    How to not get done for speeding!

    SAVE YOUR DRIVING LICENCE AVOIDING THE SPEEDING TICKET What must the officer do, and what should you do When you are being reported for speeding, the Police Officer must tell you: "That you will be reported for consideration of the question of prosecuting you for exceeding the speed limit."...

    Good Post Mortem of our season

    Borrowed this from the yahoo list (with the original authors permission). This guy used to contribute to the SUFC fanzines in the 90's. ps: Didn't realise the Railway was showing the West Ham game on Saturday!!!! ------------ This was probably my sixth/seventh relegation so, as well as...

    The Luton Game On Saturday

    Yet again we concede three goals, and at home! Simply not good enough if you ask me. When was the last good match at home? Luton were already down and from the off you could tell they wanted it more than us. Compare Kevin Blackwell to Tilly. Blackwell on his feet encouraging his players...

    Public displays of affection.

    Had a "Networking" night last night at Walthamstow dogs where basically you go out and meet loads of other people in similar lines of work and chat about how you might be able to help each other etc. In truth its just an organised **** up. Woke up this morning feeling rough which i think was...
  5. The Nightmare Scenario.....

    We stay up with Tilly and Brush - and Freddy signs a new contract. We start next season with a string of comfortable wins as our battle hardened championship squad displays its new found confidence. By Christmas we are 5 points clear at the top of the table and receiving blanket media coverage...
  6. Simon Francis - much improved

    Was this really THE Simon Francis today. Much, much, much improved on previous displays, kept his concentration and for me a contender for MOM. Keep it up :D
  7. Just got back...

    So another week another defeat and another 3 goals conceded. Today however I truly belive the best side lost. We started brightly enough creating chances and generally bossing wolves around. However after a mad 10 minutes and some of the worst goalkeeping i have ever seen from Flavs we find...
  8. No Desire, No Movement, No Skill!

    I know people don't like these sort of posts, but I'm fuming after getting back from one of the most depressing displays I have ever seen. I haven't read other posts so I'm sure there are other posts of similar nature. The players simply had no desire to win today against a below average side...

    Plus points

    After a longer than normal journey home today I had a bit of a dwell on the game. Trying to shy away from getting to worked up about what I perhaps feel about certain things today, as no doubt I'll get told I'm wrong, I looked for some positives. 1. I thought Paynter looked a different...

    Absolutely disgraceful

    I have managed to somehow refrain from posting hours after the final whistle in previous weeks, purely because I felt the need to try and sit back and evaluate what I had just witnessed before saying things which werent necessary, but no more. What I witnessed this afternoon was one of the most...

    Seafront Firewroks

    Now before i get on my high horse, i will point out that in normal circumstances i find firewroks quite pleasant, and that one guy Fawkes, new Year, The Southend Carnival they have a nice purpose... However, who ever decided that having them every saturday night for 15 mins at about 8.30 up...
  12. Sit Down

    Plenty as been said on the other thread about 'Ricketts-Gate' and I don't wish to add to that particular debate. However the trouble we have at Roots Hall at the moment is a real crackdown on any displays of passionate support. I was singled out and warned by a steward that I'd...
  13. Your Guide to Port Vale

    Hello all- i'm sure you lot are looking forward to the new season with anticipation.  I know we are after a very positve pre season.  We are pretty confident that we can threaten the top 6 after last years injury-ravaged disaster of a campaign.  Congratulations on your promotion and i hope you...

    Eastwood

    Taken from This Is Essex Website.. SOUTHEND United striker Freddy Eastwood has again expressed his desire to stay with the Shrimpers - but admits his future is in the hands of the Roots Hall hierachy. The 21-year-old forward starred for the Seasiders last season, banging home 24 goals to fire...

    Well Done To Bart!

    Congratulations must go to our keeper Bart Griemink for scooping the latest monthly PFA League two player of the month. Well done Bart, keep up the good work! UP THE BLUES! Belated congratulation also to Super Cheese Wilson on scooping the SUFCSC player of the month award with some...

    The fbm view and ratings

    Saturday August 24 1996 was one of my most depressing days as a Blues supporter since 1969. We were unceremoniously thumped 5-0 at Oxford's Manor Ground in what was one of the most uncommitted and pathetic displays I have ever seen from a Southend team. Fences were still up and I think the...
  18. The FBM view & Ratings

    Just got in from the game. Reasonable battling team performance, let down by some bad individual displays. As you are probably aware, Jimmeh started on the right and Eastwood up top - no Bramble on the bench?! Flavs back between the sticks... Very dull and scrappy first half until pretty...
  19. ROCHDALE AWAY

    Lets have a look at things yesterday. I wasted my whole day and a lot of money to go and watch a team who put in a performance that can only be described as complete and utter sh*t! We lost 2-0. I wouldnt be as upset if we lost and showed fight but be didnt show a single thing. NO...
