  2. This is Disgraceful, Southend are a joke.

    Can't believe that there's nothing for anyone to moan about. Even I have a little go every now and again. The team look awesome at the moment, even too good in midfield for macca to currently get in the starting line up with the amazing energy and class of Sawyer and Christophe playing like a...

    Stalemate at Stamford Bridge

    Apologies, it was such a rush to get this out in time that I forgot to SZ it! See if you can spot the ****-ups.... So near and yet so far. Manchester United came within ten minutes of ending Chelsea's extraordinary 85 game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge, pegged back by that most unlikely of...

    UEFA Cash Cow, sorry "Champions" League

    Chelsea under Scolari look a real attacking force from what I have seen so far this season. Liverpool also winning well in Marseille.

    Now we all have our breath back...

    Now the dust has settled, and the transfer windows are closed, how do we assess the state of this squad? My opinions as follows. Keepers: Very happy Defenders: Would have liked to have seen another centre-back come in to challenge Barrett and Clarke. Very pleased with Harding. It's nigh-on...

    Barry Fry

    Seems like we could be up against him in Pre Season, as its rumoured he's interested in the available job at The Daggers! I haven't heard anything about it myself, but their board is full of posts about him and it's supposed to have been mentioned on Sky Sports News.

    What we're really missing - a Spencer Prior type

    It's too easy to cry "disgrace" after games like last night's. Let's try to be constructive and pinpoint what went wrong. The thing that stood out to me from the South Upper was the ease with which the defence got dragged all over the place. Sankofa in particular looks like the kind of player...

    Ashley Should Hide Now

    Kevin Keegan was not simply the manager of Newcastle United. In the eyes of the supporters he was a hero, an icon, a leader and an inspiration. His sacking will not be treated as another turn of the managerial merry-go-round, it will be felt like the killing of a monarch. You have to visit...

    Question Dominic Green - D&R

    Not trying to suggest I know anything but Dominic Green from D&R is in talks with another club. Apparently good young midfielder - only 19 though and I dont know if he is attacking centre-defensive centre or winger. Wondered if anyone has heard his name mentioned recently?

    Claude Makelele

    When Roman Abramovich first pumped Chelsea full of roubles in 2003, it sparked a frenzied shopping spree that would have put Coleen Rooney to shame. Hundreds of millions of pounds were splashed out on an array of talent, but I very much doubt if any of it was put to better use than the £16.8m...
  14. Squad

    I no there are other threads on this but after todays game just wanted to seek other peoples opinions on how many players do we really need. So far we have GK: Mildenhall, Joyce LB: Herd RB:Francis CB: Barrett, Clarke. Sankofa apparently can play across the back four...but i dont feel to...

    Diamond Formation

    Wanting to understand this proposed new system, I googled "diamond formation". Initially, I got a lot of (useful) information about carbon under pressure for millions of years forming transparent precious stones... Adding 'football' and 'tactics' into the search and I got: The ‘Diamond...
