    Things You've Broken at Home and Got Away With

    Years ago, when I was still at school I had an 18th birthday party in my parents' house. My parents were very sensible and booked into a hotel for the night. That was partly to do with noise, and partly to do with the fact that about 20-30 people stayed over because they had travelled long...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 2

    "This football club has lacked direction for a long time," Ron Martin told the Evening Echo's Bernie Friend in mid-September 2000. On the pitch Southend United were struggling at wrong end of the Third Division table, having notched up just one win from their opening seven games of the season...
  7. Disappointment

    Coming off the back of a 7-0 humiliation of East Thurrock, I for one expected more. Yes I know that they were only East Thurrock, but to win 7-0 is emphatic to say the least. Tonight the Blues were very slow to get out of the blocks. Penned back in our own half for a good solid 10-15 minutes in...

    Toughest quiz of the year
