    Let the train take the strain?

    So I've just started at a new job and am trying to work out what will be my best commute. There are two decent options for the journey from Hemel Hempstead to Camden. Option 1 - short drive to my local station (buses in Hemel are infrequent and unreliable), pay for parking, get a train to...

  4. Recurring dreams

    Anyone have recurring themes during their snooze time? Me, 1) Having to travel very long distances to get to work meaning the precise timing of buses/trains. 2) Regular one: My final year dissertation for Uni either being not done at all or hugely behind time with a day left to hand it in...

    What is making you smile or laugh today?

    I feel we need this to go alongside the hacking you off thread. I'll start. My journey into work so far has involved me stepping heavily on the toes of someone on the minibus. She was wearing flip flops and I know she was in pain, she made that quite plain to me in Cantonese. Over here we have...

    Memory Lane BLUES Thrash OLDHAM/New Ground on hold

    Well it’s not exactly “Breaking News” as this news broke sixty years ago when in Season 1951-52 Southend beat Oldham 5-0 in the second round of the Cup while an announcement was made about the new stadium (Roots Hall) being delayed. This how it was in early December 1951...

    The 1953 Floods

    I hope the following is of some interest, on a Saturday afternoon in 1953 Southend United played a poor game of football, the crowd had a good old moan and then went home totally unaware of the disaster that would hit locally in a few hours time. Saturday 31st January 1953 Southend United 1-0...

    For the attention of Mr Robbie Cowling

    Firstly can I have my £18 back that you charged me last night. I know why you played the games against Norwich and us so you could plunder money from the least considered people on football - the fans. What I witnessed last night bore no resemblance to football. The car park was in a better...

    Just Another Afternoon At The Match

    Today was a rare opportunity for me. With local non-league football and my lad's training wiped out by waterlogged conditions, resulting in the radio show I would have been doing to cover it all also biting the dust, popping along to the Hall became an unexpectedly pleasant compensation...

    Doing the right thing!!

    If there are all these buses currently running in London packed to the rafters with commuters and 60 to 70 people waiting at the bus stops to try and get on.........Do the car drivers driving past the bus stops on their own have a duty to stop and offer lifts? Currently being debated on BBC...

    Breaking News Swindon vs Southend - Postponed

    Listening to BBC Swindon and Mark Issacs from Swindon Town, said that all approaches to the ground are safe for the public and there is a third of the pitch still to clear. The Ref's pitch inspection is at 8-30 and at present the game is ON! As for the snow banks around the pitch these are...
  14. Tribute to Steve Tilson II

    Would love to ask Mr Coral or Ladbrokes what price they would give between Tilly, Alex Ferguson or Wegner being first manager out. Or out of the top 7 longest serving, I would be willing to make a sizeable wager [if the odds were favourable] that ST will not be first to go. Since our polls...

    The Olympics

    I went along this afternoon to see the Olympic Flame pass through our nation's fine capital. I for one, am excited about the prospect of the Olympics coming to Britain in 4 years time. For me there is something special about the Olympics going all the way back to its roots in Ancient Greece...
