Following this weeks crucial 1-0 victory against Only Fools, we thought we would bring you the wonder strike from the Reds top scorer Ricky Gill.

Gill, now on 7 for the season, drove a fine left footed strike through the legs of the defender and past the flailing keeper.



Reds manager Paul Pannell had a full squad to utilise last night following the inclusion of influential midfielder Craig Victory.

Victory had started all but 1 game for the reds and that game being their only loss last week.

‘’I do partly put the defeat down to the fact that I wasn’t present last week. I had a few loose ends I had to tie up with my book publishers which is why I couldn’t make it’’ chuckled the Wickford chap.

So, following the shock defeat to Rayleigh Wizards last week The Reds needed to bounce back this week.

Prior to kick off, ATFC and the Wizards had just drawn meaning that The FootballHeads could once again open up a gap again of 3 points at the top of the league should they win.

Victory was placed straight into the starting line up and the game was underway.

The FootballHeads started cautious, surely an impact of last weeks shocking defeat.

Flowing movement and intricate passes, this was FootballHeads bouncing back.

Once again, same referee as last week, the Reds were up against it with the whistle happy referee.

Not many chances were created by either team in the first half; most of the battle was being played in the midfield with Victory, Hughes and Webster all on key form.

A few good saves from Reds number 1 Robbins made sure that they were not going to go behind and have to chase the game.

‘’I have looked at my game and decided to hit the gym more. I can see myself bulking up and am currently bench pressing 60kgs, I can feel the benefits and my biceps feel bulging ’’ murmured a pumped up Robbins

To tight to call the first half was brought to an end by the referee.


When interviewed about why the Reds weren’t ahead Pannell declared,

‘’It’s not going well, not good enough, nobody is working hard enough out there’’

The tempo was then upped by Pannells men. Webster twisting and turning down the wing, Gill causing havoc up front for the defenders, Mayes and Rider creating a brick wall at the back.

Then came the turning point of the game, the ever influential Matt Hughes burst down the right pitch side and cross fired the ball into the feet of Gill. Gill spun on his heels opened up his feet and drove a cracking strike through the legs of the defender and pass the diving keeper off the post and in. 1-0!

All that was left was for the FootballHeads to tighten up at the back and midfield, and just see the game out. Then another controversial decision was made.

Following a disallowed goal from Gill (who else!) Matt Hughes saw red mist and unleashed a torrent of abusive aimed at the referee. He then squared up to the man in black and told him what he thought of his performance.

The Ref showed the red card to Hughes and the Reds were forced to carry out the rest of the half with 5 men.

When questioned Hughes stormed,

‘’He’s a F$%king C*&t’’ blasted Hughes.

When asked if he agreed with the red card he squealed,

‘’Nooooo-ooo, I just told him about a few of his decisions’’

Pannell then brought himself on and nailed down at the back

Only fools barely troubled shot stopper Robbins.


The Reds are back on track to win the title; this win puts them 3 points clear at the top and now only they can bring about their downfall.

Was the shock defeat the kick that the FootballHeads needed? Do they have one hand on the title? With only a few games remaining surely silverware is near enough a certainty.

Tune in next week as we bring you all the latest news, view and interviews.

Commmme onnnnnnnn yooooou Reds!

After the reds latest tough thought one nil win over only fools, Reds World can now bring you the official match video.

we all here hope you enjoy


Paul Pannell has been successful in his appeal for the red card shown to Matt Hughes to be rescinded.

Hughes, 24, was sent off for dissent after a decision cost the Reds a second goal.

Later, video evidence proved that the Refs decision was actually incorrect and as a result Hughes will not face a ban. ''I had a word with Matty, i told him his attitude needs to change on the pitch and i wasn't happy with the way he reacted to the decision.'' declared Pannell ''The club takes a strict stance against this kind of behaviour and i will have none of my players behave in this way including Matt, if he doesn't like it then tough luck.'' he screamed.

Hughes was interviewed after his intital card and we can provide you with that interview EXCLUSIVELY, including the incident and Pannells initial reaction to the card.


Following the result last night, we managed to get a quick interview with the elusive Reds managaer Paul Pannell and questioned him on his thoughts and reaction to his teams win after a shocking defeat last week.

