    Your Non-football sporting hero?

    We were discussing at work our sporting heroes and it was pretty much all footballers and from the clubs we support, which was a bit boring and predictable. So then we changed it to "non-football" and it was really quite interesting. So lets hear your non-football sporting heroes and the reason...

    Liverpool vs Real Madrid European cup final

    For those not blessed with BT sport or the ability to access it by dubious means or via the pub, you may be interested in this, which I came across on the Radio Times web page. The match is showing in the UK on BT Sport 2 – but BT are also offering a FREE live stream on YouTube for...
  5. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...

    Champions League

    "Enjoyed" the Chelski v Barça match last night (live here on terrestial TV ), though I thought Barça were lucky to get a 1-1 draw, (which should be enough to take back to the Nou Camp).:sad:
  7. Fours, Fives, Sixes and Sevens at Roots Hall

    Can you believe that we've only scored 5 goals in a league game at Roots Hall twice in the last twenty years. The last time was over ten years ago against QPR in Feb 2007 5-0 when Kev put two stoppage time goals past Roycie and the time before that was against Bournemouth 5-3 in March 1998...
  8. Southend United vs Champions League TV

    Sorry to post such a trivial item, but can someone explain to me why when we had a free Tuesday last week, is there full program of Div 1 games that clash with Champions league nights. Obviously this had an adverse affect of last nights crowd being only 5,800. This is not a one off either ...

    Promotion & Relegation Teams for 2017/18 Season

    Simple enough - name the teams that you think will get promoted automatically (and play-offs if you wish) and the teams that you think will be relegated. Reasons why you have made your selection would be nice. :smile: Just putting Southend as Champions isn't really helping the discussion...

    Champions Trophy 2017

    Just saw a post by Ricky Otto in the England thread, but figured this tournament deserved its own one. Can England finally win a major 50 over tournament? Hearts says yes, head refuses to shake off all those years of hurt. And I'm still resentful about my Mum making me to go to school half way...

    Does every body on here actually want Southend United to succeed?

    Because on the face of it we have had two or three years of continual improvement on the field. We certainly have the most exciting squad for a while. We are going well in the league and could challenge for promotion. You would think supporters might be happy and supportive!!? Errr no. Constant...

    Thank you Graham Taylor.

    The " Watford Years" were an incredible serious of matches in the later 1970's that created an excitement and intensity of rivalry not matched since. Yet prior to Mr Taylor taking over at Vicarage Road, I am fairly certain they were just another "local...ish" club we crossed swords with across...

    New Champions League deal

    This really is an utter ****show isn't it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-3787806/Europe-s-elite-shafting-poor-enjoy-Leicester-City-can.html This is the first year I can recall where I have had almost no interest in the Champions League. Not having BT Sport, so not being...
  19. QPR the four year plan.

    If you haven't seen this programme, then you really should. Sky channel 117, London Live. It is being repeated on Sunday at 10:00 so set your sky+. It was a few years ago but follows the season when they had 5 mangers, eventually ending up with Neil Warnock and were promoted as champions the...
