    Isle of Grain's chimney stack to be demolished on Sept 7th

    Fred Dibnah fans and general demolition enthusiasts, this iconic part of our view over the Estuary from Leigh to Shoebury is finally getting blown to bits next week! Must admit, I had no idea it was so tall - think I'm going to take the morning off to watch it go...
  2. Damp issue

    In the top room of our victorian terrace, we have a mouldy-damp patch at the top of the chimney stack in the room. There's a photo link below here: http://i43.tinypic.com/2h822jn.jpg When we moved into the house over 2 years ago we thought it was a historic issue and had the room re...
  3. Turner Prize

    Southend never stops to amaze me - one of the judges is Andrew Hunt from the Focal Point gallery in Southend? Anyone ever been? I'm backing Spartacus Chetwynd, as his her name sounds like something from Viz and has no doubt managed to stack some poo bricks into the shape of an elephant in the...
  4. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...
  5. Another Mitchell Murdered in the East End

    The spate of murdered Mitchells in the East End of London was added to once more, as Kevin Mitchell was blown away by a rampant Michael Katsidis at an Upton Park which is growing accustomed to home losses. Much was made of Mitchell’s recent form and his credentials as another English...

    The Fall of Roman's Empire?

    The rumours that Roman Abramovich is attempting to sell Chelsea may have been quickly denied by the club, but when you stack up the numbers, it's all too plausible. Stamford Bridge has been a black hole for the Russian oligarch's cash and, in a year when he's lost so much money elsewhere, it...

    Flavs wanted by Crystal Palace!

    Heard last night from someone directly involved at Palace that Warnock wants either Graham Stack or Darryl Flahavan to be the no.2 at the club. Flavs is first choice but the fact that Warnock don't have a keeper on the bench match days is not that alluring. Don't think he will want to run down...

    Your Worst Song of All time

    I have a new entry in my personal chart and it's "Plain White T's - Hey there Delilah....." :fury: I can't remember wanting to punch someone so much as the **** who sings this. I'm sure he has a valid reason for being a **** - perhaps he was spoilt as a child, being American probably doesn't...
  17. Spin the wheel...

    I did not realise that Southend had a SuperCasino and yet RM seems able to play with high risk stakes. Two seasons ago he kept the squad to a bare minimum and Lady Luck smiled, the wheel turned and The Blues were promoted. Instead of quitting whilst ahead he let his winnings roll on for the...
