  1. Mugged in Southend

    Someone tried to mug me last night. After living in the town for over 30 years this is the first time this has happened to me. I was walking back from Herbies near Southchurch Park when I sensed two youths were following me on the other side of the park railings. They had hoodies on and I felt...

    Essex FA

    The U14 football team my son plays for had a game abandoned by the ref in late November 8 minutes before the end of the game because the opposition manger threatened the ref and the ref wasn't going to accept being threatened. We all heard the manager threaten the ref so we know it happened...

    Southern Rail Unions

    time to get them abolished, they are taking the ****! the odd strike here and there when it is right to do so is acceptable in my opinion (although unions going on strike when the average Joe is not able to is an unfair privilege in my opinion) . What Southern workers are doing is a)...
  5. Are we Shrimpers tin pot?

    Afternoon lads, Had a big of a barney in the boozer last night with a some muggy Leicester City. It all started off civilized, bit of banter over water-down lager, fruity's and brass, but after returning from the khazi, the soppy mug started giving it large - calling Southend tin pot. I told...

    As most of you will know, the Royal Terrace is considered one of the jewels in the crown of Southend-on-Sea as a resort, its guest houses have long proved popular and we've promoted one on here in the past, as a Southend supporting owner. Recently, squatters moved into a vacant property that...

    England fans abroad

    The current crowd disturbances in France always seem to involve England supporters in some way or the other. Either as victims or aggressors our fans are never out of the headlines. Once you give a dog a bad name it never goes away and that, again, seems to be the case in France. What annoys me...

    Relegation Issues

    Well, with 41 points so far and another 19 games to go it would take a collapse of a monumental scale for Southend to be any where near the relegation zone come the end of the season ............. the fact that we have been up in the top third of the table for much of the time is a fabulous...

  11. Grant Shapps

    So nothing about this despicable ****? Not surprising I guess, the tories of SZ wouldn't want this story to gather momentum. Several major media outlets aren't running the story either. Strange eh! So he lied about having a second job while a fully paid MP. But in defence of that lie...

    Mark Cooper

    I see that Mark Cooper has been appointed as manager of relegation threatened Conference side AFC Telford (who nearly beat us in the F.A. Cup a few years ago). Can't remember if he was ever a permanent signing but I do remember him playing for us (Southend) as a loan player (I think from...

I hope the PLO will now use their state status to take this matter before the International Criminal Court(ICC)...

But after calling him a c u next tuesday i thought that was the end of it. How wrong was i took...
