    Slipped Disc - now that f-ing hurts!

    Who's had one? I have and it's the most intense pain I have ever experienced. Currently seeing a physio who used to treat the Saracens and he's hopeful of some kind of recovery - if you do a office job then take my advice and take up pilates - you don't want what I've had, trust me! Be...

    Who has the best ever voice?

    Was thinking earlier when a Karen Carpenter song came on the radio. That was one lady who I think had a truly wonderful and unique voice. Yes, in many ways when you hear her sing it can make you feel sad even if she is singing a happy song given what happened to her at such a tragically young...

    OK, who would you like to see come in during the summer, and what positions do we need to improve, or cover? I'll start with a GK; Lawrence Vigouroux, Really impressed when we played Swindon, they have been relegated so am sure he will be looking to move on? Heard he's a bit 'temperamental'...

    Two things I want to know.

    There are in fact loads of things I want to know, but for the moment two of them are driving me mad.... 1. What is that strange container thing for on the Cliffs along the seafront opposite the casino. It's painted in red white and blue? 2. The A130 slip road down to Howe Green was resurfaced...

    Some Happy News

    One of the murderers of Lee Rigby lost two teeth whilst being "restrained" by prison officers. Hopefully someone will cut off his thumbs next. Who's says prisons are too soft? Lets hope the murdering scum is in lots of pain and in constant fear for his safety.

  13. Hunt back for Bradford. Injured players update.

    Noel Hunt is back at training and he should be ready to play a part in the Bradford game. Weston and McLaughlin are both suffering bad ankle bruising and are still in pain when pressure is put on the ankle. Deegan, Worrall and Timlin are almost back, but will not be risked in the behind closed...
  14. Our ticketing system - why is it so complicated

    A little bit of light relief . Our ticket system has one main purpose- how difficult can it be? I am a season ticket holder and last week bought tickets for last night’s match for myself and two friends , also season ticket holders. I bought them on the phone and was told they would be...

    Official Match Thread Southend United vs Barnsley

    655368462525689856 655368462542467072 Wordsworth for Deegan the only change, Worrall not on the bench so presumably picked up an injury which may explain Timlin playing through the pain.

    Jack Wilshere: Arsenal & England midfielder suffers hairline fracture

    Poor old Jack Wilshere appears to be one of those players who just can't avoid injury. It just seems to follow him around. I wonder if he is very unlucky, or do Arsenal's medics and coaching staff have to accept some of the blame and pain? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/33801783

  19. Pubey's DIY thread #23151

    So I'm planning to take a week off work in August to paint our house. Picked out a nice colour (Dulux Weathershield Sandstone) which is a standard waterbased masonry paint. At the back we've got a mixture of cast-iron downpipes, a PVC soil pipe and some other guttering down pipes. The previous...
