  1. Kane Ferdinand

    He doesn't seem to be getting a lot of game time at Peterborough. How about getting him back from Posh for a month PS to help us through our injury crisis - and at the same time help him get fit? He should be able to slip straight back into the team - can play a number of positions etc. If they...
  2. Sturrock & Eastwood

    Fully believe now that Freddy wasn't a Sturrock signing. How on earth can he leave a player like Freddy on the bench today, it beggars belief and it annoys me that we are seemingly going to use such a talented and creative player so sparingly whilst bringing on untried kids like Clarke-Harris...

  5. Excellent work

    Scolari's Not To Blame

    Luis Felipe Scolari may have paid the price for Chelsea's bleak midwinter, but who was really to blame for the club's decline in form? The Brazilian boss may have made mistakes in his short reign at Stamford Bridge, but he was never given the tools he needed to rebuild an ageing squad. It was...

    London Tube

    A list of actual announcements that London Tube train drivers have made to their passengers... 1) "Ladies and Gentlemen, I do apologize for the delay to your service. I know you're all dying to get home, unless, of course, you happen to be married to my ex-wife, in which case you'll want to...

    BW Hartlepool Highlights

    On the match thread I got my first laugh of the evening when the commentator on BW stated that we needed at least four points from Northampton and MKD's. My second, rather belated, (incredulous) laugh, came from watching us concede our first goal on Friday night. To lose possession in your...

    Capital Punishment - Think again.......

    I know the whole should we, should'nt we, debate has been done to death on here before but if anything should make you change your mind it's this. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7708398.stm Eight broken ribs and a broken back, with another area of bleeding around the spine at neck level. •...
  10. the MET police!!

    Has the world gone completely mad?

    Maher/Gower boos!

    I caught the train up from a a social evening in london tonight to watch the game against Huddersfield.... I wish I had not bothered, because I am ashamed to be a Southend Unitred supporter! Why you ask, simple. To all those so called supporters in the west stand who boood Kevin maher and Mark...
  13. Banksy


    Look, Don't blame the guys up front. Personally I think the midfield is where we are not good enough. Maher needs support. Gutteridge has not cut the mustard at this level and Hunt is more of a defensive midfielder come sweeper. We need Dennis Wise/ Paul Ince types in the middle but...

  15. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

    Trains from London to Cardiff

    Folks, This is a word of warning for those of you who have booked train tickets on-line. Being a bit of a sceptic when it comes to train on-line booking systems, I phoned First Great Western (08457 000 125) in order to book my train ticket to Cardiff. W4 Shrimper had already booked his train...

    Tonght's Echo

    Just had my Echo delivered and there must be a mistake because on the front it states "Southend Evening Echo" yet the sports' pages are full of West Ham's defeat. I must have been sent the Redridge Echo in error. The 'paper beggars belief - imagine how much coverage they...
