    Michael Timlin

    Can't get my head around people abusing Timlin in the south upper tonight. Granted he was was having an absolute mare first half, but this is a player who is being played out of position and is one of the most professional players we've got in the squad. Not only is he probably our longest...

    Longest words in the English language

    We're still ages off the start of the season so nonsense threads are still order of the day. So, for those of you that like obscure stuff, see what you can come up with on the longest words in the English language. My starter for 10 is: floccinaucinihilipilification - which is the...
  3. Longest period in a job

    As a flip side to the other thread, what's your longest time in a job? I'm in my 14th year with NR and overall apart from almost 3 years out (travelling and a **** job), I've been on the Railway since 1988. Only 14 years to go to retirement :smile:

    Longest unbeaten record?

    I'm really struggling to remember or even think of long unbeaten records, so what is our longest unbeaten record in the league?
  5. Terrorist drill

    My youngest is a big 12 years old and at a random time this week at school there will be a terrorist drill where the powers that be will play gunshots over the pa and pretend the school is under attack from good old ally ackbar and his mates. In my day we had fire drills and flood drills(canvey)...

    Justin Edinburgh

    Great piece in the Times today on him (Sorry not IT enough to copy on here) However the piece I loved was his time with the boo boys at Spurs " I was one of the longest serving players and became an easy target for the boo boys. It takes a lot to go out there, knowing your not as popular as...
  7. David Gest

    David Gest sadly passed away today in London Hotel. I really liked him as a celebrity that didn't take himself or other celebrities seriously. He was really funny in the jungle, and Big Brother. Yes he was a bit weird, and had that crazy marriage to Liza Minnelli. In the jungle he would have all...

  9. Ref Watch .... Bradford City A

    Our last five visits to Valley Parade have seen us shown a total of 4 red cards (and 1 to them). Despite this we've managed two wins and two draws in those five games. Tuesday's referee is the youngest referee on the Football League List, in his first season. The 29 year old Ross Joyce from...

    Swindon who went there the earliest?

    Following on from the "Longest Serving Supporter?" thread I, like many on here, made my first visit to Swindon just over 47 years ago: 4th January 1969 Swindon Town 0-2 Southend United F,A. Cup Round 3 Goalscorers; Billy Best and Ian Hamilton Attendance; 18,828 The question is has anyone...
  11. Longest Serving Supporter?

    I had the pleasure of sitting 2 seats away from a very nice gentleman that said he had been watching Southend for about 70 Years. 70 Years, can you imagine that? He's seen it all, the ups and downs, the good and bad times. And he's still coming to games when he can, I think from Maldon...
  12. Ref Watch .... Colchester A

    Firstly, festive greetings to all, even referees. League matches at Colchester this century have been alternating wins ..... and it's our turn ! The man in charge will be Phil Gibbs from Birmingham. He is employed as Deputy Headteacher at Kings Heath Boys School, a secondary school in the...

    9th September

    This year, on the 9th September (all being well) the Queen will become the longest reigning British monarch of all time. I wouldn't say it's an achievement or even well done to the Queen because she hasn't actually done anything to be Queen for so long, other than have her dad die when she was...

    Mascot at Roots Hall?

    Anyone done this for their kids recently? Thinking of doing it as a Christmas present for my youngest when we are over at the end of the year. He'll have just turned 8 by then - worth doing?
