    Our full backs.

    Morning All, Not meaning to be a merchant of doom after what I thought was a pretty decent performance last night from the lads but I am really not impressed by either of our full backs at the moment. Gilbert I think is pretty decent in the air but that is about the only positive I can draw. I...
  2. It's great being a Southend fan, isn't it...

    Haven't been on here since the end of last season and I can't believe how much has happened in 3 months! New team, new manager, new forum (love it btw). I'm not going to bother dragging up everything that happened over the last 3 months, but my view on things is as follows: 1. Tilson was in...

    Eastbourne Views

    Got my first pre-season for a few years under my belt today. Eastbourne is only 45 mins or so from home so I made the trip along with my daughter. My first thoughts were I was amazed by big the squad were in terms of height. There are some decent sized players out there which I am guessing must...

    best of sickipedia part 2

    I was watching a porno and this girl managed to gag on the bloke's **** for up to five minutes at a time. Amazed by such a performance, I tried this with my wife and ended up killing her. Turns out that I just have a slow internet connection.

    Dating Someone Famous

    Anyway, now all the fun of having a huge election has died down, we can get back to more normal rubbish to while away the time with. Now, last week, the more eagle-eyed of you won't have bothered noticing, I didn't log in for around 5 days or so. What I was doing, which has amazed me as much...
  7. One for Rusty - You Know You Are A Taliban If:

    1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to beer. 2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and a $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes. 3. You have more wives than teeth. 4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon "unclean." 5. You think vests...
  8. Martin just go now please!!!

    What the hell has this man done to our club, im amazed that such a talented manager such as Tilly is still here. We are now January 26th and no sign of any new players, only a player Soton offloaded as part of the Barney deal and a player who would rather play for league 1 reserves than here...
  9. Charlton manager accuses Southend Fans of poor memories on BBC website

    Are you SURE!?! Charlton Athletic manager Phil Parkinson has hit out at the abuse hurled at skipper Nicky Bailey by supporters of his former club Southend. The 25-year-old midfielder was subjected to abuse during Saturday's 1-0 win at The Valley. "I was amazed because I thought he would get...
  10. Hands Up Who Paid for That...

    I'll admit it. I paid the full £14 to watch 76 seconds of boxing last night. I was fooled by a Jewish New Yorker who talked a good game, but failed to mark his words with any kind of action. After taking two attempts and a stripping to make the 10 stone weight limit, Dmitriy Salita informed a...

    York Road market

    I spent a couple of hours strolling around Southend on Saturday with my son and was amazed to see York Road market has shut down. Can anyone tell me when this happened?

    Working For a ***** Company

    As some of you will know, I work for a Rescue & Recovery Company which is not your average 9-5 sort of job. Most though not all who do this job expect long hours, all weather conditions and sometimes, the very real risk of serious injury or even death. It's the nature of the job (considered in...
  13. Breaking News Another blow!!!

    Following yesterdays woeful performance we are dealt another blow. Johnny Herd has done his hamstring and will not be back until after xmas. Real shame as he has shown great potential in recent weeks. If we continue like yesterday it will be a fight for survival unless we make some new...
  14. You've got to hand it to him

    I've never met the man, so haven't seen his skills first hand, but you've got to hand it to him. Ron Martin must have incredibly slick PR skills. He seems to be like teflon. Whenever there is something bad to face, either someone else is put forward to take the flak or he somehow wins people...

    Question Is paying in bags of coppers pikey?

    My last weeks in this god forsaken bank that I work for are really dragging. I am basically not allowed to see customers in case I try and poach them yet the still expect the normal hours of work. Every other financial insitute would give you gardening leave but not my money grabbing lot...

    South Africa squads announced

    No place for Ravi Bopara in either squad I guess I am not too surprised that Ravi has been left out of the Test Squad, but a bit surprised he didn't make the one day side. I'd also suggest this is the end of the road for Steve Harmison, with Plunkett coming back. With my Essex bias I am still...

    Question Your favourite of the so called "Big four"

    Watching the premiership on the opening day of the season made me realise how much I cant stand football at the top level. So many plastic fans and the whole beauty of football seems lost to me. Spent Sunday on the beach with the Mrs and it amazed me how the big four have such a monopoly on the...

    Question Report and Financial Statements - Directors

    Have just had the 2008 financials through in the post, and a question comes to mind. Ron and/or GK are always the figure heads that we praise or slag off depending upon your point of view, but can anyone tell me what the other directors actually do that brings value to the Club - it is not a...

    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...
