    STAR WARS thread - for those who have seen it and want an outlet to talk about it!

    SPOILER ALERT!! Not in this post per se, but definitely in the thread. I've seen it, I loved it. I knew I was a SW geek but didn't realise the film would have this effect on me. I've been grinning like the Cheshire Cat ever since 2.45am yesterday when I finished watching it. My head is...

    Random musings on our signings so far

    It's a small sample size but all three signings are League Two players. No fringe players dropping down from higher leagues in search of regular football. No non-league stars looking to better themselves. No past-it pros hanging on for one last pay day. All sideways moves from players in their...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend united v Gillingham JPT trophy 1st round

    Well what a difference a year makes. This time last year we would have been not overly bothered about this tournemant and would have been eyeing up another shot at the play-offs and a route back into the championsip. Gillingham respectively would have been looking to finish comfortably...

    'The Road To Binfield Pier'

    Me and The Captain have been discussing a homage to Orwell's 'The Road To Wigan Pier' with some contemporary musings on the state of the nation today, based on our social encounters and exchanges with our public. To set the scene for this one, I wish to tell you how The Captain once taught your...

    Rambling musings when you wake up slightly hungover with not enough sleep.

    Damn, it doesn't matter what time I go to bed (2.30am) and how much I've had to drink the night before (plenty). I still wake up at 6.30 even on a Sunday and well before the alarm clock which is set for 8.30 to wake up a girl I was out with last night as she is going sailing all day today and...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...

    A New Dawn

    I wake early. The early morning mist of a Summer’s day is readily burnt by the glowing yellow sun rising over south Suffolk’s gently rolling fields. Next doors much despised cockerel, 300 yards away and out of rifle range, announces the event with gusto. I amble downstairs and let out Shrimper...

    Battrick Musings

    i was looking at my team, and looking at the others in my league, and was thinking how it was hard to judge as a contest. It seems most teams have gone for 4 or 5 players thats theyve trained the bollox off (2 that are 30K and then 2 or 3 that are 40-50k) and then the rest are all 6-8k players...
  9. The blog...

    Hello I started a first time buyer blog a couple of weeks ago, but SUFC has come and hijacked my thoughts! If anyone's interested in my musings of the season, then you'll find it here: Longpier Blog Leave a comment there if you like it. Cheers

    Articles & Awards...

    Wow, three new stories on the OS this afternoon. First of all, SUFC won the League Managers' Association prize for the performance of the week, and Tilly got to pick up a nice little trophy: Tilly looks into the Crystal Ball... Second, Tilly gives his weekly musings before the visit of...

    Some Cheese for the Weekend

    Che Wilson&#39;s musings are on the official site here... Wilson looking to continue home form Whilst some of Dave&#39;s comments are a trifle erratic (e.g. <span style='color:blue'>&quot;The Blues have won their last four encounters, conceding just two goals in the process...&quot;</span> -...

    Sponsors&#39; Evening

    Went to the sponsors evening on behalf of the SUFC Exiles last night for our sponsorship of Leon Cort's shirt last season.  A most enjoyable evening it was too! Brian Wheeler said that Dave & Marisa would give us the signed shirts of our sponsored player and introduce us to the player... so I'm...
