  2. Hi everyone

    New member here. Moved to Essex for a spell from 1989 through 1998-ish and started following Southend United as my "local team" shortly thereafter. Went pretty regularly through the promotion seasons, driving to away games in a C-Reg Rover 216 with Jamie from Grays and Stuart "the postman"...

    Southend United Haulage XI

    Bored on a trip to and from North Nottinghamshire yesterday I thought of looking out for haulage lorries with the company names on to see if I could conjure up a Southend XI, based on the company names/surname of players. I did, and it was none too bad. In either 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 formation this...

    PES 16 vs FIFA 16

    Back in the day Fifa was awful and Pro Evo the better game. Pro Evo then seemed to get bogged down and Fifa came on leaps and bounds to take the crown. The games were better and the polished presentation was miles better and Ive had Fifa every year for some time. However Ive not yet played FIFA...

    David Crown

    David Crown missed the Shrewsbury game on Saturday because of an illness. (Perhaps he saw what was coming?) Get better soon David. The place is a lot duller without you about!

    Marcos Maidan Bt Broner by UD Boy was I happy to see this result come in. Big mouthed, self proclaimed heir to Mayweather's thrown sent crashing back down to earth by Maidana.

    Question Best Dave/David to ever play for SUFC

    Got to be Dave Crown surely?
  18. Craig Reid

    is there any chance of him playing for you tomorrow?. He was quite a legend down here, albeit in the non-league, but I can honestly say that 99.9% of Newport fans were gutted when he was sold on to Stevenage. Whatever he will get a great reception from all county fans tomorrow. Some on our forum...
