    Brave Arsenal Squeeze Through

    Roma 1-0 Arsenal (6-7 on pens) (Juan, 9) We've always known that Arsenal's kids are talented. Now we know that they're brave as well. After an energy-sapping 120 minutes in the Stadio Olimpico, 111 of them played without their single goal safety net, they picked themselves up off the floor and...

    Hiddink's Hairdryer

    Juventus 2-2 Chelsea (2-3 agg) (Iaquinta 19) (Essien 45+1) (Del Piero 74) (Drogba 83) Guus Hiddink was hired to bring some tactical sophistication to an underwhelming team, but according to Ray Wilkins, it was an old-fashioned half-time hairdryer that carried Chelsea to the last eight of the...

    Long Way To Go

    There's a long way to go yet. After an almost flawless first year in charge, Fabio Capello was brought crashing down to earth in Seville by a breath-taking Spanish side who taught him a hard lesson in what it takes to win international honours. England kept pace with the European Champions for...

    Pre-Match Thread Ayrshire Blue's Swindon Preview.

    Swindon Town vs Southend United 
7/2/2009 This weekend sees Southend travel to the County Ground to face Swindon Town, With the adverse weather conditions causing havoc there is still a slight doubt as to whether the game will be on or not. Both teams are in need of the points with Southend in...

    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...

    The Fall of Roman's Empire?

    The rumours that Roman Abramovich is attempting to sell Chelsea may have been quickly denied by the club, but when you stack up the numbers, it's all too plausible. Stamford Bridge has been a black hole for the Russian oligarch's cash and, in a year when he's lost so much money elsewhere, it...
  8. I need a plan...

    Slightly odd question... How do i convince my parentals to let me go on the train to the Stockport game? (I'm 16) I need to go in with a good tactic otherwise they'll flatly refuse and i won't get my fix of proper football! I'd be going with my Blackpool fan friend on account that no-one else i...

    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...

    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report. Cheltenham Town 25/11/08

    A Night at the Races. This Tuesday the 25th of November the Mighty Shrimpers have a nice away trip to Whaddon Road which is the home of Cheltenham Town Football Club. Our last trip to Whaddon Road was a night game on a cold friday night in February where we witnessed a 1-1 draw. A crowd of...

    Question For FM 09 fans - club colours

    I know that this is probably a fairly trivial detail for most of you FM players, but I'm having a little debate right now with my Head Researcher. Most of you will know that the title bar that displays your name or your teams name in game is in the club's home colours. Based on our home shirt...

    Harry On Up The Table

    What a turnaround! Tottenham Hotspur, who accumulated just two points in over two months with Juande Ramos, have now racked up seven in the last seven days and you can put them all down to the Harry Redknapp factor. The former Portsmouth boss has put a spring in Spurs' step and after two...

    Best Essex tune.

    I'm going to go for this one: Depeche Mode - New Life Not only does it remind me of early 80's childrens show 'Seaview' and Defender machines covered in fag burns but I think Vince Clarke is an extremely talented bloke.

    Fear The Andorrans!

    The time for talking is over. Platitudes have no place on the pitch, especially when the going gets as tough as it will on Saturday night. Fabio Capello's England will be right up against it when they travel to Spain to face the butchers, bakers and candlestick-makers of Andorra's national...

    Ljungberg agrees to leave Hammers

    "West Ham have released midfielder Freddie Ljungberg after an agreement was reached to terminate his contract." Source: bbc.co.uk I have to say I am a little bit suprised at this - what a coup it would be if T&B could convince him to revitalise his career down at Roots Hall!! **ah well we all...

    How To Poop At Work

    We've all been there but don't like to admit it. We've all kicked back in our cubicles and suddenly felt something brew down below. As much as we try to convince ourselves otherwise, the WORK POOP is inevitable. For those who hate pooping at work, following is the Survival Guide for taking a...

    Hull City

    Hull City, a gritty northern side who were in the bottom division of English football just four years ago, are now 90 minutes away from the bright lights of the Premier League. Manager Phil Brown only took over in January 2007 when the Humberside team were paddling in the relegation zone, but...

    Apprentice week 8

    Not as good an episode as last week's, but still quite fun to watch. With Lucinda as PM for Alpha and Helene for Renaissance, the two teams had to select two items to showcase at the National Wedding Fair, with the one gaining the most orders being the winner. Helene and Sara were moved to...

    Reserve League Play-Off Final

    Liverpool's senior side may not picked up any silverware this year, but on Wednesday night at Anfield, Gary Ablett's reserve team were on hand to show them how it's done. Having won their regional divisional with room to spare, the youngsters were sent out to face Aston Villa's second string for...
