  1. Jack Redshaw

    So we managed to escape playing Morecambe next season, but we haven't escaped Redshaw. He's joined Blackpool.
  2. Hiya....

    I've been following Southend since 1978, and the first game I paid to get into (and didn't climb over the wall into the North bank toilets) was for the opening league game of the 78/9 season vs Chester. I've followed and dipped into the shrimper zone site , and can personally identify with the...
  3. Are we glad we lost a Morecambe now?

    Morecambe was one of the low points of supporting Southend. we went there full of confidence expecting to win but if we had of won we wouldnt have had that wonderful day on Saturday and we wouldn't have received a trophy. Maybe things were meant to be and losing at Morecambe even though totally...

    Phil Brown - an apology

    During the season I've be a critic of Mr Brown - especially on the coach home from various away games, i also posted criticisms on facebook in the heat of the moment that I'm not particularly proud of. But the last couple of months have proved me very wrong - what a rollercoaster ride - and to...

    Please please please

    Southend Utd, please do not freeze again on the big occasion away from home. So many times we have travelled away in great numbers, only to come away beaten or disappointed. Blackpool and Wrexham in the LDV at the Milstad, Crewe in the LDV at Wembley, Grimsby away in 2005, Morecambe earlier...

    Feels different this time

    I was having a chat with my parents the other day. Due to flying out on holiday Friday they will miss the game Saturday. It was actually my mum who said she was gutted to miss the game as it means so much more this time. My dad agreed, he had waited 61 years to see Southend at Wembley, me 33...
  7. Travel advice

    My Son and I are travelling from Morecambe in the frozen North West and are wondering on our most economical way of doing so. We could drive to Southend area, stop over and get on a coach from there or get the train down ont day but that would be a very long day. We could also train it or drive...

    ok, following the success of my Morecambe ticket thread which won a BAFTA tonight, this opens a thread on all that is joyous about getting a ticket for the home leg for Thursday. Over to you folks ........

    Breaking News The Battlecry!

    I'm a little excited this morning and the Mrs is away on a training course which means I can crank up the volume in the studio and have some fun. From the depths of Morecambe despair... And on the eve of Southend United's righteous playoff campaign... I bring you "The Rallying Battlecry of...

    Let's hope Phil Brown doesn't make the same mistake as at Morecambe. Barry Corr playing as the one up front doesn't work for the players we have at the club. We tried that system and went on our poor run, it didn't work, and Barry Corr couldn't score as he was easily marked and didn't get in the...
  11. How downbeat are you ?

    Following on from Mr Brown commenting on how low the punters were at the Sponsors evening earlier in the week I wondered if you were all still feeling flat. Many of my muckers, who were at Morecambe, and the Stevenage away game etc, simply cannot rally themselves make the shortish trip on...
  12. Advice for an away fan for next week

    As you can probably guess by my name and several posts I've made I'm Stevenage fan. Ticket details have been confirmed for the return leg at your place (we only get 900 which raised an eyebrow for me) and me and my girlfriend hope to purchase our tickets tomorrow. We do however have a few...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Morecambe 3-1 Southend United

    Gutted for all those who travelled so far....It was in our hands and we ****ed it up. Terrible result. So on to the play-off's and a second bite at the cherry. Not so sure if I feel happy or sad about that. This is SUFC ...nothing is EVER easy.
  16. New Song

    As Ian Benjamin said in the Echo, if Southend go up today then the whole team will be remembered. The question is, which one wants their name in the song? "Who put the ball in the Morecambe net? __________________!"
  17. fbm


    We will go up today. Everything points to it. Brown's new fitness regime which makes us one of the fittest teams in the league at the this stage of the season. The depth of squad means that the squad players are just as good as the first XI and are ready replacements if necessary, giving us an...

    And the SUFC fans are arriving in Morecambe.

    Suze Newton....add your pics here people.
  19. Car Space To Morecambe from SWF / Wickford

    Morning All, my nerves and excitement tomorrow are now well and truly kicking in. After a last minute pull out, I have a space in my car going from South Woodham Ferrers to Morecambe. I need to pick someone up at South Mimms services, so anywhere between SWF / Wickford and there I am happy to...
