    My friendly invasion - Its was all big Bill Garners fault!

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday. The reason for me being prostrate on this beautiful Sunday was I was watching a one day match between Essex and it could have been Warwickshire or...

    So, season is almost over, time to book a holiday... Anyone going anywhere nice?

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Bring me sunshine - Morecambe 0 Southend United 3

    Not the most exciting game I have seen but the 2 early goals led to a rather stress free 90 minutes that followed. The minute silence was impeccably observed and most of the Morecambe crowd continued that silence for the remainder of the match. :winking: A good performance by everyone on the...

    Were Ronnie Martin's comments about Morecambe wise ?

    Ever since he famously declared that 'Southend are not in the same league as Morecambe' that is of course precisely where we have been and without a victory against them to boot. There seems little doubt that these comments have by and large inspired the opposition to raise their game. Lets...
  9. Shetland Isles

    Anyone been? Saw a kids programme the other day and it looks luvverly (though I'd imagine only in the sunshine!). Really quite fancy it at some point.
  10. Colchester in League 2 ??

    Now Wembley aside , it's been a pretty dire year for us in terms of results and football played ( especially at home ). Final game this Saturday and nothing to play for ( for either side ). The only slight ray of Sunshine is the possibility of Col U being relegated and the resurrection of the...

  13. Danny O'Shea off Down Under

    Danny O'Shea has sold Bar Vic and gone to live in Perth where he bought a Coffee shop a few years back. He has been looking for this move for a few years but couldnt shift the Pub. He's a top bloke and always kept an interest in SUFC, alongside the work he did for the Gooners. I always enjoyed...

    C2C delays due to over running engineering works.

    Useless. Two days of glorious sunshine and they still can't finish on time.
  15. Top 10 films of the decade.

    Facebook used as evidence in court

    I work in Liability insurance and this report just came through at work for one of our Insureds: So using Facebook pictures (presumably) as evidence we saved ourselves AUD 228,000 on an estimated settlement! Just goes to show that Big Brother is watching everything these days!!

    Just how bad are things really?

    This isn't intended as a rose tinted post and I am certainly not seeing all things as sunshine and flowers as someone suggested on another thread. But at times like this it is very easy to be swept along on a bandwagon of fear and despair, with an awful lot of statements being made that are...
  19. Which Saturday Would You Smash?

    Last night we threw a bit of a BBQ to celebrate all of our assignment hand-ins and to make the most of the weather the Sunshine coast of Eastbourne had gotten. For some reason or another, we started talking about The Saturdays, and a quite furious debate started. One particular housemate of...

    Michael Owen: The End of an Era

    Just found this piece on a football fans site, it isn't written by a Liverpool or Newcastle fan but it sums the downfall of his career well. Thought it was worth a read.
