  1. Flower Ranger

    Absolutely Cr*p again today. Every centre back dominates the guy. For a tall guy he is woefully weak. Offered nothing. Hope we are looking for alternatives in the transfer window.

    The £3 lunch deal.

    I have the choice between Sainsburys and Tesco and have opted for the latter because they have a better selection and crucially have Pickled Onion Monster Munch in the deal. Can any experts out there provide any interesting alternatives?

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    Question for any KODI users on here

    I haven't been on KODI for a while but tonight I fired it up and discovered that the Genesis Add-on is no longer supported. I've had a quick nose at possible alternatives and SALTS or Velocity have been highlighted as good replacements. Has anyone tried either of these two yet? and if you have...

    Ditching Sky

    I have realised that I do most of my viewing online these days so I am looking at alternatives to Sky. Has anyone got any suggestions they are happy with? I am not bothered about sports or movies.
  6. Strikers - perspective needed

    I loved BBBC as much as the next man and will always remember him fondly.... And that's where it ends. He was/is a useful league two player. The fact that he was our top scorer said more about our lack of alternatives rather than his ability. Cambridge offered him a better deal and he went for...

    Car Insurance - total rip off

    Just got my insurance renewal on our people carrier... Endsleigh have increased our premium by 43% !! Yes, 43 PERCENT - due to a claim made last year, when my wife was victim to a hit and run after another car rammed our car. Subsequently we paid the £300 excess as the po-lice were unable to...

    Best XI of players with more than one spell

    OK, we've had a few players who have gone off and returned and played for a club or 2 in the interim - I've made a stab at an xi. Alternatives welcome! 1. Mervyn Cawston 2. John White 3. Paul Roberts 4. Paul Clark 5. Andy Edwards 6. Spencer Prior 7. Lee Sawyer 8. Alan McCormack 9. Freddy...
  9. Question Anthony Straker

    Can someone please tell me what I am missing concerning the abilities of Mr Straker. He may be a nice chappie but I am only interested in his footballing skills. I read Mr Brown rates him and is impressed with his performances. However since the first time of seeing Anthony Straker on a football...

    Alternatives to Sky?

    Morning All, Having yet another nightmare with Sky. Does anyone have an alternative to Sky's package they can recommend. We have tv, land line and internet via them but the service has been a joke. Cheers DtS

    Warning for those driving to the match today via Sadlers Farm junction.....

    For the second weekend in succession, work is going on at Sadlers itself and the junction is operating as a traditional (left hand turn only) roundabout. It's causing huge congestion in the area so if you've not left already and usually go that way, maybe you might want to think about...

    Question UK equivalent of Mint.com

    Been chatting to an American friend of mine who was telling me how great Mint.com is and how it really helps with his budgeting/spending and consequently saving. A bit of digging showed me that they don't have a UK equivalent but that two alternatives are: http://www.moneydashboard.com/...
  13. Do we just have to accept we're stuck with Ron Martin now?

    I've posted something about this on another thread, but I fear it may get lost so think it needs a thread of its own. I'm concerned that suddenly yet another PR masterstroke - the likes of which we've seen many times before - has occurred and some people think again that everything's rosy and...

    Is Tilson really as good as we think?

    I do apologise if I have not got my facts right , and I myself am a big fan of Steve Tilson all for the same reasons as you. But I have come to think that his miraculous double-promotion was down to the sheer quality of the players we had on the pitch. I mean dont get me wrong it still is...
  15. Paterson and Spencer

    I appreciate the position we are in and if people may have mentioned this already my apologies. Next couple of matches I think we've pretty much written off on our current form. I think looking to our future we should give Spencer and Patterson a couple of starts together. They've both had...

    Hard to like SUFC at the moment

    Anyone else feeling little but apathy for SUFC at the moment? I've been a supporter since '86 and been all over the place and had season tickets etc. But this season and what is happening is just depressing. The squad is being stripped bare and replaced by cheap alternatives, loans and in most...
  17. Question If you had to choose....

    ...between success for Southend with Ron Martin or failure without him, what would you choose? Does your dislike for Ron Martin exceed your love for Southend? Would financial ruin for SUFC be a small price to pay to see RM bankrupt? (I am well aware these aren't the only alternatives but I am...

    Alternative national anthems at football matches

    Accepting as everyone does that "500 miles" by the Proclaimers is now the unofficial national anthem of Scotland (Ba-Duuuuub-Daaaaahhh....), I think FIFA should bite the bullet and play this before Scotland's international matches. I'd like to compile for Mr Blatter a list of alternatives for...
