    Southend vs Southampton

    BATTLING BLUES GET WIN AT LAST What a difference a week makes. Morale and spirit hit a new low after last Saturday's abject performance against a very ordinary Wolves side. The local press ran a feature through the week revolving around the supporters views on what had gone wrong. Some -...

    Steve Claridge

    It was quoted in todays Sun that the aforementioned player wants to play one more league game to bring his total league apperances up to 1,000, and he would play for free. Given our current lack of goals, and our apparent lack of money, combined with our inability to attract players of any...

    Know Your Neighbour

    Before I bought my Season Ticket, somebody said to me be careful, as you don't know how you will sit next to, they may be a pain in the @rse. How true that has turned out! I sit with a friend & his 10 year old son, who wears his SUFC shirt all the time & loves his trips to The...

    Tonight's insurance

    I fully expect at least one of tonight's games to go against us, but obviously, hope both do not. Therefore, it's insurance time. Basically, this means paying out money I am willing to forego in the hope that both Brentford and Col Ewe do not win. So tonight, I am prepared to pay £25 that they...

    The fbm view and ratings

    Southend blasted Brentford apart in front of over 10,000 fans at Roots Hall to storm back to the top of league one. In the past, Blues have normally suffered stage fright on such occasions but it became evident as soon as the players ran out onto the pitch that they were pumped up for this one...
