  1. Play off semi finals

    Don't want to remotely curse things but am planning for work and wouldn't want to miss them if we got into the play offs. I know when the final would be but does anyone know about the semi's? Even the weeks that they are in would be helpful!
  2. Michael Barrymore suing Essex Police

    I see that Barrymore is claiming £2.5m form Essex police for wrongful arrest after Stuart Lubbock was found dead in is pool (allegedly) Can't see why the police were remotely suspicious. I mean just because the homeowner and two of his friends bundle up some items and do a runner as the...
  3. Video Forum after the game on Saturday

    Hello all I'm thinking of setting up a live Video Forum after the game on Saturday to discuss the match. Has anyone used Google + before? You can have up to 10 people in a "virtual video room" - thought it particularly useful for ex-pats who couldn't get to the game to chat with those who...

    Is anyone remotely concerned ?

    Inland revenue still over our shoulders. Losing tens of thousands monthly. Have we won the lottery? If we don't get promotion are we in the doggie doodoos ? Seems like a reckless gamble to me or should I just go with the flow ?

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Eastbourne Views

    Got my first pre-season for a few years under my belt today. Eastbourne is only 45 mins or so from home so I made the trip along with my daughter. My first thoughts were I was amazed by big the squad were in terms of height. There are some decent sized players out there which I am guessing must...

    Been working away and had no internet access

    guys and girls totally out of the loop who have we signed (well I say signed very loosley) as I pressume we are still under an embargo and are they remotely any good? cheers x ooh Martin out
  8. Inception

    Have to admit this film has snuck up on me, but man I'm well excited about seeing it tomorrow. 87% on Rotten Tomatoes Trailers: 1 2 3 Chris Nolan (Dark Knight, Memento, The Prestige) is rapidly becoming a must see director, and he hasn't made a film that's even remotely average. All star cast...

    John Cooper Works Mini

    Well, after much deliberation the boy racer, mid life crisis part of my next car choice won and this afternoon I pick my John Cooper Works Mini. I know some of you will consider this foolhardy but to tell the truth...........I DON'T GIVE A FLYING FEK :D With 211 bhp under my right foot, the...

    Super League XV

    Yes, after switching to a summer sport, Super League XV starts this bright, breezy and gloriously hot January weekend. Leeds Rhinos take on Celtic Crusaders at that hotbed of rugby, Wrexham, tomorrow night. The main match is over at the Stoop, though, on Saturday afternoon. Harlequins, the...

    I have problems with work laptop so am trying to access work Webmail through my own laptop. I come up against Java problems (also preventing me from accessing SZ Chat Room) saying not installed on PC. I tried a few things then uninstalled + Reinstalled latest version of Java. I still can't get...

    If they could play for England so could I....

    I'm sure this has been done before, but following on from the best XI's in the ashes thread it could be thinking what utter dross I have had to witness whilst watching England over the past 20 years of my cricket watching. Off top of my head, here is a team to send shivers down my spine.... 1...

    Question Lost players over the past few seasons.

    Not wanting this to turn into a Ron bashing thread but I find it really alarming when you consider the players we have lost over the past seasons that have never really been even closed to replaced. Hammell has only been part covered by some quality loaness, since JCR and Gowers departure we...

    Southend players with Easter related Surnames.

    As it thats time of year when we all get a few days of to pretend were actually religious I am looking for a crack squad of Southend players who surnames are remotely Easter related. I will start you off with Brett Angell.
  15. Sawyer, Hunt and Harrold

    Went to see Darlington v Wycombe last night with 3 ex-Shrimpers involved on the pitch. Sawyer and Hunt started and Harrold was on the bench. At first Sawyer looked like a boy amongst men - almost literally given the height of many of the other players involved. But he got more and more involved...

    Was That Really England?

    As the hangovers ebb away and the clean-up begins, a nation struggles to reconcile their fuzzy memories of the game with what they believe they know about their team. Was that really England crashing home four goals against Croatia? Were those white shirts actually passing the ball around the...

    Kicked To the Curb

    There's never a dull moment in the EPL. Just 24 hours after the farcical scenes at St James Park, Alan Curbishley nipped in ahead of Kevin Keegan to become the first manager of the season to leave his club, resigning after an unhappy spell at West Ham. The history books will hint at a short...

    Another reaction from last night

    Haven't had a chance to air my views about last night. I know people on here hate it when anybody has an even remotely negative opinion, but last night will go down as a very very low stage of my Southend United supporting history, be it all a short one of 7 years. The team looked...
  20. Uncle Ron's magic show

    Lets have a share issue,the proceeds of which will go to buying new players. Lets get the season ticket money in before Gower and Bailey leave the club. Lets get a few bob for Hooper, McDonald,Harrold etc. Lets sell Bailey for £750,000. Lets get Freedman on a late free transfer to satisfy the...
