  2. Love-in

    I've only been on here for a few years , so relatively new in that respect. Now I'm sure this has been done before , so forgive me if I'm talking about re-hashing something. Just thinking it would be good if we had a general 'meet up' to put faces to names. I was introduced to this site by the...

    Apologies if seen already: SUFC promotion congratulated in parliament

    http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2015-16/43 Might be nice for Amess to pull his finger out and use whatever influence he may have locally to move the stadium on rather than hopping on the promotion bandwagon for no discernible benefit...

    Southend council: Ron Woodley

    Did anyone pick up on his quotes in respect of the new Spurs shop opening in Southend high street? “It does surprise me they’re opening a store here as their supporters locally seem to be few and far between." “I think it’ll be a good addition to the High Street, but I...

    What a strange world football is...
