    My friendly invasion - Its was all big Bill Garners fault!

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday. The reason for me being prostrate on this beautiful Sunday was I was watching a one day match between Essex and it could have been Warwickshire or...
  2. Pre-Match Thread Southend United V MK Dons

    For MK this is almost a last chance make or break game SO the game ought to have some bite and maybe a few more Dons fans visiting than usual from them. After the poor pooh showing at Ox then CP will be wanting to show home fans that it is "work in progress" for him in prep for next season and...

  5. Slightly concerned

    I do not wish to introduce any negativity to CP's reign but something is concerning me. It seems Chris does not fancy Elvis or Kyp. Wabo out on loan and what happened to Ba ? I thought when Chris arrived the youth would be encouraged and given chances. Seems only Dru is considered worthy. What...
  6. Memory Lane John "Joe" Kurila

    I had a phone call earlier today from Billy Best who informed me that our former defender Big John Kurila had passed away aged 76. Fans of a certain age will remember John who was a tough no nonsense Scottish defender, who joined us in the summer of 1968 and played in every match of that...

    Cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin

    Back in August after watching the Netflix documentary "banking on bitcoin", I made a small investment (£100) in bitcoin. It had already rocketed in value so I was reluctant to invest a significant amount, I wish I had now as my £100 is now worth £210 and I have doubled my money. There are many...
  15. Simon Cox

    I rate him I really do. He's as classy a player as you're gonna get at this level. However, Simon, please stop being so bloody unselfish!! You're a striker struggling for goals.... just have a dig!! I lost count of the number of times he looks to pass rather than shoot. He's been like that all...

  17. Northern Soul

    Anyone like Northern Soul on here? I bet no one went to Wigan and Manchester back in the day when it was at it's prime. I didn't go by the way, but watched the film Northern Soul this week and really enjoyed it. I wish I had gone. I like this video as well...

    Promotion & Relegation Teams for 2017/18 Season

    Simple enough - name the teams that you think will get promoted automatically (and play-offs if you wish) and the teams that you think will be relegated. Reasons why you have made your selection would be nice. :smile: Just putting Southend as Champions isn't really helping the discussion...

    First Gigs

    Was looking at the Gigs thread and saw someone say they wish they could have gone to the Damned gig and got me thinking about the first gigs I went to. Was only just turned 16 for the first one, seems young to have travelled all the way to London with just a mate these days! First three: 1...
