    I witnessed two of the worst TV Shows.

    Due to a recent split with Mrs DtS I am now reduced to watching a bit more TV that I have been used too. Last night reached an all time low. 9pm and even Champ Man could not take my mind of the split. However a ray of light came to me "Ghost Hunting with Girls Aloud". Fantastic...

    Football "Autobiographies"

    Amidst all the hype of the World Cup and the rest of the summer dedicated to high-profile transfers, we had the inevitable ghost-written autobiogs from England 'stars' that "want to set the record straight." With this in mind, publishers that gave these vain, greedy and stupid...

    Drinking on a school night...

    I feel absolutely terrible. I'm slugging away at water, but it's just vanishing on contact with my dehydrated system. Sugary tea is only exacerbating the acrid, supulchral taste in my mouth. I had a Sausage & Egg McMuffin, which may have been pushing my luck. I keep hearing a...

    Slipperduke meets...

    When I caught up with Adrian Clarke in London's trendy Camden, it was raining. "It's raining," he said with a wry smile, as the water pounded against the windows. He glanced outside at the widening pools of water on the pavement, the reflected lights of the traffic turning them into...

    Ghosts

    I was watching The Best of "Most Haunted" (I have a thing for the ex-Blue Peter bird and I love it when Derek gets possessed) just the other night. It took me back to when I was about 5 or 6 and I saw a ghost in our old house walking in and out of the bathroom on the landing in the...
  6. Shrimperzone poster association

    As there's a huge association thing at the mo' here in the pub i thought i'd see of we can get a poster specific link thing going where we exhibit common ground. Usual rules, you must have a link with previous post and include information for the next post. Include at least a couple...
  7. The best albums of 2006 so far

    Of the 20 or so new albums I've checked out so far this year, the clear front runners are... Mogwai Mr Beast Some are saying a return to form but IMO, they've never made a bad album. That said, this album more than the last few efforts sounds like a band on top of their game and...

    Top 5 Signings of 05-06

    Thanks for all your help and ideas on this feature, guys. You may recognise a few phrases here and there. This, I believe was the first article published in a national broadsheet (Eire) that was co-written by the Southend Messageboard. Scott Parker (Chelsea – Newcastle, £6.5 million, June)...

    The Paranormal

    Anyone willing to divulge (and potentially be the subject of ridicule) their experiences of THE UNEXPLAINED. Have you seen a ghost, a UFO, the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot or Drewe Broughton score a goal?
  10. Interesting...

    Heard today that the proposed take over of West Ham is being Ghost Funded by a ruthless russian Tycoon who once dabbled in business with Abramovich. However, things didnt go smoothly and Abramovich cheated this Russian out of a deal equating to 100's of millions of dollars, leaving the guy...
  11. chalkwell park fair

    Hi just wandered if anyone has gone down to the fair this year and what they thought of it. I just got back from it, had a decent time it was half price night which was good, saw lots of lovely girls mostly in short skirts   but the rides werent so lovely. Went on one ride and while going round...

    The fbm review and ratings

    A TALE OF TWO ERRORS AS FREDDY EQUALS RECORD Freddy Eastwood equalled the Southend scoring in consecutive matches record by hitting the net for the 7th game running as this league 2 encounter hinged on two errors in the first half at the Hall on this Good Friday. So often form goes out of...

    Wot's Going On?

    I woz not dreaming, I checked back. A post from end last week said the West Stand was nearly sold out - similar in other areas. I checked, agreed, and duly booked up to avoid having to sneak in the North with the four Grimsby fans. I thought I'd just check if it was now a complete sell out...

    The fbm view and ratings

    Saturday August 24 1996 was one of my most depressing days as a Blues supporter since 1969. We were unceremoniously thumped 5-0 at Oxford's Manor Ground in what was one of the most uncommitted and pathetic displays I have ever seen from a Southend team. Fences were still up and I think the...
  15. Colchester

    Another evening at Layer Road to live long in the memory! A well deserved win with justice finally done although it didn't look as though it would be for a long time due to the incompetent ref. With a half decent ref we would have costed to a 2-0 win which would have been about right...

    Game

    Shagster posted a game on here a bit ago and I lost it, ok so I have nothing to do and need something tediously addictive to take my mind off the ever present ghost that is on my left shoulder!
  17. Friday Funny

    There are two Mexicans who have been lost in the desert for weeks, and they're at death's door. As they stumble on, hoping for salvation in the form of an oasis or something similar, they suddenly spy, through the heat haze, a tree, off in the distance. As they get closer, they can...
