  1. What really happened in Vegas

    The official story has been changed several times and is still does not add up. Many of you will have been to Vegas and know how your are watched night and day. So to follow on from a debate started on the Trump thread........Here goes for starters Why haven't we seen any CCTV of Paddock on...
  2. How long does Brown get...?

    For all his faults, Ron has been a pretty good judge of when to get rid of his managers. He doesn't panic and tends to give them time to turn things around. That said, he's invested heavily this year and so far it's looking unlikely he'll get any reward. If results don't improve at what point...

Last night I attended a networking event in central London for building contractors, developers etc. The regional development Director from British Land, confirmed directly to me, they are...
  6. Memory Lane 20 years ago today ....

    ...... instead of reflecting on the previous day's point against the bottom team, we were looking back at the previous evening's 3-2 home defeat by Manchester City including Kinkladze and Rosler. Williams (unlike yesterday) and Rammell got a couple of late goals. Crowd was only about 1,500...
  7. Oxley

    Latest scapegoat for the Southend faithful,this guy is often exposed but some think he should be pulling off worldies every 10 minutes. Blimey this guy just like every keeper in the entire world needs protection...lay off him for gods sake.

    Football socks - up or down?

    Can anyone explain to me the current trend of professionals pulling their socks up over their knees? Is it a fashion thing or is there some sort of benefit from doing so?
  9. David Gest

    David Gest sadly passed away today in London Hotel. I really liked him as a celebrity that didn't take himself or other celebrities seriously. He was really funny in the jungle, and Big Brother. Yes he was a bit weird, and had that crazy marriage to Liza Minnelli. In the jungle he would have all...
  10. US Presidential election thread

    OK - I think we need a thread that doesn't specifically focus on Trump, and we also need a thread with a few ground rules. I'm not sure why but I always tend to get quite involved with the US elections (and US politics in general). This year's election is bound to be fascinating, and you can...

  12. Are the bad times over

    I Think ist time for Referees to stop all the pulling and tugging going on in Games.

    I think its time for Referees stop turning a blind eye on the pulling and tugging that goes on in Football Matches know.The Laws of the game if you pull someone or tugging its a free kick.Most of this goes on in the penalty area on corners. Referees are not pulling players up for this.Rules...

    IF Sainsbury pull out?

    So "rumours" are still circling and growing regarding Sainsbury possibly pulling out of the stadium deal. If so, what would you like to see happen? Would you be happy for Ron to remain and seek an alternate retailer to take the project on? Baring in mind the whole planning process would have...
  16. Removing a fridge

    All, I need to remove a fridge from a very narrow gap - in fact the old fridge was "kicked" into place as the dumbass plasterer boarded the wall when I told him not to. There is literally NO space between wall and fridge. Now I've been told I can't chop it in half with a chainsaw - has anyone...
  17. Latest Rumours Sainsbury's no go on new builds

    I have heard today that Sainsbury's are pulling the plug on all new retail developments and taking a huge hit against this as well, not sure how this will affect the new stadium

    Tesco superstore on former B&Q site - a big no-no

    According to the front of Southend's Echo (as shown on FB), plans for a new Tesco in Southend are now not going ahead. Wonder if that might affect Sainsbury's need to get their store built? In all seriousness, I don't think it will, I firmly believe they are in too deep now to pull the plug...
  19. Wow what a team......

    I was just pondering.......Southend have had some great talents pulling on the shirt over the years but if can you imagine what this team would have played like? All of the above players have played for Southend in the not too distant past.... Banks, Best, Hurst, Greaves, Moore...

    "Moped Cars"

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/20451602 As of next year, this car will be legal for 16 year olds to drive on the road with a moped license. Personally I think its a stupid idea: 1) Who in their right mind would pay £9,999 (plus insurance!) for a years use of something which isn't even a car...
