    Once upon a time...

    we all used to support Southend. We all had different ideas of who should play and different opinions on players ability but at the end of the day we could all meet up in a pub, on a train or coach or at a match and give our support for the lads in blue. We may not agree with each other, but...

    Argentina Manager: Diego Maradona Captain: Javier Mascherano FIFA Ranking: 7 Group B Background: One of the most historically rich teams in football, the Albacete have won the World Cup twice and alongside France are the only side which have won the three most important tournaments in...

    The Shackleford Alliance

    With no party looking capable of securing an overall majority, a hung parliament and a second election look likely. With that in mind, I believe a new political movement is required to shake off the current inertia and fill the electorate with a heady mixture of enthusiasm and terror. I...

    Terrorist Warning Level

    The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross", The English have not bee "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when...
  5. Some Possible Good News Soon?

    The last few months have been a very depressing time to be a Blues fan with all the financial uncertainty hanging over the club with the threats of possible liquidation/administration. Things are clearly still far from perfect. However, it's possible that things may be about to change. I hear...

    United for Southend

    Does anyone else remember the United for Southend campaign that was quite prominent in the early 90s? For reference, Jobson had started talks with Basildon Council in January 1992 over a new 25,000 all-seater stadium in the New Town; I seem to recall that he had even submitted an outline...
  7. United Cleared, Can Continue European Pillage

    Well, anybody could have seen that one coming. No sooner than Le Havre made idol threats to sue Manchester United for all they're worth, A Fifa judge has cleared them of any wrongdoing and allowed them to sign French starlet Paul Pogba immediately. United are usually as immaculate off the pitch...
  8. Southend for the Totalitarian League!

    Don't know how many on hear listen to Danny Baker's show on 5 Live on a Tuesday night. One of the long-running themes of his phone in show is the concept of a Totalitarian League. Danny thinks there are too many football teams and wants to trim the entire British and Scottish leagues down to...

    No More 4-4-2!

    Fabio Capello has much to ponder. Though certain sections of the UK press appear to have an unhealthy obsession with an ageing bit-part midfielder and his quest for caps, the real question mark hangs over the structure of the England team. Capello has said that he will be taking this evening's...

    Locking Posts

    I will give this 5 minutes before it's either locked or deleted. Either way, I still find it funny that Irate Ian or threads about Irate Ian are still able to cause so much panic in the ranks. Why do I only give this thread 5 minutes? Well there's 2 threads already locked despite the fact they...

    It Could Be Worse, You Could Be Steve

    This is something a little different, it's for a magazine given to professional footballers. I'd be interested to know what you think. Football, as you'll probably know better than me, is a game of stark contrasts, subject to swift changes that are rarely polite enough to warn of their...

    Harry On Up The Table

    What a turnaround! Tottenham Hotspur, who accumulated just two points in over two months with Juande Ramos, have now racked up seven in the last seven days and you can put them all down to the Harry Redknapp factor. The former Portsmouth boss has put a spring in Spurs' step and after two...

    Rant and Dec!!

    RANT AND DEC!!!! It is believed that Tv's beloved geordie duo have found themselves involved in another scandal. Just minutes after Dec's seedy past was revealed and the news that the two were arrested in connection with the mysterious fire on the pier of Weston super mare the cheeky boys have...

    Bluetonic's Ban

    Looking at a thread and Bluetonic has banned under his name again. What for now? If he has killed someones mother, made threats, posted something libel or PMed someone and left threats of violence ten fair enough. He hasn't so why has he banned again. It is starting to look like a witch hunt here.
  15. Born in the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's???

    CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's ! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads of bacon and...

    Dr Ramos' Football Surgery

    For Tottenham Hotspur, the last four months have been like one of those celebrity makeover programmes on the television. Tottenham trudged into Dr Ramos’ Football Surgery back in October looking overweight, haggard and drawn. Now, after weeks of detailed appraisal and then a flurry of cutting...

    As I mentioned on a thread yesterday me and a few mates have started in a 6aside league in Laindon, anyway yesterday we had a match against a physical team who were probably all in their 30s or late 20s. In trying to get the ball before the keeper one of our players clipped the goalies leg. The...
  18. Southend Unveil New Centre Back

    On a serious note, Watching the goals a defender with height would've stopped 2 of the 3 goals yesterday. If there's a serious problem, Why not bring 6'3 Harrold back to defend? I do think that Francis coming back could ease some of these fears, However I just don't see Tilson dropping Barret...

    who will make the Biggest impact

    After the haze of relegation has been lifted who do you believe will be the man to make the biggest impact for the blues on the pitch? I reckon it will be JCR, he has improved immensely since the start of last season, to the last game at Southampton. He will run the defences ragged and be one...
