  1. Ref Watch ...... Oxford away

    The referee for tomorrow's match is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. In his fifth season as a Football League referee, he has only refereed Southend three times before. First was the dreadful match (until the last minute anyway) at Leyton Orient in 2008/9. He...

    Oxford United v Southend United

    As the next game is just over 24 hours away I think it's time to get over the loss to Accrington with a preview of the upcoming match against Oxford on Wednesday morning (Aus time) and Tuesday night your time. Oxford V Southend United FORM: OXFORD: Last 5: LEAGUE: Bristol Rovers 2-0 (W)...
  3. Question Is Sturrock important or impotent?

    Is Sturrock really a 'must have' ingredient to get us promotion or is he aiming to do well but merely firing blanks? I am incapable of understanding many of the decisions the man makes. Not just tactics but personnel and the use of personnel. Last year he brought in Sampson and persisted with...

    Me thinks..PS was not confident.

    Reading Luggy's pre-match interview prepared me for an opening day defeat. When the manager mentions previous losing starts (he openly referred to losing four on the trot with Plymouth Argyle) it suggests he has not got a great deal of confidence ahead of the game. It would seem that PS has...
  5. Ref Watch ....... Accrington Stanley home

    A short Refwatch this week as there is little to say about tomorrow's referee. He is Tim Robinson from Bognor Regis and this is his first ever match as a League referee. His previous Southend appointments have all been as an Assistant Referee, the most recent of which was Torquay away last...

    Your love for SUFC

    Reading various posts of late it seems a number of regulars are starting to fall slightly out of love with the club. I can really understad this as I think most people go through phases where SUFC is more or less important to us. What stage of the cycle are you at? For me I am probably on a...

    One For The Golden Oldies - North Of The Border

    Third Lanark, one of the most famous clubs in Scotland, have returned to their spiritual home of Cathkin Park. It was the club Ally McLeod played for and generally had the tag of the Scottish public's favourite 'second' team. In 1961 they were challenging for the title. By 1967 they were...
  9. Question What are you expecting from Freddy this season?

    I think everybody is expecting big things from the return of our very own prodigal son this season, but after missing a sitter from four yards last night it did lead me to think what should we really expect from Freddy in league 2? Now don't start having a go at me saying I've taken a miss in...
  10. Notes from Stambridge

    I went to the game last night (not that you'd know there was a game, with all this Mohsni nonsense overshadowing things) and happened to spend the first half stood next to The Wee Birdie and his assistant/mate (not sure of the guy's name unfortunately). Did as much ear-wigging as possible and...
