  1. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    Stan Collymore Evening Thursday 30 November

    Hi, if anyone has a spare ticket going for this could they please let me know as I'd like to go along (the event, and the one on 25 Jan I believ, is sold out). I have a special reason for wanting to go as I want to ask Stan a favour - I will be giving all royalties next month re my Roots To The...

    Adam King

    Half an hour into today's match Adam decided to tweet about how many followers he has gained/lost this week. I replied saying I am glad that's more important to you than watching your teammates. Shock horror he has since deleted the tweet. Personally I think his attitude stinks and we should...

    Spoof news site 'becomes official' after Facebook and Twitter success

    A spoof news website has been recognised as an "official media outlet" by a council after it gained thousands of followers on social media. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-35612405 Stand by for more exclusives on Southend United probably.

    British Lions series win

    So the news and Sports channels are going into meltdown as they always do after any kind of tub-thumping victory. As an only occasional fan of egg running, I'm all over the kudos and looking around me for any Australians to rub it in with, but it does all seem a little over-the-top. To any of...
  5. Need a few Twitter followers!

    Need a few of you tweeters out there to follow my new blog's twitter at: https://twitter.com/TheLowerLeagues will follow you back! Need to get a solid base of followers to start of with so it would be much appreciated!
  6. Twitter

    So who's got it? I jumped on the bandwagon today. I'm still a bit confused about how I should go about using it. Is it really that addictive? Anyway, I need some followers to make me look good! Follow me if you have it ... @Dave_Feakins :thumbsup:

    Hi guy`s ! I have been exiled in cornwall for the last 26 years, although i now only get to see one or two matches a season. I still have strong Essex contacts who are blues followers, so i get plenty of info and feedback on whats rumoured to be going on around the club. Do you guy`s think...

    Something for separated or divorced Dads maybe? Or just to laugh/sympathise?

    After over 4 years of separation my divorce finally came through just before Christmas. Everything is now sorted and I can move on. However, something I find quite cathartic is writing... so I have penned a blog. I intend to update every 3/4 weeks and will share some gems from the...

    Strange Twitter followers

    I recently started following Essex Police.@EssexPoliceUK They have now started following me which I found a little odd. Is anyone else being followed by the law or any of the secret services?

    Twitter followers...do you follow anybody you don't like and why???

    Following on from the Glasgow Shrimper thread in the main forum, and somebody mentioning the fact of why do people follow him if they don't agree or like his tweet's, I got stuck in a deep trance for all of five minutes at the desk, trying to understand why we follow people we don't like. The...
  11. Sturrock to Plymouth or any Scottish club who sacks a manager

    Apparently it was Mr Brent , the man trying to buy Plymouth, who instructed Peter Ridsdale to sack Peter Reid. This I was told by a relative who lives in Devon. Now just been on the footie rumours site and there is a posting of this happening and have assurances this wasn't written by my...

    Stick With Rafa

    (For a different paper this time, hence the shorter word count) Is the FA Cup important again? It's the only explanation for the sudden turnaround at Anfield. Like a battered wife, the Liverpool fans have taken one beating too many and they're rising up, teeth bared, against Rafa Benitez...

    The Uncomfortable Definition of an Infidel....

    Received this on an e-mail today..................not the usual "pass it on to everyone in your contacts" type of e-mail. The Uncomfortable Definition of an Infidel.... Allah or Jesus Christ? Islam is the fastest growing religion in the UK . Last month I attended my annual training...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    When David Koresh, self-proclaimed messiah and leader of the Branch Davidian cult, was the exact same age as you, he led his 120 followers in a shootout with U.S. federal agents outside Waco, Texas. Koresh was to be arrested for illegal possesssion of firearms when the agents raided his...

    The Blue Voice - Some Facts

    Right, first of all many thanks for all the bitchy comments, to say I'm a little ****ed off right now is an understatement. All these negative statements regarding TBV I take as a personal insult, so If anyone else wants a pop please do so via PM. Now for the facts. The Blue Voice is not an...

    The fbm report - Millwall

    Folks, As I'm not quite sure what time I'll get back tonight in order to post this on the front page, it is not fair to deny fbm his readership - or to deny you his pearls of wisdom - so here is the fbm report for the Millwall game, which will hopefully go up on the front page tonight. * * * *...
