  1. Man U web site comments

    This may have already been posted but i thouht i would post it anyway Wes Brown is urging his United team-mates to move on from Tuesday's shock Carling Cup exit against struggling Championship side Southend United. The Reds' defender skippered the side that was knocked out the...

    Essex

    Good luck to Ronnie Irani and the boys this week against Leicestershire in their attempt to round off a good season. Disappointing that we lost v Durham yesterday on TV (hard to follow it what with the football being on as well) but thanks to Sussex's capitulation v Notts we managed to...

    Bit of trivia

    Of the current twenty Premiership managers, five were once employed by the same club at the same time. Name all five and the club to win Drewe Broughton's shooting boots that I sneakily stole from him after he joined.

    My dilema

    SZ'rs I call upon you to help me make a decision. This time last week I was the only one in the office when the phone goes. "Can I speak to the director of the business" came the voice. Must get 20+ calls a day with the same tone-very lazy cant even be bothered to reasearch our director name...

  6. Jay Smith...

    Played 90 mins for Oxford (beat Posh 1-0) and played very well by all accounts... Snippet 'Smith, industrious throughout, blasted in a shot from twenty yards on the hour which the flying Tyler tipped away...' He had a few shots and 'deft' touches. Well done Smithy! Keep...

  10. dudders and nicky

    I know there are going to be like twenty different topics about how well we played, so i ain't going to go on about that. But two players that stood out to me today, and played superb were nicky nicolau and lawrie Dufield, nicky deserved that chance, and he defiantly showed he wanted it. I...
  11. I think I'm becoming a Yeovil fan

    I really do love Ciderspace. Here' a copy of one of their pages(totally without permission of course) that I thought was pretty good. Sorry if people have already seen this or similar. A Bluffers Guide to Communication at Huish Park You've read the Ciderspace Bluffers Guide to Huish...
  12. What the papers say

    Telegraph "Southend were the sharper outfit for much of the game but despite an impressive show from Freddy Eastwood, signed from Grays Athletic, they had to swallow their second successive defeat in the LDV final." Times "Despite a record 17 matches unbeaten, Southend were a tad static and...
  13. Sky Sports News

    Just caught the tail end of a Southend feature on Sky Sports News. There was an interview with Spinner, plus a few vox pops down Southend High Street and, unfortunately, one of Blackpool's goals from last year's final SSN tend to repeat things throughout the day, so if you can catch...
  14. Carl Griffiths

    Former O's man and trialist at Roots Hall a couple of summers ago Carl Griffiths opened the scoring in Heybridge Swifts 2-1 win over Dover Athletic. Playing alongside Griffiths was twenty-a-day Scott Forbes, who was subbed late in the game for former Canvey striker Bertie Brayley. WS

    I've just got back from the game

    Just gonna put some reflections on the game/day out: -> I couldn't persuade anyone to go so I knew it could get a bit hairy. Didn't help that every train I went on stopped sporadically and became late, not to mention them cancelling my train from New Street. -> The directions to the ground I...
  17. Tackling my Demons by Stan Collymore

    “There are two occasions in my career that made everything I have gone through worth it”. As I stood there, my mind started to turn. Was he talking about Kirsty Gallagher, I would. Or maybe it was one of the other beauties he had bedded. “The other game I cherish having being part of was...
  18. Exiled Shrimper

    Gravesend & Northfleet vs. York City

    During today's match between the Fleet and the Minstermen no fewer than four ex-Shrimpers were involved in the matchday squads: Ben Surey - the most recent having been on trial in pre-season had a comfortable game in the centre of the park for the hosts Darren Dunning - a non-playing...
  19. Your first tears of Joy as a Shrimper

    Just an interesting thought as I sit here bored at work. I have supported Southend since the early eighties going regulary since then. I have only had tears of joy well up in my eyes twice in over twenty years. Both this season. Easy to guess I suppose. First time against Col Ewe at Roots...
