    A Night with Roy McDonough (+ David Crown & John Motson)

    Southend United will be holding a Pie and a Pint night with Blues legend Roy McDonough in September. The former Roots Hall favourite will be in the Shrimpers Bar on Friday, 7th September at 8:00pm for a night hosted by David Crown to take questions from Southend fans and recall some of his...
  3. Southend 3 Spurs 2 clips now on Facebook

    For those of you who fancy a bit of glorious nostalgia - Big Roy, Crowny, Dave Martin and Benno, plus a certain rotund Geordie genius - there's clips from the Southend 3 Spurs 2 League Cup game in the 80s on the Red Card Roy page at Facebook...

    Drama of last few games a historical perspective

    How many seasons have been decided on the last few games of the season and/or also decided on other teams for our place for the following season? In 1931/2, we had our best ever season to date, with 2 games left we were 3 points below Reading and Fulham. That week, Southend beat Torquay, but...

    BOGMISH Rd 1, tie 3 Crowny v Searle

    Haven't time for a big write-up for this one, but our third tie pits two spectacular goals against each other. With home advantage is Billericay Blue's nomination of David Crown's legendary goal against Wigan. I think this might be the equivalent of a fishing trip tale, as every time I remember...
  6. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    I'm really looking forward to Friday because....

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Clark

    The Viking That alone might be enough words for many on here to vote yes to Paul Clark, but if you weren't fortunate enough to have witnessed his crunching tackles and never say die attitude, I suppose I should give a lengthier bio. The first local player up for election, Clark was born in...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Crown

    David Crown was my first footballing hero. I started watching Southend in the mid-80s, but despite constantly nagging the old man it wasn't until late 1987 that he started taking me along with him regularly. I suspect he was protecting me from the Dick Bate era. Fortunately the Bate spell was...
  9. Crowny on Eastwood

    Just checked out the PFA website and there's an interview on there by David Crown talking about Freddy. It makes for interesting reading. Sorry I don't know how to do the linky thing but the website is www.givemefootball.com It's the special feature. Check it out.
  10. The jigsaw is complete

    I remember reminiscing with some fans a few years back (when you got used to watching McSweeney and co it was best to reminisce about the good times) and I said that my two biggest disappointments as a Southend fan were that we didn't win the Division 3 Championship in 1991 when we should...
