    The state of policing

    A number of threads lately have had some serious police related postings as the main issue of the thread. I don't know how to generate a survey on here and IF some one can put one up with relevant questions please do. These are just a suggestion of some questions. Have the police lost control of...
  2. Clean Sheets under SCP

    Heard on Saturday that Oxley kept 16 clean sheets last season - equivalent to 1/3 of our league season. 10 (2/3ish) of those clean sheets were under SCP, which was essentially just the final third of the season. Exciting for next season to think we are twice as likely to keep a clean sheet under...

    Elvis or Dimi ?

    I've been so impresed with Elvis since he broke through with Phil Brown. He's a real SCP kind of player too, fantastic mobility, seems his attitude is good, has real pace and covers his centre backs intelligently. A ball winner that doesnt sell himself, whereas as much as i like Jason Dimi he...

    The New Kit Thread

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad, bad news. Our summer will be spent discussing something else other than the new kit. I am not sure how to break this to you, especially to our ertstwhile friend Mr Stevart, but.... all indications are that next season's kit will be worn when we play Bristol...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-3 Walsall FC

    So what happened there then,back to the old stuff or just a bad day at the office? The run had to end sometime I guess. SCP won't be happy, nor I guess are all the fans, especially those who helped so much to get the game played. Over to you lot.
  6. 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...
  7. Time for a rain-check

    Ok, after 20 games we have now played 20, won 7, drawn 7 and lost 6 and sit in 9th place. This time last year we had played 20, won 7, drawn 7 and lost 6 and were 10th in the table. At this point in 2015/16 we were 8th, as we were in the promotion season of 2014/15. Conclusion? We have it all...

    No Lose November

    Well, it's finally here and this year our illustrious opponents are :- Oldham Athletic (Home) Portsmouth (Away) MK Dons (Away) Oxford United (Home) Now, call me optimistic, but I think we can pull it off for yet another year! .. Especially with the return of fans favourite, Michael Turner. By...
  9. Lift up your top Ladies, and show us your Bra. Said the stewards.

    So Grimsby were playing at Stevenage in August. Some Stevenage stewards were asking the Grimsby Ladies and young Ladies to lift up or open their tops to show if pyrotechnics were hidden in their Bra's. This all sounds a bit perverted by the stewards as I'm sure they wouldn't have been instructed...

    East/North Bank Gate

    Slightly off topic I know but I just wondered what everyone's view is regarding the East/North Bank gate being open after each game? Those in the West probably aren't aware but after pretty much every game it's open and by the time you leave the East stand you have no option but to join and...

    Question The New Youth Players

    Afternoon, Thanks to Manor15 for updating the squad contracts, and it's great to see the new youth team players getting their first deals. Let's hope they make it through to a longer term deal before long. However, I'm not sure where each of them actually play? Can someone in the know give a...
  12. iFollow streaming service for next season

    I've been having a quick look at the iFollow service, so this may be of interest to overseas fans, especially those based in Ireland. When the new service offering, for overseas supporters, live streaming of all league games next season was announced, I then went from ecstasy to agony within a...

    Question for the women in your lives

    Here's one to tickle your fancy.....having lunch yesterday with my baby group friends (the kids are now all 23!), I was greeted with a question....it wasn't "how was your holiday?", after not having seen them for three weeks, no, it was "how do you put your bra on?" Now, the upshot of this was...

    Is Ferdinand the key to success next season?

    The back page of the Echo today has an article on PB having two days of talks with Anton in a bid to keep him at Southend. It seems PB knows there are other clubs monitoring the situation as Anton would be available on a free. Ferdinand is seen as an important player by the club and his...
  15. Travel to Roots Hall Monday

    PC Keith asked me to make you all aware that Bank Holiday Monday sees the unofficial Shakedown hit town, and with it being Bank Holiday the traffic will be horrendous -- especially if the weather is good. Kent Elms corner will be very busy for the next few months so please allow tons of time if...

    Time for a few of us to stick our hands up?

    Quoted from Rob 1920 in the match ratings thread. Sorry I'm not good at the quote copy into new thread thing "Its not just financial backing, he backs his managers & gives them time to sort things out when it appears to all be going wrong. I know the Tilly thing will divide people but he also...

    Match of the Day - Chelsea

    I don't normally watch MotD but it was on BBC1 this morning and I watched a bit. The match that really caught my eye was Chelsea v Everton. I have no love for Chelsea at all, but from the highlights shown they were absolutely awesome, Hazzard and Costa especially. When players are in that sort...
  19. QPR the four year plan.

    If you haven't seen this programme, then you really should. Sky channel 117, London Live. It is being repeated on Sunday at 10:00 so set your sky+. It was a few years ago but follows the season when they had 5 mangers, eventually ending up with Neil Warnock and were promoted as champions the...
