    Row breaks out over 5 legged dog

    No disrespect intended but this story in the Echo amused me. Probably no laughing matter for the family but it reminded me of Uncle Alberts funeral in Only Fools and Horses. http://m.echo-news.co.uk/news/14251389.Row_breaks_out_over__five_legged_dog__funeral_flowers/?ref=mr&lp=2

    Anyone have a punt? Seems like the investment was akin to gambling your dough on a horse running in a race against one legged donkeys.

    Memory Lane Wednesday night football at the Hall over the years

    4-1 Huddersfield - they had two sent off and Alan McCormack(!) got a double 1-4 Chelsea - Barrett. Bloody Revell missed a sitter at 1-0 1-0 Grimsby 1996 - Tilson (not the famous Tilly goal v Grimsby, that was on a Friday night IIRC) 2-1 Port Vale 1995 - week before Xmas. Mike Marsh got a pen but...

    FAO Cluneimore, please can we have some answers as to what is going wrong

    I personally respect the appearances of Sturrock/Coughlan or whoever this Cluneimore character was during the course of the season, however what I would say is that the appearances only seemed to be aimed at fans who were moaning whilst the team was winning. When things started to go wrong...
  6. Looks like the play-offs

    If you break our season down into quarters (4 lots of 9 games), we have taken 16, 25, 11 and 12 points in these spells. If you take out the "freaky" spell of 25 points, it still means that we are averaging 13 points per 9 games. If we get a further 13 points in the next 9 plus a win in match 46...

    Sturrock : Master tactician

    Paul Sturrock is a genius. He knows that the best day ever for southend supporters ( not including cup matches ) was the league play off final in Cardiff. He also knew how gutted we were to lose out to Swindon + not go to Wembley in the JPT. He realises that by finishing 4th we will have a 2...

    Question Which cup do you see as our priority.

    Before anyone speaks up I appreicate the league is the key. However I wondering whcih cup would be PS's priority? On one hand were could potentially taste glory in the LDV. Swindon at home I would think were just about favourites for and a win there will set us up with a two legged tie again...
  9. The spider thread

    So how are you with our eight-legged friends? There was a HUGE house spider in the sink this morning that would have given Mrs MK a coronary, but I let the lil' bugger crawl over my hands and arms as I attempted to get a blurry photo before I plonked it outside in the fresh air. So are you...

    Crisis Time, But Don't Sack Rafa

    Forget the Champions League. Forget the Europa League. Forget the FA Cup. For Liverpool, nothing now is more important than the Premier League. The very future of the football club depends on where they finish in the table in May. The crass stupidity of the leveraged buy-out that gave control...

    Platini Has Sold Us Out

    The arrival of Michel Platini as the head of UEFA was supposed to herald a new dawn for European football. It was the ascent of a footballing legend, a lover of the game, into a position of great power. What a shame that he's turned out to be just like the faceless bureaucrats he replaced...

    The Lucky Omen and PMA Thread

Both 2 legged LDV finals, we won the away leg at Colchester and Bristol Rovers. We have failed to score for 2 games in a row only twice all season, and...

    Liverpool v Chelsea Champions League

    Tonight, for the third time in four years, Liverpool meet Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Football’s most festering rivalry is back and the dirty war has already begun in earnest. There’s something very strange about the relationship between these two teams. They are...

  19. Disabled Toilets

    For some unknown reason, my mate got the whole office debating whether or not it's appropriate for (non-disabled) people to used disabled toilets. Most people agreed that it's ok if there is no other option but me and my mate said that if convenient we wouldn't mind using it. The other week at...
