    Breaking News Timlin and Fortune depart

    Now covered by Echo. Two superb pros. Gutted to lose Tims, few have given as much as he has and been a great servant for the club and I think he could still have offered us something. Shame on the club for letting him depart in this way after all he’s given over 8 years. Also means that...

    Contract talk

    It’s that time. There’s been a lot of talk about a clear out under CP and with rumours about Wright and Wordsworth it’s clear that he’s going to be ruthless. Here’s my take, though it’s a bit of a mix of what I predict CP might do and what I would do, though of course finances, etc., come into...

    The absence of Will Atkinson

    An interesting topic which came up today. There's virtually no doubt that had he stayed he would have played almost every game this season, whereas he's only made 2 starts since October for League 2 Mansfield. I wouldn't mind betting he would be cheaper than Josh Wright too. Primarily though...

    Question Whose got the luck? guts and stamina?

    Lenny the legs is on track for the hall of fame more than ever if he doesnt depart, although in all likelihood he will. I think hes turned out 23 times already and would be on track to be our first player to turn out in over 40 games a season ( including subs ) 4 times. ( 4 seasons ) pretty...
  5. Question next season

    I realise its pretty early to speculate as we are still an outside chance of featuring in the playoffs, but i for one dont believe we will dropping 5 points out of 6 at home to two lower teams ,says to me that the squad have been over performing,anyway my question is what do you people believe...

    Joe Pigott

    I suppose it is possible that "The Pig" may have played his final game for Southend today and if so what a way to go out. He has carved his name into SUFC folklore for all time now and his goal will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest ever moments in our history. Not only that but what...
  7. Bikers heading to Southend

    The 17th annual Southend biker Shakedown will depart from The Ace Cafe Stonebridge, in north-west London, at 10.30am. The fundraiser will see hundreds of bikers arrive at Southend seafront for a family-focused day out. Now the trouble with this is that it raises thousands for mainly childrens...

    Going against popular opinion.

    EVERYBODY (including me) has been crying out for the pace, energy and enthusiasm of youth in the England team. 2012 we looked completely out of ideas and just managed to grind results before losing on penalties to a team that destroyed us..but drew the game. Since yesterday morning all the...
  9. Guy Branston

    "Plymouth Argyle have announced that they have agreed a deal to allow Guy Branston to leave Home Park. The 35-year-old centre-back is suffering from an ankle injury which has effectively ended his season and after manager John Sheridan told the former Rotherham man that he will not be offered...

  14. Cruelty to SUFC Gnome?!

    I am being informed that my xmas pressie from the offspring now has to depart, leave, evicted to the great outdoors..... Surely this shouldn't happen? Am I to believe my SUFC gnome to be safe, out in this kind of weather, or from thieves, or even from being gnome-knapped by other vindictive...

    VERY URGENT - May need a lift back from Shrews

    This is NOT a wind up. Story is too long to go into now but will potentially go down as an SZ classic. As you may know I'm off to HK for good in 11 days time. As the Swindon game is off until 31st tomorrow is my last opportunity to see the boys before I depart and my first away game of the...

    Thoughts before next season!

    Its not often that I dont sleep at night but last night instead of slipping into a coma I found myself thinking about the start of next season. Normally I am filled with a tinge of optimism and excitement with regards to how we will do and are our new signings going to mirror "Ronaldo" or...
  18. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...
