  1. There but for the Grace of God....

    Been a bit busy today so have been out of touch but have just seen that Aldershot have gone into admin. I know there are some on here who will probably not shed too much of a tear after Floodlightgate but I, for one, will wish them well and hope they survive as one football fan to another; for...

  3. FAO Southend Fans

    Hi there. I'm looking for a player who may have played for Southend down the years. I don't know the name of the player, just the teams he possibly played for. This player only played for four clubs during his whole career and one of team is likely to be Southend. I'm aware this doesn't narrow...

    Memory Lane BLUES Thrash OLDHAM/New Ground on hold

    Well it’s not exactly “Breaking News” as this news broke sixty years ago when in Season 1951-52 Southend beat Oldham 5-0 in the second round of the Cup while an announcement was made about the new stadium (Roots Hall) being delayed. This how it was in early December 1951...

    Twitter followers...do you follow anybody you don't like and why???

    Following on from the Glasgow Shrimper thread in the main forum, and somebody mentioning the fact of why do people follow him if they don't agree or like his tweet's, I got stuck in a deep trance for all of five minutes at the desk, trying to understand why we follow people we don't like. The...

    The A13 from Tarpots to Kiln Road

    Blimey, I'm on a roll with rants atm! Anyone been up or down Bread and Cheese in the last few days? What a joke! There's bits of bus lanes being put in on different sides of the road, so there's a bus lane going west, down the hill but at the lights there's a bus lane on the Southend bound side...

    Some time ago someone posted the link to pathe news which had newsreel of Southend v Bristol Rovers Cup match in 1952, I've now reached this point in my research so I thought you might like to read the story to go with the film. Hopefully the following link for pathe news works...

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Question RM to fine Sturrock a month's wages ?

    A tough one this for Ron. On the one hand, he can't afford to let the cleaning lady's lawyers think that he has anything less than the highest standards of moralilty and must be seen to crack down on any behaviour that strays from the straight and narrow. Can he? On the other hand, he can't...

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...
