    Four Four Two - September Issue

    Just got my Sept issue of 442 this morning in the post. The usual season preview is in there and as per usual we're pretty much ignored when it comes to predicted finishes (they have us down as finishing just outside the playoffs in 9th while the Setanta expert thinks we'll finish 6th (Swansea...
  2. Cash windfall

    Reports about windfall from PL to league clubs. Clubs in the second tier of English football will receive an extra £11.2m next season because Sunderland and Birmingham, who made an instant return to the Premier League, will no longer receive parachute payments. That leaves West Brom...

    The fbm view and ratings - Canvey

    CANVEY HIT FOR SIX IN PARK LANE TURKEY SHOOT Southend continued their impressive scoring run in one of the most one sided games I have ever seen... and to be honest the disappointment is that Southend could have easily been well into double figures. Tilson played moreorless two different...

    Striker pecking order

    Having just read the thread regarding Paynter staying and fighting for his place , it had me wondering what the pecking order of our strikers would be and if any will be getting sold or pi88ed off sitting on the bench week in week out, for me in order it is Mcdonald= only seen glimpses of the...

    SZ BT Cup - Groups and Fixtures

    Now up on Alliance sledging if you want to take a look. First matches 24th June. If you're still in the cup you will have to forfeit your first game. If you're still in the cup after that you're doing bloody well!! Hope everyone is happy with the groupings, have tried to keep it as even as...

    Pride & Style

    I was born in Southend and love the place and the foofball club. I don't know why, I can't explain I just do. I started watching Blues in the early 60s, boring stuff really not the passion of today, nobody beleived we would go above Div 3 and inconceivable that we would ever be relegated, you...

    Adios Championship

    Well, that's it, bar a Man Ure like resurgence in the second half which is extremely unlikely from this bunch. At the end of the day we simply weren't ready for the Championship. We didn't have enough players, or at least enough with the capability to compete in the Championship with the...
  8. Time for changes?

    This isn't a blip.. after banging in 5 against QPR we have failed to score, i think Foran is wasted on the bench or on the wing when he has proven in very little time to be a much better option than Bradbury, who couldn't hit a barndoor with a banjo on his ****! I really rate bradbury and he...
  9. SZ BT Cup Preview - Part 2.

    GROUP D Sledge_Whites (managed by Sledge_1980) Current Form - Top of VI.120 with a 100% record, lst in the 1st round of the Cup though. One to watch - Oz Van dyk. West Indian spinner who has taken 18 wickets at the incredible average of 5.06, which included career best figures of 7-38...
  10. An Excellent Warm Up Game – Spurs V SUFC - The Shrimper Truth.

    The Shrimper Truth. – match report and player ratings. It showed excellent spirit for SUFC to agree to play Spurs and the goodhearted Shrimper hordes again poured much needed cash into the (hopeless) attempt to regenerate this desolate patch of depressing north London. The local football club...

    Shrimpers v Spurs...the Prawn Sandwhich view!!

    Suited an booted and off to the Lane on the 10:45 from Southend Vic having nearly been wiped out by an out of control wrinkly on a mobility scooter. I met up with my fellow guests and hosts and headed to the hospitality suite overlooking the car park for a few beers. Having obtain the...

    One final whinge - trains

    What were they thinking? Outside the station they had posters advertising 'no engineering works'...well pat on the back there Sending only 4 carriages up there, meant okay at Southend, busier at Prittlewell, heaving at Rochford and then so forth But with West Ham at home surely they'd have...
  13. Life in this side yet!

    I dont know what anyone else thinks but are the blues not coming alive, goals from JCR, Bradbury (if he starts finishing on a regular basis) he could actually be quite a handfull! I predict Freddie will start firing on all cylinders in Feb if he stays! It would be great to get some...

    Southampton - An Overview

    McCormack - easily man of the match. Scything tackles flying in, good distribution, and a stunning goal. The goal looked like a Gower type of shot, blasted in. Bradbury - oh so many chances, but still offered a lot for the team. Finishing aside, a good performance Sodje - Another face to face...
  15. Errrmmm...

    Quite simply dissapointing with the views on the threads lately. Tilson Out? your having a laugh. We didn't expect to be in this leauge this season, and we should be thank-full to him (and the players of course) that we are playing at this level. All you have to do is cast you minds back to...

    S*it Story....

    If this was me, I think I'd be quite proud. Alas, it's taken from another messageboard: No personal experience of this since about the age of three...sorrryyy but I did see this story online.... Funniest damn thing that has ever happened to me. A couple of weeks ago we decided to...
  17. Most complicated sports league

    The wife's home town rugby team in NZ (Wellington Lions) have got through to the final of the Air NZ NPC Cup (which is a big deal apparently). Having looked on the net about this I found the rules for this competition. Can anyone come up with a more confusing and complicated league structure...

    I just spoke to The Goat...

    Just interviewed Shaun Goater on his new book. What a splendid chap he is. Efusive in his praise for Southend and Eastwood in particular, he's finishing off the PR work before heading back to Barbados to set up his own team. I believe that he's in Southend today and signing books, so...

    Horrible Memories

    1984-85 - Average league crowd 1,929 finishing 20th in Div 4 - the year after the Anton Johnson saga 1998-99 - First season back in the basement finishing 18th. You can tell how dire we were when a) Barry Conlon is top scorer b) Mark Beard gets player of the season.
