  4. Navigating through London on Saturday

    Just thought I'd let you all know of a pretty useful app/website called Citymapper, gives you the fastest routes through London to wherever as well as train delays, train times, walking times etc. Heres the route from Liverpool Street to The Green Man for example. And heres the (short) route...

    Road Travel To Bury

    Just arrived in Manchester and thought I'd warn anybody driving up to be aware that there are potential delays due to roadworks either side of the M6 toll roads starting South of Coventry. When moving it was 50 mph average speed cameras all through it. I'm writing this from the comfort of my...

    Is No News.....

    I can't see any official updates on the OS since Feb'2013 (maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place.) So do you guys think that lack of news is a sign of obstacles & problems causing delays, or do you think that everything is quietly running along albeit at a slow pace?

    1st game of the season - starting to get excited already....

    Normally I book the first two weeks of the kids holidays off but as we went to Florida in March and New York in June I only have enough holiday for a week this year, which is lucky as didnt even think about the season starting so early. However that does mean I will be in the Lake District on...
  13. Yorkshire Blue

    Good news!

    1. Phil Brown doesn't appear to have been appointed - at least yet. 2. We have a train named after us. C2C are great. I've never missed the only goal of a game against the reigning League Cup holders and soon to be League Champions because of train delays when traveling C2C and their trains are...
  14. Congratulations Shrimpers from a Rotherham fan

    We're a shambles of a team ATM but take nothing away from Southend, who thrashed us at home for the second season running. Also well done to the 472 Shrimpers fans there today. Great effort for such a long trip, especially with the motorway delays. Cressy got a great reception from us Millers...
  15. Anyone know why there's lack of info on official club site?

    Hope this is okay for my first thread. It has been quite obvious since the unfortunate play-off defeat that there has been a lack of updated news regarding the first team on the Club's official site. Without the risk of being accused of fishing the last time there were such delays it led to...

    Travel Warning for tonight

    There's a thread in the Pub where I moan about this but thought Id remind people of the issues with the roads. The Sadlers Farm roadworks is causing a 30 minute delay on the A13 at around 6-30pm, although Im sure this eases off after 7pm. This has been having a knock on effect on the A127...

    Re: Prospects - Time to make a stand

    Re: Prospects - Time to make a stand So what with the Echo article the other week, it appears Prospects are again playing hard ball. You can in a way see their point, failed completions etc, but as a local business and not a private site for personal gain. Surely it is in their interest to go...
  20. Breaking News Tonight: Warning

    Just to let you know any Shrimpers going via Chelmsford on the choo-choo MAY experience delays on the train as there is a fatality reported and it's bound to delay services. There is a chance it could affect services on the line out of Liverpool Street, I shall investigate.
