backfired

    Theresa May - Dead woman walking?

    The old adage of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer appears to have finally backfired for Theresa May where Boris Johnson is concerned. I don't pay anywhere near as much attention to politics as I used to, but it does look as if Theresa has lost a lot of confidence and respect...
  2. Deegan leaves by mutual consent!

    Thought this deserved it's own thread, seeing as it's not a release as such... 731155490672152578 "I deserve to be starting every game... Otherwise I'll just leave" "You're not good enough... with regret... Gary, you're fired!" "Ah, that might have backfired somewhat..."
  3. Gamblers anonymous

    I put a huge bet on us to win the league this year (each way will also be nice). However when I did my normal divisional bet, for some reason I did this: Man city West Ham (sorry) Sheffield United All looking good... But then for some reason Plymouth They won 0-4 away on Saturday so could...
  4. Does the Marketing leave a lot to be desired ?

    Similay to the Tara has backfired article. I believe the marketing area of the Club is not as good as it was when Brian Wheeler was at the helm. Admittedly things were easier then as we achieved back to back promotions. For me things could still improve in this capacity but as someone...

    Has Tara's Season ticket gamble backfired

    I for one thought the hike in season ticket prices was a big mistake after all the negatives of the last couple of seasons.Without the definate start of Fossetts before the season ,thought it was imperitive to try and retain as many of the core supporters until things on and off the pitch...
  6. Mohsni on "last chance"

    Just listened to PS interview from last night... * Mohsni's 'whole demeanour' is not right. * Has been internally disciplined financially and told to 'get help' after the Orient game. * Ramadan having a big affect on him (so leave him out completely). * Decision to play him 'backfired', though...
  7. The problem with football...

    Hi all...these days I usually respond to threads something around 7-pages in which takes about 2 seconds thought and isn't very serious, just the usual tired crap of taking the **** out of RM, (which lets face it isn't hard, I mean every time he opens his mouth to the press it's bloody hilarous...

    I Love Southend And support the CLUB fully...

    hopefully this will be short but i have just had enough of the moaners on here and 606 p.s these are just my views as a loyal blue, business man & a man who knows his football inside out. What happened last season happened was Ron to blame? In my eyes the guy put money into the club trying to...

    General Election 2010: Forget Brown, Is It Time For Cameron To Go?

    Interesting reading in the early edition of the Daily Telegraph. Latest MORI poll shows the following standings: Conservative 37% Labour 32% Liberal Democrat 19% Others 12% That would certainly mean a hung parliament. The Conservatives had a seemingly uncatchable lead of between 15-18%, just...
  10. Latest Rumours Double murder at Boots and Laces

    Barrett's Banter suggest that JFC had a prank up his sleeve for Macca. http://www.echo-news.co.uk/sport/theblues/4748601.Barrett_s_Banter__Vote_Barney_/ However apparently JFC's prank on Macca has backfired, with Macca getting two shots on target and 'going medieval' on Laurent and JFC. From...

    One to Start the Weekend (week 23)

    This weeks one to start the weekend is the 1992 number 2 CLASSIC!... SL2 - On a Ragga Tip.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwD-qNgJVQk Usually i have all the claptrap before the track, but The Bloke in The Pram Shop just told me an excellent story about this track, which mentions the track and...
  12. FRIENDLIES general sale

    the friendlies have both gone on general sale now so this means whoever i going. we'll prob be surrounded by west ham fans, i think the pricing of the tickets have backfired a bit for the centenery game, maybe they should have made them cheaper so that more loyal fans go, ive got a feeling they...
  13. Complaints to City Council

    Complaints to City Council. 1. My bush is really overgrown round the front and my back passage has fungus growing in it. 2. He's got this huge tool that vibrates the whole house and I just can't take it anymore. 3. It's the dogs mess that I find hard to swallow. 4. I want some repairs done to...

    Echo tonight

    Nicolau feels he has a point to prove as he says he wanted to stay at Southend and "ended up being treated quite badly by them". He adds, "I loved it there and it's a shame things were not handled a little better when it came to discussing a new contract". Hmmm...
  15. Freddy appeal dismissed

    According to the FA website Freddy's appeal has been dismissed he is therefore banned for 3 games for violent conduct. However, an extra game has been added for a "frivolous" appeal, so that's backfired a touch.

    Premisership dogfight

    I know the Prem isn't everyones favourite league on here but despite the title race being a boring 1 horse again, the relegation dogfight is fascinating this season with the 4 bottom clubs all in with a shout of survival on the final day. Looking at the last days fixtures, Southampton have...
