    Companies to ask for help RE: My trip to Ethiopia...

    Hi guys, As some of you will have read, I am in the privilaged position of being sent to Ethiopia this summer to work in a school working with street children, mainly boys, and helping young women develop their confidence in English so that they can find better jobs which make them less...

    An amazing thing happened in football yesterday at St.Mary's stadium which to my recollection has never been seen before.Our fans actually sung and did the conga through TWO opposing fan's goal celebrations! When the "Great Escape" first went up it was sung as an act of defiance.As if to say...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 2

    "This football club has lacked direction for a long time," Ron Martin told the Evening Echo's Bernie Friend in mid-September 2000. On the pitch Southend United were struggling at wrong end of the Third Division table, having notched up just one win from their opening seven games of the season...

    Do those Shrimpers who object to the ground want to be in the CCC?

    We know there are a small number of fans who oppose the move to the new ground which isnt surprising in itself. I was thinking about this after the game and wondered why the same people who dont want a new ground are also screaming blue murder when we arent doing so well on the pitch at this...

    As anyone that knows me, i do like a good f%&king whinge and moan anything anything and everything but some of you lot on here are a big bunch of girls. You are all whining and moaning about how we are not coping in this league!! Are you f*cking suprised?! Look at the resources...

    What were we expecting?

    I am as depressed as everyone this morning and it tears me apart to see horrible sides like Hull coming to the Hall and winning but I do think its time for a reality check. We have come into the 2nd highest division in the country and the 5th best in terms of finance in Europe. Is it any wonder...

    Pottery Lesson

    So how did we handle the step-up in class and what have we learned for the season ahead? The step-up ------------ Just like last season, the step up from one division to the next was instantly apparent and, while Stoke are far from being one of the better "footballing" sides we'll...

    Unofficial DVD....

    Just wondered if anyone had the resources and facilities and inclination to make such an item. Obviously not trying to stop people buying Official Club DVD but including things like Championship with Swansea game, Anglia Socccer Night, Soccer AM etc? Would be bloody marvellous and I'm...
  13. Colchester and proud!


    Well done boys, I must admit we did have a giggle at Layer Road when you were 1-0 and 2-1 down, but you made it in the end Sincere congratulations on your promotion and maybe just maybe, we will be up there with you, if so it will be an unbelievable achievement by Parky given our resources...

    Junior Agogo

    Just seen on BBC website that our bid was a 'stronger offer' than Oxfords.   Now I'm under the impression Oxford made a bid of £150,000?  And I thought ours was in the region of £75,000.   Does this mean we did offer more incentives(Gray/Edwards?!) or a big sell-on fee to tempt them? Or is it...
