    Long story, power cuts and a water dowser.

    If I had posted this when it started, it may have had the legs to match MK's fridge post. So i'll keep it short but you may get bored. Earlier this year, probably February time, I saw some damp patches on the left side outside wall of my house. Thought they would dry up but they didn't. We...

  6. Late(st) Supporters Forum update

    A couple of weeks back I promised a report back from the latest Supporters Group Forum meeting, apologies for it taking so long but things have been a bit hectic and time has been at premium, anyway I’ve now managed to find a couple of hours spare, so here goes. Hope you've got a couple...
  7. Pyros - again

    Not seen it mentioned anywhere else. I trust that the Swindon fans will be subject to the same investigation and vilification that ours received last year following them setting off two pyros in the North Bank during the second half of yesterday's game. A steward told me that the perpetrators...

    MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — With a malevolent laugh, the leader of Nigeria's Islamic extremists tells the world that more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls have all been converted to Islam and married off, dashing hopes for their freedom. "If you knew the state your daughters are in today, it might...

    Finally got round to reading the above while on holiday in Spain, and a fascinating read it was too. Apologies if this book has been covered before, but the following caught my eye ; McDonough thought that that Dave Smith was ‘a nervous odd bod’ who he described as ‘Mister Magoo’ (he was sacked...

    POLL to decide changes

    Further to previous thread, I have added a poll and we will go with the majority decision. The questions were: 1) As fascinating as games such as Accrington v Burton are to predict, how about have one fixture from league 1 (Borient or Col Ewe) included in the 6 games? 2) I probably...

    Player of the Year

    So it's that time again to vote for your player of the year. I believe it's been a defender 4 of the last 5 seasons, will it be another this season? There isn't one outstanding candidate this season but for me there's 4 contenders - Cresswell, Hurst, Tomlin and Corr. Cresswell has been our best...

    Fighting idiots

    Went to the game at Burton yesterday looking forward to keeping the unbeaten run going. The worst part of the day though was having to watch 2 apparently drunken idiots punching each other and scuffling in the Southend supporters end. Claims were made by one offender that he had been upset...

    Help identifying autographs

    The Trust has received a request via the website for help in identifying a number of autographs that were obtained by someone living in Portugal but that was at the pre-season friendly at Dartford in the summer of 2010. I've had a scan through and have identified some of them, I've also...

    Good night to you all, Im a personal friend of Marcus Milner, hes only made one appearance for Southend United while he was a member of the U 18 squad in the Steve Tilson Era.

    http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/ww2.html I'm not a particularly big history/war buff, but this website is breathtaking. Just a few pics... Symbolic of the defense of Sevastopol, Crimea, is this Russian girl sniper, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who, by the end of the war, had killed a confrimed...
