    Eat before you buy

    Sepp Blatter

    You can say what you like about Sepp Blatter, and most people do, but he certainly doesn't lack the courage of his convictions. His proposal that football clubs should limit themselves to just five foreign players by 2012 is going to upset some very powerful people. Not that Blatter cares, of...

    Metal Monday Pt.24

    About as old-school as thrash metal can get, Exodus formed in San Francisco 28 years ago by, among others, the now Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett. Exodus are another metal band that seem to go through multitudes of band members but one thing will always remain and that's the speed and...

    Michael Ballack and Andreiy Shevchenko

    After a distinctly underwhelming first season in English football, Michael Ballack and Andreiy Shevchenko were derided as hugely expensive flops, but yesterday, they gave Chelsea a real chance of winning their third title in four years. If they do, it will be the most extraordinary and...

  6. SZ Security Issue

    With knowledge that this is a multi-moderated public forum, from outside England overnight, I enquire of the moderators, quite how secure "Private Messages" may be, or if there may be any known way they could be viewed or potentially viewed by the mods themselves.

    This Weeks Burning Question - What's hot & what's not at Weddings?

    Well, as you will have seen, MrB got married yesterday and we wish him all the best for the future. A great day was had by all, and in true spirit there were plenty of drinks flowing. Many of us met at Southend Vic where MrB had kindly laid on a coach to travel to the outback where the...

    The fbm view and ratings - Barnsley

    HANDICAP FOOTBALL LETS BLUES DOWN AGAIN Southend slipped to their 10th home defeat of the season as another nervous display at the Hall handed a huge boost to their visiting relegation rivals. In the early stages there was little to separate the two teams. Barnsley were missing several first...

    It's coming ...

    "The United States has overstepped its borders in all spheres - economic, political and humanitarian, and has imposed itself on other states. Local and regional wars did not get fewer, the number of people who died did not get less but increased. We see no kind of restraint - a hyper-inflated...

    What have been the reasons?

    I haven't done this as a poll as I dare say we all, in our humble opinions, have a multitude of reasons and possibly to many to put as options in a poll. In no particular order mine are. 1. The inclusion of McCormack in midfield. A no nonsense box to box battler that's given us that...

    New Record

    I don't know whether this has been mentioned in the multitude of posts this morning, but (apparently) out of the 81 teams in the League that have played Manchester United, Southend United are the only team to have a positive record!!

    Due to the nature of the quality of driving in England a new scheme has been devised in order to identify poor drivers. From the middle of May 2006 those drivers who are seen:- -overtaking in dangerous places; -hovering within one inch of the car in front; -stopping sharply; -speeding in...
