    Can we have a list of all those autobiographies/biographies/diaries which reference Southend (either as player or manager), and reviews are good. A list to start: Tackling My Demons - Stan Collymore- 9/10. Good Southend coverage, excellent book overall. Feed the Goat - Shaun Goater - 8/10...

    Memory Lane Eddie Firmani v Eddie Clayton 1:5 - poll now added

    As voting draws to a close in McAlinden v McCrory, it's time to introduce our next tie which is one of the most eagerly anticipated clashes of the round, for me at least, as the two Eddies battle it out. As usual, I'll give you a chance to post up your memories, and before I add the poll.

    Harry's Nostalgia - North Bank Memories

    With the imminent return to the North Bank, albeit for two games I thought I'd share a few memories with you, while I still have them that is. Firstly though a big well done to Smiffy, TrueBlue and all the others who have worked hard to achieve this. :clap: From the first day I stepped into...

    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...

    20 goal strikers.

    Everyone knows that having one of these players can benefit any team and since the departure of you know who, there have been numerous calls for us to get one in. Never an easy task. It got me thinking how many times an SUFC player has achieved this feat, so using Robin Michels excellent SUFC...

    "big" names

    Seeing the silly season is upon us and we are either being linked or speculating about who we would like to see down at the hall. Does anyone have a particular favourite or in fact actually remember anyone who has been any good when they have joined us on the way down from a reasonable career ...
