  1. Social media gossip..

    Mr Ranger seems to have been breathalysed ... maybe it's an old joke or something? It seems to have taken 4 officers to do this ... instagram And Mr Cox seems to be selecting the team for Saturday when he congratulates MAF and asks for "more of the same on Saturday" Also see Mr Maclaughlin...

    Row breaks out over 5 legged dog

    No disrespect intended but this story in the Echo amused me. Probably no laughing matter for the family but it reminded me of Uncle Alberts funeral in Only Fools and Horses. http://m.echo-news.co.uk/news/14251389.Row_breaks_out_over__five_legged_dog__funeral_flowers/?ref=mr&lp=2

    Just launched a new spoof NSA website/twitter

    Hi all, Just a brief one from me. Myself and a friend of mine are a bit geeky, we came up with the idea of a website that simply asked the question 'Are the NSA watching me?' and answered with an obvious 'yes'. Most people won't understand or find it funny, but for those easily amused it's...

    Question what is it ?

    Has anyone noticed during the friendly matches what the contraption is just to the left of our dugout? It looks almost like an i-pad strapped onto a yellow stand ... i've never noticed this before ( but i am a west stand seaso with bad eyesight ) Does anyone know if this is one of Phil Browns...
  5. WG Grace would not be amused!

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/jan/14/england-cricketer-sarah-taylor-mens-match Thin end of the PC wedge or a step forward? Why not those Englishmen not good enough for the first team to play in England's Women's team? Discuss!

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...

    Funny Football Vids

    I know there are hundreds out there but a couple I have watched this morning have amused me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8F1lwJEKFE&playnext=1&list=PLE612620C2BFFC991

    Auntie can't get mouth around clock

    Not a lot to be amused about of late - but I rather like this BBC story about a talkative Johnson: Auntie can't get mouth around clock

    Doesn't go out until tomorrow, but I thought I'd let you lot have an early peak.... As usual feel free to agree/disagree, or go nothing at all :)

    Question Wot are you looking forward to this Summer?

    For me, a few obvious things, others a bit more unique. In no particular order: 1. The World Cup, watching every key game (and most of the others) where poss with a beer in hand. Might be a bit challenging at times, for the USA game I am helping out at junior school camp at a sloping field...

    Wenger's Vengeance

    Try and imagine, if you will, Arsene Wenger throwing a tantrum. It doesn't really fit in with his professorial demeanour, does it? I can imagine him taking me to one side, putting a hand on my shoulder and telling me that he wasn't angry with me, that he was just disappointed. I can imagine that...
  13. On a lighter note....

    Anyone wishing to give Ron Martin any stick, get it out of your system here first: http://www.punchinthefacebook.com/punch/southend-united-chairman/ron-martin Then you can come to the game all refreshed and support the boys! :) (Well it kept me amused for 5 mins...)

    White Hart Lane

    I always enjoy a trip to White Hart Lane. Sure, it's in the middle of the north-east London badlands, a destination made even more remote by London Transport's fascination with shutting down the tube on match day, but there are consolations. For starters, there's the stadium itself, a hulking...

    A Recovery Nightmare

    It all started normally. Flat battery in South Woodham Ferrers, clutch gone on an VW Camper in Westcliff another flat battery at Southend Hospital. All run of the mill stuff. Then I got a call for an Ford Scorpio in Pitsea with a wheel bearing gone and needing recovery to Great Yarmouth. That'll...

    Super-Outsiders? Not A Chance.

    Villarreal 1-1 Arsenal Senna, 10 Adebayor, 66 If it is true that whatever fails to kill you makes you stronger, then soon Arsenal will be invincible. After the painful grind of a season ruined by injuries and internal dispute, the Gunners are growing as a team, and as men. To come back from...

    Ireland declares war on France

    The French President is sitting in his office when his telephone rings. "Hallo, Mr. Sarkozy!" a heavily accented voice says. "This is Paddy down at the Hogshead Harp Pub in County Clare, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you Frenchies!" "Well, Paddy,"...

    Wilkins Worried By Wobbles

    After a hard night at Roots Hall, Luis Felipe Scolari was in no mood to face the media. Perhaps he was locked in the dressing room with a blackboard, some chalk and a squad still struggling to understand the concept of zonal marking. Whatever the reason, it was Ray Wilkins who squeezed into the...
