  1. Arsene Wenger

    Chances of him being replaced/sacked/resigning before the start of next season? Pretty good I reckon, another season, no trophies and we all know how callous Premer$hite chairmen are.

    It's His Own Fault

    I love Carlos Tevez. If you're anything like me, still immature enough to allow your mind to wander with fantasises of being a professional footballer, you'll know why. Tevez plays in exactly the same way that we would, were we ever given the chance. He is whole-hearted, brave and dedicated. He...

    Franchise FC

    I know I am not alone in having a real problem with what MK Dons did. Every team has to work their way up but for some reason Winkleman though that he was above all that, stole Wimbledon's identity, under the guise of saving them. Now, and when he got where he wanted to be he has admitted what...

    Listen To The Lessons Of Clough

    On the weekend that saw the UK release of the Brian Clough movie 'The Damned United', it was alarming to see Manchester United's discipline crumbling in a way that 'Old Big 'Ed' would never have tolerated. The legendary Nottingham Forest and Derby manager was rarely short of a quote and I can...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney

    There are many ways to measure greatness: appearances, medals, honours, popularity. Well Ron Pountney sits third in the all-time appearance list, was an integral part of the club's first major title (Division 4, 1980-81) and won the player of the year award a record three times. Ronnie...

    Nervous Gunners Slip Through

    Cesc Fabregas is the youngest Arsenal captain since Tony Adams and, appropriately enough, the new era began much like the old one. The Gunners were tentative and unsure of themselves, but recovered their composure to sneak a victory. One nil to the Arsenal? Meet the new boss, same as the old...

    Scolari New Manager of Chelsea

    Just breaking news is that Portugal coach and former World Cup winner Scolari is the new Manager of Chelsea. Good luck to him - it's a case of win trophies there now or the sack pretty quickly it seems.
  10. Darryl Update

    I'm not one for rumours, but just go on facts. So, just wanted to share with you that Darryl was the presenter at the SUFC soccer school last week in Shoebury, my son is a regular on these courses. Darryl handed out the trophies and signed autographs for a long time. Mrs. F (or she soon will be)...

    Chelsea fans will feel crushed today

    Thanks guys, really glad you liked it! Here's the follow-up: High up near the rafters of the Luzhniki Stadium, as the early morning rain washed away the tears of his expensively assembled superstars, the Super Tsar himself, Roman Abramovich, sat disconsolately wondering what might have been...

    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...

    The Title Race.

    If you had any plans for this Saturday evening, I'd start cancelling them now because this title race is going all the way to the wire. Manchester United's struggles against Brad Friedel Rovers, sorry, Blackburn Rovers brought back memories of their 1995 visit to Upton Park when Ludek Miklosko's...

    Avram Grant’s so-called press conference

    When I saw the transcript of Avram Grant’s so-called press conference I wondered what all the fuss was about. That’s what he’s always like. Not for nothing does he always dress in black. Every Chelsea game I’ve covered this season, and for my sins there have been many, he shuffles into the room...

    Daily Telegraph Fantasy Cricket

    Does anybody on here have a team or are likely to have one in their competition? I have a team already & wondered about setting up a mini-league. I think that there are trophies for each league providing you get over 15 players in your league. Below is the link to enter. If there is enough...

    Spurs Superior To Baffling Blues

    We all chuckled when Jonathan Woodgate claimed that he joined Tottenham in order to have a chance of winning trophies but, appropriately enough, it was the former Middlesbrough centre-back who delivered the long-suffering club their first silverware in nine years at Wembley Stadium. “Scoring...

    McClaren's pre-Croatia match notes leaked

    Shamelessly stolen from another forum, but I don't care :D Mc – Right, Tel, thanks to Israel I can still get us through to the Euros and can’t afford any mistakes. Goalkeeper – who’s the best in the country? TV – Rob Green Mc – Don’t know him. Is he in the squad? TV – No. Mc – Who have we got...
  18. Luis Garcia

    The following is a letter that Garcia wrote to Liverpool FC to put on thier site. A very nice gesture IMHO. Dear Reds, First of all I'd like to apologise for not having been back in touch sooner, but I needed to take some time to take on board all the recent changes and then to put down...

    A bright new day dawns in Suffolk

    There is not a breath in the air, all is still as the sun starts its journey up into an expectant crystal clear blue sky only streaked with early plane trails off to foriegn lands (and Cole Ewe). An early morning frost is quickly burnt away - the chill dawn will soon warm up, and the first...
  20. How great is it being a shrimper...

    What a game football is.  Every Saturday it can destroy the weekend or absolutely make it.  It truly is a game that captivates all the emotions.  But what makes it more is being a shrimper. We don't have too many nights like tonight - we don't win too many trophies - we don't have a great...
