  1. An entertaining view from Pompey fans.

    This is the best video of away fans day out in Southend. They like our 'Serious Pier.' Some funny moments, definitely worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfzhR7Xj2YE

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Peterborough United

    Very entertaining game which could really have gone either way. Can't help but feel that they were there for the taking and they'll likely feel the same. Slow start but could have put the game to bed, poor defending for their goal after a wrong call by the ref on the throw-in and we seemed to...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-1 Blackpool

    What an end to an entertaining game! Blackpool were better than Wimbledon and we rode our luck at times again, but Cox playing further forward was much improved and got him his goal and we never gave up. Some were flagging towards the end but that's to be expected given how recently they've come...

    Was this season a success?

    It's been a real rollercoaster of a season and certainly been entertaining enough. A shame that it came to an end in this way, but could certainly have been worse after the first month/6 weeks of the season. Back in July, 18% said we'd make the play-offs, 32% were correct with top half and 21%...
  5. Old Shrimper

    Hi all, Thought I would join to hear news and opinions of other supporters. I like some of the historic comments and pictures of times past. I first starting watching the Blues in 1951 when the club played at Grainger Road stadium, travelling there on a saddle on my Dad's crossbar and then...

    SZ Player of the Season 2015-16

    As mentioned elsewhere, it seems there will be no player of the season presentation at our final home game on Saturday, and it will instead be at the end of season gala dinner. So who gets your vote? For me, it's got to be Jack Payne. The most entertaining player by a mile this season, and has...

    The World is Flat

    Watched The Martian today and loved it, read the book which was a bit meh but the film far more entertaining. That led me to have a look at NASA's facebook page and all fascinating stuff about what they are doing to get to Mars. What I also found was bewildering though. There are a lot of...
  8. Article needed - someone who travelled away regularly 1996-1998 and now

    Hi all, I'm trying to fill the latest issue of AAS (deadline Sunday, eek) and I had an idea for an article this afternoon which I'll need someone else to write. I'd love to get a piece from someone who travelled away on a regular basis during the two seasons 1996-1998. During this period, we...

    Most entertaining eleven!

    Ignore their footballing ability - or possibly more importantly lack of - which eleven gave you most entertainment? I nominate; Shirt number 1. Mel Capleton - the only 'keeper I have ever seen make a diving header 25 yards from his own goal Shirt number 6. Who else but Bilel Mohsni? feel...

    FA Sunday cup- Priory Sports FC

    Thought i'd put a quick post on here as my sunday club are the only Essex side left in the FA sunday cup. This is a great competition and the football is very entertaining. At Priory we have a good few players that have been at Southend Utd at some point in their youth careers. Players people...
  12. Kevin Hogg

    Going against popular opinion.

    EVERYBODY (including me) has been crying out for the pace, energy and enthusiasm of youth in the England team. 2012 we looked completely out of ideas and just managed to grind results before losing on penalties to a team that destroyed us..but drew the game. Since yesterday morning all the...

    How long can Southend United keep Daniel Bentley's form a secret?

    SOUTHEND United continued their charge up the League Two table with a convincing and commanding 3-0 win against promotion rivals Chesterfield in another entertaining encounter at Roots Hall on Saturday. More...
  15. Attending Games: Entertaining football Vs. Results

    After the thread about booing Sturrock, I've been thinking, what do people prefer, honestly? I wasn't a massive fan of Sturrock, but had & still have a lot of respect for the man. He worked a minor miracle. But that doesn't take away from the fact, he's brand of football was absolutely dire...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs York City

    Well, after seemingly weeks of debating ticket sales, the game is nearly upon us so I thought it was time to start a pre-match thread. I am assuming there are no more injuries, and I suspect the main decision for Phil Brown is whether or not to recall BBBC (who I assume is over his illness now)...
  17. Ref Watch ........... Dagenham Paint Pot Round 2

    Tomorrow's referee needs little introduction; he is the youthful looking Gavin Ward from Oxted in Surrey. His two most recent Southend matches were a couple of his better ones, taking charge of the entertaining home 0-0 with Port Vale early last season with 1 caution to us (Tomlin) and 2 to...
  18. How do you encourage your child to become a Shrimper?

    I often see threads posted after a birth of a son/daughter stating that another Shrimper is born. Whilst this is fantastic I wonder how many actualy end up supporting Southend and is the a way to encourage your child to support Southend. I am interested as I have two children a daughter who...

    Spanish cycling tour

    My wife and I were greatly inconvenienced by the first day of the Spanish tour, starting in Galicia recently. How about letting motorists know in advance that they're likely to be delayed by a bunch of prima donnas poncing about on bikes? Signs of detours would help too. Who on earth can find...

    to all those fans that watched us at Wembley

    ..i'm not aiming this at fans that are still watching us, but those who supported us at Wembley but haven't seen us since. Dear all, I'd like to say a big thank you for helping us generate a huge travelling support for one of the clubs biggest games in our history. As you are probably aware...
