    Dilemma time

    Just bought this player as a batsman to beefen up the squad. Karl Philip (855347) LH Batsman, LFM Bowler, woeful batting form, superb bowling form, sublime fitness. An attacking player with competent leadership skills and woeful experience. Plays For: Napster's XI Nationality: Australia...

    Manuel Neuer

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...

    The fbm report - Walsall

    BLUES GO FOURTH AFTER SADDLERS STROLL Well, stroll might be too strong a word for what on paper was only a 1-0 victory but in reality Southend put on their best and most entertaining performance for many weeks as they totally dominated Walsall at Roots Hall today. The fact that the scoreline...

    Fabio Capello

    David Beckham’s long wait for a century of England caps should finally come to an end in Paris tonight, thus bringing to an end the tedious and never-ending speculation over his future. Beckham has been a fine ambassador for the nation and deserves this great honour, but England must move on and...

    Forest, the Blue Voice, and the Irish

    Just got back to Limerick this evening after the match last night - very bleary eyed after a long journey! Enjoyed the game, thought Forest weren't really all that at all, and we should have beaten them by more. Kanu took his goal very well - but i was very disappointed by the defending for the...
  12. BT - Week 8 pops

    Another very good week for me, including 5 week cons pops for Middleton :clap: , and and XP pop for Brinkhuys Middleton's fielding net will now be changed to Stamina, and after his next Priamry pop, that net will change to Stamina as well. Delroy Middleton - 23 yo, BT Rating=84,774 RH...

    Sponsor OUR stadium

    With the likely outcome of Ron giving the name of our stadium to the highest bidder,would it be totally out of our reach if we started clubbing together on here to sponsor the stadium ourselves?? Many a fan will be leaving Roots Hall with a heavy heart and fantastic memories.Memories also of...

    Best TV Documentary Series

    I've been re-watching The World At War over the last couple of weeks at 10pm on UKTV History - compelling stuff too, great narration by Laurence Olivier, backed by superb footage and eye-witness accounts. Atmospherical title music and pictures aswell. It has got me thinking what, in my opinion...
