    Young Guns Hit Five

    There is a swagger about Arsenal in Europe this year. Since the inception of the Champions League, the Gunners have struggled to take their domestic form with them when they go to the airport, reaching the final just once and crashing out early every other year. In that same time Manchester...

    Question Rib injurys.

    Right lads. Went up for a header a couple of weeks ago. Would describe it as one of my best headers ever as totally out jumped the guy and got a clean connection. Sadly he got a good connection in my ribs and since then I have been in real pain. Been told by a few people that its a waste of...

    Question The Flight debate..

    Away from the issue of the credit crunch, there is another burning debate that i feel can be ignited on the SZ front... With airline charging more and more for add on's, is it about time a persons weight should be considered when booking a flight? I understand this is an area, which in todays...
  4. A little dilemma

    Yesterday at work I received a call from my 5 year old to say that because she had been the best in the class she was allowed to look after the class room Teddy Bear. I of course told her how exciting it was and that I couldn't wait like a proud dad to get home and see her wonderful trophy...

    Friends of Katie

    Some of you may have read in the Echo or in yesterday's programme that this Saturday (20th September) we are having the first Friends of Katie Cricket Match and Fun Day at Little Baddow CC in memory of my daughter Katie who passed away in February. For those of you not going to Crewe then you...

    Midweek Funnies

    There are two Mexicans who have been lost in the desert for weeks, and they're at death's door. As they stumble on, hoping for salvation in the form of an oasis or something similar, they suddenly spy, through the heat haze, a tree, off in the distance. As they get closer, they can see that...

    'You'll Never Walk Alone'

    The parties went on long into the night. For the third time in four seasons, Liverpool were through to the final four of Europe's most prestigious competition. Rafa Benitez had asked and the Anfield faithful had provided. The old stadium was rocked on its foundations by the noisy supporters and...
  8. ''Walsall's amazing feat''

    I remember an amazing game at Roots Hall back in 1980 versus Hereford in the F.A. cup ,when we lost 1-0 .You know when people say that the opposition had just One shot and scored ,well this was it ,but it actually happened .We was camped in their half the whole match as they played with just...

    Chelsea get through

    Chelsea became the third English side to book their place in the Quarter-Finals of the Champions League and they did it, not by boring their opponents into submission, but by smashing them to pieces with a performance that, strange as it may sound, was as beautiful as it was efficient. Avram...

    My Match Ratings

    I don't usually do this after games but i thought i would show how i rated the players' performances last night... Flahavan- 6- In all fairness he had nothing to do, there two shots on target resulted in two goals. Made a couple of good punched clearances and a couple of good catches...
  11. Southend Helped Rochdale Get Promotion

    back in the 1960s rochdale were like us a decent 4th division outfit, and they beat us 5-0 i think on the last day of the season to ensure that they got promotion to the 3rd divisio, the people of rochdale hold that team in revere and I have touched the ball that was used inthe game

    The fbm report - Bristol Rovers

    Neither myself or Matt have had the chance to upload this yet, so I'm putting it on the forum for the moment. BLUES CLUELESS AS ROVERS RETURN WITH POINTS Southend produced one of the worst displays in recent times as they slumped to yet another home defeat – this time to a lowly and very...
  13. Happy New Year...

    ...or not as the case may be. Absolutely woeful performance from us today, never looked a real threat, never looked like we were going to create anything and never looked like we were bothered about the game. Collis - 6 - Virtual spectator for the majority of the game. Made one decent save...

    A Christmas Tale

    They don't do it in Germany, they've long since given it up in Spain and the French would be astonished if you suggested that they should give it a try. The Christmas football fixture list is a curiously British and Irish disease. With almost every other civilised nation doing the sensible...
  15. PSP For Sale

    Posted a message on here a while back saying I was selling my PSP and had an offer at the time which appears to have been withdrawn. Got 8 games, hardly been touched. The games are Need for speed most wanted, Championship Manager 2006 and the original, Pro Evolution 5, Madden 06, Grand theft...

    The fbm report - Carlisle

    SOUTHEND CRUMBLE TO THE CUMBRIANS For the first time since the home game against Colchester on April 6th, Southend failed to score in a game (including pre season friendlies) as they went down 1-0 at home to Carlisle. Blues missed the opportunity to go top of the table in a keenly contested...

    Please tell me someone just see the incident on Sky Sports? Fair play the fan shouldnt of been on the pitch but what was dida playing at. the fan hardly touched him. I think he was hoping to get teh goal disallowed of something. Superb dive though.

    In Englands Green and Pleasant Land

    An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following was witnessed: A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (A black gown & face mask) was standing with her shopping in a queue at the checkout. When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier, she made a loud remark...

    Reading v Chelsea Cisse red card..

    Another poor decision tonight to send of Reading's Kalifa Cisse for a 'stamp' on Pizzaro. Cisse never touched Pizzaro who rolled around in agony clutching his shin. TV replays clearly show there was hardly any contact between the two players.
