    Came up on my Facebook feed that today would have been Harrys 65th Birthday. One of the nicest , funny and most knowledgable guys I knew. Sadly departed far too young.
  2. Love-in

    I've only been on here for a few years , so relatively new in that respect. Now I'm sure this has been done before , so forgive me if I'm talking about re-hashing something. Just thinking it would be good if we had a general 'meet up' to put faces to names. I was introduced to this site by the...

  7. Southend United FIFA 15 Season

    As there isn't much going on here over the next few months, i'll be doing a FIFA 15 season with Blues. Everything will probably be on this thread, so there won't be multiple ones blocking everything else up. For the record, i'm not copying ChapperzUK. This is just something to keep you all...
  8. Clubs after Prosser?

    So, in light of Adam Barrett's new deal, in yesterday's echo, CP said four league two clubs are after Prosser. I can't help thinking that Yeovil must be one of those four...Sturrock "n'all". The other three are probably teams who were near the top last season, although Cambridge would probably...

    It is with deep sadness that I have heard of the death of former Shrimper John McKinven on July 25th.aged 73.

  17. One for the codgers

    Spent the afternoon at Portabello market, ignoring the antiques etc I was naturally drawn to a couple of pubs and the book and vinyl stalls. I picked up a couple of Charlie Buchan magazines, one which featured goalkeeper Lawrie Leslie on the cover. He was the first Blues goalkeeper I ever saw...
