  2. Juicy story??

    chris phillips tweeted that he is just finishing off the juiciest story he has written about Southend in some time. Sounds ominous.. Apparently giving a clue later tonight and I assume story will be out tomorrow? Anyone in the know?
  3. Tilson's new Lincoln

    I saw Lincoln play at Ilkeston yesterday - comfortable 4-0 winners - Laurent not included as he had taken a knock in training but Nicolau played the first half. I was really impressed by the way Tilly's new team played as a unit and it was amazing that they showed such understanding after no...
  4. big questions to be answered

    from documents that I have seen the new stadium is due for completion on 26/11/2012 and roots hall is due to be knocked down 24/9/2012, meaning a 2 month gap where we may have to nowhere to play. martin and gypsy boy always maintain that rootshall will not be touched until new stadium is...

    Memory Lane Season reviews 1920 to 1955

    Now I know that this is't everyone's cup of tea but to pass the long soccerless days here's my take on Blues history season by season: SEASON 1919-20 FROM BANKRUPTCY TO SUCCESS The first season after football had closed down for the First World War, and at the start of the season the only...
  6. Southend United 2010/2011 Review

    More attention (understandably) seemingly on Lincoln's result today than our own, so I thought I'd bring the focus back to the mighty Blues. Hope you enjoy the article: Against my better judgement I’m beginning to feel sorry for the Lib Dems. No, wait, hear me out. Obviously they’re a...
  7. Signed bilel mohsni shirt, which he wore at shrewsbury

    I am auctioning off a signed Bilel Mohsni shirt to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund. He wore the shirt in the away draw at Shrewsbury Town in November. Whoever wins the auction will have the shirt presented to them by Bilel as well. A big thank you to the club and to Bilel for this too. I am...

  9. Chris phillips' non league marathon

    To Shrimperzoners, It's Chris Phillips here from the Echo, on the scrounge I'm afraid. In April I will be running more than 30 miles to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund in memory of my former colleague at the paper Dick Marshall who sadly passed away last June. My run will start at...

    Up for election to the SZ Southend United Hall of Fame is manager Dave Smith. Smith came incredibly close last time, missing out by just 0.26%. Will he fare better at his second attempt? Here's what I wrote last time: ---------------------------------------------------- This poll is really a...

    OD Promotions and Relegations

    A thread up in England and he seems to be confident on his results (based on accuracy of play-offs). If so I'm in IV.50 have one bot and the teams finishing 5th and 6th don't look up to much, though I guess they could lose their play-offs. I'm stronger than all four of them. The other team that...

    I have to wonder...

    We, as fans of a lower league club, often complain (well, moan) about the way the lower leagues are pretty much shafted by the television stations. Yes, the BBC has a deal to show X amount of Championship games and their lower league highlights show is most certainly better than that piece of...

    Stag in Prague

    Just adding the finishing touches to a stag I've organised as part of Best Man duties - we're off this weekend. If anyone has been there on ze razzle, is there a particular place or club that we really should be looking at? Cheers for any tips - it'll get you some old school green and on the...

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...

  20. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...
