    Too much football over Christmas?

    There's been a lot of talk over the last week about the festive fixture schedule and whether we play too much football in this country, with managers complaining, particularly those from the top Premier League clubs (who ironically have the biggest squads). I do have some sympathy with them...

    Question Are you prepared to physically help with "sprucing up" Roots Hall during close season

    Are you prepared to physically help with "sprucing up" Roots Hall during close season Simple really. Following on from the "Roots Hall" thread, would you be prepared to become part of a "Supporters Inc" team to help with some organised running repairs and general "sprucing up" of the...

    Daggers fans worried of trouble

    I have just popped onto the Dagenham&Redbridge fans forum (Don't worry i showered afterwards) and some of their fans are pretty worried that we might cause trouble. To me this is very interesting as i have never seen us cause trouble (physically). I wasn't at the Daggers away game last year, but...

    Official Match Thread Southend vs Maidstone - FA Youth Cup

    Currently 2-1 up thanks to two early goals from Jason Williams. Heard some great things about Williams and looks a very physically strong player. Will hopefully do us a job in a few years time!
  5. Australia - still stuck in the 70s

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/13/julia-gillard-howard-sattler-interview Pretty shocking stuff from the otherside of the world. Firstly the Australian Prime Minster's is insulted physically at a fund raiser, and then a "shock jock" questions her about her partner's sexuality...

    Out of the Play Off Positions

    Hopefully only temporarily, but Northampton's defeat of Burton moves us down one place to eighth. A draw would have suited us better, especially as Burton have played one game more than us. However, on balance a day off should give our players a chance to recover and re-energise both physically...

    FWG are 25 this year...

    I guess some if not most of you know that my firm FWG is one of, if not the main sponsor of this site. As such, zoners get a 10% discount from any services we provide. Now we've been in business 25 years this year and so, for this month only, we are offering a 25% reduction from our fees for...

Threw tomatoes at a Serie A manager. Threw Water Balloons at a Serie A disciplinary hearing. Started a fight with 4...

  11. Adebayo Akinfenwa

    I was amazed when I walked into Roots Hall today to see the state of Adebayo Akinfenwa. I simply could not believe the size of the guy! He was huge and when I say huge, I don't mean muscle, I mean fat. How can this guy play football? I'm not joking when I say that the first thought that went...
  12. Mohsni on "last chance"

    Just listened to PS interview from last night... * Mohsni's 'whole demeanour' is not right. * Has been internally disciplined financially and told to 'get help' after the Orient game. * Ramadan having a big affect on him (so leave him out completely). * Decision to play him 'backfired', though...
  13. Alex Woodyard

    Just wanted to know peoples opinions on Alex Woodyard. He started 3 games last season, regularly featured for the reserves and has been very involved in pre season this year. I cannot see what he brings to the side, he cant pass, is not very big so physically not the best. Yet Sturrock & co seem...

    The beginning.

    OK, the shock to remove Tilly as our manager was felt as much by me as by anybody on here. I suppose the quantity of messages on here in support of Tilly was to be expected, as is the anti-Ron stuff. I honestly didn't think he would actually get rid of Tilson unless we had an appalling start to...
