    Has The Time Come?

    For discussion........ Players not paid since mid December. Manager not paid since mid December. Free fall down the League. Two court cases vs HMRC No new permanent players paid for, for at least the last 14 months. (maybe more, not sure if we paid for JFC) Morale at rock bottom, both on the...

    New York

    All, I'm off to New York next week (work related) and wondered if anyone has any recommendations of things to see and do. I plan on doing the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Top of the Rock but thought i'd see what others have done before. Thanks

    Backlash against the Bankers

    Best Comedy series of the 00s?

    Further to MK's thread about the state of comedy, I thought it might be good to discuss which comedy show was your favourite from the last decade. Many of the choices speak for themselves; The Office was a critical smash over here and developed the fly-on-wall feel of Ianucci / Morris' early...

  10. Ref Watch ...... Hartlepool

    The man in charge of Saturday's rather important fixture is Phil Gibbs from Birmingham. He is employed as Assistant Headteacher at a boys' secondary school in Kings Heath. In his second year as a League referee, he has never refereed Southend before and Hartlepool only once (they lost away)...

    This film due for general release in January looks like it could be pretty good. Despite not actually being born in Essex, Ian Dury wrote a few songs about some colourful characters from our home county and it's clear that he loved the place despite contracting polio in Southend ...

    Being aroused at work... Has this happened to you? So there we are sitting at the desk drifting after lunch on a cold winter's day as I normally do and I start thinking of smashing 7 shades out of Jennifer Lopez. I naturally get barred up and excited with a little smirk rising and a bulge in...

Had a brief chat with JT afterwards and shook his hand while thanking him for making a great film on my favorite local band.Think he was a...
  15. United Cleared, Can Continue European Pillage

    Well, anybody could have seen that one coming. No sooner than Le Havre made idol threats to sue Manchester United for all they're worth, A Fifa judge has cleared them of any wrongdoing and allowed them to sign French starlet Paul Pogba immediately. United are usually as immaculate off the pitch...

    Rock N Rolla?

    Anyone seen it? Mrs DtS is off to Aqua Aerobics tonight and I have got a choice of Villa vs Man City or Rock N Rolla? I am guessing its along the same lines as all Guy Ritchies other films?
  17. Ref Watch ..... The Paint Thing

    The referee for tomorrow night's early kick off at the rather nicely appointed stadium of the rather nastily created MK Dons, is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. In just his second season as a Football League referee, he has only refereed Southend once before...

    'Oil City Confidential'

    ...is the title of a film coming out in October. It's about Canvey's finest, Dr. Feelgood, and has been made by Julien Temple. Apparently, Wilko, Sparko and The Big Figure have all been very much involved in it and it charts the rise of the band through their 'pub rock' years in London to the...
