    Are you going to Liverpool?

    If your going to Liverpool it would be nice if all our support would crowd together and be seen rather than just being scattered around the stadium! :loyalsupporter:

    Pre-Match Thread Barnet v Southend

    So, we make the fairly short trip to Underhill this weekend. Which is traditionally a happy hunting ground for the Shrimpers. We should have a good travelling army well in excess of 1,000. So the atmosphere will be good. We have already gone there and put 4 past them this season in the JPT...
  4. Ref Watch .... Gillingham away

    Man in charge on Tuesday is Danny McDermid, ex Army Captain based at Aldershot, but now listed as a Civil Servant. He will be remembered for an abject performance at Leyton Orient three years ago (yes, the one when Ibehre got a late, late equaliser). His first two seasons as a League referee...
  5. Cammo Day

    It's cammo day at the Hall tomorrow. Anyone coming to the game in army gear or putting on the war paint? Great cause Help for Heroes but not sure I'll fit into my cadet uniform anymore.
  6. Question Why was Harry Crawford at Boots and Laces today?

    On the OS there's a story about an army chap coming to Boots and Laces today to talk to the players in the build up to Camo Day. In the photo accompanying it (allegedly) taken today who's that in the number 20 shirt standing next to Sergeant Robert "Billy" Moore?

    Southenders and we're proud of it.

    This my little tribute to our fathers and grandfathers etc who make us all proud to be Southenders. During the war the Southend Standard had a weekly column showing news of local men such as: EKCO EXECUTIVES LOSS – A 19½ year old man has been killed in active service, the son of an executive of...

    SZ Desert Island Discs

    Not sure if this has been done before on here. Same principle as the Radio 4 show, you get to pick 8 tracks, one book and a luxury item; as well as having The Bible and The Complete Works Of Shakespeare. I'll start: Pie Jesu - Andrew Llloyd Webber Raining In Baltimore - Counting Crows...
  20. American college football

    Believe it or not, college football is bigger than the NFL in the states and instead of having one bowl game to see who is the best team they have a dozen or so, although the BSC championship Bowl will result in the winner being the best team (confused yet). So from the 19th of December to the...
