    Recent DIY wins

    I recently noticed the pressure gauge reading low on my combi boiler. I re-pressurized the system only to notice the pressure drop off again over the next few days. This pointed to a leak in the central heating system which could have involved ripping up newly laid floors at worst and at best...
  2. Question Will the players stay Friday night in Carlisle??

    With the prospect of a very long trip up North to Carlisle at the weekend will the players go up on Friday and stay over or is it up at the crack of dawn on Saturday for the long journey up there. Surely its better to go up the night before but with money tight........ Anyone know??
  3. Farce?

    The not so mighty Berrichonne came 3rd from bottom of league 2 last season so i was looking forward to a year or 2 in the National which is like the conferance in the UK,fair enough they lost more then they won and i was gutted but hey ho lets crack on i thought. Then enter stage right a team...
  4. The burton safe- it's gonna be hard to crack

    In 46 league games only conceded 3 goals or more twice! Did not score in only 14 games! 24 clean sheets. It's gonna be tough to crack

  6. Paul Brush

    Now U-21's coach at Spurs. Shows that even if you have a bad time of it in the conference, if you are patient, opportunities may just arise. Tilly really shot himself in the foot when he took the Canvey job. Surely if he would have waited a while longer he would have got another crack at either...
  7. West Stand

    I'm bringing a couple of friends to the Exeter game in February and was thinking of sitting in the West Stand. Where in the west stand (block) is the best place to sit for crack and atmosphere? Any suggestion greatly appreciated.

    Michael Spillane

    Seems people on here are quite split about Spillane, but I would love to see him stay to be completely honest. Don't really think he's had a fair crack of the whip since he joined and he's still relatively young. Some players settle quicker than others when they join a new club and he may need a...

    Any MOT chaps around? Can a motor fail a MOT for a damaged drivers side wing mirror? I can still see out of it, it just has a crack running through it and the casing is damaged a bit. It also has the indicator light in it, which still works, but it has lost the little piece of white glass at...

    Secondary school appeals

    Guys and girls, hoping to draw on the wealth of knowledge and experience that's seen on here from time to time. To cut a long story short (not sure if specifics matter), we live in Westcliff at the moment but are planning to move into Rayleigh sometime in July. My son is at Blenheim school at...

    The next two games are vital

    Looking at the league table it would have to be said that the next 2 games are vital if we are to keep pace with the top 3 whilst fending off the chasing pack of which chesterfield are one of. We may well be unbeaten but at the same time we are picking up a lot of draws. We have to be looking...

    A-League Grand Final 2012

    WIll be hosted here in Brisbane for the 2nd year running after the mighty Brisbane Roar won the semi-final over two legs vs Central Coast Mariners. Central Coast get another crack to play us again (we have one of those strange Rugby League style finals systems here which I only vaguely...
  13. Opinions

    A wee birdie told me that the gaffer has been studying types of players who have played for Southend and for h is own peace of mind he has watched videos and dvds of games of Southend teams of the past. Under the previous manager the style was no different direct to target man play in in...
  14. New bathroom

    As my bathroom is looking a little worse for wear, and at the weekend one of Mrs Mk's perfume bottles fell off the bathroom cabinet and smashed a great big crack in the sink, has anyone got any idea how much it is to fit a new one? Don't need a khazi as that's in a seperate room.

    The greatest cup games we have never played

    The dramatic consequences of not having been able kill Oldham off on Saturday are now laid bare, for everyone to see. This has set me wondering just how many other times this teasing scenario of knowing we have a 'big club' draw, if only we can get through to the next round, has occured. From...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Oxford

    What a battle this should prove to be. 1st v 4th. The two best defences in League Two go head to head. With us undefeated in 6 at The hall. Oxford on the road have been a bit up and down - P8 W4 D1 L3 F8 A7. But you only have to look at their goals For and Against to realise that they are a...
  17. Spurs Blown Away

    Shall we just dive straight into the main talking point of the match? What on Earth had Ray Wilkins taken before the match? He was like a man possessed last night and had the general demeanour of a crack addict desperately seeking a score. "Stay on your feet, stay on your feet, stay on your...

    Who should our left back be?

    Who should be playing at left back for us in the current squad and why? Personally, I'd opt for Johnny Herd since he's a product of our youth team and I don't believe PS has given him a fair crack of the whip as first choice in the side.

    Plane Crazy!

    After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that...
