    at least discipline has improved.....

    I am surprised at how few bookings we are picking up at the moment (1 yellow in the last 3 games - compared with 9 for the opposition). At least discipline seems to have improved a bit - not even Granty is getting booked for dissent!

    Southend's 4 goal plus wins

    Your memory plays tricks, but I seem to remember in my younger days that we would thrash sides on a regular basis compared todays scraping through by a single goal, but is this true or is just my rose tinted glasses? Below I've listed every victory by four goals or more since 1958 (apolgies...
  4. Question How many games do we lose late in the game???

  5. A bit of respect and perspective?

    So we got a great win last night. And Paul Sturrock has assembled a new squad of players in a relatively short period of time. And it's all different and new and there's some promise of what might be achieved. I also have a lot of regard for what Paul Sturrock has achieved as a manager at...

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

    Spanish Football is in trouble..

    The death knell of Spanish Football as we know it is sounding. The rampaging bulls of Barcelona are over-taking the now wounded lion of Madrid in an attempt to show dominance not just in Spain, but in Europe as well.

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...
  10. Question What class do you consider yourself?

    Much of South East Essex has been prosperous compared to other parts of the country for as long as I can remember yet anecdotal evidence suggests SZ is used by people who mainly consider themselves to be working class. So why the discrepancy? Are lots of people deluded about their background or...

  13. Would you have her courage?

    On Mr B's "Pictures of Birds" thread, Boris posted up a picture of a lady called Sarah Jane Howe. It was a bit different from the others on the thread because, as Boris pointed out, she seemed to have no nipples. Below is her story - and as asked in the thread title, would you have her courage?

    Essex Senior League: Manager Quits In The Clubhouse

    You missed a cracker today down at Southchurch Park Arena. Finished Southend Manor 6, Mauritius Sports 1. It could and should have been 10-3 as both teams missed dreadfully in front of goal. That open goal against Wycombe was nothing compared to today! Being the great bloke that I am, I...
