    SUFC v SOSEMTCC - 26th July

    Southend United will again be playing one night of T20 cricket against Southend Cricket Club at Southchurch Park. Bar, hopefully a BBQ, raffle - take your chairs or blankets and a picnic if you wish, and enjoy a nice relaxed evening watching the cricket. I am hearing there may well be the...

    And the away crowd for Stevenage will be?

    So, we have dodged the poison chalice of Plymouth away on Sunday evening and Stevenage heaves into view. It felt like yesterday was the ultimate push by the Blues faithful and Sunday is very near for the next jaunt. Thoughts for the away numbers for this one? I'm reckoning no more than 1000...

    N0. 10 Ldnfatso Biggest Loser Trophy

    No one should feel ashamed of todays results, they were against current form. Fourteen are proudly awarded a "Gower" today (for getting six out of six wrong). This is clearly a case of musical chairs who will be left in top spot after 14 games. Out of 50 predictions this is how many we have all...

    A Leatherette Chair

    "Tara Brady had said that there are not enough chairs in the Boardroom for the Trust to take up their promised seat - so this should make it easier." So now we know why that so elusive seat on the board hasn't materialised.:winking:

  8. half time all on the pitch

    Went to my first ever professional cricket match Sunday to see Essex V Summerset, match was really boring and the crowd were so so quite. What was interesting was the interval, all the crowd went on to the pitch, adults with their beers and fags looking at the wicket and watching the ground...

    The view from Tufnell Park...

    My neighbours will never speak to me again. When I awoke on Wednesday morning to find my tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth and an empty bottle of white wine in my bed, I was dimly aware that something incredible might have happened. It took another 30 seconds for the memories to filter back...

    Sad and silly stereotypes

    This morning I bought a copy of "The Pink", the local Saturday evening sports newspaper to see if there were any previews of tonight's game. The only thing they have is "The Bluffer's Guide to... Southend United". I know it's supposed to be a humorous and light-hearted article, but it does make...
