    Maidstone v Macclesfield

    Maidstone v Macclesfield Went to this game on Saturday with one of my staff. Nice stadium, good clubhouse, decent support. Three ex-shrimpers in the squads: Macclesfield: Jack Sampson - well he's found his level. Won every header, got stuck in, but rubbish on the ground, can't control the ball...
  4. Player loyalty

    Nice to see Tommo signing for another year, club stood by him through his injury last year and he has repaid that faith. With Bentley and Payne they have been offered contracts but turned them down, Bentley has given us 2 years and probably deserves a chance at higher level but im disappointed...

    The World is Flat

    Watched The Martian today and loved it, read the book which was a bit meh but the film far more entertaining. That led me to have a look at NASA's facebook page and all fascinating stuff about what they are doing to get to Mars. What I also found was bewildering though. There are a lot of...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Burton 3/5/14

    What could be the first of 2 or 3 games against Burton over the coming weeks. Will Brown rest players or go for 5th place. He has said he doesnt care who we play but wants to get the highest finish possible. Seemed undecided on Talksport earlier, but was that just keeping his cards close to...
  9. Its come to my attention that on this forum...

    Even if you've gone to over 500 southend games, you are not allowed a separate view. And if you say something that everyone without a braincell doesnt like i get negative rep points. Keep them coming you sturrock lovers

    Ripping DVDs

    Ahoy. Can anyone recommend decent free DVD ripping software for PC. My new laptop doesnt have a DVD drive so I plan to rip to a removable hard drive and transfer. What is the best file format to rip to. It would be good if I could maintain the menu etc. Cheers.

    England for the English ?

    Not a BNP thread this one... The new rules state that a player who is resident in a nation for X amount of year (I believe 5) can play for that nation as long as they havent played for another. Therefore the likes of Arteta and Almunia have been touted for England in the past and now Januzaj...

    First targets listed!!

    I see that CP has just tweeted that he has seen the list of targets PB is chasing. Doesnt say who at this stage but says that there are some interesting names on it. Guessing the names might be leaked over next few days by someone.
  14. Idiot alert!

    So Emma Way knocks a cyclist of his bike, doesn't stop to help, but goes on Twitter to boast about it. http://ipayroadtax.com/no-such-thing-as-road-tax/i-knocked-a-cyclist-off-his-bike-i-have-right-of-way-he-doesnt-even-pay-road-tax/ Doh!
  15. Everyone Calm Down

    Paul Sturrock was sacked because he failed to deliver this season. We wanted and demanded promotion. He failed to achieve the objective by quite some way. Some of the results have been absolutely shocking. But he got us to the JPT Final, I can hear you saying. So what? He got us to a final of a...
  16. Question Sturrock or who????

    So, loads of you are calling for Sturrocks head, but, seriously, who would you want to see come in and take over? We have no war chest, the players get paid late so motivating is a constant problem, Barker admits the boys are worried about off field issues, they have families & mortgages too &...

    Home + away ... Different managers ?

    First off , I like Paul Sturrock , admire greatly what he has achieved & his managerial skills away from home are absolutley second to none. His style of filling midfield, keeping it tight + hitting teams on the break works perfectly away. However its becoming painfully clear when we are at...

    International Driving Permit - Florida

    Off to Florida soon and had an email from the villa owner saying I had to get an International Driving Permit as its a new law introduced on the 1st Jan 2013 but hardly publicised. Never heard of it and checked RAC and Post Office but both say recommended only. However the AA site shows : R –...
