  1. helloooo

    Hey all, newbie here (obviously) Who am I? A bit about myself, I live in Australia, unfortunately quite a fair distance from Roots Hall. Or any League two ground for that matter so I cant claim to have actually seen a Southend match live. I have a shockingly poor knowledge of football in...

    Anyone want to get involved in Coaching?

    We are looking for a few new football coaches to take on new mini soccer teams at Manor. No experience necessary. Full support given towards F.A. Level 1 coaching badges and beyond. About 1 1/2 hours on a Saturday morning and an hour or so for a match on a Sunday morning required. Over 18's...
  3. Question New Stadium Shares

    Hi all, about 3 years ago I brought( stupidly) some shares for Southend And it's new ground. I now want to sell them as I would rather a bit of cash. I rang the club asking how I could do this and they was ridiculously unhelpful. Does anyone actually know how I can get rid of them?
  4. Restaurant Recommendation needed

    Taking my Grandparents out next Saturday evening for their 80th birthdays. Need a nice restaurant to take them too. Not ridiculously expensive, a nice pub would be ideal. Are the pubs down in Paglesham still good? Cheers guys. pubes xx

  6. FM - New Idea

    I tried FM13 for a bit, but never got into it or enjoyed it, so started back on FM07 for a bit. I've done that for several seasons and got Southend to win the Prem, now thought of a new challenge. With all the talk on the "If Southend cease to exist" thread about starting a new team, it gave me...

    Battle of the ridiculously hot women, Round 43.

    It's like the Totty Cup, but for any (famous) hot woman, be it singer, actress, porn star etc. Anyone else think now is as good a time as any to get it going?
  9. Question Luton v AFC Wimbledon (Bizarre Request)

    Hey guys, AFC Wimbledon fan here in peace. Slightly bizarre request really. I am out in Southend tomorrow night for a mate's birthday beers-up, meaning I can't go and see the Dons at Luton. The game is on TV on a Sky subscription channel called Premier Sports (sky channel 433). I just wondered...

    TV screen size

    I'm useless with technology, was wondering if anyone could help my long running predicament. On my tv (42" widescreen) it seems to cut off the edge of the picture, its fine most of the time, watching football seems ok with the score visable etc. but when writing comes up on the screen the ends...
  11. The ridiculously positive thread

    3 years time Tommy Widdrington leads us out at Fossets Farm in the Championship after back to back promotions under Paul Sturrock, who steps aside to be Director of Football... :)
  12. Dear Ronald

    Residents Only Parking off Vic Ave

    I am sure this is affecting a few of you, who like me, park in Colchester Road or similar and then walk to Southend Vic to go to work. Now they have ridiculously made this residents only parking between 9am and 6pm Mon-Sat, where will you go??

  15. Broadband Speed Help

    This is one for the real techy's on here... I'm paying for 8mb Broadband. Now, living as far from the exchange as I do I'm fully aware that my speed will never be 8mb, but I usually float around 2mb at peak times, a bit faster in the middle of the night. The last two days, however, I've been...
  16. What Did You Learn From University?

    Earlier today, I put the finishing gloss on my last ever University assignment. Ever. It's been 3 short years really, I've gained 18 lbs in Alcohol, I'm ridiculously in debt, but I'll have some letters to add onto my name. I've learnt a lot though, hardly anything journalism related, but more...

    Question Your experiences of taking the other half to the football...

    I was talking to my boss today who failed to convince his wife to come with him and watch the Chelsea vs Liverpool CL match last night, as she thought it'd be a 'dull game'. But it reminded me of my own experiences when trying to convince the better half of what makes going to the football so...

    Vying for the number three spot

    Forget the X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent or Strictly Come Dancing, there was only one audition to attend this weekend as three prospective England batsmen took to the crease to try and force their way back into the international reckoning. England must now long for the days when a succession...

    I think we can safely say.....

    .... The players are finally realising we're in with a chance of the unthinkable!! First time this season, they looked like a team who knew the importance of that victory, and the ridiculously tight margins of error we're working in!!.... That second half was a combination of complacency...
  20. Yorkshire Blue

    Standing at the cross-roads - read this Ron Martin!

    I think the club is currently at a cross roads. We can either spend money and try and buy our way out of possible trouble with expensive short term solutions, or we can struggle on with what we've got, topped up by loan signings and the occasional more expensive signing when the right player...
