    Official Match Thread Southend United vs Walsall FC

    So here we are the fourth home game of Chris Powell's return and time in charge at the Mighty Shrimpers. Can Chris continue his starting 5 game unbeaten run as Southend United Manager? It is now time for ALL of us to get behind him and the team whether you are at Roots Hall, listening on the...

    Goal scoring Full Back

    As there has been comparison between Jason Demitriou and Jimmy Evans I thought it might be worth explaining a bit about Jimmy Evans. Monday 13th October 1919 Mid Rhonda 0-0 Southend United A guarantee match was played in Wales against Mid Rhonda at Tonypandy in front of a large crowd...

    Attendances in a New Stadium

    I was interested in the discussion on another thread about what effect a new stadium could have on our clubs home attendances. So I thought I would check to see what difference it made to our attendances when we switched from the Greyhound Granger Road Stadium to Roots Hall in 1955. Season...

    Memory Lane MANSFIELD our first meeting

    For all you history freaks (yes both of you) here's a little recap of our first meeting with Mansfield over 80 years ago. Eight goals on Good Friday? Saturday 7th November 1931 MANSFIELD TOWN 4-4 SOUTHEND UNITED Mansfield had been applying for election to Division 3 (North) for some time and...
  9. Hi there

    I'm new on here but you probably guessed that anyway. I started going to Southend back in 1974/75. The 1975/76 season was my first full season and we got relegated but I didn't let that put me off. Dave Smith took over for the 1976/77 season and I went to most of those home games too. The...
  10. Division 1 North and South

    Because of the old photo's thread, I discovered that when Southend played their first game at Roots Hall in 1955, they were in Division 3 South. There was 4 Divisions, 1, 2, 3 North and 3 South. Now because of rising debt and with a few clubs struggling to survive in the 2 lower Leagues, do you...
  11. All Time League 2/Division 3 Table

    Having been exploring the world of stats, I came across the all-time League Two/Division 3 table. Hopefully I don't get much stick for this! :unsure: No surprises, Rochdale are top, having played 2172 matches at this level, winning 724, drawing 613 and losing 835. They have scored a total of...
  12. Dan Bentley- new career as a lineman

    I got the below email from a friend yesterday , thought it might be of interest . Made me smile and it acts a reminder that our players have 'normal' lives as well. Rightly or wrongly I cant see a premiership starlet doing this My brothers team (Sky Athletic) won 2-0 v Eversley Sports (who...

    Femi Orenuga

    Now playing for AFC United in the Swedish Division 3, which I believe is semi-pro. My oh my, what on earth went so wrong for the boy? I do hope that stories of Medi Abalimba and Femi Orenuga will encourage more of our promising youngsters to take a leaf out of Moussa and Ferdinand's book and...

    Funny old game, isn't it?

    As our club becomes the centre of league 2 attention yet again in one of the most bizarre stories ever (club appoints new manager but allows old one to manage us 2 weeks later in a cup final) I have been thinking about the game, the situation and my feelings exactly when I saw the news that...
  15. Ref Watch ..... Barnet home

    Tomorrow we have a referee we have never lost with. Man in charge will be third year referee Brendan Malone from Salisbury refereeing his sixth Southend match. His most recent Southend game was last season's inevitable win at Hereford. Prior to that it was last season's home match against an...

    What about defenders?

    I know it is a little more exciting to talk about strikers but keeping a clean sheet is just as important - if we hadn't let in the last minute goal against Accers we would be in division 3 etcetera....... If we sign Hills then I am happy with left back and right back (and cover with Gilbert...

    How does our excellent start to this season match up to past successful seasons?

    OK, so, after 18 games played in the league, our excellent record reads like this: 1st P19 W13 D2 L3 F36 A17 GD+19 PTS41 Whilst our promotion seasons in 2004/2005 and 2005/2006 ended superbly, I was pretty sure that they didn't start this well. I was right...
  18. Memory Lane How the Hell Did We Win That? (League Games Only)

    Couldn't sleep last night and my mind started drifting back. I started thinking about Southend performances that just shouldn't have happened. Who else has not gone to a game knowing full well there is absolutely no chance of us getting a result, then heard the score and found out we have defied...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Dave Smith (2nd ballot)

    Up for election to the SZ Southend United Hall of Fame is manager Dave Smith. Smith came incredibly close last time, missing out by just 0.26%. Will he fare better at his second attempt? Here's what I wrote last time: ---------------------------------------------------- This poll is really a...

    Memory Lane SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ian Benjamin

    It's the answer to the most famous question in Southend United history: who put the ball in the Bury net? And as every Southend fan will gleefully tell you: Ian Benjamin, Ian Benjamin. Now this poll's been a long time coming*, but in some ways that's apt. *He received the required nominations...
