    SZ BT Cup Final

    Final - ShrimperZone CC v Southend 3rd Place play off - BATTY SHRIMPERS v General Stars In case anyone is wondering, in the absence of neutral grounds, home advantage is decided by the better performance in the group stages.

    Southend vs Southampton

    BATTLING BLUES GET WIN AT LAST What a difference a week makes. Morale and spirit hit a new low after last Saturday's abject performance against a very ordinary Wolves side. The local press ran a feature through the week revolving around the supporters views on what had gone wrong. Some -...
  3. 4 Pairs of tickets to be won in the Echo

    Good luck in the competition in today's Echo to win 4 pairs of tickets for the big match. There is also an article on queueing with approprite qouts from fands including Carl Catley of Canewdon who says '' I support both Manchester and Southend United so either way I will be happy...

    Match report from a

    Found this from a neutral O's fan , NOT A travesty of a result for what it matters. Orient were much the better side and with better luck in front of goal would have had this game sewn up long before Eastwood's 20 yard daisy cutter into the bottom left hand corner drew the sides level...

    SZ Cup

    Final: Crabby's Crunchers v ShrimperZone FC 3rd Place Play Off: Quackers v Southsea Commoners To be played at neutral venues, I propose playing the final at ORM's stadium as the outgoing champ, I assume it will be free!

    Worst Game Ever?

    There was a point last night where I was so bored I actually thought I was just going to stop breathing. Like a floundering man in icy water, my system was beginning to shut down on me. To be fair, Switzerland against Ukraine never really hurled itself off the page at me. It always looked like...
  7. World Cup so far

    If i was a neutral you would wander what all the fuss about England is, last night was another below average performance, crticism has to be tempered as we qualified top of the group unbeaten but I have this horrible feeling we could well go out on Sunday. Besides a free kick in the first 5...
  8. southend_utd_fan


    With Southend playing last night, few of the lads wanted to go to a game. So this Morning we all met up at vic station. Bumped in to a Fulham fan asked if there any tickets still on sale. He said of course there is and show us the way to Fulham. Got to the ground 1.30 booked are tickets which...

    Chris Kamara

    Is it just me or was Chris Kamara obviously dissapointed with the fact Lincoln lost yesterday? I know they mentioned he was mates with their Manager but I thought he was supposed to be neutral?!? Even when they all spoke to Tilly at the end of the match, Kamara seemed to keep going on about...
  10. Today's game

    Well done fellas. As Tilly has just said on Sky SPorts News, it was a professional performance which we never looked like losing. Fans were tremendous, a fantastic turn out. I turned up at 1.45 and got directed to the terraces because the tickets were running out and the queue was massive. Last...
  11. Arsenal vs Manc U

    OK, this may end up being moved to the All Leagues forum, but I'd say this is the sort of thing that gets discussed in a real life pub - so here it is (for now at least). I'm no great fan of the Premiersh*te, it is largely over-hyped and a lot of the games are of no real interest to the...

    A little light reading

    Love it when neutral reports are as generous as this.... Soccernet: Southend v Rushden report "Southend 3-0 Rushden & D'monds: FT Report Kevin Maher's first goal of the season pointed the way to an emphatic 3-0 victory for Southend against Rushden which added impetus to their...

    The fbm view and ratings

    As I usually try and write my view for people who weren't there, I'm going to change it a bit tonight as I guess most will have seen it.  Anyway, we have the rare option of picking it to pieces and dissecting it via video or SKY plus or whatever, so I figured I would just relay my view of the...

    The Ref

    There was an article about our game in the Telegraph which says something about how bad the ref was and then quotes Leroy Rosenior as saying that things even themselves up, pointing out that he was scathing about the same ref in their game with Mansfield in March. So now it all becomes clear...

    The fbm view and ratings

    What a game! Anyone neutral watching would have witnessed 90 minutes of great entertainment, and surely would have wondered how on earth we have spent the best part of 40 matches near the bottom of the table. Hulls travelling army always give great support, but you know when Blues are playing...
