  1. Ref Watch ..... Bury A

    We lead Bury by some way in head-to-head League matches - 19 wins to their 11 with 13 draws. We're back to the inexperienced officials this mid-week with tomorrow's match being refereed by Martin Coy of County Durham who takes charge of Southend for the second time in this his first season...
  2. Ref Watch ...... Scunthorpe A

    We trail Scunthorpe by some way in head-to-head League matches - 15 wins to their 22 with 15 draws. This is largely down to our results at their two grounds where our 27 matches (incl one Cup game) have yielded meagre pickings with just two wins and a handful of draws (including one when I saw...
  3. Southend v Oldham review and a trip to Shropshire

    Hi guys, Here is our latest podcast where we look at your win over Oldham and round up the FA Cup games http://d3d4football.com/d3d4-football-podcast-episode-21-fa-cup-2nd-round-review/ Also here is a great piece about a Morecambe fans trip to shrewsbury...
  4. 3 points on the road and a trip to FGR

    Hi guys, We discuss the first defeat for Shrewsbury, awful goal music and your win at Walsall in our latest podcast http://d3d4football.com/d3d4-football-podcast-episode-16-week-16-review/ Also have a read of this wonderful account of a Morecambe fan's trip to Forest Green, certainly a club...

    "And We Will Be ..... in Shrews-bury"

    So, per the club website 1,000 tickets go on sale tomorrow with priority for season ticket holders for one week. No mention of other tickets being available if needed but the North Stand where we will be has a 1,796 capacity per the STFC website. So, should be plenty for all, but if we are up...

    Barry Corr

    Played his first game of the season today for Cambridge United away at Morecambe. Came on as sub and played 33 minutes.
  7. Ref Watch .... Rochdale H

    We have a good record against Rochdale at home; their last win here was over 30 years ago and other than a good spell they had in the late 60s, early 70s when they won three in a row, we've had by far the better of things. We even recovered from a 3-0 half-time deficit 17 years ago. Anyway, on...
  8. Who would you prefer in the Football League?

    Alright, they wouldn't be in the same league as us, (unless we suffer greatly), but who would you like to see join the Football League in May? Looking quite tight at the top, with only 6 points separating 1st - 5th. We'll stick to the current top 10... 1. Lincoln - 55pts ------------------ 2...
  9. Ref Watch ....... Bury A

    In charge of tomorrow's tricky looking fixture is Richard Clark from South Broomhill in Morpeth, Northumberland. Morpeth were, of course, the team that deprived Bowers and Pitsea of a Wembley appearance in the FA Vase last year by the narrowest of narrow margins in the two legged semi-final...
  10. Ref Watch ..... Leyton Orient H

    Checkatrade - where reputation matters If it mattered that much surely they wouldn't be sponsoring this wretched competition. The referee for tomorrow's match is the very experienced Andy Woolmer from Northampton. This short referee with even shorter hair had the capacity to be slightly...
  11. FourFourTwo's Predictions

    Already posted their League One table prediction, here's the rest... Premier League Champions: Manchester City Relegation: Watford, Hull, Burnley Championship Champions: Newcastle 2nd: Derby Play-Offs: Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday, Brighton, Birmingham Relegation: Blackburn, Burton...

    Happy birthday to...

    Colchester and Proud. An amiable if misguided individual...but be kind on him, he's about to suffer the ignominy of a drop into the League of misery and a battle to keep out of the Conference....we all know the sheep fondlers are drawn to that league like "PJS" and "YMA" to a High court...

    Poor BBC Journalism

    I was just catching up on League Two football (as you do as passing interest now) and I was reading about Morecambe's last ditch equalizer again Pompey last night on the BBC website. Spot the shoddy journalism! I know we can never beat the team from Lancashire but that doesn't mean they can use...
  14. Ref Watch ..... Bristol Rovers H JPT

    Our last five home matches against Bristol Rovers have seen two wins and three draws, a good record to keep going! The referee for tomorrow's match is the very experienced Andy Woolmer from Northampton. This short referee with even shorter hair had the capacity to be slightly officious but he...

    Next 4 games are rather tough

    Well, it doesn't get an easier - I'm liking this league and am so glad not to be playing Morecambe (they have scored 28 goals this season compared with our 14 :stunned:). Away at Chesterfield (who just beat Walsall away) Away at league leaders Gillingham (who have a 6x better goal difference)...
  16. Ref Watch ........ Barnsley H

    Although we have got the better of games against Barnsley over the years, we haven't beaten them at home in 6 attempts over the last twenty years. In fact last time we got maximum points off them at Roots Hall, Phil Gridelet scored! Tomorrow's referee is Charles Breakspear from...

    Why we will never be happy

    It's a tough life following the fortunes of a lower league side. Let us just imagine that we ended up in the National League (Conference) before rising like a Phoenix from the flames... On life in the National League This is embarrassing, we've never played at this level before Tinpot teams...
  18. Ref Watch ...... Swindon H

    The referee for tomorrow's match is the very experienced Andy Woolmer from Northampton. This short referee with even shorter hair had the capacity to be slightly officious but he is usually reasonably steady - a safe pair of hands. He is in his 12th year as a League referee and has refereed...

    Does the pyramid system change much?

    The pyramid system certainly makes football more exciting and gives non-league clubs hope of the Football League dream. HOWEVER, it changes very little. Non league clubs remain non league style clubs playing in the Football League..in general. Look at the lowest attendances in League 2 last...
  20. This Season

    As supporters of the Mighty Shrimpers and residing in the frozen North West, (Morecambe) we made the trek to Fleetwood, excited and yet worried. We needn't have been as I thought we were the better side. If Fleetwood are a fancied side then get your money on us to finish top 3. When Mooney gains...
