    Southend top of the league!! Messages 1 - 8 of 8 Message 1 - posted by Papa_DAmour**, 47 Minutes Ago Get in you blues!! Three goals from defenders as well - even Sodje scored (!) what a great result for the Shrimpers! Looks like the other results were kind to...

    From the SUSCT Liaison Meeting

    "BW said that he had recently read the new Blues News magazine and said that it needed proof reading as there were lots of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors as well as problems with presentation. GK said that it wasn’t a club issue but was concerned that there was a lot of stock...
  3. Silkmen in Dire Straits!

    The FA sh!t On Macc By Gary J Date: 19/12/2005 Sorry about the language in the heading but that is what they have well and truly done. The club need to find £300,000 in six weeks. For a club of our size and with our attendances the FA have well and truly shafted us BIG STYLE. I spoke to a...

    Not good enough by far

    sorry lad's and ladettes.. worse than saturday, well maher was anyway.. to be fair the set pieces were better but he gave it away too many times, sorry he has to GO! Smith played well, Goater was much better and prior made mistakes again.. JCR much better tonight
  5. Liability

    Kevin Maher should be replaced for the next match, his set pieces and passing today were absoloutley shambolic. And I know people will say 'top 3 in assists last year blah blah' but last season doesn't count for anything right now and today I don't think he found a single blue...
  6. Todays Summary

    I read in the echo earlier this week, Gower was pleading "Give me time to come good". Now i know i'm just waiting for the other 9 or 10 players on the pitch to join him. Gower gave it his all for the 70 minutes he played today and showed some promise as a more than capable winger...
  7. Emergency stopper?

    I haven't seen either of Bart's performances but a couple of things concern me. Firstly he's been rushed back from injury and is liable to aggreviate the existing hip problem. In addition to this, we don't have any cover, should he get injured. The final point may sound...
  8. The Usual Suspects

    Barrett, Guttridge, Cole... Were all immense today. Guttridge has been a revelation ever since the season started IMO, has proven to be one of the best bits of business ive seen the club do in recent years, along with Cole and Eastwood. Its nice to have a winger, Mitchell Cole, who can attack...

    the sufcintheprem views and ratingsSmith

    I was very unsure what to expect today against an Oldham side who had made a decent start to the season but I knew little about. By chance, I ended up going to the game with an Oldham fan who was visiting a mate of mine but from his dramtic reactions, it was difficult to get much information out...

    Matthew Tipton

    Tipton after his Bury debut "We are five game's in and Southend didn't win a game for six games yet they were the best team last season. We have a good set of lads and we have to cut out the mistakes, we will be ok and we will do all right this season."
  11. Front page article on the fixtures

    Napster, I think you'll find your on another planet son! There are quite afew mistakes in that article. "This is our first season in League One, or the 3rd Division as I prefer." - Dont you mean 2nd Division? "Aaah, well, the last time we were in this division, we...
  12. Next Season's Programme

    The design has been set for this season's programme and mistakes from last season have now been learnt. However, I'm throwing the floor out to everyone about what they'd like to see more of in this seasons programme, what they'd like to see included and any new ideas people...

    Expectations this season

    It'll be interesting to go back to this thread at the end of the season (well for me anyway). Last season (my first) I finished 4th and made plenty of mistakes along the way. It's going to be a tough division this year with the team finishing 2nd fighting for the title with the team...
  14. Calderwood Confident

    Colin Calderwood has warned play-off opponents Southend that Northampton are a much stronger outfit than they were the last time the sides met. The Cobblers lost both league games against the Shrimpers this season, as well as an LDV Vans Trophy clash, but the former Scotland international is...

    What a game!

    Fantastic game and a solid performance from every player! Nicky Nicolau definitely my man of the match, but Lewis Hunt was simply outstanding too! Nicolau's best game for the club tonight without a doubt, along with Hunt! Every player can be proud of this game tonight! A...
