    Elvis or Dimi ?

    I've been so impresed with Elvis since he broke through with Phil Brown. He's a real SCP kind of player too, fantastic mobility, seems his attitude is good, has real pace and covers his centre backs intelligently. A ball winner that doesnt sell himself, whereas as much as i like Jason Dimi he...

    Question Who's going to be better - jack or jack ?

    3 Years ago i watched a few games in which both Jack Payne and Jack Bridge were playing. I said to mates at the time the better player was Bridge. I likened him to Adam Lallana and bet them that in 5 years time Bridge would be playing at a higher standard of football than Payne. Now my...

    Zone Update TZ TravelZone

    A few years ago when Wino (Paul) was with SOL (an old SUFC forum) he approached us with the idea of joining forces on The Zone and taking his idea about away travel and ours of wanting a Zone supporters coach service forward. It is quite staggering how far TZ has grown since those days...From 1...

    FA cup TV scheduling

    So I looked to see what game the BBC will be showing today and was surprised to see no live games on terrestrial television. I then went to the FA site and it was confirmed that the live games this weekend are: First Round Proper - live ties Friday 7 November – 7.55pm Warrington Town v...
  7. Ref Watch ........... Exeter H

    Tomorrow's referee needs little introduction; he is the youthful looking Gavin Ward from Oxted in Surrey. His three most recent Southend matches were definitely some of his better ones, taking charge of the entertaining home 0-0 with Port Vale early last season with 1 caution to us (Tomlin) and...
  8. Ref Watch ......... Hull Cup 4th round

    The referee for Saturday's big match is Lee Mason from Bolton (which is, of course, in Greater Manchester as Brendan Rodgers reminds everyone each time he referees Liverpool v a Manchester team - well not each time actually - only when Liverpool lose!). A Select Group referee since 2006, he is...

    What do you feel is sufc's future?

    I have been thinking about the club this week and all the things that used to attract me to it and it really saddens me to see the club being run so poorly and for the fans to be so disillusioned and distanced from the club they love. I just think the club is quite literally on its knees and it...

    Kyle Asante

    The diminutive striker has joined Southern League Premier Division club St Neots Town. The report says he has moved from Barnet but I can't find anything that suggests he ever signed for the Bees, though he did play as a trialist in a match against Swansea U21s in October.

    Southend in the Observer yesterday

    Sunder Katwala posts an interesting article on racism. We get a nice mention My scouse accent, though, was diminishing, having moved to Essex in my teenage years. Adopting a second team in Southend United, standing behind the goal, I saw racial abuse of a Wolves player directly challenged as...

  15. Ref Watch ........ Oxford

    Man in charge on Tuesday night is Keith Hill from Hertfordshire. He was the FA's Regional Referees Manager for the East of England. Does that mean he is a top official? I'm afraid not. He has been refereeing since he was fourteen. Promoted to the National List of Assistant referees in 1994 and...

    Don't Make A Whipping Boy Of Green

    Even as I type these words, I can hear the scraping of a thousand knives being hastily sharpened in the offices of England’s national newspapers. By the time I’ve hit ‘send’ on my email, be assured that this country’s sports editors will have plunged them all into Rob Green’s back. Football can...
