    Offered out by a 90 year old?

    Just popped to Asda's to get some shopping bits as I am cooking dinner tonight for the sprogs and the beloved. I approached one of these bus stop shelter thingies that you take your trolley back to and in front of me was this old guy fiddling with the trolley trying to get his pound back. I...

    The battle for succession at Stamford Bridge

    With Avram Grant deposed, the battle for succession at Stamford Bridge is on and there's only man that I want to see given a chance in the hotseat. The enduring bone of contention with Chelsea is that, with limitless funds, they've spent five years building up a very good, but very workman-like...

    18 + NSFW Tantric s£x!

    I was flicking threw the channels last night and started watching a programme called " sextera on sky. It was basically about things a bit risky, and there was this english guy on there who had been to India and studied "tantric sex". He had regular customers who would visit him and he would...

    Leeds 15 point Decision this week.

    Not strictly Southend related but Leeds could win back the 15 points deducted at the start of the season this week. This would move them to second. On current form and with our chances of automatic almost over I would rather meet Carlisle or Doncaster than Leeds in the Play Offs. So purely on...
  5. Jcr

    Before I am told this should be in Ex-Shrimpers, let me explain. JCR was quite often the best player on the park when he wore the sacred Blue, and it was a shame to see him go. However, we seem to be a much better team without him. I don't think he was a massively selfish player, though he...
  6. Congratulations from sunny Colchester

    Colchester fan here. Would just like to congratulate you on your new ground being approved. The plans look pretty impressive. Would be amazing for your club if you managed to fill it. Do you think you will? A stadium of that size can only be a good thing for Essex. I just hope that we are...
  7. I'm a newbie; hello to all!

    Well here is my first thread! I am a South Lower family section man with plenty of kids in tow at home games, cup games etc. My twin girls (7) really enjoy going but one was mortified we sold JCR, hmm - after the Barnsley game I make her right! TBV is very welcome and we appreciate there...
  8. Happy New Year...

    ...or not as the case may be. Absolutely woeful performance from us today, never looked a real threat, never looked like we were going to create anything and never looked like we were bothered about the game. Collis - 6 - Virtual spectator for the majority of the game. Made one decent save...

    If you could bring unrivalled to sucess for the rest of your life....

    but in return you could never watch the Blues be it in person or on the TV (Not even Virgin Media highlights) would you. Personally I am going to be selfish and say I would rather watch the lads week in week out?

    Father to Son

    In what has been something of a shock to the system recently, Mrs Hank and I have started contemplating the idea of making and raising a little Hank. As I survey the wreckage that purports to be a society these days with its depleted traditional values, lack of discipline, absence of respect and...
  12. The Value Of A Drink.

    The Value of a Drink "Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams .. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered...

    Echo - Comments Forum

    The latest drivel from a clueless fool on The Echo website, regarding the new stadium.... You football yobs are all ****ers you dont care at all about the ones trying to make a liveing in the high street or who lives around the site. selfish that you are kicking a ball is so cool what about...
  14. Pitch Invasion...

    I don;t want to focus on a negative from such a fantastic night BUT, it was a real shame that fans went on to the pitch again last night, whilst we all want to celebrate the win, not being able to cheer and give thanks to the team at the immediate close of the game was dissappointing. Very...

    Southend vs Ipswich

    Southend 1: Ipswich 3 Blues suffer to the Tractor Boys Backlash A packed Roots Hall suffered in silence today as they witnessed their team lose to an average Ipswich side. Yet again we conceded three poor goals and confidence looks at an all time low. At 2.45 I was waiting outside the West...
  16. Jonny_Stokes

    Nice to see..

    Nothing like a ****poor series of results, culminating in a dreadful home performance to get the message board in uproar. Blimey this league's going to be harder than either the fans or our manager thought - we're actually going to be in a bit of relegation trouble this season. Our...
  17. Two holes views

    Well it was a strange game really. We played really well in patches and a little bit shoddy in patches. For me we had an excellent first half in which i thought that bradbury and JCR were immense. Second half tilly made some surprising substitutions with both JCR and Eastwood coming off for non...

    Back from Dagenham

    First half we were shocking, in fact worse than shocking. Barrett was getting mugged time and time again and despite protestations from our supporters, I was right in front of it and it was a clear penalty. A lazy move across to the ball and Benson went over. We did however hit the bar and then...
  19. Has Freddy fogotten how to pass?

    good opportunities to put other players in on goal, but would rather shoot from 25 yards out, now I know he does crack in the occasional stunner, but you can't score 1 every week, I think his desire to win the golden boot is hurting the teams cause more than help it. I might be wrong to...
