  1. Thatchers Children

    To save hi-jacking the Brexit thread I thought people might like to explain who they first voted for and why. Lets keep it to your personal reasons so no need to repeat to many grand and well covered anti Thatcher rants etc. I had left school in 1981 so my first vote was for Labour in 1983. If...

    England fans abroad

    The current crowd disturbances in France always seem to involve England supporters in some way or the other. Either as victims or aggressors our fans are never out of the headlines. Once you give a dog a bad name it never goes away and that, again, seems to be the case in France. What annoys me...

    the wrong foot

    Whilst I admire our solidity and workrte, one thing that annoys me about the way PB sends out is teams is his tendency to play wide midfielders on the wrong foot. I'm sure he'd say it keeps the team narrow and solid etc, but it means we're not seeing the best of players like Worrall and Weston -...
  4. Question All At Sea?

    Sorry in advance for whoever this annoys... Does anyone know when the next issue of All At Sea comes out and where I can get it from? Thanks! :thumbsup: This thread can be deleted once I have my answer!

    Lifestyle change - who's with me?

    Holidays soon (can't wait) and then I will be undertaking a serious lifestyle change. This year has been a year of drama for me and unfortunately, I haven't eaten anywhere near as healthily this year as I would like due to a lack of time, quite a lot of convenience food and the pounds have...

    East Black gobby pillock

    "Naah! Saffend manor are better than this! Saffend are rubbish! canvey could beat this lot"! Who is this gobby tw*t? He even annoys me on the train!
  7. Sturrock & Eastwood

    Fully believe now that Freddy wasn't a Sturrock signing. How on earth can he leave a player like Freddy on the bench today, it beggars belief and it annoys me that we are seemingly going to use such a talented and creative player so sparingly whilst bringing on untried kids like Clarke-Harris...

    Hi All !

    Hi Everyone ! Im a new member on the board. Been a supporter for about 16years. I live in Bedfordshire so only make the occasional game. Last match i made it to was Bristol Rovers 1-1 draw back in November. I have no connection to Southend except they are fairly regional living in East Anglia. I...

    what would you rather have ?

    Peolpe say this is a s**t league and we have to get out of it , which really annoys me. But think about this scenario. We make it to the championship and spend 10 years finishing a place or two above the relegation spot every year. Or we spend the same 10 years fighting promotion and relegation...
  10. we don't deserve promotion because so many of our fans are complete *****.

    Regardless of our position in the league or last nights performance what annoys me most is the attitude of too many of our supporters at roots hall. It has been the same for several years not just since tilson left. I much prefer away games these days.

    What annoys me

    Question Youngsters loans and work experience

    In my role as SUFC researcher for the Football Manager games, it's my job to keep the playing history of SUFC players up-to-date. I have found out in my four years of doing this job that Southend United are awful at keeping fans informed of the loan spells of youth or young players. A lot of...

    Blame the Manager?

    Just read this article - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9346616.stm - and with all the speculation about the jobs of Grant, Hodgson and Ancelotti and the number of managers who have been sacked in the last couple of weeks, it's got me thinking. Why is always the managers who get the...
  14. What do you expect from Tilly next season?

    We will see how good Tilly really is over the coming few months. He has to try and persuade the best players to stay on reduced contracts when up for renewal. Some have already made their mind up, and are off no matter what he says. He has to rebuild the team and squad under severe financial...

    Rubbish Arsenal Fans

    This is the uncut version of a column for tomorrow's Irish Examiner. I have to strip out 125 words before I can file, but I wanted the full version to get read before I took the knife to it. These people, they really, really grind my balls. The Arsenal fans. Not the Irish. They're lovely...

    Sufc till we die

    The years i've supported Southend, this defeat is right up there with one of the hardest defeats we've had to take. Horrible gut feeling. But, i really do believe that we will not go down to league two. Friday night against Charlton, i want all us fans getting so loud and singing our hearts...

    Are you a morning person?

    Simple really- are you a morning or night time person. I personally can't stand the morning's, and I write this after even the simplist thing of my Dad ringing me annoys me. I rarely talk in the mornings. I can't face questions, and it generally takes until about 10 for me to become...

    Early Leavers

    I have one thing to say to all those hundreds upon hundreds mucking bankers who leave early & disturb people who stay to the final whistle to support their team & applaud the lads off at the end. Whats that I hear you ask? :finger::finger::finger::finger::finger::finger: Oh yes & :finger: Do...
  19. How come we never sign this type!!!

    Billy Clarke from Ipswich, scored goals for fun on loan at Darlington and joins Northampton this week and whacks a hat trick v crewe today. He is a class act and has been highly thought of every where he has gone. Did we try and get him, if so why not, it cant be wages cos northampton cant...
  20. 4 changes to start - hits and misses

    3 points Yippeeee Freedman - he so annoys me with the experienced old pro act and his legs are heavy .... but he plays his football at a higher level and is quality HIT Sankofa Sankofa - careful and tidy .... although he had the benefit of a bit more cover than Betsy would have offered...
