    Parking/driving to wembley

    Having been to Wembley many times I have always used the train. This time, with two young children and an uncle with bad arthritis I have decided to drive. Someone recommended a site called Justpark and I have found a residential address with very positive reviews approx 1/2 mile from the ground...

    Hey all, newbie here (obviously) Who am I? A bit about myself, I live in Australia, unfortunately quite a fair distance from Roots Hall. Or any League two ground for that matter so I cant claim to have actually seen a Southend match live. I have a shockingly poor knowledge of football in...
  7. Recommended book: The Nowhere Men by Michael Calvin

    If anyone else was lucky enough to receive this book as a Christmas present then they will probably be enthusing about it too. Written by sportswriter Michael Calvin it is about football scouts and player recruitment. An engrossing read, it compares how scouting has progressed in some clubs so...

    Yes I know podcasts are old school, but I've just started listening to this one (recommended to be by a work colleague) and am hooked :stunned: I'm umming & erring each episode as to whether he's guilty or not. In brief; based in the US, a guy has been locked up for the last 15 years for the...
  9. Memory Lane Old Photos of Southend United.

    As I can only relive my time following Southend in my head, thank God this internet thingy came along and I can look up old videos and Photo's.

    Blues Matchday programme

    I haven't bought a programme for a few seasons, but my son twisted my arm today. I must say, after browsing through it when I got home, that I was pleasantly surprised with the standard and content. One of my tweets was also in there, which was nice to see. Not just the fact it was mine, but...

Public Holiday here on Monday and taking Tuesday as a day in lieu though the company probably owes me a month...

    Following on from Brown's appearance on Talk Sport this morn. He said "We ARE under Embargo, but as we only have 11 registered players I can still sign another 9. I have recently signed up 4 or 5 young lads to bolster the squad and recommended Dan Bentley to Peter Taylor for the England under...

    Her Birthday - The Bloke Dilemma

    It's Saturday and all I have got her is a bracelet. I'd like to spend 100-250 to finish the gift off. The problem is I have no chance to get anywhere other than Canary Wharf Shopping Centre as we are away first thing after work tomorrow. My only options are I go and find bits and bobs after...
