    Engine diagnostic/fault codes

    Ahoy, I was out in my motor last night and the engine suddenly went into limp mode with no turbo and the glow plug light started flashing. Restarting the car seems to have resolved the issue and the turbo now kicks in but I would like to get to the bottom of the problem. On VWs this is a...

    It's not his fault that he was brought back to the club ,but it's time to accept that it hasn't worked out and time to go back to Southampton, if he needs a lift I'll drive him there myself !!!

    Why can't we defend set pieces?

    We've now conceeded four goals this season -two each in our last two away matches-all from set pieces and not one goal from open play. So why can't we defend from set plays? According to PB on the OS:- “It’s very disappointing because we’ve given them all the instructions...

Basically her meds are provided by the pharmacy in blister packs, ready sorted into doses but last time...

  12. Shale Gas/Fracking

    Finally the government has done something that might actually encourage growth. There is an abundance of shale gas in the North of England. It has the potential to dramtically reduce energy prices and also reduce carbon emissions since gas power generation emits a lot less carbon than coal. In...

    Barry Fry

    Seems like we could be up against him in Pre Season, as its rumoured he's interested in the available job at The Daggers! I haven't heard anything about it myself, but their board is full of posts about him and it's supposed to have been mentioned on Sky Sports News.

    The Guardian

    Are they asking for a bailout, or is it a good idea? http://order-order.com/2012/09/24/guardian-wants-broadband-poll-tax-bailout/ I don't see why every internet using household has to pay a levy to support print media, particularly as I don't buy newspapers. If The Guardian is unable to manage...

    Car Insurance B*st*rds

    I have a renewal letter from my insurance company for my car insurance. However, one thing that I needed to let them know about was an accident my wife had in April as she's a named driver on my policy. A little old lady drove into the side of my wife's car whilst my wife was stationary. She...

    Faul McCartney

    Now, as we are all very well aware the original Paul McCartney was decapitated in a car crash in November 1966 and replaced by a (vague) lookee-likee, albeit with a different shaped face thanks to M15 intervention. Obviously the clues were all there in Beatles songs, album covers and...

    the current form, the dreadfully dreary football played, financial questions, popularity of Chairman, new stadium taking 27 years and counting and a general bout of recent depression, Southend United is still, without a shadow of a doubt - the greatest football club in the world!! Anyone from...
