  1. Paul Sturrock : Will he walk ?

    IMHO Sturrocks has pulled off a massive miracle to get us anywhere a play off position. Back in August he had no squad, no money and was having to cancel friendlies. Sure some of the players he has brought in since have proved to be disappointing but others we must be desperate to get sign...
  2. Do you think we're skint, broke, penniless, got no money ????

    5 million quid from sainsburys, the biggest gates in lge 2, good income from player sales - all our players on lge 2 money (salary cap) and sitting on a retail site worth zillions - tax man paid off - I cannot understand why anyone would believe for one minute we are broke -

    A rant.

    1. Chanting '****ing Useless to our own player who puts his ****ing heart into his performances, doing what nobody else wants to do, the ****ing dirty work. 2. Cheering when Rhys Evans catches the ball. Brilliant. 3. Constant moaning. 4. Chanting the Seagull louder than anything else. 5...

    This is England '86

    Anyone else been watching this? As much as i like the original film, this hasnt really hit the spot for me. Its kind of good, but i cant help thinking that whoever has written it has watched a few to many episodes of Skins.

    The County Championship crap batting thread (formerly Derbyshire 9/6)

    Derbyshire were 9/6 and I am talking score rather than odds. Not a Pakistani in sight either. Have now recovered to 31/8 and have avoided the ignomy of Statski's SorrySurrey, who were once bowled out for 14 by the mighty Essex.

    Sheena and Morris

    How are our rejects settling in? I've had it on good authority that Morris was only released because we're too skint to give him a testimonial. So neck-and-neck to see who goes out of business first, as well as enjoying a point-for-point battle in our respective divisions. Joy. J_S

    New Season - Wages etc

    Wages up from £536k to £587k. I can deal with that. I am however skint so might have to sell a batsman. Hoping a couple of home cup games may mean I can avoid that.

    Articles in Todays Echo - Dated 2/07/2010

    This has been copied word for word from todays echo. The two page spread on pages 8-9. A Lot of it is what we knew already, we up a creak without a paddle, and most probably a raft as well. Taxman Targets Blues…Again (Taken from the Echo, pages 8-9) This time the club owes £200,000...

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...

    Con/Lib agreement in full - in summary

    1. Deficit Reduction The country is skint, cuts will be made to make life harder for working families but still allow big businesses to dodge as much tax as possible. 2. Spending Review - NHS, Schools and a Fairer Society Cuts 3. Tax Measures Minimal tax cuts for the masses (enough to get...
  14. Pound for Pound King Mayweather Reigns Blows Over Molesley

    The American public have never taken to the showboating arrogance of Floyd Mayweather Junior, so much so that they tend to cheer for his opponent... Such was the magnitude of his performance, the watching audience couldn't help but cheer Pretty Boy Floyd resoundingly. In the build-up, much was...
  15. Would you have her courage?

    On Mr B's "Pictures of Birds" thread, Boris posted up a picture of a lady called Sarah Jane Howe. It was a bit different from the others on the thread because, as Boris pointed out, she seemed to have no nipples. Below is her story - and as asked in the thread title, would you have her courage?

  18. well known supporter from the North bank 70's and 80's

    I have seen my name mentioned on the forum and wonder if anyone remembers me, my name is Keith Mcghie and I moved to Scotland in 1981 after supporting southend since the late 60's. I supported us through some bad times and remember some great laughs in the North bank. Memories are a guy called...

    Choosing your government is like choosing a girlfriend....?

    "Choosing a government is as random as choosing a girlfriend or boyfriend. Some small, probably irrelevant or misunderstood thing can draw you in or drive you away. They put on their best front and hide all the bad stuff until they’ve won you over and you stay with them until the opportunity for...

    Will you use Pre Pay cards?

    What crackpot thought up this stupid idea? The owners of Southend United must be deliberately trying to send the club skint. Mine dropped through the door today, and what it basically means is that from the Brentford game no cash can be spent at the West Stand concessions from then onwards...
