    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Oxford United 2-0 Southend United

    Hardly the result we expected, but this is SUFC we are talking about.....Two first teamers injured as well. Well that is our season done. At least "we hope" we have enough points to stay up and rebuild. Dismal performance by the sounds of it.
  3. Fake Watches on Ebay.

    It's incredible the amount of fake brand name watches on Ebay. For example if you type in 'Men's Tissot Watch' You will get loads come up, with a high percentage fake. The trouble is that the fakers fake the presentation box, the guarantee, the instructions and they even do a receipt. It's only...

    Southend United Haulage XI

    Bored on a trip to and from North Nottinghamshire yesterday I thought of looking out for haulage lorries with the company names on to see if I could conjure up a Southend XI, based on the company names/surname of players. I did, and it was none too bad. In either 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 formation this...

    Same old same old.....

    Deep breaths people... I know it May seem odd or hard to accept but we had the same old comments and reactions popping up this time last year in relation to loosing players, Brown being disliked or players loosing faith in him, and people calling for his head, this was after barely surviving the...
  8. Help please!

    I've brought my good lady to a lovely cottage in the Peak District for the weekend with a view to do some walking and relaxing after a stressful couple of weeks. What she doesn't know is that I plan to leave her with our two dogs at about 1pm tomorrow and drive the 20 miles to Chesterfield...
  9. Bolton fan here

    Hi all Bolton fan here. Just want to say good luck for the rest of the season, and hope you do well with your promotion push. We got lucky with a last minute goal, but I suppose that's football, and it's luck that my football club really have not had in recent years. Its a shame it was a...

    Video Assistant Referee

    I see that the first review off an offside decision happened today on the friendly between France and Spain. Lino flagged for offside as Spain scored their second goal which looked very close. A quick chat between the ref and video ref showed he was onside and goal was given. Not a fan of this...

    Millwall FC - CPO on The Den

    I am surprised no-one has brought this up as yet, our former CEO has inherited one almighty challenge as the new CEO at Millwall FC, and was on Talk Sport yesterday discussing it and galvanising support - which has been pretty forthcoming from the football world in general. Basically, Lewisham...

    Players going out on loan

    Today it has been announced that Steve Smith has brought the majority share at Bishops Stortford FC. Steve was Kev Maher's assistant at Chelmsford and they are very close. I would be surprised if we don't see a couple of players go on loan there. I also heard a rumour a few months back that when...

    Ron is Human

    I was surprised to see Ron in the queue for the Leigh On Sea Pharmacy that opens at 8.00 am today. It brought home the fact that he is a family man first and foremost. He still had his suit on from yesterday so no doubt has had a bad night. No matter what people think of him ( I am not his...

    Sponsors Evening last night at The Rendezvous

    I know there were a number of Zoners one way or another last night, and thought I would just say what a good evening the Club put on. Danny Macklin's first one and it's certainly the best I've been to...food, as always, was very good too. Always think it's good to see the players relax and...

    The man who brought us the Beatles. God bless George, without you the world would have been deprived the greatest band of all times (in my honest opinion). http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3483404/George-Martin-producer-Beatles-dies-aged-90.html?ito=social-facebook

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    Credit where its due.....

    Just a quick message to comment on how refreshing it was to see how Burton played under Nigel Clough. ... We put in a few very tasty challenges and not once do i remember them retaliating , cheating , diving , acting or generally whinging to the ref. They took the knocks like men and just...

    Derby v Southend 1976

    Hi, a request if I may to help with something I am writing Who was the Derby player that brought down one of our players when clear on goal in the 1976 FA Cup tie at the Baseball ground? I think it was Roy MacFarland, tho it might have been Colin Todd or Bruce Rioch. And was our player Stuart...
