  2. England

    What a cracking game against the Argies this evening. It had more twists and turns than a roller-coaster! Eddie Jones has been a revelation since taking over our national side. We're looking much stronger than the British Lions at the moment.

    The Blues and Eddie & The Hot Rods

    As Wycombe were rightly in the spotlight yesterday I thought I'd have a look at this great YouTube clip of Southend legends Eddie & The Hot Rods celebrating our Wembley success at the Half Moon Putney prior to a gig. Sums it up nicely :smile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpjvD2qxzhc&sns=em

    Memory Lane FM247: Radios In Motion

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrZyqo-kiZE&nohtml5=False This might resonate a little for anyone who's come back to Southend after a little while away. I was staying in town over the w/e and was at a bit of a loose end between an afternoon curry and seeing a gig at The Railway. I had a...

  8. Minka Kokos

    Hi everyone. Following on from a chat in this forum back in 2014, wondered if anyone had contact details for Minka Kokos, daughter of Yvonne Stag who rode the Wall of Death at the Kursaal. I'm writing an article for the Daily Mail and trying to get in touch with Minka urgently. In the previous...
  9. Your manager of the season .

    Mine is Eddie Howe,bankrolled yes,but his team play a beautiful brand of football with them scoring at will.Next season will be fun watching them taking on bigger clubs and I fancy some of those will be embarrassed by Howe and his merry men.

    Spoty 2013

    Great move by the BBC last night with their new look presenting team of Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan and Eddie Izzard. Clear block-voting in Wales to get Leigh Halfpenny into second place. No Mo Farah or Chris Froome in the top-3. Closest racism?

    Trading places

    Flicking through tv the other day i came across the old Eddie Murphy film Trading Places. Now that got me thinking about how Shrimpers players would get on trading places with Premier stars.... My 1st thought was if Gavin Tomlin traded places with Wayne Rooney ( in my humble opinion one of...

    Tour De France - Mark Cavendish

    Right, I know absolutely nothing about cycling (never even passed my cycling proficiency test at Earls Hall.....) but obviously know of the Tour de France and it being a huge event, and have heard of the likes of Lance Armstrong, Sean Kelly, Eddie Merx etc. I know there are a few of you on here...
