  6. Greetings

    Just a quick hello from a long time Blues supporter (last 10 years as a season ticket holder-South Upper). Remember being in the 'old south bank' watching Bill Garner work his magic with the ball. Often a visitor here reading with interest the views of fellow blues fans, and thought id join in.

  8. From the training ground.

    From the Training Ground. Lots of crossing and shooting practice today. Dickinson looked very sharp. He has one of the hardest shots I've seen in practice, just needs to keep them down tho, as too many went flying into the trees. I'm all for the power thing tho as it gives the goalie less time...

    Left and Right Wing Terrorists

    Not wanting to hijack the debate on what happened in Norway, I thought i'd start a new thread about left and right wing terrorists. From my observations (and these are just my opinions) it seems to me that there is a real difference between the two. It seems to me that right wingers actually go...
  10. Bill Garner

    Saw him in Asda's at Shoebury a couple of weeks ago. Still looks the part. I had my picture taken with him at the club's open day in 1972. Christ, i wish father time had been as kind to me as he has to Bill!.

    Memory Lane Roy Hollis v Bill Garner QF2

    Next up is two front men.
  14. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Tony Bentley v Bill Garner 2:4

    Another intriguing clash as Tony Bentley is up against Bill Garner in the type of tie that I suspect would have made a good 50:50 on the pitch.

    BOGMISH Rd 1:1

    Welcome to the Battle of the Greatest Moments in (recent?) Southend History, where our opening tie is Big Bill Garner banging in 4 goals in a 7-0 romp against Weymouth in the FA Cup in the 1970/71 season up against Freddy keeping his nerve in a tense play-off game against Northampton. I look...

    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...

    Harry's Nostalgia - North Bank Memories

    With the imminent return to the North Bank, albeit for two games I thought I'd share a few memories with you, while I still have them that is. Firstly though a big well done to Smiffy, TrueBlue and all the others who have worked hard to achieve this. :clap: From the first day I stepped into...

    Just found this old photo......

    July 1971, Dickie Henderson in a summer show at the Cliffs with Southend players during a training session - so, question is (and let's get away from the doom and gloom!) who can we identify? Come on Harry, relying on you here - I can see Bill Garner, but need your expertise on the rest! Oh, and...
