    Players that have returned

    Reading the Kev Maher thread on Ex Shrimpers made me think about players who have left and returned. Success or failure ? From a while ago a couple of successes Frankie Banks Roy McDonough I recall Bill Garner coming back around the time of the Tony Currie non appearance but I don't think he...
  2. Rons Blog 07.04.09

    Firstly let me apologise for last week’s “void”. It was my intention to answer the questions raised over a period of two to three weeks and at the end of that period to review whether supporters generally thought it was a good idea to continue with a blog – be it weekly, fortnightly or not at...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Alan Moody

    Next up for nomination is Alan Moody. The last two nominees, David Crown and Ricky Otto look unlikely to make it into the Hall of Fame (at least on the first ballot), probably because their glittering Southend career's were deemed too short. That is unlikely to keep Alan Moody out. In fact it...

    Another reason to be upbeat

    As well as this afternoon's fantastic win at Peterborough for the first-team, Ricky Duncan's Under-18 side recorded a 2-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers to maintain their challenge for the Youth Alliance League South East Conference title. Craig Calver and Kyle Asante scored second half goals as...

    Bill Garner

    Good to see Bill there today - forgot how well he actually did for Chelsea (as they were known then before the ruble takeover). Thought it a bit naff how the PA guy dragged Bill around all four stands holding his mike limply out, especially as 95% in the three home sides never appeared to have...

  9. Its Quite Funny Really

    reading all the posts and watching the reactions of the boys on this board, its quite, funny, when I was about 12 or 13 I too was furious when southend sold their better players, and failed to replace them with better players, I thought as I am sure some of the 15 year olds on here did, that...
  10. SUFC_Al

    20 goal strikers.

    Everyone knows that having one of these players can benefit any team and since the departure of you know who, there have been numerous calls for us to get one in. Never an easy task. It got me thinking how many times an SUFC player has achieved this feat, so using Robin Michels excellent SUFC...

    tomorrow, is the anniversary of my first Southend match vs. Doncaster Rovers at home, played on either Good Friday or Easter Monday. We won 2-1 (Billy Best and Bill Garner) in that promotion season. I stood with my brother on the South Bank. Just realised this, and thought I'd share it with...

  14. You'll never walk alone ......

    No-one wants to knock Steve Tilson and the great job he has done, or knock the players who have got the club into the Championship so its not criticism to try make suggestions or point out things out. And Southend have got where they are trying to play the game the right way and theres a lot...
  15. Bill Garner

    Anyone else have the pleasure of seeing the legend that is Bill Garner on the pitch at half time? And goes anyone know why such a legend was given the job of collecting up unused footballs during half time?

    DOncaster Rovers at home 1971/72 season

    Just thought I would share with you that tomorrow is the 34th anniversary of my very first Southend United match. It was at home to Doncaster Rovers on Friday, 31 March 1972 (it was Good Friday). We won 2-1 thanks to Bill Garner and Billy Best. I stood on the South Bank with my older brother.
  17. Hope he is better than his Dad

    I hope Fallon, if he is the new striker, is better that his Dad was when he played for Southend. Kevin Fallon played for us between July 1970 to June 1971 as a reserve stiker in the days of Billy Best and Bill Garner. Me and my mate Richard used to go and see him play for the reserve's and...
