  1. Time for Brown to take a holiday!

    Once again yesterday poor decisions cost us the match, we could all clearly see Bury getting back into the match(same as the Exeter game) so he makes a change to 451 at home! We all know we can't hold onto a one nil lead. We are no way as good at the back as last season when we had the the likes...
  2. John White

    Enough is enough, since his shoulder injury not been the same player. Poor performance at centre half playing hoof ball and should have cost us a goal ,saved by Bentley. At full back decent enough defender but gives us nothing going forward. Time to lose the captaincy John and take a long holiday.

    Lost Season Card Costs

    Ratboy managed to lose his season ticket sometime between the end of the Shrewsbury game and today. So I sent him down the club shop to get a replacement. Whilst they gave him a ticket for tomorrow they said a replacement card would cost.... wait for it.... wait for it.... THIRTY QUID THIRTY...
  5. Benefit Society !

    The Tories intend to freeze benefits for the unemployed and so called needy . I discovered recently a family I know receive £2,400 every 4 weeks excluding their council rent,Add the rent costs and they are on 3k or take home £750 each and every week! How many of us take home £38,000 after...

    Engine question

    Why are V8 engines only in the bigger production engined cars? Ignoring cost of manufacture, what would be the pros and cons of e.g. A one litre V8?

    Weekly Southend quiz

    I think we should have a weekly quiz - as it distracts us from the everyday. Here's the first 10: 1) What did Shaun Goater say was Steve Tilson's only flaw as a manager? Correct 2) In one game, Roy McDonough was given his first captaincy, got sent off, waited in the tunnel at half time to have...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend 0-1 Wimbledon

    A tough result to take, it was just frustrating to watch. We dominated completely and should have been ahead at half time and I think eventually that is what cost us. No game against Akinfenwa is easy but it made it a difficult job and we just couldn't seem to get our passing together at the...

    2014/2015 Predictions

    What are everyone's predictions for the new Premier League season? I fancy Chelsea for the title, as most pundits seem to. They've got the best defence in the division and I think Costa could make the difference for them. City, Arsenal and United to make up the rest of the top 4. Tough to pick...

    Blackpool

    Looks like they have been taking advice from Ron regarding how to keep cost down over the summer months! Im also conscious that if they do find themselves needing a manager, we have someone with history at that club who may quite fancy a move back up North. Stranger things have happened!

    Best 'unknown' forward/defender performance you've seen so far.

    Admittedly I haven't watched every game, but the two that have really taken my eye so far are Joel Campbell for Costa Rica going forward and González for the Yanks at the back (yeah, surprised me too!)
  14. England v Costa Rica

    Anyone bothering with our swan song this afternoon? I'll be at work until 6, so I'll miss it anyhow - what's the betting will stick 4 or so past CR now the pressure is off?

    22 Jun 2014 12:09:56 Two new signings to be revealed next week according to an inside source. One is from Conference North and one from the Conference. No names but one is a wide player and the other an attacking midfielder. It also appears that the new stadium plans are almost certainly now...
  16. The 6.4 million quid police bill.

    How much do current officers earn? 9 police on duty 24/7 which appears to cost £11,000 per day so over a grand each nice work.

    Soma Mine disaster

    200+ miners killed in a mile deep coal mining collapse in Turkey. For a town where mining is the job then the deaths and sorrow of the whole community must be overpowering. To be a mile under ground, trapped while the tunnel collapses and the oxygen runs out must be horrific. Cheaply mined coal...
