    The PB Diaries

    Wey aye, pets. PB, here. I've decided to dispense with me programme notes for 2017 as, let's face it, who buys a programme these days. Waste of money. Whoops I shouldn't be saying that, should I? But we all know only programme collectors and loons buy programmes and they don't even open them...

    Places you have visited

    Was in Jersey last week, and although I've swerved it on previous visits, I thought I would take a trip to the Nigel Mansell museum. Tenner to get in, wasn't expecting too much really, but spent a couple of hours there and was very impressed. I always had this bloke down as just another race...

    Ronaldo or Messi

    I was watching a documentary on Cristiano 'couldn't score at Roots Hall' Ronaldo. It was a really enjoyable watch but one of the main points from it was the age old argument. Who is the best player in the world? Ronaldo or Messi? For me it's hard to decide as you have on one hand a player who...

    Wembley - Just a day out?

    Is the thought of Wembley considered just a day out, or more important to you than that? For me its the one sporting dream that remains in my catalogue. I have done FA cup Finals, Ive been to the Wrold Cup, attended many England games at the new and old stadium, Ive seen Essex in Lords finals...

    Best looking football trophy

    I was thinking about the World Cup this morning and how that lovely little trophy will go in to hiding should (heaven forbid) Italy, Brazil, Germany or Argentina win in South Africa next month. So obviously the FIFA Trophy is up there as one of the finest looking football trophies ever, as is...

  14. Why I Own A Green And Gold Scarf...

    I’m not a Manchester United fan. When Freddy Eastwood dispatched a venomous 25-yard free kick past Tomasz Kuszczack in the Carling Cup, I was as ecstatic as every other Southend supporter crammed into Roots Hall. I do, however, own a green and gold scarf. Supporters are funny groups of people...

    Why Bother?

    Why are England playing Holland tonight? Does anyone actually know? International friendlies are pointless and pre-season friendlies are tedious, so why are we combining the two to create one giant 90 minute period of mind-altering boredom? Who stands to gain from this unique conjunction of the...
  18. Newcastle Suffer the Greatest Loss

    Newcastle United have no manager, an owner that doesn't want them, a vastly inflated wage bill and a squad on the verge of mutiny, yet that was all put into perspective this morning with the news that Sir Bobby Robson passed away. He was 76. A true icon of the game, his playing success was...
  19. How long will it be until investment is made?

    Looking at Clarkey's words about the ambition that Huddersfield show and their ability to offer a 3 year contract I wondered how long it would be, if ever, foreign investment will be made into the leagues outside the premiership in England. Obviously QPR have had some of the wealthiest...

    Ruthless United Stun Arsenal

    There is a reason why Manchester United are the best team in the world. They don't lift all those trophies simply because they have better players, or smarter tactics. They succeed so frequently because Sir Alex Ferguson has built himself a team of winners, professional and ruthless, indomitable...
