    I'm not sure whether: this is breaking news It belongs in Chit Chat It has any bearing on anything any more But....................... There's a whopping great SOLD sign on the front of Prospects College.

    Midi blog

    I see the blog section appears just to deal with football, so I've stuck mine here. Don't know whether it will interest anyone but it was good therapy, unwinding after an exhausting weekend. MIDI BLOG Today is one of the few days I can sit in front of the computer with absolutely no guilt...
  3. Where is Hunt

    Went to watch our latest away day fiasco and the over riding impression I got is we need a clever, experienced player to play up front alongside Barnett. I watched Noel Hunt a few times and a fit again Hunt, in my opinion would make an awesome partner for Barnett which made me think. WHERE IS...
  4. Doping

    The Sunday Times are going front page with a doping scandal story that implicates PL stars, tennis players, boxers, crickers and cyclists. https://twitter.com/richard_conway/status/716371675286282241 It doesn't sound good, but also the Doctor involved doesn't have the cleanest of records himself.

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Gillingham

    I know it's early to start this up, but I'm guessing a big crowd is expected. Any word on the street as to whether there will be a better police presence in the ground, this time? On the playing front, I can't see any changes to the side after yesterday.
  6. Travelzone v Coventry fans game

    Pre-Match Thread Peterborough United vs Southend United

    It's early but will be interesting to see what people think is needed. Another lot of changes or a similar line-up again? I'd be tempted to go: Bentley, White/O'Neill, Bolger, Barrett, Coker/White, Worrall, Leonard, Deegan, Timlin, McLaughlin, Barnett Shore up the midfield and try to stop us...

    Latest Rumours Blues miss out on Harry Forrester

    According to Chris Phillips. Young winger who was at Doncaster and now signed for Rangers for an undisclosed fee. Can't believe that we were ever very close, given that he was quite public in wanting to play for Mark Warburton again (who he played for at Brentford and Watford). Few...

    Bring Back 4 4 2

    Bring Back 4 4 2 before its to late. 1 up front at homes is no good. Playing some Diamond in the middle that's not working. 442 With 2 the 2 full backs bombing on. Why are we sitting back. We are so much better attacking team full on.:omg: We had this last year at some point must revert back...

    Another slight dampener on the day

    I fully appreciate the excitement of the mighty shrimpers scoring and I used to rush down the front of the stand as a kid (and sometimes still do :thumbsup:), but why did a couple of lads run onto the pitch yesterday and risk banning orders ? Surely, just stay behind the barrier and let the...

    Col Ewe Boxing Day Conductor Required - Applications Please

    OK, I have asked Col Ewe to provide a podium at the front of the away end on Boxing Day. Just need someone to stand on it and lead the chants. Applications please with details as to why you think you will be the best for that role. I am looking for something like this...

    our stewards

    Our stewards are quite possibly the worst I have witnessed in the 50 away league grounds I have visited. Only we could escort Millwall fans out the ground for death threats and allow them back in! - they threw coins at the W block - they ripped the advertising off of the front of the north...

    Syria air strikes

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34950778 Think this topic now deserves its own dedicated thread. Always been impressed by Mark Rylance -either on the stage or in front of the cameras. Good video here on which countries are actually bombing in Syria already.Must be getting fairly crowded in Syrian...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Wigan Athletic

    With the news that Wozza is "out" then the team that starts will have to be adapted. I expect PB not to change the GK or defenders. up front, no changes either. If Westie, Mac or Tims recover they will go in the side; if not then Pig to start (Wozza's place).

  18. Five things the sheffield star learned on saturday

    No 4 ; Jack inflicted Payne On the opposition front, Southend have a star on their hands in Jack Payne. Just turned 21 last month, the midfielder was the star of the show in the first half with an almost perfect midfield display. He was hard-working, skillful, showed terrific passing, scored...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Burton Albion 1-0 Southend United

    Unlucky first away defeat against top of the table, back to reality after our run of good form. Played in front of under 3,000. Can't help but feel we need more depth up front, no motivation for Pig/Mooney knowing that Hunt is injured and the only other option is a striker from the reserves...
