    John White has a blog!

    Apologies if this is already common knowledge, but it came as news to me. I only stumbled upon it because I was checking out the Zone's latest sponsor and it's at the bottom of the page Who's Woody - is that Wordsworth? Bolger obviously didn't get on with the squad as he alone doesn't seem...

    Southend featured in Football Weekends

    Just stumbled across this magazine in Rayleigh. And picked it up as I was interested in the cover story about Scandinavian football, then something caught my eye in the top right corner... There's even a good mention of The Blue Voice in there, I guess it must have been the Luton game as the...

    Did I Spot Our Man In Penzance

    For the last two weeks I have been lurking in Cornwall with the wife and kids. Now for someone who has been going down that neck of the woods for 30+ years you might have thought I would have pretty much covered the lot but nope, I doubt I have even scratched the surface. One of the places I...

    I know there has been a lot of talk about the clubs finances lately but I stumbled across this recently and wasn't sure if anyone else had seen it and thought I would share. It makes for interesting reading...

    Look what I just stumbled across...

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/s/southend_utd/7483949.stm Who would have thought we'd still be in this position seeing as 5 years ago we were led to believe we would have been playing in the new stadium 3 years ago! :facepalm:

    Going through the garage

    was looking for something in the garage earlier when I stumbled upon my parents old LP collection after telling them they said they dont want them so sell them. I will post on here what I have found but the first one I picked up was an original Sgt Peppers LP are these kind of things worth...
  7. Its Only A Game

    uploading files

    I stumbled across Birmingham City's accounts and audit report yesterday which quite sadly I found interesting, particularly the audit report. In light of todays mass hysteria over Gary Lockett leaving etc etc I thought it might be nice for some to see that there are others in more trouble than...

    Can someone enlighten me please?

    I don't think I've ever stumbled across this forum before, but I see that on various threads on reputation, DWB and Barna are at it again... so, please can someone tell me... what is grey rep and what is the point of it?
  9. Found this Website and unusually it covers us as one of its featured teams

    Not sure if this is the right forum but stumbled on this website LINK DELETEDand it has us as one of its featured teams - looks pretty good to me for Birthdays etc and unusual to have us as an option. What do you think?

    How many grounds have you seen Southend play at?

    Knowing how footy fans like to tally up their grounds, I thought I'd share a decent site I stumbled across. It's by the same people who run the Facebook's (ask your kids Cricko) footballground app. I also thought it would be nice to do something that wasn't related to Ron, or finance, or the...

    Pointless Trivia List

    Whilst enroute to Accrington last night, in an effort to break up the tedium of motorway travel TB, Olli, Jiggens and i were trying to "out trivia" each otherwith various football facts you mostly didnt know, and certainly didnt care about then or now Anyway i thought i'd stumbled upon a...

    Canvey vs FC Twente

    Just stumbled across this little blog, an interesting enough read for those with half an eye on the Essex non-league scene. Very much looking forward to those Canvey vs Concord derbies, I'll be there cheering on the Rangers...

    BOGMISH Rd 1:4 - LDV v Championship

    Not the most inspiring round today following yesterday's nail-biter (voting still open), but we've got Donkey Broughton's goal up against some optimism in the sun. First up is Silencer's choice, which surprisingly appears to be the only nomination involving Col Ewe (presumably as people were...

    Life In Tottenham

    Grown men bounce into each other like rubber balls on the street outside, screaming incoherently at each other in beery ecstasty. At the front door, a woman tries desperately to light a cigarette in shaking hands, eventually giving up and asking the bouncer to help, tears of joy in her eyes. All...

    Time For Chelsea To Grow Up

    WHAT’S GONE WRONG AT CHELSEA? For six years, Chelsea have been a relentless winning machine, but that arrogant sense of superiority has faded away. In its place is hesitancy, vulnerability and a worrying inability to dictate the flow of games. Chelsea are dropping points so frequently that...

    Cheap Gifts to Keep the Doris Happy

    Dear all, I was thinking when I received 2 PMs in the space of a week and had to turn down a beer before a Southend game due to prior commitments with the bird that I should start sorting my priorities. She is a good lass. However, not comparable to football. I hate that she does not like...

    The Internet Is Rubbish

    If this is the future then build me a time machine because I preferred it in the past. If I ever have to watch another game of football on my laptop, then there's going to be trouble. Nothing violent obviously, I'm far too weedy for a public rampage, but I tell you what, there'll be some fairly...
