  1. The Eternal Optimist

    All quiet on the Southend front?

    Every Window we are kept on tenterhooks awaiting the marquee signing that never comes :sad: I am rather hoping Ray Parlour’s love child rocks up but I do fear he’ll laugh and taunt us. I guess we will be teased up until the closing bell tolls.

    Question Travel to Malaysia

    A question for those who are much more seasoned travellers than I am, to help my daughter out. She's travelling out to Malaysia next month with her father for a visit, which includes a wedding (her dad's mum is Malaysian so there's a lot of family out there). It's difficult for her to take...

    Hey everybody!

    Hello I have been a quiet member of the forum for a few months now, and suddenly realised I have never posted anything, so no better place than this thread to start! I was born in Southend to a familys-worth of SUFC fans (Mum, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Grandparents etc) and have been an avid...
  4. Its Only A Game

    Bit of legal advice on wills needed

    Just a quickie if there are any legal bods out there. My Dad (in his late 70's) has just found out that his brother and his wife died a couple of months ago down in Devon. For some reason none of my dads family were advised, even though his brother was in hospital for 3 weeks before passing...

    My Aunt's Boyfriend

    I thought I'd tell you all a story. My uncle (my mum's brother) died in 2001. He had a heart transplant in around 1989-1990 and his new heart was finally rejected about 12 years on. He had got to a point where he was on the strongest anti-rejection drugs possible, so there was nothing more the...

    Anyone good at writing Business Proposals *cough-begging letter-cough*??

    I know the likelyhood of anyof these taking over is very remote, but....

    See Ya !

    Orlando here we come. Despite saying 18 months ago that was the holiday of a lifetime here we are Disney, Universal, Seaworld etc etc bound. Up at 4.30am. Taxi at 5.30. Flight leaves at 9.40. This time around my parents are coming for the first holiday with the kids (12 and 14) and there are...
  9. Would you have her courage?

    On Mr B's "Pictures of Birds" thread, Boris posted up a picture of a lady called Sarah Jane Howe. It was a bit different from the others on the thread because, as Boris pointed out, she seemed to have no nipples. Below is her story - and as asked in the thread title, would you have her courage?

    Even I Can't Back The Gunners

    As anyone who recalls my contributions to 'The Bet Shop Boys' will know, I'm not much of a gambler. Instead of always betting on the likeliest outcome, I have a reckless and self-destructive habit of only making predictions that might make me seem really clever. Sometimes, like the time I backed...

    Pete Townsend in Southend last night....

    Gutted! Absolutely bloody gutted! It being the daughter's birthday we arranged to go out for a meal last night, despite it being my parents' Lions' Club annual dinner at the Arlington Rooms. Some of you will know I've mentioned the tenuous family connection before, but here's the proof - my...

    Chelsea, the Irish, and Richie Foran, Richie Richie Foran

    Just back in the land of leprechauns a couple of hours after a great trip. Travelled over in Billy no mates style again for my 5th match of the season, and it was a teeny tiny bit better than the Huddersfield one last time :D Started off Saturday morning leaving Limerick at 4:30 am, for a...
  13. Family stand - swearing

    Any chance the swearing can be stopped in the family stand? It's frankly embarrassing to hear the individuals do it and also the marshals to simply ignore it. If you want to swear and taunt the opposition then sit in near the North stand. Idiots.

    I'm fed up

    I'm fed up today, not with the team, but with the people who keep saying that if we keep playing like this they want their season ticket back. We won our first game of the season against supposed promotion contenders and had one albeit very poor game against a poor team due mainly to the Bailey...

    Hottest Burger In The World (some rude words)

    This is in Brisbane, shall I have a go when I get there in a months time and report back? Yeah, like f*** I will! was digging around the zGeek forums the other day when I stumbled across one of the funniest post-hot-food-eating articles I've ever read. "Cranky" had heard about the "Off the...

    It's good to talk

    I noticed tonight on Irish tv, there were at least 3 instances of adverts encouraging people to talk more if they have problems that are affecting their daily lives. Always hearing people harping on about their physical health, and how they need to do more running or gym work is all well and...

    Grégory Coupet

    Look, the last thing I ever dreamt of doing, was to come on here with any kind of transfer rumour that originated from south-west France. However, whilst I was at the market this morning I was signalled out by Flavlo Balotti, a Corsican neighbour of mine. Having seen the Southend United...

    The biggest month in the clubs history!!

    Well here we are. We have waited with baited breath for the plans to arrive and marvelled at there design. We given up time and had days off in some cases to lobby at the civic centre and rochford council offices . We have in effect been pushed and tested at every stage, but yet we should all...

    London, UK (Reuters) - A seven year old boy was at the centre of a London courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with...
