    Junior Blues Player of the Year votes

    Please, if you haven't already done so, encourage your JB youngsters to cast their vote. One of those voting will be invited to present the award! http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/junior-blues-poty-2016-3046985.aspx And if they're not already members, then get them signed up...
  4. young players

    Fans please give the young players plenty of support. They are going to make some mistakes as they are still learning the game, only hope they learn from them. Getting on their backs will not help them or the team. I know its every fans right to shout what they think but please encourage them if...
  5. Online ticketing

    Just noticed that tickets for all of the first four home league matches this season are now available for sale online. I thought I remembered that last season the club could only sell in advance this way two league matches at a time. If that ever really was a problem then it seems it's been...

    Junior Blues Player of the Year vote

    I hope the mods will allow this in the main Shrimpers' forum....trying to push for lots of our Junior Blues to have their say on Player of the Year. This award will be presented at the Trust's end of year Awards night on Wednesday 30th April. If you have young people in your family who are...
  7. Bluuuueee Arrrrmmmmy v Hull !!!

    Can I suggest we encourage everybody to wear blue on Saturday (as opposed to wearing our away shirt - for obvious reasons). It would be fantastic for our lads to see three sides of the stadium covered in a sea of blue as they enter the field of play. ...and to all the youngsters out there...

    Junior Blues Christmas Party

    Don't know how many of you will have seen this on the OS, or how many sons and daughters/grandchildren of SZ members might have come along, but we held our Junior Blues Christmas Party at the Kursaal Bowl on Monday evening. We had over 40 children there, and they all seemed to have a great time...
  9. Volunteers Wanted for help with leaflets

    SUISA are assisting the club by promoting the York £5 game. We have leaflets to hand out at stations and shops to encourage people to attend the game and could do with a few more people to assist. Any volunteers ?

    Roots Hall "Home" Competition the PLAN

    Some may rememebr the "Home International Tournement" when England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales competed against each other during the season on a League basis to decide who was the top nation. The Roots Hall "Home" Competion is planned on similar lines. We have the East Stand, North Bank...

    Celebrity top trumps

    I 've just come back from holiday in Turkey & 2 (sort of) semi famous people were staying at the same place for the same week. I got beaten in the table tennis final by Burnley + Welsh Int'l Brian Stock ...( although he did admit he has his own table tennis table in his triple garage at...
  12. From SUFC

    Just copied this from the Official Site. If you are approached anywhere but the "Family Areas" by the stewards with regards to swearing then refer them to Mr G King. "Southend United have signed up to the Football League's 'Enjoy the Match' campaign this season. The Football League is...
  13. Further evidence of Col Utd idiots

    I've never been one to indulge in the "inbred", "carrot crunching A12 *****" abuse that's sometimes dished out on here. But I must come on and report some very unsavoury behaviour from two of our friends from Cuckoo Farm, at the Chelmsford Beer Festival on Saturday night. Noticing dark clouds...

    credit Crunch - will our average gate increase or decrease next year ??

    I could see the 'hard times' working in our favour with people deserting the London clubs in their droves and taking the kids to a live game at the Hall instead . With petrol prices the away support will be down but again it may encourage the locals who travel to watch the ' big clubs ' to...

    Housekeeping Guide - 1955 Style

    Advice from 'Housekeeping Weekly' in 1955. These were the days. Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are...
  16. Blue Voice - Playoff Semi Home Leg

    Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere (probably) but which block of the west has been allocated for TBV for this game? I think its crucial that we get as many singers over to this area for this game coz the lads are gonna need us to encourage them no matter what over both games to ensure...

    Carlisle Away

    I think now is the time to encourage as many Blues supporters to make the trek to Carlisle. Firstly, We are currently in the Playoff positions and at a push may get 2nd place and every point is now crucial and the team need as many people behind them as possible. Secondly, this is a big game...

    Tilly, Transfers and the sqaud.

    Alot had been said about Tilson with some sections of the support doubting his ability. But this Transfer market, along with the support of Brush and Ron (Pat on the back for the financial support) has shown how shrewd a man Steve can be. The signings of Masters, Scannell, Barnard and Revell...
  19. Can Southend follow Swansea's lead

    Not sure if there has been a thread on this but on SSN they were just talking to the Swansea Manager Roberto Martinez about an initiative that Swansea have brought in to encourage more of the youngsters to go along to the Liberty Stadium. They are kicking of at 7pm instead of 7:45pm and also...
