  1. Pre-Match Thread Blackburn Rovers V Southend United

    Big game again this weekend with Rovers likely to be as "up" for it and as quick out of the blocks as Plymouth. Ewood Park ought to have a good playing surface and dealt with all the rain Up North. I do not know of any fresh injury concerns so I expect SCP to send out the same starting 11 as...

    Absolutely superb today! Easily my man of the match in a game where the whole team were excellent! I feel he gets way too much stick on here and not the credit he deserves! Very solid and reliable RB! Fantastic team performance today today & a well deserved win! UTB!!!

I've followed and dipped into the shrimper zone site , and can personally identify with the...

  20. +'s and -'s

    Well the carousel has turned again and many fans have waved goodbye to pessimism and are sold on the annual 'we can do this' donkey. What are the pluses? a) A small but seemingly competitive squad. b) Player versatility in most positions...
