    How many blues apperances have you made.

    I am hoping this wont turn into one of those tedious "I am more of a fan than you" type posts but was just wondering how many Blues games you have done. I cant be sure but I reckon I am on close too 400 games working on the basis that I have done on average of 20 games a season ove the past 20...

    Kevin Maher

    Last night was Kev's 416th appearance in a Southend shirt. This season he's passed the legendary Ronnie Poutney in the all time list and three more appearances will see him equal Tony Bentley in 3rd place. Quite an achievement and at only 30 he could very well catch up both Sandy Anderson in...

    Is KP's injury a blessing in disguise?

    England seem to have been playing cricket non-stop more or less for a year. Pakistan and India are gruelling tours, but they were followed up with series immediately against Sri Lanka and Pakistan at home. As soon as the tests end they play ODIs. No sooner than the season ended then they were...

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...

    SUFC Cenetenary Roll of Honour

    Well, the Centenary Roll of Honour vote continues - in an extremely hard fought contest for the 1956-66 berth in the Roll of Honour, Sandy Anderson pipped Roy Hollis and Sammy McCrory to the post with 36% of the vote. Next up, it's 1966-76, which I suspect will be even more hard-fought...
  10. Hall of Fame.....vote on O/S!

    Tour to Pakistan

    Heard David Graveney on the radio this morning talking about the selection meeting for the pre-Christmas tour to Pakistan. The selection panel will meet in 10 days time, and he indicated that fitness permitting, all 12 players involved in the Ashes Tests will be selected for the tour, as they...

    Essex v Lancashire

    Away from the excitement of the Ashes, one G Flower has continued his sterling work for the county: G Flower C&B Anderson 0 (1) 14/2, Jefferson also out.
  13. The Fifth Test

    for the next test to start. Win, lose or draw we can be very proud of the team this year, if we don't win we know that it's only because of one day of rain in the third test! Simon Jones is out, never been too sure about Anderson so I reckon Collingwood is the best bet to replace...

    Just saw this on the BBC.... http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1....628.stm Basically Idajh Anderson has been released (worth a look?) and they have signed their youth-keeper on a non-contract basis as cover - will they recall Clarke if need be then?
