    I can't get a link to this, but I've just read a piece in one of the financial columns. Shares in propert group Minerva soared yesterday after it accepted a £194m takeover bid - the third offer for the company in the last 3 years. Minerva which owns property blocks in the City of London and...

  6. Isn't it about time Scudamore just left?

    Because he's continually making an arse of himself. Doing the usual run through Saturday's columns, this piece caught my eye if not for the incendiary headline: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/football/premier_league/article7119988.ece Choice pull-put quotes include: It might not...

    It is a shame to now log onto this website and see at least 5 new threads a day that are shaped towards the same issues. Tilson out, Martin out, Finances. The once positive Shrimpers Chit-Chat is a mere needle in a haystack to what it once was. Talk of relegation coincides with a team going...

    I was not aware that Adrian set up the SMS service!! Good luck to the fellow: http://soccerlens.com/interview-with-former-arsenal-and-southend-player-adrian-clarke/3768/ Although, this interview seems to disapper 5 seconds after loading so I will copy and paste for those interested.

    Gerrard Is The Write Stuff

    Steven Gerrard is the Football Writer's Player of the Year. That's better. You see, if you want something done properly, ask a journalist. Admittedly, that saying only holds water if what you want is to have someone drink all the beer in your fridge, or spell something incorrectly, but for once...

    These Kids are smart!! (written by kids) HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (1) You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. - Alan, age 10 (2) No person really decides...

    The College Football Thread

    I've been meaning to start a College Football thread since the season started, and now that the Crimson Tide are number one in the AP and BCS rankings, I've finally got round to it....... It pains me to say it, but I don't see Alabama as the Number One team in the country, but they will play...

    Fabio Capello

    David Beckham’s long wait for a century of England caps should finally come to an end in Paris tonight, thus bringing to an end the tedious and never-ending speculation over his future. Beckham has been a fine ambassador for the nation and deserves this great honour, but England must move on and...
  15. Slipperduke

    We are very fortunate to have in our midst a writer of the calibre of Slipperduke - the columns he writes are invariably well thought out and excelently written. I'm not sure that there are many, if any, fan's forums out there who have a writer as good as this contributing regularly. So it...

    Thumbs up from Darren Wrack

    Walsall's Darren Wrack writes a weekly column in the Racing Post. Ok, he's not exactly a big name, but it often makes interesting reading, certainly more so than the nonsense you get in columns by 'top' players. Anyway, this comment from him caught my eye today: "Doncaster and Southend are the...

    And now the end is near

    All, You may have noticed I haven't been round much these last few weeks. The truth is, now I've moved to Kent and virtually settled down (eek), I don't get involved in all the other SUFC stuff now - I've quit the Trust committee (although their aims are the same as mine) and...

    Southend - the bookies favourites
