    Catalonia Independence

    Polling going well over there. Rubber bullets and stun grenades all round at the moment. No mention of this from 'He Who Must Be Ignored' Must be hiding under the table........I mean leading the protests from the front.
  2. Tenancy Advice... Damage not caused by us!

    I was looking to see if any of my fellow Shrimpers were able to offer some advice in regards to our tenancy (more for peace of mind as I think we are completely in the right). Part of our Tenancy Agreement is that we must maintain all white goods that have been supplied. Recently our washer...

    Davis Cup 2016

    Off to a good start this weekend. Well done the team. I couldn't watch the last two sets of the match yesterday because I took my son to his tennis lesson, and then had one myself straight after, but from what I could see (the match was on in the club house) Murray looked out of it in the fourth...

    Evening Echo : Three Tower Blocks and bigger retail park to Fund 21,000 seat Stadiium

    Front page news on the Echo. Three tower blocks to fund the stadium and stadium to be smaller at 21,000. As planning permission expired and plans are different with a much bigger retail park it is likely to have to go to the government again. However the most interesting thing in the article...

    Timlin's rubber hekmet

    I came across this article on the BBC football web pages. There is nothing in there which is news now apart from one thing. Tims decided to buy his rubber top knot from a local shop and then ordered two more expensive ones from the Web. Now I know that we were a div 2 side at the time, but I...
  6. Windows (not the Micorosft kind) help

    All, The windows in my bedroom get very steamy (ooer!) due to condensation, and due to this the rubber seals around the double glazing have gone black with mould. Now can I replace them myself or does this have to be a pro-job? If I can do it myself, what is the rubber stuff - is it similar to...

    Joe Yoffe set to challenge FIFA's transfer window.

    Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Seems ex-Southend trialist Joe Yoffe is set to take FIFA to court and challenge the transfer window. He currently ply's his trade in Iceland, where due to the adverse weather they endure, the season (and subsequently many player contracts) ends outside...
  8. Roll Call For Saturday!!!!

    So come on who's going to be at the rubber stadium on Saturday and how many Shrimpers do you think will be there? I'm coming on my own (sad little larry) Remember for those who are going I think there are still average speed cameras for a section on the M25 and a large section of the M1 (M11...

    Ron Martin.

    Firstly, please appreciate I expect a barrage coming my way. However, I have to ask. As I have been mostly living abroad in the recent past (am back home in Southend wheeheeyy) I have followed The Shrimpers from afar. I see results, read match reports and new items and keep up with the gossip...
  10. Question Any news from the council today?

    I'm pretty sure today was the day the council were due to rubber stamp the extended planning at Fossetts.. Anyone in know?

    Prospects in talks with alternative buyer?

    There is a full page of articles in today's Echo which is nothing we have not heard before but some of the dates being mentioned are a tad confusing. The two sides in the Prospects saga are blaming each other for the termination of the contract..with the club asking for more time and Prospects...

    Car Insurance

    What is it with car insurance & having your pants pulled down, while being shafted by a 15" black rubber ****?!?! I am 29, no driving convictions & drive a 1.2L Fiat Punto (2005), postcode SS7. My previous vehicle was written off last year - non fault, i wasnt even in the car. All completed...
  13. An indication of our financial problems!

    Having spent many months awaiting my season ticket rebate - evidently the 'flag on my record was set incorrectly in the system', I received a cheque through the post for £55. I paid it into my bank last week and yesterday had it returned - yes, it's a cheque of the rubber variety! So having...

    Chipper's Guide To F1 Stars

    My lad, in his infinite wisdom, is commemorating his 14th birthday by writing an a-b-c guide to the 2010 Formula One racing season. Now, normally, with petrolheads, they look and sound particularly trainspotterish about the sport. He, though, isn't. This is some of what he's written so far on...

    Life In Tottenham

    Grown men bounce into each other like rubber balls on the street outside, screaming incoherently at each other in beery ecstasty. At the front door, a woman tries desperately to light a cigarette in shaking hands, eventually giving up and asking the bouncer to help, tears of joy in her eyes. All...

    Southenders and we're proud of it.

    This my little tribute to our fathers and grandfathers etc who make us all proud to be Southenders. During the war the Southend Standard had a weekly column showing news of local men such as: EKCO EXECUTIVES LOSS – A 19½ year old man has been killed in active service, the son of an executive of...

    2010 season

    Ah, spring training. The sound of rubber or cork wrapped in yarn and covered with leather thumping into leather mitts or the rifle crack of corked ash. Ahhh. There is something magical about the phrase "pitchers and catchers report". It sounds so innocent but at the same time so alluring. I'm...

    Slithering To The Brink

    The swelling band of English football clubs in crisis has a new member and it's my own team, Southend United. Late on Monday night, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HRMC) cancelled a planned Winding Up Petition and elected to pursue an Administration instead. Put simply, the club were flicked...
