  1. Bolton fan here

    Hi all Bolton fan here. Just want to say good luck for the rest of the season, and hope you do well with your promotion push. We got lucky with a last minute goal, but I suppose that's football, and it's luck that my football club really have not had in recent years. Its a shame it was a...
  2. Can a laptop be restored to its former glory?

    Basically I've had my lap top since about the end of 2013. Sadly it seems to be winding down. It's getting slower and slower and things like logging on take longer. Anyone got any tips to try to get it back in decent shape again or is it looking at the knackers yard with the next year or so...

    Memory Lane Roots Hall Market

    Good g_d. I had reasons to visit the ground this morning. Being an East Bank snob who shopped exclusively at Bolingbroke & Wenley and latterly, John Lewis, I haven't had cause to visit Roots Hall Market for some time, but today my chauffeur dropped me off to collect my ticket for Saturday and...

    Get the good news down here people. I've been restauranting in Padrino's and the phone signal was non existent so coming home to this score was fabulous news and a great response to Millwall. Really looking forward to Northampton Saturday.

  7. Proposed Football Rule Changes

    When I first saw this on social media yesterday, I thought it was another piece of "Fake News", but perhaps it's not. The main stream media (newspapers and Sky Sports News etc) seem to be following the story. Have Fifa & Marco Van Basten completely lost the plot? or do you welcome these...

    Question Phil Brown Chants....

    Evening guys, and first of all, Happy New Year to everyone :-) Quick question...... Given that we're in the midst of a barnstorming run - 12 undefeated, in the top 6 - our highest league position for nearly 9 years, and playing some sumptuous football, why have the Phil Brown songs dried up...

    Rest of the season

    Having just looked at the fixtures and table for the rest of this season we seem to have a challenging next 6 weeks, playing most of the divisions top teams BUT then for the rest of the season we have games against mid table teams and a run at the current bottom 6 in the last month and a half...
  11. Charlton game tickets

    Anyone got 2/3 tickets available for Charlton? Yes I've left it late but the old man has been in hospital and has just got all clear to come out so wanted to cheer him up... If you could let me know asap that would be great, the place is a sell out apart from south lower and restricted south...
  12. Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Oxford United ( Check a Trade )

    This Tuesday evening, under the floodlights and after getting past the " picket line" we are 3 games from Wembley. In our last cup opportunity I expect PB to put out a strong team and entertain. Oxley Demetrieu, Thommo, Ferdinand, Timlin Hines, Lenny, Wordsworth, Atko Ranger, Cox MacL is not...
  13. Houses down Vic Av

    I just drove past the derelict houses down Victoria Avenue (on the corner of priory park) and noticed scaffolding is being erected. Does anyone know what they're doing with them? Are they knocking them down or restoring them?

    Pre-Match Thread Bradford City v Southend United

    OK, it's a bit early, but as 'Brett Angle' alluded to it on the 'report and ratings' thread, thought it an opportunity for the discussion to sit on here. For me, if ever there was a game which we really don't need now it's this one. Tuesday night in Bradford, with players just coming back to...
  15. Lost firefox tabs

    Yesterday my firefox crashed and when I turned it back on I'd lost all my tabs. When i've tried to restore them I can't get them. Anyone know if it's possible to restore from a point in time? I had loads open, too many probably, and lost loads of good tunes and stuff like that. ta

    Apologies if this has been done before, but to lighten the doom; how about we explain our user names?? FLOVAL FLYER Back in the day (early 80's) I used to race BMX, I rode under the SE Racing banner in the 'Cruiser' division, on a Floval Flyer - 30 years later I managed to buy one and restore...

    Which stand for you?

    I've always watched Southend from the West Stand, from the days when it was standing only to now when you wish it still was. We don't manage all home games for various reasons so we aren't season ticket holders and thus have to book tickets each game we go to. Last season against Bradford City...
