    England role for Chris Powell?

    Seems so, according to a report in The Times today. Alas it is behind a paywall so I can't dig any further... 976001786250186752

    Pre-Match Thread Southend Utd vs Rotherham Utd

    It's been a bit quite on here lately so I'm 'chucking in' an early pre-match thread for Saturday. Rotherham are 4th in the table at the moment but have lost 2 out of their last three games so all to play for. Three points for Southend will get us to the 50 points mark so it would be great if...

    Youth/U23 game soon?

    Hi all, when/where is the next home game?
  5. Tommy2holes

    What needs to happen for next season to be a success?

    We are essentially a couple of results from safety. We have a squad of players who are fairly old or very young. Quite a few who are injury prone and some who quite frankly haven't earned their money with performances. I don't usually advocate wholesale changes but we have to make quite a few...
  6. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...
  7. Slightly concerned

    I do not wish to introduce any negativity to CP's reign but something is concerning me. It seems Chris does not fancy Elvis or Kyp. Wabo out on loan and what happened to Ba ? I thought when Chris arrived the youth would be encouraged and given chances. Seems only Dru is considered worthy. What...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Blackpool 1-1 Southend United

    Sounded like a fairly even game on the radiogram, chances for both sides and another point picked up away from home towards safety. Still unbeaten away since SCP came in.

    So here we are the fourth away game of Chris Powell's return and time in charge at the Mighty Shrimpers. It is now time for ALL of us to get behind him and the team whether you are at Bloomfield Road, listening on the radio, or watching on ifollow. Chris Powell's 4th Southend United Away...
  11. Season Ticket Renewals

    In last weeks programme it said that the early bird window for renewals closes on April 3rd. Havnt yet received a season ticket pack in the post as normally happens. Just wondering if any other STH have received theirs yet. Seems a bit late if the window is closing fairly soon?
  12. Ref Watch ..... Blackpool A

    We hold a slender lead over Blackpool in League matches - 9 wins to their 8 with a couple of draws. Tomorrow's match will be presided over by one of the oldest League referees. The man in charge is experienced referee, Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear who is doing his third Southend match of the...
  13. Dan Walker

    Hi, I follow Aveley when Southend are not at home. Southend have just loaned forward Dan Walker to Aveley. Anyone seen much of him in the reserves and youth teams? What sort of player is he? Cheers
  14. Pre-Match Thread Blackpool V Southend United

    Another l o n g trip to Lancashire. Coaches leave The Hall at 6.30am so my guess is the team will either fly or travel Friday. After Tuesday's long trip who will SCP pick? A bonus is we have not been picking up injuries or suspensions like we were early in this topsy turvey season. My team...
  15. Fossetts

    Anyone got any idea what is going on at Fossetts at the moment? I have just driven past there and noticed a big “Plant” cabin and a single digger on the land, now I’m not stupid enough to think that 1digger is the start of anything, but there appears to be a couple of minor excavations...

    I am trying to update some of my records along with the respective programmes and was wondering if anyone would happen to know the results of any of the following:- 26-May-67 Southend United v Chelmsford City EPC Cup Final 19-Jan-70 Southend United v Chelmsford City EPC 1 24-Aug-81 Southend...

    How many points do we need to avoid the drop?

    There is always a lot of talk about the number of points needed for Southend not to end up in the bottom 4 at the end of the season. 50 points appears to be the bench mark but I've never truly known why. Is that figure based on previous seasons stats, or have there been clubs relegated recently...
  20. Southend United

    Following the cricket on Victor Chandler this morning I noticed that Southend United are currently playing Deccan Rovers FC in the Indian Bangalore Super Division. Well fancy that!
