    A goal poacher in January

    Just a thought, but again last night highlighted our lack of a goal scoring threat or more like a poacher. We again played some decent football and again Cox and Ranger linked up well as did Wordsworth and the midfield. But at the moment very much like Walsall and Swindon, both games could have...

    Theresa May

    Blimey she's ruthless. Hunt, Gove, Osbourne, Morgan, Whittingdale, all gone. New posts created for Brexit, including Davis in charge of Brexit (who has always been anti-EU), and the disgraced Liam Fox as new international trade minister. Oh and BoJo, which is very clever for May. In essence...

    Fifa 2

    So Fifa award tv rights for the 2026 world cup to Fox without putting it out to tender. Would this be a deal so Fox stop complaining about the Qatar winter world cup. Africa also agree to pit back their tournament until June which is the start of their monsoon soon. Should be worth watching.
  6. Stubborn Phil throwing it away!

    Another defeat yet for whatever reason Phil will not change it and it's now become ridiculous . 2 months ago we looked capable of securing an auto spot but that has long since gone and now we are in grave danger of being mid table as the pack hunt us down. Game after game slips by whilst Phil...

    Breaking News Southend v Hull television coverage...

    Just noticed on a Hull forum that whilst ITV and Sky may have ignored us, it appears that our game will be live on US TV. For those exiles wanting to watch a stream, it is being aired on FOX Soccer Plus.
  9. Mrs Baylock's Poetry Corner - Generally Speaking

    Hello Shrimpers new & old - after the lamentable defeat yesterday it seemed to me that we were lacking that most sturdy & combatable elements of a successful team - Ie a midfield general (& a left back/winger & all action CB). Here is my poetry plea to the all-mighty Ron to sort this out. We...

    Academy Schools

    Does anyone on here have some knowledge on Academy school's? I ask because in a certain Academies case I find the whole set-up a bit worrying. In question for me is The Basildon Academies. I have a daughter at the lower site since September 2011 and my dealings with it have led me to go as far...
  12. Online stream for JPT match

    Cannot believe that Fox Sports (Aus version of Sky Sports) isn't showing the first match vs Leyton Orient, even though Sky is broadcasting it Hopefully someone can hook us up with an online stream? Cmon you Shrimpers!

    Freddy's strike partner

    It's been briefly discussed in another thread but I thought this deserved a discussion of it's own. So, who is best suited to play alongside Freddy? I see Harris and Benyon too similar to Freddy as the 'fox in the box' style forward. In my opinion there are 2 options. 1. Bilel Mohsni -...

    I am truly fed up now..although I have had to endure the season of Hoofball so far we sit in 3rd place.this is a joke. Last year I was content that we were **** and going nowhere with some old bloke as a manager..now he tries to move the goalposts to fox me. How dare he sign new players early...

    Curb returned to HBO last night for its eighth season. Looking forward to getting home tonight and firing up eztv for the download. Has anyone else seen the preview where Larry accuses Michael J Fox of using his Parkinson's as an excuse for bumping into him? Priceless...

Anyway, in case anyone has ever enjoyed pulling out the toothy critter called pike, we have some great nights talking about this very subject once a month. You don't need to be a P.A.C. member to attend...
  17. "Michael Vick Should've Been Executed"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEsY-wnc4yI&feature=player_embedded Quite unbelievable, although perhaps not when it's being broadcast on Fox as a stick to beat Obama with.

  20. help needed

    I am trying to track down fellow fans of the shrimpers, who started going to see southend towards the end of the 60s and early 70s, to try and get up a reunion of those of us that were there in the early days, before any bandwagon came along(was that a gypsy bandwagon??) I know there is myself...
