  1. Pre-Match Thread Scunthorpe Utd V Southend Utd

    Ok, So here it is... "Honours Even" so to speak.... We beat them 2-1 at Roots Hall in September (Blimey..It feels so long ago now personally). Then we travelled to Glanford Park in November for the FA Cup match, and lost 1-2. So, my question is this, what difference can we bring to this...
  2. Ebou Adams-a missed opportunity?

    This young "box-to-box midfielder" has just moved from Dartford to Norwich City for a fee. Now I am not suggesting for one minute that in a straight fight we have more attraction than City. But there are, as we all know, some gems out there. The Thames basin is a fertile ground for talent. Once...

    Latest Rumours Blues miss out on Harry Forrester

    According to Chris Phillips. Young winger who was at Doncaster and now signed for Rangers for an undisclosed fee. Can't believe that we were ever very close, given that he was quite public in wanting to play for Mark Warburton again (who he played for at Brentford and Watford). Few...
  4. Ref Watch ..... Millwall H

    A quick return to Roots Hall for Millwall, but a referee whose last visit was somewhat longer ago. The referee for tomorrow's early kick-off is Kevin Wright from Yaxley near Peterborough - let's hope he's the right man for the job. His last visit was way back in 2009/10 for the 2-1 defeat by...

    A non SZ friend of mine (Not sure what is worse, not being on SZ or being a friend of mine!) is nearing the end of his collection of SUFC programmes home and away and wonders if anyone has and is willing to sell/give away any of the following. Some are extremely old. Please contact me and I'll...

    Further to my Memory Lane post on Sheffield United cup games I've had an enquiry about one of players Walden (don't know his first name yet) which is amazing, it means someone has read my post :smile: Anyway I'm doing some research into the player and thought I would post it up for all to...

    The Watford years 1977-1979

    Memories of the two clashes in 77-78. Incredible rivalry, to the point that Match Of The Day gave the game at Vicarage Road top billing - it was a Division 4 (League 2) game - it was THAT big. Then the cup tie's in late 78. The draw at their place and the replay that had Liverpool at home as the...

    A little less deep depression, a little more perspective please

    I've been away on my annual hols and can't believe some of the stuff on here. So I thought I'd do a little research as to how we have done whenever we have been promoted to this league. 1971-72 - Promoted to Div 3 for 1st time. 1972-73 - First 6 league results - H v Wrexham, Lost 1-0, A v...

    Yago Fernandez

    New triallist due to play at Brentwood tomorrow, according to CP. Looks like he was tipped for the top, but don't know why he didn't make it. Once linked with Arsenal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yago_Fern%C3%A1ndez

    Peter Taylor

    According BBC Sport just signed former O's striker Chris Dagnall for his new charges Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters. He replaced former Watford, Liverpool, Man City and England goalkeeper David James as Manager.
  14. Transfer targets

    It seems that discussion of general targets/released players etc is happening across multiple threads. Here's yet another thread, but maybe a good place to discuss targets and players should look at. Who knows, maybe Phil will have a look! This isn't to replace threads where there is 'inside...

    Play-Off PL takes off tonight?

    It's all very close in the Play-Off Prediction League so far but that could all change tonight! In the No, 2 fixtures seven predictors (Westander, Teenage-Shrimper, thenobster, LuckyLuca, davewebbsbrain, Jimmyshrimp and Kitch) have predicted all four results correctly and so if they get the...

    Placebo - Cliffs Pavilion. Tickets available!

    Hi all, Got 3 standing tickets for Placebo at Cliffs Pavilion tonight - but can't make it now :sad: But I don't want the tickets going to waste - so their available to anyone here for any reasonable offer (cost £29.50 each originally, but happy to accept less rather than seeing them go in the...
  18. Ref Watch ..... Stevenage A

    Tomorrow we visit a team we've never lost to but we have a referee who we have never got a point with - one of those records will have to go! Man in charge tomorrow is 34-year old, Geoff Eltringham from Sunderland. He is in his sixth season as a League referee and will be refereeing just his...

    Under 18's Match Report Youth Team Suffer Watford Reverse - Saturday 14th February 2015

    Southend United U18s slipped to a disappointing 3-0 defeat away to Watford, losing their 100% record in Football League Youth Alliance Merit League One in the process. Rob Craven's match report can be found here.
  20. Ref Watch ...... Accrington H

    The four recent home matches against Accrington have been tight affairs with a 1-0 win apiece and two draws. This is in stark contrast to our other two home matches against them, in the late 50s, just after the abolition of Divs 3 North and South, which we won by an aggregate of 10-3...
