    Best Adam Barrett moments

    The best way to celebrate a legend is the reminisce... I'll start with my favourite - his 2 goals at Notts County in 2004, his fourth and fifth goal in five games.

    The classic away days!

    I have no doubt this has been done to death before..but you can never reminisce about great days too much! Reading the memories of Nobbler & co about two visits to Newport in 68 ..what other memorable away days come to mind. A few starters to think about. Lincoln '69 (was too young but heard...

    Office politics

    I just sent out a fairly innocuous chaser e-mail and within 5 minutes, in a move not entirely unreminiscent of Hitler's annexation of the Sudetenland, someone who is on holiday has just annexed a whole department on the back of it. Whilst I play kingmaker and decide whether to sanction this...

    Memory Lane John McKinven v Bill Garner 1:7 - poll added

    Vying to join Sammy McCrory and Peter Watson in the next round, we have John McKinven and Bill Garner. Your reminiscences please.
  7. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Stockport County

    What a game!!! This is my first post... Listening to 'Player,' for my first live game after 15 years of being a Southend supporter... I am sitting in Newman a mining town in Western Australia... Despite the controversy, loving every bit of it... including that I am now receiving of air BBC Essex...

    Question Old football programmes

    Having a mass 'loft clearout', you know the ones where your back is on the verge of giving way, your sweating profusely and you've smacked your head on the same f**king wooden beam 3 times over. Half the time is spent being nostalgic the other half shouting 'What about this? Do you want this...

    Suicide Workshop

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/8568850.stm How long before it is a norm of our society? I find it scary that so many of the current arguments are reminiscent of Nazi Germany (http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/timeline/euthanasia.htm) I think the fact that 60%-odd of palliative...

    Andy Ansah

    Picked this up off the net.....quite a good read for those who remember the legends of the early 90's... Andy Ansah’s wing wizardry for Southend United between 1990 and 1996 helped propel the club into the upper echelons of English football, as the Shrimpers bagged back-to-back promotions from...
  11. Green Street Erupts, And Not a Hobbit In Sight

    Scenes that would make your casual hobbit masquerading as a hooligan squeal were on show tonight, as West Ham entertained Millwall in more ways than one. It was the draw that made half of East London wince and the other half salivate, the draw that made the Metropolitan Police kicked into...

    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...

    Memory Lane: Postponements

    Reading about the debacle of Tuesday's postponement and the uncertainty surrounding the Swindon game has reminded me of the awful feeling of arriving in a strange town after a long journey to be confronted with the grim news that the game you'd anticipated seeing is... off. I remember driving...

    The fbm view - Canvey

    I'm not going to do a report as such, but will offer just a few comments about tonights performance... if you can call it that having drawn 0-0 against a poor Canvey outfit. This time last year a side containing such stalwart strikers as Billy Paynter and Matt Harrold thrashed Canvey 6-1. We...

    Chelsea fans will feel crushed today

    Thanks guys, really glad you liked it! Here's the follow-up: High up near the rafters of the Luzhniki Stadium, as the early morning rain washed away the tears of his expensively assembled superstars, the Super Tsar himself, Roman Abramovich, sat disconsolately wondering what might have been...

    Hip Hop Tuesday

    One of the all-time classics Pete Rock and CL Smooth - T.R.O.Y This track was inspired by the death of their close friend "Trouble" T. Roy of Heavy D & the Boyz in 1990. The song was the lead single off their debut album, Mecca and the Soul Brother, released in 1992, and later became a staple...
  18. Maher - Lets....

    ....give him a great reception on Saturday, this club means a lot to him and he's given us great service and didn't deserve what happened at Brighton - our most committed and probably best player now Freddy's gone. I'd also hope those coming back with the Gills on Saturday get receptions akin...
  19. The (Very Long) Diary of a Happy Fan

    Tuesday 3rd - Just come back from the pub, nice chat with Ron Mack, told him that I couldn't afford any more trips to watch the Blues this season, especially as out of 5 trips I had managed 2 draws and 3 defeats. Friday 6th - Incredible, just told my son that I hoped we wouldn't give away an...

    Southend vs Southampton

    BATTLING BLUES GET WIN AT LAST What a difference a week makes. Morale and spirit hit a new low after last Saturday's abject performance against a very ordinary Wolves side. The local press ran a feature through the week revolving around the supporters views on what had gone wrong. Some -...
