    Derelict shops at the Bottom of Victoria avenue/Fairfax Drive

    I don't know if this has been posted before but I went past Roots Hall today and the derelict shops at the bottom of Victoria Avenue and the corner of Fairfax Drive and they were all being painted bright blue with "Southend United new ground" slogans painted on each. The only exception was the...

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/15271829.Cheers__Wil_launches_his_special_micropub/ Looks to me as though it is on the site of the old bogs at the top of Hainault Avenue (?) (my nan always warned us off using them because of 'strange men'). Worth a visit next season methinks......
  5. Design an SUFC advert

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/think-youve-got-the-design-skills-3648121.aspx SUFC are after some free labour fan input into the design of the large gable wall advert on Victoria Avenue. I'm pretty sure some of the SZ creatives could come up with a good design. :winking:
  6. Seller needs for All At Sea

    Hi all hope the mods don't mind me posting this here. All At Sea is out on Saturday but at present we are lacking sellers. We need at least one, maybe two. It's an hour standing either in Shakespeare Drive or Victoria Avenue (near the club shop) before the game selling zines, it's not...
  7. Houses down Vic Av

    I just drove past the derelict houses down Victoria Avenue (on the corner of priory park) and noticed scaffolding is being erected. Does anyone know what they're doing with them? Are they knocking them down or restoring them?

  9. Sad News. Another Great Shrimper gone.

    I am very sad to tell you that we lost another long term Shrimper yesterday. His name was Tony Livermore from Kent Avenue Leigh. He somehow got the nickname weasel. Tony started watching Southend in the late Sixties. Tony was a great guy, quite harmless. Fit as a fiddle as a teenager, but the...

    our stewards

    Our stewards are quite possibly the worst I have witnessed in the 50 away league grounds I have visited. Only we could escort Millwall fans out the ground for death threats and allow them back in! - they threw coins at the W block - they ripped the advertising off of the front of the north...

    What a waste of council tax

    .... We paid for your hats!!! Anybody else think that the game yesterday was like a military operation for the police? All lined down Victoria avenue like world war 3 was about to take place!

  16. Dr^Penguinstein

    Hi Everyone, Supported the Blues since 1958, earliest memories Harry Threadgold in goal, and a 6 foot Yogi Bear on to the South Bank before every match. I also was given a lift to school ( Prince Avenue ) by Tony Bentley every morning with Ernie Shepherds daughter. We also used to lay out the...

    Want to buy some Millions and I was wondering if anyone knows if they're still around and they sell Millions? Use to go there as a kid.
  18. A Drink for our mate LDNFatso

    As you know Sunday afternoon we lost a fellow Shrimper far far too early. I knew Steve for about nine years and have sat next to him in the South Upper for the last five or six years as well as sharing more beers and away trips with him than I can remember. I know most of us are still very...

    Pre-Match Thread Dagenham vs Southend United

    Looking ahead to Tuesday and the state of our pitch and others in league two, and the up and coming weather, does anyone think the game is in danger, I'm thinking there is a strong possibility. Don't recall their pitch being that great in the past.
  20. New Hotels

    The Echo reports tonight that two new hotels are planned in Southend,one in Victoria Avenue and the other on the old gasworks site. Will this affect the hotel development for the Fossets Farm project?
