    OD - Week 2

    We play the team that beat us in Week 13 last season to sod up my promotion hopes. A quick scan of their squad shows a top 11 of: Sublime x3 Energetic x2 Invigorated x2 Lively x1 Fair x1 Low x2 They've played a full strength squad every game and it's showing. We're looking spritely with 6...

    Uncle Ron On The Mic Mike?? Mic.

    Wasn't at the game due to being strapped to my desk in a rather uninspiring part of Milton Keynes but I'd be curious to know what Uncle Ron had to say before the game today.

    Reserves and Under-18s

    Southend United's Under-18 side slipped to a second successive defeat, ironically enough at Gillingham yesterday. You can read a report of the match on the Shrimpers Trust website, by clicking: Gillingham U18s 4 Southend United U18s 1 Richard Priest scored the Shrimpers' only goal of the game...

Sierra Leone born Jarrett was released by the Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd at the end of last season, following the Hornets relegation from...

  7. Car crashes

    This has reminded me after mentioning my old first car earlier,of a few horredous accidents in my youth. The worst being... I had a Jaguar XJ6 at the age of 20...I was doing well ....a few lads and I went to a Wine bar in Milton Road down by the Cricketers...The name escapes me now ...In those...

    What on earth do we want?

    It's a tall order now. We MUST win both games and hope Leeds and Hull both collect no more than 1 point each from their last 2 matches. Possible, but unlikely. But apart from a probable relegation, I fear that as fans we are going to make ourselves a laughing stock of the entire football...

    Those going to Ipswich - I beg you.

    Last few away games the atmosphre has been superb. I really think we can be the 12th man....Especially as we are away and the bulk of us are probably people that want to get behind the lads. Lets be loud and proud Saturday. At Sheff Wed I beleive even Ldn Fatso sang once and he has the worst...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 3

    "There will be no stadium at Fossetts Farm and the future of the football club remains at Roots Hall." A year after being ousted from position of chairman at Southend United, John Main returned to warn fans that a new stadium was merely a pipe-dream. His words, posted on a Southend United...
  13. Anyone out there?

    Moved up to Milton Keynes 'bout two years ago, would be very interested to know if there are any other blues fans living in or around the area. My love affair with the blues started in 1984 and there has been a member of my family supporting SUFC since 1921. My old man has been going to...

    Eastwood and Paynter

    Surely, the Eastwood and Payner partnership should be given much more time to develop. It is a match made in the heavens (literally). Freddy was born on 29 October, and is a Scorpio, and Billy on 13 July, and has the astrological sign of Cancer. I paraphrase the website of Australia's...

    Todays Tip

    Gift Horse Dandy Nicholls has a fine record with his sprinters and this one looks to have a great chance and offers good value at around 11/1. Most of the runners have faced one another in numerous other sprint races this year and over the years, so this selection is due a win. The danger can...
