    The battle for survival

    The only excitement that comes close to the battle for the Premier League is the fight to merely stay in it for another season. The financial rewards of the top flight are now so vast that relegation is no longer an occupational hazard that can be thrown off with one straight-forward recovery...

    The View from my Window at Work

    I actually have quiet a nice view from my window at work. I sit with Waltham Abbey to the right of me whcih is surrounded by a large tree in full bloom, a lawn that contains a number of daisys and a perimeter brick wall about 2ft high. The wall though has a number of cracks in but this merely...

    Huddersfield Fans view on the game....

    Basically, it pains me to say it but it's true. Huddersfield Town Football Club are an absolute ****ing joke. From top to bottom, the awards we won the other week are just papering over the cracks. First of all, regarding the match - we weren't very good. Southend deserved to win, they played...

    How does my work mate get out of this problem. (Not for kids)

    Right, I have a work mate. I have been asked by him not to name him in case an of you boys ever meet him. So For to preserve his anonimity I will name him Neb. Right no Neb is at home the night before last - He usually lives with his Mrs but she has been away in Amsterdam on a "course" for a...

    Belly laughs!

    My wife has always said I have quite a sick sense of humour with regards to other peoples situations/ailments and stuff, and with hand on heart she is more or less right. Pople falling over gets me, especially when they try and correct their self in mid drop, but she was telling me a story of...

    Songs that make you chuckle

    I'll start with this one. The original version of 'Paintball's Coming home' is hilarious but this new one just cracks me up - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex5WYA3pkUo&feature=related I'm sure we all know people like this.......'they buy soup in cartons, not in tins' :hilarious:
  7. Ponder These

    Can you cry under water? How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered? If money doesn't grow on trees then why do banks have branches? Since bread is square, then why is sandwich meat round? Why do you have to "put your two cents...

    The fbm view and ratings - Leicester

    TEN MAN BLUES SNATCH LATE POINT Southend battled against all odds to claim a precious point at Roots Hall today which will assist in the fight against relegation. It may be easy for some to see this as two points dropped but given the manner of last weeks defeat, the midweek furore, the fact...

    Valentine's Day

    I wrote this three years ago and I still stand by it. Welcome to my least favourite day of the year. I f**king hate Valentine’s Day, corporate bull**** Hallmark-invented ****. If you love someone, you should treat them like the god or goddess they are every ****ing day of the year, not...

    Tilsons Ability At This Level

    WE all love Tilson but are the cracks showing? can he produce the goods 3rd time round?
  11. Best sports team names

    I know I've mentioned it before, but the NZ basketball team being called the 'Tall Blacks, always cracks me up. Any others.....?

    Nathan Barley

    Just got round to watching Fridays first episode of the new C4 comedy, Nathan Barley. Written and directed by Chris Morris (The Day Today, Jam, Brass Eye etc) who is one of my favourite comedians - though he isnt actually in it, the script is unmistakeably Morris! His use of language is...
  13. Southend 1 Kiddie 0

    This was my first game for 6 months, and although I've been carefully following proceedings its not quite the same as seeing the team in the flesh. Personnel wise we were pretty much the same as 6 months ago. The only changes were in central defence where I got my first glimpse of Adam...
  14. Bart a bit of an Embo??

    I have a horrible feeling Bart may be a bit of an Embo >> Apparently one mistake and he cracks up. He seems to have let in an aweful lot of goals over the years.!! A few things that a Yahoo search threw up on Bart >>> "For the first time since the departure of Steve...
  15. I feel cheated

    This may provoke abit of backlash,however as its a free speech board,I wish to convey my disgust at Ron Martin & The club for another shabby preformance regarding players. Lets not forget he employed Steve Wignall,and from peer pressure sacked him,he then touted Ian Atkins and failed...
