  1. Ben Coker

    Nice article on Ben on page 28 of today's Metro which highlights his positive attitude to dealing with the injections required to deal with his diabetes (4 a day) well as the rejections he has had in football.

    Gary Dear

    Not sure if he was known by any shrimpers here but he passed away a few weeks ago, he had a distinctive laugh that you'd never forget and was a true gentleman. RIP Gary
  3. what we need to do?

    what we need to do for the rest of this season, 1) ibelieve first the supporters must now rally around the team and support them 2) The club must at all cost avoid relegation, if RM needs to offer the players an incentive to do this so be it 3) We need an very quickly to sign whether they be...
  4. Southend United vs Fleetwood Town

    It has been a disappointing last few days with plenty of transfer talk and no action, club meetings with the Chairman trying to sort out problems and many posts wanting the manager out. For the next few hours we need to get behind the team, whether you agree with selection, tactics etc to...

    Too much football over Christmas?

    There's been a lot of talk over the last week about the festive fixture schedule and whether we play too much football in this country, with managers complaining, particularly those from the top Premier League clubs (who ironically have the biggest squads). I do have some sympathy with them...
  6. The Eternal Optimist

    Playoffs still possible? Truth or the ramblings of an idiot?

    Moan, moan, groan, groan. Where has The love gone? It is not all doom and gloom. Fortune favours the brave. Despite the crap I witnessed at Sixfields today. Yes we have had some rotten luck with deflections, injuries, **** poor referees and the bad news as regards the playing squad moving on...
  7. Does Jon Venables deserve execution?

    Following on from a very brief discussion in a seperate thread a few months ago, it's been confirmed today that Jon Venables is to once again stand trial for possessing indecent images of children. I'd like to gauge people's thoughts on whether Corporal Punishment would be justified here...

    Effectiveness of Substitutes

    Something I noticed was that this season in the league we have just 1 goal according to the programme from our substitutes in the league, that being McGlashan in the 4-2 win against Fleetwood. Obviously, you wouldn't expect a defender to contribute offensively so you could look at those...

    The Negative Thread

    Oh God. This place. Some of you. Aaaarrrrghhh...... every thread. Everywhere. So, as some have suggested elsewhere, here is ONE thread where you can moan endlessly about the manager, the age of the squad, Nile Ranger, Anton Ferdinand, lack of a signing, the wrong signing, the player who got...
  12. Set Pieces

    You would think that the management understand this to be a way you can win/loose games We lost the game at Scunthorpe because we conceded 2 goals from corners It’s remarkable (lost for words) that it has been over 70 corners since we last scored. This blame can not be put on anyone but the...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Charlton Athletic

    Just had this email in from the club, which I guess most people will see, but just in case some don't :- "Good afternoon, We hope you have a great Christmas. With all hospitality areas completely sold out, the car park for our fixture against Charlton Athletic on Boxing Day will...
  14. Ref Watch Festive Officials

    After Keith Stroud on Saturday (more about him later), the festive appointments are, as usual, made well in advance and are as follows: Scunthorpe (A) Martin Coy Charlton (H) Graham Horwood Shrewsbury (H) Gavin Ward Wimbledon (A) John Busby The two at Roots Hall are certainly nothing special.
  15. CLUELESS PHIL strikes again, please Ron no more!

    ....off the back of a decent home performance he has no idea how to win the next away game. Yet another year wasted under this bul lshi tting clown, please Ron rescue the season NOW with a new appointment, and yes i have just sat through 70 minutes of that negative cr ap!
  16. Lift needed to Bristol Parkway station after the game, please

    Any fan(s) going by car willing to offer a festive favour and drop me back at Bristol Parkway Station after? It's about two miles from the ground, and headed in the right direction for the motorways. Will buy you a pasty! Please PM me. Gracias:thumbsup:

    Pre-Match Thread Bristol Rovers vs Southend United

    And so, after a disappointing result on Wednesday, we move on to Saturday and Bristol rovers away at the Memorial Stadium. With Timlin having finished his one match suspension, apart from Michael Kightly, it looks like the rest of the squad is available for Saturday's game. Guessing the team...
  18. What really happened in Vegas

    The official story has been changed several times and is still does not add up. Many of you will have been to Vegas and know how your are watched night and day. So to follow on from a debate started on the Trump thread........Here goes for starters Why haven't we seen any CCTV of Paddock on...

    Memory Lane Greatest Ever Day

    Picked up this from another thread and it does seem we've done this before at some point, but not for a little while. I guess the best way of doing this is for it to be your personal favourite. It could be an obvious one, like a promotion clinching day or a famous cup match, right down to...

    Question Whose got the luck? guts and stamina?

    Lenny the legs is on track for the hall of fame more than ever if he doesnt depart, although in all likelihood he will. I think hes turned out 23 times already and would be on track to be our first player to turn out in over 40 games a season ( including subs ) 4 times. ( 4 seasons ) pretty...
