    About time too !

    Well, I've arrived in the zone at long last ! I am a mature gentleman of a "certain age", and thanks to big bruv and Dad, have been a Shrimpers man all my life.......though I'm ashamed to admit that I live near Gillingham !!! (yuuuggh !) Still, I can proudly claim some heritage, as my family...
  2. Memory Lane John McKinven

    It is with deep sadness that I have heard of the death of former Shrimper John McKinven on July 25th.aged 73. He was one of my early hero's who joined Southend from Raith Rovers as an inside left. It was however when he switched to outside left that he became a real crowd favourite. His nickname...

    BOXING: Darren Barker Set to Retire

    Not sure if anyone watched this at the weekend. But it looks like Darren Barker is set to retire after just one (unsuccesful) defence of his recently aquired IBF Middleweight belt. According to Simms he's popped his hip again and it looks like curtains for him. Such as shame as he's always been...
  4. The team we could have conceivably been watching

    Just watching the incredible Reading v Arsenal game and watching the players we've had at the Hall over recent years, either on loan or owned, that we could be watching now. A lot of the loans we probably could have signed if we'd have had some cash on the hip at the time...

    Scudamore Is A Mad Fool

    I hope you’ll ignore the sheen of cold sweat across my face today. I’m not ill, I’ve just been reading those interviews with Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore. It was a most disconcerting experience, rather like jumping into a cab and realising, as the engine roars and the locks...

    Things I will really miss about record shops

    Because, let's face it, they're all going to shut, aren't they? The thing I will miss most is that random chance discovery. I actually don't mind being able to buy & download music as and when I want it and think it's largely great. But I've had so many great trips to record shops where I've...

    Most Important Musical Breakthrough Of The Past 50 Years

    What do you reckon it is? Personally for me I would like to put forward, the Amen Break. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen_break http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwQLk7NcpO4 Without it, Hip Hop, Dance Music and the like wouldn't have really existed as it does today. Any other shouts?

    From the echo online "Tilson also confirmed that the club had reached a deal with Sunderland to bring back Jean Yves M’Voto on loan when he recovers from his hip injury."

    Facebook used as evidence in court

    I work in Liability insurance and this report just came through at work for one of our Insureds: So using Facebook pictures (presumably) as evidence we saved ourselves AUD 228,000 on an estimated settlement! Just goes to show that Big Brother is watching everything these days!!
  15. Au Revoir M'Voto

    So M'Voto goes under the knife for a hip injury and will be out until January. Of course his loan finishes in January! So I guess he goes back to Sunderland.

    M'voto - can anyone confirm this story?

    From a post on 606: SSN are reporting on their bottom box bit that Mr M'Voto has gone back to Sunderland this afternoon for them to look at his leg. Does this mean that it's more serious than first thought (hip, originally) and it's maybe the end for him here?

    Striker Crisis For Capello

    England 4-0 Slovakia Heskey, 7 Rooney, 70, 90+2 Lampard, 82 Forget about the result. A 4-0 victory over a substandard Slovakia might look nice on the scoreboard, but it has no place in the bigger picture. Fabio Capello will be far more concerned by a dramatic injury crisis in his frontline...
