  1. The Dome

    Junior Blues Meet the Players Day today

    Will report back later, I hope to see some of you over at Boots and Laces for this exclusive JB event. Do come and introduce yourself if I don't already know you! Still surprised at how many SUFC supporting dads (in particular) haven't yet signed their little cherubs up - it's incredibly good...
  3. Helllooo, Yellloowwws, Yelllowwwsss!

    HeyShrimpers, Nervous,very nervous! No, not at the very easy process of joiningShrimperzone, but the longing hope filled gazes at my phone. Waiting,waiting... will the ticket office call back with Morecambe tickets?! Is'ntit great that an essentially simple sport and supporting SUFC (I'msure we...

    Bit of legal advice on wills needed

    Just a quickie if there are any legal bods out there. My Dad (in his late 70's) has just found out that his brother and his wife died a couple of months ago down in Devon. For some reason none of my dads family were advised, even though his brother was in hospital for 3 weeks before passing...

    Something for separated or divorced Dads maybe? Or just to laugh/sympathise?

    After over 4 years of separation my divorce finally came through just before Christmas. Everything is now sorted and I can move on. However, something I find quite cathartic is writing... so I have penned a blog. I intend to update every 3/4 weeks and will share some gems from the...
  6. half time all on the pitch

    Went to my first ever professional cricket match Sunday to see Essex V Summerset, match was really boring and the crowd were so so quite. What was interesting was the interval, all the crowd went on to the pitch, adults with their beers and fags looking at the wicket and watching the ground...

    Question Taking young kids to football.?

    Mums and Dads, I am half thinking of taking my daughter to her first game on Saturday vs Northampton. We are staying at my Dads all weekend so I thought it made sense to give the wife a break and take my daughter to her first meaningful game. Her past SUFC experience is the away friendly at...
  8. Question Blair Sturrock: Please Please Please why......

    Why does Blair Sturrock turn his back to goal and why does he always pass to the 'nearest player' I looked at his old club stats, i notice he couldnt make an appearance at TRURO CITY? and he likes to follow daddy to his clubs. Its like being a 8year old where your dads the manager and you gain a...
  9. Memory Lane Pubey's trip down memory lane

    I don’t know why, I guess I’m just getting old, but yesterday I had a real sense of nostalgia. I spent the evening thumbing through our wedding album with Mrs Pubey, a regular pastime, and my eye was drawn to a family who have been ‘family friends’ all my life. They were...
  10. Find me a laptop for under £500

    The missus needs a new laptop, want it to be fast, powerful. decent battery and good screen. anyone seen any good deals? I'm not too clued up on who make decent Laptops at the moment. I have a work Toshiba which is very reliable, and I've always coveted my Dads VAIO, so if there is a Sony for...
  11. Owen Coyle

    Excuse the rambling, I have a soft spot for Burnley.... Owen Coyle to Bolton. If there ever was a mismatch made in heaven then this is it. Up until a few years ago Southend v Burnley was a regular fixture. Dour and difficult to play away and we'd look to get points off them at home. Yet I...

    People of SZ, Having just sent an email to a rather unusually named person at work, i trawled through our company email list to find our top 10 best named people. They are as follows: Aileen Archdeacon - obviously her second job Charmaine Dullard - oh dear Clodagh Memery - sounds like...

    Question Players you would most/ least like to holiday with and why

    If you won a Blues Lottery competion and had to go on holiday with one of the players who would you most / least like to go with and why? I think Adam Barrett would be a good laugh to go away I as you could have a bit of banter with him. As were both recent Dads we could swap tales of...

    Congratulations to Burnley getting back into the top division 30 odd years after dropping out. I've a soft spot for The Clarets as they were my old dads team. :clap::clap:
  18. Block W

    Very dissappointing to see some shaken up looking Dads leading their young kids away from Block W when the unpleasantness broke out - It seems the clubs sells Block W to latecomers and newcomers meaning if you are new to Roots Hall or bringing kids for the first time you are going to be...
