    Southend's greatest redhead

    Just seen this... 767665131467706368 Which got me wondering about who our greatest redhead is. Any thoughts? I'm struggling to think of any of note - Sandy Anderson looks like he may have been but I have only ever seen black and white pictures of the great man. PS - for avoidance of doubt...

  4. Ref Watch .... FA Youth Cup Barton Rovers A

    I post this not in the misguided belief that anyone is remotely interested in who will be refereeing tomorrow's match, but more as a reminder that it's taking place. The team all come from Northampton. Recently promoted Level 3 referee, Robert Evans is in the middle and Sam Anderson and Abdul...

    England Cricket 2013

    Third ODI v New Zealand. Swann and Anderson rested. Broad and Finn return from injury. Woakes and Dernbach dropped. Tredwell and Bopara in for them two. England 6/1 after 6 overs. Cook out for zero. A serious lack of love for Ravi on TMS. People concerned about Cook's batting which I...

    The Ashes 2013

    Sooooo, anyone care to speculate on the biggest sporting event of the year? England massive favorites on Betfair. I wonder if it will play that way.....Maybe I (along with others) am being paranoid what with it being Australia. You never know what they'll produce. Michael Clarkes form has...

    T20I: England v West Indies (Friday and Sunday)

    Myself and SUFCEssex are off to The Oval tomorrow for the first of 2 T20Is v The Windies Team news There are a variety of options for England to consider and the squad was clearly picked with an eye on Sri Lanka as it contains four spin options. It's hard to see more than two playing in either...

    OD - Week 2

    Brianstoke Batters v ShrimperZone CC Thing with Brianstoke is it's not just the level of player, it's the age as well. He's going to be a force for a long old time! Well, depending on what sort of wage warchest he has in the bank. I don't expect much today. Carl Belcon - 25 yo, BT...

    Memory Lane On this day ... 7th April

    With thanks as ever to http://www.sufcdb.co.uk/index.php As you can see we have a pretty decent record on this day in history but for me one match stands out from all others, probably one of the most notable league results in our history. As a mere youngster i was only at the last 5 of these...

    Premier League - 17th March

    http://www.pdc.tv/page/NewsdeskDetail/0,,10180~2318457,00.html Well that little piece from Planet Darts doesn't really tell the tale of the night, what an amazing cup out !!! Firstly Lewis was showered with beer and had objects hurled at him during the walk on, every shot was booed...
  13. Memory Lane Help me put together a Classic Southend team for FIFA 11

    Pretty self-explanatory I reckon... I'm using EA's Creation Centre to put together a Classic Southend squad to be downloaded from their website and was hoping to get some help from the good people of Shrimperzone. I think I'm allowed 27 players but I've got 35 on my initial shortlist and am sure...

    Cricket World Cup (50 Overs)

    England have announced their squad, with Prior coming in, somewhat out of the blue, for Davies being the main surprise. Also very disappointed that Tredwell and Wright have made the cut. They seem like good pro's to go on a tour where they may not play and spend most of their time fielding as...

    Memory Lane Sandy Anderson v Peter Watson Rd 1:2 - poll now added

    Our second tie is a rarity as defenders are rarely recognised, but it sees two defenders go against each other: the long-serving Sandy Anderson against the classy Peter Watson. Usual rules apply, I'll add a poll once I've given people a chance to put their cases forward and to wax lyrically on...

    Southend United under the Shadow of War

    “Southend United Under the Shadow of War” is my next book which should be published this coming November. For those that have seen my previous effort the “Forgotten Years of the Kursaal” the format is much the same, match reports intermingled with snippets from the local paper, and is my attempt...

    England v Bangladesh

    Bangladesh win the toss and put England in. Eoin Morgan comes in for his debut and Jimmy Anderson returns and a first test match in England for Stephen Finn. Under English conditions this should be a stroll for England ahead of the 4 test series against Pakistan in August.

    Leeds Live The Dream

    DID LEEDS GET LUCKY? Absolutely not. This was a fully deserved win by a team who paid for their victory in blood and in sweat and in tears. Leeds United may have spent the last two and a half years in the third flight of English football, but if this result is anything to go by, they're on...
