  1. Have we blown promotion already?

    Now, don't get me wrong, Luggy was brilliant last season after what he had to contend with when he came to the club. Also, the squad he had built up this term is extremely strong for this level and the away record this year has been very good also. However, I'm wondering as to whether he can...
  2. In The Good Old Days.

    We are so lucky nowadays. When I were a wee lad (You could buy a car for a pound, and still have change for some shiny shoes), You had to travel in some dodgy looking coach that would often get attacked (Once had a brick smash through the window just glancing my bonce) at the away ground or...

Now a season card holder in the west stand with my 2 lads. Impresed with - Clohessy & Belford Not impressed with - unable to string passes together -...

    Breaking News ...Literally - Dicko out for 4 months!

    As per a tweet from reporter James Harrod. He said he wouldn't play again this season - injury no-one's fault, just "one of those things".
  5. Ref Watch ....... Burton

    Tomorrow we have the experienced and normally very decent Mick Russell from St Albans. He is making his first appearance of the season after recovering from a long injury. A steady official, this will be his 11th Southend match and his 5th away from Roots Hall. His first two away matches...
  6. Dickinson's Role

    CP said something on the radio yesterday, he said that Dickinson is one of our most inconsistent players, on his day he can be brilliant, but on the other days he won't win anything all game, there is no middle ground with him. I agree with this 100%, I also think the people defending him when...

    TV Highlights Plymouth v Southend

    Chance to see whether you think Morris was at fault for their first, and Mohnsi very unlucky to see his header well saved. Link; http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01bsmlg/The_Football_League_Show_2011_2012_04_02_2012/ at about 1:14 or so

    Kalala - please no more

    Yesterday we were poor across the board and I would like to think this post is not a knee jerk reaction but the last month or so Kalala has been truly woeful. Please to god can we have Granty back who can do the defensive roll as well as JP and might actually have an ounce of creativity in his...

  12. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    Mirror mirror on the wall whose the daftest of them all?

    Listening to BBC Essex on the way back Luggy said all needed to think hard about their efforts tonight and that he himself would be taking a look in the mirror. Well, sorry Mr S, but despite my deep respect for what you have so far done for SUFC, if you take an honest look I think you will find...

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

  20. Ref Watch ...... Macclesfield again

    Tomorrow night we have the experienced and normally very decent Mick Russell from St Albans. If I were writing this 18 months ago, I'd be extolling his virtues, but of late things haven't gone quite so well. A steady official, this will be his 10th Southend match and his 6th at Roots Hall...
