    Furious Phil Unleashes Hell

    Arsenal 2-1 Hull City (Van Persie, 74) (Barmby, 12) (Gallas, 84) Phil Brown's phone will be red hot by now. In one exhilarating ten minute press conference, the furious Hull City manager unleashed a string of attacks aimed at everyone he deemed responsible for his team's exit. He accused Cesc...

    FAO Mr Peter Clarke

    I know some people on here have good connections at the Club, and that some Club officials read this forum so I was hoping this will get passed onto Peter Clarke if at all possible. Clarke, First of all, I was the bloke in the white adidas jumper in East Reds that had a pop at you, and others...

    Proof that some footballers are thick as **** !!

    "My parents have always been there for me, ever since I was about 7." David Beckham "I would not be bothered if we lost every game as long as we won the league." Mark Viduka "Alex Ferguson is the best manager I've ever had at this level. Well, he's the only manager I've actually had at this...
  4. Ref Watch ..... Tranmere

    Or perhaps this should be a refblog ? Anyway, referee Dean Whitestone from Northampton, in his third season as a Football League referee, makes his fourth visit to Roots Hall. His most recent visit kicked off the season with our win over Peterborough when three visitors were cautioned. Prior to...

    No Respect From Scolari

    Respect? Not at Stamford Bridge. Four wins on the bounce should be enough to cheer any manager up, but Luis Felipe Scolari still found reason to storm down the tunnel after his side's 2-0 win over Middlesbrough. It was assistant manager Ray Wilkins who was left to shake hands with the opposition...

    Magical Modric

    Spread the word, Luka Modric has arrived. After six months of being kicked off the ball, stamped into the mud and having his pocket money stolen by the bigger boys, the little Croatian wizard has finally put in a performance worthy of his reputation. He tore Stoke City apart at White Hart Lane...

    Terry and Lampard at Full Time

    At full time some of the Chelsea players applauded our fans which I thought was a nice touch. As John Terry was near the tunnel applauding he turned back to Lampard and pointed to the fans almost telling him to applaud us. Lampard looked at us and turned his nose up before begrudgingly...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-4 Chelsea

    Scolari Safe... For Now Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be in the mood to be pleasant to any of his players after a week of backbiting and under-achievement, but if he has any sense, he'll give Petr Cech a very firm pat on the back. The word 'crisis' may be overused in football, but had it not been...

    Supporting a club like Southend United

    As I sat high up in the Shed End at Stamford Bridge enjoying our moment in the sun on the greyest of winter days, soaking up the Blue Voice inspired atmosphere, taking in the flag-waving travelling Shrimper army bedecked in yellow and coping with the perforation of my ear-drums from an incessant...

    Is Ronaldo Growing Up?

    So that's the World Player of the Year, the Balon D'or, the PFA Player of the Year, the Football Writers Footballer of the Year, the European Golden Shoe and something called the FIFPro Award. It seems that the only thing Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't won in the last twelve months is the US election...

    Ronaldo crashes Ferrari on way to training

    Cristiano Ronaldo has escaped unhurt after crashing his Ferrari sports car into a roadside barrier in a tunnel near Manchester airport. The car was badly damaged when it was involved in the accident at 10.20am today on the A538 Wilmslow Road, but the 23-year-old Manchester United winger was...
  12. Question Can we create our away atmosphere at home?

    When Chelsea come to town next week we are going to want to make it as uncomfortable for them as possible. They're going to hate the tiny dressing rooms, the cramped tunnel, everything, but we need to make them wish they were back in there when they come out and face a Roots Hall cauldron...

    The Strife of Riley

    You have to take your consolations where you can in life. On an evening when he was bellowed at by Southampton's manager Jan Poortvliet and widely abused by over 30,000 home fans, Mike Riley should draw solace from the fact that he lives in Leeds, some 205 miles away from the St Mary's Stadium...

    Question Sky coverage of Southend v Manure Game

    Quick question, On the sky coverage of the Southend v Manure game did anyone else notice that at the start on the second half Freddy walks out of the tunnel quite determined looking walking along the half way line to take up his position and on the edge of the D, also on the half way line is a...
  15. Ref Watch ...... Swindon

    After last week's double misfortune to, firstly, lose a decent referee to injury and then get Kettle as a replacement, this Saturday brings Gavin Ward to Roots Hall for his third visit. This is his second season as a League referee. His two previous games were the JPT defeat on pens by Dagenham...

    Is Football ****ed?

    They say that a week is a long time in politics but, in football, it's a veritable epoch. This time seven days ago, Manchester City were struggling to pay their players, West Ham were enjoying their best start to a season in nine years and, at a surprisingly perky and entertaining Newcastle...
  18. Surgery stories....

    Had my carpal tunnel done on my right hand today. Surgeon opened my hand up and when he had snipped the offending ligament, he showed me the workings of my hand, which was nice of him. The best bit was when he tugged on each of my tendons in turn, and my fingers curled up one by one. I've used...
