    Memory Lane Visiting players who have been applauded by the Roots Hall crowd

    Oztumer was given a decent round of applause last Saturday for his second half performance - well deserved too - and the other thread about the hat tricks got me to thinking... how many other players get an ovation from us? I'm not talking about fondly remembered ex players, I'm talking about...

    Paul Alcock, RIP

    Heard today of the passing of Paul Alcock, the ref most known for the Paulo Di Canio pushing incident but also known to blues fans as the ref who sent off Macclesfield keeper Tony Bullock which sparked an almost "Full Monty" performance from him before he then hammered a ball into the East...
  3. Old Shrimper

    Hi all, Thought I would join to hear news and opinions of other supporters. I like some of the historic comments and pictures of times past. I first starting watching the Blues in 1951 when the club played at Grainger Road stadium, travelling there on a saddle on my Dad's crossbar and then...

    Messi and Suarez's "Cryuff" penalty: Disrespectful or genius?

    It's caused a lot of debate. Is it disrespectful to the opposition (the score was 3-1 at the time) or creative genius that should be applauded? Of course, nothing against it in the rules. Some have said why didn't Suarez just take it himself, although press today claim that it was supposed to...

    Adam Barrett will play 300th match for Southend in the playoffs

    Enough of this doom and gloom. Barrett, if he is selected, will play his 300th match for the Shrimpers against Stevenage. He becomes the 16th Shrimper to do it. I hope this gets appreciated and applauded this week. We need to move on and focus on Stevenage now.
  6. Battle Cries Looming so...

    Its time to vacate your forum till after Saturday . You have all made me feel very welcome and you are a lovely bunch of people After the game that never was I have a lot of time for Southend as the way both sets of fans applauded each other was how football at the lower leagues should be ...
  7. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-0 Plymouth Argyle

    What can one say, I am a fan of PS but today was a pleasure to watch again as a Southend fan. Work rate was top class and fitness I've never seen before for a long time. It's not going to be an easy season with the Tuesday nights playing on a cold frozen pitch so we need to mix it up a bit. What...
  8. After game walk round

    Afternoon all I would like to discuss an opinion of mine , that I have a problem with immediately after the game . When we lose , I feel that it is really poor of some of the squad , to simply rush off done the tunnel , without coming round and clapping the supporters for turning up .... Not...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Freddy Eastwood

    With Freddy there's only one place to start: has there ever been a better debut? I very much doubt it, and I include fiction in that. Scoring after just 7.7 seconds of your professional debut against the top of the table team before going onto complete your hattrick is the type of story that...

    NICE TO SEE A COMMITTED PERFORMANCE (committed in one way at least)

    I have to say given what has gone on and in such a short space of time last nights performance by the boys that want to pull on a blue shirt has to be applauded. Every player put a shift in and there were tackles and tireless runs all over the park it was a pleasure to see and a nice breath of...
  11. Soccer AM/MW thoughts on Tilly

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 What goes up must come down After their relegation to League Two was confirmed at the weekend, Nobes analyses the future for Southend United. Southend fans are facing up to the prospect of League Two next season There's a thought that football, like life...
  12. Barrett

    Lucky to stay on the pitch in the first half yet still moaning at the ref and making silly challenges afterwards. Was rightly sent off and a huge amount of stupidity especially as he is meant to lead by example. Worse thing is both challenges were in completely unnecessary areas of the pitch...

    Wenger Really Isn't A Paedo

    Sir Alex Ferguson has not exactly covered himself in glory in front of the press this season, but his spirited defence of Arsene Wenger's honour is to be applauded. The Manchester United boss has called on his own supporters to refrain from their sickening chants about Arsene Wenger when they...

    White Hart Lane

    I always enjoy a trip to White Hart Lane. Sure, it's in the middle of the north-east London badlands, a destination made even more remote by London Transport's fascination with shutting down the tube on match day, but there are consolations. For starters, there's the stadium itself, a hulking...

    England were crap

    So we were right all along, were we? All those criticisms of Steve McClaren's England, the ones that were constantly rebuffed by the players, the accusations that they cared only about themselves, they were all true? Shocking. I am so surprised I shall have to pick my jawbone up off the floor...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Billy Best

    I never saw Billy Best play. What I have seen was the reverence that those who had, hold Billy Best. The mere mention of his name and fans of a certain age go all misty-eyed. I first noticed this phenomenon in 1993. I knew Stan was good, but I wasn't at that stage sure quite how good he was...

    Barrett cloned!

    On the official site's picture gallery there's clear evidence that Bristol Rovers have been producing clones of Barrett. See image no. 8 here: http://www.southendunited.co.uk/page/Gallery/0,,10444~1541033,00.html Maybe they took samples of his DNA when he was there? I must say, in this day...

    Terry and Lampard at Full Time

    At full time some of the Chelsea players applauded our fans which I thought was a nice touch. As John Terry was near the tunnel applauding he turned back to Lampard and pointed to the fans almost telling him to applaud us. Lampard looked at us and turned his nose up before begrudgingly...

    My Roar blog - part 2

    At the start of the A-League season I posted a blog about my experiences as a newly emigrated ‘Pom’ supporting the Queensland Roar. General commitments relating to settling into the country (getting a new job, buying a car, finding somewhere to live) has meant I haven’t made it a regular thing...

    Stalemate at Stamford Bridge

    Apologies, it was such a rush to get this out in time that I forgot to SZ it! See if you can spot the ****-ups.... So near and yet so far. Manchester United came within ten minutes of ending Chelsea's extraordinary 85 game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge, pegged back by that most unlikely of...
