    OD- week 1

    against one of the usual rivals... switched my usual bowling tactics and opened with spin (Barnes being rested after his heroic exploits in FC this week). Paying off handsomely so far, with Cairns ripping through their top-order on very attacking... End of Over 6: 13-4, runrate=2.17 Cairns...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Spencer Prior

    Four places (I think) left to fill and next up is Spencer Prior, albeit a day late in Ron Martin style. -------------------------------------------------- Separated by over a decade, Spencer Prior had two very different careers with Southend. Either would be sufficient to get him in the Hall of...

    Memory Lane Special Report on SUFC's previous homes

    Nice piece from the Echo's site today (I know there's no paper today), could have gone in the other forum I guess, but thought it kind of went alongside the Hall of Fame stuff we've been doing. Sing the Blues for stadiums past 12:10am Saturday 30th May 2009 Comments (0) Have your say » By...

    Barry Conlon

    Has been shown the door at Bradford. I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign for Grimsby after his goal scoring exploits at the end of the season.

    Top 10 games this season

    I thought Liverpool v Arsenal was more thrilling than the Chelsea v Liverpool game and would have like to have seen a certain Chelsea 1-1 Southend in there too... I shall dream on

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Sansome

    Ah-oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, its Sammy! Yep, first up from the 4th round of nominations is popular goalkeeper Paul Sansome. If Sammy is elected, he'll become the third individual from the double promotion era to be elected, following in the footsteps of his manager Dave...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 4th round of nominations

    It's time for the fourth round of nominations. Rules and guidelines are here. Basically each poster gets one nomination per round, so use your nomination wisely, and individuals need five nominations to go forward to a ballot. So far Chris Powell, Sid Broomfield, Stan Collymore, Ron Pountney...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Alan Moody

    Next up for nomination is Alan Moody. The last two nominees, David Crown and Ricky Otto look unlikely to make it into the Hall of Fame (at least on the first ballot), probably because their glittering Southend career's were deemed too short. That is unlikely to keep Alan Moody out. In fact it...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ricky Otto

    Next up for election to the Hall of Fame is Ricky Otto. Ricky Otto had it all: skill, flair and funny looking hair. He was signed by B****y F*y for £100,000, a fee that seems suspiciously high for a Leyton Orient reserve. I won't make any libellous suggestions about brown envelopes...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney

    There are many ways to measure greatness: appearances, medals, honours, popularity. Well Ron Pountney sits third in the all-time appearance list, was an integral part of the club's first major title (Division 4, 1980-81) and won the player of the year award a record three times. Ronnie...

    Luiz Felipe Scolari

    Every managerial appointment at every football club in the world carries a certain amount of risk, but the decision to bring in Luiz Felipe Scolari as the new manager of Chelsea is like pouring petrol over a smouldering barbeque. On the face of it, it's a great way to get the fire burning again...

    The Freddy Eastwood, Wolves Situation...

    Now i know we have a thread in the ex-shrimpers for Freddy, but i thought it would be easier to start a new one to shed some light on Fred's situation up there. Here is some info i have just got on a Wolves messageboard after posting a thread... This is my post; Hi. Southend fan here...

    United ease through

    Manchester United, eliminated from the Champions League by an Italian side last season, have clearly leaned their lesson well, for this was a victory copied straight out of the Serie A handbook. There were no wanton flourishes, no unnecessary garnish, this was just cold, merciless football and...

    Pops (or lack thereof)

    Hoped Sutherland would move this week, but it looks like I'll have to wait another week. A few handy movements though: Rod Curtis - 20 yo, BT Rating=25,838 RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, energetic A steady player with mediocre leadership skills and feeble...

  19. Creativity and changing the game

    At the moment we are really struggling to create any chances. Our main source of creativity is Freddy ghosting past defenders. The trouble is opponents have cottoned onto the fact that he is the dangerman are are just crowding him out. Freddy is having to beat three men to even get in a...
