    Waifs and strays fc

    How about we take a chance on Steven Caulker ? Like most of our squad he will need managing carefully , but having Caulker and Kiernan as our central defenders would be quality and would allow Anton Ferdinand to sit deep midfield and play in Phil Brown's cherished "Ivan Campo role " ...

    A Review of the Current session

    Just one set of fixtures left in the current session and thought that perhaps time for a quick review of where we are: The first thing that strikes me is that predicting is down to luck with just a bit of common sense, for instance Oxford v Carlisle top v bottom, although in the JPT had to be a...
  5. Pig in a Bandage

    At B & L today both Pig and White doing running and stretching exercises with fitness staff. Pig had his right thigh heavily strapped and seemed to be taking it quite carefully. White seemed much more mobile.

  7. Zone Update Starting Afresh Today

    Today it's League 1 again and during the close season we have allowed a lot of posts to be published that have caused concern to some members. We will not tolerate any abuse, trolling, pathetic attempts to justify repeated drivel or anything that lowers the enjoyment of the majority. I have...

    Boris - Good or Bad

    Now that Boris has his feet under the cabinet table is there an inevitability that eventually he will decide who joins him there? The more I see of the man, the more I think he has a very carefully planned career path and all the bumbling Boris stuff is pure smoke screen. Exactly what is his...

    If you could turn back time

    No not a Cher appreciation thread and not actually a turn back time. If you could relive one childhood day exactly is it happened (without changing the outcome/future) what would it be and why ? I did childhood because marriage, first baby, first girl/boy bed (though that might apply to some...

    Question One For the Referees Out There

    Before the game started last night I noticed Smith very carefully put a mark the edge of the six yard box to show the middle of the goal. I know nearly all 'keepers do it, but is it actually allowed? Also, what is the sanction for a goalkeeper holding onto the ball for more than six seconds...
  12. Payday and doorstep lenders

    Just seen Jo Swinson MP act as the coalition apologist for payday lenders. A truly sorry episode. Anyone considering taking a payday loan (eg wonga, quickquid etc) or doorstop loan (eg provident, pinewood, greenwood etc) should think extremely carefully before doing so. If you are in the sort...

    Harry's Funeral - confirmed October 12th, 11:20am

    As we now have confirmed details, I think it best to have a new thread. Please read the next post by Harry's colleague Terry carefully as that has all the pertinent details. Please also confirm your attendance on this thread. A poll may not be the easiest way to keep tabs, so if you could...

    Question Legal question.

    Read carefully. This hasn't happened to me but I just wondered what the position would be. I pull into a service station. A sign says "It is an offence to fuel your car without the means to pay" or similar. So I put £50 in. I go to pay with a £50 note - all I have on me at the time -and the...

    Question Was this a carefully laid man-trap?

    Had a bit of a strange moment over the Christmas period, that I'm hoping you folks can help me with. The wife had decided that she wanted to watch Sex and the City 2 which I'm sure I don't need to tell you was not really my bag (being neither female or gay). Rather than disappear off to another...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame 7th Round Nominations

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame (courtesy of Yorkshire Blue) For a bit of fun and to honour our club's history, I propose starting a SZ Hall of Fame to recognise the true legends of Southend United. The words legend and great are bandied about a bit too often for my liking, I'd like our Hall...
