  2. What really happened in Vegas

    The official story has been changed several times and is still does not add up. Many of you will have been to Vegas and know how your are watched night and day. So to follow on from a debate started on the Trump thread........Here goes for starters Why haven't we seen any CCTV of Paddock on...

    Specialist subs

    Inspired by someone seemingly slagging off Jermaine McGlashan as a bad signing and not realising his value as a sub, what other Southend players were more effective as subs* than as starters? *Used subs only, so D*ewe B*oughton doesn't count

  7. Ref Watch ..... Gillingham A

    Well our last six League matches at Gillingham have finished WDLDWL, so things couldn't have been much more even. After "something old" at Chesterfield (Graham Salisbury, who I thought had a pretty decent match unlike some), we have "something new" at Priestfield. The referee is in his first...
  8. Getting a new bathroom

    Hi all, We're thinking it's time to upgrade our bathroom. It's old and worn and although a reasonable size it doesn't have a separate standalone shower (which we'd love). In one corner there's a chimney breast coming through, and attached to this is the old airing cupboard which now houses the...

    Gomis closing in on debut, outwide ?

    Seems that whilst we thought he was a specialist defensive midfielder Phil Brown fancies him as wide player, which would be great if he can play there. Sounds like he might be playing in the coming games...

    Kid is doing well. To date it has been another positive season for the Academy’s Under-18s, Kit Symons’ side catching the eye with their attacking philosophy and exciting brand of football. With no shortage of creative quality, Lyle Della Verde is one who has certainly attracted attention...

    Memory Lane A nod to last year's unfortunately relegated superstars...

    They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good... 1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying...

    London to Southend BHF Bike Ride (Sunday 17th July)

    Some of you may know, some may not but I took up cycling about 16 months ago now after being rejected by a Virgin Gym for being too unhealthy...well high BP actually. Seems they dont like unfit people joining their gyms. Having done a few bike rides in the last year, including the london...

  19. 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?
