    Manchester United v Barcelona part 3

    The stage is now set for what we can confidently call, without any fear of exaggeration, the most important English club football match in history. Manchester United's hard-fought progression to the European Cup Final means that, whatever happens tonight, it will be an all-Premier League affair...

    Maher!

    I was reading one of the free newspapers they hand out at Liverpool Street and it mentioned that Gillingham are keen to sign Maher over the summer. This has been confirmed by a couple of Gillingham season ticket holders I work with. If it is confirmed that he has played his last game for the...

    Sponsor OUR stadium

    With the likely outcome of Ron giving the name of our stadium to the highest bidder,would it be totally out of our reach if we started clubbing together on here to sponsor the stadium ourselves?? Many a fan will be leaving Roots Hall with a heavy heart and fantastic memories.Memories also of...

    North Bank

    If we was given the opportunity to use the North Bank for the last couple of seasons at RH, would you be interested in sitting there, either as a STH or Non-STH? I think it would be great to say goodbye to RH properly by getting us all back in there for a season or two. The noise we could...
  5. Another Wolf

    Hi there, decided to register to ask a couple of questions about Freddie and also to keep you updated on his progress over the next season if you are interested in being informed. I've read some crap on here the last few weeks, some from wolves fans and some from Southend fans, personally i...

    An appeal for your help...

    Dear All... As some of you already know, This July, I will be traveling to the Tigray region of Ethiopia with CAFOD, to work with disadvantaged children. The duration of my assignment will be for six weeks, during which time I shall be working within a local community at a school in Mekelle...

    My idea for a theme for fancy dress.

    Just an idea if we can get some sort of SZ theme for the day... Not sure how to implicate it and not looking to renew old sterotypes etc etc but its pretty clear to us all that Saints will be Freddy's last game for us. I think it would be a fitting tribute to probably the best striker I have...
  8. Car Phone Kit

    Just bought a new car (opted out of company car scheme) and thinking about getting a phone kit installed. My phone (Nokia 6210) doesn't have Bluetooth and I'm not allowed a camera phone due to the place where I work, so I was thinking about getting a wired car kit. These seem cheap enough on...

    Michael Kightly

    I pulled up at Tesco's Pitsea for some fuel and none other than Michael Kightly parked beside me to get some fuel as well. He said hello to me because he must have noticed my SUFC car sticker. I then had a chat with him while we both filled our cars up. I asked him if he had another club...

    The fbm view and ratings

    AGAINST ALL ODDS Years ago, when Southend were regularly plumbing the depths of the division now known as league 2, I used to get some funny looks when people found out I was a season ticket holder at Roots Hall.  “What on earth for?” they used to quip, “Surely you must play ‘Spot the Crowd’...

    Females you have chased

    We have not had a good old lads chat for a while and I think its about time we got another going. So my topic for today is "Who have you been dying to sleep with only to get there and be totally disapointed by there performance". Mine happened as recently as this summer. I was given a...
  12. Which bit of Roots Hall would you take...

    ..to Fossets Farm, and why? Inspired by SBH's question in another thread, I would take the North bank for the away fans. This would serve three purposes: 1. The away fans would continue to have cramped accomodation and a crap view, as is only fitting. 2. They could make all the noise they...

    SZ guitarists...

    Tens, elevens, twelves or bigger? Just bought a shiny set of twelves and though I would celebrate with a fairly inane survey of the pub. Personally, I think I prefer the rich tone on twelves but this is probably because I'm almost an exclusively acoustic player at the moment. An afternoon...

    US Open

    I know there's a lot of anti-Murray people on here but watching him has become really comelling in the last few months. I sort of vaguely followed tennis when Henman was our best hope but I never had the feeling that on his day, he could compete with the very best. Well, Murray looks as...
  15. New home Shirt

    Has anyone else found the shirt a little difficult to get on. I have to take real care not to rip it when fitting it over my head!!

    Due to formatting problems the report isn't yet on the front page so here it is BLUES LAND TITLE IN ESSEX ONE-TWO The two Essex sides defied all the odds in League One by claiming both automatic promotion spots – with the Super Shrimpers deservedly landing the title. In fact, it was...

    Thank to Scriv and Club

    Just wanted to say thanks to Scriv and the club for putting a obituary for my Grandad Alex Baker in Fridays programme. Dave couldnt have been nicer about the whole thing and the write up was very fitting. Thanks DtS
  18. The Goat

    A legend bows out We should be privileged that a player and a person of such high standing will play his final game in professional football for Southend United. Lets hope our last game of the season against Bristol City at the Hall is a day for celebration for the club but given that it will...
  19. Jokes And Oher Interesting things;

    13 things for a man to do in Tesco 1. Get 24 boxes of condoms & randomly put them in people's trolleys when they aren't looking. 2. Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5 minute intervals. 3. Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone: 'Code 3...

    Other observations form yesterday

    I popped in the club shop before the game yesterady to have a look around. Was impressed with the refit, however the queue for the counter was massive and I bumped into pboreham who pointed there was 1 person behind the counter! I like what the club have done with the executive boxes. In...
