    Best Spine???

    As a bit of end of season discussion, who do you guys think would be our best spine, who have actually played together? For avoidance of confusion, by spine I mean Goalkeeper, Central Defender, Central Mid & Centre Forward/Striker.

    Catchment and support

    Sorry if this has been posted before but i chanced across a map of catchment areas by club, which shows some interesting stats, for example we have (according to this report) a larger catchment than Manure, Wham and Chelsea. 600k potential plus fans on our doorstep... where were they last...

    TONIGHT - Charlton v Crawley NOT v Crewe

    A C*ck up on my part, on No. 1 fixtures the first on the list should be Charlton v Crawley NOT v Crewe. The majority so far have put a Charlton win which seems most likely so I will leave this so you can: Amend your prediction any time to to kick-off Leave as is/fail to see this post, then...

    I would appreciate your feedback on a couple of points please: For the last set of fixtures I thought by spreading the fixtures over two days it would make it more exciting but in reality it lead to confusion and tactical predicting , do you think I should avoid this if possible? Reminders-...

    Southend United so far - I'm confused.

    Although it is early days there are the glimmerings of consistency and a belief from the players that they are in FL1 because they deserve to be. The football so far has reflected last season's 'hard to beat' attitude together with a bit more quality added when all of our newbies are fit and...

    IMPORTANT Easter Mondays fixtures

    For Mondays Predictions there was "Typo" when I posted York v Bury and I put "Tork" v Bury, as a result there has been some confusion if it was York or Torquay. If you have already predicted please check and feel free to amend if you wish. Sorry for the confusion DoDtS

    Care Providers in Essex

    Hi folks, not sure if anyone else on here is a carer and has a parent that has care provided for them by ECC. Had a run-in with my mum's care providers, Carewatch, today over her medication. Basically her meds are provided by the pharmacy in blister packs, ready sorted into doses but last time...
  9. Pat on back for Ticket Office

    After all the flak the Ticket Office have had on here recently I thought it was only fair to give them a pat on the back for being proactive today. This morning I received a phone call from the ticket office from a very polite and chatty young lady, she sounded young anyway :winking:, called...

    Question Information sought

    What's going on for Wednesday night, is the North Bank open for us? Asking this as I'm sure the North Bank will only be open for Crewe am I right? If so what are the ticket prices does anyone know? Actually to avoid any confusion, where will the atmosphere be? Hopefully everywhere ;) But you...

    Google Fusion Tables

    Anyone used Google Fusion tables? I have over 1000 shops with names and addresses that I would like plotting on a google map. Is this easy to do? Looks bloody quantum physics to me!

    The not sure what to call it thread

    So, yesterdays game wasn't good. We all know that, I have a question though......Serious question, do our players ever visit shrimperzone? Because if they ever do then every single player on our team will be playing with there head down in low confidence, all I hear is slagging off, moan moan...

    The A13 from Tarpots to Kiln Road

    Blimey, I'm on a roll with rants atm! Anyone been up or down Bread and Cheese in the last few days? What a joke! There's bits of bus lanes being put in on different sides of the road, so there's a bus lane going west, down the hill but at the lights there's a bus lane on the Southend bound side...

    Aussie Rules

    Went to my first ever AFL (Brisbane v St Kilda) game on Thursday night. Man, that's one wierd sport - spent pretty much the whole match in a state of confusion. However the bar was open, I'd got free tickets and it was the start of a 5 day weekend so it wasn't all bad.
  15. AGM minutes

    Uncle Albert, boots shining like a cyclists tail light,strode into the foyer of the Palace Hotel. As he did so a smartly dressed youngman hesitantly came forward to greet him. His job was to welcome all the Bluesshareholders as they arrived for the clubs AGM and he’d obviously beenforewarned not...

    Memory Lane Bristol Rovers Cup match

    Some time ago someone posted the link to pathe news which had newsreel of Southend v Bristol Rovers Cup match in 1952, I've now reached this point in my research so I thought you might like to read the story to go with the film. Hopefully the following link for pathe news works...

    Chipper's Guide To F1 Stars

    My lad, in his infinite wisdom, is commemorating his 14th birthday by writing an a-b-c guide to the 2010 Formula One racing season. Now, normally, with petrolheads, they look and sound particularly trainspotterish about the sport. He, though, isn't. This is some of what he's written so far on...

    Is it simon laurent or francis simon?

    Just a bit of nonsense to soften the mood of gloom at the moment or something to think about during the day, whilst waiting for news of loan signings. i was mildly rebuked by Shrimpero on Tuesday evening for using both the names Francis and Laurent to describe Francis Laurent. This...
