Disappointing news -for me - as Southend lose in the Cup to Spurs:

Southend boss Steve Tilson was unable to hide his disappointment after his side's narrow quarter-final defeat.

"Considering the desire and commitment we showed it should have gone to penalties," said Tilson.

"It's even harder to swallow given that the goal was offside," added Tilson, referring to Defoe's winner.

"Credit to my players because we were up against a side that has won their last 10 games."

Bad behaviour in Scotland leads to action against those accused of singing sectarian chants and throwing missiles onto the pitch. Quite how this idea of punishing whole fan clubs will pan out is however slightly worrying

Rangers have suspended the registration of an East Kilbride supporters' club following a missile throwing incident and sectarian singing at Tynecastle.

One individual has also been banned from attending all Rangers matches.

Laurence Macintyre, head of safety, said: "Supporters' clubs must realise that they will be held responsible for the behaviour of those occupying their allocated seats on match days."

An object was thrown on to the pitch during last month's game with Hearts.

Mr Macintyre added: "The supporters' club in question received only three tickets for the match but claimed they did not know who had used them.

"This obstructed our inquiries and prevented us from reaching the actual person or persons involved in this incident.

"We were also made aware of sectarian singing in the same seating area and, as a result of this, and the missile throwing incident, the registration of the supporters' club has been suspended.

And Coker gets hate mail, much of it racist, from West Ham scumbags

West Ham captain Nigel Reo-Coker has received hate mail during the club's recent run of bad form.

Some fans blamed him for the sacking of boss Alan Pardew and hate mail was sent to the club before he scored Sunday's winner against Manchester United.

"It got to a boiling point for a young man," his agent Tony Finnigan told BBC Five Live Sport.

"I told him to stick it in the dustbin and get ready to go to war against one of the best teams in Europe."
