  1. Is this a bet you can't lose?

    With the Euro's here, you may have noticed lots of free bet offers being given out by the bookmakers. These free bets can actually be turned into money by placing bets on all outcomes of a football match by using a method called matched betting. You can currently get an amazon kindle book for...

    Memory Lane Sheffield United v Southend United

    I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Sheffield United. We are both SUFC of course, but I certainly don't have the same feelings for Scunny. I must have been to Brammall Lane about 20 times (not all against Southend of course), my first in the late 60s, standing at the Shoreham Street end...

    Lads Can I pick your brains a second. Long story short but I always have £100 at the start of the football season I a betting account and I see what I can turn it into. One season I took £500 out of the account before losing the rest. Normally I get nothing. Last week I opened an account...

    Creepy Crawley v Stoke

    Dreadful dreadful game so far, only matched by the pathetic display of referee Mike Jones .. firstly he sent off Rory Delap for a sliding tackle (though saw fit to ignore the fact the fat fella came on the pitch to remonstrate) then to even things up he gave Stoke one of the softest penalties...

    Question Football oratory

    Seeing that the old chestnut of 'Your first ever Southend match' has turned up again, I thought that I'd try a thread that I can't remember seeing before (though I'm sure I'll be corrected by someone). Listening to the BP interviews with Martin,Timlin and Sampson, I'm sure that they will each...

    PL Weekly Points Points for Round 29

    A thoroughly disappointing night on the pitch is matched here, with davids clever use of his wildcard enough to comfortably win this time around 7 - davidovolic 4 - Staines Shrimper 4 - Dave the Shrimper 4 - davewebbsbrain 4 - sufc dave 3 - kingSHRIMPER 3 - canveyshrimper 3 - Shrimpersarmy 3 -...

    PL Weekly Points Points for Round 28

    A slump in form on the pitch is matched off it by many many players this week, indeed obe, king, Luca and the aussie shared a massive 0 points this time around, at the other end of the scale, and almost off the scale, number 11 has the caravan dwellers from across the Thames Estuary to blamefor...

    PL Cup The SZ PL Christmas Cup 2011

    Regular players will be familiar with this little sideline, but for the forgetful (:harry:) and the newbies ... As players you do nothing different, each week H will slap the fixtures up (maybe even the full compliment of 6 even !!!) and you predict as ever you would, i'll wander along over the...

    OD - Week 5

    Stumpys v ShrimperZone CC 5th v 3rd, evenly matched but we've had to rest HHH who's stuck at fresh fitness after the extended toil against Parkway. Probably makes them favourites, though I don't know what their fitness is like. A low scoring game in prospect given the pitch and weather so...
  13. Yorkshire Blue

    West Indies v Pakistan

    Really interesting series this as they should be two evenly matched (ie flawed) sides, but both are teams who look as if they finally may be ready to start making some progress now the WIndies have dropped that waster Gayle and Pakistan have purged most of the match-fixers. I think Pakistan may...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Dave Smith (2nd ballot)

    Up for election to the SZ Southend United Hall of Fame is manager Dave Smith. Smith came incredibly close last time, missing out by just 0.26%. Will he fare better at his second attempt? Here's what I wrote last time: ---------------------------------------------------- This poll is really a...

    BetFred Warning

    The free matched bet that Betfred offer is only applicable if your first bet is at evens or higher. My first bet was odds on and I wrongly assumed the first bet I made of evens or more would qualify me for a free bet, but this is apparently not the case. It’s all in subsection 4 of the very...

    Just Another Afternoon At The Match

    Today was a rare opportunity for me. With local non-league football and my lad's training wiped out by waterlogged conditions, resulting in the radio show I would have been doing to cover it all also biting the dust, popping along to the Hall became an unexpectedly pleasant compensation...

    Steve Tilson's Quoting Blunder!!

    Taken from the BBC Sport Website - Quotes of the week: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2009/12/quotes_of_the_week_5.html "They played some good football and we matched them for around 90 minutes, but it was a 10-minute spell that killed us." Steve Tilson after Southend's 3-0 defeat...
  19. Ref Watch ..... The Paint Thing

    The referee for tomorrow night's early kick off at the rather nicely appointed stadium of the rather nastily created MK Dons, is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. In just his second season as a Football League referee, he has only refereed Southend once before...
  20. Recession? Immigration? No, Women's Football!!

    The country is in a deep recession, masses remain unemployed, the National Health Service is understaffed and immigration is spiralling out of control. Forget all of that, The FA are not doing what they're told! Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe took precious time out of his schedule of claiming...
