    Random word links in posts

    Guys, I mentioned this within a thread but just in case none of you have seen it, I wondered what is going on with the fact that some random words are appearing as if they are linkys (I never have worked out how to do them) and when you hover over them, they link to "text enhance" adverts. Take...

    Memory Lane Ernie Watkins

    Now I admit I'm no authority on SUFC but even this passed me by. Ernie Watkins' first 2 games in 1925 produced 5 goals (!) 4 games goal-less then 6 in 4 games. Even so, 11 in 10 games. Then came a "breach of club rules" in December 1925 and he was suspended along with another player...

    Bosman List & Others Available

    Thought it would be good to have one place that lists all of the players we've noticed are either released or otherwise available (transfer listed or been told they can find another club). I won't have time to constantly update this so it would be great if when the mods are on, if you see this...

    Damaged Wing Mirror

    Some **** (a neighbour actually) ending up damaging my wing mirror on my Focus last week. So I now need a replacement. Well, only a few bits of it to be honest. The mirror glass itself needs replacing, along with the black surround and the indicator light cover. The actual shell is fine. It...

  10. Ref Watch ...... TV Ref Crawley

    Tonight's referee is Neil Swarbrick from Preston. A very experienced official who, at the start of this season, joined the Select Group of Premiership referees. He is being eased in gently with just 8 Premiership games so far, virtually all of them fairly low key. He is making his Roots Hall...
  11. Just a quick hello

    Joined the board as I'm interested in how the Blues are doing, and reading various opions of the supporters. Left Southend about 30 years ago and lived in Kent since. Been back to Roots Hall a few times over the years, and away games at Gillingham and Wycombe (when I used work there), plus had...
