    Club Badges - Good and Bad

    Well, it's so quiet isn't it - let's hope things start to develop next week in terms of signings. In the meantime, I've always quite liked our club badge. It relates to Essex, the sea and our position in the world. But I wonder what you think about the badges of other clubs. For me the worse...

    Brown's 'no chance of the automatics' comment

    Was this the turning point of the season just gone ? I remember thinking at the time what a crass comment to make but it seemed to galvanise the squad into going on a fantastic run, growing in self-belief, which ultimately helped develop the mental strength to get us through the play-offs...
  3. Uber/Deliveries/Post

    Was thinking the other day about Uber and how it's changing taxis and stuff. Would an Uber business model be viable for parcel delivery/couriering etc? - Let's say that every city has a couple of depots, and every town has 1. - You get home from work and know you're going to be in for an hour...

    We are looking for a few new football coaches to take on new mini soccer teams at Manor. No experience necessary. Full support given towards F.A. Level 1 coaching badges and beyond. About 1 1/2 hours on a Saturday morning and an hour or so for a match on a Sunday morning required. Over 18's...

    Do we think we are really doing enough to best develop our younger players?

    First off Quite an impressive debate has been raging about whether some of our youngsters in the development squad ( Layne, Brown , Williams) should get a shot at first team action for their development and experience and when. Equally strongly some take the view it is in their best interests...

    If the game had finished at half time today...

    ...we would be saying how well we played. I could totally understand the system switch; we played narrower, with no wingers, because Weston and Coulthirst are not going to win aerial battles. With those two plus Payne and Clifford we have players with quick feet that can switch the ball about...
  7. Help Required!

    Hi All, If you could please read below that would be greatly appreciated! We are looking to design an app, available for all smart phones & tablets, which will allow football fans to keep track of how many football grounds they have visited around the world. The app will offer the...

    Going against popular opinion.

    EVERYBODY (including me) has been crying out for the pace, energy and enthusiasm of youth in the England team. 2012 we looked completely out of ideas and just managed to grind results before losing on penalties to a team that destroyed us..but drew the game. Since yesterday morning all the...
  9. Teaching method research

    Hi all, In preparation for a coursework project which I hope to develop into an online business, I'm looking to conduct research into teachers' use of online resources in preparing lessons. If anybody who works in a school would be willing to distribute a questionnaire to some teachers for me...

    What I like about Phil Brown

    I've just been reading through Phil Brown's interviews and I am impressed with how he conducts himself. PB seems to be a very strong minded and positive person. Throughout his first 6 games in charge he has accepted that he is learning about the team. He hasn't professed to knowing everything...

    Bobby Robson - almost

    Is it true that you’ve twice been approached about the Southend manager’s job? (I remember the Express running the story about 10 years ago!) Bernie Friend, Leigh on Sea Yes, I was, you know. [A long pause]. I’ve been offered the Westend [er, that’s Southend, Sir Bobby] job twice. Now where was...

    Starting already.......

    Well I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by some of our fan base, but listening to the coverage of the game on BBC Essex last night, I couldn't quite believe my ears, when a text was read out stating that Sturrock should "......do us all a favour, and go back to Devon, taking his son with...
  17. Mohsni's spell as a striker...

    I'm going to credit Sturrock with some serious balls in giving Mohsni a run as a striker. I was thinking back to when I first saw him, at Bradford away, he was positionally naive but defended well. The main disappointment was that when attacking corners/free kicks he got into good positions but...
  18. Gary Neville

    Couldn't put it better myself Oliver Kay On Thursday 3rd February 2011, @OliverKayTimes said: A 1,000-word tweet dedicated to Gary Neville, the great overachiever ... There was, it is fair to say, a lively response last night when, in tribute to Gary Neville, I called him "one of world...

    Once upon a time...

    we all used to support Southend. We all had different ideas of who should play and different opinions on players ability but at the end of the day we could all meet up in a pub, on a train or coach or at a match and give our support for the lads in blue. We may not agree with each other, but...

    Bobby Robson (RIP) & Liberia: Football's Legacy of hope

    Saw this two page spread in yesterday's Sunday Mirror (can't find anything more than <this>, and found corresponding article on CAFOD website. It doesn't quite explain where all the shirts came from in this article but they were the ones left at St James' park: Liberia: Football's Legacy of...
