  1. Ref Watch ....... Exeter away

    Tomorrow's referee is, in theory, the best referee outside the SG. It is 6th year referee, Roger East from Salisbury. He has been given 4 Premiership matches this season. He is a familiar and distinctive figure to most of us as he did both the televised game at Gillingham (2 yellows and three...

    Pre-Match Thread Exeter (A)

    In all the excitement of the JPT dates and the Brentford replay, we seem to have forgotten that theirs an important league match against a fellow promotion-chasing team (1 point and 1 place above us) tomorrow. The good news is that Jamie Cureton is suspended for them tomorrow (he always seems...
  3. Hello

    Hi, been a supporter since I can remember, although when I was young and naive I supported Westham(mainly being due to brainwashing from relatives originally from east london) as well, however now I am older the last 7 or 8 years I have become a true blue :loyalsupporter: even got my first...
  4. Keeping your nose out

    Having been a journalist and involved in the media for most of my career I've fallen out of love with constant stirring up of football matters. After the little run we have been on, and having great quality like Britt and Tomlin upfront, has made watching the Blues fun again. I'd lost this...
  5. North Bank

    It seems nearly every match there's a scrap between us and the away fans! We always come on here and complain about it, and say how important it is. Stop intimidating the away fans! Trueblue has pushed for this, and it's all going to be ruined by idiots. Tonight it seemed to start after a group...

    Big Game for Bury but what about us ?

    This is a massive game for Bury- This from their board- Its a must win need to make money from a cup run could be the difference between relegation or staying up Chelsea away would do if we win sat. This is not an isolated view and is shared by many on the Shakers board calling it the 'most...
  7. Wow what a team......

    I was just pondering.......Southend have had some great talents pulling on the shirt over the years but if can you imagine what this team would have played like? All of the above players have played for Southend in the not too distant past.... Banks, Best, Hurst, Greaves, Moore...
  8. Ref Watch ...... AFC Wimbledon away

    Tomorrow's referee will be travelling a fair bit further than most of us to get to the game. It is yet another first year referee, Darren Bond from Burscough in Lancashire. [Anyone remember Burscough, the "smallest" club to ever win the FA Trophy and the team that drew Man Utd at home in the...

    The Case for the Defence

    The vast majority of threads on this board seem to be about either the keeper, the midfield (non-existent until recently) or the forwards, but nothing has been really said about the defence. Apologies for being positive, but isn't the defence blindingly good? Taking them one by one: Sean...
  10. Apathetic UK

    No idea what the turn out was for the Police Commisioner elections (been reported on here as low as 6%) but in the vaguely important by-election in central Manchester is was just 18.5%. Shocking, and the lowest since WW2. How out of touch is our democratic system. :nope:

    GTA V details....

    The first of many GTAV previews to come starts today with Game Informer's article hitting the digital newsstand. Continue reading below for our bullet pointed summary of all the important and interesting facts, and discuss further on GTA Forums: General Information: There are 3 playable...
  12. A Very Positive Experience

    As I stated in the other thread today I tried the club's Blue Lounge hospitality for the first time. I was greeted by the lovely Gill who explained the procedure for the carvery meal and was served the starter of Crispy Chicken Fillets with a sweet chilli and mayo dip. I chose the wonderful...

    A plea to the club - really, really important.

    Please, in time for next weeks home game, have it fixed so that fans can watch the feed on the telly in the bar. The reason is that every game, Dagenham Dave, or Dagenham Kev, or whatever his name is, wanders into the East Blacks and then proceeds to slag off everyone and everything SUFC...
  14. Question Am I in the right?

    Right, let me break it down for you. So me and the gf are going out on saturday. This has been planned for about a week. The idea is to leave mine at about 12:30pm. This is important as leaving any later will cut into valuable drinking time. So she phones me tonight and says she's just booked...
  15. Colchester and proud!

    New Colchester manager.

    Joe Dunne with Mark Kinsella as assistant, most Colchester fans will be happy with that.
  16. Roots Hall chicken or Fossetts Farm egg?

    Firstly I would ask the mods not to move this to the FF forum as I believe it is more encompassing than that. I say Roots Hall chicken or Fossetts farm egg as i believe it is important to know which came first. I firmly believe and have stated many times that the move to FF is our only hope of...
  17. The Truth ( (Hillsborough)

    When the headline of ‘The Truth’ was printed twenty three years ago Kelvin Mackenzie the then editor of the Sun probably never thought this day would really ever happen !. A day when the real truth of this disaster was published and hopefully those responsible will be named and shamed. The...
  18. Ref Watch ....... Daggers at home

    After a glut debutant referees, man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his second season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, but has...
  19. Ntfc view

    Don't be fooled by the 6 goals, that was a very dull game. Almost nothing happened first half, an Assombalonga shot wide and we had a header saved. You seemed nervous and hesitant on the ball, to be expected with your start, and seemed content to let us have the ball. We had it, but didn't do...
  20. Ref Watch ...... Northampton away

    A short Refwatch this week as there is little to say about tomorrow's referee. He is Stephen Martin from Stafford and this is his second ever match as a League referee. His previous Southend appointments have all been as an Assistant Referee. His card count in the Blue Square Conference last...
