    CheckATrade Trophy Draw - Oxford (H)

    Many people have been asking me these last couple of days when the draw is for the last 32. Well, wait no longer as it's this morning at 10:30am on Sky Sports News. Keen followers of the competition* are already ahead of the game and were enthusiastically following last night's results...

    Bt tv

    I've been looking at getting rid of Sky in favour of BT. For the full package it looks like I'd save a large amount of money, but there seems to be an issue that shouldn't really be there. It seems that you can't have a 2nd box (their equivalent of multi-room) whilst paying for Sky Sports and...

    Season preview for GJ Sports Blog

    My name was put forward, very kindly, by our good friend Kent Shrimper - not normally one to do this sort of thing, but I thought some of you might be interested to read my thoughts on the season ahead. The idea was to have a preview from each of the clubs in the EFL on the blog...

    Phil Brown to other jobs - Rumours and Gossip

    I've never heard such disrespect for the club. You want either the Sunderland job or to be in the England set up, so disrespectful. 2 years ago Lincoln City didn't want you ! Your aspirations cost us last year and is now starting even before the season begins. How can you expect player loyalty...

    Husband needed

    I apologise for the length of the post but I'm curious to see if anyone fits the bill. ​** This marriage advert is clear, legit & real. ** When the true fate brings someone special related to your soul, distance is not an issue with cars & airplanes. I am looking for a true nice...

    So what are you listening to? Any recommendations? Provide a summary if possible. This American Life My 'go to' podcast with almost 600 episodes (I've listened to 100 now, thanks to my commute!). Consistently high quality and interesting, but there are some exceptional pieces of investigative...

  9. PFA Team Of The Year - 2016/16

    Just been announced on Sky Sports News: Just realised, the year typo error.. it must have been a short season this year. Are there any changes you would make to that line up? Ozil perhaps? I would have put Lloris ahead of De Gea myself,
  10. Fan Footage

    Hi guys, I'm going to be making a story of the Blackpool away game like Sky Sports F1 have done here (https://getclipcrowd.com/stories/467) Think it could be quite good for Southend games to make something like this from our fan footage. If you have any photos and videos you want in the story...
  11. Ref Watch .... Blackpool A

    Our first ever game against Blackpool was a 1-0 win 95 years ago. Our most recent game against Blackpool was a 1-0 win, back in November this season. In between times honours are very much even. We have an experienced referee for tomorrow's visit to Blackpool. In charge is Mark Haywood from...

    The Shay at Halifax WAS a joke

    I went to Halifax a couple of times in the late 60s and their ground was a complete joke, from memory on one side they had the smallest stand I have ever seen at a League club which surely couldn't have seated 50. On the other side it was covered but only an embankment underneath where at the...

    Ditching Sky

    I have realised that I do most of my viewing online these days so I am looking at alternatives to Sky. Has anyone got any suggestions they are happy with? I am not bothered about sports or movies.

    What have I missed?

    Right, so what's happened since Boxing DayChristmas*? I heard Brown locked the players in the dressing room for 3 hours after one defeat (that made the main sports page on the BBC!), we seemed to get thumped a couple of times, Bentley saved a last minute penalty on Saturday and we've signed a...

    I miss...

    Having watched football for a long time, things have undoubtedly improved for the better, but there are some things (gone for ever) which I miss.................... Small boys sitting on the wall at matches Paying at the turnstiles Not having to buy tickets in advance Not having to listen on...

    BBC sports personality

    Whilst I was watching the extremely biased BBC sports personality of the year programme the other night, I noticed that the Northern Irish manager Michael O'Neill (as he picked up yet another Irish award presented to him by yet another Irishman) said that he had travelled to Fleetwood to watch...
