    Podge Morgan

    Anyone who runs on the pitch and shows his jacksy to Peter Shilton leaving the England keeper in shock and made Roy's penalty a formality deserves his place in the Hall of Fame.

    The Zone Hall of Fame

    With the Zone being 18/19 years old now. I thought it was a good idea to have a forum for all to discuss and remember the sadly parted Players, fans and friends of our beloved club. Each person remembered can have there own thread in here for all to add to.

    SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame - nominations

    Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to open SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame to nominations once more, where we seek to celebrate our history and recognise Southend United's very finest. Rules are one nomination per poster, per round of nominations, so you'll need to think carefully over who you want to...

    Question Whose got the luck? guts and stamina?

    Lenny the legs is on track for the hall of fame more than ever if he doesnt depart, although in all likelihood he will. I think hes turned out 23 times already and would be on track to be our first player to turn out in over 40 games a season ( including subs ) 4 times. ( 4 seasons ) pretty...

    A Rough History of SUFC & Me

    Hi chaps, With recent talk of first games, favourite ever players, hall of fame etc. i've written a blog about the history of my southend support. I hope it's a worthwhile waste of a few minutes for you. http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/entry.php?12-A-Rough-History-of-SUFC-amp-Me Feel free...
  10. Les Stubbs

    With regret I bring the news of the passing today of former Southend United player Les Stubbs. Les had two spells with the club as well as playing for Chelsea where he won the first division championship in 1955. He also played locally with Great Wakering Rovers who he turned out for until he...

    SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame - Nominations round 8

    ...The SZ Hall of Fame? Last time we did a round of nominations was August/Sept, and I think Dave Smith made it in. And I'm pretty sure Mark Gower now qualifies to be nominated. Also we seem to have lost the Hall of Fame page from the front of the website? Unless I'm being blind.

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Dave Smith (2nd ballot)

    Up for election to the SZ Southend United Hall of Fame is manager Dave Smith. Smith came incredibly close last time, missing out by just 0.26%. Will he fare better at his second attempt? Here's what I wrote last time: ---------------------------------------------------- This poll is really a...

    Memory Lane SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ian Benjamin

    It's the answer to the most famous question in Southend United history: who put the ball in the Bury net? And as every Southend fan will gleefully tell you: Ian Benjamin, Ian Benjamin. Now this poll's been a long time coming*, but in some ways that's apt. *He received the required nominations...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame 7th Round Nominations

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame (courtesy of Yorkshire Blue) For a bit of fun and to honour our club's history, I propose starting a SZ Hall of Fame to recognise the true legends of Southend United. The words legend and great are bandied about a bit too often for my liking, I'd like our Hall...

    RIP Roc Raida

    From the X-Cutioners and Busta Rhymes' DJ, he released 6 solo albums as well, and was in the DMC Hall of Fame, he also produced some great tracks. http://www.sixshot.com/news/14576/ I'm guessing he wasn't in anyone's Pool of Death

    Club Hospitality - Blues Lounge

    This Saturday I went to the game via one of the Club's hospitality packages. It was a one off as a friend was back in this country getting married (SamuraiBlue) and we thought we would do something a bit different. Have to say I was very impressed. I had some reservations based on a corporate...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 6th round of nominations

    Not sure how much time I'll have this week, so will start the next round of nominations now. Rules are here. Favourites to be nominated must include Dave Smith, who was surprisingly short of the 90% required, despite leading us to our first ever major silverware; Paul Clark top five in...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Spencer Prior

    Four places (I think) left to fill and next up is Spencer Prior, albeit a day late in Ron Martin style. -------------------------------------------------- Separated by over a decade, Spencer Prior had two very different careers with Southend. Either would be sufficient to get him in the Hall of...

    Memory Lane Special Report on SUFC's previous homes
