    Strange things that happen on holidays

    Prompted by Kaymacs post in the where would you like to live thread. It was I think about 1983 when I went to Vancover for a few months, I have relatives there and always wanted to visit the place. I met up with a guy and his wife, I forget their names now, but he asked me, "Would I help him...
  2. Supershrimper


    Noticed on Saturday he headed straight down the tunnel at the final whistle, and I noticed it again last night at Bury. Is he starting to get irritated by fans that criticise him when he is going round after the final whistle thanking them for their support. At Bury yesterday there was one...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Peterborough United

    There's a game tomorrow and it's against our old friends Peterborough United. I say friends. More a sort of distant cousin who we occasionally visit but don't really like that much. In fact, they're a bit of a nuisance, really. The sort of team that comes here and scores in the last minute...
  7. Mugged in Southend

    Someone tried to mug me last night. After living in the town for over 30 years this is the first time this has happened to me. I was walking back from Herbies near Southchurch Park when I sensed two youths were following me on the other side of the park railings. They had hoodies on and I felt...
  8. Under-18's - ouch ;

    Charlton’s U18s enjoyed a thumping 13-1 friendly victory over Southend United at Sparrows Lane on Tuesday afternoon. Seven of the Addicks’ goals came in the first half with Alex Willis opening the floodgates after just five minutes when he headed home Albie Morgan’s free-kick delivery. The...
  9. Report from the training ground. 11th July 2016.

    I went and saw a very enjoyable training session today. It was mainly a very intense and fast match of about 10 v 10. No goalies as Smith and Bexon played with the Youth. PB and GC stood in goal each end to knock the ball back, not save shots. PB would blow the whistle about every 8 minutes for...
  10. Our own Worst Enemy

    I wonder how many of us actually thought we'd finish in the top half of the table when the season began? have we as fans got carried away by the period of good results we had towards the end of the year and early part of this year? it its arguable that Wycombe deserved to be promoted off the...
  11. Ref Watch ...... Peterborough A

    League matches against Peterborough are tied at 19 wins apiece. Saturday gives us the opportunity to edge ahead with our first "double" of the season. The referee is relatively inexperienced in only his second season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from Weston-Super-Mare...
  12. Ref Watch ...... Scunthorpe H

    The referee for Saturday is relatively inexperienced in only his second season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from Weston-Super-Mare, a shaven-headed 38 year old who works in property maintenance. Last season, his first in the League went reasonably well, albeit with only...
  13. Daniel Bentley - The Ongoing Transfer Saga

    Bumped into Daniel l night in my local asda store (SWF) had a chat with him ref transfer. He stated it was all down to the club if he stays or goes. I thanked for taking the time to talk to me, he is a nice guy, not big headed etc. I wish him the best of luck for his footballing future

    Kick it out diversity thingy

    Latest thing coming via the clubs website is this kick it out thing, now I am all for not having racism etc.... BUT why when articals below are shoved down our throat for me this is just more PC diversity rubbish that creates more barriers then it solves We are a tolerant country one of the...
  15. Are we headed toward mediocrity !

    When PB first came to SUFC i was delighted , my first thoughts were that we was heading on the right track ,iask a question now as many ,myself included thought that with his signing we would also be able to bring in some high profile players ( for this division ). But as yet we havent,even...
  16. Ref Watch ....... Shrewsbury H

    The last 4 Southend v Shrewsbury matches at Roots Hall have seen alternate wins to each team; sadly it's Shrewsbury's turn next. Tomorrow's referee is a Roots Hall debutant in his very first season as a League referee. He is Kevin Johnson from Weston-Super-Mare, a shaven-headed 37 year old...

    Spiders with stiffy venom

    I love this story which, for me, in the last two paragraphs is the ultimate "I'll give you the good news first, then the bad news" story. http://www.essexchronicle.co.uk/venomous-Brazilian-spiders-headed-Essex-Woman/story-22898021-detail/story.html Undertakers will certainly have issues...

    Interesting Stat...

    From the Telegraph today: Stat #4: Norwich v Hull: No Premier League team has conceded more headed goals than Hull this term (seven) Although Norwich’s headed goal - scored by came from a corner, it typified the problems Hull have had in defending long balls into the box. In open play...
  19. Why bas vegas ?!?

    I have promised a young lad at work a beer or two after his role in yesterday's victory. He was staying at the Holiday Inn in Basildon, where he saw in the New Year. As he headed down for breakfast the following morning he was accompanied in the lift by some Porstmouth players. They asked his...
