    My Aunt's Boyfriend

    I thought I'd tell you all a story. My uncle (my mum's brother) died in 2001. He had a heart transplant in around 1989-1990 and his new heart was finally rejected about 12 years on. He had got to a point where he was on the strongest anti-rejection drugs possible, so there was nothing more the...

    Next Seasons Squad.

    Maybe it is just me, but all I seem to see PB talking about is keeping the players from last year together. These are the same players that he could only motivate, or they were not good enough, to 1 win in the time he spend with them last season. I don't get why when they finished 11th in a...

    Last seasons crowd average

    You worry as a fan if we donot start well,how things crowdwise will pan out Figures out to day show average crowd last season 5,034 compared to previous season average 5,969. With peoples purse strings being tightened and not many"Top" teams coming to the Hall,this could be one of the most...
  4. The difference between ourselves and crewe

    On a few posts I have seen people questioning whether Brown should allow youth players such as Pinnock and Njie to have a shot at the first team. People have also compared ourselves to the renowned success of the Crewe youth team and the talents they have produced! Lest we forget the players...
  5. Question When is the act of killing children 'evil' and when is it not?

    Do you think that it is interesting how certain events result in a violent public reaction compared to others? For instance when you break it down Philpott killed 6 children by accident in an attempt to achieve his goals. He is rightly found guilty of manslaughter. There is public outrage...

    Comparing the budget and players

    I was just having a thought about the size of our squad compared to last season and it got me thinking. I'd say we're probably about 8 players off of the size of the squad we had last season, maybe even more (can't be bothered to count). In the RM and SK Q&A, RM actually said we are paying more...

    Quick Hello!

    Always read the forums and thought it was time to finally sign up so I can join in! Blues fan since 2002 so a fairly new compared to most of you. I'm at college, living in Southend and will probably be spending the majority of my time in the gaming section talking about Football Manager. So, Hello!
  10. European Football

    I was just wondering people's thoughts on the state of football in England compared to the state of football in other countries such as Spain and Italy. Who's league is better? Who plays better football? Who's is in a better financial state? Thoughts please. :thumbsup:
  11. It's All Cobblers

    Comments from Mr Boothroyd following yesterday's match. "For me, I wouldn't have been able to tell which team was at the top and which was at the bottom, for long periods. "I think the clearest thing is that they bring a player on who scores two goals for them. We didn't switch on in the...

    Yet another Statto Promotion comparison!

    Sorry Zoners slow day at the office so here's yet another Statto comparison which proves absolutely nothing but makes me look extremely busy at work. So how are we doing this season compared to other promotion seasons? Converting two points to a win to three where applicable this how we...
  13. How bad is Div 2 football compared to ten years ago...

    After watching yesterdays offering, I couldn't believe how bad the standard of football is at the moment. I'm not knocking our victory, but we hardly needed to turn up to get the win. I did overhear that Vale had numerous people out and that they were playing their kit man in defense, so that...

    Attendance Comparisons

    There has been a lot of talk about our attendances so far. Some say they are poor. Some say they are about right. Some say they are decent. So I thought I'd do a bit of painstaking research into it.... Below shows the average attendances for the first 8 home games this season v the first 8...
  16. Can you enjoy/like a player from a rival team?

    Ok, so was chatting to a United fan about yesterday's match, and he was saying that while it was massively disappointing, he couldn't help but enjoy watching Balotelli, Silva et al... and also he called Balotelli a legend. I said that it was unusual to hear a fan say stuff like that about a...

    Steve Mildenhall

    Conceeded five between the sticks for Millwall tonight @ Wolves :smile:. Hasn't played much since he was quick to leave the Hall. Never really rated him compared to a few of our other keepers down the years, well aside from that late worldy at Stamford Bridge

    We'll make it to Fossetts

    *Typed up for the Exiles* As expected RM makes a statement to the Echo a week before the AGM, he is becoming more predictable by the day. Southend United chairman Ron Martin expects the football club to be playing at the new FF stadium next year. He spoke out as Blues' latest accounts were...
  19. Blair Sturrock -

    delighted that the mangers son managed smash one in from 4 yards out - and get his pic on the OS - he does get such an easy ride compared to the stick Harrold and Paynter used to get - but he should learn to take defeat on the chin and not to make disrespectful remarks about the opposition...
  20. Are we better or worse

    I know the current squad had been thrown together and many have thought of it in a negative manner but how bad or good is it compared to last season under Tilly? S. Mildenhall v G. Morris. I give the edge to Mildy but not by much. S. Francis v S. Clohessy...
