  1. Frustration v realistic expectation

    Hi, Yesterday was pretty bad...there’s no glossing over that. However overall our home form has been pretty solid if not spectacular. Our problem is our away form, which’s is strange as we’ve performed well away in recent seasons. People are getting wound up and are expecting more. I...

    Have all the new signings disrupted the team too much?

    In listening to PS last nite he again stated that he was looking to bring in maybe 2 or 3 new players, particularly offensive minded players. We all looked at each other and thought but where will they fit in, is there enough room on the programme cover to list them? Then we got thinking about...

    Michael Kightly

    I pulled up at Tesco's Pitsea for some fuel and none other than Michael Kightly parked beside me to get some fuel as well. He said hello to me because he must have noticed my SUFC car sticker. I then had a chat with him while we both filled our cars up. I asked him if he had another club...

    Gay men kicked out of boozer

    I was listening to this homo moaning on Radio 5 this morning: Gay couple 'removed from Soho pub for kissing' I missed the start of his interview with Dame Nicky Campbell and assumed that he was talking about being ejected from a pub for copping off with some sort, which seemed to be an over...

    Bath City 0 Exeter City 4 (Logan 8, Dunne 68, Watson 81, 87) Bath City were well beaten by an impressive Exeter City outfit at Twerton Park tonight.

    I can't be the only one that is getting royally ****ed off with these ******s who think they have the right to down tools the moment something happens that hasn't met their approval. My year is being ****ed up by these ***** who can't accept that they are only ****ing workers and not the...
  8. Ref Watch Swindon

    Saturday's game sees the appointment of, in my opinion, a very decent referee in Mick Russell, from St Albans. Last season for him was severely disrupted by injuries but he has done plenty of matches already this season. A very steady official, this will be his 7th Southend match and his third...

    Our Friday Night Advantage

    A bit like Marmite, whether you love or hate them tonight sees the first of our big Friday Night Matches at the Hall. As we now have three of these on the bounce, I think we should try to use them to our advantage. Lets face it our 3 next home matches are all massive and should not be lacking...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Pietersen gone?

    Reports are suggesting Pieterson has stepped down as captain following his row with Peter Moores. This seems to have been prompted by reports both were to be sacked. With the ashes coming up this year I find it a shame as I wouldnt really want our best batter disrupted or unhappy with his...

    David Blaine Risks Death Once Again

    David Blaine is trying to get himself hurt once again for the pleasure of the crowds. The bonkers stuntman and showman started his 60-hour ordeal hanged upside down over New York's Central Park. Although it may not seem much compared with his previous stunts, it may well be the hardest one ever...
