    why didnt we sign Billy Kee ?

    Billy Kee has just signed a 3 month loan deal for Mansfield. Piggin Mansfield !!!!! :omg: Kee is just the sort of player we should be going all out to sign . Kee was the main reason we are not playing in Div 1 this season after he battered us in the play off semi. He's a quality striker ...

    Loan Rangers......sorry Real Madrid, we can't help you now....bloomin' hornets!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/22800755 It's shame but Watford have ruined it for everyone. I have it on good authority we were in the middle of negotiating with Real Madrid to bring in 15 of their Reserves on loan. "Why aye pet...we woz going to be 'doing a hornet' " said a spokesman...
  3. Mrs Baylock's Poetry Corner - Generally Speaking

    Hello Shrimpers new & old - after the lamentable defeat yesterday it seemed to me that we were lacking that most sturdy & combatable elements of a successful team - Ie a midfield general (& a left back/winger & all action CB). Here is my poetry plea to the all-mighty Ron to sort this out. We...

    Blues Player not bloomin' working

    Try to log in and it comes up with an error. Unable to connect to server. Brilliant. Didn't take long for it to screw up this season. SUFC almost keep an unbeaten record for longer than Player works.

    Question Less than the sum of our parts...?

    The potential signing of Lee Sawyer (which I bloomin' well hope comes off) has got me thinking... why is it that we're not doing better in the League? What's not working with this side? After all, we now have a potential line-up as follows: ________________________Morris_____________________...

    Wenger's Bar

    I'm afraid I won't be writing a column this week, or indeed ever again. Yep, I'm hanging up my presspass and shutting my laptop for the final time. I'm off to France, you see. Arsene Wenger's assertion that he learned everything he needed to know about football in a pub gave me food for thought...

    Please South Africa...

    Please, I beg of you... please dispense with those bloomin' horns obviously handed out to supporters to generate what they mistake as atmosphere. These horns plague every minute of every match of the Confederations Cup. They create an incessant drone that sounds like a swarm of angry hornets...

    Is Ashley The April Fool?

    When the watching world assumes that your latest managerial recruitment is an April Fool's prank, it doesn't exactly bode well for the future. Alan Shearer must have often dreamed about the reaction he would get if he ever slipped into the St James Park hotseat, but I bet he didn't expect...

Right so you've pulled up , now you have to find a victim/ target , you need to find a fella that is sitting on his own and also has a women sitting in front...

    England v. India, 1st ODI

    Well, remarkable goings-on at the Rose Bowl. Remarkable, in that England has been put into bat and has done rather bloomin' well. After 48.2 ov, we're 271/2. Cook has hit his maiden ODI ton (eventually bowled for 102 by Singh), Bell has hit his maiden ODI ton (currently 113* off 111), and KP...
  14. Is tomorrow...

    ...the most important day in southend's recent history? I think it may turn out to be just that as i believe if we win we will stay up but if we lose we will go down. If we lose and get relegated who know's what will happen to the club, we were promoted twice in successive seasons there is no...
  15. Train Tickets

    Have received some train tickets that I ordered earlier in the week. The thing is they're the size of bloomin' plane tickets! Am I supposed to exchange them at the station, or just use them as they are as they have a magnetic stripe on the back? Any help would be much appreciated...

    News from TLG

    Well done to http://www.thelittlegazette.com for revealing that Darren Blewitt, our triallist from West Ham, has been released. Looks like we'll need some cover at centre back, then... They also reveal that Mark Bentley will be banned for the first three games of next season, having picked up...
