  1. An ode to Mark Gower

    Pretty shoddy attempt, can anyone come up with something better? :) The day he signed from Barnet we said 'who the hell is he?', Another rubbish has been? Those thoughts soon turned to glee, A debut to remember, the first Mark wonder goal, 41 would follow, They warmed us in the cold, He...
  2. BBC gossip column

    Blimey, i thought that Tilson had to work on a tight budget! - "Gordon Strachan is staying at Celtic after a third straight SPL triumph and will be handed £20 to spend in the summer".(Daily Mirror)

    Manchester United v Chelsea Euro final

    They went into the last day of the league separated only by goal difference and when it came to the final of the biggest cup competition in the world, the margin between Manchester United and Chelsea was somehow even thinner. After 120 minutes of gruelling football that ebbed and flowed between...

    A possible League One scenario

    If either Doncaster or ourselves triumph in the playoffs and Wednesday (or Leicester/Southampton for that matter) come down, is it even going to be worth trying to find League One reporting on anyone else?? I believe Leicester have never been out of the top two divisions.
  6. Derby's Joke Season

    The natural English love for the woeful underdog should extend to Derby's comedy campaign in the Premiership this season, but am I alone in enjoying every moment of their misery? I refer you to May 1, 1994, when young SUFC fans invaded the pitch expecting the same camaraderie with the away...

    Poor old Spurs

    Juande Ramos' tilt at a third successive UEFA Cup ended in heartbreak at The Philips Stadium when Pascal Chimbonda dragged his spot-kick wide of the goal and sent PSV Eindhoven through by the narrowest of margins. Despite 210 minutes of football, these weary gladiators had to be separated by a...

    Sorry Spurs

    Juande Ramos said earlier this week that the clash with PSV Eindhoven would be a barometer of his team’s progress since he took the helm, but if that’s the case then there’s a grim storm on the horizon. Most people put Tottenham’s abysmal showing at St Andrews last weekend down to a hangover...

    Southend 3 - 1 West Brom

    STEVE TILSON reckons Southend's Great Escape is on after Jamal Campbell-Ryce's dazzling one-man show sunk West Brom. The Shrimpers starlet supplied some belated New Year fireworks at chilly Roots Hall with a deadly first-half double. Campbell-Ryce's heroics were enough to give...

    Am I the only one ?

    Now before you start on me let me let you know my reasoning behind this... Firstly, we are expected to get beaten, and heavily if our last few results are to be taken in account. The players wont be under any pressure, as they werent at Leeds and it showed, they played with freedom and...
