    Primary Education

    Throwing this question out to the SZ family.... My daughter who is now 4/5 months needs a placement at a primary school as you need to look at options early to get a place, we live in Rayleigh (as hockleys favourite son I am only on loan to Rayleigh and some day to return) and we are looking at...
  2. Ref Watch ..... Bury A

    Matches against Bury in recent years have been close. Our last five matches at Gigg Lane have seen three 1-1 draws and a 1-0 apiece. Our last four home matches have been draws. The referee in charge tomorrow is Tony Harrington from Cleveland a third year League referee. His first couple of...
  3. Ref Watch ...... Burton A

    As we look to improve on our miserable record of one win in six matches against Burton, we have, for the third League match running, a second year ref with a below average card count. This time it's Tony Harrington from Cleveland. His first season went well enough and this season seems to be...

    TBV placement for restricted opening matches

    Posted this comment on the thread about whether TBV should be in the East or the West but no-one picked up on it so am re-posting it. I really think it's something worth thinking about - Just a thought on last night, I wonder if it is worth asking the club if they will reserve a section -...

    Cheap Gifts to Keep the Doris Happy

    Dear all, I was thinking when I received 2 PMs in the space of a week and had to turn down a beer before a Southend game due to prior commitments with the bird that I should start sorting my priorities. She is a good lass. However, not comparable to football. I hate that she does not like...

    The A-League

    Here is an article from a Queensland Roar fans website I go on now and again. They go into the last game of the regular season (they have playoffs, or 'finals' over there) with 4 teams (out of 8 in the league) level on points at the top of the table. Quite an amazing finish, half of the league...

    The fbm report - Carlisle

    SOUTHEND CRUMBLE TO THE CUMBRIANS For the first time since the home game against Colchester on April 6th, Southend failed to score in a game (including pre season friendlies) as they went down 1-0 at home to Carlisle. Blues missed the opportunity to go top of the table in a keenly contested...
  11. Ticket Problems

    Anybody else have these problems? I missed the deadline for my original placement by a matter of days, so had to book a new season ticket... something i have no problem with whatsoever as it remains entirely my fault. I checked the ticket three times and went to my seat, only to find it had...
  12. Interview Tips

    Shocking as it may seem... but at the age of 22 I am about to have my first "proper" interview for a summer placement as part of my masters... quite rightly I am bricking it and don't really feel very prepared (although deep down i know roughly what i want to say). So has anyone got any tips...

    I'm currently on my work placement year here in Bournemouth. Since my uni mates moved out at the end of the June I have been joined in the house by 4 foreign students, 3 Swiss n 1 from Syria. To my disappointment they consist of 3 blokes n 1 middle aged lady. However, the other night they...

    New Southend radio station

    I know Reading Shrimper has already posted some information about the four organisations bidding for the new licence for a radio station in Southend, but seeing as so many people on here are so fed up with coverage of the team on local radio, particularly Essex FM, I thought I'd look at the four...

    The Da Vinci Code

    Whilst reading the Da Vinci code I had a strange brainwave that has escalated into a quest of illuminati proportions. In the Autumn of 2003 Southend Unearthed the burial mound of a saxon king. This coincided with the placement of Tilson being named temporary manager and then manager of the...
