    Relegation Issues

    Well, with 41 points so far and another 19 games to go it would take a collapse of a monumental scale for Southend to be any where near the relegation zone come the end of the season ............. the fact that we have been up in the top third of the table for much of the time is a fabulous...

    Very sad news that he's passed away after his collapse during a match. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/32537425

    Soma Mine disaster

    200+ miners killed in a mile deep coal mining collapse in Turkey. For a town where mining is the job then the deaths and sorrow of the whole community must be overpowering. To be a mile under ground, trapped while the tunnel collapses and the oxygen runs out must be horrific. Cheaply mined coal...

    Will PB be dismissed by Ronald before the seasons end?

    Simple question with this monumental collapse in form will PB fall foul of Ronalds impatience? I think if we lose the next two then he will be dismissed. Sturrock was dismissed for less.

    It's been a while since I posted on here but after yesterdays game ,I feeling utterly frustrated with our performance , so it seems easy to share my post match thoughts with fellow shrimpers.I have been to every game this season(home) and have not missed a home game at the hall for some seven...

    Question Is reaching the play-offs a formality?

    I was talking to DtS last night and discussing just how much of a formality it is that we will reach a minimum of the plays offs? Anyone who was scarred for life by the collapse of 1968 will take nothing for granted but the stats are as follows; Looking at League 2 for the last ten years, the...

    Every cloud .............

    Loss v Swindon has saved me (bearing in mind I have to fund SS Jnr too) maybe: 1. Away leg v Barnet £20 petrol, say £35 for two tickets, £20 for food, beer and prog, so £75 2. Home leg v Barnet (will have won it already by away leg but still gotta go) £15 petrol, £35 tickets, £20 food etc, so...

    Hope none of you have 2012 holidays booked with them. Looks like they're become the latest victim of the financial turmoil. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/leisure/8907108/Thomas-Cook-shares-collapse-as-financial-troubles-unfold.html

    Convicts in Sri Lanka

    I'm following an absolutely cracking game on cricinfo at the moment. Sri Lanka made 157/9 having been 121-3 after 14 overs with Jayawardene in full flow. Having scored one run off 5 balls, Watson then hit 56 off the next 17 (6x4s and 5x6s), but his dismissal prompted a collapse of 4 wickets...

    The End of the High Street?

    With the imminent collapse of TJ Hughes following in the footsteps of Habitat, Jane Norman, the Moben kitchens group, which also encompasses Dolphin bathrooms and Sharpes bedrooms in the past 7 days and with HMV just about on the verge of collapse with their current fire sale, is the high...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend united v Gillingham JPT trophy 1st round

    Well what a difference a year makes. This time last year we would have been not overly bothered about this tournemant and would have been eyeing up another shot at the play-offs and a route back into the championsip. Gillingham respectively would have been looking to finish comfortably...

    Food For Thought.

    I've been a bit quiet on here for a while, frankly the whole political arena is depressing. Even so, I've busy doing what I do. I thought I'd share some thoughts.... The Recession The recession was caused, in essence, by the collapse of the banking industry that took a gung-ho approach to...

  16. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    General Test Cricket

    Don't know if many of you cricket fans follow the matches not involving England, but there is a great finish to the India v South African series. South Africa thumped India in the first game, but a first innings collapse put them on course for a series levelling defeat. I was watching the...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...

    I Heart Phil Brown

    As a fan of Southend United, the latest minnow to struggle for air in the small time, I tend to enjoy the misery of Premier League clubs more than most. Newcastle United's demise was particularly pleasing, given the arrogance of Freddy Shepherd towards the lower leagues. It's just a shame he...

    Ron Martin - Big ideas and small pockets.

    The last few days has been a massive shock. I dont think in my heart of hearts that the club will go under but I have had to face the maybe slim reality of life without SUFC. I started to think about all the things Ron has told us and what has actually happened. When you start to think back...
