    Things you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask

    I'll start having just landed back from a business trip to Tokyo. When you are getting off the plane and the hostesses say bye (usually insincerely) how are you supposed to react? Why do inflammable and flammable have the same meaning (I actually googled the answer so I am now same rather than...

    Muhammad Ali: Boxing legend dies aged 74

    Absolutely tragic news, but no real surprise as Parkinson's Disease was bound to complicate any illnesses he got eventually. A legend for me and he will be truly missed. Rest in peace Muhammad. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16011175

    Shrimpers Trust

    This is not a trust bashing thread by any means because the work done that many of you don't see is nothing short of superb, however with rumours being spouted that Sainsburys may be pulling out and absolute silence from the club should the Trust not be taking a lead when conversing with the...
  7. A few questions about Jakub Sokolik

    Hi, Yeovil Town fan here (in peace!). As you probably know, we recently signed Jakub Sokolik and I was hoping there would be a helpful Southend fan who would answer a few questions about him for our blog :-) I'll post the questions here, but I only need one person to answer the questions. Thanks...

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...

  12. Was it a good things for sufc we did not make the play offs?

    Brown came in having 7 games to look at the team we had this season and highlight the problems. And there are many, as the team have been in relegation form for months now.

Someone produces a spreadsheet showing the level of debt for RM associated businesses and all of a sudden the doom merchants have nigh on convinced me the sky is falling in. The reality...

    Sturrock the tactical genius

    I turned up at Underhill last nite with a nervous gut feeling. Why, well because ive supported Blues for 32 years and we have turned up at the likes of Barnet before expecting to win and failed to deliver. In saying that i always felt that the three points would be ours. Much like last season...
