    My friendly invasion - Its was all big Bill Garners fault!

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday. The reason for me being prostrate on this beautiful Sunday was I was watching a one day match between Essex and it could have been Warwickshire or...

    17th minute applause vs Charlton

    Don't know if I'm a late straggler to this but thought this should be shared... sad news, more than happy to pay respect
  3. Errol Crossan RIP

    Not sure if this has already been reported but there was a minute's applause at Norwich today in memory of Errol Crossan who also played for Blues. A tricky winger, Canadian, remembered with respect. Played roght wing as I recall. RIP.

    Minutes Applause

    I would like to suggest at our next home match the crowd observe a minutes applause in the 49th minute as a tribute to the number of league goals Col Ewe have already conceded this season.....
  5. Ayrshire Blue

  7. In remembrance of supporters

    For those who may not be aware and want to be present, at the match tomorrow (our first home game of the year) SUFC will be remembering all their supporters who have sadly passed away last year. I have been informed that this will take place about 5 minutes before kick-off. Names will be...
  8. 64th minute V Accrington

    Following on from our sad farewell to our fellow shrimper Doug Yates earlier his week, I have been asked to advise that some members of his family will be attending SUFC's game on Monday. It is planned to mark his passing during the 64th minute of the match with a minutes applause. Please pass...
  9. a credit to your club and town

    Just a quick message to say hard luck yesterday, you had a couple of poor decisions although we played well. You deserved a goal I reckon. I think what struck everyone at Crewe more though was the attitude of your fans throughout the whole day, really good humoured banter all day and no...
  10. minutes applause

    nice touch to see our fans applaud the crewe player who tragically lost his young one
  11. Adam Dugdale

    Please join in Shrimpers, one of our players Adam Dugdale has sadly lost his young son, he of course has not travelled with our squad we are trying to set up at round of applause at the 6th minute of the match on Sunday, at a time like this it should make no difference what team we support...
  12. Kevin Hogg

    Final whistle last night...

    said it all. We have seen images of despairing fans in tears applauding relegated teams and those that lost in play-off's. Last night there was mild applause from a few but mainly silence as people just turned their backs and left.
  13. Frankie the half breed

    The not sure what to call it thread

    So, yesterdays game wasn't good. We all know that, I have a question though......Serious question, do our players ever visit shrimperzone? Because if they ever do then every single player on our team will be playing with there head down in low confidence, all I hear is slagging off, moan moan...

    Best Own Goal Ever?

    Post your efforts in here Comrades. Just seen this belter from Carl Jenkinson, can only assume he's been picking up tips from Leeboy. Would of no doubt got a round of applause if it was in the oppositions net, so we should celebrate just as much as its in his own. Koln fans seemed to like it...
  15. Q and a summary-- another broken promise

    Most of you will remember that Mr Martin said he would post a summary of the Q and A session held back in March on the OS,as a final part of his trilogy of blogs on the state of our football club. This Q and A summary has not been forthcoming and I suspect that there is more chance of France...

    Bafana Bafana Stand Proud

    South Africa 1-1 Mexico SOUTH AFRICA STAND TALL IN FRONT OF THE WORLD They called them the weakest hosts in the history of the World Cup. They said that they would be outclassed, that they would never progress from the group stage. They were wrong. After months of training camps and practice...

    Southend Fans

    Our fans were amazing today, top notch performance from the fans and recieved a round of applause from the Soton fans. Proud to be a Shrimper.
  18. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...
  19. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 2 (2005-2009)

    1st April 2005: Southend United 2 – 0 Bristol Rovers (League Two) The second half of the decade began with our beloved Shrimpers surging up the league on the back of a series of virtuoso performances from new signing Freddy Eastwood. From the second week of January we went on a long unbeaten run...

    A Stirring Match - A Warcry for Tomorrow.

    Col Ewe tomorrow and I'm sure we don't need a WarCry but sometimes it's worth remembering who and what we are. We are Southenders, Southend United supporters with a proud history and love for our town and our club, not dependent on success (unlike our deluded premiership counterparts) but we...
