  1. worst supporters in Britain

    Have we the worst home support in the country (can not bear to call them supporters) I think so. Why do we play so well away? Well simple, the players past and present loose all confidence at home frightened to shoot, to pass and beat opposing players because of a hardcore element who spend the...
  2. Tilson's Gift: Contacting Players

    Perhaps a mod could sticky this? Below is a list of players that played under Steve Tilson during his tenure as manager here. I've left out loanees and a choice few players (i.e. Ricketts, Foran), however if I've missed anyone let me know and I'll add them. What we're asking for is a short...

    Past Meetings

    Thought I'd start something new and re-visit a classic match against our opponents. Starting with this weekends visit against Bristol Rovers. We re-visit 15th February 2005, LDV Vans Trophy Southern Final 1st leg Bristol Rovers 1 Southend United 2 This game would be best remembered...
  8. What do you want from a wide man?

    I cant believe all of the stick that Scannell gets from some people on here, the guy came off the bench today and assisted in the scoring of both of our goals, he was also instrumental in our second half comeback against Hartlepool a few weeks ago and was probably our best player going forward...
  9. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 2 (2005-2009)

    1st April 2005: Southend United 2 – 0 Bristol Rovers (League Two) The second half of the decade began with our beloved Shrimpers surging up the league on the back of a series of virtuoso performances from new signing Freddy Eastwood. From the second week of January we went on a long unbeaten run...
  10. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 1 (2000-2004)

    As we've had our last game of the decade, I had planned to do something about the top twenty matches of the ten years just gone but I found it very difficult to leave some matches out, plus in truth it's some of the defeats which have stuck with me the most. And rather than doing a countdown I...

    loan signings

    It seems following comments from within the club hat we will be getting 2/3 loans in next week, my question is what positions would people like to see strengthened, I pesonally would love to see a left back and a really pacy winger come in, right wing as I think moooooooooooooooooooooos is...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    Ron's Blog 3/7/09

    Chairman's Blog I promised to let you have my thoughts upon my “likes and dislikes of the football industry”. I can sum this up in one four letter word beginning with f… yes you’ve got it FANS! My immediate thought is that the most likeable part of football is winning. However on reflection...

    Bug thank you to Tillys Prodical Son

    Just wanted to say a big public thanks to Tillys prodical son for the fantastic signature thing that he kindly designed me. For those of you that are in the know its Ldn Fasto praying to a higher god, a sexual guru if you will (eg myself) for forgiveness for driving Mark Gower away. A top guy...

    Chairman's Blog 12th May

    Chairman's Blog I believe I have now answered all those questions – either singularly or combined – that have been sent to the Club’s media department. There were one or two “stragglers” but these points were covered in earlier responses. I have yet to come to a...

    My end of season review.

    I was asked to write a review for college about a subject that inspired me, I didn't necessarily have to talk about how it inspired me but I just had to compile a 2000 word essay. So I chose to do a season review. Well here we are at the end of another season, although in the end we can feel...

    Where did it all go wrong?

    Nobody could disagree that Southend's 2008-09 season went wrong over the Christmas season when the Blues only won 4 games out of 19 from November to January. However after that bad spell the Blues form improved and there was a serious possibility that with a bit of luck and some good form that...
  19. Rons Blog 07.04.09

    Firstly let me apologise for last week’s “void”. It was my intention to answer the questions raised over a period of two to three weeks and at the end of that period to review whether supporters generally thought it was a good idea to continue with a blog – be it weekly, fortnightly or not at...
  20. Chairman's Blog - 24th March

    Chairman's Blog As promised the Club’s media department has sifted through all the emails received to date and amalgamated these into the most frequently asked questions including some unusual ones. I am told that some of the emails have been paraphrased but I am sure they include the gist. I...
