    Popularity Contest

    This board has been running for years, as we know by the sheer fact that Napster continues to dig posts out from almost before Fossetts Farm ever first got mentioned. In that time some users have clocked up a wealth of posts. In my opinion, they have all added plenty of value over the years for...

    With less than two days to the start of the season I’ve got to say that the response to the forthcoming Prediction League has been amazing. The popularity has been growing season by season but perhaps it’s the “promotion factor” but already 67 have posted their...

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...

    So what exactly DO we want then?

    This board is about opinions and this is mine. It is clear to me that there is an enormous amount of people on here that have not got a clue what it is they actually want. Well, let me rephrase that; they do, but can't see they what they actually want is impossible. They are all like one of...

    Despite...

    the current form, the dreadfully dreary football played, financial questions, popularity of Chairman, new stadium taking 27 years and counting and a general bout of recent depression, Southend United is still, without a shadow of a doubt - the greatest football club in the world!! Anyone from...
  8. Memory Lane Farewell to a fellow shrimper r.i.p.

    RICHARD WILLIAM WHITWELL 12/12/1956 to 28/12/2011. Yesterday I attended the funeral at Southend Crematorium of 'Winkie' a fan of well over 40 years who had a really unusual claim to fame. In the promotion season of 1971-72 when Blues played at Barrow he travelled up by coach, fell asleep on it...
  9. Who knows Daniel Peat?

    I ask as I have just read the 442 season preview for League 2. DP gave the 'fan's view' and proclaimed: 'Manager's popularity - not very popular seeing as he's replacing the legend that is ST. More popular than RM, but then who isn't'. 'Where will you finish - I'll take 22nd'. 442 comment -...

    Slot Machines Online

    Anyone got into these. Noticed they are a big deal in the shops at the moment with the popularity definitely on the increase to my untrained eye! I have started playing online and think it is much more fun than Roulette. Also the potential to win big sums of money with bonus features that help...
  13. TV Shows You Loved, But Apparently Nobody Else Did...

    Following on from my mention of Jericho on the "If it all ended" thread, What TV shows did you enjoy but were inevitable cancelled?

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...
