    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...

    Have non-playing staff salaries been paid ?

    More to the point have you been paid because I hear you ain't
  5. The Everlasting Debate

    I have pestered the wee birdie to allow me to answer the minority who still insist on tarring our manager as a hoofball purist.After watching Northampton who are undefeated having adopted a more direct approach and knowing Fleetwood, Oxford, Bradford, Torquay Rotherham and many more have...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Oxford

    What a battle this should prove to be. 1st v 4th. The two best defences in League Two go head to head. With us undefeated in 6 at The hall. Oxford on the road have been a bit up and down - P8 W4 D1 L3 F8 A7. But you only have to look at their goals For and Against to realise that they are a...

    All Hail New Zealand

    The only undefeated side in the entire World Cup.
  8. Southend Gloryhunter

    Just finished a book called 'I am the Gloryhunter', which is basically about a bloke who picks a team at the start of the season and changes sides each time the team he is supporting loses. Clearly Southend fell short of going the whole season without losing - though we went 5 games undefeated...

    Harry's Nostalgia - North Bank Memories

    With the imminent return to the North Bank, albeit for two games I thought I'd share a few memories with you, while I still have them that is. Firstly though a big well done to Smiffy, TrueBlue and all the others who have worked hard to achieve this. :clap: From the first day I stepped into...

    McLaren takes FC Twente to joint top of the Eridivisie with 48 points form 18 games and still undefeated. Will this bloke ever get back into the Prem?
  12. Hands Up Who Paid for That...

    I'll admit it. I paid the full £14 to watch 76 seconds of boxing last night. I was fooled by a Jewish New Yorker who talked a good game, but failed to mark his words with any kind of action. After taking two attempts and a stripping to make the 10 stone weight limit, Dmitriy Salita informed a...
  13. Five Star Pac Man Reigns Supreme.

    If ever there was any doubt regarding Manny Pacquiao's claim to the pound-for-pound crown, it was swept away with a simply stunning performance last night. The Phillipino, dubbed Pac Man, stormed to a win over the supremely talented Miguel Cotto and, in doing so, claimed his fifth world title...

    The College Football Thread

    I've been meaning to start a College Football thread since the season started, and now that the Crimson Tide are number one in the AP and BCS rankings, I've finally got round to it....... It pains me to say it, but I don't see Alabama as the Number One team in the country, but they will play...

    Back from Gresty....

    ... and what a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon it was too! I thought the first half performance was the best 45 minutes football Southend have played for a long, long time... certainly the best this season. They were 1st to every ball, never allowed Crewe a second on the ball, were a yard...

    Joe Calzaghe vowed to end Bernard Hopkins' illustrious career when the two men came face to face in London to hype their Las Vegas super-fight. The undisputed super-middleweight champion will fight Hopkins at the light-heavyweight limit on 19 April. "This will be Bernard Hopkins' last fight,"...

    Training today at Gloucester Park

    Went to the park today to have alook at the 07/08 Champions. They all looked refreshed after their breaks and couldn't wait to the season to start. Freddy WAS there and was constantly getting ribbed by Clarkey "what's the latest rumour about you today then?" Darryl did have his two little...
