    Correspondence to the club

    I appreciate that this thread will be closely linked to the club statement one but if possible could this please be kept as a stand alone thread. A place we can track correspondence to the club and any replies we get. Here's mine: Dear Sirs, I feel compelled to write to you...

    Club statement: True blues?!

    CLUB STATEMENT: TRUE BLUES?! Posted on: Mon 20 Apr 2009 Southend United Chief Executive Geoffrey King has today issued the following statement regarding Saturday's match with Leicester City: Prior to the game on Saturday an arrangement had been reached with the Police to have...

    I've had a leaflet and brochure through the door about the future of Southend Airport and also something called SERT - South Essex Rapid Transport. It is formed by two bus routes going East and West. Looking at the proposed routes I was interested to see the Eastbound route ro Shoebury runs all...

    The Apprentice - week 1

    Whoever the 16th person was who "bottled it" before the tv stage, he enjoyed more air time than the majority of those on the men's team - Howard excepted. Tonight was all about the meltdown in the girls' team. Stepping up to the plate in week 1, Mona (surely the a and n are the wrong way round?)...
  7. Well done Tilson

    Before all the stupid comments come along like "where are all the Tilson moaners now!!!!" etc... I thought Tilson got it spot on today and played about the best team he could with the resources available. I groaned when I heard Francis was playing on the right side, but fair play he did well...

    Supporting a club like Southend United

    As I sat high up in the Shed End at Stamford Bridge enjoying our moment in the sun on the greyest of winter days, soaking up the Blue Voice inspired atmosphere, taking in the flag-waving travelling Shrimper army bedecked in yellow and coping with the perforation of my ear-drums from an incessant...
  9. Chelsea ratings

    Cudicini - nice outfit - looked really excellent picking the ball out of the net Ferreira - terrified of Stanislas, (rumours that he will be replaced by Simon Francis) Carvalho - very very poor in the air - Ivanovic - who ? Ashley Cole - could be useful as cover for Herd as long as hes...

    When are most Shrimperzones going to wake up and smell the coffee

    Before I start this is not an anti Tilly thread, nor a sack the manager / board rant either. What I want to do is to open a discussion regarding the current state of the club and the direction it is going in. I have been supporting the club since 1986, so I am not one of the new fan's that is...

    Brilliant Streaming Music Player

    If you love music but cant afford to buy all the recent or classic CD's then there is a program which runs on your computer like itunes, but it has practically any song you would want to listen to, from early 1900's (for Cricko) to recent stuff (new take that album OBL?). Program is called...

    Brighton's New Stadium

    Brighton's New Stadium starts on 17th Dec Dream will become a reality when work starts on Falmer Some dates are imprinted in the minds of Albion fans. May 21, 1983, and April 26, 1997, are two obvious examples. Now December 17, 2008, can be added to the list. A quarter of a century after...

    Championship bottom 3.

    .....Doncaster, Barnsley, Notts Forest. With the amount of parachute money being thrown around these days to ex-Prem clubs it looks like a gap is opening up between League One and the Championship, even Forest and Donny who I thought would do ok this season are finding it hard. I can see it...

    Money Won't Buy Al-Fahim Success

    It may be billed as 'the clash of the cash', but if anyone at Manchester City thinks that their sky-rocketing bank balance automatically gives them parity on the pitch with Chelsea, then tonight's game is going to be a really nasty wake-up call. When you sweep away the tabloid headlines and the...

    Is Football ****ed?

    They say that a week is a long time in politics but, in football, it's a veritable epoch. This time seven days ago, Manchester City were struggling to pay their players, West Ham were enjoying their best start to a season in nine years and, at a surprisingly perky and entertaining Newcastle...

    I have lost the plot!

    After such a great enjoyment of my 10k run on Sunday and my ambition to be to run and complete the London Marathon in 2010. I have only gone and put myself on the list to compete in the June 2009 event for one of the most intense competitions out there. The Ironman 70.3 ok its only half the...

    Good Idea. People can get tips, post their graphics (sigs or avatars) and find resources such as brushes and fonts etc. comments?

    Benitez Must Improve

    It's two wins from two for Liverpool in the Premier League and European qualification has been secured, but has success ever been this abject? If the sign of a champion is the ability to win when you play badly, then Liverpool should have the title wrapped up by Christmas, because I don't think...

    The Olympics

    I would have put this on The Slippery Column, but I thought that maybe it would have a wider interest. I think I'm going to get a lot of hate mail for this one.... It has swallowed up half of Rafa Benitez's midfield, savaged Mark Hughes' plans for a successful start, forced AC Milan fans to...
