    I know he is hardly going to beg for relegation, but does anyone else feel that Tilly has developed and learnt again as a manager? Remember last year when all he would talk about was 50 points and surviving etc, even when we were in the play-off positions? This year, all the vibes coming from...

    Cue friday afternoon, as I quaff my glass of champagne,I glance at the clock in the lounge and notice its 14.15pm Crikey I bet get myself down the gate for the flight,so I amble myself down to the gate, and introduce myself to Michael and Steven, and then to all of our horror, we notice the...

    Championship Ins and Outs

    The following article on the OS shows who's in and who's out at our divisional rivals... Championship Transfer Update And the main story is... that no one else has signed anyone either! Sub-stories... I see that Ipswich have released Gerard Nash. Wonder if Tilly & Brush...

    The League Paper

    Front page advert for an article inside headed up "TILSON: WHY I WON'T BE TOP BOSS". Now there's me thinking this was a huge pledge to us for his future. Reading the article - a big double page spread - it is referring to the fact that he feels foreigners and top ex-Prem...
  5. Lads!

    Ah, Tit Monday. It's not that far off now, that glorious day when, heading into work on the bus, or walking to the Tube, or sitting on the train, you find yourself suddenly chirpier than you have been in months. You find yourself smiling at strangers again. There is a mild involuntary...

    .Goals on SkySports

    Just seen the the goals on SkySports news. Lewis was so unlucky with his OG, Barrett dive-headed the ball in Daryls direction but it deflected off Hunty. Not sure what Maher was up to for his OG (if it was one) Eastwoods goal was pure class, the goalie didn't move as Fred swept it past...
  7. One fan Yesterday...

    Bald headed, was wearing a blck parker, Was presumably a Southend fan though im not 100% sure. An absolute tw&t of the highest order. Was walking away from the ground when he barged purposefully into a woman, preceeded by shouting "You want some or something?" Followed by an...

    Shaun Goater

    I thought the Goat was a cut above today, his little flicks and touches were a joy to behold today. The icing on the cake would have been a goal, if he'd headed in from that corner I'm sure the roof would have blown off Roots Hall

    ST.VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE AS BEES BASH BLUES Southends unbeaten run came to an abrupt end at Griffin Park as Brentford exacted revenge for the 4-1 drubbing dished out to them at the Hall a few weeks back. That scintillating performance seemed a million miles away as Southend were second best...
  10. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

    Blackpool by Plane

    Sorry its a bit late but what a day out. Stayed at my old mans in Hullbridge and got picked up by mates at 4am for short trip to Stansted. After being harrased by the security staff we set of for the bar and had a quick drink. Got to departure lounge and it was full of Southend fans - Maybe...

    Posters throughout history

    I remember FM13 being obtuse a few years ago. But in all my time on SZ, wiggy continues to astound me with sheer pig-headedness, personal bias and obscuring fact/opinion. But to be fair, if we all ignore wiggy, she might go away. But we can't help taking the bait!
  13. Our fans are a disgrace

    Well i am obviously dissapointed at our result saturday as are we all. I will leave the match reviews etc to the likes of FBM. I want to tell you all about my experience in the west stand on saturday. I usually sit with either Grim up north or CI city blue in the east and have done for quite...

    JEKYLL AND HYDE AT BARNET FAIR Victorian accounts of Barnet Fair deem it to be a "disgrace to civilisation". 90% of attendees came to trade “Horses, Donkeys or Mules” but there were other sideshows, not least the man who ate live rats “as though they were apples”. In such times freakshows at...

    What must be Wiggy's delight - A match report

    Well for those who were in the west stand what a f**kin shambles it was to start with. Get to the gorund my usual 10 mins before kick off to find the road full of cars not going anywhere, the old bill out in force and loads of people outside the ground not going anywhere. And I mean loads...
  16. 442 magazine

    The November issue of 442 dropped through my letterbox today & I find that page 88 starts an article entitled "The Derby That Time Forgot".  Yes it's about the Mighty Shrimpers vs Cull Ewe. The main picture shows Darryl leaping salmon like seemingly about 20 feet in the air.  Oh and catching...
