  1. Yorkshire Blue


    I'm sure I've missed out a few but feel free to list them below and I'll add them in and lets see if we can get the definitive list of Southend hattricks. If you've got youtube highlights I'll add those in as well Cox v Pompey (H) Sat 16 Feb 2019 3rd division Theo v Franchise FC (H) Sa 21...

    Just started on Battrick.

    Anyone got hints and tips on this. Have been playing hattrick for a while but you lot all seem to be on this now. My squad that i've been given, as expected, looks shocking. Would anyone mind sifting through and letting me know what i should train, who i should fire etc. I havent spent a penny...
  3. Yorkshire Blue


    Just wanted to brag that I'm currently top of my II and ranked 12th in England. Thought I'd better get that in quick, because whilst I am top of my division, I'm also just a point off 6th place.

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Billy Best

    I never saw Billy Best play. What I have seen was the reverence that those who had, hold Billy Best. The mere mention of his name and fans of a certain age go all misty-eyed. I first noticed this phenomenon in 1993. I knew Stan was good, but I wasn't at that stage sure quite how good he was...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Stan Collymore

    The next man up for election to the Southend United Hall of Fame is Stanley Victor Collymore. I think Stan might be the first man to divide opinion sufficiently to have a few no votes. After all, longevity is one of the criteria and Stan only graced a Southend shirt thirty-three times and...

    Stop Moaning about Loan players

    Will you lot stop maoning about the amount of loan players we have, is the record stuck, Blues fans have been moaning for the last 83 years about it. Monday 16th March 1925 TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY: Even in 1925 there was deadline day, the rules being that you could not sign any more new...

    www.footstar.org We're having a recruitment drive there for England right now. So I thought I'd come here and shamelessly advertise this site, and I hope it sits well in this section. Of course it is free to play for anyone, there is a FS Fan package etc. like Hattrick sort of. Basically you...

    Question A shrimper christmas carol

    A SHRIMPER CHRISTMAS CAROL It was in the offices of Southend united after the Huddersfield match, Paul Brush-Cratchett and his son Tiny Tilly approached Uncle Ronald to ask about time off at Christmas. “Humbug” retorted Ronald I want you two and the team in training all over Christmas. Uncle...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 3 - Canada Shrimper

    This week, John from Canada takes part in the interview with an exile chat. The following picture is from his latest trip over to Southend for the Swindon game: 1) How long have you been an exile? A) Been out of the country for 10 years less 8 months in the middle 2) Why did you...

    Shepherd's Bush Shrimper's Scunny Report

    Apologies for the delay with this one. Makes less depressing reading than reports of our humping in Bristol though.... It’s fair to say that the North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire region is not a happy hunting ground for us Shrimpers. We very rarely seem to pick up points at the lovely...

    What's your favourite SUFC player debut EVER?

    Following on from the second half thread, what's your favourite ever debut by a Southend player? The ONLY rule is you must have been there. In recent memory, for me it's got to be the Eastwood hattrick vs Swansea, or failing that, the mighty Dreeeewe against Cheltenham.

    Chairman puts Southsea Commoners up for grabs

    I'm pretty sure after much umming and ahhing that I'm never going to actually take any serious control of my hattrick team again. I know it's against the rules but i can't see what the real problem would be with me passing the Southsea Commoners on to anyone wanting to start out in the...

    Hattrick - This Seasons Cup

    I think there may be a problem with the site at the moment as my cup match is reading as follows: "The match is in progress, 96 minutes of the second half have been played." Either that or an injury has occured that makes Eduardos look like a bruised toenail!

    Hattrick - guess the price

    I'm on the search for a new keeper, and I spotted this guy... Jindřich Sojka [playerid=35573558] 28 years and 99 days, solid form, healthy A pleasant guy who is balanced and dishonest. Has divine experience and disastrous leadership abilities. Also part of Team Česká republika! Next...

    Hattrick - luddite alert

    OK, forgive me for my impending attack of luddite-ness... but every time I try to look at hattrick, it loads, allows me on for a couple of minutes... and then keeps crashing. Why? :(
  16. Blackout rugby

    Just wondering if anyone else has a blackoutrugby team. It's basically the rugby equivalent of hattrick/battrick. It's still fairly early on in the game (only 4 games into the first season), but so far it seems good. I'm still in the Cup at the moment, but once I've been knocked out I wouldn't...

    Hattrick promotion

    Is it actually worth doing if your team isn't likely to be able to compete at the next level? Presumably my 40,000 loyal fans won't be quite so loyal next season if I'm getting thumped every week. It appears the V team that came down has been replaced meaning that I'm top dog in the league but...

    Hattrick - Youth Team

    Hurrah and huzzah - I've finally been allowed to pull my YT keeper: Dharmayoni Kanjilal (185013333) 17 years and 80 days, passable form, healthy A pleasant guy who is temperamental and dishonest. Has disastrous experience and inadequate leadership abilities. Next birthday: 08/01/2008...

    Hattrick advice please!

    As mentioned earlier i'm in the process of re starting by selling everyone and having 2 teams of trainees, however the question is what to train? I will have sold all players by the end of this week and have about £14m in the bank, so come on guys what do you think?
