  1. Players on Loan.

    Well done CP for getting in the 3 on loan. A big lad up front and someone stronger in mid-field would have been on anyone's shopping list but getting someone who can slot in with at least L1 experience is the difficult bit in January. Lets hope Sam Mantom arrives soon but I guess he wouldn't be...

    Catchment and support

    Sorry if this has been posted before but i chanced across a map of catchment areas by club, which shows some interesting stats, for example we have (according to this report) a larger catchment than Manure, Wham and Chelsea. 600k potential plus fans on our doorstep... where were they last...

    Question for the local types here; Anyone used 'Backworks' Chiropractors (who advertise as SUFCs provider) in the Southend or can you recommend another locally in the Leigh / Southend area? Thanks
  5. Time to discard the coloured cards

    For a while now I have thought that a yellow and a red card were insufficient to determine the severity of numerous types of fouls in games; after Saturday at Gillingham I feel even stronger that something needs to be done. Why can we not have a RANGE of punishments shown by a value rather than...
  6. Who actually signs the players ?

    Ron or Phil or another?? In fairness to Phil he must have better contacts surely?? We know Ron went over previous managers and signed "veterans/injured/one last pay day types/....has he been involved with the current crop who fit the criteria? Anton and Nile have hardly kicked a ball,it seems...
  7. China are buying up English clubs

    Some of you may have read about the £800m bid for Liverpool from the Chinese. I know we are now used to our big clubs being owned and run by various James Bond baddie types, but what makes this one different is that it is state sponsored with government money. After reading an article in...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Any Statisticians Out There?

    I have a question for any statisticians. I am looking at a presentation given to us at work on a particular subject. (I can't go into details because it's confidential.) Anyway the presentation shows 4 user types for a product, but all four are above average users. I asked the people who...

  15. OldBlueLady


    Please explain to me what the current penchant for facial hair amongst you male types is all about? I don't know any women who actually like them, so presumably they're being "cultivated" purely for the owner's pleasure! To me, and to female work colleagues and amongst friends, where we've...
  16. Bikers heading to Southend

    The 17th annual Southend biker Shakedown will depart from The Ace Cafe Stonebridge, in north-west London, at 10.30am. The fundraiser will see hundreds of bikers arrive at Southend seafront for a family-focused day out. Now the trouble with this is that it raises thousands for mainly childrens...

    Southend United Political XI's

    With the General Election just three montsh away I was thinking which former/current Southend players would line-up in a Southend United Labour Xi and a Southend United Tory XI. An obvious looking Tory-boy, to me, would be Danny O'Shea (archetypal 80's yuppie Thatcher's child looks). Adam...

    Product Design/Development Companies

    Has anyone ever used one of these companies. I have contacted one today but have only told them the bare bones of what I've got planned so as not to give the game away and hopefully stir up their interest a little. What am I to expect from these types of companies?
