    Dale Farm vs Stray Dog Home

    And so Basildon Council decide to spend millions reclaiming Dale Farm and now decide just a few hundred metres away to give away green belt land to allow a dogs home for strays to be built. Seriously Tony Ball, what are you doing?! Even the usual right of centre readers of the Echo are...

    Worst/Most Annoying TV Adverts.

    For me it's those ****ing Microsoft adverts, you know those ones where they set up a shop in some poor unsuspecting sod's home to shame them into buying a new computer. As if they're saying "******** here thinks her current pc is 'ok', WELL IT'S NOT, BUY A NEW ONE OR YOU WON'T BE UP TO DATE AND...

    Dwight Yorke - Born to Score

    BORN TO SCORE? What would you do if you were a professional footballer? How would you act? I know what you're going to say, you're going to say the same as me. You're going to say that you'd give it everything. You're going to say that you'd be tee-total, that you'd train hard, that you'd...

    Billy Paynter news

    From Swindon's Evening Advertiser (STFC midfielder Craig Easton's column): After the great Ashes win and the not so good on-going one day international series against Australia, there’s been quite a bit in the press about cricketers playing football as a warm-up, and getting injured! Well...

    Is it easier to turn down a dirt bag or a girl next door.

    Last Saturday after laying out 17 of our own supporters in the West I drove home as fast as the DtS Love Jeep could carry me as I had a works night out. Having been made redundant from the job I loved in the city last May I am currently working for a bank closer to home. The work is pretty...

    Cricket-Boks vs Straya

    Anyone watching the SA/Aus test? Caught the first couple of overs before heading out this morning, really tempted to pull a sickie to watch the day's play - should be a fascinating series.

    Macca broken nose!

    Macca got a broken nose from a stray elbow yesterday. Hopefully he'll be fit for Tuesday. Apparently the police and Paul Brush had to practically pull Tilly away from the ref Gavin Ward at the end.
  12. Interpol Shrimper

    Question Samsung Tocco, is it any good? (& other phone questions)

    Is this the phone TrueBlue was going on about how good it is recently? It's upgrade time for me & Vodafone in their usual inimitable style have got a patheticly rubbish selection of Nokias (I swore last upgrade when I got my BlackBerry that I flogged onto a certain poster on here that I'd...

    Official Match Thread Southend v Peterborough

    Off to catch my flight - so taking the liberty of setting this thing up nice and early ;) Shall be an interesting one today - but if we can keep their strikers reasonably quiet we have every chance of winning. Who will be playing in the middle of the park, in light of Bailey's alleged comments...

    Avram Grant Part 2

    The lone figure on the touchline hunched his shoulders and pulled his long coat closer in the bitterly cold wind. Around him, 40,000 angry supporters howled at him in derision. "You don't know what you're doing!" they roared. "You don't know what you're doing!" The figure remained still, unmoved...

    Some of you probably dont beleive in reincarnation but deep down we all have our little tendancies to stray from the norm and do something completley out of character. With me its simply this.... I Beleive that I am the reincarnation of the one and only "BOB MARLEY" I cant explain excactly why...
  17. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    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...
  18. Coventry Game

    I was impressed with a much improved display this week.  The lads fought and battled hard, and had more desire than they showed in the Cardiff game.  If they pull up their socks and continue to play like that, results will come. Didn't think much of Coventry and don't expect them to be...
  19. Simon Francis

    Seeing as its a bit of a free-for-all on our own players at the moment... Simon Francis - I've already stated tonight that I'm worried about Francis performances. What do you think? Heres my fors and againsts from the matches I've seen Francis play (all bar Bournemouth this...

    Roots Hall atmosphere

    I've heard and read a lot about the fact that the atmosphere at Roots Hall is not what it should be and that certain fans (as I have always known it) get on the player's backs as soon as they play a stray pass or do something else wrong (or if we're not 1-0 up after 15 mins). I have...
