    ...and we moan about going to Carlisle...

    In Russia, , FC Luch-Energiya are based in Vladivostok, a mere 12-hour flight from Zenit St Petersburg. Three Zenit fans embarked on the frankly ludicrous 5,963-mile road-trip to the east coast of Russia in 2006, only for the car to break down before they could make their return journey. Zenit...
  2. God getting to The Hall (from Suffolk) gonna be a nightmare

    For those who like me are going from Suffolk It seems the A12 will be closed at kelvdon .And according to the papers there is a 22 mile detour .Though Braintree and Chelmsford .I know a couple use that road so does anyone know of a different way around it .

    Curtis Hanson

    Guted to hear he has died, aged 71. Directed and adapted (and won an oscar for adapting) one of my all time favourite films, LA Confidential. Also directed 8 Mile and The Hand that Rocks the Cradle.

    SZ Player of the Season 2015-16

    As mentioned elsewhere, it seems there will be no player of the season presentation at our final home game on Saturday, and it will instead be at the end of season gala dinner. So who gets your vote? For me, it's got to be Jack Payne. The most entertaining player by a mile this season, and has...
  5. The Future Looks Bright.

    No, not the new stadium, forget about all that nonsense. SUFC under-15s not only won the tournament and trophy in Berlin in Germany, but won all seven matches, and without conceding a single goal. They beat Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 in the final. Absolutely superb from the young lads...

    Half Time Snack Shop South Stand

    What a joke at the snack shop at the South Stand today. Queue a mile long, ran out of hot chocolate, ran out of hot water and I saw one of the women chuck a bowl of what I can only assume was Luke warm tap water into the water heater and then continue to make drinks with it! Would not be...

    Phil Brown's current record

    As of last night and based on Peter Mile's working out The top ten records are: Southend United Managers League games only, until the end of the 2011/12 campaign. Points changed to three for a win under Dave Smith’s reign in 1982/83. Ratio is calculated as number of points accummulated...

    Parking/driving to wembley

    Having been to Wembley many times I have always used the train. This time, with two young children and an uncle with bad arthritis I have decided to drive. Someone recommended a site called Justpark and I have found a residential address with very positive reviews approx 1/2 mile from the ground...

    London Marathon

    Good running wishes to El Tango, Mr Phil Brown for his 26.2 mile debut around London. I am sure he will start at the VIP start and be interviewed on his way around. Will he beat Gordon Ramsey? unlikely as Gordon is younger and experienced at this. Also making his VLM debut is Ricey; running for...

    Bolger, what a player!

    Think back early this season, Luton away ironically. Most would say that guy wasn't worth a penny and shouldn't play for us again and now look at him! The change in his game is nothing short of fantastic, admittedly super Adam Barrett has helped his progress and confidence but hats must go off...
  11. Ref Watch ....... Exeter A

    Not a lot to say about Saturday's referee. He is first year League referee, Darren Handley from Bolton who made it on to the League list after 6 years of Conference officiating. He is 37 and a PE teacher at Tottington High School. His 25 matches this season have produced a just slightly above...
  12. Bikers heading to Southend

    The 17th annual Southend biker Shakedown will depart from The Ace Cafe Stonebridge, in north-west London, at 10.30am. The fundraiser will see hundreds of bikers arrive at Southend seafront for a family-focused day out. Now the trouble with this is that it raises thousands for mainly childrens...

    Pre-Match Thread Tranmere Rovers v Southend United

    Living in North Wales so easy 20 mile trip for us to Prenton Park tomorrow. Good luck to Southend fans making the long journey. No idea of team to play but Tranmere are an improving side and this will be tough. I feel it will be a draw but obviously hoping for a win. Weather has been awful up...

    London to Southend Bike Ride

    Hello all, I'm doing the London to Southend bike ride on Sunday this is a 52 mile ride. This would be a big achievement for me because I only started cycling again about 9 months ago after about 6 years when I wasn't able to ride (or do much else tbh) due to knee and back problems. In that...

    Soma Mine disaster

    200+ miners killed in a mile deep coal mining collapse in Turkey. For a town where mining is the job then the deaths and sorrow of the whole community must be overpowering. To be a mile under ground, trapped while the tunnel collapses and the oxygen runs out must be horrific. Cheaply mined coal...

    Life Expectancy of a Southend United fan - by BBC Newsnight.

    According to a survey published on the BBC - Southend United fans are in a Championship position. we can expect to live for 76.38 years. It is of course a load of cobblers as it is based on life expectancy in the area yet Nottingham Forest are 10th in the entire living league while Notts County...

    Joel Ward

    This guy has been superb all season for Palace. Can play left back, right back and midfield, all whilst making it look like he's been playing there for years. I remember watching the Palace vs Chelsea game where he stood out as the best player on the pitch by a country mile. Spoke to a mate at...

    Southend United v Rochdale

    Don't know whether it was the BBC match highlights or, as labled, the SUFC Official match highlights....don't suppose it matters. Two good goals and some heroic defending from Prosser, he's now been concussed as many times as goals he's scored! If there was a bravery medal in the Southend United...

    Off to see Tes today

    Not gonna be able to make it to Chesterfield today but instead will get in a more local trip as Tes Bramble has turned up at Hadleigh United (in Suffolk) - at home in the FA Vase today - so only a mile to walk to a match for a change. He's played a few already and scoring shed loads fresh out of...
