    Breaking News Rons Latest Blog

    It appears the graphics didn't copy over, sorry !!! Chairman's Blog Firstly let me apologise to all those readers who were anticipating my blog yesterday. It is important that the Club do things when they say they are going to and I am sorry I could not deliver yesterday but was reliant upon...
  2. Steve Tilson

    I've just got back home and I am still so angry at today's performance - I've spent a good hour and half discussing the Tilson situation with my mate who, like me, has been going to Southend since the early/mid 80's, so this is not someone who has jumped on the recent bandwagon. I'm amazed to...

    Convicts v Saffers

    The 1st Test at Perh has passed almost unnoticed, the Seth Effrikans chasing down 414 to win the match, a great win for the Saffers as a year or so ago they would have bottled this big time. Although I don't like Graeme Smith his innings at Perth and the one to win at Headingley last summer puts...

    Shadow front bencher arrested.

    Ok, I know politics is a dodgy subject at the moment, but felt this story needed reporting. Be interesting to see how it develops, in my opinion. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/lawandorder/3532133/Tory-minister-Damian-Green-arrested-under-the-Official-Secrets-Acts.html...

    India 2 Convicts 0

    India have just comnpleted a 2-0 series victory over Australia. From what I have seen of the convict side it is a pale shadow of the team that has dominated (2005 aside) for many years. The retirements of Warne, McGrath, Langer etc has obviously impacted heavily on them, Bully boy Hayden is not...

    Chelsea Fall To Resurgent Roma

    This wasn't in the script. Chelsea were supposed to go to Italy, ease their way past a struggling Roma side and secure their place in the knock-out stages with two games to spare. The side that had suffered five consecutive defeats and were hovering above Serie A's relegation zone were supposed...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 1 - Aberdeen Shrimper

    The life of an SUFC exile can be a lonely one at times - and one which is a difficult existence to understand for some. I thought by setting up this weekly thread, we would get the opportunity to get to know some of the exiled posters on SZ a bit better. This week, Aberdeen Shrimper goes under...

    Chelsea Dominant As Villa Crumble

    Crisis? What crisis? Beset by injuries, Chelsea saved their best performance of the season so far for the day when the smart money was on Aston Villa to end that long unbeaten home run of theirs. Luiz Felipe Scolari's walking wounded preserved their record in a magnificent first half before...
  9. TV progammes that have dragged on far too long

    Simply how much more can they milk out of the following; a) Little Britain: The painfully unfunny Little Britain USA. Give it a rest and think of something new! Now we're set for these US "celebrities" whoring themselves out (ala Rosie McDonald) to be attached to it. Don't go there USA, the...

    I'm going to be taking part in a charity bike ride to raise funds for Mute Tourette's Syndrome. A friend of mine has a 6 yr old son that suffers from this and we are raising funds to pay for a year's therapy. Mute Tourette's Syndrome has long been in the shadow of its more 'famous'...
  11. A little dilemma

    Yesterday at work I received a call from my 5 year old to say that because she had been the best in the class she was allowed to look after the class room Teddy Bear. I of course told her how exciting it was and that I couldn't wait like a proud dad to get home and see her wonderful trophy...

    TrueBlue Rally Cry

    Gather round once more my children, As Saturday approaches I can see nothing but dark sky's and a mist that hangs in the air for the dark shadow of our pre-season has cast this terrible spell over the club but still there is hope and still there is light, so I call upon all of you that listen...

    50 Things To Do In A Lift

    1. Make race car noises when anyone gets on or off. 2. Blow your nose and offer to show the contents of your kleenex to other passengers. 3. Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: 'Shut up, all of you just shut UP!' 4. Whistle the first seven notes of 'It's a Small...

    WIndies v the Convicts

    As uninspiring as England v NZ (again) is, West Indies v Australia produced some enthralling play to show that it is England who are short of inspiration, not the format or the sport. Two years ago this would have been a gigantic mismatch, but the WIndies are a team finally on an upward curve...

    Thought Of The Day

    You should not got to your grave as a shadow of your former self, with no more than a whimper and a pray. You should go to it flying along with a beer in one hand, cigar in the other, shouting 'Wow! What a ride!'
  18. Rihanna

    That 'Umbrella' song was annoying to the point of torturous, and everything she's done since is just as bad. But I don't care. She's beyond fit and I would crawl a mile over broken glass just to p!ss in her shadow. I've never met her and probably never will, but I love her. Unconditionally.

    The Last Shadow Puppets

    I'm listening to their new song on You Tube called 'The Age of the Understatement'. I have to admit I do really like this song. The video is alright as well, has a bit of a Russian feel to it. Anyone else like song, or do you think that Alex Turner should just stick with being in the Arctic...

    Rasmus - In the shadows

    Just reminiscing, listening to this on youtube and wondered what the SZ faithful's opinion on it was. Nothing taxing, just a poll to brighten up the evening. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azpErXezD8M
