  1. Why I Own A Green And Gold Scarf...

    I’m not a Manchester United fan. When Freddy Eastwood dispatched a venomous 25-yard free kick past Tomasz Kuszczack in the Carling Cup, I was as ecstatic as every other Southend supporter crammed into Roots Hall. I do, however, own a green and gold scarf. Supporters are funny groups of people...

    Best Sequence of Number One Singles?

    I recently downloaded a great music collection containing every UK number one single from 1952-2007. Obviously, there's copious amounts of crap in there, but I was stunned to find some truly incredible sequences of classic singles that hit the top spot in succession. These were my two favourite...
  4. Do we get a bonus depending on league position?

    Does anyone know if the fooball league pays a bonus depending on what position the club finishes in , and if they do what the amounts might be. If there are payments this would be relevant to potential offers for Barney etc
  5. 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...
  6. Companies Act 2006-Directors Responsibilities

    As more and more information seeps out about the Blues parlous financial condition, the thought had crossed my mind that some consideration should be given to the role of the SUFC Board in matters reaching the state they have. Until very recently, I was Chairman of a small transport company in...

    Right, me and the beloved was discussing her unusual attraction for effeminate men............Before you all start, I do not fall under this catergory as I eminate copius amounts of testosterone on an hourly basis. She however has this attraction for effeminate, if not totally gay men and when I...

    How whould you kill yourself????

    What with some recent threads on here, I feel this needs to be covered to be in keeping with the general mood!!! I would put on the some Bowie, drink copious amounts of Dalwhinnie eat a tub of pills and hope that I did not throw up during the night. How would you do it, so to speak???

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    Any truth in this WW2 story?

    Judging by how far behind eveyone else I seem to be in getting jokes and stuff sent to me, I don't know if any of you have seen this story. It seems very far fetched to me, just wondered if anyone knows if there's any truth in it or is this a hangover from last April Fools' Day or something? ;)...
  12. Goldfish!

    Anybody out there on the Zone have any goldfish? I've had mine for around 10 months now and yesterday gave the whole tank a good old clean out and I couldnt believe the amount of crap that was in the gravel. Gave the tank abit of a refurbishment and after having a think, I'm interested in...

    Solving this recession/economic slowdown malarky

    Now, I reckon I'd make a great Prime Minister, I'd model myself on Hugh Grant in Love Actually, mainly cos I'd belt Martine McCutchen, but anyway. So, solving this gloomy problem. Build prisons. 5 or 6 massive ones. Would take loads of people to build the things, then would create a load of...

    BBC (& Sky) Gaza DEC Appeal Veto

    My view is that there is a very real humanitarian crisis going on in Gaza and that urgent medicine, food and shelter is great need. I've been reading CAFOD's blog from Palestine which has been a real eye opener and very personal account of exactly what has been going on. I know there must be...

    Media overreaction - stories that were... well... rubbish

    I've been running my ever cynical eye over the goings on in our national media of late, and got into a heated debate with a few work folk the other evening regarding some of the big issues in the spotlight right now. A few seemed to have an immense amount of hatred for city bankers, Social...

    One to watch.

    Whilst a tad bored the other day I had a browse through the movies available on BT Vision and came across Cashback. A Brit flik I hadn't previously heard of but thought I'd give a go, and I'm so glad I did. It's funny as hell in parts, exceptionally well acted, has a unique storyline and copious...