Thursday, 21 August 2008


Footballheads had every reason to be confident going into this game, 4 wins from 4 games, sitting pretty at the top of the league 4 points ahead of closest rivals Rayleigh Wizards. Wizards being the only remaining opposition for the FootballHeads.

Matt Hughes returning to the squad but without the utility man Craig Victory.

Unfortunately, the Wizards, only showed up with 5 players so the Reds were forced to side a field of only 5 men meaning 3 subs. This was later to be of a disadvantage to the Reds who are used to playing 6 a side football. Much more space on the pitch made this match completely different from the rest, Wizards coming out strong showing they were to be no push over’s.

Wizards took the lead with some neat play creating space and opening up an opportunity which they took by slotting home past the consistent Robbins in goal.

Reds did not look their usual self but were carving out numerous opportunities but to no avail. Pannell tinkering with the squad, keeping faces fresh to try and change things up. Then came an equaliser at the feet of Reds much talked about Matt Hughes. Hughes placed a fine shot past the Wizards keeper bringing back much needed hope for the FootballHeads. 1-1 Half Time Once again opportunities were coming thick and fast for the Reds but it just wasn’t happening.

L. Mayes, Rider and Pannell solidifying at the back trying to keep the Wizards at bay. Then came a break away from the Wizards, counter play and some neat passes set a Wizard through one on one with Robbins. Robbins spread himself as much as possible and slid down at the feet of the opposition but a fine side foot over the keeper made it 2-1 to the Wizards. This was now unchartered territory for the Reds. Behind with only minutes to go. Defending their The tempo sped up for Pannells men. More opportunities came and went. Just as it was looking as though it just wasn’t their day, Webster, after some fine trickery and skills fell supremely to a clumsy challenge from a Wizards defender in the area.


Webster clutching the ball stepped up to try and pull the equaliser back. Tension, silence. All that was present was a gusty wind. Webster, taking deep breathe struck his shot at goal……………………….


Shock, HORROR! The Wizards keeper leaving a trailing leg, finely saved the shot and deflected it wide. Seconds remaining and about to lose the ‘’Invincibles’’ tag, The Reds frantically tried to get back in the match but it was too late FINAL WHISTLE

The FootballHeads have lost there 100% status and the gap is closed to just one single point. A sympathetic Pannell spoke after the game wimpering ‘’It was just one of those days when it wasn’t going to happen for us. I think the lads gave it their all but with 5 players a side it made the game completely different, more space, and it just didn’t work out for us’’ ‘’We will review the game, I will tell the boys where they went wrong and what they can do to stop it from happening again’’ ‘’There is a down mood coming from the boys at the moment but they need to pick themselves up and just get out there next week and make up for it, I can see us bouncing back next week although it will be tough’’ Luke Mayes was furious with one person in particular after the game and made it known, ‘’The ref was a f£$king joke’’ He blasted ‘’HE cost us that game, he was very whistle happy and the game just could not flow. I felt like nutting him out there’’

So, exactly half of the season gone, the Reds, now without their 100% record STILL sit at the top of the pile but the gap only a single point. Can they do it? How will they react to the defeat? Will it be downhill from now or will the boys bounce back next week? One thing is for sure, we will be there next week and bring you all the latest news as it happens!

Thefootballheads.blogspot can confirm breaking news just in. Matt Hughes has said to have settled his differences with mananger Paul Pannell and the club and is set to make a return to the team tonight as they take on their last remaining opposition.

It is not yet understood how the rest of the team will react to his inclusion but Paul Pannell has reported to have whispered:

''It may get one or two of the boys backs up but Matt has told me where he see's his future and has solidified his commitment to the footballheads. I hope the boys wont give him a hard time settling back in, hopefully Matty will let his football do the talking and prove me right by putting him straight back into the fold''

The Reds player became unsettled earlier in the season and went AWOL whilst considering his options much to the disgruntlement of fellow teammates and fans.

One influencial fan even went as far as demonstrating outside the clubs headquarters and stated

''If that greedy b$%stard doesn't want to commit himself to the club then we should get rid of the arrogant sh%t!''

Hughes was unavailable to comment although we will be pitchside tonight and try to get an interview with the ever arrogant starlet.

So far this campaign The FootballHeads Shot stopper Ben Robbins has been in top form only conceding 3 goals whilst keeping 2 clean sheets!

