    Pre Gig Thread - Moyet at The Cliffs Today

    OK, in the absence of a match due to the multi-talented superstars of Oldham going off globe-trotting there is one event for Shrimpers today in Southend - Moyet at The Cliffs. Hopefully a rendition of 'Blue' will make it to the set list. Any other Shrimpers going? Pre-match pub is The Cliffs...

    The Chinese Fortune (not cookies)

    This is just madness... Cristiano Ronaldo was offered (and turned down) £1.6m per week to play in China, with a transfer fee of £257m ! :stunned...

    Bt tv

    I've been looking at getting rid of Sky in favour of BT. For the full package it looks like I'd save a large amount of money, but there seems to be an issue that shouldn't really be there. It seems that you can't have a 2nd box (their equivalent of multi-room) whilst paying for Sky Sports and...
  4. A Field in England

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/filmreviews/10157059/A-Field-in-England-review.html Thought I'd share this: Ben Wheatley's new film available on multi-formats tomorrow, including free on Film4. Excited by this as Down Terrace & Kill List are superb. Won't be for Granny!
  5. * ORM *

    Latest Rumours Unfounded

    I'd just like to confirm that YB and ORM are two completely different people as witnessed by around 100 people at an SZFC Quiz Night. I don't condone his childish picture thread antics. You'd never get me doing that. :happy: YB is the one that does pointless multi quote replies. I, on the other...
  6. And you think we are in trouble

    Just heard on the bbc sports news that Hearts are multi millon pounds in debt .Has put all there squad up for sale and are about to go into administaton and maybe deducted 15 points . At least we are safe at present we have a sugar daddy called Sainsburys and at least we have still got players...
  7. Nike

    With Arsenal dispensing of their services as of 2014/15 season is there any chance we could do the same with Nike? I personally find their kits a bit bland and multi-manufactured and wouldn't mind rid. Do we have a contract with Nike for our kits and if so how long is this for?

    Young driver insurance

    Long story short, but I need to get my 19 y/o daughter out driving again. She's failed a few tests & her confidence was knocked a little, but it seem's a terrible waste of all the time & money invested so far if she gives up now. Myself & her instructor both believe all she needs is practice...
  9. Multi-pack Crisps - What's Your Flava - Tell Me....

    I have yet to come across a multi-pack of mixed flavour crisps that didn't contain at least one flavour that no-one in the family will eat. Here it's Roast Chicken - I have to sneak them into the family by crushing them and using them to top Macaroni- or Cauliflower-Cheese. If you could...
  10. Its Over!

    Right, Its over, all the fuss & drama of the last few days has gone. Sturrock wont be at Wembley in a SUFC capacity, except supporting, Phil Brown is our new manager & will be doing the job RON MARTIN has paid him to do. The finances of Bernie this Bernie that, its nothing new to us, we have...
  11. Ref Watch .... Magic of the Cup Refwatch

    Man in charge of our 1,500th game at Roots Hall is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his fourteenth Southend match in charge...

    Peggy Lokando

    One of the perks of what I currently do to earn a crust, is to get myself to off the beaten track football clubs, and let the multitudes of stay-at-homes know what's happening to their local side. Today was FA Cup day and I was entrusted with covering Brentwood Town's tricky task in the...
  13. Ref Watch ......... Exeter home

    Just when we can do without any suspensions, they send Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his thirteenth Southend match in...

    Coaching for kids - help please!

    Shrimpers I need your help! I am currently doing my FA coaching badges and will soon be seeking football volunteering opportunities with children up to the age of ten or eleven (I have plucked this figure from the air so I am open to suggestions!). I am 24 years old and my relatively short...

    Budget

    time to pack the fags up I reckon 5% above inflation rise from 6 tonight, So thats about 8% or 56P on a 7 quid packet !! Good to see the tax loophole for high end property has been closed though, In the multitude of RM threads I have mentioned that its cheaper for a company to own a building...
  16. Ref Watch ...... Rotherham

    Weather and pitch permitting, the man in charge tomorrow evening is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 8th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. He did absolutely no games at all the season before last which would...

    Club Identity and Motto

    Down the years it has always struck me that Southend United has struggled to really nail down it's identity. This can be observed through the countless times the crest has morphed and the multitude of Blues/Yellows/Turquoise/Whites and Reds!!! the kits have produced. Not to mention how the club...

  20. Ref Watch ..... Burton away

    Can't see it happening myself (buying those very cheap advance rail tickets doesn't seem quite so smart now!) but if it does, the man in charge is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 7th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into...
