  1. Removing a fridge

    All, I need to remove a fridge from a very narrow gap - in fact the old fridge was "kicked" into place as the dumbass plasterer boarded the wall when I told him not to. There is literally NO space between wall and fridge. Now I've been told I can't chop it in half with a chainsaw - has anyone...
  2. Getting a bad name

    I was listening to Chelmsford Radio this morning (same arm as Southend Radio so I presume same news bulletins) where they said a group of Southend fans are being sought by police following rowdy behaviour on the train from Liverpool Street ahead of the Wimbledon game. The radio said they were...

    Maniacs on trains.

    I boarded the 17:09 from Limehouse tonight, stood near the door and sparked up a bit of FIFA on the PSP. I could hear someone talking and thought it was someone on a mobile however when I looked up there was chap (possibly about 20 years old) walking up and down the carriage clutching a can of...

    A summary of the last 10 days?

    Hi guys, Not sure if I have been missed (;)) but I boarded a coach to France at lunchtime on Saturday 14th and only got back yesterday afternoon. Had a quick look at the league table which made great viewing. Anyone care to fill me in (in brief form) what has been happening in the last week and...

    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...

    My weird day trip to Bristol.

    Decided to go to Bristol Rovers as its getting close to baby time and I want to be close enough to home so that I can get back incase MrS DtS decided to pop. As we have three weeks to go a look at the fixture list told me this was the last one I could aim for. I am allowing myself home games as...

    Shepherd's Bush Shrimper's Scunny Report

    Apologies for the delay with this one. Makes less depressing reading than reports of our humping in Bristol though.... It’s fair to say that the North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire region is not a happy hunting ground for us Shrimpers. We very rarely seem to pick up points at the lovely...

    Newcastle Away 1992-93

    50 Things To Do In A Lift

    1. Make race car noises when anyone gets on or off. 2. Blow your nose and offer to show the contents of your kleenex to other passengers. 3. Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: 'Shut up, all of you just shut UP!' 4. Whistle the first seven notes of 'It's a Small...

    Slipperduke's Mission To Millwall

    With a few edits, this is what the good people of Singapore will be waking up to tomorrow. MtS had a very lucky escape in being cut out of the final edit. 500,000 people could have found out exactly what his idea of a pre-match meal is... As a mere, and very occasional, foot soldier of the...
  14. When have you run out of money?

    It was the early 80's for me ..I was living in Canada, had been for 3 months. I was working for a glasing company at the time on about 1000 dollars a month and free board which was ok. But it was getting close to Christmas and I was starting to feel home sick and missing my partner who was due...
  15. When the Saints really do go marching in...

    AFTER Saturday’s result the local rag down this way had the headline ‘Roots Hall Of Shame’, which made me chuckle. However, things got a whole lot funnier when I read today’s edition. Is losing to Southend really that bad? Man storms studio and turns air blue THE airwaves turned blue when a...

    Worst place we have to go this season

    My opinions of the towns obviously. Not very PC I know. My worst is Bradford. Never seen anything like it. Boy of 10 having a pony in the road, Street after street of boarded uo houses. Horrible
  19. For all those who went to Grimsby and Northampton

    Just like to what a difference i thought there was between the two places. Grimsby as a area seemed a bit of a sh*thole small houses either boarded up or broken windows. Northampton was a nice area very welcoming nice area. Grimsbys ground wasnt very nice not the best views, some terracing left...

    The Longest Day

    Hello all, First comment about the game. Groundhog Day. Played ok for 90 minutes - players blowing out of their backsides in extra time. The first goal scored was always going to be the clincher. Super Cheese - what was he doing? However, the purpose of this topic is to describe the train...
