    Peter Clarke recalls your favourite ever FA moment involving Southend United, scoring

    SOUTHEND United kick off another FA Cup campaign when they host Chester at Roots Hall tomorrow. But, whatever drama may unfold this weekend, Blues will find it hard going to match the excitement generated by their 2008/09 cup run. More...
  3. Match Income

    With a gate of 7000 including season card holders how much do we think that generated in cash? Say 4000 paying at the gate £15 per head on average plus corporate . Could be £80000 ?

    Thumbs up to the North Bank

    I have read all the negative stuff on here from yet another very dissapointing nite at Roots Hall. Most of it is justified and at times the truth does hurt. Our home form is bizarre based on the performances away form home. At times it has been mentioned about the atmosphere at RH and how it...

    Sturrock : Master tactician

    Paul Sturrock is a genius. He knows that the best day ever for southend supporters ( not including cup matches ) was the league play off final in Cardiff. He also knew how gutted we were to lose out to Swindon + not go to Wembley in the JPT. He realises that by finishing 4th we will have a 2...

    TBV/The crowd and the Freebies.

    Thanks to all who helped give out the balloons/streamers etc yesterday and I think if we had started the game better the atmosphere would of generated more-so than perhaps it did..The question I am asking here is simple. Does it help that we give out these items to the crowd and kids...

    Check this out on the TM... Owen Carbon (2570714) shortcut Owen is a cautious RH Batsman, and a cautious RH finger spin Bowler. He has feeble leadership skills and strong experience. He currently has mediocre batting form, superb bowling form and sublime fitness. Plays For: Aquantra CC...

    Closure of the Live Chat thread

    Well, as I understand it, the decision has been taken to close the Live Chat thread. I won't begin to even attempt to understand why something so innocuous provoked such an anti feeling amongst so many, was it because they were somehow threatened by the good natured banter that went on and...

    The FA Get It Right!

    Justice, when it finally arrived, was measured without being merciless. With a GBP20,000 fine and a four match touchline ban, two of which are suspended, The Football Association have resisted the temptation to make an example of Sir Alex Ferguson without letting him off the hook entirely. On...

    Think what you like about the BNP

    But some of what they say does make sense... The BBC has pulled an appearance by British National Party leader Nick Griffin on today’s Politics Show at the last moment out of fear that his suggestions for the control of expense claims by members of parliament would find popular appeal...

    PL Weekly Points Round 36

    Despite there being only match (THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR HILL YOU WITLESS CRETIN !!!) it generated points for everyone, as the only 2 punters who thought that Leicester wouldn't win (OBL and WickfordShrimper) had Matty Fryatt down as first scorer, a task he achieved of course .. and because 60%...

  14. Henry Winter a man after my own heart

    In the Daily telegraph today he writes an article about Chelsea and in particular Drogba but the end of the article made me this cold, dark, wet Friday proud to be a Shrimper ''If Scolari was hailed as the main winner at Roots Hall, then the FA will be feeling similarly pleased after a...
  15. All the Chelsea Positives

    OK, a bit disappointing we lost after such a brave couple of performances, but what do we expect playing one of the richest clubs in the world? Let's list all of the positives on this thread, because I think there are so many. To start us off: 1 Tilly & Brush have proved that they can play...

    The official lets hear a statement from Ron Martin thread.

    I am sick of all this not knowing wether tilly has been totally inept in this years transfer market or wether the club are just totally tight as we are led to believe. It seems Ron Martin is all for making statements when new grounds are given the go ahead and when there is something positive...

    Will the North bank now get the go ahead ??

    If just half the atmosphere generated last night could be re-created at each home match - what a boost that would be . Lets get this pushed through - post your support here for a conga at every home match !
