  1. Yorkshire Blue


    I'm sure I've missed out a few but feel free to list them below and I'll add them in and lets see if we can get the definitive list of Southend hattricks. If you've got youtube highlights I'll add those in as well Cox v Pompey (H) Sat 16 Feb 2019 3rd division Theo v Franchise FC (H) Sa 21...

    Players the fans would like for next year

    I know all depends on who we can offload and what funds Ron makes available but in a world where we had a sensible amount of funds who would you like Tilly to be looking at for next year. I'll kick it off with a bit of dreaming: Dervite and Sawyer on year long loans - possible but unlikely. Leon...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Webb

    For 84 years Southend was a team that bounced around the lower divisions. The opening words of the official club history are: "Other teams dreamt of Wembley, some hankered for the first division championship or a place in Europe - but Southend only ever wanted second division status." We'd...

    Pick the team of the Tilson era

    Who would you pick in the team of the Tilson era? Mine would be Daryl Flahavan (one of only a few keepers we have seen under Tilson and some amazing performances) Duncan Jupp (his runs down the wing, his tackles, his goal v Lincoln to send us up) Adam Barrett (Southend legend, works his socks...

    Contracts Expiring

    ...Does anyone know how many of our players are out of contract in the Summer? I know that Peter Clarke and Richie Foran both are. Just wondering as I would'nt like to see Tilly and Ron leave it too late and lose any potential first teamers because they are nearing the end of their...

    EPL Half-Term Reports Pt II

    Bolton - Not one of our most popular pupils, this one. Prone to fits of violence and if there's a ruckus in the playground, you'll invariably find him at the centre of it. That said, he has settled into his work better this term and is beginning to achieve some reasonable grades. A bit more...

    Pro Evo 2009

    Demo is up for download tomorrow on XBOX360 or PS3 from the Store. Freddie is in the Wales squad!.......kinda. Da Da Da DA, Freddie....Eatonbrook. (Thankfully edit mode is supposed to be amazing this year...) I'll see if I can find any screenshots of Leon Cort in the Stoke squad.

    When times were worse

    Ok, things aren't going brilliantly at the moment, but lets remember where we came from. I've been tidying some boxes this week, and stumbled across a copy of the Swansea Evening Post, dated Saturday December 13th 2003 (apologies, but this is obviously written from the perspective of a Swans...

    Who is the King of the Leons?

    We've had a few Leons at Roots Hall over the years. But who was the best? Clarke - brilliant debut goal against Gillingham and plenty more followed, but got sent off at Forest and then got bored Constantine - scored the goals that helped keep us out of the Conference, left under a cloud...
  11. Question Ex-Shrimpers in the Premiership now?

    Does anyone know of any former Southend players appearing in the Premiership this season? I can only think of Leon Cort! Thought I might find a couple for my fantasy league team.

    Million pound Shrimpers

    I still can't get over the fact that Leon Cort is a million pound player. How many other million pound players have played for Southend? The transfer can be either before or after their time as a Shrimper, but they must have (at least to start with, if we get desperate, I might bend the...
  14. To add to the.. what about this chap list...

    Carl Cort... just been released by Leicester City. Maybe his brother can fill him in on all the good bits about Roots Hall. Im sure he has been down this way before to watch his brother. we need a striker... he needs a new start... never heard any bad stories about him... Worth a shot? Fast and...

    Leon . C

    Well they all seem to do alright for us! First Leon Cort, then Constantine and now Clarke! Seriously I am not going to get carried away but the signs from his first game are very good. He held up the ball well and set up the two goals as well as scoring a spectacular goal. This is what we should...

    Roots Hall

    I am very much looking forward to the new stadium - I feel it will really push the club on to new levels but I tell you one thing; I ain't half gonna miss Roots Hall! I was sitting at the game last night and thinking about how much I loved the place. I still get that surge of adrenaline every...
  17. Dodgiest Away ground.

    They just showed a documentary on our cable Television here in Sao Paulo called the Real Football Factories with Danny Dyer. I know the man is a bit of a knob and some of his sayings etc are quite cringable but none the less the it was quite an intesting programme and brought back some memories...

    Southend's Biggest Judas

    Many of the more educated people on this board will tell you there is no such thing as a "Judas" in football. After all its a short career and they have got to make as much as they can in a short space of time. I however am far more childish than that and I expect all the players to love the...
