    Guy Butters Fined

    The article below appeared in the Southern Daily Echo a week before Christmas: CHRISTMAS COMES WITH A FINE AND BAN FOR PAUL Christmas can be expensive at the best of times, but Paul McCarthy has got to dig a bit deeper this year. The Winchester City owner has been fined £100 and had a...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Clark

    The Viking That alone might be enough words for many on here to vote yes to Paul Clark, but if you weren't fortunate enough to have witnessed his crunching tackles and never say die attitude, I suppose I should give a lengthier bio. The first local player up for election, Clark was born in...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Sansome

    Ah-oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, its Sammy! Yep, first up from the 4th round of nominations is popular goalkeeper Paul Sansome. If Sammy is elected, he'll become the third individual from the double promotion era to be elected, following in the footsteps of his manager Dave...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Webb

    For 84 years Southend was a team that bounced around the lower divisions. The opening words of the official club history are: "Other teams dreamt of Wembley, some hankered for the first division championship or a place in Europe - but Southend only ever wanted second division status." We'd...

    Which big London club has feed us the best/worst players over the years.

    I reckon in recent years its got to be Spurs. From memory we have had Gower,Maher, Steve Kelly,Guy Butters and now Barney all of whom have been I think good signings. Only crap ones I can recall coming from there are Jason Cook & Ronnie Henry. Worst has got to be Arsenal I reckon with the...

    Best Loan signings ever

    Blatantly plagiarising DtS' idea how about a line-up of thje best loan signings we've ever made. Anyone in the line-up is not allowed to have signed for us permanently: GK - John Burridge (Aston Villa) RB - Gary Parkinson (Middlesbrough) CD - Adrian Burrows (Plymouth) CD - Guy Butters...
  11. Yorkshire Blue


    Not another post about how we need to get more loan players in to sit on the bench, but a post about our young players out on loan. I can't find a proper match report for Joel Ledgister's winner for Gravesend against the Shrimps of Morecambe (disappointing if only for the missed opportunity of...

    A few thoughts...

    I'll start by saying that I knew when we were promoted that there would be days like yesterday, and anyone who didn't realise that was naive to say the least in my opinion. Cardiff looked a class outfit who soundly outplayed us, just as they have most sides that they've met this...

    The fbm view and ratings

    BRIGHTON ROCK AS LATE SHOW SEALS BLUES PASSAGE Southend made heavy going of their 2nd round Carling Cup tie against Brighton at Roots Hall this evening, but in the end it was a naive managerial decision by Albion caretaker boss Dean Wilkins that showed Blues the way.  Tilly had made 2 changes...
  14. Just got back

    Incredible. Pretty poor performance for the first 83 minutes then one of the most crazy ten minutes I've ever seen. Eastwood scored a cracker, Lewis Hunt scored one of the best goals I've ever seen - a 25 yard scissors kick, and even more remarkable, Billy Paynter scored! I thought...

    Best Loan ever

    I'll start the ball rolling with Lee Chapman 1 game 1 goal a 100% goalscoring record Guy Butters To Centre Back from Spurs. Barry Hunter, Played for NI just after his loan spell ended (IIRC) nuff said
  16. Who are ya?

    Who are ya? I don't know if anyone has seen this, but you choose a character from a sitcom or, bizarely, a dictator then the bot asks you questions and guesses who you are. I thought I'd beat it with Butters from South Park but to no avail.... Anyway, its a good waste of five minutes.
