    Lost Camera

    Hi all, Apologies if this isn't the correct place for this post but unfortunately after attending the match on Monday I seem to have lost my Canon compact camera. I sit in East Reds. Did anyone come across it who sits in the East? Message me for further details if you have. Thanks!
  2. The Big Dady


    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...
  3. The season so far

    We are currently going ok with the whiff of a PO on offer...but jeez it's been fun and games so far. Captain Barratt was the man but binned in mysterious circumstances Nile Ranger was also the man but in court was revealed as a crook then further revelations saw him suspended. Ken the...

  5. Clumsy or sinister ?

    Why do terrorists always leave their documents at the crime scene ?? 9/11 Everything was obliterated,yet a pristine passport was found. United 93 ....nothing remained at the crash site apart from the red bandana. Stade de France suicide bomber's passport was by his body. Lorry attack in France...
  6. Southgate gets 4 year's hmmm.

    The FA will not learn ! Surely the sensible thing was to give GS 2 year deal with the option of a further period. Imagine if England in Russia are yet another major embarrassment,what then pay him off and start again. Giving big Sam a cool million quid was mad,just think how many children's...

    Trust AGM & Adam Barrett Q&A

    Best attended AGM in years, no doubt due to the guest speaker last night. There were a few Zoners there. Nothing controversial in the business part of the meeting though there was discussion about charging non members to come into the Shrimpers on matchdays and providing a matchday "village"...
  9. Meaningless Stat

    What is it with this obsession by the media of a manager's "win percentage"? Don't they realise that this figure only shows part of the story. An example (if indeed we should need one):- Manager A. 20 games as manager, Won 10 Lost 10. Win % 50%. Manager B. 20 games as manager, Won 8 Drawn 8...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Chesterfield

    With all the frustration and unhappiness around this place, I thought it might work to get the next match thread up and running. Assuming we all had a clean slate and drew a line under old systems, past results and so on and look to the future, it'll be interesting to pick a side for Saturday...

    Contracted Players in Squad

    As it stands we have just 8 players signed to the club for next season with options on a further two. PB had better get talking soon to those he wants to keep around the place. We have two keepers no centre backs two full backs two wingers one young attacking centre mid a striker who hasn't set...
  13. Are you sure you want to go there?

    It appears that my computer is trying to protect me from further annoyance or suicidal thoughts. When I clicked onto buying tickets on-line from the club website the following message flashed up: :unsure: Warning: Trouble ahead Whoa!Are you sure you want to go there...

    If you could have any teams ground as our own...

    With Fossetts seemingly further away than ever it got me wondering about all of the other great stadiums that have been built for other teams. Personally really like Rotherhams stadium design. I'd like to see something similar in blue and white with maybe a slightly bigger size.

    Lloyds cuts a further 3,000 jobs and doubles branch closure plan

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36911896 Anyone caught up in the fall-out of this or Lloyds earlier closures? There appear to be a variety of reasons for these latest cuts so it would be unfair to lay it at the door of one thing, but I do wonder what those customers that don't use on-line...
  16. Should British Police be armed.

    With news that German police have shot dead an axe wielding Afghani, who attacked people on a train, coming so quickly after the murders in Nice. Is it time we had more armed police in Britain. By all accounts had the lorry in Nice managed to continue a bit further down the road he would have...

    HDMI cables and other electrical leads - I've got the arseache

    I've had been recently commissioned by the Goddess to move our television in the lounge to a more central position on a wall a fair bit further away from the existing cable entry points. This has required longer Fig 8 power cables, longer internet patch cables and most importantly for me, a...

    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...
  19. Bentleys performance yesterday.

    Here's a quick write up I did on Bentley's performance yesterday. https://thisonesakeeperblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/16/713/ Although he has not necessarily been at his best for the whole season I still believe without some of his performances we could be further down the table than we are...

    Memory Lane FM247: Radios In Motion

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrZyqo-kiZE&nohtml5=False This might resonate a little for anyone who's come back to Southend after a little while away. I was staying in town over the w/e and was at a bit of a loose end between an afternoon curry and seeing a gig at The Railway. I had a...
