    Plans for Saturday?

    So, we were all expecting a home game on Saturday but that has changed thanks to the international brigade at Oldham Athletic. What are people getting up to instead? With my wife and children away for the weekend, I'm heading down to Silver Jubilee Park to watch Hendon in the FA Trophy. Another...

    National League Play-offs

    I don't know if you have noticed but the play-offs from the National League have changed this year. Instead of four going into the play-offs this year there are six with the following format: Qualifying Round 4th v 7th and 5th v 6th Semi Final 2nd v winners of 4th/7th and 3rd v winners 5th/6th...

    Should 45 minute halves be scrapped

    A proposal to scrap 45-minute halves is to be looked at by football's lawmakers to deter time-wasting. Instead, there could be two periods of 30 minutes with the clock stopped whenever the ball goes out of play. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40311889 There's a poll for you to vote on...

    More of those puzzles

    Here are one I have put together. Don't post the answers, let others have a think. PM me them instead. They are not football related; they might be song titles, science related, all sorts. OK, get a coffee and off we go. 3 C in the F 12 S on a N P C 4 S on a B G -273.15 AZ (No Googlng!) 2 P...

    Question Striker options on bench

    I wonder why recently (at a crucial/critical stage of the season) Frank Nouble has been the option coming off the bench instead of say Fortune, baffled.

    Anyone for the Chat Room Saturday afternoon?

    Yep, why not. We did this for the Morecambe match a couple of years back and it was good fun and much easier to use. Count me in! :thumbsup:
  8. Ref Watch .... Gillingham A

    Saturday's referee is comfortably better than many who have been offered and taken full-time employment as a referee. He is the usually very decent Dean Whitestone from Northampton, in his eleventh season as a Football League referee. He is a referee we have seen a lot of at Roots Hall but not...

    On yer 'ead 'arry!

    Goals such as our two last night at Oxford could be things of the past if this report gains enough support in the game. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-38971750 I personally couldn't imagine the game without head contact to the ball, but I can also see the risks the report is highlighting. A...
  10. Memory Lane 20 years ago today ....

    ...... instead of reflecting on the previous day's point against the bottom team, we were looking back at the previous evening's 3-2 home defeat by Manchester City including Kinkladze and Rosler. Williams (unlike yesterday) and Rammell got a couple of late goals. Crowd was only about 1,500...

    Favourite ever Southend shirt

    My favourite ever Southend shirt, just found one for sale, but it's £75 ! :'( first ever shirt I owned, no clues what happened to mine, wish I still had it...but it wouldn't fit me as I was around 9 or 10 at the time. Seeing this brings back memories of standing in the West stand with my...

  13. Ref Watch .... Gillingham H 1 of 2

    This year sees the advent of SG2 - a further tranche of 18 full-time referees who will referee mainly Championship matches. Saturday's referee must be one of the best of the rest based on previous performances and may well have turned down an offer of full-time refereeing. He is the usually...
  14. Do we get them instead ?!?

    “A Disciplinary Commission has ruled that Bury are to be deducted three points for fielding an ineligible player, Callum Styles, in the Sky Bet League 1 fixture against Southend United on Sunday 8 May 2016. “The Club has accepted that Styles was not registered in accordance with League...

    St. Pauli's manager misses unveiling of new player, but instead of waiting, the club comes up with this sneaky ruse... https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/jun/15/st-pauli-manager-misses-unveiling-signing-man-in-mask-ewald-lienen :stunned:
  16. I have two tickets for the final of Euro 2016

    I have two tickets for the final of Euro 2016, but I didn't realise it will be on the same day as my wedding, so I can't go... If you are interested and want to go instead of me... It's at St Mary's church Prittlewell, and the girl is called Sarah.

    SZ Player of the Season 2015-16

    As mentioned elsewhere, it seems there will be no player of the season presentation at our final home game on Saturday, and it will instead be at the end of season gala dinner. So who gets your vote? For me, it's got to be Jack Payne. The most entertaining player by a mile this season, and has...

    Trip to Accrington anyone?

    I've just noticed that in amongst all the Southern teams in the top 7 in Division 4 is ........... Accrington Stanley in 3rd place! Well done to them. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: They are managing to be above teams like Portsmouth or Luton or Plymouth who have many times the resources...
  19. Tips for Sp to in-play running prices.

    In response to another poster I will post some racing tips for in-play betting. These are likely to drop from their SP whilst the race is being run. I use betfair, though with other trading software as it make it easier to "green up" across the whole field. So here are a few for today. 13:50...

    Easter Monday and nothing much to do?

    We are blessed with no home game today, so what are you doing instead? Probably the high winds will prevent too much stuff outside this morning, so has your loved one got a list of stuff that needs doing? Wind surfing or para gliding might fit the weather.
