    Lets set the ball rolling. Line up same as against Wimbledon , injuries permitting, and another fine 2-0 win for the Blues.

    I seem to have unintentionally acquired a cat...

    Slightly random, I know. But about 3 months ago, a cat started appearing in our back garden on a pretty consistent basis. He then started noticing when we were getting home from work and waiting for the back gate to open before darting in and sitting in/rolling around in the garden wanting us to...

    The World is Flat

    Watched The Martian today and loved it, read the book which was a bit meh but the film far more entertaining. That led me to have a look at NASA's facebook page and all fascinating stuff about what they are doing to get to Mars. What I also found was bewildering though. There are a lot of...

    Likes, Fatso Points

    A couple of gripes here. Since 'likes' have come in, which are quick and easy, do fatso points get used any more? I'm sure the mods must have some figures on this. I actually preferred it when it was just fatso points - it meant if you liked or disliked something you had to comment on why -...

    Anyone else feel uneasy about this terrible event. The bomber decided to dress in stand out clothing a bright yellow top,but for me the camera operator was either eagle eyed or something slightly sinister. How on earth did the operator pick the bomber out from the crowd?He/she then captured...

    Home Loan questions

    Been 8 years since I had any involvement in the UK mortgage industry and I know the whole industry has changed quite a bit since then, so wonder if anyone working in it (maybe as a broker) could answer my questions? We still own our home in Westcliff which is rented out, I figure about 50-60%...

    Travel arrangements

    Just thought I'd get the ball rolling by starting this thread. It appears that there are no engineering works planned for next Saturday on both train services into London. C2c have said they are laying on extra carriages only, and I await a response from Greater Anglia.
  11. Who's travelling the furthest for Wembley?

    Right, lets start the ball rolling. My eldest son & Daughter in Law, live in Upper Manhattan, New York, and are flying over for the game. 3,000 + miles each way. Anyone coming from further afield?.

    Whilst we are in a moaning mood - Steve Kavanagh, is he a success?

    Chatting with fellow fans last night, Steve Kavanagh was mentioned as we questioned what he actually has contributed to the playing success of the club. What is his actual role, I seem to recall he was responsible for the success on and off the pitch the pitch and in building...

    Garden Services

    As I am laid up at the moment I (well Mrs FS to be fair) need some assistance . Does anyone know of a decent , reasonable gardener, in the east of the Town (shoebury etc) who would mow a couple of lawns and also do a tip run to clear a load of garden waste ? Thought I'd have a quick ask before...
