    Cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin

    Back in August after watching the Netflix documentary "banking on bitcoin", I made a small investment (£100) in bitcoin. It had already rocketed in value so I was reluctant to invest a significant amount, I wish I had now as my £100 is now worth £210 and I have doubled my money. There are many...

    Brown will not speculate on how long (CP Tweet) From https://www.hss.edu/conditions_muscle-injuries-overview.asp Grade 2: More extensive damage with more muscle fibres involved. However, the muscle is not completely ruptured. These injuries present with significant loss of strength and motion...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 3-1 Sheffield United

    Superb performance and result! At half time things could easily have gone the way of Rochdale, the defending for their goal was shocking and we looked nervous at the back throughout, but that was still a quality performance. Bentley 7 Couple of shaky moments but did everything he had to do well...

  5. Ref Watch ....... Blackpool H

    League matches against Blackpool are nicely balanced at seven wins each (with two draws) but we have won four out of our last five home matches against them. Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his 7th year as a League referee and refereeing his 10th Southend game. It will be...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...

    So how good IS Daniel Bentley anyway...?

    There are already a number of threads on bids, contracts, tribunals, etc so we won't cover those here. Instead I want to focus a bit on the talent. Last week I had the opportunity to watch England at Wembley (from a very similar viewpoint/seating position to the one I have at Roots Hall) and...
  8. Well done to the Shrimper's Trust

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-33650543 Joking aside, this is massive news and a huge credit must go to the WHO and others. A couple of years ago, 9 polio vaccinators were shot dead in Nigeria - so this outcome is brilliant, given Nigeria is a difficult place to operate. I did a study...
  9. Consolidation First Priority.

    Now the euphoria of going up has died down, the mandate for the club must be to stay up, build a platform to improve the overall strength of SUFC both on and off the field. I'll settle for a couple of seasons in L1 if we continue to improve and move the club forward. Unless there is major, new...

    Southend United's David Worrall dedicates crucial winner at Bury to son Noah who trag

    SOUTHEND United star David Worrall has dedicated his hugely significant match-winning strike at Bury to his son Noah who tragically died 45 minutes after his premature birth. More...
  11. Ref Watch ...... Tranmere H

    Tranmere have definitely had the better of the matches between the two clubs that have taken place on a fairly regular basis since the abolition of Div 3 North and South. We haven't had a 0-0 with them at Roots Hall for 20 years though. Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his...
  12. Ref Watch ......... Wycombe A

    Our last three matches at Wycombe have gone ... lose ... win ... lose - our turn next ! This refwatch is very much a cut and paste for me as it is the same official we had for the Chester Cup defeat just 5 weeks ago - our last defeat ! Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his...
  13. Ref Watch Cup Refwatch .... Chester H

    It's just a few weeks short of 10 years since we last hosted Chester at the Hall; a late, late goal from substitute, Laurie Dudfield was the only score of the match. My first memories of Chester home matches were the two 5-1 home wins in successive seasons in the mid-60s. Away games are clearly...

    Latest Rumours Deck chairs to be installed on fourth side of new stadium ?

    A friend of mine who works in the Amenities department at SBC has tipped me the wink that the Council are close to finalising a deal with uncle Ron to use the fourth side of the stadium as a store for the seafront deck chairs during the winter months. Apparently the bank of earth that will...

    Housing "crisis" idea

    Apparently some 25% of adults live alone. I imagine a significant proportion live in a house (as opposed to a flat). So how about this... a grant from central funds to convert your house into two flats (e.g. a downstairs shower room/toilet/basin. an upstairs kitchen/ette) and planning permission...
  16. Memory Lane Three matches in nine days

    My trip to finally see Southend live, is now officially done and dusted, but the memories will live on. Made possible by an amazing 16 year old son, who spent his hard earned savings on tickets and my beautiful wife who encourage it and covered the accommodation and spending money... :thumbsup...
  17. Ref Watch ........ Rochdale H

    Tomorrow's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his 5th year as a League referee and refereeing his 5th Southend home game. These five years are either side of a two year gap when he was demoted for performance reasons. As a result his last couple of visits to the Hall have been as an...

    Question Blue Voice - North or West?

    Serious question this one people...
