  3. Hughton Goes --- What happens next ?

    Norwich have sacked their manager and the youth coach Neil Adams is the caretaker. Where does that leave our loanees ?

    A friend of mine who works in the Amenities department at SBC has tipped me the wink that the Council are close to finalising a deal with uncle Ron to use the fourth side of the stadium as a store for the seafront deck chairs during the winter months. Apparently the bank of earth that will...
  5. Question The Southend Tigers

    We host Hull in just over week, who according to reports are none too happy with their owner rebrading to Hull Tigers.. How would we feel - let's say a new owner came in with millions - got us to the Prem, on the condition we were rebranded? So the question is Southend United, chugging away...

  7. Petition on Huntington's Disease - Bit Long-Winded but Please Read

    As some of you will already know, my wife suffers from Huntington's Disease. This is an inherited genetic condition with symptoms generally appearing in early middle age, though a proportion of sufferers get Juvenile Huntington's. It is one of the worst genetic conditions to get, and has been...

    Charlton v M'boro and the ex-Blues contingent

    We went to Charlton v Middlesbrough on Saturday and was amazed at the number of Blues on show. Middlesbrough had ex loanee George Friend playing at left back, he is a classy full back as he was on his brief stint here. Charlton was like a mini Southend's finest XI They had Dorian Dervitte...

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...
  11. Pre-Match Thread Cheltenham Town (away) Sat 15th Sept

    I know its a bit early in the week for this thread but as its my first game of the season I thought I'd get the ball rolling early. Having never been to Whaddon Road before where are the pre-match pubs of choice for this one? It seems like for as long as I can remember this fixture has always...
  12. Hatton comeback?

    My sources in the boxing world tell me The Hitman IS set to make a comeback. The rumours have been flying bout for roughly 2 months, but it's now looking closer than ever. Since he's been promoting, he's rediscovered the hunger and desire to step back in the ring. He's lost a lot of weight and...
  13. Introduction of goal line technology

    How might this impact I wonder long term on non premier league football (which might have it in New Year). With estimates of it costing $250 k to introduce will lower league clubs eventually have to comply?? Will it be a condition of getting into the Prem league (I suggest still a few years off...

    Cardiff City turning red

    I can only stop and think how I'd feel if this was my club. If someone came along and said we will pump $100 million into Southend United on the condition that - - we want you to play in red and - have the Essex coat of arms on your badge as the historical image of three scimitars and the...

    Overheard at Roots Hall on Friday night a guy who had met Ron Martin on the tube last week who said that Colchester Chairman Robbie Cowling has had enough and wants to merge Colchester United and Southend United.

  18. Does PS rate Sawyer or not ?

    So just what is the real reason PS won't play Sawyer ? Last night he brings on Mohsni with full knowledge that he isn't in either the correct mental or physical condition to play but leaves Sawyer out of the starting 11 again. Interesting how we get statements about Mohsni's issues but the...

    Roots Hall Pitch

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but the pitch at RH is probably in the worst condition that I can remember in a long time. I'm presuming that its like it is because of TefRons cost cutting exercise, but it could come back to haunt us, if we miss out on promotion/play offs. On at...
