    A few tips on predicting

    I thought a few facts might help towards successful predicting, or perhaps not. :nope: Firstly as true Southend fans we are taught from the beginning of our supporting careers, that Southend are world beaters and that Col Ewe are the worst club in the country. Hence predicting is easy Southend...
  2. Pathetic Shooting Practise At Training.

    Shooting practise with the forwards needs a total change in my opinion, and there currently should be more time spent on it. They are rolled a ball and they try and beat the keeper. Dave Penney normally does shooting practise. There is no instruction from a former deadly striker about balance...

    Teaching RE

    I'm ready for the banter, and have no problem with it at all, but think that this article is very interesting regarding the place of RE in our schools: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6417096 It begins: And it goes on... I think a few on here need to really take stock of that...

    Tika taka footy for kids

    Hi, i run a team of eight-year olds in a 7-a-side league. After watching years of Spanish style football take over the world nationally and Barcelona at club level, i have decided i want to teach my kids this style. For the past 4 months we have worked on simple passing and control, our first...
  8. Can a footballer learn to control anger?

    Or for that matter can any human being learn to control anger? Well the simple answer is yes we can learn to control anger. But in general anger cannot be managed simply by someone trying harder next time to avoid getting angry (as some seem to think). I have never heard of footballers...

    Topless Teachers: Not at my school

    Reading this in the Standard this week. I guess that's what they pay all their tuition fees for, so they don't get fat ugly grammar school teachers teaching them. Being taught by her is almost worth 30k on it's own, nevermind getting an education...
  11. Gary Neville

    Couldn't put it better myself Oliver Kay On Thursday 3rd February 2011, @OliverKayTimes said: A 1,000-word tweet dedicated to Gary Neville, the great overachiever ... There was, it is fair to say, a lively response last night when, in tribute to Gary Neville, I called him "one of world...

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...

    'The Road To Binfield Pier'

    Me and The Captain have been discussing a homage to Orwell's 'The Road To Wigan Pier' with some contemporary musings on the state of the nation today, based on our social encounters and exchanges with our public. To set the scene for this one, I wish to tell you how The Captain once taught your...

    Working For a ***** Company

    As some of you will know, I work for a Rescue & Recovery Company which is not your average 9-5 sort of job. Most though not all who do this job expect long hours, all weather conditions and sometimes, the very real risk of serious injury or even death. It's the nature of the job (considered in...

    Wenger's Bar

    I'm afraid I won't be writing a column this week, or indeed ever again. Yep, I'm hanging up my presspass and shutting my laptop for the final time. I'm off to France, you see. Arsene Wenger's assertion that he learned everything he needed to know about football in a pub gave me food for thought...

    The mighty shrimpers thread got me thinking of a old flame that was a real life honey nut loop.She came from a well to do family and lived in a big house and i was a council house scumbag that would never ever be good enough for her in the eyes of her father. I dated her for a long 4 years until...
  19. Average Men do Well in the USA

    I got back from my travels this morning, sampling the best of what the USA has to offer. If ithere's one thing I've learned, is that men must travel there in thousands just to pick up women... The levels of over-achievement going on is stupid. All I seemed to see was your average run of the...

    Terry's Disingenuous Pledge

    If you ever wanted to capture the essence of modern football in just one page, you could do a lot worse than paying a visit to Chelsea's website. Here, behind the splash of adverts for a new kit that looks more like a women's cycling top than a football jersey, you will find John Terry's...
