    Hey everybody!

    Hello I have been a quiet member of the forum for a few months now, and suddenly realised I have never posted anything, so no better place than this thread to start! I was born in Southend to a familys-worth of SUFC fans (Mum, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Grandparents etc) and have been an avid...
  2. Restaurant Recommendation needed

    Taking my Grandparents out next Saturday evening for their 80th birthdays. Need a nice restaurant to take them too. Not ridiculously expensive, a nice pub would be ideal. Are the pubs down in Paglesham still good? Cheers guys. pubes xx

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    Best time ever to be a Southend fan

    As opposed to Bluebloods thread which, whilst no doubt a decent discussion point, is only going to create more negativity. Look people, if there are negative thoughts and vibes then that is what will transpire to be. If you look for a sinister motive or negative point, you will find one. It...

    Southend United under the Shadow of War

    “Southend United Under the Shadow of War” is my next book which should be published this coming November. For those that have seen my previous effort the “Forgotten Years of the Kursaal” the format is much the same, match reports intermingled with snippets from the local paper, and is my attempt...

    Question Mediums and Psycics.

    Where do you stand? The Mrs is out at the moment with one of my old work mates (a woman I should add) and our respective daughters. Now this girl I used to work with used to go to a medium all the time so she could speak to her dead grandparents and get guidance. She swears by it. One her last...

    Anzac Day

    Anzac Day was yesterday, a national day of reflection for the Australian and New Zealand troops killed in action over the years. The veterans march to dawn services, but so do schools and scout groups etc. Seeing young kids with their Grandparents or maybe even parents medals pinned to their...
  8. Owen Coyle

    Excuse the rambling, I have a soft spot for Burnley.... Owen Coyle to Bolton. If there ever was a mismatch made in heaven then this is it. Up until a few years ago Southend v Burnley was a regular fixture. Dour and difficult to play away and we'd look to get points off them at home. Yet I...

    A Stirring Match - A Warcry for Tomorrow.

    Col Ewe tomorrow and I'm sure we don't need a WarCry but sometimes it's worth remembering who and what we are. We are Southenders, Southend United supporters with a proud history and love for our town and our club, not dependent on success (unlike our deluded premiership counterparts) but we...

    Saturday Night - Indie/Alternative Time

    Ladies & Gents, Pubey's fantastic "what are you listening to..." thread has given me an idea. Tonight, I have the dull joy of going to a wedding reception where I will be listening to the likes of Whitney bloody Houston etc. My only way of surviving this will be to get very drunk and then detox...

    Question Where to take Mrs DtS for her suprise birthday treat.

    Hello, Just starting to plan ahead to Mrs DtS's birthday in November. I have decided to treat Mrs DtS to a weekend away. The grandparents have agreed to baby sit which is excellent so all I have got to do now is find somewhere to go. Being the tight ******* I am I am looking at taking her on a...

    Ever seen yourself in a picture where you didn't expect it?

    Just had a freaky experience. Googled a picture of the Crooked Billet in Leigh to send to a bloke on the Brisbane Roar forum who lives in London (he may head down this weekend and was looking for recommendations). I got one from the Beer In The Evening website and posted it on the forum. Upon...

    Chairman's Blog 12th May

    Chairman's Blog I believe I have now answered all those questions – either singularly or combined – that have been sent to the Club’s media department. There were one or two “stragglers” but these points were covered in earlier responses. I have yet to come to a...

  15. Shocking custody case in London today...

    London, UK (Reuters) - A seven year old boy was at the centre of a London courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with...

    Family History & Genealogy research

    When my mother sadly passed away in 2005 my sister and I got to thinking about our family history. At this point we realised we knew virtually nothing about my father, his family or that side of the family. We knew where he grew up and that was it. My mother never talked about that side to the...

  18. Fed up with my name!

    Bored & depressed as we were on the way back from Bostonshire and driving past places with wonderful old footballers names like Deeping St Nicholas, Guthram Gowt, Surfleet Seas End, Gosberton Clough etc, I regaled the assembled Hooly Tours masses (i.e. mcnasty!) with my most boring story.   At...
