    People are strange

    A thread for those things we see in life that don't quite qualify for the 'happy' or 'hacked off' threads. I'll start... At lunchtime today, I strolled past the Hammersmith Apollo. Absolutely loads of folk there, many of them sitting down amid the metal barriers. Turns out people have been...

    Question 2016 - How Was It For You?

    Not spotted a similar thread so thought I'd start it for a bit of quick reflection before we properly get going with 2017. Have seen something similar I think in previous years and always find it interesting - we all have a common bond in SUFC but outside of that all have different lives with...

    Have we ever played slicker football?

    I've been going week in week out since 01/02, and the football on display at the moment IMO is on par if not greater than the football we saw under tilson in the 05/06 campaign. It's one thing to be confident enough to attempt the flicks and skill but the players we have actually have the...

    USA Football Podcast - with a Shrimpers Twist

    Having received a contact via my 'Roots To The 92' Facebook page, the other day I ended up doing a podcast recording with two great folk based in Los Angeles. These guys love UK football from afar and in particular focus on life at the lower end of the leagues. One is also attempting to do the...

    Official Match Thread Southend United 2-0 Colchester United

    Getting near time to discuss Saturday's friendly with the cousins I think. Ticket sales are pretty grim at the moment with just 1500 home tickets gone so far. This is probably not surprising after folk turning up in numbers last night. Good for me though as we can venture into the South Upper...

    1,000 to 1

    Went in to the local bookies (Ladbrokes) on Wednesday and asked for odds on Southend winning the Premiership title by the end of the 2025/26 season. Not surprisingly they didn't have the odds to hand and told me to come back on Saturday. So in I go this afternoon all expectant of odds of...

  9. Shrimpers are Magic

    Players everyone else seems to think are brilliant but you think are rubbish

    Southend players of course. Mine was Keith Jones, totally over hyped IMO. I remember going to Wolves away midweek where he did next to nothing but the fans were wetting themselves everytime he went near the ball - I just couldn't understand why. I wasn't a big fan of Benji either but he wrote...

    What do we get after Thursday?

    I have absolutely no idea what the outcome of Thursday's election results will be, apart from whoever gets in, they will not meet the needs of the majority of voters in this country. I've always been a lifelong Labour voter but I'm really struggling to bond this time round and the rest of the...

    Referee & Assistant Referee Required

  13. Southend fans summer survey

    Hello all. All At Sea has put together a survey to get a taster of what Southend fans really think about things from ticket prices to the new stadium. It takes about five minutes to fill in and we've had a good response already after advertising it on Twitter. As it's Friday and therefore...
