  1. Dan Walker

    Hi, I follow Aveley when Southend are not at home. Southend have just loaned forward Dan Walker to Aveley. Anyone seen much of him in the reserves and youth teams? What sort of player is he? Cheers
  2. Pre-Match Thread Blackpool V Southend United

    Another l o n g trip to Lancashire. Coaches leave The Hall at 6.30am so my guess is the team will either fly or travel Friday. After Tuesday's long trip who will SCP pick? A bonus is we have not been picking up injuries or suspensions like we were early in this topsy turvey season. My team...
  3. Fossetts

    Anyone got any idea what is going on at Fossetts at the moment? I have just driven past there and noticed a big “Plant” cabin and a single digger on the land, now I’m not stupid enough to think that 1digger is the start of anything, but there appears to be a couple of minor excavations...

    How many points do we need to avoid the drop?

    There is always a lot of talk about the number of points needed for Southend not to end up in the bottom 4 at the end of the season. 50 points appears to be the bench mark but I've never truly known why. Is that figure based on previous seasons stats, or have there been clubs relegated recently...
  8. Southend United

    Following the cricket on Victor Chandler this morning I noticed that Southend United are currently playing Deccan Rovers FC in the Indian Bangalore Super Division. Well fancy that!
  9. Ref Watch .... Rochdale A - again

    The main officials are as per the original appointments back in mid-January, so I'll just reproduce what I wrote then with a couple of updates: Starting with a bit of Rochdale nostalgia, I paid my first visit to Spotland, or the Crown Oil Arena as it has been so charmingly re-named, 51 years...

  13. Question: Selling of match day programme

    Can someone tell me of any other league club where you are unable to purchase a programme from a) the club shop and b) before 1.30 pm for a 3pm kick-off)? In this day and age where we have Ron Martin spouting about taking the club to the Championship and "beyond", is it not amateurish in the...

    Well that was dire on a mud park. It was nice to catch up with a few old faces at The Hall, but the game.
