    How many points

    So we are in line for a play off spot. How many points do we need with 7 games to go? We are on 63 points and I would say that possibly 73 points will see us get a top 6 spot. 10 points from 7 is more than achievable

    Is an 8k average achievable ?

    The club are and have been looking to average 8k at home next season. Is this achievable. It's been probably 10 or so years since this happened. We do have a good few clubs this season that will bring a decent away support. Bradford Charlton Sheff Utd Coventry Millwall Oxford Brizzle...
  3. What achievable improvements would you like to see?

    As you may recall, I attended a Supporters Groups Forum on behalf of the Zone a little while back, instigated by the Shrimpers Trust. At that meeting we discussed getting together a 'shopping/wish list' of things that the supporters in general feel could improve their experience of supporting...

    What can we do to help OUR club?

    First of all, may I remind us of our name: "The Southend United Football Club". Within those five words is a huge amount of meaning, however, the two key words are "UNITED" and "CLUB". I was rewatching "The Team We Call United" the other day and it reminded me of what it is to be a Southend...

    Breaking News The Blue Voice v Macclesfield...

    Yes that's right "THE BLUE VOICE".....that is every single one of you at Roots Hall this Saturday. We are the 12th man. We can make things happen. We can influence things. We can provide that extra spark of adrenalin for our boys on that pitch. We can help them to achieve the unachievable...

    Question Cheltenham- attendance

    With the home coming of Freddy how many do you think can expect to get through the gate? 7k+ must be achievable, I know I'm thinking about coming back from uni for this one.
  7. Saturdays Result etc

    Hi Pity we could not hold on for the win on Saturday bad defending cost us yet again. However on a more postitive note at least we are still in the top three, automatic promotion is still achievable. On a totally different subject I recently saw an advert in the Southend Echo regarding some...

    Show me the league after twelve matches................. I'll show you the Champions?

    Always heard that you have to wait about a dozen matches to give you an idea of how teams are likely to perform. Thought that I'd put it to the test by researching which teams were in the top seven, roughly following each quarter of the last season LEAGUE TWO After 12 games: CHESTERFIELD...
  9. A Ron Martin Statement Needed. Ron, please read.

    Anyone seen or herd from our great leader? About time we did isn't it? We are discussing the problems of our beloved football club on here every day, the things that are fact, the things that are destroying us day by day, speculation and our worries for the clubs future. Things couldn't be much...

    The new Routemaster bus designs

    Sorry Spurs

    Juande Ramos said earlier this week that the clash with PSV Eindhoven would be a barometer of his team’s progress since he took the helm, but if that’s the case then there’s a grim storm on the horizon. Most people put Tottenham’s abysmal showing at St Andrews last weekend down to a hangover...

    Peace in the Middle East

    Something we probably all thought would not be achievable is coming ever closer thanks to these all important talks: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6998540.stm Praise Be!
  14. Tilly's Plymouth Preview

    Just watched the manager's preview video on Bluesworld. I thought it was fantastic to hear Tilson sounding so positive about everything. Hopefully this positivity will rub off on the players. There's no doubting we've been missing a bit of quality throughout the side this season but I think a...

    Stoke City v SUFC : Pre match thoughts

    Well, after Tuesday nights outstanding win against Birmingham I see no reason why we can't go on and bag all three points at The Britannia Stadium. With all the conjecture about Freddy and whether he'll go or stay during the transfer window finally over we, hopefully, might see him finding his...

    The Maths

    The difference is astonishing. If you consider 50 as the magic number here's a quick comparison: 8/12/06: P21 W2 D6 L13 F16 A38 GD-22 Pts12 38 points required from 25 games so W11 D5 L9 or W10 D8 L7 30/1/07: P30 W6 D9 L15 F26 A47 GD-21 Pts27 23 points required from 16 games so W6 D5 L5 or W5...

    next season is not going to be the bed of roses I think everyone assumes it will be. Looking first of all at the finances, the drop off for the gates will equate to around £50,000 each game which over the course of the season will be over £1.1m, then of course there is the sky money, which I...
  18. Half time challenge

    The half time chance to kick for the Fiesta challenge is really amusing.  Nobody other than Tilly has managed to get anywhere near winning the car.  If there was a prize for the best grass cutter than most of the players would go away happy.  I preferred last seasons challenge to be honest.   I...
  19. Do we really want to get promoted this season?

    I really do think that with a bit of good fortune in the injurys/bans department that promotion this season is not unachievable. I would however be a little worried that we would get really turned over in the championship. Dont get me wrong i know we did it before but that league has improved...
