    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2- 0 Brighton U23s

    I suspect this will be quite a short thread. It was really a game of men against boys. Brighton were a skilful team and passed and moved very quickly but their end product was very poor, Teddy had very little to do, but what he did have, he did well. John White proved again that he is Mr...

    Another slight dampener on the day

    I fully appreciate the excitement of the mighty shrimpers scoring and I used to rush down the front of the stand as a kid (and sometimes still do :thumbsup:), but why did a couple of lads run onto the pitch yesterday and risk banning orders ? Surely, just stay behind the barrier and let the...

    Half Time Challenge (when a car was won)

    For purposes of a missive I am putting together on Roots Hall memories, can anyone tell me please what game it was (and when) that someone first won a car with the half time challenge (where i think the task was to put three balls over a barrier in the goal and in to the net from various...

    W block reminder....

    Due to the club being picky you now have to have an actual ticket for the W block on a match day. Serves no real purpose and almost caused a riot last weekend when people tried to walk in, especially as people that had never sat in there before didn't realise what was happening and had young...

    Anyone seen my blow up doll? Left her sitting of the barrier behind the goal but she was In a real state!!

    Captains Blog Part 2

    EAST ON.... I know this is supposed to be a light-hearted column so I’ll get Saturday’s defeat against Morecombe out of the way first. What can I say, we’re all gutted with the result and the way we lost the three goals in a game where we once again had most of the play. When we equalised at...

    Things that annoy you on trains

    Thinking about what I wrote in that Toff MP's thing on here I thought I'd start a catalogue of all the things people hate on the trains. I'll kick off with "day trippers" on commuter trains. NO, you're not special, NO, you don't have more right to the seat and getting on the train first just...

    "Parse Error," said my laptop with a grumply bleep. "Cricketbook.abw, not well formed. Invalid token at line 236." I blinked in confusion. "Abiword cannot open Cricketbook.abw," it continued apace. "This is not a valid document." 'Well, that's strange,' I thought to myself. It was a valid...
