  1. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    1,000 to 1

    Went in to the local bookies (Ladbrokes) on Wednesday and asked for odds on Southend winning the Premiership title by the end of the 2025/26 season. Not surprisingly they didn't have the odds to hand and told me to come back on Saturday. So in I go this afternoon all expectant of odds of...
  2. What's your greatest weakness?

    Greggs for me. Struggle to go past one without giving serious thought to whether I can grab a steak bake/doughnut. I just booked a hotel pretty much on the basis that a Greggs is next door. What about you? Midget pr0n? Justin Bieber? Cherry Coke? Mars Bars?

    Journey home

    After the game last night I got a bus home from Fairfax Drive and unfortunately their was a well known fan who shall we saw is not the whole ticket. He was shouting out that Tilson and Brown were the worst Southend managers ever, while he thought Fry and Whelen were very sociable. He had...

    The World is Flat

    Watched The Martian today and loved it, read the book which was a bit meh but the film far more entertaining. That led me to have a look at NASA's facebook page and all fascinating stuff about what they are doing to get to Mars. What I also found was bewildering though. There are a lot of...

    First people on mars

    http://news.sky.com/story/1428794/britons-shortlisted-for-one-way-trip-to-mars So we are sending people to mars. Or its a scam to do with reality TV shows ? Cant see this being genuine as the finances must be astronomical, and if they are charging applicants to apply that hardly says they are...
  7. Question New pre-match pub

    The Saxon King, a Marston's pub has opened recently in Priory Crescent, a 10-15 minute walk from the ground apparently. Anyone tried it yet? Any good? http://www.saxonkingpubsouthend.co.uk/

    Neil Tolson

    From the Guardian... Last week we looked at the players to have enjoyed a mid-match snack. Here's Tom Fern with another: "Fleetwood Town v Hyde United in the Conference North in March 2009. Hyde are 1-0 down, and veteran striker Neil Tolson is struggling. At a corner, he asks a supporter - who...

    Players Wages - When will it end?

    Just read in the papers that Wayne Rooney is about to sign a contract worth £300,000 a week! That is an incredible amount and absolutely ridiculous. At what point are the. FA, FIFA, UEFA or whoever going to say "hmmm, this is actually getting a bit silly now maybe we should limit this". I...

    Ancient Mars could have supported primitive life

    Ancient Mars could have supported primitive life, NASA says How primitive I wonder? Like Barnaby primitive? Interesting stuff.
  12. Amazing Machine.

    Just been to the gym and there's a new machine, only used it for an hour as I started to feel sick! Its good though - it does everything.... KitKats, Mars Bars, Snickers, Crisps. the lot.

    Violence Flares At Ryman One North Match

    Football hooliganism hits the mean streets of, ahem, Step 4 non-league football. http://gateway978.com/news/2011/01/one-man-hospitalised-as-football-hooliganism-mars-derby-match/ A pity as it was such a compelling match. I wonder how coincidental a New Year holiday and West Ham not having a...

    Fancy live in a tin can for 18 months?

    Fancy living in a tin can for 18 months? Well someone does. A group of 'astronauts' will be living in a simulated spaceship for 18 months in a warehouse in Moscow. The idea is to find out the psychological effects of long distance space travel, for example, the trip to Mars. The...
  17. Favourite World Cup Advert?

    So, everyone will be getting behind England for the World Cup and hyping up our chances of winning it, but what is your favourite advert? These are the ones I've seen so far. Carlsberg - The one going down the tunnel with England greats in it and the Lion at the end. The Sun(?) - Terry...

    Wembley's Awful Pitch

    90,000 seats, 2618 toilets, 26 lifts, 98 kitchens and 34 bars. Was it too much to ask for Wembley to provide just one decent playing surface? Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final was like watching naughty ten year olds playing football indoors on an untacked carpet. Every change of direction brought a...

    Peter Clarke and Habib Beye in brawl

    Seems like our ex defender was mixing it up with the Newcastle players in a friendly tonight. http://www.shieldsgazette.com/sport/Beye-melee-mars-Toon39s-Terriers.5480574.jp Interesting to see he was named Captain, I didnt realise he'd be getting the armband.
