  1. Wenger

    Allegedly reported to be stepping down in the summer. I'm amazed he's not been sacked years ago, the perrenial bridesmaids in the Prem.
  2. Election day 2016

    my constituency has a byelection today Harry Harpham (Labour MP) died a few months ago and his wife is running as the labour candidate. I think his wife is a decent person and could be a good MP (in some ways stronger than Harpham). It'll be quite an interesting temperature check in a very...

    My SUFC related Dreams

    I don't know what's going on with my brain at the moment, I always seem to dream but can rarely remember them, but recently have had a couple of very vivid SUFC dreams which I remember very well. A couple of days ago....... Southend had reached a final due to be played at Wembley against Port...

    Memory Lane Just out of interest, who here went to the earlist match...

    ...and what can you remember of it? My first was home to QPR in 1965. I was 9 and was amazed it was in colour! It was a Friday night as I recall. Who here went earlier than that?

    Charlton v M'boro and the ex-Blues contingent

    We went to Charlton v Middlesbrough on Saturday and was amazed at the number of Blues on show. Middlesbrough had ex loanee George Friend playing at left back, he is a classy full back as he was on his brief stint here. Charlton was like a mini Southend's finest XI They had Dorian Dervitte...
  7. Phil and his dodgy win ratio

    His overall record as manager is under 30% and his time at this club is 11%!,1 win from 8 does not forebode well and I honestly believe next season if the club reach the dizzy heights of mid table it would be a credible achievement yet I suspect we could easily be in trouble at the wrong end of...

    Wembley - Just a day out?

    Is the thought of Wembley considered just a day out, or more important to you than that? For me its the one sporting dream that remains in my catalogue. I have done FA cup Finals, Ive been to the Wrold Cup, attended many England games at the new and old stadium, Ive seen Essex in Lords finals...

    Question Who is better, Cresswell or Barrett?

    With the upcoming clash of the Thames Estuary Derby, it occurs to me that it will be a fine opportunity to compare the on bald goal scoring centre back with an ex bald goal scoring centre back. Who would you rather have? To nail my colours to the mast, I truly believe that Cresswell is a...
  10. Payday and doorstep lenders

    Just seen Jo Swinson MP act as the coalition apologist for payday lenders. A truly sorry episode. Anyone considering taking a payday loan (eg wonga, quickquid etc) or doorstop loan (eg provident, pinewood, greenwood etc) should think extremely carefully before doing so. If you are in the sort...
  11. Voting for Police Commissioner

    Now I recieved my polling card this morning and 1) I have no idea who's running. Yes I could look it up but I've not even had a flyer through my door from any candidate. 2) Is it really going to make any difference? Laws are made in Westminster, so the MK elected police commisioner can't...

    Breaking News Shrimperzone and Southend's number one gets new deal.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, More good news from the club is that Shriperzone and Southend's number one Lucky Luca has been awarded not one but two year deal with the club. Firstly I dont think we as mere mortals can realise the dedication that the young lads put in. They literally have to eat, sleep...

    How did you meet your loved one?

    I am always amazed about how some people meet there partners. I was out with the lads today and there wives and kids etc and almost all our friends met there partners via work or friends. Personally I met my Mrs on the train. I had been out drinking around London Bridge and it was about 11...
  16. Adebayo Akinfenwa

    I was amazed when I walked into Roots Hall today to see the state of Adebayo Akinfenwa. I simply could not believe the size of the guy! He was huge and when I say huge, I don't mean muscle, I mean fat. How can this guy play football? I'm not joking when I say that the first thought that went...

    Left Backs - Who if any would you keep?

    We seem to now have three players that can pass themselves off as left backs (four with Barker but clearly he is going to be staying thank god). I am amazed by the amount of people that seem to want Prosser to get a new deal. For me he is woeful. His only asset is his height. I think he is one...

    "The liquid bomb plot."

    I would say over half my tv viewing in the course of a week (which is not much in fairness) must be on the documentry channel. Last night I watched a brilliant doc on the Islamic Terrorists that planned to blow up 9 planes between Britain and American in 2006. The basics were that the UK...
