    Can we beat the bookies?

    I like a gamble, I also know I have lost a good few quid over the years. However in the field of Southend United football club this forum should have the world leaders in knowledge of this club. This also applies to supporters of other clubs too. Lets face it , I dont think there is a bookies...

    OD Thread - Season 22

    Tough away game to kick off the season to someone in my FC league who I typically beat in FC and lose in OD - he wasn't prepared to make it easy for me in FC so we're at full strength here and game is in the balance. Could do with Vusi getting out as Westcarr will push RR along End of Over 24...

    Question Updating the swear filter on SZ?

    I'd like to propose we update the list of words to be in keeping with the Pakistani government's banned words list. Please have a read of the list to see what you think: http://t.co/QxqLx3Pv (18+ some rude words) You may argue 'drunken' and 'athletes foot' are unnecessary to ban... also...

    Student Protests - November 2011

    It seems the ol' Bill can use plastic bullets: <link> I really hope that they don't have to use them, but I guess after London riots and last year's protests they need to be prepared. It will be a sad day when we have to start using such tactics.

    England poppy ban...

    Seems like FIFA just love to upset us http://uk.news.yahoo.com/anger-fifas-england-poppy-ban-110259627.html If we're playing this at home, at Wembley then why should our national team NOT be allowed to wear this symbol on the eve of Rememberance Sunday? Does it honestly offend anyone, or are...
  7. Should we do a Hartlepool?

    Just read an interesting article in the Mail regarding attendancies in the Football League. The article mentioned that Hartlepool have 5900 season ticket holders! Hartlepool made an offer pre season that all season tickets would cost £100 if they broke the 4000 sales mark by July. I personaly...
  8. 'Happy Hour'? last night

    Really don't want to put a downer on last night but the Club really needs to get its act together on the promotions side. I thought the £1 a pint idea was a good one and the timings right, £1 a pint 6-6:45 which then means you've got a crowd in with an hour to go before kick off who will then...

    Yorkshire 3 Peak Challenge - Shameless Sponsorship Plug

    Hello one and all, This is a shameless plug to help myself and some follow work colleagues in our challenge to tackle 24 miles across the highest peaks on the Yorkshire Dales on the 16th July 2011. Doesn't sound too bad does it? Well, to us very unprepared and unfit trekkers we might as...

    Memory Lane Bristol Rovers Cup match

    Some time ago someone posted the link to pathe news which had newsreel of Southend v Bristol Rovers Cup match in 1952, I've now reached this point in my research so I thought you might like to read the story to go with the film. Hopefully the following link for pathe news works...
  12. Paul Sturrock : Will he walk ?

    IMHO Sturrocks has pulled off a massive miracle to get us anywhere a play off position. Back in August he had no squad, no money and was having to cancel friendlies. Sure some of the players he has brought in since have proved to be disappointing but others we must be desperate to get sign...

    Regarding W Block atmosphere!

    Hi all, just a post that really needs to be done. A big thanks to Smiffy for his hard work over the seasons on the drum, not many people will do it but fair play and what a great job he has done in doing it. With no one else offering to take over being the drummer, i took over in 2nd half of...
  14. OD - Week 5

    Big games in the BB household today. BATTY SHRIMPERS v Crantock 2 100% records come head-to-head as we (3rd) take on the side in 2nd. He has 2 monster players, a 489k wage NZ bowler, and a 400k wage SL bat. He's also got 5 other players earning 40k+. Juggled the batting order a bit, as the...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...
  19. Fitness levels

    A lot of the gloom and doom on here is mis-placed. Realistically, this was always going to be a transitional season and hopes of a quick return to League 1 were fanciful. If Sturrock pulls that off with the barriers he's had put in place, he really will be an all-time legend. But I am very...

    ...still haven't been paid, how does that make you feel? Would you want to do something about it? What can we as fans do? The last we heard, we'd been told that they would be properly paid. Yet, we know that Tilly alleged a few weeks ago that he hadn't been paid since April. These...
