  1. Finish with a whimper or a BANG!

    ? What is it to be for the final stretch of the season? We can't win anything by playing safe: so now lets try and get some goals and entertain. We have 4 very good (for this division) strikers and we may as well have them all on the pitch together. We may concede a few (we are anyway) BUT we...

    Team for next season...

    Yes I am hurting, yes I am frustrated and yes, I am on the verge of tears after seeing us hand our League 1 place over to Notts County with a whimper, but having had a night of disturbed sleep upon which to reflect and start thinking about next season, I think we actually could have the spine of...
  5. ESB's Champions League Run Down

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...
  6. King Flintoff Ends Aussie Reign

    Australia's 75 year reign at Lords came tumbling down with a whimper, as King Flintoff gave England victory on the back of his first five wicket haul at the ground. Nothing could suppress the nerves at the Home of Cricket this morning, a terrific stand of 185 between Michael Clarke and Brad...

    Fergie Must Quit

    I have a dream. I have a dream of Rome, May 27. I see Rio Ferdinand lifting the Champions League trophy, I see Wayne Rooney throwing his shirt into the crowd, but most of all, I see Sir Alex Ferguson leaning into a camera crew and, above the roar of the crowd, giving them the scoop of their...

    Scouting at Grays

    Magnum decided to head down to Grays vs Rushden for some first hand intelligence on four of our old players. Great decision ! 0-0 Here was the lowdown Tommy Black (Centre Midfield) - Subbed after 60 minutes for a kid. Played in the centre of midfield and looked a pale shadow of the player...

    Scolari Still Not Happy

    Under ordinary circumstances with an ordinary manager, a 4-0 victory in the Champions League might be considered worthy of celebration. However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that Luiz Felipe Scolari is very far from ordinary. "We did not play very well," he complained afterwards. "We made...

  11. Harold Bishop Killer

    Thought Of The Day

    You should not got to your grave as a shadow of your former self, with no more than a whimper and a pray. You should go to it flying along with a beer in one hand, cigar in the other, shouting 'Wow! What a ride!'

    This Summer's Transfer Targets

    This Summer's Transfer Targets Christoph Metzelder You only had to watch the last 20 minutes of Arsenal's defeat at Stamford Bridge to appreciate how much the Gunners need a big man at the back next season, and it's not going to be Philippe Senderos. Christophe Metzelder was once considered...

    Games to Celebrate

    For those who memories are short this is what happened just under a year ago: The game started and unbelievably we took the lead after only 13 minutes, we should have made it two but Southampton pulled it level before half time.

    Our Support is f%cking sh!t

    We must have one of the most pathetic crowds in the league. I preferred it when we had 3-5,00ish and at least backed the team fully. These days we need support more than ever and is it there? Is it bollocks! We can only get excited when we're winning or beating Man U! Today the...

    The fbm view and ratings

    Southend blasted Brentford apart in front of over 10,000 fans at Roots Hall to storm back to the top of league one. In the past, Blues have normally suffered stage fright on such occasions but it became evident as soon as the players ran out onto the pitch that they were pumped up for this one...

    The fbm view and ratings

    Bitter? I bloody well am. Firstly, well done Torquay, and good luck in Div 2.  Maybe we'll see you there in 2005/6. Those who know me will confirm that it takes a lot for me to get out of my box but today I witnessed some of the most appalling decision making by match officials I have ever...
