    Reality at last, relief..and maybe greater urgency?

    At last!! After what seems like several season of not winning but clinging onto a false position (false because we had played more games) in a Play-Off position - the league finally has a more realistic look and feel about it. Is almost a relief. Plymouth Argyle currently deserve to be in 7th...
  2. Still clinging on !

    Amazing even after this poor run we are still 7th yet the pack have now closed in for the kill with York Plymouth Hartlepool and Cheltenham ready to pounce. With Corr now suspended this has to force Phil's hand by dumping his 451 and going 442 and take the game to the opponent. I did not go...
  3. Pre-Match Thread vs Plymouth

    At the moment we are clinging onto our play-off hopes by our finger tips. If we win tonight then we lose our grip, but win and the hope may return. 5 players having a late fitness test, with Cresswell being one, but we have Corr back after illness. I'd like to see: Bentley Clohessy Mohsni...

    Hi Y'All!

    Hello. Another Newbie, back home after years of living and working away. Enjoying the special atmosphere at Roots Hall again and clinging to (fading hopes) of a promotion and Cup double. Come on you Blues!

    Question Clubs in financial difficulties

    I see the BBC are reporting that Exeter cannot afford to keep some their existing players. I wonder how many teams in the division are financially clinging on with their finger nails. Southend ............. errrhhh, enough said already. Accrington - putting a team together on a pittance of a...

    Is this the beginning of the destruction......

    Is this the beginning of the destruction of the mould of British politics or is it the beginning of the destruction of the Liberal Democrats? Quite a day yesterday, which ended with probably the only really practical solution on the table. Briefly, hopes were raised on the idea of some...
  7. Paterson interview from SSN

    Interesting article. Southend supporters have certainly been put through the wringer this season, with the very existence of their club hanging in the balance at one stage. It appeared such issues had been laid to rest once a £2.1million tax bill was settled with HM Revenues and...

    Question Strange places/situations you've woken up in

    After a night of teenage binge drinking I once slept on a crazy golf course in Tenerife (hole number 9), with my head under a bridge and the rest of me pointing down the "green". Sadly, when the security guard and his Alsatian came onto the course to open up in the morning I woke up quickly and...

    Dervitte Derwoo !

    Am I the only night owl still up and clinging to the hope that tomorrow brings us some good news ? Please Harry, can we borrow him again ?

    Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife... A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this to a forum: Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest... The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was...
  11. ESB's Champions League Run Down

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...

    Not necessarily Southend related but...

    It fills me with optimism / envy to see a club not necessarily that much bigger than Southend go to Wembley and go up. I'm still clinging onto the hope that in time we'll have everything in place with a great team spirit and go on to become the undoubted biggest team in Essex. Who knows, one...

    Poland v Austria

    Did anyone watch this match last night? I was doing my womanly duties of ironing last night and though I would put this match on whilst doing so. I thought it would be a complete snooze fest. It actually turned out to be quite an interesting game. Austria looked like they were going to walk...
  16. Unusual downloading behaviour

    I downloaded two songs on limewire last night, 'Sleeping Satellite' by Tasmin Archer and 'User Friendly' by Marilyn Manson (the one with that great lyric 'I'm not in love but I wanna f@ck you til somebody better comes along'). Does this show me to be a man of fascinating but eclectic taste? Or...

    The Day after Tomorrow...

    After refusing to watch american blockbustibng movies I finally yielded and obtained "The Day After tomorrow" from the Video shop. It confirmed all the reasons why I swerve these films. One man crosses the Ice waste to help his son, whom he thinks can't fend for himself, in the...
