    Lee Barnard to Stevenage (on loan)

    Just tweeted by Chris Phillips! Bizarre one, didn't see that coming!
  2. Set Pieces

    As someone rightly pointed out in another thread that we seem to lack a presence in the box for corners, I thought a new thread to cover set pieces should be discussed. This season in particular we don't seem to be a threat from them. Not just corners but free kicks and throw-ons. Without...

    Where is Brown?

    Brown hasn't turned up for press duty again and was supposed to be doing talk sport today and as far as I know didn't turn up! Late talks with Ron last night?

    If he didn't sign for Sheffield and he was interested, would you sign him?

    Adam Thompson

    May yet turn out to be the best of Brown's signings from last season and that's not something I ever expected to be typing. I must admit I didn't rate him as any more than squad filler last season and the thought of him being first choice centre-half this year filled me with trepidation. But...

    The funniest thing you have ever seen.

    Christmas eve 1986. I was walking down an absolutely rammed Southend high street behind a couple. The man was arguing with the woman and waving his arms around wildly. He was so preoccupied he didn't notice a huge pile of vomit on the pavement... As he stepped into it he lost traction and...
  8. Was this guy right in what he did?

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/relationships/fatherhood/11086456/Was-I-right-to-complain-about-my-daughters-teacher.html Was I right to complain about my daughter's teacher? Robert Francis complained about a teacher at his daughter's nursery because he didn't like the look of him. Rightly or...
  9. Did the players deserve to be booed at the end ?

    ..I certainly don't think so ! For me it wasn't for lack of effort and we didn't lose.
  10. why the over reaction from some ?

    some of our fans are so fickle what the hell is this over reaction about? Tomlin didnt start scoring straight away. It baffles me apparently we are in a crisis this early on in the season. IMO someones in for a spanking very soon and i very much enjoy going southend now more than i have for the...

    **** up in a brewery

    When will SUFC learn their lesson? Quite a few people hadn't had their Season cards delivered and had to get tickets printed for today and quite a few who's didn't work. How long have they had to get season cards sent out? I got to my seat to find they hadn't put the names on as promised...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United vs Walsall

    Post match thoughts and ratings Sufc v Walsall A good game of football played at good tempo against a side who kept the ball well with both sides looking to go out wide and counter. Smith. 5 I'm glad he is second choice as he should have done so much better tonight. Spilled an easy save and...
  13. Memory Lane John McKinven

    It is with deep sadness that I have heard of the death of former Shrimper John McKinven on July 25th.aged 73. He was one of my early hero's who joined Southend from Raith Rovers as an inside left. It was however when he switched to outside left that he became a real crowd favourite. His nickname...

    Greetings Southend United

    Hello all, How not to create the best impression - well here goes :facepalm:... I'm a West Ham United die hard, (fourth generation), season ticket holder for twenty years, plus countless away games. :omg: Currently going through a typically stressful and unnecessarily, long drawn out house...

    Most of you saw this last night, but for those that didn't, enjoy. English humour at it's best.

    In or out for the next game? The BBC guys had a brief debate about it, which if you didn't see it went something like Rio saying we should play him in his best position, Shearer saying that would be where Sturridge played and he scored, so Ferdinand says play him in the No 10 role, countered by...
  17. General World Cup thread

    I thought it was a good opener last night. Croatia looked a very strong team (Perisic is some player) and Brazil were lucky with a homer ref and some good finishing from Neymar and Oscar. They might struggle against teams who are strong in attack. Cesar and Luiz didn't play well and their full...

    World Cup kits through the ages

    Sorry to go all Barna on you boys and girls, but another nice piece of work by The Grauniad here. Quite a few inaccuracies - e.g. England's 1990 away shirt didn't have a white collar - but if you like the World Cup (I do) and football kits (I do) you'll like this (I do)...

    So, what's the chances of us having them first game of next season, and then having played them four times in a row? (I only watched the last 7 minutes of the match yesterday, but 2 things struck me. Firstly, Burton were trying to speed the game up by going to get the ball for Fleetwood...
  20. Once upon a time!

    Once upon a time English referees were looked upon as being the best in the world, but what i witnessed last night, i watched the SUFC - Burton game live via stream, and right from the kickoff the ref showed bias toward Burton, no this is not bad eggs becoz SUFC didnt get to the final, My...
