    Indonesian Drug Executions

    I may be slightly controversial here but I'm in the let's get it over and done with camp. Before the knee jerks consider these points.

    Memory Lane Greatest ever Southend squad

    What squad in our history do you think was the best, the most talented. Although they never won anything I'm going for the squad of 93/94 with Barry fry at the helm... he assembled a squad that was destined for the premier league. Probably full of the most talented players to wear the Southend...

    Labour The Lets Expose The Labour Party Wrong'uns Thread

    As some of those who like to post in this forum seem to really enjoy taking swings at UKIP, I thought it was about time the favour was returned in spades just to show that there are plenty of wrong'uns who nail their colours to The Labour Party mast. Here's a couple of links to be getting on...

    Hello all, How not to create the best impression - well here goes :facepalm:... I'm a West Ham United die hard, (fourth generation), season ticket holder for twenty years, plus countless away games. :omg: Currently going through a typically stressful and unnecessarily, long drawn out house...

    Strange times

    They say that the one thing financial markets don't like is uncertainty.....................we can only pray that this truism doesn't apply to football clubs. It looked so different at the start of the Summer, even allowing for the disappointment of missing out in the play-offs. The backbone...

    My view on the season as a whole and those 83 points gained

    There's lot of talk on here that we got 83 points which should/would have been enough for promotion in other years. A points tally in itself is meaningless, if you have a lot of strong teams consistently winning and picking up points you will need more than average to gain automatic promotion...

    Recurring topics on SZ

    1) Ron's evil; it's all part of the masterplan to drive the club into the ground and everyone's involved, including: 2) Sturrock: he's tactically naive by not picking the right players like: 3) Paterson but then he does pick 4) his son - is it nepotism? or is Yorkie right? 5) the ground- will it...

    Pre-Match Thread Barnet v Southend

    So, we make the fairly short trip to Underhill this weekend. Which is traditionally a happy hunting ground for the Shrimpers. We should have a good travelling army well in excess of 1,000. So the atmosphere will be good. We have already gone there and put 4 past them this season in the JPT...

    ......has been released by Stevenage! The one time unstoppable goalscorer and canvey lover has been linked with SUFC a few times in the past but I think back in the days when Canvey were a Conference side made some disparaging remarks about us. if I remember correctly, after we knocked them...

    Is it acceptable.....

    In order to try and get a bit more space on the train I have taken to wearing an enamelled SAS 'Who dares wins" regimental insignia on the lapel of my coat. My theory is that people will think I am either ex-SAS or an unstable nutcase and afford me all the space I need. Is this acceptable or...

    Update to iPhone OS 4.0.1

    I've just put the OS update on my 3GS iPhone. Anything I need to be wary about? I always tend to wait a few weeks after Apple release these updates having been burned by an unstable iTunes one a few years back. I also cannot stand the new default wallpaper, anybody know of a good (free) app...

    England Flatter To Deceive

    NOTHING FOR ENGLAND TO SHOUT ABOUT Forget about the result, this was not a good night for England. Fabio Capello has much to ponder before he makes his final squad selection for the World Cup. A 3-1 victory over a side of Mexico’s quality is a fine result on paper, but the performance that went...
