    I seem to have unintentionally acquired a cat...

    Slightly random, I know. But about 3 months ago, a cat started appearing in our back garden on a pretty consistent basis. He then started noticing when we were getting home from work and waiting for the back gate to open before darting in and sitting in/rolling around in the garden wanting us to...
  2. Breaking News New Commercial Director

    Starting around mid September, Southend United have acquired the services of Danny Macklin who will be filling the role of Commercial Director, a position he has previously held at Essex County Cricket Club. He is generally thought by most Essex supporters to have done a rather better job than...
  3. SupaBlues


    Hi good people of SZ. Just after a bit of advice. I have a huge dilemma that will shape the rest of my life. I was with my partner for the best part of 20 years. About 5 years ago I found out that I had a daughter, who was 17 when I knew, and we had also discovered it was not possible for my ex...

    Question Stephen Fry - Is he a massive ****?

    I was sickened to see a programme called 'Stephen Fry - Gadget man' on Channel 4 whilst flicking channels. The question - is he a massive **** and why? You would have thought it would be pretty hard to burn through the good will acquired as Melchett in Blackadder but there you go.

    Have non-playing staff salaries been paid ?

    More to the point have you been paid because I hear you ain't
  7. The Everlasting Debate

    I have pestered the wee birdie to allow me to answer the minority who still insist on tarring our manager as a hoofball purist.After watching Northampton who are undefeated having adopted a more direct approach and knowing Fleetwood, Oxford, Bradford, Torquay Rotherham and many more have...
  8. DoDTS

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...
  9. The Guardian, Tax Avoidance and Hypocrisy

    Giving that The Guardian is an oft referenced publication on this forum, I thought it would be worth highlighting some hypocrisy in their editorial stance. We know that they are very much against tax avoidance, especially the use of offshore trusts and entities. Surely they would never use...

    Thierry Henry signs for New York Red Bulls

    http://www.newyorkredbulls.com/news/2010/07/new-york-red-bulls-sign-international-star-thierry-henry You gotta love this at the bottom of the above article for all those thick Americans.
  13. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...

    Sven Will It Go Wrong?

    In 2001, in the wake of the dotcom crash, I lost my job. For 18 months, I had been the deputy shift leader of a surly band of financial journalists, charged with staying up all night and reviewing the first editions of the newspapers for a raft of corporate clients. It wasn't much, but it was a...

    Haven't seen this anywhere else yet...... Chairman's Blog What a good day Saturday was and with nothing to play for I thought that the team performed well and remained committed to the cause right to the end. It was also a day to celebrate the success of the Club’s youth policy which, I...

  19. Elbow Playing at the Cliffs

    I know there are a few Elbow fans who visit this forum, so I just thought I'd give a 'heads up' on the fact that they are playing the Cliffs Pavilion next year March 1st (a Sunday I believe). My tickets already safely acquired - can't wait.
