    How did you do over the last 4 sessions?

    As the European Championships approach I thought it might be interesting to see how we have all done over the four sessions of the 2015-16 season. The following is the combined total and three highest scores over the four sessions. Of course if you predicted in all four sessions you are likely...

    Southend Energy

    Some friends of ours have just changed over from their current energy provider (gas and electricity) to Southend Energy and reckon they are saving money as a result. I've had a look at the company on the web and have lifted the bit below. Anyone already done this, and are they any good...

    League two promotion XI (Monday boredom breaker)

    just a bit of fun as it's Monday and I'm bored. I wondered which players people would have from our last league two promotion season under Tilly and who they would have from last seasons squad. So a combined XI playing a 442 would be best I think Considering we went on to win the league last...

    Play offs combined first XI

    Three rules 1) 442 2) the first responses for each position (2 for CB, CM, Forward) count 3) because I said so ! I'll start with the obvious GK - Bentley - his saves weren't for the camera !
  6. Orient tv

    I wasn't aware of this but Orients mega rich Italian owner is really trying to promote the club to the people of Italy. He owns his own TV channel and as a result, Orient have a weekly show on Italian TV showing highlights of 1st team and reserve games, guest pundits and a competition for...
  7. Sad news to report of a Southend United fan

    It is with great sadness that I have report that Mark Kohlbeck a lifelong Southend fan died on 31st October. Mark would be well known to a lot of Southend fans as he had a season ticket in the East Stand with his Father for many many years. Mark was also a regular on the away coaches in the...
  8. Ref Watch The Return of Refwatch Accrington (A)

    A new season dawns with our fifth consecutive year in this dreadful division which requires us to go to places like Accrington, as we embark on three away matches in 22 days with a combined distance of over 1,700 miles. There is an element of Groundhog Day about this match as for the third year...

    League Two Top Scorers

    I’ve just lifted the table below off the BBC Football site. It is interesting that while we have been bemoaning our lack of goals/fire-power this season, we have not fared too badly in having two players in the top seven scorers list. In fact the combined total of our two scorers is only topped...
  10. Ref Watch ...... Morecambe A

    Hardly a clash between League Two's form teams as we go into a match between two sides who have not got a single win in their last combined 19 matches. Does that point to a draw? If so that will be better than we've ever achieved there in the League with three defeats from three matches and even...

    Roots Hall "Home" Competition the PLAN

    Some may rememebr the "Home International Tournement" when England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales competed against each other during the season on a League basis to decide who was the top nation. The Roots Hall "Home" Competion is planned on similar lines. We have the East Stand, North Bank...
  12. Breaking News Just got back

    That's all. Best away result I've ever been to, combined with the worst journey home I've ever had (and that's including Hartlepool in the snow). Thank you, First Great Eastern, thank you.
