  1. Be an Angel - Back a New Horror Film

    My Niece's husband is a very decent indeed writer and producer of Horror films. They are looking to raise £14,000 on Kickstarter to fund their next project, so from as little as £10, which you only pay if the Film raises the funds, you can be involved, get your name in the credits, get a digital...

    First ten games

    I've had a look at some former managers and how they fared in their first ten games. I took it back to Booby Moore's spell. Not including Brown's tenure, the worst start over 4 games is actually Colin Murphy with 4 straight losses. Whelan and Thompson started with 2 losses each as well. Quite...

    The Ashes 2013

    Sooooo, anyone care to speculate on the biggest sporting event of the year? England massive favorites on Betfair. I wonder if it will play that way.....Maybe I (along with others) am being paranoid what with it being Australia. You never know what they'll produce. Michael Clarkes form has...
  5. WG Grace would not be amused!

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/jan/14/england-cricketer-sarah-taylor-mens-match Thin end of the PC wedge or a step forward? Why not those Englishmen not good enough for the first team to play in England's Women's team? Discuss!

    Vale struggling for players

    Just seen this on a vale forum, looks like they are struggling. And for probably the first time this season we have practically a full strength squad available and also competition for places etc. I actually feel like we have a geniune chance of a good run coming up. Valiants short of numbers...

    just did some googling of the trialists we had over the summer, and wikipedia and a couple of other football sites have rhys taylor down as a southend player. did i miss this signing or something?:unsure:
  11. southend_aussies

    Have I missed something?

    Nearly on every website to do with Chelsea it has said we have signed Rhys Taylor on a free. Have we? Or have these website completely lost the plot. Even the Guardian has it too. http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/aug/11/premier-league-2012-13-club-guide

    RIP-Jack Taylor

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/jul/27/jack-taylor-referee-dies My favourite Jack Taylor story is his reply to Johhny Haynes after the late great JH complained to him about a goal that JT had just given. JH:That was never a goal,Ref. JT.You have a look at the paper...
  15. Todays first half keeper- Taylor

    Presume this is the man: Rhys Taylor- Looked and certainly sounds interesting... Born in Neath, West Glamorgan, Taylor played mainly in the Chelsea Reserves and the Youth Team but occasionally got called to sit on the bench when another goalkeeper got injured. He joined Queens Park Rangers on...
  16. Hi to fellow shrimpers out there

    Just to say a quick hello. Although have lived in the darkest north for the last 20 odd years, I try and get to see the odd Southend game when I can, eg Burton away last weekend and Shrewsbury & Accrington also away. My first memories go back to 1972 to 1980 in the days of Best, Moody, Brace...

    Damilola Taylor Killer Released...Again

    What do we make of this? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-16722402 The guy has been released, broken the terms of his release, put back in prison, and now released again. He has also shown zero remorse. Should he be allowed out if he's shown no remorse? To me that's an interesting...

    Michael Clarke

    Convict Captain Clarke declares half way through day 3 on 329*. Very unselfish I'd say he was 5 away from equalling Mark Taylor's 334 as the highest score by a convict skipper and 5 away from Bradman. Beyond that and with the time available he could have gone on to beat Lara's 400* and still had...

    Peter Taylor

    Spotted the ex Southend Player + manager at Roots Hall walking into the ground from the car park. I thought maybe he was on a scouting job but according to his wiki site he is Bahrain National team manager. Maybe just enjoying a shocking display of football from the blues on a cold afternoon.
  20. Oldham Athletic Report

    I went along to Bournemouth v Oldham on Saturday to take a closer look at next week’s FA Cup opponents. The game finished 0-0 and was absolutely dire – if we are to go up this season, and if this match is indicative of the quality of the bottom half of L1, we should be fine in that...
