    Have you been to Scunthorpe before?

    So have you been to Scunthorpe before? Perhaps you were there last November in the Cup? Or on our first visit to the Old Show Ground in 1964? What are your memories? My two outstanding memories are quite obscure matches: Tuesday 7th October 1969 Scunny 2-0 Southend We had a lift to...
  2. Pre-Match Thread Scunthorpe Utd V Southend Utd

    Ok, So here it is... "Honours Even" so to speak.... We beat them 2-1 at Roots Hall in September (Blimey..It feels so long ago now personally). Then we travelled to Glanford Park in November for the FA Cup match, and lost 1-2. So, my question is this, what difference can we bring to this...

    Shewsbury's worst defeat since 1964

    Looking on BBC Football and Shrewsbury playing at Cardiff the preview says they "have made four new signings since the 7-2 defeat at Chesterfield - the club's worst loss since 1964". That rang a bell and yes...... Saturday 4th April 1964 Southend United 7-1 Shrewsbury Town Goalscorers: Bobby...
  5. Playing Like Individuals ;

    Southend United manager Phil Brown has said his team are playing like individuals following their second heavy loss at home in a row. The Shrimpers followed up the 4-0 loss to Millwall on 28 December with a 3-0 reverse against Doncaster on Saturday. "I'm disappointed with the group mentality...
  6. Peter Butler - Happy to be alive....

    .... Just seen this on Butts' Twitter timeline. Mali hotel attack: '170 hostages seized' in Bamako - I'll take the 2-0 loss and keep my life I'm so lucky http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-34877069 … Luckiest man alive today Radisdon blue hotel Mali attached by militants day after we left...

    Former youth player started in Arsenal's loss at Sheff Weds tonight.
  8. Ref Watch ....... Port Vale H

    We've played Port Vale a lot over the years as when they weren't in the old Division Two, they found themselves in Division Three South. They have a slightly better record than us overall and the last three Roots Hall clashes have resulted in one win, one loss and a draw. Man in charge at Roots...

    Pre-Match Thread Burton Albion v Southend United

    Well, we have played Burton a few times in the last few years .......... that 1-0 win with Freddy scoring at the end of the game and the 1-0 loss in the play-offs where the rain and the time wasting tactics were the main features come to mind. Same team again for this game? It's been a while...
  10. Local loyalty-what a joke!

    I've just been reading that Bentley has refused to sign a new,longer contract,something that would have bumped up his wages now and given him definite security,in the event of serious injury or loss of form.Much more important it would have enabled our club to receive a much,much larger transfer...

    Latest Rumours Coker to Ipswich

    On the Ipswich Town forum that they are about to make a bid for Ben coker. Hope there is no truth in it as he is class and would be a huge loss

    WEMBLEY - AN UGLY SITUATION yes yet another short story

    Love them or hate them it's another one of my yarns from years gone by. All the facts are true, many did travel to Wembley for the first Cup -Final. Only the names have been changed etc, WEMBLEY – AN UGLY SITATION There was no television in 1923, and therefore there was not an abundance of...

    Play Off Final DVD - My Own Version

    I've been experimenting with a Dazzle. I've started with the first period of extra time, and have copied that onto my PC from the Sky box. On the PC the quality seems to be quite good, even if it’s not the HD quality it was originally recorded in. Part of the reason for that is because I used a...
  14. Southend United 2015-16 season (according to FM)

    Just for a bit of fun, I downloaded an update which include promotions & relegations, manager changes etc. for the coming season for Football Manager. As an another debating point, I left Corr in the team to see if he is up to League 1. So lets see how Brown and the boys get on. July After...
  15. Another mathematical prediction...

    For stats nerds. I decided to do a simulation of the remaining games. My simulation is simple and limited, for now. I use the season form of each team (probability of a win, draw or loss) to simulate the outcome of all remaining fixtures. I then ran the simulation 10,000 times to work out a...

    Breaking News New Fanthesis Predictor.

    I admit first this should not be in this forum, but we need to do this people.. The demise of the BBC end of season Predictor is IMO a great loss. There are a few Prem ones out there but zzz. We have some very bright people on here who design websites etc ( Chapperz I am looking at you...
  17. Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Wycombe Wanderers

    Im wondering how much of a loss Matt McClure's straight red card & sending off last night will be for Wycombe. Im thinking not so big as they only bought him on the field on 67 minutes, but on the other hand, is their 4th highest scorer with 5 goals.

    Came across a summary of the 2009 AGM (which was possibly the last one we had ?!? :whistling: ). Points that interested me were ; Ron still keen to get the work started on site at FF in November Total spend on FF down to £35m (materials/labour now cheaper) Ron not happy with Echo, and Chris...

    "Puts Football in Perspective"

    What does this phrase mean to you? It's something that is often said when a person linked to the game dies. All of us feel a sense of loss and maybe even shock if the person is young. But what does it really mean to you? Do you really think about its meaning? For example, if an event really...
