  1. Holdall/barrel bags

    Anyone seen any good ones knocking around for under a ton? Not too fussed, canvas or leather, just smart and large enough for a couple of nights away with work/weekend.

    Memories, memories!

    I have been away on my travels for some years (on & off) but will always be Southend United. Is so fantastic to see the lads sitting top of the league and of course the possibility of Anfield brings back memories of '79. That is just one great memory of so many as well as Watford in the previous...

    Russian Roulette

    I've been thinking for quite some time about posting this and realise from the off that it may be dangerous for my health. But with [some] good cheer flying around the place I figure this is as good a time as any to get my head torn off. I'd also like to say that I don't pretend to be any sort...

    Down Down Deeper and Down

    Ok we are down..is this a new beginning or a total mismanagement of our football club..IMO we have been sent down the river for a pocket full of gold. I cannot remember when in my 40 odd years of supporting SUFC when I have felt so low....we have such a great fan base as this site shows..and we...

    Jose - Up Close and Personal

    Jose Mourinho smoulders. I wanted to get through this feature without writing anything that might worry my new wife, but there you go, I’ve blown it in the first line. But he really does. He smoulders. He walks into the sweaty, over-crowded press room and sits there in front of the lights...
  8. Paterson interview from SSN

    Interesting article. Southend supporters have certainly been put through the wringer this season, with the very existence of their club hanging in the balance at one stage. It appeared such issues had been laid to rest once a £2.1million tax bill was settled with HM Revenues and...

    Kris Akabusi Stories

    How do you like my bit of spare time writing ....i wish !! Akabusi scaled the walls of the £756,000 Sussex mansion with all the stealth of a gekko on a Mallorcan shower wall. As luck would have it the window was open. He dropped in and slipped out of his dungerees and let the cool air caress...
  10. Fabulous Fabiano Foils Fat Faker

    National hero, cheating midget, the worlds greatest, bloated drug addict, national coach, and now, the man responsible for almost failing to qualify Argentina for next years World Cup. No, this isn't the Newcastle team sheet for next weekend, this is the rap sheet for Diego Maradona. Going into...

    Ed Upson

    Scraping the barrel of the term 'ex' here, but 'ex-trialist' Ed Upson bagged a couple of goals in Ipswich's 8-0 friendly win. I am still a bit mystified why we didnt pick him up at the arse end of last season :(

    Memory Lane Special Report on SUFC's previous homes

    Nice piece from the Echo's site today (I know there's no paper today), could have gone in the other forum I guess, but thought it kind of went alongside the Hall of Fame stuff we've been doing. Sing the Blues for stadiums past 12:10am Saturday 30th May 2009 Comments (0) Have your say » By...

    Striker Crisis For Capello

    England 4-0 Slovakia Heskey, 7 Rooney, 70, 90+2 Lampard, 82 Forget about the result. A 4-0 victory over a substandard Slovakia might look nice on the scoreboard, but it has no place in the bigger picture. Fabio Capello will be far more concerned by a dramatic injury crisis in his frontline...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Four

    Chapter Four - We Fade To Grays "Old Blue Lady," grinned Shackleford as she approached the table, holding Ricey carefully by the earlobe. "You came." Old Blue Lady lowered her squirming guest gently onto a barstool and stepped away, leaving him clutching his ear in annoyance and glaring up at...

    Funny email

    Yes, it's that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least evolved among us. Here is the glorious winner: 1. When his 38-calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach , California , would-be robber James Elliot did...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-4 Chelsea

    Scolari Safe... For Now Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be in the mood to be pleasant to any of his players after a week of backbiting and under-achievement, but if he has any sense, he'll give Petr Cech a very firm pat on the back. The word 'crisis' may be overused in football, but had it not been...

    Workers Compensation

    I so hope this is true!! This is a bricklayer's accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the Australian equivalent of the Workers' Compensation Board... Dear Sir, I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I...

  19. MK's Indie Disco on a Friday Morning

    Today we have a cracking bit of Riot Grrrlll angst from Daisy Chainsaw.... Katie Jane Gartside is as cute as a barrel full of kittens, but she'd spit you up and eat you out given half the chance :) I'm sure some of us can identify with the sentiment: "Love Your Money" by Daisy Chainsaw...
