sucked

  1. southend_aussies

    Maybe we sucked early.....

    Because of the tough draw we had at the start. In our first 12 games we played 7 of the top 9 sides that cureently occupy those positions. Four of those were away which we gained 1 point - v Bolton. In our first 18 overall that increased to 9 as we played Bradford twice, for four points. Now...

    Pre-Match Thread v Blackpool Saturday 21 November

    A minimum 6-0 home win should be the target. Blackpool are in dire straits on and off the pitch. I had the misfortune of seeing them get knocked out of the FA Cup at Barnet the other week (doing the 92 thing) - Barnet were poor but Blackpool were woeful. Hardly any shots on goal, passing...

    Todays "English" Media.

    Why is the public media mostly controlled by the rich tax exiles.. I posted this elsewhere so have copied it in here. ..Today's popular media and unfortunately 2 of the top selling papers are run by The Tories...The Sun and Sky- Rupert Murdoch, nothing to do with the country apart from wanting...
  4. Is the passing game dead?

    As I mentioned on another thread, I've watched a fair few Ryman Prem games this year and have been surprised by how direct it is. It is very much headers and volleys for 90 minutes with the ball very rarely going sideways to the widemen & fullbacks where there is space. I discussed this with a...
  5. Orient Fans Forum an Interesting read

    http://s16124652.onlinehome-server.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8414&sid=744e9ce7e47633370b22cb8238a03725 Seems as though some Leyton Orient fans have woken up on the wrong side of the bed and sucked a few lemons! hahaa Truly laughable what some of their fans are saying! Some realistic fans...

    Home Form...no real suprise?

    Having posed a question on the forum today as well as poking my nose into other interesting threads - I have to say that the huge gulf in opinions on here (no bad thing) does lead to verbal jousting. Myself being easily sucked into that too..having entered with the express aim of not doing so...
  7. Oldham Athletic Report

    I went along to Bournemouth v Oldham on Saturday to take a closer look at next week’s FA Cup opponents. The game finished 0-0 and was absolutely dire – if we are to go up this season, and if this match is indicative of the quality of the bottom half of L1, we should be fine in that...
  8. I think we need to go bust to survive

    After watching the game on saturday, I have reached the very sad conclusion, that the only way out of this mess, is to actual get wound up, and go bust. then reform, aka wimbledon, chester, halifax,etc etc. for there is no getting away from it, we are very close to the end, both on and off the...
  9. Dear Mr Aardvark

    Has anyone with a surname starting with A got their season card refund yet? Yes you. Anthony Aardvark of Abacus Avenue, Ashingdon. Coz I'm still waiting. And no I don't want it to be sucked into a players purchase fund. And yes I do expect the club to keep their word to someone like me who...

    In the brown stuff!

    I have tried everything, Lucky scarf, one glove off, one glove on,swapped from snickers bar at halftime back to minstrels(AKA OUR TITLE WINNING SEASON) I would even contemplate being teatotal for a month if we could stop conceeding stupid goals but if I am truthfully honest I dont think it...

    SZ Novella - Chapter 8

    Chapter Eight - The Reduced Hypertherpia of the Closed Mancharia Osymandus pulled on a pair of heavy trousers and sucked the fetid air in through his teeth. Behind him, Rick Astley's body congealed silently on the floor, but of all the contributory factors to the awful smell in the room, he was...

    Tyne Is Running Out

    Newcastle United are going down. Whatever you read in the press, whatever club sources say on the website, they are circling the drain ready to be sucked down into the Championship. There is no hope on Tyneside anymore. Their supporters, more than anyone else at the club, realise that this is...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Five

    Chapter Five - Red Sky At Night, Stokes' Delight Ricey sprinted down the back-alley, feet slipping and sliding on the wet concrete as he went. The sound of a gunshot echoed off the walls and he instinctively ducked, almost falling to the ground. Reaching the end of the passageway, he turned...

    Hiddink's Hairdryer

    Juventus 2-2 Chelsea (2-3 agg) (Iaquinta 19) (Essien 45+1) (Del Piero 74) (Drogba 83) Guus Hiddink was hired to bring some tactical sophistication to an underwhelming team, but according to Ray Wilkins, it was an old-fashioned half-time hairdryer that carried Chelsea to the last eight of the...

    My Roar blog - part 2

    At the start of the A-League season I posted a blog about my experiences as a newly emigrated ‘Pom’ supporting the Queensland Roar. General commitments relating to settling into the country (getting a new job, buying a car, finding somewhere to live) has meant I haven’t made it a regular thing...

    These holes are not only amazing, but some of them are really terrifying - especially number 8! The sheer scale of these holes reminds you of just how tiny you are. 1. Kimberley Big Hole - South Africa Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world, This 1097 meter deep mine...

  19. Why drugs are good

    In response to the Why Drugs Are Bad Thread... Electronica jazz-freak and well renowned acid head Squarepusher has put forward a strong case for why drugs are good! “This album started as a daydream about watching a crazy, beautiful rock band play an ultra-gig. At first, a giant fluorescent...

    Stupid England Get There Slowly

    The signs of improvement are visible, but Fabio Capello's mission to revitalise the England team is still some way from completion. There were moments, during this frustrating, attritional non-contest, of class and sophistication, but sporadic style couldn't eclipse the fact that this side are...
