    Pre-Match Thread Southend United V MK Dons

    For MK this is almost a last chance make or break game SO the game ought to have some bite and maybe a few more Dons fans visiting than usual from them. After the poor pooh showing at Ox then CP will be wanting to show home fans that it is "work in progress" for him in prep for next season and...

    Latest Rumours You're probably paying too much on your mortgage!

    Hi all As a mortgage broker and financial adviser, I have spoken to so many people in the past who hadn't realised that there was anything better for their mortgage than the interest rate that they were being charged. Some didn't think that anyone could help them, so just carried on paying the...
  3. Fighting Talk

    PB was on Fighting Talk today, and at the end Colin Murray expressed his disappointment that PB hadn't reached the final because if he had his Defend the Indefensible subject would have been: Even though Chris Powell has got off to a storming start at Southend with 4 wins and a draw in his...

    Pre-Match Thread Wigan Athletic vs Southend United

    Sometimes it can be therapeutic to look ahead rather than to look back. With that in mind, next Saturday the team is off to Lancashire and a visit to Wigan Athletic who sit in second place in FL1. Piece of cake, we're going to rip them up. I'm not going to bother with a team selection just yet...

    Dash Cams

    I saw some horrendous examples of bad driving on BBC this morning courtesy of footage from dash cams. I must admit I hadn't given the need for one too much thought, but then again there have been occasions recently when a dash cam may have been very useful in the RHB car. I now know that some...

    27 days to go- and what have we got?

    Not long now till the 5th of August and Blackburn at Roots Hall. With the signings of Hendrie, Kightly and Turner(have we?) and Mr Brown looking for more new boys we appear to be set for a very decent squad to start the season. If only Nile hadn't been a complete tool and was getting a full...

  8. Terry Gray

    What a good game last night and, to top it off, Terry Gray was at the game looking very fit and well. We spoke about the famous 'food poisoning' back in 1979 and I hadn't realised just how bad it was. Terry told me that the chicken they had been given was actually contaminated with salmonella...
  9. Names no longer on Seats?

    This isn't a big deal, but at the West Ham game, my dad and I realised the stickers that were on our seats last season are no longer there. You would think that the club would have kept them on there, although they probably took them all off incase some people hadn't renewed or were moving...

    If Bentley is sold...

    Desperately hope we'll hang on to him now we're up, but if he does end up leaving in the summer, what do we do? Invest in a decent new first team keeper, or let Ted Smith take the shirt? It's a tricky one as I would have said Ted 100% if we hadn't gone up, but I don't know if League One will be...

    Making Up New Words

    I was reviewing a powerpoint presentation this morning, and saw a word I hadn't seen before, and that the spellchecker hadn't picked up. We have decided it is a new word, and it describes perfectly how things are expected to get done round here. The word is: automagically. Anyone got any others?

    Question Mads Ibenfeldt

    Was looking through the stats in today's programme at work tonight (a very slow night indeed) and saw Mads name and wondered if he is still actually with the club as hadn't heard anything about him since his injury very early in the season. Does anybody know the situation with him? Has he been...

    Question Invoices

    Hi All, Anyone know the in's and out's of a correctly issued invoice? I received a letter and invoice from a buildings maintenance firm with a due date of payment 43 days before I received the invoice. I hadn't noticed the due date when I first saw the invoice (which I obviously held back...

    **** up in a brewery

    When will SUFC learn their lesson? Quite a few people hadn't had their Season cards delivered and had to get tickets printed for today and quite a few who's didn't work. How long have they had to get season cards sent out? I got to my seat to find they hadn't put the names on as promised...
  15. Names on Seats?

    Does anyone know whether or not the club have put our names on our seats yet? (for those who wanted it done) Noticed at the Ipswich & QPR games that it hadn't been done, and there's nothing on the site yet :unsure:

    Best live stream to watch the playoffs on?

    Anyone got any tips for the best website to watch the playoffs on? I picked up a virus which took me a week to shift watching the Oxford game on Wizwig last month and don't want a repeat tomorrow.(My fault as I hadn't checked that my trial version of Adblocker was still running.It wasn't).:'(...

    Bit of legal advice on wills needed

    Just a quickie if there are any legal bods out there. My Dad (in his late 70's) has just found out that his brother and his wife died a couple of months ago down in Devon. For some reason none of my dads family were advised, even though his brother was in hospital for 3 weeks before passing...

    Cauley Woodrow

    Features in this month's FourFourTwo with a letter describing him as one to watch and a talent for the future with the writer saying he scored in a 5-1 rout against his team and "was everywhere". Clearly he saw something we didn't, though it's not that difficult to look good in a 5-1 win.

    Tax self assessment.

    Is anyone else about to get F'd in the A by the government? I registered for self assessment a month ago and still haven't received my unique taxpayer reference (UTR) required to submit my assessment online. I just called the *******s and they have sent the UTR to my old address despite...

I usually bet on the Golf but with £6.50 sitting there I had a bet on the Swansea v Spurs game today, went out and totally forgot what score etc I'd bet on. Turns out it was a fiver on Spurs to win 3-1 @ 19/1 and the £1.50...
