    Player of the season so far

    Amongst all the doom and gloom of two consecutive heavy home defeats, let's remember that it has been a superb season so far and most of us would have bitten your hand off if offered 7th at the start of 2016. That said, we were discussing today how there hasn't particularly been one player who...

  3. SUFC Database

    I notice that the excellent SUFC Database www.sufcdb.co.uk hasn't been updated since middle of August. Just wondering if all is OK with Robin?

    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...

    Phil Brown's current record

    As of last night and based on Peter Mile's working out The top ten records are: Southend United Managers League games only, until the end of the 2011/12 campaign. Points changed to three for a win under Dave Smith’s reign in 1982/83. Ratio is calculated as number of points accummulated...

    9th September

    This year, on the 9th September (all being well) the Queen will become the longest reigning British monarch of all time. I wouldn't say it's an achievement or even well done to the Queen because she hasn't actually done anything to be Queen for so long, other than have her dad die when she was...
  10. Official Match Thread Brentwood Town 2-1 Southend Utd u21s

    Does anyone know whether this game is going ahead tomorrow evening and, if so, from which squad the team will be picked?

    Craig Mackail-Smith - Brown wants him on Trial according to Echo

    Apparently according to todays Echo Brown is attempting to bring him in with a view to a trial against Braintee/West Ham. No indication of whether it will happen. Unfortunately he hasn't scored 50 goals over the last 3 seasons.....

    Tunisia massacre

    Very surprised there hasn't been a thread on this over the weekend. Now saying more than 30 Brits assassinated by what might or might not have been a lone ISIS gunman. My heartfelt sympathies to the victims and their families, my thanks to the tourist reps on the ground in the resorts there...

    Other clubs being pro-active

    I know we have this every year, but why do Southend United always appear to be slow in making signings whilst other clubs grab the bull by the horns. Yes people are away but it hasn't stopped others getting in early doors.
  15. Fifa Corruption / Blatter Walks...

    Crazy scenes. The press conference is at 10am. Nicked this from twitter - here's Blatters resignation speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddtfoiaWGqs&feature=youtu.be

    Roots hall...

    As excited and nervous as I am today a strange and yet sad thought crept into my head today. Today is another one of those special games where roots hall comes to life and the roots hall roar can be heard. She may be crumbling she may be old but hasn't she served us so well since being built...
  17. Phil Brown pre-season.

    Very interesting listening to this now that we are at the last 2 game stage. The fitness regime he talks about has worked, as the team still looks strong in that regard. In fact the 2 loanees that are getting some playing time look the most knackered, that being Pigott and Cassidy, so the...

    Is Islam compatible with British Values

    https://yougov.co.uk/news/2015/03/30/majority-voters-doubt-islam-compatible-british-val/ Interesting stuff. From my point of view Islam hasn't integrated as well into British society as well as we might have hoped, however with Labours illegal war etc, we actually haven't exactly helped ourselves.

    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...
  20. Ski Holiday

    Thinking of going on a Ski holiday this year with the girlfriend. Any resort recommendations? I have been once before but she hasn't. Preferably somewhere that is not far from Geneva airport as you can fly there from Southend.
