  1. what we need to do?

    what we need to do for the rest of this season, 1) ibelieve first the supporters must now rally around the team and support them 2) The club must at all cost avoid relegation, if RM needs to offer the players an incentive to do this so be it 3) We need an very quickly to sign whether they be...
  2. physical condition of SUFC

    I have been very impressed the fitness and strength of some League One teams - Wimbledon, shrewsbury etc. I think our players give pretty much all they have got but how much have they got ? Oxley 100% Ferdinand - 40 % Turner 60 % - Kightly 80 % John White 85% Coker 80% - 2nd match after broken...

  4. Ref Watch ..... Peterborough (H)

    We hold a 20-19 lead in League matches against Peterborough and they haven't won at Roots Hall this millennium, their last victory coming in 1999, with a team that included Andy Edwards. The referee for tomorrow is in his fourth season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from...

    10th annual Dave's Joke of the Edinburgh Fringe competition

    The full list of shortlisted jokes: I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change. Ken Cheng (Winner) Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book. Frankie Boyle I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the...

    Tosspot Supporters of Southend United

    So as mentioned, we had to leave 30 minutes or so into the game and it had nothing to do with the shower on the pitch. My son has autism and is sensitive to noise. It's a strange thing because it only kicks in if he isn't enjoying himself. So to put that into context, against Chesterfield last...

    2016/17 Shirt for Auction

    Being offered for auction here with the full permission of the soon-to-be-heading-oop-north mcnasty, is this 2016/17 signed SUFC shirt. This shirt has been donated to Tom Leggett - remember him? The Colchester fan who stole our hearts with his run from the Weston Homes stadium to our very own...
  8. Ref Watch ..... Oldham H

    We have failed to beat Oldham in any of our last five home matches against them. Time for a change. The referee for Saturday is relatively inexperienced in only his third season as a League referee. Mind you, our last three officials were all less experienced and did okay and, in one case...
  9. The Big Dady


    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...
  10. Ref Watch ..... Swindon A

    Happy New Year, one and all !! For the first refwatch of 2017 we go to a ground where we haven't always got the best of a number of poor refereeing decisions. The referee for tomorrow is relatively inexperienced in only his third season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson...

    Imagine this scenario

    Imagine this scenario: Southend United had ceased to operate four years ago. During that time Roots Hall was gone and being used for other things. An appeal is made for funds to resurrect the club. A new ground is found and fans are invited to inspect it, but it is little more than pitch...
  12. Ref Watch .... Chesterfield H

    The referee for tomorrow is relatively inexperienced in only his third season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from Weston-Super-Mare, a shaven-headed 40 year old who works in property maintenance. The former Bristol Evening Post newspaper printer was promoted to the...
  13. Question A Century United: The Centenary History of Southend United

    I've got this book "A Century United"The Centenary History of Southend United" by David Goody & Peter Miles released in 2007 and signed by the authors and I wonder if someone knows something about it's value. The book is in a very good condition (just like new). Thanks.

    James Taylor forced to retire

    Sad news about the Notts and England batsman... http://www.trentbridge.co.uk/news/2016/april/james-taylor-forced-to-retire.html Only 26 and, under normal circumstances, a decade of top class cricket ahead of him. On the plus side, at least this condition has been identified before a tragedy...

    Colchester fan running to Roots Hall

    http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/14186036.Tom_Leggett_to_run_39_miles_to_Southend_United_s_stadium_to_raise_funds_for_son_with_rare_condition/?ref=mr&lp=16 Great effort to be fair; and would be good if he were to run the last part round teh stadium before taking up his seat - probably alone!
  16. Late(st) Supporters Forum update

    A couple of weeks back I promised a report back from the latest Supporters Group Forum meeting, apologies for it taking so long but things have been a bit hectic and time has been at premium, anyway I’ve now managed to find a couple of hours spare, so here goes. Hope you've got a couple...

    Memory Lane Sheffield United v Southend United

    I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Sheffield United. We are both SUFC of course, but I certainly don't have the same feelings for Scunny. I must have been to Brammall Lane about 20 times (not all against Southend of course), my first in the late 60s, standing at the Shoreham Street end...
