  1. Breaking News Mitchell Cole Retires

    I know that this will get moved to the Ex Shrimpers pages but before it does, I thought the mainstream supporters who only look on these pages might like to know that Mitchell Cole has been forced to retire from Professional football due to his heart condition, which it is said has deteriorated...

    from Standard TALKS over a parade of shops holding up plans for a new Blues stadium are making good progress, a trader said. The future of the parade of eight shops, with seven flats above, on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Fairfax Drive, Southend, has been the sticking point for plans to...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...
  4. Paul Sturrock interview in LMA magazine

    Sorry if this has already been posted, but there's a pretty good feature on Sturrock in the Autumn issue of the LMA mag 'The Manager'. Talks about how things have been in the 10 years since he revealed he's got Parkinson's. Southend mentioned: "It was interesting to see how difficult it was...
  5. Ref for Saturday

    Iain Williamson Refereed our game against Telford in Nov 2008 Can't find much info on how he did last season but in season 08/09 he reffed 30 games and gave 138 yelllows and 6 reds. Some cracking comments from all round country who think he is amongst the worst they have ever seen (I thought...

    An Obituary

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when...

    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...

    We Few, We Happy Few...

    Come on now, let’s see those chins off the ground. This is what supporting Southend is all about, isn’t it? Agony, frustration and the feeling that the world is ganging up on you? That’s what we do. Ain’t none of us here who signed up for success, glory and blanket coverage on Sky Sports...
  9. Question Pitch Conditions

    Here's a thought on last night . . . Is it right that clubs who have pitches that resemble beaches are allowed to improve their squad over the transfer window rather than devote more resource (financially) to the quality of their pitch? They are gaining a huge benefit every time they play on...

    For the attention of Mr Robbie Cowling

    Firstly can I have my £18 back that you charged me last night. I know why you played the games against Norwich and us so you could plunder money from the least considered people on football - the fans. What I witnessed last night bore no resemblance to football. The car park was in a better...

    The FA Get It Right!

    Justice, when it finally arrived, was measured without being merciless. With a GBP20,000 fine and a four match touchline ban, two of which are suspended, The Football Association have resisted the temptation to make an example of Sir Alex Ferguson without letting him off the hook entirely. On...
  13. Companies Act 2006-Directors Responsibilities

    As more and more information seeps out about the Blues parlous financial condition, the thought had crossed my mind that some consideration should be given to the role of the SUFC Board in matters reaching the state they have. Until very recently, I was Chairman of a small transport company in...
  14. Callum Davenport Stabbed (and now charged)

    West Ham's 26 year old centre back was stabbed at his home last night, as was his mum. Her condition is apparently stable, but Calum's is descibed as serious. He was stabbed in the legs aswell, which indicates a planned and calculated attack IMO.
  15. Blues Fan Critical

    I am not a massive poster on here but I am asking for every Southend fan to pray for my son Murray's quick recovery on his way home from his gig on Thursday night he had a car accident and is in a very critical condition at Queens Hospital Neurological Department. he has a severe head injury...

  19. Best Bargains

    I'm a bit of a vinyl nut and over the last year or two have built up quite a tasty collection of classic albums. I was at home this weekend and whilst busy doing various planning stuff for the wedding, I popped into a local charity shop that often has a couple of crates of vinyl LPs. I...
