    Question 2016 - How Was It For You?

    Not spotted a similar thread so thought I'd start it for a bit of quick reflection before we properly get going with 2017. Have seen something similar I think in previous years and always find it interesting - we all have a common bond in SUFC but outside of that all have different lives with...

    It is reported that Mr Tindermann's of the EU Court of Human Rights hopes to force through an EU Directive that no photographs of convicted rapists, paedophiles and the like should be published in the media.

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    Question Anyone ever had a book published?

    I have a long held ambition to write a book and am now finally starting to do something about it. My theme is not unique, it will be on getting to the 92 current league grounds, but I am not anticipating writing a best-seller, more that I want to get something 'out of my system'. I had always...

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...

    The East Stand

    Am reading the recently published book '56', the story of the Bradford fire. A truely horrific event and re-watching the news reels on it on Youtube is a heart-rending experience. That old Bradford stand was a relic from the past and was hosting its last match that day in 1985. Now, I am sure...

  16. Ian Walker RIP

    It is with great regret that we announce the death of Ian Walker, a well-known and loyal supporter of Southend United. Ian passed away suddenly and his death comes as a great shock to all that knew him. He was a man of great principles who always had time for a chat and his football family...