Here's our tribute to the Reds number 1


Last night saw The FootballHeads take on league contenders ATFC in the fourth game of the season.

This match pitted the league leaders against second place ATFC with just 2 points the difference and both teams defending their undefeated status.

The weather conditions were thought to maybe play a part in the match as strong gusts of winds bleated across the playing field. The atmosphere, intensity and pressure of the game were felt by all.

The Reds, once again without influential playmaker Matt Hughes, looked set to grasp one hand on the league trophy should they pull out a win.

ATFC started the stronger of the two sides, playing very attacking football, whilst Reds seemed to be playing to deep and causing pressure upon themselves.

Constant bombardment from the ATFC players in the first half forced Reds shot stopper Ben Robbins to pull off numerous fine and brave saves, he seemed to be having the game of his life. If it weren’t for the string of saves the Reds could have found themselves in trouble going into the second half.

The best and only real chance of the first half fell to the (at the start of the game joint top goalscorer) feet of Luke Mayes. Mayes one on one with only the keeper to beat decided to go alone but struck a weak shot at the feet of the opposing keeper. Frustration was beginning to be seem on manager Paul Pannells face.

Second Half

Playing into the wind, after a stern half time team talk from the infuriated Pannell, FootballHeads came out of the starting block in a much more positive stance.

Flowing football, acute passes, smooth Runs, this was the kind of performance that is usually seen from the league leaders.

A move started after a fine save and quick thinking by the unbeatable Robbins created an opportunity. He threw the ball out early to L. Mayes and started a counter attack. Mayes burst down the left wing and gave the ball too Ross Webster. Quick thinking Webster spotted the ruthless Ricky Gill in the box and placed a superb cross to him, who then struck a fine volley which cracked against the bar but as it came down it clipped the heal of the keeper and crossed the line. 1-0 ! Gill taking his goal tally to 5 for the season.

More fine saves from unflappable Robbins made sure the lead was kept.

Then came the second and final goal of the game, Leon Rider solid as ever at the back, played a 30yard ball over the top of the defence and into the feet of Gill. Cool calm and collectively the hotshot Gill fired an impressive drive straight pass the ATFC keeper from 10 yards out. 2-0! Gill now on 6 goals

Pannell and Victory then tightened the screws at the back making sure the lead was secure.

‘’The boys gave me a lot to do in the first half’’ growled Robbins. ‘’I was, as ever, up to the task though and made sure I got to everything I possibly could. I just wasn’t going to be beaten out there, I wanted the win so bad’ He yelped.

Robbins was handed the man of the match for his sensational performance.

Delight at the final whistle could be seen on all of the Reds faces but in particular player/manager Paul Pannell.

‘’These boys are f%*$ing sensational. I think I have created an invincible team this year and expect us to go all the way. I cant describe how proud I am of the team, it is an honour to be the manager of this quality club’’ Screeched a tearful Pannell

So, just under halfway through the season the FootballHeads see themselves comfortably at the top of the league, played 4 won 4. Can this be the invincible season, can they do the unthinkable and win every game? One thing is for sure, they will give it their best shot!

Next week the FootballHeads take on Rayleigh Wizards which should see them, once again take all three points based on previous results. The match review will follow after that game.

Wreckless Rider's dangerous tackle to be looked into by the FA's disciplinary board which could then see Rider facing court action and possible ban, tell us what you think?

Here's the video footage of the incident in question


Footballheads versatile utility man and team joker Craig Victory has told of his predictions for the rest of the season.

‘’I think its all down to how much we want it now. We all know we are the best in this league and it’s a question of how hard we push ourselves and how we can all pull together to bring home the silverware this year’’ smirked the Wickford based player.

‘’I’m very vocal on the pitch, and if the gaffer ever needs to pass down the armband im sure I will be first inline to receive it. I think I deserve it.’’

‘’If we carry on working hard like we currently are then there is no doubt in my mind that in 8 weeks time we will be lifting the silverware and crowned league champions’’

Craig got on the score sheet for the first time this season in the Reds last game versus Spatan 7. ‘’I took my goal well, under the intense pressure and expectations I kept my cool out there and confidently slotted home. Hopefully this will now kick-start the goals for me.’’

Victory will be heading down to Waterstones in Basildon on Saturday afternoon, signing copies of his new autobiography ‘Born To Be Victorious’

So here it is The FootballHeads Vs Spatan 7

Wednesday, 6 August 2008


Rumours have been circulating that FootballHeads star, Matt Hughes, has been linked with a move away from the club.

