  1. Any of you bored should watch this

    Hi fellow shrimpers, my brother made a film few years ago which features heavily around a southend supporter, a comedy feature film which makes reference to Orient and follows his journey on making it back to getting in his team - there are 4 parts to it and it really is funny - situated in...

    Training ground car park DJs

    Kevin Richardson wanted out at Watford and took to blasting ‘Please Release Me’ by Engelbert Humperdinck from his car stereo when he arrived at the training ground. What songs should Shrimpers past and present play as they arrived to training?

    There is a 'Shop' tab between 'Blogs' and 'Chat' which I have never thought to click until now. When I did, I got this message from vBulletin: Rootshallbloke, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons: Your user account may not have sufficient...

    Hi everyone, I recently wrote an article for www.thesetpieces.com about how much I hate timewasting. Having seen a lot of it by smaller teams over the last few years I hope it might chime with some of you. Most of you will recognise the reference to Timlin dribbling to ball into the corner at...

    Zone Update The Zone Features-Did you know this exists?

    Having a chat with Ken today, one of things that stood out to us was the hundreds of things some members do not realise exist within the forums. It would be great if people added to this thread about features they are aware of so others can have a better experience on here. Ok I will start...

  11. Is it possible to get Blues Player commentary on Android?

    Hi there, I know a lot of people moan about Blues Player commentaries but I must say I have never had a problem with it. Occasionally drops for a few secs, but that is just as likely to be my wifi. My question is about commentaries on Android devices. Has anyone managed to get live commentary...

    Cauley Woodrow

    Features in this month's FourFourTwo with a letter describing him as one to watch and a talent for the future with the writer saying he scored in a 5-1 rout against his team and "was everywhere". Clearly he saw something we didn't, though it's not that difficult to look good in a 5-1 win.

  19. Blues player

    Just wondering if people thought that the Blues Player is worth the £40 ish a year? I won't be able to get to any games probably this year, but would still like to support the club. Basically, what are the best features in your opinion, and would you pay £40 for a years subscription?
