    The 1953 Floods

    I hope the following is of some interest, on a Saturday afternoon in 1953 Southend United played a poor game of football, the crowd had a good old moan and then went home totally unaware of the disaster that would hit locally in a few hours time. Saturday 31st January 1953 Southend United 1-0...

  11. Good luck to Southend in the playoffs

    I'm a Southampton fan & like many of us down on the coast remember the last game of last season fondly when you people came down and turned St marys into a party zone. Talk in one of the boozers last night was centred around who we'll be playing next season and all bar a few were saying that...

    Alison Moyet

    Taken from her website: (responding to a Sheff Wed fan) "Now this may hurt... I will allways be a Southender.I am a blue soldier. I have also come to the conclusion that i can never have loved football in a way a man does,or perhaps a modern girl who has grown up playing the game. Going to...

    Live Music Experiences.

    After Shrimper James's thread about your festival line-ups, it got me thinking back to the last festival I went to in 2005 and it's one I'll never forget. We all love live music no matter what music we enjoy, there's just something fantastic about hearing and seeing your favourite...

    The Game when you questioned

    On the hole I think my Dad's decision to take me to Southend games rather than say a "big team" has enriched my life. However I am sure we can all think back to a game when you really have to questions why you bothered. A time when just in a moment of weakness you contemplated...
