    Pre-Match Thread Oldham Athletic v Southend United

    Another game on the road in Greater Manchester tomorrow. Thoughts on team and scores?

    Details to follow in due course.
  4. Ref Watch ..... Oldham A

    We haven't lost a League match at Oldham for 20 years, our last such defeat coming in 1998 when Bruce Grobbelaar was in goal for them and the match was refereed by a promising young official, Mike Dean. A man with a good football name takes charge of tomorrow's match. It is David Webb, a 40...

    Theo Robinson and a Rare Southend United Visit

    So this weekend I made one of my rare visits to Roots Hall and brought my travel companion with me. She had never seen a live football match before and wasn't quite sure what to expect and if she'd like the experience. Her immediate impression was one of surprise in a good way. I said, "I just...

    Best And Worst

    Not many games left now. What a topsy-turvy season. Any nominations for best and worst home and away games? I am going to plump for Blackburn home and away as the best of the season.

    Dru Yearwood

    What a great first season he's had but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here... we've been here before with promising yoofs. Frank Moussa? Kane Ferdinand? Both had oodles of promise, never fulfilled it. But lets just say he is the "real deal". I don't think it'll be us that sells him...

    End of Season awards

    The survey is open to vote on the club website: https://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/2018/april/cast-your-vote-in-the-end-of-season-awards/ Ryan Leonard’s goal vs Bury the clear winner for goal of the season for me despite not being included on the list, presumably because they look a bit...

    What would it take?

    Slightly tangential but this does have a Southend United link (tenuous I know) ............. but I am quite interested in the level of enmity and animosity towards M.K. Dons that still continues. Like many people the whole episode that "allowed" Milton Keynes to "gain" a footing in the league...
  14. Ref Watch ..... MK Dons (Home)

    The man in charge of Saturday's match against Milton Keynes needs little introduction; he is Gavin Ward from Oxted in Surrey, whose many Southend games over the years can best be described as variable with a little more bad than good but marginally better of late. This will be his fourth...

    Sponsors Dinner last night

    A good evening at the Arlington Rooms, well done to the new Commercial team on their organisation. A very different regime to previous ones, players not allowed a drink - although I did see one or two having a glass of red! Saw a few Zoners and regular TZers there and had a chat with some of...

    SUEPA Event on Saturday v MK: Powell's Pals.

    Right, now there are a few good reasons to be at Roots Hall on Saturday. Helping to relegate MK and seeing SCP hopefully experiment a bit with players he wants to hold on to for the future are two reasons. But the main one, in case you are not yet aware, is that we are having our first big...

    Half Price footy

    I've just found out that if you take your Southend Utd season ticket along to watch Maldon & Tiptree FC you get half price admission. This is a good initiative to encourage local football fans watch other local matches , i wonder if any other clubs do this and why its not advertised. For...
