  1. The atmosphere at home matches

    I don't get to many away matches, but I noticed yesterday that the players seemed really relaxed and played with no fear. Is that a common theme ? If so, we need to create a much more positive atmosphere at home...starting tomorrow !

    So where do we go from here?

    Ok, the morning after. Going out of the cup is a pain and takes away the opportunity of some much needed revenue. But lets look at a few facts. We are 7th in the league and ok position wise. The away form is good, up there with the best in the division. It's the home form that is poor. The Cup...
  3. Pre-Match Thread Southend vs Portsmouth

    So what will we see on Saturday ? Jerome in for Coker ? Corr still out of form, will Barney get a start ? Shaq coming in for criticism, is he going to be dropped to the bench ? Bolger injured. Maybe the enforced changes will see a change in fortunes. Really looking forward to this one...
  4. Portsmouth numbers

    Have sold over 1400 tickets according to their official Twitter account for Saturday's game should be cracking atmosphere any numbers on how many we sold?
  5. The Blue Voice Moan

    Not to start an age old argument off but I have to make a comment....... Do they think they are Ultras from turkey? Standing on chairs at the front with their backs to the game shouting at people to sing when everyone was. Your an embarrassment. You sing terrible songs half the game as well...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Accers v Southend

    Stopped off in a pub on my way home and am making my way through a (reasonable) pint of "the guest ale" which is Adnams. Not a good game to watch I'm afraid though Accers offered very little; we were also a bit of "work in progress" (I am trying to be positive here). Other than a scare in the...

    I Bloody Love It

    That the atmosphere inside the Hall on Saturday was incredible. That I support the the team from the town where I grew up and aren't a plastic Manc or worse still a mockney. That I fall out with SZ members yet still can have a beer with them in The Spread. That we'll all be back in August for...

    We are the supporters. Be proud.

    I have been following Southend United for many years. In the old days we had THE North Bank and we sung our hearts out - it was something to behold. However. Today is was different. It was everywhere. The atmosphere was truly fantastic. Our support was little short of magnificent. TBV play a...

    Argentinian/South American football

    Enjoyed seeing three games in our fortnight's visit to Buenos Aires over Easter. River Plate v Rafaela,Bocca V San Lorenzo and San Lorenzo v Gremio (Copa de Libertadores). Had no idea SL were a BA team (apparently the Pope's team no less).Great atmosphere there too- easily comparable with that...

    Pre-Match Thread Cheltenham Away

    Next 'cup final' cheltenham away, again I think the first 11 may kind of pick itself coming off the back of two wins that has revitalised the push for the play offs. Couple of variables to chew over, Corr being available for selection, Murphy to possibly start???? Personally I wouldnt do much...

  12. Bristol Rovers new stadium!

    First post so please be gentle! Southend fan living in Bristol and after today's high court ruling that rovers can go ahead and build their new stadium thanks to the help of Sainsbury's, I'm now very worried about tomorrow nights match! Expect a celebratory crowd at the memorial! It's going to...
  13. West Stand

    I'm bringing a couple of friends to the Exeter game in February and was thinking of sitting in the West Stand. Where in the west stand (block) is the best place to sit for crack and atmosphere? Any suggestion greatly appreciated.

    What away fans think of Roots Hall

    The excellent footballgroundguide http://www.footballgroundguide.com/southend_united/ gives away fans the opportunity to review the grounds they visited which I found an interesting read. For Roots Hall they have six reviews I will post them on separate posts for clarity: First Northampton Fan...
  15. Newport Atmosphere

    All those who are going tomorrow, I Was wondering if we could recreate the atmosphere from Southampton in 2007? Mexican waves, "The Great Escape" song non-stop for 15 minutes, etc That was an amazing day out, yeah, we lost 4-1 but we sung from the first minute till the last! Lets show...
  16. How do you encourage your child to become a Shrimper?

    I often see threads posted after a birth of a son/daughter stating that another Shrimper is born. Whilst this is fantastic I wonder how many actualy end up supporting Southend and is the a way to encourage your child to support Southend. I am interested as I have two children a daughter who...

    Welcome to Yamaha League 1

    I couldn't make Northampton last weekend but found some local football to watch as Khon Kaen FC took on FC Phuket. The standard was pretty **** poor but the crowd (about 2500 - 3000) were really vociferous and it helped create a good atmosphere in the ground despite the sometimes haphazard...
  18. Football Fans and Cps

    On reading todays news about the new Initiative by the CPS About dealing with football hooliganism online and at matches i have some concerns. I don't condone Racism,Homophobia,or Violence it has no place in Football or society. But my concerns lay on how many just normal fans will fall...
  19. Fill Roots Hall (at least a bit)

    I read with interest the posts about how to increase our attendance and really applaud all the initiatives and hope we can get more people involved/interested in what is a huge catchment area. Just as a one off "experiment" if you will, why don't we choose a game (I suggest Scunny at home on...
  20. to all those fans that watched us at Wembley

    ..i'm not aiming this at fans that are still watching us, but those who supported us at Wembley but haven't seen us since. Dear all, I'd like to say a big thank you for helping us generate a huge travelling support for one of the clubs biggest games in our history. As you are probably aware...
