    A thank you to the Shrimperzone management

    My tickets for last night were from the shirt sponsorship, so cheers to the team for sorting those out, and the sponsorship as well. The gents I usually watch with couldn't make it last night, so I took a mate that is assistant manager at a pub, so almost never gets the chance to get to a game...
  2. Help Needed

    HELP NEEDED I see the government is looking for volunteers to spend a couple of hours a week Mentoring newly arrived migrants, as apparently, these poor loves need looking after So bearing In mind, we have the most left wing, pc correct messageboard of any club in the league, I thought who...

    Vote Mourinho!

    In the wake of the inevitable sacking of Steve McClaren, the English Football Association has promised an urgent review of the national game. They might want to start by looking at the cack-handed, bungling manner in which they last tried to hire a manager and promising to avoid a repeat...

    NFL in London

    As big sport fan an after all the hype I thought id watch the NFL game yesterday and see what this American football is all about. Despite my open mind to the sport i couldn’t help but cry over that beautiful, finely cut, perfectly green and exquisitely flat pitch get ripped to shreds but...
  5. Will Tilson resign!!

    This Southend man through and through that supports Leeds and would be Norwich manager if Martin gave him permission to speak to them is loosing his creditability! The money he’s wasted on Foran, Paynter, Harrold and the wages of Ricketts must give Ron a massive headache when asked for more...

    league one Whipping boys!

    I am scared...very scared, because we have just been stuffed by a side who are patched up as beens,with hardly any players to note of worthy class. I am not going to go down the tilly bashing line, but todays result was poor,very very poor.There is no one out there who can convince me that leeds...

    "Strike" force

    Maybe I'm wrong but I reckon we have the weakest strikers in the division overall. I really cannot see any of them getting more than half a dozen this season. Someone convince me I'm wrong...please!
  8. My lasting Tribute to the Blues

    About 5 years ago i had a baby son and managed to convince my X that Sammy would be a great name.......she agreed (unwittingly) and cottoned on why i suggested it a few months later. Now 5 years on i have just got married again and in the car travelling to work we were discussing names for...

    Man U sign 9-year-old!

    Can't see this mentioned elsewhere, but Manchester United have signed a 9-year-old boy from Brisbane, Australia. His grandfather sent them a DVD of the lad playing and that was enough to convince the club to bring him over. He's being hailed as the next Wayne Rooney. Oh, and he has a British...

    Ghost Whisperer

    I, er I mean a "friend of mine" religously watches Ghost Whisperer and has seen all 40 odd episodes. Its about a girl who can converse with ghosts and helps them finish their unfinished business so they can cross over. Its nothing like 6th Sense at all because er he was a young boy and she...
  12. Jason Scotland

    Daily Express (Scottish Edition) 15-3-07 Shrimpers Want Jason Southend want to sign St Johnstone striker Jason Scotland. The struggling Championship side, who also have former Motherwell players Stevie Hammell and Richie Foran, have already spoken to the the frontman's agent and are...
  13. The Press Conference

    I know this has probably been covered already but I've just watched the press conference on the OS. Great show of unity from Ron and our management duo. Ron said he'd build the stadium whether we're in the championship or league 2 which is great to hear. I know a few of you fear we...

    Away from home

    At the moment I am trying not to look at the table in a vain effort to convince myself that its too early to get a true impression of the table. However in fit of madness I looked and it really hit home to me where our problems lie. 3 goals in total from 8 away games is shocking really. Not...

    Why we need to be EXTREMELY WORRIED…

    … YET STRANGELY OPTIMISTIC!! Sometimes when a team is promoted, the momentum from previous seasons can be enough to carry you still forward – see Wigan last season in the Premiership and just look at what we achieved last year ourselves. But then sometimes the step up in class is just too...
  16. Clarke on Blackpools OS

    Nice piece on Clarke explaining his move on Blackpools OS. Not much we didnt know... Credit Blackpools OS
  17. What do you think we can achieve?

    Last night, during discussing the possible Trundle transfer, I may have got a bit carried away, but I said that I think we can go up!! Or, let me expand, I think Tilson thinks we can go up - secretly... I started to explain myself in terms of the Trundle transfer and how much that could...

    Will this warm weather put Hammell off?

    With the visit today of Hammell and his girlfriend a thought just came to mind. Will he think its like this all the time in Southend? Will he be able to cope with more the 15C and 2 hours of continuous sunlight? And more importantly will his girlfriend say no way after seeing our local totty...

    We have got a mates stag do coming up in June in Germany for the WC and are debating how best to stich him up. My mate Matt who is best man has come up with the following idea which a few of us think is horrible. His plan is we do nothing to him all week until the last day when we give him £50...

    Gillingham handed Transfer Embargo....

    I see "The Gills" were placed under a transfer embargo today after borrowing £200k of PFA cash. Scally was insistent on the radio that it doesn't stop them signing players though. They just can't use the PFA's funds to do so & have to convince the FA on every transfer they are reducing their...
