    Club Identity and Motto

    Down the years it has always struck me that Southend United has struggled to really nail down it's identity. This can be observed through the countless times the crest has morphed and the multitude of Blues/Yellows/Turquoise/Whites and Reds!!! the kits have produced. Not to mention how the club...

    I don't think its been mentioned on here, but forget the old "coming down with the xmas decorations" being Southends motto, it should be Beware November..According to CP in the echo today, in the past 5 seasons 66 ponts have been on offer during November, we have accumlated just 15 of them. Now...

    Question Trust Transport to Scotland????

    The Trust are now spending up to £10,000.00 on subsidising the clubs expenses for this pre-season trip to Scotland. As the motto is "to Help not Hinder" can i take it that they will be organising a coach service for supporters?

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS. This is mine.. I guess it takes up quite a lot of space. But i thought it was funny. IF SOMEONE...

    Women's Way

    The Good Housekeeping Way #1 Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips. The Real Women's Way Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for God's sake. You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway. The Good...

    The Dawn In A New Era...

    Last night's support wasn't just amazing, it was something special. Something that you are unlikely to see anywhere in the world of football today. To support the lads as much as we did at 4 and 5-0 down, quite simply was spine tinglingly overwhelming... The Blue Voice has been pushing for this...

    One Team - One Passion - One Voice

    This game is huge, let’s make no bones about it. This is bigger than the Man U game. This is bigger than the last Play-Off game with Northampton, back in the League Two days. It is also bigger than the LDV (as it was called then) Area-Final with our friends from Colchester. This is quite...

    Surprisingly accurate personality test

    http://www.animalinyou.com/survey.asp When I worked at The Independent we used this personality test on ten people in the office and it was pretty much spot-on in every case. It only asks a handful of questions, so God knows how it works. Anywhere, here's me. I'm a rooster! Roosters are...

    Che Wilson&#39;s musings are on the official site here... Wilson looking to continue home form Whilst some of Dave&#39;s comments are a trifle erratic (e.g. <span style='color:blue'>&quot;The Blues have won their last four encounters, conceding just two goals in the process...&quot;</span> -...

    Letter in the National Press

    Published in a national newspaper. I wonder if Blair's Hate Crime Police are working on the case? IMMIGRANTS, NOT BRITS MUST ADAPT. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on the 7th of the 7th we have...
