  1. Hi everyone

    New member here. Moved to Essex for a spell from 1989 through 1998-ish and started following Southend United as my "local team" shortly thereafter. Went pretty regularly through the promotion seasons, driving to away games in a C-Reg Rover 216 with Jamie from Grays and Stuart "the postman"...

    10 years ago today

    Just got back from hols today and so not sure if it's been covered today but it's 10 years since our first trip to the millennium. It's been quite eventful since then on the field in comparison to the snails pace progress of our new stadium.

    The Last 12 months of the Prediction League

    In the brief pause between the World Cup and the start of the new season I thought it me worth a quick review of the last eventful twelve months and gave praise again to the winners. It was a year ago that the Prediction League was split into four sessions each one of about 13 matches. First...
  5. Barry says most eventful.

  6. Ref Watch ...... Cheltenham Home

    Tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle based at RAF High Wycombe. His last visit to the Hall was co-incidentally against Cheltenham when he was good enough to send off one of theirs in our 4-0 win. A repeat would be good...

    Southend United get out of a jam with victory against Mansfield Town

    SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown was in a jam when two of his players failed to make it in time to take on Mansfield Town at Roots Hall on Friday night. But the Shrimpers chief felt the enforced changes worked in his side’s favour as they convincingly saw off the Stags 3-0 in an eventful...

    Southend United 3, Mansfield Town 0

    SOUTHEND United got back to winning ways with an eventful 3-0 triumph against Mansfield Town at Roots Hall tonight. More...
  9. Poetry Corner - Bilel Mohsni.

    As Bilel Moshni leaves after an eventful few years - I have swifly written my own interpretation of his time at SUFC. I have tried to make it as balanced as possible. Mohsni left the blues today, His services no longer required, We've let him go on a freebie, Cos his contract has expired...
  10. Ref Watch ........ Kettle at Aldershot

    As we look to end a winless run in the League against Aldershot which stretches back 23 years (when we did the double over them 5-0 both home and away (Dave Crown got 5 of the 10 goals)), tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle...
  11. Ref Watch ....... Wycombe (A)

    Tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle based at RAF High Wycombe (!). This is his 10th season as a League referee and his matches have been littered with controversy and condemnation throughout. I am sure there is not the...

    Potentially our greatest season?

    IF we managed to win the JPT at wembley and get to play chelski at home coupled with promotion , would that constitute our best ever season? Its like a bizzare treble of promotion jpt and big cup draw and they dont come bigger than the european champions. Obviously the flip side is we lost to...
  13. Ref Watch .... Magic of the Cup Refwatch

    Man in charge of our 1,500th game at Roots Hall is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his fourteenth Southend match in charge...

    Home is where the hurt is for Southend United

    TO say Southend United’s 0-0 draw with York City was uneventful would arguably be the biggest understatement of the season so far. More...

    Just when we can do without any suspensions, they send Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his thirteenth Southend match in...

    Take Me Out To The Ballgame: MLB 2012 Thread

    It's Opening Day today, so high time for a 2012 thread for the select band of baseball fans on SZ. It's been a pretty eventful close season for my Cubs, the biggest signings all being off the field. Out went manager Mike Quade & GM Jim Hendry and in came Theo Epstein (the man that ended...
  18. Ref Watch Kettlewatch ...... Cheltenham at home

    Tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle based at RAF High Wycombe. This is his 9th season as a League referee and his matches have been littered with controversy and condemnation throughout. I am sure there is not the...
  19. Ref Watch ...... Rotherham

    Weather and pitch permitting, the man in charge tomorrow evening is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 8th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. He did absolutely no games at all the season before last which would...

This is his 9th season as a League referee and his matches have been littered with controversy and condemnation throughout. I am sure...
