    My friendly invasion - Its was all big Bill Garners fault!

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday. The reason for me being prostrate on this beautiful Sunday was I was watching a one day match between Essex and it could have been Warwickshire or...

    All-time Southend comedy XI

    As mentioned on the Rob Kiernan saga thread, Phil Gridelet's career may well have been a piece of performance art. He's going to be my captain in my all-time Southend comedy XI. Who have I missed? GK Mel Capelton - Mel holds off professional funnyman Terry Alderton for this role with his...
  3. Stephen Hunt on Phil Brown ;

    Now manager of League One side Southend, Phil Brown was once thought of as one of those up and coming English managers who might one day take the helm of their national side. Just like him emerging tanned for a third tier game against Rochdale in mid-January, Brown's self-regard has never been...

    The atmosphere at roots hall

    Sometimes good and sometime not so good, but yesterday second half it was terrific. Even before ranger scored the crowd noise was increasing. By the time cox scores the winner it's reached rediculous. The West yesterday was as loud as it's been since col u last season season. Not sure what...
  5. The positives of our supporters

    I thought the guys at the back of the North Stand (TBV, I assume) were absolutely fantastic yesterday. They had a wide variety of songs that was constant throughout the whole 90 mins. I was in E1 and the majority of the songs we could hear loud and clear, which enabled us to join in, and create...

    The volume... and a question.

    After 121 minutes of the match yesterday, I and many others thought that here we are again and have failed to score at Wembley. We also didn't score at the Milstad in either LDV finals and the play off game v Lincoln we had to wait until extra time before sealing that one... and our smallest...

    Hey everybody!

    Hello I have been a quiet member of the forum for a few months now, and suddenly realised I have never posted anything, so no better place than this thread to start! I was born in Southend to a familys-worth of SUFC fans (Mum, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Grandparents etc) and have been an avid...

    Wembley Athmosphere Lets get it right

    Super support at the hall last night now we need to recreate it at Wembley. My aim by posting this is lets don't just make it a day out lets make loads of noise. When we were at Wembley for the Paint Trophy the thing that grated with me the most more so than the result was how quiet we were with...

    The Roots Hall 'roar'

    So yesterday I finally moved in to my house. Long time coming, only minutes from the ground yet no chance of attending today. Way too soon after moving in, with so much to do (said the mrs). No point even mentioning it to her (though I still did). New area, new life and 'new' local football...
  14. The Blue Voice Moan

    Not to start an age old argument off but I have to make a comment....... Do they think they are Ultras from turkey? Standing on chairs at the front with their backs to the game shouting at people to sing when everyone was. Your an embarrassment. You sing terrible songs half the game as well...

  16. 90 minutes effort today

    No, I don't mean the players, I take that as a given, or should. I mean us lot, TBV, W block, East Stand, Family area, South Upper, South Lower. It looks like we're going to have a decent crowd today and we hear so much on here about how everyone wants out of this division so let's give it...

  18. Bristol Rovers new stadium!

    First post so please be gentle! Southend fan living in Bristol and after today's high court ruling that rovers can go ahead and build their new stadium thanks to the help of Sainsbury's, I'm now very worried about tomorrow nights match! Expect a celebratory crowd at the memorial! It's going to...
  19. Bluuuueee Arrrrmmmmy v Hull !!!

    Can I suggest we encourage everybody to wear blue on Saturday (as opposed to wearing our away shirt - for obvious reasons). It would be fantastic for our lads to see three sides of the stadium covered in a sea of blue as they enter the field of play. ...and to all the youngsters out there...
