    Bafta awards 2009

    Not my favourite way to spend a Sunday evening but the wife loves them so after 180 mins of football on Sky today i thought it would be only fair to watch them with her. My predictions for the main awards are as follows Best Film A 2 horse race between THE CURIOUS CASE OF...

    A man of honour

    I am many things, but I like to think myself honourable. In the thread about the game tonight being on, I said something along the lines of "if the game is on, I will sport an I love Thatcher sig for a month". Unless we have a blizzard of bibilical proportions or I can sneak into the ground...

    Dubai and Qatar tennis events

    Does anyone want to know how the early season events have gone? I seem to have found myself watching almost every game! Good game going on now if you can get yourself either a TV with Eurosport or are allowed to access Betfair.com (streamed on there). Murray has come back from a set down...

    Oi you lot

    Sing up today people right behind the blues, its easy to get bogged down during the Christmas season with so many games but we got the win against Northampton albeit last minute and I don't see ANY reason why we can't sneak a result against MK Dons! SO LETS GO OUT THERE AND SHOW THEM WHAT A...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 8 - Libertine

    This week, recently exiled Andy (Libertine), out in Australia, answers the questions. Below is a picture of Andy and his kids at Surfers Paradise. 1) How long have you been an exile? A) Since August this year. My last game was Millwall away and I flew out the following Monday. 2) Why did...

    Nervous Gunners Slip Through

    Cesc Fabregas is the youngest Arsenal captain since Tony Adams and, appropriately enough, the new era began much like the old one. The Gunners were tentative and unsure of themselves, but recovered their composure to sneak a victory. One nil to the Arsenal? Meet the new boss, same as the old...

    Defending and Midfielding!!

    This isn't really a new point, but as it's topical based on today, thought I'd bring it up again - if nothing else, it gets me nearer to 1,000 posts on here :) Yorkshire Blue and myself (actually, probably most people) have long been saying the problem we have yet to properly resolve with our...

    Question Any Leeds based shrimpers?

    I'm working in Leeds for a couple of days and might try and sneak in the Scunthorpe match Tuesday night. Does anyone know the best way to get there? Train is about 1 hour 20 mins which is cutting it a bit tight. Are there any bus services that might be better?

    Smooth Operator: 27 ways to make girls smile.... NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE

    Number 22 makes me laugh... 1. When she asks how she looks, shrug and say "could be better" - this will keep her on her toes. And girls love that. 2. Never hold her hand. This can be interpreted as a sign of weakness, (or if she grabs your hand, squeeze hers really really hard until she...
  10. Slipperduke


    You would think that, as the single most important match of their history looms up on the horizon, Chelsea might try to put a lid on the gossip and focus on the football, but nothing is ever that simple at Stamford Bridge. Faced with a choice of either (a) clarifying Avram Grant’s future or (b)...

    Film of the summer: Indy vs Batman

    So what do people reckon? I think the big hit of the summer will be one of these two what with Iron Man & Speed Racer already out and Potter 6 / Bond not now out until Autumn / Winter. Here is the last trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull before it hits the screens in...

    The Power of RC Junior!

    I am starting to realise little RC Junior, now only 4 months old, has extremely strong magical powers!! He has now witnessed 11 games this season, in his short 4 months in this world, and we are yet to taste defeat - including the dramatic late win at Carlisle on Saturday. To back this up...

    Boring, boring Chelsea

    Thanks to Chelsea, I’m in a lot of trouble right now. You see, when I cover an away game from the television, I usually take the opportunity to invite a few people over, let them raid my beer fridge and then sit nearest the television with a notepad while they chatter around me. It was only...

    Who would you like to see relegated from the CCC ??

    Must admit that I am finding it a bit difficult to decide who I want to see come down from the league above . A small part of me still hopes we could sneak back up there through the play-offs and therefore hopes that the 'weaker' sides somehow survive to give us a better chance of staying up...
  15. Planning For The Future

    Found this about tonight's youth game against Stoke: Stoke's youth boss Adrian Pennock hails Southend as the best team he has seen this season ahead of tonight's FA Youth Cup fourth-round tie at Roots Hall. Pennock took a sneak preview of Southend when watching them demolish Derby in the...

    Totty Cup 2 - DRAW

    Going into the hat this morning are: Rachel Stevens after her comprehensive 5-3 victory over Beyonce Knowles. Jessica Alba who came from behind in a tight, pulsating affair with Maria Sharapova to sneak through on the away goals rule. Anne Hathaway after dispatching Lillia Kopylova, scoring...

    Totty Cup 1 - Morning Round-Up

    Cuthbert 4 Pinder 5 (Extra-time being played) A real ding-dong battle with Pinder taking the early lead, only for Cuthbert to come from behind and sneak ahead herself. Excellent mid-riff display from Cuthbert, but Pinder seems to have too much for her up top. Currently 5-4 to Pinder in extra...
  18. Uncle Leo


    All match related banter here please ladies and gentlemen. I'm going to stick my neck out and predict that it'll probably be a draw, but if Southend play well we could sneak it. Having said that if Walsall play well, maybe they'll win.

    Reserves and Under-18s

    Southend United's Under-18 side slipped to a second successive defeat, ironically enough at Gillingham yesterday. You can read a report of the match on the Shrimpers Trust website, by clicking: Gillingham U18s 4 Southend United U18s 1 Richard Priest scored the Shrimpers' only goal of the game...

    A New Dawn

    I wake early. The early morning mist of a Summer’s day is readily burnt by the glowing yellow sun rising over south Suffolk’s gently rolling fields. Next doors much despised ****erel, 300 yards away and out of rifle range, announces the event with gusto. I amble downstairs and let out Shrimper...
