  3. Old Shrimper

    Hi all, Thought I would join to hear news and opinions of other supporters. I like some of the historic comments and pictures of times past. I first starting watching the Blues in 1951 when the club played at Grainger Road stadium, travelling there on a saddle on my Dad's crossbar and then...

    Midi blog

    I see the blog section appears just to deal with football, so I've stuck mine here. Don't know whether it will interest anyone but it was good therapy, unwinding after an exhausting weekend. MIDI BLOG Today is one of the few days I can sit in front of the computer with absolutely no guilt...

    Footballers you have met on holiday

    Given there is not much football news..... I saw Miguel Lliera on holiday in Malaga a couple of years ago. Sadly he did not wear the head gear round the pool. On his final day he totally muffed up a simple reverse round a corner and he hit a plant pot in the hotel breaking it. He got out had a...

  7. Who is Joe ?

    My 6 year old daughter came home from school and said that a 'footballer' came in to teach them during P.E. today. She said his name was Joe , he had brown hair and wore a black & white tracksuit ??? Not a lot to go on and she is only 6 , so he could be called Mike and have Blonde hair , but...
  8. Gender stereotyping kids

    Rather than pervert to JT thread, I thought I'd start a new one. Talking to the missus last night we wondered if it's possible to get a child to follow a certain path in later years because of the colour of clothes you buy, or the toys they play with. Was Jamie Oliver bought a toy kitchen as...
  9. Signed bilel mohsni shirt, which he wore at shrewsbury

    I am auctioning off a signed Bilel Mohsni shirt to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund. He wore the shirt in the away draw at Shrewsbury Town in November. Whoever wins the auction will have the shirt presented to them by Bilel as well. A big thank you to the club and to Bilel for this too. I am...

    Question Blair Sturrock and the rat tail

    My first game of the season yesterday so first chance to see the great pretender. Question? What on earth is going on with that Rat Tail? He looks like he should be working on a pikey fairground than wandring around a football pitch. Perhaps the club can use this as a marketing tool and...

    Disenfranchised in england and in france

    It's at times like this, just before a General Election that I regret my inaction during my years in France in keeping my right to vote in UK elections. In my defense I could say that there were other things occupying my mind and with the widening gap of house prices between Britain and France...

    Perma-Tanned Wally

    The sacking of a manager is usually a euphoric release for a struggling club’s fan base, but the only people who seem to be pleased about yesterday’s cruel dismissal of Phil Brown are Arsenal supporters. Still miffed about Brown’s involvement in ‘SpitGate’, they’re delighted to see the back of...

    Films that mapped your youth.

    I have got Quadrophenia on the box at the moment which never siezes to entertain me but it got me thinking. When it came out the mod revival was in full swing and as an stroppy short haired, button down Ben Sherman, Staypressed strids and Hush Puppies wearing trend setter, 'Quad' was my bible...

    Peter Taylor

    Spotted at 8:20 at Fenchurch Street, he got the same train as me from Southend. Wore a suit, everyone ignored him, and he got on the eastbound circle/district line. Looked very tanned. I didn't ask him how they got on against MK Dons.

    Question Relive the best week of your life again

    If you had the opportunity to relive a week from your past what week would it be and why. When asked, I considered many options including the week my son was born, the week I got married, various Southend United experiences from Benji at Bury to Man U and Chelsea. But for some reason I...

    Is this P.O.B.?

    Do we think 80's cartoon legend P.O.B. was played by Southend's No.1 TrueBlue?... The facts: 1. Pob was an ugly goblin ******* baby. 2. Scott is an ugly ******* and would of been Pob's age when it was filmed. 3. Pob always wore a stripy jumper. 4. As you can see in the picture, Scott also...
