  1. The Eternal Optimist

    Breaking News Group 4 Security Van spotted outside Southend Utd main reception

    I think the war chest has arrived and Ron has been seen sporting his sheepskin coat and flat cap in anticipation of smashing the club record with a marquee signing that is more of a "jaw drop" or a "OMG Jesus F*cking H Christ no?" than a "wow". Putting 2 and 2 together, I reckon Jonny Evans or...

Not overly impressed myself but as long as it works it will do me. I notice that Sue Page is shown as a contact for the Commercial Department. Has she...

    Need an Essex Play-Off Fix?

    OK, so we didn't quite get there. But it seems too soon for the season to end. So, what to do? There is an antidote to anyone still with live footie needs in an Essex play-off situation (and I certainly don't mean Cole Ewe if they somehow manage it) Your medicine can be taken at Chelmsford...

    If SUFC ever moved , Whats too far ?

Over the years A number of clubs have made moves of significant distance, out of the town etc, whether its temporary or permanent. Wimbledon to MK, Arsenal from South of the River to North, Millwall North of...

    Essex FA

    The U14 football team my son plays for had a game abandoned by the ref in late November 8 minutes before the end of the game because the opposition manger threatened the ref and the ref wasn't going to accept being threatened. We all heard the manager threaten the ref so we know it happened...

  14. Michael Barrymore suing Essex Police

    I see that Barrymore is claiming £2.5m form Essex police for wrongful arrest after Stuart Lubbock was found dead in is pool (allegedly) Can't see why the police were remotely suspicious. I mean just because the homeowner and two of his friends bundle up some items and do a runner as the...
