    Chris phillips

    Very sorry to hear that Chris Phillips ended up in Basildon Hospital yesterday evening, presumably following a malaise at work. The news was communicated by himself via a tweet and selfie (of his socked legs on a hospital gurney)............. ...............100% reporter!:smile: Hopefully this...

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...
  3. Are our expectations too high!!

    As a supporter off this club for 30+ years, do we expect too much! We are a lower league club with fairly good crowds, we have our moments of glory, for example last year, early 90's and 10 years ago apart from that we are just a normal lower league club. We have all seen some good and bad...
  4. At Training Today.

    They had a very full on intense training match. The hardest working in my opinion was Jack Payne, although his shooting needs working on, and Gary Deegan who was my star of the show. He looks like he's busting a gut to get into the team. Best goal was from McLaughlin. Unfortunately, Kevan Hurst...
  5. Question Pre-match / Half time Personnel on Saturday

    Forgot to ask earlier, but does anyone know who the guy warming up with the team before the game yesterday and kicking about with the subs at half time was...I think he was wearing No.28 shorts, but he certainly wasn't Jason Williams! At first I thought it was Dave Huzzey, then I thought he...

    Top ten Wes Craven

    That I've seen at least 1 ) The Last House on the Left - a great remake of a Strindberg film, this is two halves: the first half, gruesome at it seems, is only a set-up for the revenge in the finale. 2) A Nightmare on Elm Street - a perfect 80s slasher but it was much deeper symbolically and...

    Likes, Fatso Points

    A couple of gripes here. Since 'likes' have come in, which are quick and easy, do fatso points get used any more? I'm sure the mods must have some figures on this. I actually preferred it when it was just fatso points - it meant if you liked or disliked something you had to comment on why -...
  8. Relative form ?

    Anyone seen the match stats for Walsalls win at Rochdale last night ? Not totally disimilar from ours against Walsall... and Rochdale had won their previous two games ! Yes the nature of our performance wasnt great but we probably ran into a decent team and with an improved team selection im...

    Searching Pupils at school - any teachers know the law

    My son (Year 7) came home upset today. Turns out his whole form class were searched today without the consent of the pupils. I wasn't sure of the laws on searching pupils in senior school so I looked it up. Apparently, a pupil can be searched without consent by a person nominated by the head...

    Best wishes to Michael Timlin

    Who, according to our resident friendly local press reporter, got married today. Congrats to Mr and Mrs Timlin, hope the skull cap wasn't needed today, lol! :smile:
  12. Terry Mason

    Anyone have any idea what going on, just got the news that Paul Smith left and he would take some of the training sessions when Terry Mason wasn't here, as he is only part time, will he go full time now.

    Ben Smith

    Read the few pages he wrote on his time here. Firstly, he got injured early - and had to face the wrath of John Gowens, who had a go at him for turning up an hour late one session, but after a while he and Gowens got on well. Secondly, he liked to drink. He said one morning, he had to call...

    Question Yellow Final Scarves...

    As I sat in the upper tier, 233 I wasn't able to get one of the Yellow SUFC scarves, does anyone know if there are more available or maybe you even had a spare one? Happy to pay for it Thanks

    For those collecting tickets at Wembley. May be IMPORTANT.

    Hope you all read in the confirmation email that the cardholder who paid for the tickets is expected to be there with the card when the tickets are collected. I would honestly hope it is not an issue if someone else paid who wasn't coming or if you didn't bring card with you but you never know...

    What a result for the blue army. Wasn't expecting this. This is for the good of England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. Socialism cannot and will not be tolerated under our watch. People deserve opportunity, choice about key decisions, and strong leadership. Labour couldn't deliver and...
  17. Im Here to not rub salt in the wounds

    but to say i now believe you have the best possible draw for Wembley and a promotion of your own You Guys are superb and don't deserve the heartbreak of today. Go home , Regroup and come back strong next week and so on I am backing you all the way I have said this before that Southend...

    Bolger, what a player!

    Think back early this season, Luton away ironically. Most would say that guy wasn't worth a penny and shouldn't play for us again and now look at him! The change in his game is nothing short of fantastic, admittedly super Adam Barrett has helped his progress and confidence but hats must go off...

    That Celtic penalty...

    ...that wasn't given - how obvious could it be? The one they conceded was also "a fair cop"!
  20. Well Done Phil Brown

    There's been plenty of anti Phil Brown threads started after a single bad game (some rightly so, others certainly not) so think this one deserves its place. Phil has got the team winning regularly and can anyone say tonight wasn't a good to watch? The team are really playing well and he most...
