  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...

  3. Relative form ?

    Anyone seen the match stats for Walsalls win at Rochdale last night ? Not totally disimilar from ours against Walsall... and Rochdale had won their previous two games ! Yes the nature of our performance wasnt great but we probably ran into a decent team and with an improved team selection im...
  4. Freaky eaters and/or refusers

    I was going to post this in the fruit thread.... I have a nephew (fully grown) who won't eat any fruit of any variety - stupid boy, they're like nature's sweets. Also barely touches veg or anything green. Me - there is very little I won't scoff...not a fan of fresh cream, but if push came to...

    Petrol in a diesel car.

    A relative has just filled their diesel car with unleaded and driven off chugging to a halt very soon afterwards. Is the engine likely to be ****ed?

    This'll mess with your head a little bit...

    It's all relative Click "Skip the Ad", then press Start. Mindblowing.
  7. Sturrock to Plymouth or any Scottish club who sacks a manager

    Apparently it was Mr Brent , the man trying to buy Plymouth, who instructed Peter Ridsdale to sack Peter Reid. This I was told by a relative who lives in Devon. Now just been on the footie rumours site and there is a posting of this happening and have assurances this wasn't written by my...

    Dublin, on a relative budget

    If there is such thing as a cheap break in Dublin, it's what I'm looking for! Going with a group of mates at the end of March, just wondering if anyone has been there: 1) Where are good places to eat? 2) Where is good to drink? *Priority* 3) What is worth checking out while we're there? Ta.

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Port Vale.

    Well match day is upon us yet again. Whilst most of the talk has been about Tilly's pay off and Sturrocks need for a striker , its been a strange week of relative quiet on the zone . This has been slow news week that is for sure. There has even been talk that V festival will affect southend...

    Which name do you feel has increased public/media interest in their sport the most throughout the 90s relative to the sport they play and the interest prior to their perceived 'dominance'?
  12. Who's Going Home In An FA Sponsored Aston?

    With just 90 minutes of football seperating the thirty prospective England internationals from South Africa, which seven unfortunate players will find themselves on stand-by? Michael Carrick: Unfortunately for the Manchester United midfielder, England have a relative embarrassment of riches in...

    An open letter to Spurs fans

    Dear Spuds I see from the celebrations you enjoyed last night (and the numerous Facebook updates from your kind) that finishing in the top 20% of the Premier League for the first time in a generation is like winning the Euopean Cup to you. I'm glad that has put into perspective your ambitions...

    Women try and smuggle a dead body.

    I had to have a laugh at this story, how can you hope to smuggle a stiff in a wheelchair on board a plane? Apparently the bloke had been dead for 24 hours. Being in Liverpool I'm also surprised his wheelchair still had tyres.
  15. Paterson interview from SSN

    Interesting article. Southend supporters have certainly been put through the wringer this season, with the very existence of their club hanging in the balance at one stage. It appeared such issues had been laid to rest once a £2.1million tax bill was settled with HM Revenues and...
  16. Whats your fine?

    Ok, here it is, the quiz that has swept through Facebook. If you've done any of the following you add it to your tally. (note- not the AMOUNT of times you have done any of them, just if you have then add once.) Then at the end you state what your fine is... (the maximum fine is £1665) Smoked...

    Christmas Weigh Ins....

    I propose we all weigh ourselves on Xmas Eve and then again on New Years Day and see who puts on the most weight over the festive period. Also who puts on most weight relative to their current weight. A bit of banter and a good laugh hopefully. Obviously don't enter if you are worried about your...

    You're All Gay

    The English language is in a beautiful state of flux. Words change, they alter, they evolve. The word 'gay', for example, used to be an adjective to mean 'happy' or 'carefree'. Then it became a noun for men who liked colours before it finally settled into today's position as a contemptuous word...

    Only a man would attempt this!

    Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife... A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this to a forum: Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest... The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was...
  20. The Scot Who Cried Wolf

    Sir Alex Ferguson, even more than he likes red wine, likes to moan about referee's. He does it so often now that many just ignore him, like the old relative at christmas who's hell bent on retelling his childhood. Well, Ferguson might actually have a point with his ranting this evening... It's...
