    The Green Man Pub Today

    I know they must be used to big crowds but the set up was immense. To take in about 5000 fans with nobody really waiting to be served by the inside and outside bars and the food choices they put out around the venue was simply superb. Fantastic to see so many Shrimper Fans there and for PS to...

    Pre-Match Thread Bradford v Southend

    So he's finally here and Friday's trip to Bradford will be the man from Del Monte's first game in charge. Some of our posters will be more aware of Brown's style of play, preferred tactics and formations, so what team would you expect/like to see? Can anyone see recalls for BBBC, Smith or...
  3. Question Are ,Eastwood and Harris that bad?

  4. Sgorio

    Is a Welsh language footie programme shown . It's normally on Mondays @ 10.00 & I get it via Virgin Channel 167 (S4C). I find myself strangely drawn to this show with a mix of pot-bellied keepers ex football league players & pitches that premier league players would'nt park their cars on (As...

    Five games in february

    When Luggy spoke about our JPT first-leg at Orient, he talked about the need to stay in the tie. Well, one could well speak of our next five league fixtures in February as games to keep our automatic promotion hopes alive. A series of poor results and we could find ourselves fighting just to be...
  6. Small things that make you smile...

    Just the minutiae of life.... 1) Putting on new socks for the first time. 2) Opening a new coffee jar and breaking the seal. 3) (Back in the day) creating a new mix tape on C90 and listening to it for the first time. You? :dim:

    Free stuff.

    I have just been handed a large box of McVities breakfast biscuits whilst walking past Bank station. Free samples have been a bit thin on the ground lately. Has anyone received anything decent recently? My best result was five cans of pre mix gin and tonics from Liverpool Street about ten...

    Could this be our year?

    Was thinking ahead of last nights game and the similarity between this and last season. Last season we were top of the league, then lost out to Swindon at this stage of the JPT and surely missing out on Wembley (certain we would have beaten Barnet over 2 legs). Last season we should have...

    HK Ferry Crash

    Woke this morning to hear this 36 dead so far. Yesterday was a national holiday culminating in a firework display that was breathtaking. 25 minutes and just when you thought it can't get any better they kept coming bigger and better. Some of these people were on their way to it. The ferries...

    Laugh. Out. Loud

    Thats quite funny. It ends with "Chief of police in Hvolsvöllur Sveinn K. Rúnarsson told mbl.is that the woman simply "had no idea that she was missing.

    The Accrington Fans

    Unlike a lot of shrimpers the Accrington board seems full of confidence:- ''hope I am not getting ahead of myself, but I can’t remember the last time I felt so positive heading into a new season. Things behind the scenes seemed to be more professional and organised than ever before. The team...

    Musical input welcome, but not necessarily going to be acted upon!

    So, as some of you know, I will be tying the knot again in October, and we've been set the task of coming up with some music to have playing in the background both for the ceremony and during the meal. We've managed to sort out the music for earlier on, and are part way through stuff for while...

    Drama of last few games a historical perspective

    How many seasons have been decided on the last few games of the season and/or also decided on other teams for our place for the following season? In 1931/2, we had our best ever season to date, with 2 games left we were 3 points below Reading and Fulham. That week, Southend beat Torquay, but...

    Carlton Leach autobiogrpahy

    Just read the above. Interesting I suppose for those who like gang violence, nightclub security, and reading about West Ham hooliganism. But the best part is all about his mate Dave Martin. Yes, the Dave Martin. Carlton's wife knew Martin's wife and they became friends. This was when Dave...

    Complete contrasts: what's your experience?

    Tomorrow courtesy of some corporate thing I am off to the Emirates to see Arsenal v Man City. Top of the Premiershite stuff with two clubs who have everything to play for, and putting the overpaid egotistical attitudes of the players to one side, a game packed full of players with immense...

    Question Another season in the same league as Morecambe ?

    If we concede that Swindon are now likely to finish above us, we are still in the mix for second place. It is almost impossible to imagine that we will drop below 7th place, given the remaining fixtures with Port Vale, for example, facing tough trips to most of the top sides. But if we...
  18. Pre-Match Thread Morecambe v Southend United

    After the defeat at Aldershot P.S. has STATED he is making changes ! This is how I see it. Goal: Bentley: Instruction. Mix kicking with quick thro. Looking for your right back and central midfielder that will be looking for the ball from you. while being aware of our 2 wingers who will...
  19. Where in the World, have you worn your colours?

    Having read the post about a Southend fan spotted wearing his colours at the Barbican, I thought I'd ask where is the best or worst place you have worn something with Southend, SUFC or Shrimpers on? When they weren't even playing there of course. So, best or worst or both. My best place was...

    The True Warrior

    I am genuinely excited to see Southend’s response to our first loss in 17 games. I believe the next 5 games will tell us an awful lot about the character we have in the squad. It goes without saying that a 17 game unbeaten run displays the true quality of the team but I believe the next 5 games...
