    TV Highlights Wigan Athletic 3-0 Southend United

    Ok, fill ya boots. The first took a wicked deflection off John White. The second and third were side footers after their blokes outpacing our defenders. http://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/competitions/league-one/11081453/wigan-3-0-southend
  2. Charlton friendly

    Charlton’s U21s fell to a friendly defeat to a strong Southend United side behind closed doors at Sparrows Lane on Tuesday afternoon. The League Two side sent their first-team to take on Jason Euell’s youngsters for the clash which the Senior Professional Development Coach (U18-U21) felt...

    Airport Noise - Worst Spin ever

    I live by the airport and do hear the planes but have no issue at all with them. Good for the town. However read this. http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/9795214.Claims_of_noisy_jets_at_Southend_Airport_are_rejected_by_council/?ref=mr Wtf? If people think the planes 20,000 feet up are loud...

    Morecambe - what changes would you make?

    After the debacle on Tuesday that can only be fully appreciated by the "Aldershot 461" (as referred to on another thread and plagiarised by me, so thanks to whoever thought of that. Sounds more like a book by Ray Bradbury!), what changes would you make to the team, either in personnel or...

  6. 100th league ground - Chesterfield

    On Saturday this will be my 100th League ground i have visited both old and new grounds. I started out back in 1987 going to Fulham away (first away game of the season, going on marion and chris's coach) we lost 1-0 to a 87th minute goal that was a deflection off of Danny o'shea chest. I was...

    BOGMISH Rd 1:2 - Stockport v Freddy's debut

    Aptly enough on the day after relegation back to the fourth division, our second first round tie throws up two 4th division promotion seasons. The first one, was the 1986/87 season and ORM's nomination of Stockport away. Football was having a bad time with the Bradford Fire disaster and Hysel...
  8. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 2 (2005-2009)

    1st April 2005: Southend United 2 – 0 Bristol Rovers (League Two) The second half of the decade began with our beloved Shrimpers surging up the league on the back of a series of virtuoso performances from new signing Freddy Eastwood. From the second week of January we went on a long unbeaten run...

    Boring Boro Fall To Chelsea

    The Chelsea rehabilitation continues, but the road to recovery is never easy. This, the fourth consecutive win since their violation at the hands of Manchester United, takes them to second place in the table, but they were certainly made to work for it by a Middlesbrough side who were...

    Should Shilton have smashed Maradona ???

    Had a good old row last night between my pals and all steams from me not being able to get out of my head how a 5ft 6 player albeit with his hand managed to beat a GK of Shilton's class in a 50/50 . Was saying that as a player i always want my GK to be strong and commanding , and IMO when that...

    The Title Race.

    If you had any plans for this Saturday evening, I'd start cancelling them now because this title race is going all the way to the wire. Manchester United's struggles against Brad Friedel Rovers, sorry, Blackburn Rovers brought back memories of their 1995 visit to Upton Park when Ludek Miklosko's...
  12. An Orient perspective

    Firstly, I thought 2-2 was a fair scoreline. You clearly had the better of the 1st half, we had the better of the 2nd. Turning point was Revells missed header IMO - if that goes in, its game over. Cant really comment on the penalty as I was at the other end in the North Stand, but to be fair...

    Own goal?

    When did we last benefit from a corking own goal? Not one of those weedy deflection types but a ripping net-buster?
  14. My ratings

    Flavs - Not too much to do. A few easy saves, very good tip over the bar when 0-0 though. Good distribution too. 7 Hunt - Unlucky for their goal, it wasn't an own goal from my view, just a lucky deflection. Defended solidly didn't push on as much as he done recently. 6.5 Barrett/Clarke - The...
  15. Cheltenham Raings - My view

    Collis - 6 - Not sure whether or not at fault for the 1st as you could blame almost half the team for falling asleep. Not his usual commanding self and a few more games like this and Darryl might be back. Not just yet though. Hunt - 5 - Player of the month?? Do me a favour Tilly and bring...
  16. Match highlights..... Enjoy :)

    http://www.football.virginmedia.com/page/leagueonevideo/0,,12555~1118745,00.html Collis definitely not at fault for the goals - 1st looked like a deflection off of AB and the 2nd was a pure freakshow.

    Shrimpers v Spurs...the Prawn Sandwhich view!!

    Suited an booted and off to the Lane on the 10:45 from Southend Vic having nearly been wiped out by an out of control wrinkly on a mobility scooter. I met up with my fellow guests and hosts and headed to the hospitality suite overlooking the car park for a few beers. Having obtain the...

    HULL HUMBLE HOSTS IN HALLOWEEN HORROR Southend hit rock bottom as they yet again conceded three goals at home to gift fellow strugglers Hull the points on a chilly Halloween evening. In a poor encounter, it was obvious that both sides lacked quality and confidence as the opening exchanges saw...
  19. Coventry Game

    I was impressed with a much improved display this week.  The lads fought and battled hard, and had more desire than they showed in the Cardiff game.  If they pull up their socks and continue to play like that, results will come. Didn't think much of Coventry and don't expect them to be...

    Liverpool vs Arsenal 1987

    Littlewoods Cup Final was on ESPN classics last night. What a rare pleasure it was to see hard tackles going in from both teams without the diving, whingeing, free-kicks etc. Both sets of players dusted themselves down and got on with it. In today's game I reckon there would have been a...
