  1. Dave Penney

    I haven't posted in ages, but I'm a little bit bored at work so I thought I'd give it a go. I've been thinking about the season that is drawing to a closes this Sunday, I wonder if anybody feels that we have missed Dave Penney? I always got the impression that he was a good sounding board for...

    RIP fellow shrimper Peter Mole

    It is with increasing regularity that we are losing fellow shrimpers, and it is with regret I have to announce another. Peter Mole season card holder in the East Greens, respected ex local estate agent retired (not many of those I know) enjoyed another of his favourite hobbies cycling. Lost his...

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...
  4. Universally respected groups - The Beatles

    As per the other thread, I personally would find it bizarre that people wouldn't like the 4 Mop Tops from Liverpool - there's surely something for everyone? Simple poll, do you like The Beatles? And if not, why not? What's not to like?

    Universally liked and respected groups

    I've never got people who say "I don't like The Beatles". The range of their work is such that there is surely something for everyone. Anyhow, there are people out there who don't like them. Are there any bands out there that no-one dislikes? And that have critical acclaim too? The Clash seem...

    Free agents this summer

    Just thought a topic with players who will be free to leave their respected clubs come the summer; who may be potential (realistic) transfer targets for the mighty blues. I'll start with a proven goalscorer at this level: Rene Howe - Torquay

    Captain Cresswell

    Seeing Phil Brown hand the captain's armband to Ryan Cresswell on Friday got me thinking and wondering why Luggy never gave the armband to the same player? Ryan is a natural leader, gives everything to the course and appears well respected by his team mates. Everything you could want in a...
  8. Mr Sturrock A Poetry Tribute

    I feel obliged to pay tribute to Mr Sturrock and the recent events surrounding his departure. Despite this being a very bad time of the year for me as you may well appreciate. I give you my poetry tribute to Luggy, a good man . I have kept this short despite the many events that have happened...
  9. PS deserved better!!

    Whatever the rights and wrongs of Paul Sturrock leaving the club, the handling of this has done SUFC no favours at all. Even RM acknowledges the work done by Sturrock and, yes, his achievement at getting the club to Wembley for the first time. Paul Sturrock is widely respected in the game -...

    The Nakid Truth

    Taken from: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Naked-Truth-CameronIs-he-the-worst-prime-minister-in-British-history/349274725156523 How close was David Cameron to having a week that was not a total disaster for himself or the government. I really thought he was going to make it by Thursday,But...

    "You don't win anything with Kids"

    I will probably get shot down for this, but hey it's a football forum for debates after all. So back to the topic of my thread, as a famous football pundit infamously once said "You don't win anything with kids" and to a certain extent, this is sadly very true. In fairness, Paul Sturrock is...

    Harry's Eulogy

    In answer to those of you that wanted a copy of the eulogy that I gave for Harry at his funeral, here it is. Harry's Eulogy For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Terry and Malcolm had worked for me for the past seven years. During that time, I grew to know him very well both as a...

    I don't really understand...

    football. Even after all these years. Luggy is a well respected manager and tactician. He steers Southend United to the Play-Off's with Wembley and ultimately promotion in sight. We have to beat Crewe Alexandra. Crewe accumultated the least points of the play-off teams. They conceded the most...

    Ron Martin to seek cleaner image ?

    With all the latest shenanigans following on the tax and debt debacle from last year, isn't it time that our respected Chairman set about ensuring the club gets a new cleaner image ? After all example starts at the top doesn't it ?
  15. Paul Sturrock, ''What a Manager!!!'' Says Peter Gilbert.

    Couldn't make the Stevenage match today but listened on BBC Essex. Peter Gilbert was guest co-commentator. He couldn't speak highly enough of Paul Sturrock. He said his preparation of games was second to none, working on Stevenage's game and how to combat, nulify and beat them, and working on...

    SUFC - The greatest fans in the world

    Thought everyone might like to see a blog written by a very well respected North West based editor/journalist who is a massive Blackburn fan. I sent him a text saying a number of SUFC were on route to Ewood Park and it turned out he spoke to a few Shrimpers. Some nice words said about us...

    The Qatar World Cup

    I was interested to see this in the news again with Sepp Blattering on about it. Apparently his comments were the strongest indication yet that it'll be held in the Summer. This came as a surprise to me, as I thought his comments were the strongest indication yet that it would be switched to...
  18. Super cop

    TZ Wino has asked me to let you all know that he has just taken a phone call from our highly popular and well respected Police Liaison Officer Spooner. Paul said that although sounding emotional, the great guy wanted to express his gratitude to all SUFC supporters for their very kind words...

    Blame the Manager?

    Just read this article - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9346616.stm - and with all the speculation about the jobs of Grant, Hodgson and Ancelotti and the number of managers who have been sacked in the last couple of weeks, it's got me thinking. Why is always the managers who get the...

    Great Wakering Rovers In Mourning For Club Legend Johnson

    In these days of £200,000+ a week wages, of club chairmen and high court hearings splashed across the papers, we tend to lose sight of the very essence of what football really is all about. Great Wakering Rovers have lost one of the pillars of their club, as has football in Essex, with the...
