    Anyone else notice

    Watched World cup 1966 Alfie's Boys on BBC 2 last night, and they interviewed Bobby Moore in 1986 at Roots Hall. The interview must have taken place outside the east stand (on the pitch) and you can see the North Bank and West stand where there was no roof on the North west corner. It will...

    Last ten games of post-war managers

    I know it's not an exact science, but I thought I'd have a look at post-war managers and their last ten games, for comparison with our current manager. I've given a win 3 points and a draw one point for consistency's sake. Also bear in mind that some managers were sacked and some left to bigger...

    Every man behind him was a friend

    After the totally depressing events of the Cambridge match and now Luton I thought I would like to add a more positive post. I have been helping a researcher in Accrington and I came across the following clip from the Southend Standard in 1925 about the then new Southend goalkeeper Billy Moore...

  9. Memory Lane Old Photos of Southend United.

    As I can only relive my time following Southend in my head, thank God this internet thingy came along and I can look up old videos and Photo's. I have found some great stuff and thought it would be nice to put some on here. I bought the DVD ''The Team We Call United'' two weeks ago and really...

    First ten games

    I've had a look at some former managers and how they fared in their first ten games. I took it back to Booby Moore's spell. Not including Brown's tenure, the worst start over 4 games is actually Colin Murphy with 4 straight losses. Whelan and Thompson started with 2 losses each as well. Quite...

    Biggest achievements by former and current players

    Following thread about players who have already played at Wembley - I guess this is pinnacle for most players. So which of our former and current players achieved the most in their career? (Not including managers because Moore would top the lot) I think we need a points system to find out who...

    Record FA Cup goalscorer

    The legend that is BBBC notched his 6th FA Cup goal for the club tonight (and in just 5+2 FA Cup appearances). Where does this put him in the all-time FA Cup scorers list for SUFC? I expect Billy Best is top courtesy of the Kings Lynn and Brentwood Cup games with Gary Moore probably in second...
