  1. Roma 'penalty'

    I didn't watch the match but Graham Poll is quoted in today's DM that Roma were denied a clear penalty when the Liverpool player handled in the box. I'm not querying whether it was a penalty - except to say I still think some referees haven't a clue about 'intent' - but he then goes on to say...
  2. Who in the squad has played their last game for us

    Partly to demonstrate intent, and partly to clear the books... John White? Stephen Hendrie? Theo Robinson?

    Billericay Town

    What are you making of Billericay Town and their owner - he seems like an interesting bloke. Putting a lot of money into the squad and making changes to matchday, not sure how much dough he has, but seems intent to take them up a few levels. If they did get into the FL - then at least its an...
  4. Surely we have filed later than 3 months.....on many occasions ? ;

    News has gone from bad to worse for Leyton Orient after Companies House issued a First Gazette notice for a compulsory strike-off. The club, owned by Italian Francesco Becchetti, have yet to file their accounts, which were due on March 31. They are now nearly three months late. The document...

    ITV REPORT 28 September 2016 at 5:17pm Phil Brown: Sam Allardyce exit like a bereavement Play video Sam Allardyce's former assistant Phil Brown says the end of his brief reign as England boss is like a bereavement. Brown, who worked under Allardyce for many years at Bolton, told ITV News...

    England fans abroad

    The current crowd disturbances in France always seem to involve England supporters in some way or the other. Either as victims or aggressors our fans are never out of the headlines. Once you give a dog a bad name it never goes away and that, again, seems to be the case in France. What annoys me...

    Under 18's Match Report Youth Team In Seventh Heaven - Saturday 7th September 2013

    Southend United U18s kicked off Blues Youth Day in style with a 7-2 victory over Gillingham at Boots & Laces, signalling their intent to progress in the Football League Youth Alliance Cup in the process. Rob Craven's match report can be found here.
  9. Götze to Bayern

    Ignoring the timing of the announcement, which has been cynically agreed upon to draw attention away from revelations concerning Hoeness' tax fraud shenanigans; that is one hell of a statement of intent from Bayern for the future under Pep Guardiola. They're a side already littered with world...

  12. The Reasons Why?

    A wee birdie told me to explain why certain players not signed up yet. Our new chief exec and the gaffer have been on holiday and the physio is also sunning himself. Plus some of his targets are holidaying and negotiating over the phone. Which means one or two of the main ingredients for players...

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    What was Mohsni up to at the end?

    Seemed to be intent on getting up to the north stand to either confront their fans or one of their players - Grant and Blair tried to drag him away but he was quite persistent but eventually changed his mind and came over to the West Stand. Anyone got any ideas who he was after?

    Academic statements of purpose/intent

    I'm currently having to write one of these and it is definitely the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Anyone on here every written one and can give me any pointers? all i've been given by the uni is 'about a page'

    West Ham v Millwall

    Tomorrow. 12.30pm kick off. I think this one could get messy. Massive interest. Standard talk of huge police presence. Warnings in the papers and on the club sites to any fans intent on causing trouble. After the debacle at Upton Park in the Carling Cup a few years ago and then the flag over...

    Chara cracks Pacioretty's neck - league does nothing

    Zdeno Chara, surely the ugliest man in professional sports, and chief punk of the goon squad that is the Boston Bruins, deliberately smashed Montreal forward Max Pacioretty into the 'turnbuckle' at the Bell Centre and walked away scot free. The two players had a simmering feud going after...

    Where will we finish this season

    It would appear that the team and i use the word team with intent because we no longer have a collection of individuals are gelling at the right time and restoring some pride to our weary supporters. They have come on leaps and bounds not just in manner of performance , but most importantly in...

    Rusty's X-Files - A Brief SUFC Themed Special

    There's not much to say anymore. Even the most pink-hued of the rose-tinted spectacle brigade are joining us in the realist corner - our beloved club is well and truly ****ed. I'm not going to post a rallying cry - I know we'll get behind the team if by some miracle we're able to get a team...
