  3. Man City Ask To Break Simple Rules

    Just what is it with Premier League clubs having a very limited understanding of just how transfer windows work? If it isn't Portsmouth asking for permission to sell players just because they're skint, it's Man City begging to sign a 'keeper. Due to some remarkable oversight, when Shay Given...

    Deadline Day Drama! (sort of)

    Transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting of the season and, with the window slamming shut right on our deadline, you're not going to miss a thing. We told Iain Macintosh to power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours. Here's how his day panned...

    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...

    Score It, O'Hara!

    Someone really needs to find out what Harry Redknapp is saying at half-time, because if we can patent and market it, we'll make a fortune. After an abject first half at White Hart Lane, Tottenham burst into life in the second, scoring four goals in twenty minutes, helped in no small way by the...

    Col U, the very wet Irish, and SZ rogues gallery

    Saturday started off as any other of our travels over to see Southend: Leaving for the airport at 4am. Conditions were cold, but no rain. Yet. Arrived at the very rain swept Stansted at 7:55am to grab the bus later to Southend, and got dropped off on Victoria Avenue at 10:50. Rain was so bad...

    Fancy a swim?

    If you like doing laps in the swimming pool, you might want to stock up on the energy drinks before diving in to this one. It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres, had a 115ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water. Yesterday the Guinness Book of Records named the vast pool...

    Pants or Boxers

    With the unnecesary mention of pants just now on the xmas present thread I wondered how many of you actually wear these horrid restricting excuses for underwear. My perception of underwear - for men at least, is that it is a garment to keep you slightly warmer and to prevent your "under...

    Freddy Eastwood

    Wolves game against Charlton got the nod to come on with 30 mins to play started to get his track suit off then was told not to bother and didn't get on. Hmmmmm How long till Freddy gets fed up of being a bench warmer?? He is too good to sit on the bench, why is Prick McCarthy doing this to him?

    Amy Winehouse

    She's got one hell of a great and distinctive voice. Makes a change from the normal run of the mill female vocalists that are churned out these days. Watch her live in this footage from this years winter warmer Amy, and see what you think. She may not be everybodys cup of tea, but what a...
  15. O's Eye Ronaldo Move

    O's eye Ronaldo move RONALDO could find himself playing in London next season but not for any of the capital's big guns. Fans at Leyton Orient are on a mission to persuade the Brazilian striker to trade Real Madrid for the bright lights of League One football. And they are dipping into...
  16. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset


    The games where you see the fans wearing colurs in order always look quite impressive I think. The Champ League final tonight was another example where the Arsenal fans were in blocks of yellow and white and the Barca fans in blocks of red and blue. Presumably they all get a free shirt on their...

    Lets be honest! SUFC player next year or a Premier$hite player?? Me thinks SUFC til mid season then goals permitting a bench warmer at a club like Charlton for eg???

    Premier League Rants!

    NEWCASTLE and BOBBY ROBSON Robson has lost it. As much as I like Robbo, I do think at 70-odd you shouldnt be a manager as you cannot get intimate respect from your players. What I mean is you cannot have the close contact of training every day - I doubt he even takes the training sessions on a...
