    Rent deposit

    Received a letter from my old landlord saying I wouldn't be receiving any of my previous deposit back, I'm not a bad tenant at all however I knew I would be charged for some minor repairs and redecorating as quite frankly I was too lazy to paint a flat I was leaving, however on this letter, it...

    Question Can Brown emulate Tilson and achieve back to back promotions ?

    Although it seems to me that League 1 is much tougher than a few years back, I for one am beginning to think he can with the squad he is assembling and the potential funds available if DB goes. Thoughts ?
  3. Congratulations Colchester United.

    It would be churlish not to acknowledge Colchester United being awarded The Football League Family Club of the Year. An award to be proud of. Of course it should have read Small family club of the year but lets not begrudge them their one and only success this season. I suppose it must have been...

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/david-conn-inside-sport-blog/2013/feb/21/bradford-capital-one-cup Let's hope Bradford's cup success proves to be an example we can emulate.

    City's Glaring Vie-error

    When Kenny Dalglish ruled the roost at Anfield, Liverpool were the dominant force in English football. He maintained their superiority during his tenure with a very simple transfer philosophy, and it's something that Manchester City would do well to emulate. 'Always be sure to sign better...

    History Will Reward Liverpool

    This week, a friend of mine bound for pastures new bestowed upon me her collection of old football magazines. I can't begin to explain how exciting this is to someone like me. You see, my friend's magazine collection is taller than her and it stretches back through the years to historic...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 5 - SpanishShrimper

    This week, Nick (SpanishShrimper), from Spain answers the questions. I haven't had the time to check his answers, so hope there is nothing too embarrassing etc. that shouldn't be here.... :unsure: 1) How long have you been an exile? A) Well technically, since I left the Southend area...
  10. Teams with 100% play off final records.

    Unless my memory has forgotten anyone, the only side to have played in more than one final and won them both was Blackpool. They beat Orient in 2001 & Yeovil last season. Hopefully we can emulate this feat.
  11. Tilson's obviously not bothered about the cup this year.....?

    From the Official Site: "Southend have never made it past the fifth round and Tilson is hoping his team can emulate this feat"

    Why did we let him go?

    Kightly - we need him!
  13. Caption Competition

    Luke Guttridge, Southend's very own Boris Johnson, attempts to emulate his idol's tackle against Germany.
  14. South Africa v England

    OK, the target is 142, but with Trescothick and Butcher already back in the pavilion it looks like England may at last emulate Australia - and struggle to make a low total. Will England make it 8 in a row, or will barmen across London be celebrating?

    Our strikers

    remember when we had steven clark on form down the wing, his pace scared the hell out of the opposition full backs. he always beats his man (like i said when on form) gets to the by line and crosses in. i remember one time against exeter at home i think, he got to the by line cut in, ran towards...
