    3rd Test

    Well, that's the series gone, then. Huge credit to Yousuf - a fabulous knock, and he truly is back to his best. 163 n.o., ably supported by Kamran Akmal with 81 n.o.... and with Inzy supposedly padded up in the pavillion, his wrist having recovered from a bruising encounter with Steve...
  2. Swansea Preview

    If you are counting in months then it was just over a bakers ago that the Swans were beaten 4-2 at Roots Hall in what was a League Two encounter and it's been all uphill for both sides since then as they look towards a second successive promotion each. And as 1500 Jacks prepare to take the...
  3. A phone call of......

    My good friend from up north, Scaborough Stu phoned me yesterday to congratulate us on breaking our 81 year old record! He said to pass on his kind words to all Shrimpers (as he always acknowledge's us) and wishes for our run to continue Bieng impressed with what he has seen and heard of our...

    Who's planning on a visit to the chatroom for today's encounter?
  5. Bradford fan here, predictions for Tuesday

    Bradford fan here   Just came for some friendly football chat before our encounter on Tuesday.  I gather you didnt play too well against Port Vale but i would not read too much into it.  In this division unless you are a cut above the rest everybody can beat everybody.  Last year only Luton...

    Chav Town

    Prompted by another poster, here it is : "That Chav hasn't originated in Southend comes as a great shock to me. The town has a feature the chavster finds irresistable, a 'seafront'. That this doesn't actually front the sea, but rather the estuary of the moving cesspool that...
  8. The Times today

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but some interesting stuff in todays Times: Paul Connolly starts by being "mildy amused" at being approached by a tout offering to buy, or to sell him a ticket for £110 - anyone get a ticket from such a source? Describes the crowd as "bellowing for...

    The fbm review and ratings

    A TALE OF TWO ERRORS AS FREDDY EQUALS RECORD Freddy Eastwood equalled the Southend scoring in consecutive matches record by hitting the net for the 7th game running as this league 2 encounter hinged on two errors in the first half at the Hall on this Good Friday. So often form goes out of...
  11. The General


    The 2-2 encounter f**ked up most people's predictions ... Only Sheffield Shrimper got full points whilst the likes of myself and a few other souls predicted a 1-1 draw which gained them 50 points. Most had Freddy to score so most people picked up 30 points so there's no real movement...

    Which message board?

    Since the collapse of the SZ forum last week and the subsequent 4 day absence, two other boards popped up to serve the sufc gossipmongers who need their daily fix of Blues related news. Having three boards is too much. We really want just the one. I've posted this on all three boards so...

    I hope my worst fears on weds night dont come true .First that we will lose this match .Second and most importantly is that this encounter will be a bone jarring encounter and we end up with some walking wounded that will miss our more important leauge games .Oh I hope im wrong and we turn them...
