    Ron Martin, Please Get us out of This Embargo

    Firstly let me say that I am really excited about the position we now find ourselves in. We are third in the table with a chance of going top on Saturday, and are playing football that I enjoy watching. But, my issue is that, at the moment, we’re getting away with it. We have had a number of...

  3. Ref Watch .......... York

    The referee for tomorrow's cut price game is Darren Sheldrake from Kingston in Surrey who is in his fifth year as a Football League referee.

    Things that have impressed you today

    An opposite thread for the thing that are hacking you off today. Bought a watch via Amazon a couple of weeks ago. Although apparently water resistant up to 100 metres, it misted up after a swim in a 1.5m pool and the chronos stopped working. Was expecting a drawn out returning process but was...
  7. Ref Watch ........ Wycombe A

    The referee for tomorrow's game at Wycombe is Darren Sheldrake from Kingston in Surrey who is in his fifth year as a Football League referee. He comes into this match on the back of not one, but two, controversial performances in the last week. He sent off Burnley's goalkeeper at Brighton for...

    Restaurant Scores on the doors

    Do you refuse to eat anywhere if they have a low rating? I have stopped going to a few places after checking their ratings online. Luckily the Mumtaz Mahal in Benfleet has five stats so I won't starve.
  9. Poetry Corner - Bilel Mohsni.

    As Bilel Moshni leaves after an eventful few years - I have swifly written my own interpretation of his time at SUFC. I have tried to make it as balanced as possible. Mohsni left the blues today, His services no longer required, We've let him go on a freebie, Cos his contract has expired...
  10. Lets move on!

    Can we all please stop this Sturrock would've done better than Brown bollox. The Season is over with Sturrocks team. He brought all of these players in during his time with us. I'm not buying all the Sturrock love in. Yes he seems like a top man who has left with great dignity, yes he done a...

    Cup success and the price we are paying for it

    When Paul Sturrock has the time to reflect of this season, will he be ironically regretting the fact that his luck in Cup Competitions changed? It seems to be the fashion at the moment on here to furnish reasons for our expected failure again in gaining promotion from the basement...

    Off to Florida soon and had an email from the villa owner saying I had to get an International Driving Permit as its a new law introduced on the 1st Jan 2013 but hardly publicised. Never heard of it and checked RAC and Post Office but both say recommended only. However the AA site shows : R –...

    Rattle The Cage

    So the Wee Birdie has stopped his chirpings again after two dismal performances. I miss his Stats. and talk of 'knocking it to the right areas'. I guess he'll wait to we have another win before he raises his beak again. Well I think we should rattle his cage and get him airborne . Explanations...

    Question Stadium Program/Announcements for my Grandad RIP

    Quick question, My grandad, Ted Lewis, passed away last week. He was 94 and a season ticket holder for over 40 years after moving to Southend in 1955. He used to go to lots of reserve games too and used to offer his 'advice' to whoever was in charge apparently! He sat at the back of the West...

Originally on the opposite side of the High Street, partially where the Royals now stands, one of my favourite places to eat, from way back when I was young. Used to be a birthday treat to go there, have one of their delicious...
