  1. Different views..............

    A couple of points. For quite a few weeks on here I've read about our awful defending. Admittedly most of this criticism was focused on set piece defending , but nevertheless , the implication was that we were shocking at the back. Looking at the table today , although we are bottom half , we...

    Latest Rumours Unfounded

    I'd just like to confirm that YB and ORM are two completely different people as witnessed by around 100 people at an SZFC Quiz Night. I don't condone his childish picture thread antics. You'd never get me doing that. :happy: YB is the one that does pointless multi quote replies. I, on the other...

    Latest Rumours Tilson walks (so far unfounded)

    Just been sent a text telling me the rumour is that Tilson has today walked away from Southend. Anyone heard anything similar?
  4. 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...

    Question Should we blame the 'Consortium' ?

    I am not exonerating RM but I have heard it said that the 'Consortium' stepped in to prevent RM from putting the Club into Administration in November, (in a similar style to Ken Bates), to deliberately make RM's life difficult - supposedly due to dissatisfaction from past dealings with RM...

    Barcelona 2-1 Estudiantes de La Plata AET

    Not a vintage performance against a spirited Estudiantes side, but Barca confirm their status as the best in the world right now, and what could be more fitting than for the best player to grab the winner? That's six titles in 2009 for Barca: La Liga Copa del Rey Supercopa Champions League...

    The FA Get It Right!

    Justice, when it finally arrived, was measured without being merciless. With a GBP20,000 fine and a four match touchline ban, two of which are suspended, The Football Association have resisted the temptation to make an example of Sir Alex Ferguson without letting him off the hook entirely. On...

    Breaking News Members of the Consortium

    So who are the consortium? Completely unfounded, but I'm going to guess that the owner of Adventure Island is one of them, Philip Miller I'd also hazard a guess that someone (pl?) from Insure and Go are also part of it. Can anyone else think who might be involved?

    National cashpoint failure

    I'm not one to spread unfounded alarmist rumours but a colleague has just informed me (after phoning his bank) that there is a national cashpoint failure affecting all banks. If anyone could confirm this before I go and loot the Canary Wharf B and O shop I would be appreciate it.

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 3

    "There will be no stadium at Fossetts Farm and the future of the football club remains at Roots Hall." A year after being ousted from position of chairman at Southend United, John Main returned to warn fans that a new stadium was merely a pipe-dream. His words, posted on a Southend United...
  11. Pete Doherty "manufactured" by the KLF!

    Sadly, just an unfounded rumour that's been circulating on t'internet for the past week. How great would it be if it were true though?

    The Podcast Issue

    Let me put something straight. I was NOT against the podcast; jokey comments might have been interpreted as such but I was not against it. My train of thought is as follows: Firstly, the concept of the podcast was indeed innovative, if not the first in the country or the world. But by limiting...