Hughes was unpresent at the last match which could indicate he is looking for a possible move away from the club and so far hasn't been in contact with the Reds gaffer.

''I know Hughesy had issues with his contract, and after his last fine performances he has caught the eye of 1 or 2 clubs. I will be speaking to him this week though and discuss the matter. I am confident Hughesy will remain committed to the club and be a vital player this season.'' Said Pannell

We will bring you more information as it develops on this interesting story.


Footballheads continued there 100% record and domination of the Division 1 league with another impressive victory over a tough Spatan 7 side.

Returning to the squad, Leon Rider 20 (Chest Infection) but without recent hero Matt Hughes (Holiday/AWOL) the Reds got off to an even start to the encounter. Some neat passing and creative movement for Pannells men were getting them into some promising opportunities but it took all of 8 minutes for the Reds to strike first. Utility man Craig Victory pounced after a mistake from the Spatan keeper with a great poke to beat the unavailing Spatan keeper and give his side a deserved lead.

Then came two more goals before half time. Hitman Ricky Gill was the scorer of both, the first a clinical finish after a lay off from the tricky Webster who skinned a defender before laying it on a plate to the Reds hitman, but the second was a piece of magic. Some great fast passing from his teammates saw Gill into some space who sublimy slotted home an acute first time shot.

Controversy followed when claims were made by several Spatan players that the ball had gone through the side netting but after an inspection from the referee and video evidence the goal counted. 3-0

A Great first half from the Reds, all battling hard and creating good chances. Webster carving out his ballerinic style runs and passes and Rider dominating at the back like a brick wall


Not the best start to the half which saw Spatan strike soon after the break with a quick poachers goal which Reds keeper Ben Robbins could do nothing about. 3-1

Some point blank stops from Robbins were proving why he is now firmly Pannells number one choice between the sticks and keeping his side on top.

More Battling from Pannell, Rider, L. Mayes and Victory were showing why the club is sat at the top of the pile and the most feared team in the league.

After persistent closing down on the keeper by L. Mayes the Reds current joint top scorer managed to fprce an error out of the shotstopper and an accurate curling cross from the ever consistent Ross Webster saw Mayes bravely head home followed by a flapping keeper. 4-1

Luke Mayes then turned from hero to villan as he clumsily hacked down a Spatan front runner in the penalty area which gave the oppostion a much needed chance to get back into the game.

Robbins, bouncing on his line managed to force the taker to shoot wide. ''I practice penalties after every training session and have a system that works, i had it covered even if it would've hit the target'' proclaimed the Reds Keeper.

Dan Mayes, making his second appearance back after a career threatening injury was brought on to try and close down the opposition. Things were looking ok until he lunged into a 50/50 ball with his left leg (the career threatened one) and collided with the Spatan defender. After picking himself up Mayes felt a sprain in his ankle and had to be substituted. ''Things seemed fine out there, i was trying to get stuck in and it backfired on me. I've had a rough time of injuries lately but hopefully this will be healed by next week'' he muttered.

Spatan then provided an unexpected scare for Reds when they managed to slot home again. After a fine block from Robbins the rebound sat kindly at the Spatan forwards feet and all he had to do was slot home. Rider tried to get a hand on it but to no avail. 4-2

Pannell and Victory (the vocals of the team) were keeping play flowing and raising the tempo of the game.

Player/Manager/Captain Paul Pannell then for the 3rd successive game lost his head again as he chopped at one of the opposition. ''I went for the ball but caught the guy. He didn't like it but I told him if he wanted some then to bring it'' . The referee took no action against the Reds skipper though.

The returning Leon Rider put in an astounding performance at the back for the Reds and was as solid as a brick wall the whole game putting in numerous crunch and last ditch tackles and wearing his heart on his sleeve for the club. ''It was great to be back out there, i really missed not being part of the set up last week'' Rider said.


Squad : Robbins, Pannell, Victory, Rider, L. Mayes, Gill, Webster, D. Mayes

Man Of The Match: Leon Rider

(Due to technical difficulties we regret to inform that this weeks match wasn't recorded as someone didn't hit the record button. Rest assured next weeks game will be brought to you in video as soon as possible)
