    Memory Lane Best Atmospheres #2 - SUFC V Brizzle City and Goat's last game.

    6th May 2006. Jeez how time passes !!! I'd forgotten how close to the end Gray's goal was but this was a party atmosphere given the Man City fans that made the trip, the reception from the Br City fans and the promotion, title and farewell party. Awesome day. Completely different to Memory #1...
  2. Now I've been thinking......

    my younger brother (14 years old) wants to start coming football with me. We are Spurs fans and I simply cannot afford two people going to Premier League matches week in week out, and suggested that we look at localish football teams. Southend, Dagenham and Orient being the options....... Orient...

    Player Sponsorship 2011/12 - Sean Clohessy

    Just want to say a massive thanks to Susannah at the Club, and Sean for a most enjoyable visit to B&L today. Also to the organisers of SZ's sponsorship of Sean for drawing my ticket out. All worked out very nicely, watched training (Prosser didn't take part so can only assume he's not going to...

    Manager/Coach Required for U7 Team

    Chaps, Southend Manor urgently require a coach/manager to take on their U7's side, ready for next season. Is anyone interested in this position?? You would need to be available to take training sessions on Sat morning and of course, take charge of the matches every other Sunday. Which are only...

    Ultimate Roast Dinner Meat?

    The family and I went to our friends for Sunday roast today. Said friends wife is Canadian and as such she hasn't done a lot of roasts. However she has done her research and she delivered a very enjoyable pork roast. Pork for my mind is the ultimate roast meat as I love it plus you get the...

    Fair play to everyone last night. even though with only 3.5k attendance thats the bets atmosphere at the hall this season hands down. obviously it helped with the goals flying in but was great to see the south getting involved and even the east had a go. credit to smiffy and tbv, moving to the...

    Captains Blog Part 2

    EAST ON.... I know this is supposed to be a light-hearted column so I’ll get Saturday’s defeat against Morecombe out of the way first. What can I say, we’re all gutted with the result and the way we lost the three goals in a game where we once again had most of the play. When we equalised at...
  12. A bit of perspective?

    First things first: Saturday's game was not the worst game of football I've ever seen. It wasn't enjoyable to watch as a Southend fan, but then who does enjoy watching their team lose? The answer: most Southend fans? Gives us something to moan about doesn't it? Realistically anyone who thought...

    Paul Sturrock Can do No Wrong!

    ..... Well he can't can he? If it's not doing a great job to keep one player satisfied (Granty), or showing great determination to get stuck into a sticky project, or his ability to bring in a whole new team of signings, or his ability to show he has thought of using one extra formation, then I...

Might...

    Question Worst Loanee ever?

    After a enjoyable debate with our six fingered friend it got me thinking about the worst player we have ever had on loan. There are so many candidates but for me its Danny Marney. Not sure how many of you will remember him as he was a totally forgetable part of an appauling Buzz Lightyear side...

    Southend United FC by Far the greatest team the World has ever seen

    30 years i have supported the greatest team in the world, and its never dull, we have more lows than we do highs but that's what supporting the Shrimpers is all about. Otherwise we would be gooners, mancs or Yids (excluding LdNFasto, who is one). Yep relegation is ****, but we have done it...

    Support today

    Just wanted to say to everyone who went today a big well done. After a dissappointing result it would have been easy to turn on the players early on in the second half but instead we cheered all half long. It made the game as lot more enjoyable and although we lost you could see at the end the...
