Roots Hall - Worst Ground In The League?
at 10:51 28 Oct 2019

It was my first trip to Southend on Saturday, I had heard the ground was looking in need of refurbishment - but I personally have not been to a worse ground (at professional level).

The half height concrete steps in each row were lethal, the toilet was nothing more than a brick channel in the floor and the home areas looked just as shabby.
The press box looked very cosy!

Can anyone better my vote for Roots Hall?

Strangely - they had electronic turnstiles!
Extension Costs
at 17:27 7 Oct 2019

Has anyone had any recent experience of extending their property?

Looking to do a partial demolition of our existing kitchen back to the original line of the house, before projecting it out circa 10 x 3m, so 30m2.

Does anyone have any rough m2 rates for an average kitchen extension?

Anyone off to Finals Day on Saturday?
at 08:53 19 Sep 2019

Probably my favourite sporting day of the year, the cricket almost becomes a sideshow in the Hollies Stand where many a pint is consumed!

Hope to see a few ITFC representatives following the Eagles!
Best Suffolk Area/Village to live in
at 13:08 12 Sep 2019

In your opinion, what is the best area of Suffolk to live in?

Can be based upon transport links, crime rate, local services etc etc. Generally interested in where people think is their favourite place to live?

Point to add - I live outside of Suffolk so have never had the pleasure!

Converting a garage advice
at 15:55 9 Sep 2019

Anyone have any hints and tips for converting a detached garage?
Looking to turn into an office to work from home. Currently its a traditional single skin of brickwork, single car garage.
I realise I will need to insulate it and bring electrics up to Part P etc. I will also need a Building Control application and structural engineer to check the new French doors opening I hope to put in.
Will I need planning permission or is it permitted development?

Any tips much appreciated,
Isn't the Rochdale game perfectly placed now?
at 09:01 3 Sep 2019

Firstly I appreciate that people purchased tickets etc, I was one of them!

But with Bury now being suspended, we do not have a Saturday league game either side of the Rochdale fixture. Whilst Rochdale have Bristol Rovers 4 days before.

Starting to see why Lambert did suspend it!

Anyone ever had any success in the stock market?
at 12:57 30 Aug 2019

I occasionally buy shares to supplement savings accounts etc but only go for defensive options - never taking any big risks.

Has anyone ever had a big risk actually pay off?

Genuinely interested if it is 'real world' possible to take those small price stocks and ride the wave to big bucks!
Just picked up Ashes tickets for Friday
at 11:57 19 Aug 2019

Last minute decision to go, anyone been to Headingley before? Is it a painful drive through Leeds City Centre to get there?

Any tips appreciated!
Josh Morris released by Scunthorpe
at 11:45 17 May 2019

Were we not linked with him a while ago?

Always scored goals from midfield but not sure if he is the winger we are looking for!
London Commute
at 13:35 30 Apr 2019

Starting a new role in London, means having to commute from Witham each day (40 Mins on train) then a 15 minute tube from Liverpool Street.

Any London commuters on here have any handy hints or tips for surviving what I imagine to be mayhem at rush hour?

After 20 years I am quite used to the air-con and seclusion my car based commute currently offers!

Lambert cannot do much more
at 23:01 23 Nov 2018

Yes we haven't won a game but he has certainly done far better with this squad of players than anticipated. I can see a clear playing style and passion to perform.

If we go down, Evans needs to throw everything into persuading him to stay and build a team to fly back up.
Just heard another chant for Lambert
at 13:56 27 Oct 2018

Lambert your the one
We used to call you scum
Ipswich staying up again

Catchy but is it too common?
Does Lambert have a relegation on his CV?
at 09:05 26 Oct 2018

Left Norwich, relegated 2 seasons (?) later under Adams
Left Villa, relegated a season later
Left Blackburn, relegated 2 seasons later
Left Wolves, promoted season later (albeit with a completely different team)

So it looks positive in that even if he has only set the world alight with Norwich, he certainly has kept basket case clubs in their leagues until leaving.
Specific Player Chants
at 12:35 12 Aug 2018

After a mass turnover of players in the summer, I thought it would be interesting to see how many players remain that have their own chant. Any help filling in what I have missed would be appreciated

Bart - Big Pole in The Goal
Knudsen - Scored against the scum
Chambers - One Fckin Chambers
Skuse - ...Skuse!
Sears - Oh Freddie Freddie!
Gerken - Deano....Deano
Dozzell - We've got dozzell
Nydam - He's one of our own...

Unless I have missed out a fair few then to me it dosent seem we actually have that many chants for our new starting XI.

Any new chants come out of yesterday?

Is here's to you Ellis Harrison official a chant now?
My half time thoughts from Braintree
at 15:59 14 Jul 2018

Braintree should be two or three up and this is more due to sloppy play from our defence, especially from set pieces rather than sustained periods of pressure.

Spence has been very poor and highlights the need for anew CB.

On a positive note Downes has been my stand out of the first half although that isn't saying much.

Roberts hasn't done anything special but has been isolated up front.

Team have clearly been told to play the ball into the channels for Ward and Sears to chase. Could mean another season on the wing for Sears.

Only a friendly and the intensity isn't massive however Spence needs to turn up
Ross potentially staying?
at 18:12 11 May 2018

Chris Sutton has just said a big announcement from Ross at 7.15pm on BT Sport 1. As Sutton was being so smug and calling us the 2nd best team in East Anglia - I imagine the announcement is Ross saying thanks but no thanks.

Hope I am wrong and not trying to start the rumour mill!
Why did Millwall constant berate Waghorn?
at 18:58 2 Apr 2018

I realise he is an ex-loanee of theirs but any reason for the bad blood?

Also loved his dancing along to their chants whilst Skuse had treatment.
How Deep Does This Hole Go?
at 22:18 17 Jan 2017

McCarthy works on the principle of winning the hearts and minds of his players to enable them to play above their natural ability. See our play off season. It is clear now that the players have lost all fight in them thus Mick's tactical abilities are being found out.
I was a Big Mick fan but tonight we were embarrassing and I do not use that word lightly. Why do I pay good money to watch players who do not even try.....

The comparison someone has made earlier to this being similar to the Sheffield Wednesday display under Hutchings is correct in terms of pride and passion.

Worrying times ahead of this continues.
