  1. The Eternal Optimist

    Breaking News Group 4 Security Van spotted outside Southend Utd main reception

    I think the war chest has arrived and Ron has been seen sporting his sheepskin coat and flat cap in anticipation of smashing the club record with a marquee signing that is more of a "jaw drop" or a "OMG Jesus F*cking H Christ no?" than a "wow". Putting 2 and 2 together, I reckon Jonny Evans or...
  2. A Christmas miracle-WE ARE 6TH!!!!!!!!

    2015 season

    A Brit in the lead at the Critérium du Dauphiné, another Brit currently basking in the glow of smashing the Hour Record and the Tour De France just weeks away. Seems as good a time as any to start a thread about the 2015 cycling season. Well, January would have been a better time but you get my...
  5. Bayern Munich

  8. Hi everyone

    Good afternoon everyone, I'm Paul, I'm 32 and I live in Chelmsford. I've been supporting the Blues for approx 15 years. Usually sit in the East Stand. Can't remember my first game, but it would've been in dark days of Alv*n Martin's reign, so it's a wonder I didn't give it up there & then...I...

    Live Music Experiences.

    After Shrimper James's thread about your festival line-ups, it got me thinking back to the last festival I went to in 2005 and it's one I'll never forget. We all love live music no matter what music we enjoy, there's just something fantastic about hearing and seeing your favourite...

    Sharing a bed with your mates.

    Lads, I am expecting a torrent of gay abuse for his topic - What with living in Brighton and the subject matter but.... Most weekends the lads and I have a sort of pact to meet up on a Saturday night and have a good old booze up. Now this is probably no different from anyone else. However as...

    Wubbish Day.

    :mad: Why are Tuesday always crap?! :mad: I wake up, smack my head then spill my breakfast down me. Anyway, I walked to Rochford Train Station and waited for the train. Whilst I'm waiting for the train to Southend, theres a bunch of teenagers hurling abuse at the people at the station and...
  12. A pessimistic sense of inadequacy?

    I am somewhat perplexed by an apparent all-consuming desire to aim a discontented kick at the football club by the same collection of people on the forum, led with absolute gusto by the likes of CS J and TonytheKray. Their constant bleatings on a wide range of issues from the considered...
  13. Steven Hammell

    I mentioned earlier I will only judge the new players after at least 10 games, cant be easy coming a long way, living in temporary digs and perform to your best. Well this guy gets better and better, the last 3 games he has looked quality, assured first touch, gets tackles in, joins up well...

    Just returned from watching CD Jávea train and spent a couple of hours in the company of Kenny Brown, who made six appearances for the Shrimpers in 1996, on loan from West Ham United. He's about to become the new Director of Football at CD Jávea after a couple of years involvement with FC...
  15. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

    Flavs 7 - Delt well with the late pressure, and the Oldham prats shouting abuse during the 1st half. Hunt 7 - Tidy Game, nothing out of the ordinary though Edwards 7 - Cover well when Hunt and wilson pushed foward Barrett 6 - Still to see the best of Adam yet, good performance, but gave the...
