  1. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...
  2. Slightly concerned

    I do not wish to introduce any negativity to CP's reign but something is concerning me. It seems Chris does not fancy Elvis or Kyp. Wabo out on loan and what happened to Ba ? I thought when Chris arrived the youth would be encouraged and given chances. Seems only Dru is considered worthy. What...

  4. Proposed Football Rule Changes

    When I first saw this on social media yesterday, I thought it was another piece of "Fake News", but perhaps it's not. The main stream media (newspapers and Sky Sports News etc) seem to be following the story. Have Fifa & Marco Van Basten completely lost the plot? or do you welcome these...

    10 yard spray

    It is obvious to me that the ref using spray has helped in prem games. Yesterday's game with Shrews saw a few disputes over getting the wall back and keeping it in place. Don't the Football League and Ref's Association witness the improvement? AND why don't they get on board and introduce it in...

    Smooth Operator: 27 ways to make girls smile.... NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE

    Number 22 makes me laugh... 1. When she asks how she looks, shrug and say "could be better" - this will keep her on her toes. And girls love that. 2. Never hold her hand. This can be interpreted as a sign of weakness, (or if she grabs your hand, squeeze hers really really hard until she...

    Metal Monday Pt. 15

    SUFC_Al is currently exiled in Kiddermnister (poor *******!) so I'm doing metal Monday this week in his absence! This week I would like to introduce one of the most influential Metal bands this country has produced and the pioneers of the genre Grindcore Napalm Death. This band first formed in...

    Metal Monday Pt.13 (Again not for the faint hearted)

    Hailing from Buffalo, New York this band helped shape a genre. Even some of their own fans are split as to which 'version' of Cannibal Corpse they prefer, with the band shifting to uber-detuned guitars and adding more slower, groovier riffs from their original thrash metal influenced early...

    TrueBlue - New SUFC Ultra's Group..

    Whilst watching the Besiktas V Liverpool game on Wednesday night, it amazed me how much colour and noise the Besiktas Ultra's created.. So it got me thinking.. We should create our own group of Ultra's, to help improve the atmosphere when we move to Fossetts Farm. My idea's/thoughts are as...

    Are your partners mate good looking and is this a bad thing?

    Last night Mrs DtS had a day off so she could help one of her mates go flat hunting. She text me about 3pm to say did I mind if he mates stays for dinner - No skin of my nose so of course she can stay. I was sort of looking forward to seeing her mate as Mrs DtS keep telling me she is the best...

    Shocking Decision's!!!

    After watching MOTD! Two incidents: Wayne Routlidge's disallowed goal for spurs and David Healy's disallowed goal for Fulham. They need to introduce a sort of hawk eye system cause this is getting silly, I mean teams like us could lose points because of ****e decisions of linesmen and ref...

    Roots Hall

    I am very much looking forward to the new stadium - I feel it will really push the club on to new levels but I tell you one thing; I ain't half gonna miss Roots Hall! I was sitting at the game last night and thinking about how much I loved the place. I still get that surge of adrenaline every...
  20. An open letter to Southend United

    Dear SUFC, I am posting this open letter because whenever I have emailed the club over the years I have never received a reply. I am a season card holder with my young son in the West Stand and was appalled at the lack of segregation on offer at today's match with West Ham, and...
