    Question Your dream job?

    If you could do any job in the world, what would it be/have been and why? There's two things I've always wanted to do. The first would be a football scout/youth team coach, as I think the satisfaction of spotting a talented 8 or 9 year old that no ones ever heard of, signing him up, seeing him...

    Memory Lane Chesterfield Cup Success let's milk it!

    We're all hyped up by todays result and recent results, so why not milk it a bit and as Memory lane seems all the rage at the moment how about Chesterfield in the cup 1939. My granddad (DTSs great granddad) went to the abandoned match. THE SPECIAL TICKETS The Southend United Supporters Club...

    HK Ferry Crash

    Woke this morning to hear this 36 dead so far. Yesterday was a national holiday culminating in a firework display that was breathtaking. 25 minutes and just when you thought it can't get any better they kept coming bigger and better. Some of these people were on their way to it. The ferries...

    My thoughts..for what they are worth...

    Firstly, I am more disappointed tonight than I can remember being as a Southend United supporter ...and that includes relegations and watching much, much poorer teams. I am eating a Sainsbury's Cheese & Tomato sandwich when I should be celebrating. A great many of you will have more valid...
  6. WWII in photos - incredible website

    http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/ww2.html I'm not a particularly big history/war buff, but this website is breathtaking. Just a few pics... Symbolic of the defense of Sevastopol, Crimea, is this Russian girl sniper, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who, by the end of the war, had killed a confrimed...

    England in India

    England rack up a huge 367/4 in our latest warm up match in India Jonny Bairstow cracks a breathtaking 104* from just 53 balls and there were big 50s from Cook, Kieswetter and Trott too http://www.espncricinfo.com/india-v-england-2011/engine/current/match/521216.html

    TV Highlights Accy v Southend

    Accy v Southend 1hr 3 mins in. I wasn't there, but from the highlights: Great goal by Hall, the way he struck it made it look like it would clear the stands but it dipped superbly. Sawyer's run was breathtaking. He made the player look a right mug when he pushed the ball one side of him and...

    DSK A tragedy for the world (apart from Mr Sarkozy?)

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-13402845 A breathtaking story with the likelyhood of tragic consequences. It is difficult to see how DSK can continue the delicate negociations concerning the problem economies of the Eurozone, with these charges hanging over his head. There seems to me...

    Chesterfield another penalty ridden game 1939

    Well history doesn't exactly repeat itself but there are distinct similarities: Monday 16th January 1939 SOUTHEND UNITED 4-3 CHESTERFIELD (after extra time) F.A. Cup Round 3 Replay Sensation followed sensation in a series of breathtaking thrills in Southend United’s replayed third round tie...

    At last the truth about where the money came from

    After some careful research I am in a position to reveal the incredible story about where the money came from and how, only through incompetance, we failed to procure more than four times that sum which could have been used either to start the new stadium or invest in new players. It's an...

    District 9 - anyone been to see it?

    I have. I bloody loved it. Without giving anything away story wise for the uninitiated, discuss it in here. The trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6PDlMggROA - really didn't tell you ANYTHING about what the central storyline of the film would be, merely the background setup, so after...

    Spain Pacify Iraqi Resistance

    Spain 1-0 Iraq Villa 55 The trouble with winning well is that it never goes unnoticed. For every barnstorming 5-0 victory, resplendent with glorious passing and breathtaking goals, there's always a coach out there somewhere who watches it and thinks, 'that's not going to happen to me.' More...

    Champions League Reports

    Apologies, I've been rushed off my feet this week. Here's both games for you. Is it so inconceivable that Arsenal could end this strangest of seasons as Champions of Europe? Arsene Wenger described his side as 'super-outsiders' before the first leg of their clash with Villarreal, but even after...

    Wembley: A Nation(al Stadium) divided?

    As a stadium, I still feel entirely undecided about Wembley. It's most impressive outside, lit up at night - a glowing beacon calling sports fans to its central hub. And it's a very slick operation, delivering colossal volumes of food and drink at breakneck speed, being very sensibly laid out...

    The Culture Show Special - Martin Freeman in Motown

    Anyone else see this? Really good program and has had me listening to Motown on my iPod almost non stop since I watched it. Just the most perfect pop songs, absolutely breathtaking in their simplicity and brilliance.

    Brown ballsing it up again?

    German Finance Minister calls Brown's measures "crass" and "breathtaking" The German Minister's comments seem to be rooted in common sense. Since Gordon Brown was the chief architect of our failed economic strategies in the past 11 years, is he the right man to try and fix it?

    Interview with an Exile: Part 4 - Overseas Shrimper

    This week, Mark (Overseas Shrimper) from Malta takes part in the Interview with an Exile... 1) How long have you been an exile? A) I have been in exile since ’95, mostly in Malta but with stints in India and back in London. Even though I returned to the UK, it was for work and I...

    Scolari Glad of 'Ugly' Chelsea

    Don't worry, they can still win ugly. Chelsea may have proved this season that they're capable of playing breathtaking football, but they needed a reprisal of the hard-working, tough-tackling days of Jose Mourinho in order to overturn Roma at Stamford Bridge last night. The Italians arrived in...

    Darryl - Southend legend

    I think we need to take a moment here to say thanks and remember one of Southend's greats. Will miss shouting chants at him about Colchester and watching him go mental on the pitch about the scum. The time he booted the Colchester goal post was great for anyone that remembers it! He is going...
