  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...

    Terror threats the new normal

    http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jan/01/terror-threats-will-be-the-new-normal-for-europe-experts-say Sadly I fear this is true. However,I also fear, the admirably named Prof Rik Coolsaet, a terrorism expert at Ghent University in Belgium is right when he says:- “One day the hype...

    our stewards

    Our stewards are quite possibly the worst I have witnessed in the 50 away league grounds I have visited. Only we could escort Millwall fans out the ground for death threats and allow them back in! - they threw coins at the W block - they ripped the advertising off of the front of the north...
  5. Mooney - enough of a threat?

    Anyone else unimpressed with him - he's a fair run in the side he's hardly posing the threats we need up top.

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Sheffield United 2-2 Southend United

    Would have bitten your hand off for that result before the game, just a shame after going 2-0 up and throwing it away with some awful set piece defending. Protected the lead late on but rightly so as they were all over us. Bentley at fault for the first, though could easily say that it should...

    WEMBLEY - AN UGLY SITUATION yes yet another short story

    Love them or hate them it's another one of my yarns from years gone by. All the facts are true, many did travel to Wembley for the first Cup -Final. Only the names have been changed etc, WEMBLEY – AN UGLY SITATION There was no television in 1923, and therefore there was not an abundance of...
  9. Russia

    So Russia sends two military aircraft (Bombers) near to Cornwell. Mr Putin had also flown two other bombers down the English Channel two weeks ago. It's letting us know that their bombers can easily reach the whole of Great Britain. There has also been Russian warships in our waters. Now I'm...

    How safe do you feel in London?

    In light of the latest events in Paris it made me think back to the 70s when I was working in the West End and the IRA boyos were letting rip. They were pretty hairy times and you never knew when the next big bang would go off. How safe do you people that still work in London feel after today...

    OPPOSITION WATCH - MORECAMBE Ahead of the all-shrimp encounter on Saturday, here's a brief look at the current situation for this weekend's opposition: Jack Redshaw returned from injury earlier than expected against Burton at the weekend, making a late substitute appearance. The Shrimps named...
  12. Prospects trying to get a higher price??

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/10403117.Get_round_the_negotiating_table___council_leader_urges_Roots_hall_landowners/ Is this an attempt to get a better price for the land or just threats???

    Luke Prosser, did he deserve to be dropped?

    Just a question to see what others think, I know the midfield is not protecting the side at the moment, but I wonder whether Prosser being out of the side has also made us look weaker at the back. Don't get me wrong, if we was starting a season fresh and I was picking my best team on paper...

    Broncos Buck Losing Trend With Record Breaking Comeback

    An unbelievable 80 minutes at the Stoop this afternoon. Broncos ahead after 5 minutes then fall to bits. Opponents Salford City Reds hammer in six tries before half time, albeit with only two converted, one of them comically way wide from in front of the posts. Half time, Broncos 6, City Reds...

    My view on the season as a whole and those 83 points gained

    There's lot of talk on here that we got 83 points which should/would have been enough for promotion in other years. A points tally in itself is meaningless, if you have a lot of strong teams consistently winning and picking up points you will need more than average to gain automatic promotion...

  19. Time for action NOW ?

    With nothing left to play for and it being very unlikely we could go down, is now the time for EVERY supporter to stand up to Mr Martin and show their disgust at how he has insulted players, staff and fans with his latest comments ? I would suggest a total boycott for one home game. I will not...
