    2018 summer transfer thread

    Couldn't see one started yet so thought we could start discussion, any players you'd like us to look at or ship out? I know from a source close to Powell that he would like to ship a few out, which I assume means quite a few in too. I'll chuck a name out there: Manny Duku, 37 goals in 42...
  3. OldBlueLady


    Ok everyone, it's always sad to see another stalwart of the lower leagues in trouble, and we know only too well how it feels. I've never forgotten how many supporters from other clubs supported us in our "Save our Southend" appeal 10 years or so ago. So, if you haven't seen it already, please...

    Question Last 3 games, who would you chuck in?

    3 games left... Who would you give a go in the 1st team? Obvious one is Ted Smith, and maybe Jack Bridge ? Not really seen the u21 team or other fringe / youth prospects, what do you lot think then? what about Kyprianou or Matsuzaka?

    Half Time Snack Shop South Stand

    What a joke at the snack shop at the South Stand today. Queue a mile long, ran out of hot chocolate, ran out of hot water and I saw one of the women chuck a bowl of what I can only assume was Luke warm tap water into the water heater and then continue to make drinks with it! Would not be...

  9. 'Travellers' antics at Canvey & Southend during the weekend.

    Just read the Echo's story of the above, disgusting. How come these 'people' can leave a site and be allowed to leave behind a mountain of rubbish, and no one gets arrested?. As for what happened in the Bell at Southend, can you imagine a group of locals behaving like that and no one getting...

  12. Col Ewe Fan on a Piece of String

    Just watching Chuck Berry in concert and he doesn't even know the words to his own song. Singing about a ding-a-ling. He is old so has probably forgotten the right words.
  13. Young stars

    We've had a few threads about the differences between our youth set up vs Crewes since the final, but one things occurred to me about how they differ. Before I start just like to say that Ricky Duncan and his team have done a magnificent job churning out a good few youngsters that have gone onto...
  14. Chants Thread

    Hi All, This is a random thread, but how does the chant go that ends with 'be a Shrimper' please? Also chuck any other chants we have into the thread. Cheers
  15. Its Only A Game

    Saturday 29th Footy Treble

    Fleetwood, Wycombe & Gillingham should pay around 7-1 Was tempted to chuck Southend in as well but thats one game too many and I don't like putting Southend in accumulators

    Southend United players as fruit

    On the Introduction thread Up the Shrimpers starts us off with Seth Plumb. I'll also chuck in the FACT that Jason Lee has a pineapple on his head. Shrimperzone tackling the big issues since 2000-ish, but I believe it may be the first time we've tackled this weighty issue.

    How much should a League 2 match ticket really cost??

    Hey guys, Was just listening to a football phone-in and a big issue raised by supporters was the prices of tickets in the football league. I personally think a "golden price" for a League 2 club would be £10 for adults and £5 for kids. I think that could potentially chuck a thousand plus onto...

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...

    Question Old football programmes

    Having a mass 'loft clearout', you know the ones where your back is on the verge of giving way, your sweating profusely and you've smacked your head on the same f**king wooden beam 3 times over. Half the time is spent being nostalgic the other half shouting 'What about this? Do you want this...
  20. Tilly on Look East

    A short report and interview with Tilly this morning who sounded very upbeat. Seems to think the hearing today will go well and is aware that we are suffering short term pain for long term gain. Didn't sound like a man ready to chuck the towel in. Feels very confident about the future.
