    Indoor Digital Aerial

    I am going to get my son a TV for his bedroom for xmas and was going to buy an Indoor Aerial. I have checked for the local digital Transmitters but it doesn't look like any are very close, Crystal Palace seems to be closest. Does anyone use an Indoor Aerial at all and if so do you get any...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 3-1 Sheffield United

    Superb performance and result! At half time things could easily have gone the way of Rochdale, the defending for their goal was shocking and we looked nervous at the back throughout, but that was still a quality performance. Bentley 7 Couple of shaky moments but did everything he had to do well...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-1 Swindon Town

    Same old, same old as we dominate and lose again. Almost identical to Brighton only we had even better chances and dominated more and their goal didn't come so late on. Hunt could've scored and should've done better when he hit straight at the keeper at his near post, as should Payne when he...
  4. Set Pieces

    As someone rightly pointed out in another thread that we seem to lack a presence in the box for corners, I thought a new thread to cover set pieces should be discussed. This season in particular we don't seem to be a threat from them. Not just corners but free kicks and throw-ons. Without...

    Our system

    Under PB we have played good, smooth football which is nice to watch. We get the ball wide and, yesterday in particular, put some good crosses in. The trouble is that we haven't got the aerial strength up top to take advantage of that. We need a bit of a change in my opinion. Subject to...

    If the game had finished at half time today...

    ...we would be saying how well we played. I could totally understand the system switch; we played narrower, with no wingers, because Weston and Coulthirst are not going to win aerial battles. With those two plus Payne and Clifford we have players with quick feet that can switch the ball about...

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...

    Name that ground-from the air

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/quiz/2013/may/29/football-quiz-name-stadiums-aerial-view Football quiz. How many of these football grounds can you name from the aerial view?

    Underperforming Telly !!!

    I realise i'm leaving myself open to the undeniable "wit" of the Shrimper nation here, but nonetheless i have a problem and quite frankly don't really know where to turn I have lost the picture on my tv .. i can still hear it ok so i'm loathe to just bin it and buy another straight off, its not...
  10. Historic photo of the old Kursaal ground

    There's an aerial view from 1928 of the old Kursaal ground on the new Britain from Above website. Follow this link if you want to have a look. http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/image/epw024877?search=Southend&ref=7

    My view on the season as a whole and those 83 points gained

    There's lot of talk on here that we got 83 points which should/would have been enough for promotion in other years. A points tally in itself is meaningless, if you have a lot of strong teams consistently winning and picking up points you will need more than average to gain automatic promotion...
  12. Bring Paterson or Flood in from the cold

    This Saturday against Bristol Rovers I think there needs to be a change and we need players in the side who want to be there and will fight for a place. Still for whatever reason PS does not rate Paterson but he should be given a go upfront with Benyon he is an aerial threat and is young and...
  13. Dickinson's Role

    CP said something on the radio yesterday, he said that Dickinson is one of our most inconsistent players, on his day he can be brilliant, but on the other days he won't win anything all game, there is no middle ground with him. I agree with this 100%, I also think the people defending him when...

    Stoke-on-Trent

    "Can't remember where I read it, but: "Not one German bomb dropped on Stoke-on-Trent in World War Two. This, apparently, was because a group of high-ranking Luftwaffe officers, grouped around a table and studying aerial reconnaissance photographs of the area, concluded it had already been...
  15. Oldham Athletic Report

    I went along to Bournemouth v Oldham on Saturday to take a closer look at next week’s FA Cup opponents. The game finished 0-0 and was absolutely dire – if we are to go up this season, and if this match is indicative of the quality of the bottom half of L1, we should be fine in that...
  16. In all seriousness if Mohsni.....

    .....was fit enough to go straight back into the side on Friday (I know he isn't and won't but hypothetically speaking) I'd actually have still given us a slight glimmer of hope of gatecrashing the top 7. I think all the past 6 weeks has shown us is just how vital Bilel is to us (aswell as the...

    Is Evans worse than Flavs for crosses?

    ....i think so, Saturday confirms it. Watching the goals on t.v and every week at home can never see him coming off that goal line. Not a crusade to get Morris in but quite honestly think he is poor with kicking, shot stopping generally as a lot goes accross him and obviously the aerial stuff...

    The Stadium Design

    So with the work due to start imminently. Perhaps we can refresh our memories a little, of what our new home is meant to look like... The view from the planned Away end (NE corner) The view from the East Stand across to the Main Stand (West) Aerial view including retail annex...
