  1. Dagenham in Trouble

    A Dagenham supporting friend of mine has said they are in serious financial difficulty. He normally has his finger on the pulse, so not just a wild rumour. Anybody else heard anything?

    Fixture Difficulty - Analysis

    I have always had it in my head that over a course of the season some teams might end up getting more difficult or easy fixtures depending on when they play certain teams. I decided this season I would keep my eye on this with some ongoing analysis of League 1. Nothing amazingly scientific but...

    Soma Mine disaster

    200+ miners killed in a mile deep coal mining collapse in Turkey. For a town where mining is the job then the deaths and sorrow of the whole community must be overpowering. To be a mile under ground, trapped while the tunnel collapses and the oxygen runs out must be horrific. Cheaply mined coal...

    Selling for Charity - framed, signed Southend Utd 2001/2 Rebus shirt

    Some of you may recall me asking for some help with sigs on this a while back. We didn't get them all but notables there include Kevin Maher, Darryl Flahavan, Leon Cort, Damon Searle and Stuart Thurgood. Someone can probably identify more of them! Plaque at the bottom reads "Authentic...

    I know that I tend to recycle this old chestnut every time we are going to appear on TV. However, things on the web change so quickly that people may be able to share advice on any new, free football sites that are likely to relay the match on Saturday. This is a great help for those who...
  8. Seems we are/were not alone

    Interesting little article in the Sunday Telegraph Business Section today. According to HMRC, in April 2010 they were owed a total of £21.7 million by football clubs, £14.3 million by Premier League clubs alone. It also goes on to say that they are now being far more robust in chasing the debts...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Tranmere Rovers 2-0 Southend United

    No-one bothered? Thought I'd start it as I'm likely first one up this morning - after just an hour and a half's sleep and getting in at 2.40! Huge disappointment, the team that played Friday was just completely absent for the first half, and some of them for the second too. It was like...

    Desperately seeking the 1988 shirt!!

    Firstly, an apology to the mods...not sure where this thread was best located! I am having real difficulty sourcing a retro SUFC shirt. In particular I am trying to find a second-hand 1988/89 season shirt (the 'Firholm' shirt). A couple of websites sell them, but for extortianate prices. Is...

    Chelsea: Live streaming from the bridge

    I am launching this thread to hopefully be be of assistance to myself and others who will not be fortunate enough to be at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and who want to watch the match on their computers rather than listening on BW. As a number of you will know, I'm not exactly a whiz-kid on...

    I'm going to be taking part in a charity bike ride to raise funds for Mute Tourette's Syndrome. A friend of mine has a 6 yr old son that suffers from this and we are raising funds to pay for a year's therapy. Mute Tourette's Syndrome has long been in the shadow of its more 'famous'...

    Bluesworld commentary for Peterborough game

    As a subscriber I went to listen to the match today, only to find that it kept telling me to subscribe, even though I'm already subscribed and the account details confirmed this. Did any other subscribers have difficulty in trying to listen to the match?

    Searching For A Plan B?

    Hesitated about starting a new thread on this but can't find anyone referring to Paul Brush's interview (part 1) on Blues World and couldn't find a suitable thread to tack it onto. He spoke about Gower having to make up his mind up about his future, pretty quickly, when he returns from holiday...

    Home Advantage?

    We are of course at home on Saturday, but does this count as home advantage? Sadly the answer seems to be not if we fall behind. We have only THREE points from home games in which we have fallen behind. That is a disgraceful statistic, considering that we have been losing in over half our home...

    Well, we're a couple of days into the new forum and generally speaking it is now working as it should. Its bound to take a week or two to get used to the new format - anyone who remembers the last messageboard upgrade a couple of years ago will remember the same experience then. However at SZ...
