    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...
  2. Question Yellow or Blue? Answer - yellow

    Guessing we will be wearing yellow on Saturday? I'm looking forward to screaming "yellow" at the top of my voice. Just wanted to check in case club have decided to change it to blue kit as has been done before. UTB !

    HULL..........stripping, streaming and screaming

    There are those lucky ones who are able to get to the game 'in the flesh' so to speak and there are other ex-pats, who will be able to sit in the confort of their local pub or bar and watch the game on a large TV screen. For the rest of us it's radio or Blues Player (if it works!)...........but...

    Welcome to the Thai League

    I couldn't make Northampton last weekend but found some local football to watch as Khon Kaen FC took on FC Phuket. The standard was pretty **** poor but the crowd (about 2500 - 3000) were really vociferous and it helped create a good atmosphere in the ground despite the sometimes haphazard...
  5. Sleep

    So, on average how much do you get at night? On an undisturbed (ie, no baby screaming the house down expecting a dummy to be retrieved), I reckon I get about 8. Bed by 10/10.30, up at 6.30. A colleague I once worked with reckoned he needed no more than 5 and didn't hit the hay until 1am -...

    Southend United's Kevan Hurst gutted, despite scoring wonder goal against Rotherham U

    KEVAN HURST was left feeling gutted after Southend United's 1-1 draw with Rotherham United, despite scoring a screaming 30 yard shot. More...

    Anyone good at writing Business Proposals *cough-begging letter-cough*??

    I know the likelyhood of anyof these taking over is very remote, but....

    Question Budgets

    Following today's story in the Echo that we could not afford to take Paul Benson on loan for two months as we would have exceeded our budget I really am clueless as to how the budgets are set, can anyone help me? I appreciate that the club would have it's own budget but if I am correct, it...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2, Oxford United 1

    A SCREAMING second half shot from Ryan Hall secured Southend United a hard-working 2-1 win over Oxford at Roots Hall this afternoon. More...
  10. Norway Tragedy - interesting (lack of a) story

    http://talkaboutequality.wordpress.com/2011/08/01/if-a-married-lesbian-couple-saves-40-teens-from-the-norway-massacre-and-no-one-writes-about-it-did-it-really-happen/ Seems really strange that this hasn't made the news.

    Braintree Town 1, Southend United 1

    Clarence Clemons R.I.P

    Woke up to hear the news this morning. Really saddened by this, he's struggled with various health problems over the years, but was talking of touring again and getting fitter and healthier. Get well soon! http://www.peteramescarlin.com/node/189

    Kulula Airline

    Kulula is an Airline with it's head office situated in Johannesburg . Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported: Kulula's new paint scheme "Flying...
  14. NSFW Cybersex - You're doing it wrong (18+)

    taken from b3ta: Online computer users often engage in what is affectionately known as "cybersex". Often the fantasies typed into keyboards and shared through Internet phone lines get pretty raunchy. However, as you'll see below, one of the two cyber-surfers in the following transcript of an...

    Raoul Moat

    I'm thinking the Raoul Moat stand-off tonight is like watching England all over again.... an entire nation glued to the TV screaming SHOOT!!! Seriously, give up.
  16. Question Time to say goodbye Steve

    First person to go should be Steve Tilson, Why because he manages with no passion and is too laid back, get fed up with him just standing there arms folded while it all blows up in front of him, want to see a manager shouting, screaming running down the touch line and showing the same passion as...

    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...

    I must admit to being slightly embarrassed watching the feature on us on Late Kick Off and seeing the 'baying mob'. Anyone else? I've got much respect for True Blue in going with what he believes in and rallying such an event, but: "WHAT DO WE WANT? MARTIN OUT! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOW!"...

    How old were you when you started watching SUFC?

    This is in light of the debate on TB's poll thread regarding family oriented footy and whether or not getting youngsters along to games actually has a long term good or not. Please answer honestly rather than answering in order to manipulate the results whatever your beliefs may be. This is...

    Just Another Afternoon At The Match

    Today was a rare opportunity for me. With local non-league football and my lad's training wiped out by waterlogged conditions, resulting in the radio show I would have been doing to cover it all also biting the dust, popping along to the Hall became an unexpectedly pleasant compensation...
