    Is an 8k average achievable ?

    The club are and have been looking to average 8k at home next season. Is this achievable. It's been probably 10 or so years since this happened. We do have a good few clubs this season that will bring a decent away support. Bradford Charlton Sheff Utd Coventry Millwall Oxford Brizzle...

    Had a few beers in the sun...as you do. I look at much of the debating and offer an opinion now and then. However, we all support and many love Southend United Football Club. We approach another season where none of us whatsoever have much idea how we will do. We all hope for the best. I have...

    Was a contestant on Countdown Monday which he lost. Apparently he's stopped being a taxi driver though and now works as a support worker for autistic children.
  7. Hello.....

    Hi everyone, I had to come up with a username so couldn't resist MrsTwistandShout due to the fantastic away crowd singing this song and doing a conga around Bury's stadium, which I had the pleasure to be part of for the final game of the season...The atmosphere and mood of the away support was...

    Time for a positive post

    Here is a comparison between our last 16 matches last season, and our first 5 of that period this season. May I remind a lot of people we were also doing the same doom and gloom last year before Brown turned it around. He may have been doing extra things at training to prepare the team for the...

    Question Bristol Rovers confirm take over and not us, why?

    Bristol Rovers confirm takeover and not us, why? I see that Bristol Rovers have been taken over by a Jordanian billionaire and he wants to get the stadium under way. They did have planning permission in place I believe, so that may be the attraction for said businessman. Maybe we would be as...

    Was at the Alloa vs. Rangers game on the weekend with hospitality. Speaking to the Alloa board who are convinced they have a great prospect on their hands. Must admit, he didn't shine but how can you if the ball is always pumped up in the air with no support!
  11. Fair play and thanks

    Didn't seem appropriate to jump on the other thread (now closed) but given I occasionally post on here only fair I come out of hiding and say fair play on both results in the Derby this season (unfortunately likely to be the last for a while I suspect) My main reason for posting though is to...

    Does Hell give off heat or does it absorb it?

    "Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your answer with a proof." This was an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry midterm: Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools off when it expands and...
