    The Invasion of Gillingham - another short story

    Another fictional short story based on fact. Yes we did take 2,000 fans to Gillingham in 1921, yes we did take seven boat loads etc, only the names of the individuals are fictional. Not for everyone I know, but for those that wade through it this story is a tribute to your parents...
  4. Double down on our support

    Seems like we're in the same situation as we've been in the last couple of seasons. It would be a brave fan who can say we will definitely go up this year. However, it would be a fool who would say we don't have a a good chance of promotion. It's the annual roller coaster. Was just back for a...

    More local restaurant reviews.....

    IL Torrente, Benfleet. Food OK but overpriced and I think they are trying to cash in on an upmarket South Benfleet clientele. They didn't have Amaretto which is odd for an Italian restaurant and I saw them make an Irish coffee and stir the cream in. Don't think they will be around long unless...

    Daggers fans worried of trouble

    I have just popped onto the Dagenham&Redbridge fans forum (Don't worry i showered afterwards) and some of their fans are pretty worried that we might cause trouble. To me this is very interesting as i have never seen us cause trouble (physically). I wasn't at the Daggers away game last year, but...

    Petrol in a diesel car.

    A relative has just filled their diesel car with unleaded and driven off chugging to a halt very soon afterwards. Is the engine likely to be ****ed?

    Latest Rumours Michael Richardson on trial

    In case we haven't already got enough electricians from the North East who can play right back at our club, Michael Richardson is apparently joining on trial. More usually seen in midfield, his last action at Roots Hall was missing a penalty in the League Cup shoot-out v Orient, a game now...
  9. Blues Lottery

    Finally after being in the Blues Lottery since 2008, I have won something :happy:Third prize, which is an invitation to watch the first team train at B&L and then have lunch with them afterwards. What I can't understand is why this is the third prize? For anyone who is mad about the blues (do...
  10. A Drink for our mate LDNFatso

    As you know Sunday afternoon we lost a fellow Shrimper far far too early. I knew Steve for about nine years and have sat next to him in the South Upper for the last five or six years as well as sharing more beers and away trips with him than I can remember. I know most of us are still very...

    Memory Lane Chesterfield Cup Success let's milk it!

    We're all hyped up by todays result and recent results, so why not milk it a bit and as Memory lane seems all the rage at the moment how about Chesterfield in the cup 1939. My granddad (DTSs great granddad) went to the abandoned match. THE SPECIAL TICKETS The Southend United Supporters Club...

    The past and the future

    THE PAST AND THE FUTURE Stating the obvious really but this is my take on the history of the club and the lessons to be learnt. We can only imagine the horrors of the first world war but as life got back to some sense of normality, many longed to get back to dear old Roots Hall, but alas this...

    Prediction League three weeks away

    With the season just three weeks away a couple of reminders and explanations: Don’t forget to post up your predictions I know it’s obvious but how many times do people remember too late. Especially as its holiday season, I will try and put up the predictions two or three weeks before they are...

    Premier League-Ticket prices

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2013/jan/17/football-ticket-prices-premier-league-europe There was a time -when I first came to Spain back in 1978 and for some years afterwards, in the 80's-when ticket prices for top games here were much more expensive than in the UK.Not any more.
  20. fbm


    For God's sake this is getting ridiculous. The stuff I heard in the East Blacks today was priceless... No-one said anything after his fantastic quick distribution in the first half with a great kick to Tomlin who took on the defender and had a great shot. However, after their 1st goal, which...
