  1. Worst people in the world

    It's these lot, isn't it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPnnxc1Dfm0 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muggle_quidditch I can get my head around them taking a ball game from a fantasy book/film series and playing it in real life, but what is with the broom stick? Why add an element of 'i'm...

    More local restaurant reviews.....

    IL Torrente, Benfleet. Food OK but overpriced and I think they are trying to cash in on an upmarket South Benfleet clientele. They didn't have Amaretto which is odd for an Italian restaurant and I saw them make an Irish coffee and stir the cream in. Don't think they will be around long unless...
  3. North bank

    Is it possible to have north bank for home fans for rest season as it looks stupid with handful away fans behind the goal! Can't we put them in North West corner.......

    When were times good

    A great article on the Yesterday Tv thingy about WW2 last night. People were saying what the war meant to them. Most said it was the most frightening, terrifying time of their life, which we all can understand. There though was an anomaly to this. I remember my Grandfather saying to me, god...
  5. Andy kellett to Manchester United

    Man U have signed Bolten Centre Half Andy Kellett on Loan for Rest of the Season, EErrrr Why??:unsure::unsure: :stunned:
  6. whats needed

    At least one verbal player who can gee up the rest of team and guide the younger players during the match, Prosser does a little but more is needed

    Southend United Catering Units

    http://www.essexchronicle.co.uk/Named-shamed-Essex-restaurants-food-outlets-worst/story-25893775-detail/story.html Should be better than a 1 star. Although the last inspection was two years ago. Hope it has improved since then.

    Gerrard to leave Liverpool

    Looks like his destination will be the MLS with LA Galaxy and New York FC intrested. If the latter signs him wonder if he will return to premiership next season on loan with someone :winking: Shame though as Gerrard is better than the MLS.

    Pre-Match Thread Daggers

    So one defeat in seven....looking to get closer to the top 3, any thoughts on squad members not up to two games in three days....lenny looked off it today and Barry Corr are the two that may be changed..or just keep a wining 11 together...patch em up and send em out. I would be tempted to bring...
  10. Question Prospects car park(as was).

    Sorry if this has been covered,but not having been advised officially of Prospects closure,does anyone know if I can drive straight into main car park for the rest of the seasons matches?Many thanks.
  11. Bullard: Bully or Bantermeister?

    There has been talk on here of new loan signing JJ O’Toole potentially causing unrest in the changing room because of his ‘track record’. Given Jimmy Bullard’s ‘banter’ / verbal attack on a fellow celebrity in I’m A Celebrity… and his subsequently being voted off, when does banter go too far...
  12. Dan Bentley.

    As of late,I feel Mr Bentley has been at fault for some of the goals conceded !! I know I will be criticised by some,but I think his performances have not been too snappy. If Paul Smith had been playing,he would have been crucified. I personally think Bentley should be given a rest,or,even sold...

    Yahoo Mail query

    I use Yahoo e-mail and before I changed my laptop, when I received a new e-mail I'd get a sound and a tiny envelope shape on the toolbar. As you have guessed, I no longer have those. As I'm waiting for an e-mail from a good friend, I'd like to restore that alert facility. My question is....how?
  14. Leigh-On-Sea.com

    All, As most of you know, i write match previews & reports on Blues matches for www.leigh-on-sea.com I have come up with the idea of writing a mid-season review/rest of season preview, during which I will attempt to get the opinions one fan from each League Two team and ask them some questions...
  15. DTS

    I think defence is the biggest problem.

    I know we don't score enough but I think if PB can sort the defence out we have a chance. I am sorry but the defenders we have at the moment are not good enough with the exception of Coker. Virtually all the goals we have conceded are due to woeful defending. PB does not seem to know his best...

    Jack Payne

    I think it's time to give young Jack a rest this Saturday imo, he's not been as effective in the last few games, id bring him on from the bench against Luton, his fresh legs coming on with 20 minutes or so to go would kill them
  19. Chromecast

    Anyone have one? I'm a little bit confused - does it just replicates my laptop screen on my TV so I can watch anything, or is it restricted to only certain apps like BBC Iplayer? Ta in advance.
  20. Early season update on the competition

    Just amusing myself looking at the L2 table to see how some of the competition are doing, and although we're only 8 games in its surprising to see how some of the pre-season favourites have not started too well. Only one really justifying the hype is Bury in 2nd. Other than that its a sorry...
