  1. Hi everyone

    New member here. Moved to Essex for a spell from 1989 through 1998-ish and started following Southend United as my "local team" shortly thereafter. Went pretty regularly through the promotion seasons, driving to away games in a C-Reg Rover 216 with Jamie from Grays and Stuart "the postman"...

    10th annual Dave's Joke of the Edinburgh Fringe competition

    The full list of shortlisted jokes: I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change. Ken Cheng (Winner) Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book. Frankie Boyle I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the...
  4. Justin Edinburgh sacked by Gillingham

    Sad news for Justin after a very promising start to his career in management up until the latter part of last season. I hope he gets another chance. Back to Newport, possibly?

    Question Post Brown management options...

    You would surely think that old Ron must be looking at available managers, in light of the fact he must pull the trigger soon... If you were in RMs shoes who would you be touting? A lot of 'out of work' managers have a better win ratio than PB, whether we can afford their salaries, or meet...

    Justin Edinburgh

    Great piece in the Times today on him (Sorry not IT enough to copy on here) However the piece I loved was his time with the boo boys at Spurs " I was one of the longest serving players and became an easy target for the boo boys. It takes a lot to go out there, knowing your not as popular as...

    Edinburgh Fringe

    Off to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time this year. Anyone been before and have any recommendations as to how to get the most out of it? All I have heard so far is to book the bigger acts in advance and then just be open minded as to the other acts. Be great to hear about any...

  12. Rattus Norvegicus

    Justin Edinburgh

    Surprised there hasn't been a thread regarding this gentleman. I remember him playing for Southend as a rather skinny lad, us playing well against Tottingham Hotspurs (Lineker and Gascoigne included), him going to them on loan .......... and then he suddenly "beefs out" and then playing for...

    RBS Hester

    So Hester is RBS bank chief for 5 yrs, of which bank the state (us) own 81%. The bank carries on making losses but is now getting it back to profit however many thousand of jobs are still to go; mainly in England as he cut a deal with the SNP to safe guard Edinburgh jobs: And despite...

    Good win last night in the play off semi first leg for Justin Edinburgh's team. Still think he would have been better bet than Brown

    Justin Edinburgh

    Good luck to Justin Edinburgh who has led his Newport County team into the conference play-offs. Must be in with a shout as a potential future blues boss I would have thought. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/22262206

    Possible new managers

    I would like to know who exactly people think would come and manage this team if Sturrock quits or is pushed? Coughlan is a possibility but of course he might not want the job Harris is a good bet, but he might want more security Tilson is a no-no whilst Ron is here I can only think of maybe...

    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    Holiday recommendations

    I know I've probably posted this a few times already this year, but as some of you will know this year hasn't been easy for me so I'm travelling more than usual. Can anyone recommend somewhere warm, fairly cheap but decent class (no ********s please), bit of nightlife always appreciated but not...
