    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...

    Joe Pigott

    I suppose it is possible that "The Pig" may have played his final game for Southend today and if so what a way to go out. He has carved his name into SUFC folklore for all time now and his goal will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest ever moments in our history. Not only that but what...
  4. young players

    Fans please give the young players plenty of support. They are going to make some mistakes as they are still learning the game, only hope they learn from them. Getting on their backs will not help them or the team. I know its every fans right to shout what they think but please encourage them if...

    After a few months of work and learning knowledge I am at the point of launching my business True Blue Travel, focusing at the higher end executive travel in our Chrysler 300C but at the same price as you would pay for a normal 5 door Ford Mondeo to turn up! Please follow our twitter...

  8. Question What are you looking forward to in 2012

    Carrying on from the How good was 2011 to you thread, what are you looking forward to in 2012? Got a few things myself. Started learning to drive recently, so hopefully will pass and get myself a car. Got a couple of holidays to look forward to, and possibly going aboard for the first time in a...
  9. The Plymouth Rumours

    A wee birdie told me that the manager is totally committed to restructuring the club and is confident that he will have his second in command learning his trade.

    Teaching Assistants - no good!

    Apparently Teaching assistants are a waste of time and teaching on the cheap! Teaching assistants 'do not help improve grades', report into Pupil Premium spending finds Teaching assistants have 'no effect' on improving grades, an influential report has suggested. A study into how best to...
  11. Business is business - Why pay the players or management any more money ?

    Having been learning about business by following RM's business style I cannot see any reason to pay out anymore money to this lot ...... just tell PS to get down to training and tell them all the outstanding cash will be paid in full by the end of April - and get him to tell them the same thing...

    Captains Blog Part 2

    EAST ON.... I know this is supposed to be a light-hearted column so I’ll get Saturday’s defeat against Morecombe out of the way first. What can I say, we’re all gutted with the result and the way we lost the three goals in a game where we once again had most of the play. When we equalised at...

    Credit where its due...

    This is mainly for the haters... But credit the club this week - for the ON field activities. Yes, theres a lot of problems that we all know about and most love to keep digging up and going over, and over... but the positives of this week could be massive. 1) Firstly, I believe the Port Vale...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Port Vale.

    Well match day is upon us yet again. Whilst most of the talk has been about Tilly's pay off and Sturrocks need for a striker , its been a strange week of relative quiet on the zone . This has been slow news week that is for sure. There has even been talk that V festival will affect southend...

    Speaking on Blues player... * Delighted with performance * Pleased to push a Premiership side so much * Please Zabboub and Blair got a run out - but will be 'a while' before they are fit * Great work rate and attitude - showing the attributes that PS likes. * 'Icing on the cake' would be a...
