    Vote of no confidence for Gove

    This would be an interesting move.... <link> I loved this quote: I do thing that general contentment amongst teachers, as with many public sector workers, must be at record low in recent times. Now before we get into "public sector workers don't know how good they've got it" debate - and...

    Dominic Iorfa junior.

    I haven't seen any press on it as such but my spies tell me Dom Iorfa Junior who is 15 has been sold to Wolves after turning down a host of top clubs. Anyone got any ideas how much we got for him? Also is this a big loss. I saw him once on the Liverpool game and as a defender that played in a...
  5. AGM minutes

    Uncle Albert, boots shining like a cyclists tail light,strode into the foyer of the Palace Hotel. As he did so a smartly dressed youngman hesitantly came forward to greet him. His job was to welcome all the Bluesshareholders as they arrived for the clubs AGM and he’d obviously beenforewarned not...

    Hi all...these days I usually respond to threads something around 7-pages in which takes about 2 seconds thought and isn't very serious, just the usual tired crap of taking the **** out of RM, (which lets face it isn't hard, I mean every time he opens his mouth to the press it's bloody hilarous...

    Question Hot girls with bad laughs

    Saw an attractive girl in the street when I was on my way to the shops a minute ago. Nice figure and all that, but then she laughed...the kind of loud laugh you feel embarrassed to be around. Simple question, could you look past the laugh and date someone like this or would you politely refuse...

    RIP Dean Richards

    Sad news yesterday of the death of ex Wolves and Spurs player (amongst others) Dean Richards after a long illness at the age of just 36. Sad loss and thoughts are with his loved ones.

    A rant.

    1. Chanting '****ing Useless to our own player who puts his ****ing heart into his performances, doing what nobody else wants to do, the ****ing dirty work. 2. Cheering when Rhys Evans catches the ball. Brilliant. 3. Constant moaning. 4. Chanting the Seagull louder than anything else. 5...
  15. The Blame Game !

    Firstly I am no fan of Ron Martin. Like many fan's I feel his obsession with the new stadium for his own personal game has harmed our club in recent seasons. That said I feel there are those far more culpable for this afternoon's performance than the Ron. Most of these player's put in a decent...
  16. Thanks Ron

    A 3-2 loss to Morecombe shows how bad things are. Tilly was not the problem it was you Ron Martin and most Southend fans allow you to get away with it. Paul Sturrock has done well with the resources you have given him just like Tilly did. The way i feel tonight i can not put into words but you...

    Rangers hold the key to future Scottish European exploits

    Kaunas is a word that reminds Rangers of a bad time, a one time lacklustre performance in Europe against FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the Second Qualifying round in the 2009/10 UEFA Cup season. Celtic also now have a word that instils disappointment and memories of what could've been. FC Utrecht...
