    Brown on Ranger

    There's an interesting article in the Echo today on PB's views on Nile Ranger and what the future may hold. I've copied the main quotes from Chris Phillips twitter page below. Maybe he has run out of patience? or maybe he wants Nile to get the message? Brown: “When Nile comes out of...

    Totally beyond belief????

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-35773649 No, this is not about the veracity or otherwise, of these leaked papers..........it's a more important question than that. We live in a western democracy........freedom of the press and all that b******s. So, from that point of view and...

    Not a clever move!!

    Blackpool had to apologise to Bradford City after yesterday's match over their pre-match choice of music. Billy Joel's 'We didn't start the fire' was perhaps a little insensitive in the circustances!

    Shrimpers Trust

    This is not a trust bashing thread by any means because the work done that many of you don't see is nothing short of superb, however with rumours being spouted that Sainsburys may be pulling out and absolute silence from the club should the Trust not be taking a lead when conversing with the...

    Safe standing

    Looks like it's back on the agenda: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/26079503 Good news I say. However, the Hillsborough Family Support Group remain implacably opposed, which does make the debate a little delicate as even though the proposed rail seating is a far cry from the terraces of...

    Crowd for Saturday

    30,000+ fans at Wembley last week and only the new manager's second home game. Will the appointment of our new manager with his glowing (orange) premiership reputation enthuse the fanbase to build upon this achievement or will crowds drop because of the awful performances dished up under his...

    Small Town Doggers

    It's not often that I'm enthused by developments in contemporary music, but I rather like this fine alt.country combo from out here in the wild west ... I haven't got any 'youtube' vids to share with you as yet, but they are one unusual assortment of country rockers who sing songs of kicking the...

    ' Take your kit to Scotland '

    It could be the opportunity for that every Blues fan dreams of ; with potentilly just nine fit players available for the Scottland tour, the word reaching me from sources close to the club is that able-bodied Blues supporters will be requested to take their boots with them for the forthcoming...
  10. Sheep!

    I have read all the posts about booing and not being supportive of the players. I am writing this at half time today, only getting to follow the match on BBC Essex. The truth is our players are not the men we need. Sheep and not lions. Ability is only half the debate. When the going gets tough...
  11. Sturrock - complete idiot ?

    Great comment from Sturrock after Saturdays game - "My players don't deserve their wages". Either he has been on another planet the last few months, is totally insensitive to the previous players and what we as fans have had to put up with or he is just a complete idiot. Last point - please Mr...

    Tommy set to say goodbye

    ...is the headline the OS chose to use to feature tonight's game at Salisbury. Going Widdout Go on admit it, with the blows we've got used to taking lately, the parlous state of our club and the abundance of pre-pre-contract pre-contracts, that's got to be the most insensitive headline yet...

    The 60k loan

    <Introduction - Good News Anyone ? A colleague of mine is helping a friend collate some information on our club&#8217;s season and asked me for input - I had to look at his request 3 times before I could think of anything positive. Our football club&#8217;s chairman of course is always positive...
  14. Ron speaks

    Make of this what you will. Can't wait to hear his take on squad size! Good luck tonight.Will be listening in - no doubt of the MK commentary as te Southend broadcast is so hit and miss. A few - not many in truth - have commented that I have "gone quiet" over the past two or three weeks...

    Ron speaks

    Chairman's Blog Firstly let me apologise to those supporters who feel I have been conspicuous by my absence. Having said that I would write three blogs in the close season, I issued two. The third was to cover the new stadium plans. Over the years I hope everyone agrees that communication...

    Listen To The Lessons Of Clough

    On the weekend that saw the UK release of the Brian Clough movie 'The Damned United', it was alarming to see Manchester United's discipline crumbling in a way that 'Old Big 'Ed' would never have tolerated. The legendary Nottingham Forest and Derby manager was rarely short of a quote and I can...

    A Sensitive Man

    A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears. There are three shelves in the...
