  1. Southend United - EFL Trophy

    Rather than continuing all the future opinions on the Col Ewe post match thread, I thought it's about right that I start a thread about the Paint Pot Tophy, or the Chekatrade Trophy or the EFL Trophy. (pick your own guys). So the draw starts tomorrow night (around 6:30pm) before the England V...

    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...

    First half was about as much fun as watching paint dry.Apart from Defoe's goal and Hart's comical mistake.

    Question Would Southend have made it to Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy

    I was gutted to get knocked out at the area semi-final stage. But to lose in the Area final to a lower league side must be gutting. I wish I could've been a fly on the wall with all those smug Millwall fans who were singing "We're going to Wembley!!" during the semi-final at Roots Hall in...

  11. 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...
  12. Good Luck

    Good Luck this Saturday Shrimpers, losing a few years ago to us in the semi's and then the Paint Pot Final must of hurt but your fans at Wembley that day were a credit to the club, the respect the majority showed towards Adam Dugdale is something I will remember. It will be good to have you...

    Wembley Athmosphere Lets get it right

    Super support at the hall last night now we need to recreate it at Wembley. My aim by posting this is lets don't just make it a day out lets make loads of noise. When we were at Wembley for the Paint Trophy the thing that grated with me the most more so than the result was how quiet we were with...

    Vanishing Spray and other ways to fix football

    Despite its obvious benefits in the world cup, the football league aren't sure about it and will only use it in the JPT this year. "The spray will not be used yet by the Football League, which intends to hold trials of its effectiveness in next season's Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Football...

    New Badge Concept....

    After the Everton crest debacle & rumours of a new SUFC badge, I thought I'd see what kind of new design I could come up with. Unfortunately, the idea I had in my mind didn't quite match the final result :blush: due to only having access to MS Paint at work lol. I'd be able to create a...

    DIY tips

    I am redecorating the house at the moment so thought I would start a thread to share collective knowledge..... Cover your roller tray with a plastic bag before filling with paint. That way you don't have to wash it up when you are done....
