    Season Review Videos

    All, I am having a clear out and have season review videos from 89-90 season through to 95-96 season inclusive. Is anyone interested in purchasing? I appreciate they are videos, but it is easy to have them transferred to DVD and it would be criminal you throw them out.

    List of shame

    I think we should have a list of shame for players/managers/coaches/staff who have been charged with crimes or fined for criminal behaviour, now there's so many of them. Maybe a ranking system based on whether jailed, etc. Extra points if committed during their time at Southend. Up to everyone...

  5. Question When is the act of killing children 'evil' and when is it not?

    Do you think that it is interesting how certain events result in a violent public reaction compared to others? For instance when you break it down Philpott killed 6 children by accident in an attempt to achieve his goals. He is rightly found guilty of manslaughter. There is public outrage...

    Some random questions

    Just found some old programmes/fanzines from the 90s and early 2000s, some interesting stuff. A few questions: 1) Who officially opened the Far Post wine bar? 2) Which goalkeeper scored for Southend from open play in an Essex Senior Cup game? 3) Which criminal goaded the Southend players in...

    Question Who is better, Cresswell or Barrett?

    With the upcoming clash of the Thames Estuary Derby, it occurs to me that it will be a fine opportunity to compare the on bald goal scoring centre back with an ex bald goal scoring centre back. Who would you rather have? To nail my colours to the mast, I truly believe that Cresswell is a...

    New developments in the Middle East

    I notice after the UN's overwhelming vote to recognise Palestine's state status,Israel has now threatened to build another "3,000 housing units" in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. I hope the PLO will now use their state status to take this matter before the International Criminal Court(ICC)...

    .....was the year the last time a serving British Policeman was convicted in a criminal court for an offence on somebody when in police custody/under arrest - despite over 900 complaints in the last ten years alone. Even then the original charge of manslaughter was dropped and the two policemen...

  13. TACTICS. Crunch Time.

    We have 3 tactics. 1; Play it out wide, especially from midfield with sideways passing only in their locker, 2; direct (Hoof) up to Dickinson from the back.3; Midfielders bursting through to be an extra striker (Timlin and Ferdinand). This was paying results earlier on in the season as...

  16. Roots Hall Break in

    Not sure if this has been picked up already - apologies if it has. Putting aside how annoying this is and 'if I could get my hands on them', the question that comes to mind, or rather one word - Insurance? Are we not insured and if so why aren't we insured against such things???? Glad the...

    Crawley Town and the salary cap

    I think it is broadly accepted that Crawley are already paying wages more than most (if not all) teams in League 2 on average gates of just over 2500. How does the League 2 salary cap work with regards to this? Will they be able to continue doing the same next season? I think the percentage...

    Brilliant Photos of Criminals

    I have been strangely enthralled by this website. It's a series of portraits taken in 1920's by Sydney Police. The high definition of the photos is staggering, and there is a real artistry to it. There is some amazingly ugly women, and some incredibly dodgy looking blokes! Enjoy...
