  1. Brown on 5 Live after 5pm (ish)

    When asked about the Bolton job he replied along these lines: I've been at Southend for three years now. I got them promoted which I was asked to do. I hoped to get promotion this season but it seems to have slipped away. We have a big game on Wednesday. We'll see what happens at the end...

    It's time for my reality check

    The season to date has been about unexpected highs and predictable lows. We got promoted by taking the last (4th) promotion place, doing so with a fairy tale ending at Wembley. That sort of finish to the season has tended to cloud our reality genes and we therefore believe we can do it again...
  3. Mason Wells

    Blimey ! Mason was near the finish line when the Boston bomb exploded,he was in Paris near the terrorist atrocities ,he was injured in Belgium by the blast. Lucky or unlucky ?

    Next season.....

    Wether we pull off the unlikely play off spot or not we have had a great season back in league 1. Obviously we will all want to improve on this seasons finish but with the potential of losing the manager and a few key players it will be hard. We have averaged around 7k this season which is...
  5. We are staying up!!!!

    We now have the magic 55 points. No team has ever been relegated on 55 points or more (we were relegated on 54 points in 1989) so time to start celebrating. At the start of the season I don't think any Southend fan could have expected anything more than a relegation struggle but here we are...

    Next Saturday could be "Lets all laugh at Col Ewe" day?

    Yes folks, next Saturday could be the day that Col Ewe can't mathematically catch our points tally. They currently have 10 matches left and 28 points so mathematically they could get 58 points. We currently have 54 points, also with 10 matches left. So a win for us and a draw or defeat for...

    ECL Wildcards

    So the president of Barcalona wants top clubs who fail to qualify for the Champions' League to be given wildcards like in tennis: BBC What an idiot. Apart from the obvious: that this is moving further and further away from a Champions' League, he seems to have completely missed the point of...
  8. Sorry to bore you all.....

    ....but Chris Phillips has tweeted that RM will be making a further announcement very shortly regarding the stadium project INCLUDING PROGRESS MADE WITH BRITISH LAND AND THE COUNCIL - whoopeeda.
  9. Working mothers.

    Much like the old man thread what did/does your mother do for a living? My old dear was Spanish and she spoke English like a french cow and worked as a machinist on canvey and then worked at matchbox in Rochford

    Question Paignton

    Has anyone ever been to Paignton in Devon Mrs DtS and I are off to the Algarve in the summer and now we are thinking we might have a few days of British "Sunshine" in August too and we somehow seem to have come up with Paignton in Devon as it has a beach, zoo and waterpark. Anyone got any...
  11. Bandwidth consumption to listen to Blues Player commentary?

    A quick question which a techy person may be able to answer. Does anyone have a rough idea of how much bandwidth would be consumed by listening to a full Blues Player match commentary? We've just moved to a remote-ish part of Ireland, and are waiting for fixed line broadband to be installed...

    Tea Bars in the West

    When I got in the ground yesterday about 2.20ish there was a long queue for food and drink, but they had also opened a tea bar at the back of X block which was very quiet. However when people in W block tried to go to this tea bar they were turned back by the stewards as their tickets weren't...

    If you want to save a few quid (literally)

    I was walking down the high street past Bargain Buys on the corner of Cliff Town Road yesterday. In their window they had large boxes of Finish PowerBall dishwasher tablets, 110 tablets for £8 (Tesco currently charge £8 for 38). That is a pretty hefty saving compared with mainstream Super...

    Latest Rumours Noel Hunt to Dundee United on loan

    According to CP, he's had a call from a Scottish reporter. Surely just a rumour and nothing more? They may well target him but can't see us letting him go.

    Journey home

    After the game last night I got a bus home from Fairfax Drive and unfortunately their was a well known fan who shall we saw is not the whole ticket. He was shouting out that Tilson and Brown were the worst Southend managers ever, while he thought Fry and Whelen were very sociable. He had...

    Williams and Bridge to Chelmsford

    On loan, bit of a surprise that Williams is going back there. Thought they might try him at a higher level. I suppose they can't if there is no interest. He will no doubt be released at the end of the season.

    Blackpool trip on 2 April - B&B's etc

    Dear All, I am planning for Blackpool on 2 April to be my 92nd ground and a group of about a dozen of us (all blokes aged 30 - 50 ish, only two Southend fans amongst them) will be going up for the weekend (nights of Fri 1st and Sat 2nd April) to mark the occasion (just an excuse for a few beers...

    TV Presenters that get right up your nose

    Not a difficult subject, we all probably have one or two which make you reach for the remote and banish them out of your life. I'll start with my most hated..........Nicky Campbell. If he appears he just has to immediately go, regardless of topic. Illogical but I just can't help it.

    The January transfer window

    We came up well short today of the standard required to get out of this league. The players have performed above themselves to get to this point in 7th place. We have Glen Rea and Joel piggot on loan. Thanks for the goal pig but you are out of your depth. I'm not sure why we need glen Rea. He...
