    Last ten games of post-war managers

    I know it's not an exact science, but I thought I'd have a look at post-war managers and their last ten games, for comparison with our current manager. I've given a win 3 points and a draw one point for consistency's sake. Also bear in mind that some managers were sacked and some left to bigger...

    Now I know a few people on here play Word. It's a game similar to Scrabble for those not in the know. Every now and then, when I play on my phone, it flips into the kind of ad that you don't want, usually an "adclick" type of page. You can normally just press "back" and get out of it...

    Kevan HURST

    I've been reading fairly regularly on these forums that Kev is 'finished', 'past it', 'legs have gone', 'needs moving on', etc. I've also been to games recently where there have been audible groans when his name is read out - even people shouting at him to 'go away' (or similar) when he misses a...
  4. Copy Tottenham?

    After the way we shaped up against Coventry, whereby full-backs bombing on was vital, I was wondering if Mr Brown will copy Pochettino's ploy of rotating his wing-backs. One week Rose and Walker, the next Trippier and Davies. They are a key part of his system whereby he demands high intensity...

    So, could you manage without Facebook and/or Twitter?

    I’m not a big user of either, more of a lurker in the background when certain stuff is pointed out to me to look at. So how integral are they to your everyday life? Could you exist without them if they got turned off for security reasons, or something similar, as part of measures introduced...

    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"...

    England Cricket Canine XI

    In a similar way to Rob Noxious who could not sleep and the only way to do so was to think of a Smokey Joe XI - see the Football forum - I had insomnia last night and Jack Russell dogs came to mind; and as a result I started to think of an England Cricket Xi made up entirely of dog-themed...

    One year on...

    So, now things are starting to settle down and the transfer window has closed, a quick analysis of how we've progressed from last year. Bentley Bentley = / + White White = Coker Coker = Ibenfeldt (Glen Rea) Improved Thompson Thompson = / + Prosser Prosser = Worrall Worrall =...
  9. Breaking News Ted Smith named in England U20 squad

    Named in England U20 squad. http://www.thefa.com/news/england/development/2015/aug/u20s-squad-named-for-czech-republic-270815 One of only 2 players from the "smaller" clubs if you count Peterborough as similar to us.
  10. Question Should we do this or something similar? - Jayden Parsons

    You've all probably seen this. I think it was an excellent tribute from the Crewe fans. With that game being played as recently as last week, and seeing as our visit on Monday is their next home game after the Crewe fixture, should we do something similar...
  11. trauma

    I have had a traumatic few months and seek advice. After nearly 13 years in a senior role it became clear that my number was up. I took a voluntary severance deal which leaves me ok sort of financially but my confidence and self esteem have taken a pounding. I have had anxiety attacks and feel...

    Up and running in france as well

    My French side Toulouse football club started theri campaign in pouring rain (didn't I just know it as I was packing up my soggy things not far from the ground!). Worth sharing this video for two incredible and similar toulouse free-kicks. Think Saint-Etienne may have a bit of work to do on...

    We have until midday today to register any new permanent signings so they are eligible to face Fleetwood Town tomorrow. So, if we want Jack Smith, Owen Garvan, Joe Pigott, Stephen McLaughin, Izale McLeod, the striker who is training with a Championship side to play against Fleetwood, expect to...
  14. Pre -Season friendlies

    I was Just looking on the official site at our pre - season friendlies, and it lists 7 (adding to that Grays Athletic and Chelmsford) obviously makes 9 matches. My question to all out there in the know..... historically do you think thats about the average norm , or in your opinion too little...
  15. Question Would you sign Kevin Davies?

    Just seen that Kevin Davies has been released. My question is would you be happy if he joined Southend? I know he is in the twilight of his career, but he still did a good job at Preston last season. I know he doesn't have the pace but he provides something different, similar to what Goater...

    Car Insurance - total rip off

    Just got my insurance renewal on our people carrier... Endsleigh have increased our premium by 43% !! Yes, 43 PERCENT - due to a claim made last year, when my wife was victim to a hit and run after another car rammed our car. Subsequently we paid the £300 excess as the po-lice were unable to...

    Tranmere shows what could happen

    Despite the fact that Ron gets abused on this site on a regular basis, Tranmere Rovers proofs just how hard it is to make a club of this size pay for itself and flourish. Lets look at Southend and Tranmere. Both have spent the majority of their life's kicking around the bottom 2 levels of the...

    Veggie sausages!

    Maybe a bizarre post but few years back I had some veggie sausages in Swanage. They were like spring rolls, full of bean sprouts. I have looked for similar in various supermarkets but can't find anything like them. Anyone know where to find them? (I said it was a bizarre post!)
