    If nobody did as they said

    Saw this today, a bit of fun song wise. What if the Temptations had no Imagination! What if billie Jean was michaels lover ? ok over to your lot.
  2. helloooo

    Hey all, newbie here (obviously) Who am I? A bit about myself, I live in Australia, unfortunately quite a fair distance from Roots Hall. Or any League two ground for that matter so I cant claim to have actually seen a Southend match live. I have a shockingly poor knowledge of football in...

    Teaching RE

    I'm ready for the banter, and have no problem with it at all, but think that this article is very interesting regarding the place of RE in our schools: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6417096 It begins: And it goes on... I think a few on here need to really take stock of that...
  4. My First Game....

    Can anyone help me? I am sure my very First Southend game was a friendly against Gothenburg in the late 80's. I remember watching under the lights in the Paddock (remember that?) and there were loads of goals. Can anyone remember this game and confirm this game took place and wasn't a figment...

    If you had a time machine....

    ....where would you go? No, I'm not talking about turning back the clock on your own life, stopping that bird from dumping you, and radically altering the space-time continuum. I'm talking as a guy who loves his history and has quite a vivid imagination when it comes to picturing places and...

    Squad numbers as lists

    Following on from Yorkie, (originally Danny Baker) - the Southend squad as Thelonious Monk's list of advise to musicians: Sean Clohessy - JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT A DRUMMER, DOESN’T MEAN YOU DON’T HAVE TO KEEP TIME. Anthony Straker - PAT YOUR FOOT & SING THE MELODY IN YOUR HEAD, WHEN YOU PLAY...

    My thoughts..for what they are worth...

    Firstly, I am more disappointed tonight than I can remember being as a Southend United supporter ...and that includes relegations and watching much, much poorer teams. I am eating a Sainsbury's Cheese & Tomato sandwich when I should be celebrating. A great many of you will have more valid...

    Ryan Hall

    So should he start next Saturday against Morecambe or should PS keep the winning team as it is. He is, as his recent goals and assists show (when he does come on) without doubt the catalyst of our team and the player with most flare and imagination,but who would you drop if indeed you would...
  9. Things aint that bad at RH after all

    Reading this you realise things aint too bad at SUFC, this is an actual letter sent to Grimsby Town by a fan after a game this season, read on its very good........ Dear Players of Grimsby Town FC I am writing with regard to my absolute astonishment and disbelief as to the sheer magnitude...

    Liverpool V Manure

    Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but a good old fashion blood and guts derby game with plenty of passion, crap passing, missed opportunities and the obligatory 4 or 5 yellows and 2 reds. If Fergy thought that the refereeing fraternity were against him before today, then it will...

    Question what if it all goes to the last game of the season ?

    Unlikely it may be but allow your imagination to conjur up a scenario where : - we have won 5 out of the next 6 and drawn the other game. - we reach the last game of the season with three clubs in contention for the sixth spot - Scunthorpe and Tranmere who play each other - and us - the...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Webb

    For 84 years Southend was a team that bounced around the lower divisions. The opening words of the official club history are: "Other teams dreamt of Wembley, some hankered for the first division championship or a place in Europe - but Southend only ever wanted second division status." We'd...

    Question What's happening?

    Perhaps it's my imagination but viewing from afar there seems to be a bit of a bad atmosphere on SZ at the moment. Of course there's always been differences of opinion, that's the nature of a discussion forum, but just lately there seems to be some real divisions. Even jolly mods and owners...

    EPL Half-Term Reports Pt1

    As the halfway point of the Premier League season approaches, we sent Iain Macintosh to compile reports cards for all the movers and the shakers. Who's the most improved student? Who deserves a merit award? Who's so bad that they're in danger of being moved to remedial class? Find out here...

    Extended highlights 'with commentary'

    I don't know whether it's my imagination, or is that the first extended highlights with commentary? Perhaps the adage 'silence is golden' could be applied? Quite honestly, do we need a commentator 'doing his nut' every time Rovers scored and adding something like "I hope it's their only...

    A Dad on the scrounge

    I know this is a bit of a cheek but my daughter is planning to go to Morroco next year to do a Charity Challenge , helping them construct a Community Center that will be used as a primary school in the day time and as a community center in the evening. At the same time they hope there will be...

    Chelsea

    You would think that, as the single most important match of their history looms up on the horizon, Chelsea might try to put a lid on the gossip and focus on the football, but nothing is ever that simple at Stamford Bridge. Faced with a choice of either (a) clarifying Avram Grant’s future or (b)...

    Manuel Neuer

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...
