    Best cover versions

    This tweet from a fellow Southend fan yesterday got me thinking... 582938081956929537 My answer was Lonnie Donegan's version of 'Rock Island Line' and also Blur's 'M.O.R.' which isn't officially a cover of Bowie's 'Boys Keep Swinging' but comes very close to the mark. Countless others though...

    Annoyingly friendly West Ham fans....

    Living in Stratford (East Laaaaaandan) I encounter a lot of West Ham fans. My impression is they all share a soft spot for Southend. I was in the a shop the other day sporting an SUFC home shirt when a hammers fan was in the queue next to me. I saw he had a hammers cap on and out of the corner...

  11. Memory Lane Pubey's trip down memory lane

    I don’t know why, I guess I’m just getting old, but yesterday I had a real sense of nostalgia. I spent the evening thumbing through our wedding album with Mrs Pubey, a regular pastime, and my eye was drawn to a family who have been ‘family friends’ all my life. They were...

    The Ballad of Balloon Boy

    No matter how lethargic and fuzzy-headed you feel this Monday morning, no matter how unenthusiastic you were about the idea of leaving your bed, console yourself with the knowledge that at least one person out there is having it worse than you. Somewhere, presumably on Merseyside, one little boy...

    Michael Owen: The End of an Era

    Just found this piece on a football fans site, it isn't written by a Liverpool or Newcastle fan but it sums the downfall of his career well. Thought it was worth a read.
