afraid of...

    The fbm view and ratings

    There is something about a fixture against Swindon that conjures up special memories for me.  Two of the finest games I have ever seen at the Hall have been against the Robins, a 5-3 victory in the early 80’s and a 3-2  victory in our first season in the old division 2, with Ian Benjamin laying...
  7. Southend 1 Grimsby 1

    Fredy Eastwood came to Southend's rescue as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw with a hard-working Grimsby side. The 21-year-old striker collected his eighth goal in nine appearances in the 62nd minute to cancel out a first-half effort from John McDermott. Southend whent into the match on...

    The fbm view and ratings

    The home match against Boston last season was the match when I made my “debut” as an official SZ reporter.  We lost that game 2-0 and the atmosphere afterwards resembled that of a funeral. Stark contrast tonight – the game had everything and for once the Blues did NOT let a large crowd – 5688 –...

    Water Breaks/Ball Boy

    Not sure if this has been brought up yet but did anyone else notice how the Cheltenham players seemed to take more advantage of water breaks than we did. A small point but it may have helped. Also what do we think of Spencer's outburst towards the non moving ball boy in the second half...
  10. Chelmsford City

    Just in case anybody's remotely interested this is a report from the council meeting last night: Essex sport, and Chelmsford City Football Club in particular, will benefit from a landmark decision by the Chelmsford Borough Council’s Planning Committee to approve the development of Melbourne...
