    Strange things that happen on holidays

    Prompted by Kaymacs post in the where would you like to live thread. It was I think about 1983 when I went to Vancover for a few months, I have relatives there and always wanted to visit the place. I met up with a guy and his wife, I forget their names now, but he asked me, "Would I help him...
  2. Aquarium & fish giveaway

    Need a bit of help....I've got a few tropical fish that I need to shift (including the tank & equipment) but obviously I want to give them to a good home rather than flush them down the loo. Can anyone recommend a website or a service, as a few I've tried have been bollox? Alternatively if...

    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...

    Question Wycombe (A)

    In the middle of a night shift and just wondering (early days I know), but are many of us planning on going to Wycombe on the 13th? They appear to average 3,500-4,000 in total for their home games...be good if we took "a few" to cheer the team on :thumbsup:

    Question Guess how many Shrimpers are heading North tomorrow?

    I'm going for 297. Not a very exciting night shift, consequently not a very thrilling/controversial question!

    Prime Ministers again

    I tend to remember Prime Ministers by stuff that happens/happened on their shift. I also think that they are defined as successful if not too much bad stuff happens. Although not everything that has occurred news-wise whilst Cameron has been captain has been his fault directly, he has...

    Question Does anyone know...

    .., somewhere in Southend, SE a Essex, that buys vinyl records? Only got 40 or so to shift, mostly late 90's early 2000 dance 12inches. Have looked at HTFR online, but likely to pay in postage what I'd get back! Not expecting a lot for them, but would rather get something than skipping them...
  9. Early kick offs

    Been racking my brains trying to think when we last had to play at noon, does anyone have any idea? It will be interesting to see how Mr Brown will prepare the troops, as quite often the shift to an earlier kick-off can really unsettle teams (take Arsenal for example)......

    Question Can anyone remember a fitter midfield ?

    I've been watching the Blues for over Forty Years and am struggling to remember a fitter midfield than we have at the moment. The Engines that Atkinson, Timlin and Leonard have are amazing. The sight of Atkinson chasing a through ball in the 90th minute today just to close down their keeper...

    Question Unused Substitutes Who Never Made a 1st Team Appearance For Southend

    Was just sitting down in the middle of my night shift trying to recall some of the players who have been named as sub for Southend that have never gone on to make a first team appearance for the club. Zoltan Liptak, George Smith, Clark Masters and the bloke who came on a season loan from...
  12. Freddy must put in a shift

    Some of you will be choking on your lunch as one of the blues greats is in danger of being an also ran,In his prime he was lazy but had that yard of pace and eye for goal which made him a united legend,Injuries and father time and looking overweight will not help Freds cause.Since 2007 Fred has...
  13. Should Martin be listed

    Iam begining to wonder if David Martin should now come off the transfer list .In the last games he has started he has put in a good shift for the club .In truth he had not put in the performaces he should have done . But over the last few weeks he has started he and Hurst has put defences under...

    Memory Lane BLUES Thrash OLDHAM/New Ground on hold

    Well it’s not exactly “Breaking News” as this news broke sixty years ago when in Season 1951-52 Southend beat Oldham 5-0 in the second round of the Cup while an announcement was made about the new stadium (Roots Hall) being delayed. This how it was in early December 1951...
  17. Shrimpers are Magic

    Where do you see us in ten years from now

    I'm really bored waiting for my night shift to start - this one a little off the top of my head but here goes anyway - Will we have a new stadium ? Will we be in the promised land of 2nd tier pro football ? Will Ron Martin still be around ? Will Harris have his contract extended ? Will Freddie...

    Hello from Melbourne, Australia. I was registered here a few years back as Tygaman but my account lapsed once I stopped working shift work and could no longer waste work time lurking in the SZ chat room on match days. Been following the Shrimpers from afar for over 10 years now and have made...
  19. Breaking News Travesty, Other teams are following our lead!

    My good friend who is a bradford city fan thought i should see this...http://www.bradfordcityfc.co.uk/page/News/0,,10266~2385335,00.html. I can't believe other teams are adopting the pink kit, Nike must be trying to shift a load of unsold ones!
