    FIFA World Rankings

    Good article here helping to explain the FIFA World Rankings, which I know are often a source of amusement on here. Fair play to those nations who play the system... http://thesetpieces.com/world-football/beating-system-wales-planned-seeding-success-calculator/
  2. New Lower League Blog

    Fellow Southend fans, I've decided to start up a new blog about the lower leagues, involving the Championship and below. (Yes I was a little worried as to if the Championship counts as a 'lower league'). It's more for my own amusement rather than anything, but I wondered what you all thought...

  4. From the training ground.

    From the Training Ground. Lots of crossing and shooting practice today. Dickinson looked very sharp. He has one of the hardest shots I've seen in practice, just needs to keep them down tho, as too many went flying into the trees. I'm all for the power thing tho as it gives the goalie less time...

    Kia Abdullah's amusement at toffs' fatal crash

    Occasional Grauniad columnist Kia Abdullah really is a charming girl. She's taking 'class warfare' to a low that I'm sure certain SZ posters would enjoy. Is this the politics of envy? Seems like it to me. Make your own mind up - link Personally, despite my own abhorrence of her comments, I...

    Question Was this a carefully laid man-trap?

    Had a bit of a strange moment over the Christmas period, that I'm hoping you folks can help me with. The wife had decided that she wanted to watch Sex and the City 2 which I'm sure I don't need to tell you was not really my bag (being neither female or gay). Rather than disappear off to another...

    Hamilton v Hearts

    Well it just goes to show how **** the SPL is. I am watching this on espn in amusement. About 3k there. 3 sided ground with one side not open! Terrible football with zero atmosphere. Thank **** for league 2. Southend would probably finish in the top 4 in the SPL
  8. Is this acceptable club behaviour? Didn't think so...

    With our exams and assignments over, me, my housemates and a select few other lads decided a proper session was in order... So we hopped on the train over to Brighton to escape Eastbourne. Top night all round, Beers over the football and on to a few bars whilst ITV made a hash of it before...

    Wilkins Worried By Wobbles

    After a hard night at Roots Hall, Luis Felipe Scolari was in no mood to face the media. Perhaps he was locked in the dressing room with a blackboard, some chalk and a squad still struggling to understand the concept of zonal marking. Whatever the reason, it was Ray Wilkins who squeezed into the...

    Would you move to Blackpool for double your money.

    I was watching the play off finals between Blackpool and Yeovil on Sunday with the lads down our local while battling with the worst roast I have ever had the misfortune to eat. The lads and I did a mission to Blackpool about 10 years ago to celebrate my mates 18th and I have got to say I have...

    Hull, Hell And Happiness

    18 hours of hell, 1 moment of ecstasy ..... 4.00pm - get up from bed (I work nights), showered, breakfasted, watch greedy tart crying because she only won a tenner on Deal Or Sod Off, Noel. 5.00pm - can't afford the bus fare to Billericay station, where Chipper is being dropped off from...

    See you next Wednesday - A match report

    Well, what can I say. Some of the worst officials I've seen at the hall, the ref was a disgrace, missing most things, yet giving trivial thing. Hard but fair tackles were penalised, Freddy, fouled but with the ball at his feet in front of goal is stopped to take the ball back for a freekick...

    Having a nightmare with BT

    Dear BT, I think we need to talk. I've been thinking about this a long time and I've come to the conclusion that...well, I don't think we should see each other anymore. Look, don't get upset. It's not me, it's you. Do you remember when we first met? I'll save you the trouble of...

    Blackpool by Plane

    Sorry its a bit late but what a day out. Stayed at my old mans in Hullbridge and got picked up by mates at 4am for short trip to Stansted. After being harrased by the security staff we set of for the bar and had a quick drink. Got to departure lounge and it was full of Southend fans - Maybe...

    The Club shop merchandise

    Whilst coming to work this morning I found solace in my Southend United golf brolley, purchased from the official shop I hasten to add. The weather being very blustery and driving rain would cause me no problems I thought to myself, knowing the club had sourced out the best merchandise it could...
