  2. Ref Watch ....... Bury A Kettle's swansong ?

    Refwatch 2015/16 .................... number 52 of 52. I should imagine both clubs can't wait for the season to end. Just after we played them last, half way through the season, we were 7th and they were 8th. Both clubs have plunged 7 places in the second half of the season and they remain one...

    Derek Spence: A Top Man

    The great turn out of Shrimpers on Saturday aside, a little positive story from Blackpool for you. Somehow, over the last 45 years of footie watching, Bloomfield Road had never appeared on my radar. That was corrected this weekend when I made it for my 92nd current league ground. To mark the...

  6. Ref Watch ....... Kettlewatch Burton A

    Our twelve matches against Burton since they were promoted to the Football League have seen seven red cards, with, surprisingly, six of them having been shown to home players. Combine this with a referee who has produced four red cards in his last three matches and things could get lively...
  7. Ref Watch ...... Carlisle H

    We have never had a 0-0 against Carlisle at Roots Hall and our last six home matches against them are very much honours even with 2 wins apiece and 2 draws. Saturday's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, ex Wing Commander Trevor Kettle who used to work for the...

    We had a Vailaint Combination boiler and although I always think of it as a new boilers it was 10 years ago. Water seems to go hot and cold when the pressure is high. Having a service next week but I fear neglecting to get it serviced over the years will have done it harm. I have been told on...

    Just a little bit of SUFC history

    Southend United played at the Stadium 1934 to 1955, but the greyhounds are long gone and the ground demolished and now is the site of the Greyhound Retail park off of Sutton Road. It is now the home of Bingo, Iceland, KFC etc and nothing left of the old ground. The most southerly shop in the...
