    Essential Southend landmarks

    One of my favourites is Kings Off Licence on Hamlet Court Road. An amazing window display and once inside there is very little you cant buy, from groceries to craft beers, cigars to adult interest publications. The owners do a fantastic job of hiding their contempt for the clientele who are a...
  2. Memory Lane 120 years ago today .....

    David Jack was born. Probably nearly as famous for scoring the first FA Cup Final goal at Wembley (dribbling round Billie, the white horse and slotting home) as he was for managing us for 6 years! He'd lived in the town and went to school at Hamlet Court whilst his father was the first Southend...

  7. TrueBlue's nightmare...

    http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/dulwich-hamlet-non-league-football-109?utm_source=vicetwitteruk Quite an interesting piece I thought, especially about the gentrification issue, but in general it's good to see non-league teams who are doing well and doing something different.
  8. Latest Rumours Non-League Players

    Hearing Southend were interested in Dulwich Hamlet forward Erhun Oztumer before his move to Peterborough Utd. The Turk was more than prolific at non-league level. With Dan Holman leaving Southend on trial, and then signing for Col Ewe, surely he was worth a punt?! Wouldn't it be worth a shot...

    If Southend United cease to exist.....

    What would you do? I reckon I might watch speedway, a low quality regional Ice Hockey/Basketball team or perhaps just hang around the bus stops at the top of Hamlet Court road with a can. Anyone else?

    The fire in Hamlet Court Road....

    If anyone knows who the two jokers are who have been bailed for the alleged arson attack that took out Jefferies the solicitors in Courtway House the other night, please introduce me so I can shake them warmly by the throat! All my divorce paperwork went up in that and I am now going to have to...

    Wenger Really Isn't A Paedo

    Sir Alex Ferguson has not exactly covered himself in glory in front of the press this season, but his spirited defence of Arsene Wenger's honour is to be applauded. The Manchester United boss has called on his own supporters to refrain from their sickening chants about Arsene Wenger when they...

    Blow Me, Duckface. I'm Sick of Hicks

    Is it nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles and, by opposing, end them? A question posed 500 years ago by Hamlet in Denmark was emphatically answered this weekend by club director Tom Hicks Jnr in Liverpool. It seems...

    Fascinating Scousers

    I owe Rafa Benitez one. The weekend before last, an hour before I walked down the aisle, my Best Man decided that my nerves should be on public display for the entertainment of others and walked me into a pub first. He needn't have bothered. The public were already getting all the entertainment...

    Memory Lane Special Report on SUFC's previous homes

    Nice piece from the Echo's site today (I know there's no paper today), could have gone in the other forum I guess, but thought it kind of went alongside the Hall of Fame stuff we've been doing. Sing the Blues for stadiums past 12:10am Saturday 30th May 2009 Comments (0) Have your say » By...

    Gavin Rose?

    Former Dulwich Hamlet midfielder Gavin Rose has been named as the Ryman League Division One South club’s new manager. He replaces Craig Edwards, who quit along with assistant Paul Downes last week after failing to come to an agreement of next season’s playing budget at a meeting with chairman...

    Best off licence in the area.

    Can anyone beat the Kings off licence on Hamlet Court road? The window display rivals the pyramids of Egypt for sheer scale and they sell just about anything that you would ever want to drink plus a half decent array of cigars and scratchcards. I miss the days when I used to nip in for a...
