    Kevin Mahers. One a former Southend captain, the other a film critic for The Times. I'm sure we've done this before but what the hell....more Southend players who share their names with famous(ish) people from other walks of life. Go!

    Biggest load of drivel I've ever heard

    Not sure how they got my details, but some loons have sent me an email suggesting I sign a petition to protest about there being no women (other than HM The Queen) on British bank notes.

    I have just finished reading The Day of the Triffids for the umptenth time and it got me wondering. If civilisation as we know it came to an end how would those left survive and due to the technical world we have been brought up in, would that leave us even more worse off. Let me explain. That...
