  8. Latest Rumours Mark Gower

    Mark Gower popped into where I work on Monday (5 mins away from Boots & Laces so was a bit suspicious, although the team are abroad in Spain!) Instantly recognised him before asking his name. Started speaking about football and he said he's without a club after leaving Charlton. Asked him...

    Charlton v M'boro and the ex-Blues contingent

    We went to Charlton v Middlesbrough on Saturday and was amazed at the number of Blues on show. Middlesbrough had ex loanee George Friend playing at left back, he is a classy full back as he was on his brief stint here. Charlton was like a mini Southend's finest XI They had Dorian Dervitte...

    Latest Rumours Mark Gower to return as player/coach?

    He has apparently bought a house in Upminster and the rumour I've heard is that he might return to the club as a player/coach. Can't disclose the source, but the rumour has come from a Swansea source, not a Southend one. Could happen in January.

    Random musings on our signings so far

    It's a small sample size but all three signings are League Two players. No fringe players dropping down from higher leagues in search of regular football. No non-league stars looking to better themselves. No past-it pros hanging on for one last pay day. All sideways moves from players in their...

    SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame - Nominations round 8

    ...The SZ Hall of Fame? Last time we did a round of nominations was August/Sept, and I think Dave Smith made it in. And I'm pretty sure Mark Gower now qualifies to be nominated. Also we seem to have lost the Hall of Fame page from the front of the website? Unless I'm being blind.
