    The cost of living in the south east

    Is it me or does anyone else struggle with the cost of living in the south east. I work for the NHS and so does the wife. We effectively haven't had a pay rise for 7 years. We earn the same in our roles as someone in say Carlisle. The main difference being that you can buy a house there for...

    Pre-Match Thread Gillingham v Southend

    The game is technically our closest this season barring a nightmare on the QE2 bridge. As we all know it is a hell hole of the highest order with a death trap of an away stand. £20 seems very steep to me for a ticket. It would be nice to get back on track with a win a cox goal and a 15 minute...

    Can any woman please explain?

    Woman at work 42, in a reasonably strong position career wise and is strong at work, divorced. 'Boyfriend' of 14 years, also divorced. I say bf under advice. Publicly he treats her like dog poo to the extent that people have told him publicly. Privately he has hit her in the past, she has been...

    Kevan Hurst

    Interesting that he seems to have dropped through the trap door a' la Clifford, is he injured?

    Question what is it ?

    Has anyone noticed during the friendly matches what the contraption is just to the left of our dugout? It looks almost like an i-pad strapped onto a yellow stand ... i've never noticed this before ( but i am a west stand seaso with bad eyesight ) Does anyone know if this is one of Phil Browns...

    .. and for you to park in disabled spaces. George Osborne is an utter XXXX! This man really is one of the nastiest low lives you could ever imagine. He makes Mandelson seem human. **** at his job, entirely lacking in morals, awful judgement and a complete wxxxxr! He goes on about breaking...

    Aldershot very low iron girder death trap, health and safety issue!

    So they don't want to issue refunds. Then perhaps they may like a visit from health and safety about the disgusting low iron beams that i nearly concussed myself on at the back of the tiered seating stand. No warning notices just two very low girders that in the dim light you could not possibly...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend "United" v Bradford City

    What with all that has gone on this week, you would be forgiven for forgetting there is a game tomorrow night!... So, how on earth is this going to go? Bradford come here sitting one place and 3 points above the trap door. They have not won in 8 league games and are without a win all season on...

    I just had to make a judgement call in the toilet

    Went for my afternoon dump and didnt check for bog roll first (who does?) Anyway after releasing the rather loose deposit i reached for the bog roll - nothing!! Anyway, no panic, must be some in trap 2 next door - no, empty as well. Couldnt be arsed (arsed get it?, no?) to leave without...

    Question Was this a carefully laid man-trap?

    Had a bit of a strange moment over the Christmas period, that I'm hoping you folks can help me with. The wife had decided that she wanted to watch Sex and the City 2 which I'm sure I don't need to tell you was not really my bag (being neither female or gay). Rather than disappear off to another...

    PL Weekly Points Round 14

    A much better performance this week folks and the reason many of you dropped points where you did was because you backed The Ooze and the Col Ewe scummers .. ever heard of Karma? Cyril Sneer and Roxy didn't fall into such a trap and emerged with 6 bonus points each, well played to you both Full...

    Oh dear, oh dear.... On that showing, relegation is a real possibility. Totally clueless, ineffective and downright sh*t. The problems, well, where to start? Firstly - Long ball football; Reality hit home today. Hard. Under Tilly we constantly tried to get the ball down and play football...

  15. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...
  16. We Never Wanted the World Cup, Anyway...

    Well, you could see that coming, couldn’t you? Just as soon as the English World Cup bid gets off the ground, the English tabloids have set about dismantling it from afar. The news that Lord Triesman, chairman of the 2018 bid, has claimed that Spain and Russia are colluding to bribe...

    Just imagine, life is good, you study well, get a good job, meet a girl, marry, get a mortgage for a nice house and then along come the kids.

    Monopoly

    The clue is in the name. They called it Mono-poly. Mono. One. Not Bi-opoly, not Tri-opoly, and certainly not Commi-opoly where you all work together and the renting revenue gets ******* on the space programme. It’s a game and it’s there to be won, so what’s the point in trying to play nice? Did...
