  1. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...

    Aquarium & fish giveaway

    Need a bit of help....I've got a few tropical fish that I need to shift (including the tank & equipment) but obviously I want to give them to a good home rather than flush them down the loo. Can anyone recommend a website or a service, as a few I've tried have been bollox? Alternatively if...

    Life In The A-League

    Before I headed off to Oz I said I'd write a regular blog about what it's like supporting a team on the other side of the world. Here is my first effort by way of an introduction to the Queensland Roar - Queensland Roar vs Adelaide United – 24th August 2008 Come On! Imagine this scenario...

    Southend United players and their pets

    Recent(ish) signing Charlie Mulgrew is a big fan of tropical fish, which made me wonder what pets our current players have. We all know Freddy had some horses to pull his caravan, goalkeeping legend Paul Sansome had a hamster called Hammy but what of our current crop? I know of the following...

    UK chooses 'most ludicrous laws' - from BBC News

    A little-known law which prohibits people dying while in the Houses of Parliament has been voted the UK's most ludicrous piece of legislation. Another law which states it is treason to use a postage stamp upside down was placed in second place by those polled by UKTV Gold. The most absurd...

    My Man Utd vs Southend Mug is no more...

    I was cleaning my tropical fish tank out this afternoon, and for some reason my Man Utd vs Southend Utd I got off ebay after the historical win fell from the shelf. Instead of falling into the depths of the tank, or smashing on the side of the tank I managed to knock it with my left hand. My...

    The fbm view and ratings - Birmingham

    BATTLING BLUES PUT BRUM OUT TO SEED Southend pulled off one of the results of the season by deservedly claiming all three points on the sponge that is now the St Andrews pitch. On an all too rare fbm awayday, the result rounded off a decent visit to England's second city. Travelling up in the...

    Mexican wave

    I think a Mexican wave would look superb tomorrow with the whole of the ground full and with people in tropical dress. I'm sure if a few people started it others would follow. Anyone got the balls to start it?

    Coldest Ever Game

    Not sure if this one's been done before. Looking at the forecast tomorrow it won't exactly be tropical. My vote on this thread would be at home v Hereford in Jan '76. The previous home game v Millwall we got > 7,500, for this one it was so freezing we got less than half that. We...

  15. ******* my thumb...

    After throwing a complete hissy-fit at the full-time whistle, crawling into a ball, dribbling and screaming "WHY!? WHY!?" I realised it was probably a touch childish and wish to apologise to my wife, cats and tropical fish (and my neighbours). Anyway, lets talk about old...
