    Eurovision 2018

    I think the bookies have the UK entry at 200/1 and sadly this contest is currently being inflicted on me by virtue of the fact that I'm in the lounge. Assuming we will again get hammered by the East European cliques I do wonder whether there should be an award for the most commonly used language...

    Promotion & Relegation Teams for 2017/18 Season

    Simple enough - name the teams that you think will get promoted automatically (and play-offs if you wish) and the teams that you think will be relegated. Reasons why you have made your selection would be nice. :smile: Just putting Southend as Champions isn't really helping the discussion...

    Picking a Constituency

    Are there any rules about who can stand where other than paying your deposit? I know that people can be parachuted into constituencies to win safe seats, but it seems odd that say Paul Nuttal can contest Stoke and now Boston within in a few months. Are there any rules about living in the area...

    Popularity Contest

    This board has been running for years, as we know by the sheer fact that Napster continues to dig posts out from almost before Fossetts Farm ever first got mentioned. In that time some users have clocked up a wealth of posts. In my opinion, they have all added plenty of value over the years for...

    Conservative Conservative Leadership Contest

    Gove has just thrown his hat in the ring - doesn't believe BoJo is the man for the job. Never saw that coming.

    Best place to buy fireworks of dubious legality

    I have been invited to a BYO firework display which is quite clearly going to turn into a p1ssing contest between the adult males. Can anyone recommend an establishment that sells fireworks of almost unimaginable power at surprising low prices? None of this Standard/Black Cat crap that...
  8. Morecambe Carnival

    Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but Morecambe is holding its annual Carnival this Saturday so expect roads leading into the town to be busy, not sure if there are road closures as well. Maybe allow extra time for getting there. On the plus side there is an It's a Knockout contest...

    DtS's Last Man Standing competition.

    For no real reason I have decided to run a last man standing contest. Purely for the fun of it. Idea is as follows Each week you have to select one club from the 20 premier football league clubs that you think will win their weekend fixture. If they win you are through to the next round. If...

    Under 18's Match Report Youth Team Win 2-1 At Crawley - 8th September 2012

    Southend United’s first away match in the Football League Youth Alliance this season ended in a 2-1 win at Crawley Town as Ricky Duncan’s team made it three consecutive victories following an entertaining contest. Rob Craven's match report can be found here.

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    England V India

    So the main series of the summer starts today at Lords. Looks to be a pretty well balanced contest and I think we can win but will need a bit of luck with the tosses and overhead conditions. Not going to be the nicest weather for the first test and India are slow starters so we need to...

    Memory Lane A nod to last year's unfortunately relegated superstars...

    They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good... 1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying...

    The 1953 Floods

    I hope the following is of some interest, on a Saturday afternoon in 1953 Southend United played a poor game of football, the crowd had a good old moan and then went home totally unaware of the disaster that would hit locally in a few hours time. Saturday 31st January 1953 Southend United 1-0...
