  1. Spurs hospitality package-sold out?

    Saw McScrivens post advertising this yesterday and steamed in and booked up via tottenham. Went to show some mates later in the afternoon and the page has vanished. Doe's this mean we have sold all available places?. Have obviously told the other half i got a ticket for £20 and will have to...

    Tony Blair

    While walking down the street one day, Tony Blair is tragically hit by a truck and killed. His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. "Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official...

    This Seasons Signings

    This post is not made as a knee jerk reaction to the Hull game, Its made 17 games into the season, long enough IMO to assess players on how they have performed. I love Steve Tilson to bits but must say I think the majority of signings he's made over the summer have been poor. He's bought in...

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...

    Friday Humour

    A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey. He orders a drink and while he's drinking the monkey jumps all around the place. The monkey grabs some olives off the bar and eats them, then grabs some sliced limes and eats them, then jumps onto the pool table, grabs one of the billiard balls...
  10. How we can win on Sat

    Just a few thoughts about the game after watching Forest on Monday. They play a 3-5-2 formation at the moment with three big centre backs. I personaly think Wayne Gray and Mark Bentley are key to us competing and winning this game. With the wing back system there is often space on the flanks in...

    Never say...

    Hello folks, Just popped in to congratulate you on the rather cracking run of form that you've been on recently. Can't say that I was expecting it in the slightest (though I suspect that only the most optimistic of Shrimpers would have dreamed you'd be topping the table at this stage!), but...

  16. Surreal ?

    Is it just me that finds all this a tad surreal, talking about promotion and Notts Forest. Talking about the Championship and who we are gonna buy. Not having to go to $%&* holes like Carlisle, Macclesfield and Orient. It's like a dream ...
  17. Leon C

    Just read a good post from Kenny about his memories of the last seven years and it he referred to the loss of Leon Cort and the Constantine fellow. Which was the greater loss? Take your pick. In Constantine we had found our first 20+ scorer for some time and many felt that loss would hurt our...

    "Cele" Spotting

    At Duke last night, a certain Tesfaye Bramble and Kieron Dyer were out and about (I was told Titus was going to be there but had drove down from Newcastle and was shattered). I spoke to Tes, well I had to because everyone else was talking to Dyer. I told him that I thought he played ok at...

    Chav Town

    Prompted by another poster, here it is : "That Chav hasn't originated in Southend comes as a great shock to me. The town has a feature the chavster finds irresistable, a 'seafront'. That this doesn't actually front the sea, but rather the estuary of the moving cesspool that...
