    Celebrity team talk

    Just heard that Jeremy Kyle has been released from the club + we are looking at potential other celebrities for trials during pre season. James Corden as Smiffy has been mentioned after his famous stirring team talk to the England football team, and maybe we could get Delia in after a couple...

    Breaking News Pint offer for Saturday

    DRINK OFFER: A pint of Fosters is £2 (usually £3.20) for Saturday's match against Port Vale in all fans bars between 1pm and 3pm. Good to see the club continuing to offer deals. However, there is an issue here. It's all well and good for those with access to the East getting a proper pint for...
  9. Pre-Match Thread v YORK

    Bottles of Sol 3 for 2. Justin Beiber tribute act. New CM player. What can possibly spoil the day. My guess at the team SMITH CLOHESSY , CRESSWELL , BARKER , STRAKER HURST , WOODYARD , LAIRD , MARTIN or TOMLIN ASSOMBALONGA , EASTWOOD SUBS : BENTLEY , COUGHLIN , SPICER , PAXMAN , MARTIN or...

    Drink offer at the club

    from the club.... Its a start I guess but SUFC have a long way to go till we see offers like at Morecambe if they really want to entice people into the bars before games
  11. FarmdogSUFC


    What are peoples opinions on Spicer? Early days I know but jurys still out IMO. I do rate him, just feel that he would suit a 3 man midfield rather than 2. In pre season, I really liked the look of him. Thought he liked to get the ball moving, ran with the ball, looked for the wide man, made...

  13. Aldersh*t

    Never really had a dislike for them but now cant stand them The mugs that throw bottles at us from the home end into the away end, hope they are coming to Roots hall. All over there forum is a real hatred for us, so lets see how many they bring to us in a months time. We seem to be the club...
  14. New bathroom

    As my bathroom is looking a little worse for wear, and at the weekend one of Mrs Mk's perfume bottles fell off the bathroom cabinet and smashed a great big crack in the sink, has anyone got any idea how much it is to fit a new one? Don't need a khazi as that's in a seperate room.

    Beer rant ....

    Firstly it was great to see so many at the hall saturday and long may that continue. My issues are these: A) Why is that every week we ask for common sense in opening the west stand bar early (ie) before half time and we are told its not do-able, yet we get a big gate and all of a sudden its...
  16. 'Happy Hour'? last night

    Really don't want to put a downer on last night but the Club really needs to get its act together on the promotions side. I thought the £1 a pint idea was a good one and the timings right, £1 a pint 6-6:45 which then means you've got a crowd in with an hour to go before kick off who will then...

    Tenerife Cost of Living

    I've just come back from 10 days in Tenerife. On the first day my wife and I took a taxi to the supermarket to buy a few bits for lunch. One of the things we bought was 4 5l bottles of water. Each 5l bottle cost 0.79 Euros. How much does the same thing cost here? Also I noticed diesel was about...

    The man in charge of our first ever match away to Morecambe is Chris Sarginson from Staffordshire. He is a thrd year referee who will be refereeing his fourth Southend match and his second of the season. His last Southend match was on New Year's Day at Oxford, which I didn't see but as we won...

    The worst day ive had since 1998

    Well i dont really know where to start. Yesterday was the worst day i have had since i got battered by thugs by liverpool street in 1998 and had a face like sloth (not much has changed ) and my arm was broken and resembled a piece of string. I was left wondering what was more painful...
  20. Question Happy Hour in Roots Hall bars on Saturday vs. Morecambe

    So it's £1.90 for all pints and bottles of lager from 1pm - 2pm on Saturday. Who will be rewarding the club with their custom? http://www.southendunited.co.uk/page/AlsoInNewsDetail/0,,10444~2146496,00.html
