    The gambling Gods are trying to tell me something!

    Yesterday (Northampton (a)). I thought "Hmmm, curse of the ex-player. I'll put £2 on O'Toole to score". I didn't, he did. I thought Id put £2 on Demetriou to score. He did, I didn't. BONG!
  2. Oxley

    Latest scapegoat for the Southend faithful,this guy is often exposed but some think he should be pulling off worldies every 10 minutes. Blimey this guy just like every keeper in the entire world needs protection...lay off him for gods sake.

    England World Cup heartbreak: Have they upset football gods?

    This article is currently on the BBC sport website http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/33365095 Written with tongue in cheek, it made me laugh, wince, and feel a bit guilty at some of the home truths. Obviously, as an England fan I think most of it is a load of old bollocks. Its a bit long...
  4. Good luck Southend!

    Just want to post a 'good luck' to the super Shrimpers. Let's hope that the football gods are smiling on us today! UTB

  7. Stoke City

    I thought i would answer some of these incredible posts that have i believe tarnished this very good forum.I do believe in freedom of speech but i wonder if some of these supporters negativity is beneficial to the cause. The managers five year plan is to structure the club solidifying us as a...

    OD Match 9

    Southchurch Village CC vs Fresh Team A rare starter for me simply because this has turned out to be an unexpected chance at consolidating my place at the top of the league and a real shout at promotion to level IV. The problem is i've lost all 13 matches between the two of us, although I have...

    We Need Better Coaching

    Southend have once again showed various instances of fight, several instances of actually looking good; movement, passing, runs.. but what is ALWAYS lacking is the final product. whether that be greediness, inability to pass and move, get into a good position to help us keep possesion, or even...

    Wenger's Vengeance

    Try and imagine, if you will, Arsene Wenger throwing a tantrum. It doesn't really fit in with his professorial demeanour, does it? I can imagine him taking me to one side, putting a hand on my shoulder and telling me that he wasn't angry with me, that he was just disappointed. I can imagine that...
  11. Ron speaks

    Make of this what you will. Can't wait to hear his take on squad size! Good luck tonight.Will be listening in - no doubt of the MK commentary as te Southend broadcast is so hit and miss. A few - not many in truth - have commented that I have "gone quiet" over the past two or three weeks...

    The Ballad of Balloon Boy

    No matter how lethargic and fuzzy-headed you feel this Monday morning, no matter how unenthusiastic you were about the idea of leaving your bed, console yourself with the knowledge that at least one person out there is having it worse than you. Somewhere, presumably on Merseyside, one little boy...

    No Chance For Youth At The Top

    One week on from The Great Chelsea Punishment and still the sense of shock reverberates through the global game. A steady stream of similar accusations have trickled in through the front door of FIFA HQ with some of English football's proudest names implicated in the scandal. Poaching, it is...

    Just suppose...

    Tilly believed Heath and White were going to stay. When they joined, Col U had a different manager. They've done well for us and have now been recalled, leaving us just one weekend prior to the window closing. Left back is the real problem position and Tilly is in talks with an out of favour...

    Imaginary conversations... or are they?

    Date - 1st July. Venue - Tilly's bedroom. The alarm goes off at 7 am. ST: <yawn> Ah well, another day another dollar. To be fair, it is the start of a new contract year. I wonder if Brushy has sorted out our new players. Better ring and find out. <Dials Brushies number. Phone rings for...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Seven

    Chapter Seven - A Mystery Wrapped In A Riddle And Clad In A Southend United Scarf Ricey knocked once on the door of Osymandus' cottage. With a loud creak that seemed unnecessarily dramatic, it opened slowly to reveal a gloomy mess, lit only by a handful of candles scattered about the room...

  18. ''Don't worry be happy''

    No significant moves in the transfer market. Again! Be happy. The OS fails to keep the paying supporter updated with moves or lack of moves. Again! Be happy. We are aspiring to consolidation and fearing relegation. Again! Be happy. We await a string of excuses to be trotted out by the club as to...

    The Midfield Puzzle...

    Chelsea game aside, these last few weeks have been more and more worrying for the club... With our success over the last few years has come an ever increasing fan base with ever increasing expectations and with the team now failing to meet these expectations yesterday, for the first time, I...
