  1. German Terrorism

    I thought I would start this thread following Rigsby's genuine post to move away from the Nice one. (it's not political as such.. hence me posting it here.. although mods, please feel free to move it, if the responses move that way?) Anyway it seem's to me, that the German government / security...

    Breaking News Brown in England set up? If so, could it be done part time?

    So it's reported today that Big Sam is considering PB for a role in the England set up and obviously it's a role PB would love. If he is involved, would he be able to do that on a part time basis? Would the FA allow him to do it part time? Personally, I think he probably could, especially...
  3. How are starting odds created?

    Been talking at work a fair amount about betting, especially around Brexit. So odds work out at around 75% chance of remain and 29% chance of Brexit - now these add up to >100%, which I think is called overrounding and is effectively the bookies way of making a profit. Understand that odds...
  4. Next Season

    As it seems like the players have decided it's now the end of the season, I think we should discuss next season a bit. What are your predictions? To be honest, unless we make a handful of class signings, I can't see us doing too well - especially with 'big' teams coming up into league 1. My...
  5. Concord Rangers This Weekend

    Hi All, My friend sent me this poster below:, so I thought it would be only decent of me to share it with you, especially any fans not making the long journey to Wigan on Saturday, also as well as any parents wanting to take their kids out for a free footballing day over the weekend (well as...

  7. What teams to go to when Southend aren't on

    Just wondering, what teams do we go to/what teams do we recommend to got to-especially in lower on non-leagues - when Southend aren't on (or in mid-week)? Thinking of going with a mate to one this week but not really sure what team is the best....

    A pub and restaurant at Garon Park?

    The Echo is carrying an article today revealing that a brewery chain is in Advanced talks with Southend Council to build a new pub and restaurant on the site which is currently used for overflow parking for Kids Kingdom. The location is a bit intriguing, especially as the old Rusty Bucket gave...

    Best Pot Noodle flavour.

    For me it has to be Chow Mein although I haven't tried some of the newer flavours. I am a big fan of instant noodles, especially the cheap ones from Chinese Supermarkets where you have to guess the flavour from the picture on the front and those ones that come in flying saucer shape plastic bowls.

    Dream on?............

    Sadly.................or rather happily, there is no graph this year, to see how we were doing in comparison to last season. So, as I'm still in the recovery room from my weekend, working in Toulouse, I thought I'd amuse myself by checking back on what has been required, in previous seasons, to...

    Spain v England

    2-0 to Spain now and no disgrace in either goal, especially the first one. Not over yet but I think England have given it a good go tonight. Got to say though Spain are quality.

    Gillingham away - tickets

    A little way away I appreciate, but just bought my tickets for Gills away. According to the programme Saturday a junior goes free with two paying adults, yet on line it's just charged me £5 for my son despite there being two adults. To be honest not to bothered as £20 for him and me is pretty...
  17. Who should be the next James Bond?

    So it sounds like Daniel Craig isn't going to be Bond any more. Who would you like to see be the next Bond? Damian Lewis would be good. Or Richard Armitage. This article is great, especially the Tom Hardy bit...

    iPad Advice

    I'm looking at buying an iPad to use instead of my phone at home (bigger!) and to take on holiday and maybe read books on it. I have an iPhone & iPod, so this seems natural and sensible keep it in the family, especially backing up my music. I will only use with WiFi, so a sim card is...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Coventry City vs Southend United

    Well at least we scored. Sounds like a cracking game and a draw is a decent result especially with yet another penalty save from Bentley.
