  1. Journeymen

    Was reading the papers following the Chelsea game and interested to read the number of times Mildenhall was described as a journeyman lower league goalkeeper. It got me thinking that in our current crop of players, and seeing as we've been in the lower leagues all but one of the last ten or so...

    Pietersen gone?

    Reports are suggesting Pieterson has stepped down as captain following his row with Peter Moores. This seems to have been prompted by reports both were to be sacked. With the ashes coming up this year I find it a shame as I wouldnt really want our best batter disrupted or unhappy with his...

    Interview with an Exile - Part 11: The tables have turned!

    Hi folks, This will be the final Interview with an Exile for Series 1, and I thought I would give some of the people I have cheekily edited on here over the past few months the opportunity to get their own back. So in the series finale, I am answering the questions! Would like to thank...

    Dan Harding - do we really want him?

    I'm honestly not sure about this. Harding has done well for us, but I'd say he'd filled a spot well rather than setting the word alight. I've never been as impressed with him as I was with Charlie Mulgrew for instance. I'd certainly take him during the window if the price was right, but I...

    Tilly and Brush - going nowhere

    Oh my God - yes it's (yet) another Steve Tilson thread... and I would like to say that in making this I am only too well aware that this is a public forum and everyone is entitled to their opinion. But Christ there is a lot of tripe spouted on here. OK, lets start just by recapping on two...

    UK set for Siberian January...

    As I mentioned last week, we could be on the verge of a major spell of winter weather. Mostly dry and cold for the next week or so, but after that we could be in for some serious snow, especially Mon/Tues next week. Then again, the media have gone into ramp mode, so that will probably mean...

    West Brom scout in the East Stand...

    ...looked like he was keeping tabs on Revell and , when he came on, Barney. The guy said he was at the Shrewsbury v Wycombe match recently and we wouldn't believe how much Matt Harrold has improved under Peter Taylor's coaching. Seems they haven't forgotten the goal Matty nicked against...
  8. Why did people boo Constantine?

    Very disappointed that a few people booed him today. He was the one decent player we had when we were a very poor team. Okay he left because he got a better deal but wouldn't we all leave our jobs if we got offered a better paid job elsewhere? Also if Constantine had of stayed then maybe...

    I am honoured

    Tonight is the eve that many will prepare to celebrate the birth of their Christ which is something I wouldn't dream of knocking. But tonight I find out that I might just be a God. For one of my neighbours has tonight become the proud owners of 6 German Shepard puppies and one has been named...

    Look at it this way

    Before i start i should say that those in the Chat Room will have seen me state that it was close to ask Tilly to leave but i take it back. Just think of were we would be without Tilly and Brushy. If they hadn't been appointed as manager and assistant manager then i'd be pretty sure that we...
  12. If Trafalgar was today..

    Nelson: "Order the signal, Hardy!" Hardy: "Aye, aye sir." Nelson: "Hold on, that's not what I dictated to Flags. What's the meaning of this?" Hardy: "Sorry sir?" Nelson (reading aloud): "'England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation...

    EPL Half-Term Reports Pt II

    Bolton - Not one of our most popular pupils, this one. Prone to fits of violence and if there's a ruckus in the playground, you'll invariably find him at the centre of it. That said, he has settled into his work better this term and is beginning to achieve some reasonable grades. A bit more...

    Roll on November

    From Jennifer Aniston's new calendar - http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2008/12/jennifer-aniston-2009-calendar-on-sale-now/ I was going to post the pic straight onto here but thought I'd do a link instead as the shot is a bit 'raunchy' and I wouldn't want to get anyone into trouble at...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Chris Powell

    Fighting Talk on Radio 5 Live has a segment called Defending the Indefensible where pundits or comedians (note Mark Lawrensen the two are separate) are given an outrageous statement that they have to somehow justify for 30 seconds of airtime. Now I've always fancied my chances of playing devil's...

    Super Night of Boxing

    Tomorrow night should be a cracker of a night of boxing and topping it all off should be the fight of the year between De la hoya and Pacquiao , the two lads are pure class and wouldn't like to call this one although Oscar looks the naturally bigger guy of the two. Also fighting is Khan , cook...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 6 - A Century United

    This week, Tom (A Century United) from all the way up the top of Scotland answers the questions. Below is a picture of him amongst the starting 11 for the League 2 Playoff Final. The woman in white sitting on the number 1 forgot her boots that day, thus why Duncan Jupp got the nod. 1) How...

    I am deliberating emailing my Gooner mate & Arsene himself regarding a one week lone of Robin Van Persie for the first week in 2009, of course, he wouldn't be cup tied etc - well not until he returns to Arsenal anyway! Throwing in the usual free lodgings, stick of rock, kiss me quick hat etc -...

    Harry's Nostalgia - York (Dec 92)

    Please forgive this old git a bit of self indulgence, but as this is my 10,000th post, and before I get back to working for a living, I decided I would do another away day article. For the purpose of this article I have chosen an away trip to York in December 1972. As ever my memory played...
