    Will we sign anymore by the start of the season

    Now that we are seemingly not offering the trialists deals and with injuries mounting already, we will need more in. I've not heard from Brown or CP that there are others in the pipeline. I hope with all of the money we are making from player sales that we are able to get some real quality...

    Football Manager 2014 - Phoenix Club Scenario

    Had a mess around with the data editor. Imagine Ronald's dream failed and the club's mounting debts and inability to meet monetary obligations led to liquidation. A new fan-owned phoenix club, AFC Southend United, have been entered into Ryman League Division 1 North. No debts of any kind...

    Next Season - Will the league be easier or harder

    I know its early days, but thinking about next season and how we might fair, taking into account the teams coming up from the conference and coming down from League One. Personally I think the bookies will make us one of the favorites, and our odds wont be as generous as this season, so who...
  4. DIY question

    Doing up a bedroom in our house. The chimney breast from the dining room comes up through this room. There are two sockets on the chimney breast, attached outside the wall using mounting boxes like this... We're getting the walls skimmed and so I thought I could set the sockets into the wall...
  5. Promotion

    After last night and the mounting injury list who still thinks we are going to get promoted? I may just be overreacting, and I hope I am, but if things carry on with the injuries and suspensions I can't see us going to wembley or getting promoted. This month is probably our most crucial month...

    US Election 2012: Why is Obama favourite on UK betting sites?

    All of the polls in the US have Romney ahead with his lead growing, and with Obama burdened by the mounting questions about the handling of the Libyan Embassy attack, that's unlikely to change in the next week. Unless a Saville-esque revelation about Romney is revealed this weekend, Obama looks...
  7. Question Questions for Cluniemore and his wee birdie

    Are the monthly losses still at the same level as they were in September ? Where have the resources come from to make the recent new signings ? Are we gambling on getting promotion and if we fail to go up will we be able to keep this squad together next season ? If we fail to go up what...

    Mounting a TV on a wall.

    After three months solid work the Mrs and I are weeks away from moving in. We planned to mount our old 32inch tele on the wall in our bedroom. Are all TVs in effect wall monutable or if not how do I know if my TV can be put on the wall? I am not looking for a revolving bracket type thing you...

    Blues Call Centre Staff Are Laid Off

    For the record, another Echo article confirming staff redundancies (Christine Sexton, Wed 7 July 2010) Southend United have laid off call centre staff at the club in the wake of mounting financial pressure. Young people employed to sell Southend United branded products to shops and season...
  10. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    Articles Typed Up (For those who don't have access to them)

    For those of you that do not have access to the Echo, I have typed up some of the sections in the paper. I hope these are of interest to someone, and also hope it's OK to post them here. If there not - remove them.. I have posted them in the Echo thread, but people might not see them in there...
  12. ESB's Masters Preview

    The Masters at Augusta is one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events, this year given more impetus by the not-so-surprising return of Tiger Woods. At the risk of overshadowing a landmark event in the golfing calendar, Woods has pledged to put his previous indiscretions behind him and...
  13. Arsene Wenger: The Gift and The Curse.

    Such is this success of the Arsenal Ethos under Arsene Wenger that those who question him are instantly vilified by the Gunner’s faithful and, believe me, they have a point. No other Premier League manager can boast an unbeaten season, or even claim to have attributed so much to the progression...
  14. United Cleared, Can Continue European Pillage

    Well, anybody could have seen that one coming. No sooner than Le Havre made idol threats to sue Manchester United for all they're worth, A Fifa judge has cleared them of any wrongdoing and allowed them to sign French starlet Paul Pogba immediately. United are usually as immaculate off the pitch...

    Enquiry announced into Southend Utd Big Brother 2009

    News reaches us this evening of an attempt to vote twice in one day in this competition on not one, but two occasions by a well respected and apparently highly regarded member of this board. The evidence mounting up is as follows: The member stands accused of voting single mindedly to oust...

    Problems Mount Up For Rafa

    Where's the firepower now? Selling an unwanted Robbie Keane may have been embarrassing, but it was at least understandable. Not replacing him though? That could be a disaster. Liverpool are out of the FA Cup, but what about the league? As Fernando Torres limped away after 101 minutes of a...

    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

    Arsenal are the architects of their own problems sometimes. Their failure to secure top spot in Group G can be attributed directly to their inability to beat a woeful Fenerbahce side at The Emirates earlier in the campaign. That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

    Gunners Fire Blanks

    How Arsenal could have done with a win here. With two disastrous results behind them and a foreboding clash with Manchester United waiting on Saturday, this was a perfect opportunity to boost morale, on and off the pitch, but it wasn't to be. Fenerbahce, much improved from their humiliating...

    Chelsea Dominant As Villa Crumble

    Crisis? What crisis? Beset by injuries, Chelsea saved their best performance of the season so far for the day when the smart money was on Aston Villa to end that long unbeaten home run of theirs. Luiz Felipe Scolari's walking wounded preserved their record in a magnificent first half before...
  20. Latest on Keegan

    Kevin Keegan was last night seen storming out of Tesco's after only being in there for 20 minutes. He left following lengthy talks with the store manager. He has been quoted as saying "I am of the opinion that when you go to shopping you should be allowed to get on with it without constant...
