  1. Ref Watch ...... Bradford City (H) and symmetry

    There is a quite remarkable symmetry to matches between us and Bradford City. The two clubs met 25 times in the 20th century and we did not manage a single win at their ground and they did not manage a single win at Roots Hall. Since the turn of the century there has been another 12 matches, 6...
  2. Ref Watch ...... Oldham A

    As we head to Oldham with a vastly changed team from the one that picked up an unlikely 5-2 victory there just a year ago, the man in charge of Saturday's match is Chris Sarginson from Stoke. He is a ninth year referee who will be refereeing his eleventh Southend match and, for me, he is...
  3. Ref Watch ..... Shrewsbury H

    The man in charge of Saturday's match is Chris Sarginson from Staffordshire. He is a ninth year referee who will be refereeing his tenth Southend match and, for me, he is another one who falls into the "lucky to still be there" category. His last Southend match was co-incidentally against...
  4. Ref Watch .... Blackpool A

    Our first ever game against Blackpool was a 1-0 win 95 years ago. Our most recent game against Blackpool was a 1-0 win, back in November this season. In between times honours are very much even. We have an experienced referee for tomorrow's visit to Blackpool. In charge is Mark Haywood from...
  5. Ref Watch ...... Shrewsbury A

    We have come out comfortably on top against Shrewsbury over the years but our recent record away to them hasn't been that great. In fact our only three wins there in the last 40 years have all been by a single goal to nil. Jay Smith, Ben Abbey and Brett Angell scoring in 2002/3, 2000/1 and...
  6. Ref Watch ..... Wigan H

    For the second Saturday in succession, we are at home to a club that our League record against reads wins 7 losses 7. Last week worked out ok ! Tomorrow, we have ex-Select Group referee, Keith Stroud from Gillingham in Dorset. In his twelfth season as a League referee he has risen through the...
  7. Ref Watch ..... Millwall A

    We have a pretty dreadful record at Millwall. Although many of us remember fondly our 4-1 success in the first ever League match at the New Den, that is our only League win there in the last 35 years. We have an experienced referee for tomorrow's visit to South-east London. In charge is Mark...
  8. Ref Watch ....... Stevenage A Play-off

    Well here's the first of (hopefully) three refwatches we didn't want. Last week's one was derailed somewhat. I advised that we were due to get a young and promising referee; instead we got an old and very unpromising one! James Adcock became unavailable and Andy Haines was taken off 4th...

    Been placed in caretaker charge at Aldershot http://www.theshots.co.uk/club-statement-andy-scott/
  10. Ref Watch ........ Northampton H

    Saturday brings the 114th competitive match between Southend and Northampton including league games, play offs and various cups. Currently the aggregate score is tied at 183-183. Their last 3 visits to Roots Hall have all seen matches producing a red card. Is Saturday's referee a man to bring...

    Celebrities you would **** but no one else would

    For over 10 years i have been telling my mates how much i would love to **** Sonia (Natalie Cassidy, Eastenders), and Sue Barker (BBC Sport). Is it just me? Natalie has that look about thats shes dirtier than a dogs bum :winking: . Although i wouldnt take her out to dinner as she can probably...
  12. Ref Watch ........ Burton H

    We have an experienced set of officials as we jostle for play-off positions tomorrow. The referee is, I believe, making his Roots Hall debut; hardly surprising as it is a 400 mile round trip for him! In charge is Mark Haywood from Wakefield, West Yorkshire (not to be confused with League referee...

    BOXING: Darren Barker Set to Retire

    Not sure if anyone watched this at the weekend. But it looks like Darren Barker is set to retire after just one (unsuccesful) defence of his recently aquired IBF Middleweight belt. According to Simms he's popped his hip again and it looks like curtains for him. Such as shame as he's always been...
  14. Question Away Games!

    What's the furthest everyone has gone to support the mighty blues? (LEAGUE & CUP GAMES - Scotland tour of 2011 or whenever it was doesn't count!) Mine would be Accrington - 2011/12 Season - Won 2-1 :smile: Dickinson (2) - Penalty Hall (66) Line Up: 01 Morris 02 Clohessy 05 Coughlan 16...

  16. Breaking News Barker Released

    Contract terminated by mutual consent. Was a great servant for us in a very tricky time. Good luck Chris and thanks!
  17. Squad comparison to this time last year

    A week or two ago I was really concerned and was one of the doomsday posters. It really looked like we would struggle to get anyone of note in. A week later and a quick comparison to around this time last year (21-08-2012) and I feel we measure up ok. Of course there where quite a few changes...

  19. How many in the squad now

    I thought we was only allowed 20 players in a match day squad but I keep counting 22 excluding Barker so just how many do we have and are we breaking any rules .

    Embargo or not?

    So we've signed Craig Advanced discussions with Clifford and Bennett Still in talks with Forte AND Cowan I make that 5 signings. Two over the limit. Unless we release 2 players (Barker, Smith) - is the embargo over?
