    How much coffee?

    Been having a discussion at work, after my colleagues expressed their shock, and, no doubt, considerable awe at the amount of coffee I drink in a week. I think that the other week I worked my way through a 200g jar of Tesco instant (strength 3). By way of explanation, I only drink black...

    Made to measure shirts.

    I have a lot of trouble buying work shirts. To borrow a phrase from Quadrophenia most shirts with a 17.5" neck are ****ing rent-a-tents and I am reasonably slim in an extra-medium kind of fashion. I am considering getting some shirts made to measure and there a few online companies offering...

    FM 2013 Thread

    Purchased this at the weekend and it arrived yesterday. Either my computer is getting worse or these games are taken up more and more capacity! Short of buying a new computer I have started a new game as England manager because I figured with less news and game time I would get on a lot...

    Question John Brough

    From the match report in Cheltenham's local rag after we tonked them 4-0 at home in April: "Former Robins player, first-team coach and head of youth John Brough is now involved in the backroom staff at Southend and he would have given boss Paul Sturrock plenty of inside information." I never...

    Pay freeze for millions until 2020?

    http://gu.com/p/35v22 The future's not looking so good,if this is accurate.Neither bright nor orange,more like Leonard Cohen's "murder". "I've seen the future, brother: it is murder. Things are going to slide, slide in all directions Won't be nothing Nothing you can measure anymore."
  10. SUFC Marmite XI

    Watching the Northampton game and discussing with my brother the enigma that is Bilel Mohsni, it got me thinking about other players in his mould - you know, players who have liability and match-winning brilliance in equal measure, annihilate the opposition or implode taking the match with them...

    Have we turned the corner 1 year on?

    Cast your minds back to July 2010. The negatives: We had just been relegated to League Two. We had just lost Steve Tilson. We had been in court several times that season. Players were going unpaid regularly. Pretty much all the squad had gone and we were in danger of not fulfilling our...

    Food For Thought.

    I've been a bit quiet on here for a while, frankly the whole political arena is depressing. Even so, I've busy doing what I do. I thought I'd share some thoughts.... The Recession The recession was caused, in essence, by the collapse of the banking industry that took a gung-ho approach to...

    Nigeria Team - Suspended and FA dissolved...

    <linky> "Nigeria's president has suspended his nation's football team from international competition for two years after a poor showing at the World Cup." FIFA won't be happy about this political interference, but a drastic measure - will it actually help improve their football? Would love...

    Overpaid, out of touch and irresponsible

    Cost cutting measures

    Ok, so let's assume we are in administration, and, in these serious times, Let's have your best (legal or Illegal) cost cutting measures just for fun! Please NOT getting rid of the Blue belles. But any other funny, serious or downright lucrative suggestions welcome. Some, any or none of the...
  16. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...
  18. looking forward to Saturday ?

    yep - I love to see young players coming through and taking up the challenge - so it will be a great measure of some of the young fellows ability to see how they match up to Yeovils league one dirty old lags - a lot will probably depend on the ref giving us some protection .... and i think...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney

    There are many ways to measure greatness: appearances, medals, honours, popularity. Well Ron Pountney sits third in the all-time appearance list, was an integral part of the club's first major title (Division 4, 1980-81) and won the player of the year award a record three times. Ronnie...

    BW Hartlepool Highlights

    On the match thread I got my first laugh of the evening when the commentator on BW stated that we needed at least four points from Northampton and MKD's. My second, rather belated, (incredulous) laugh, came from watching us concede our first goal on Friday night. To lose possession in your...
