    Teenage Southend Fan - Up the Blues!
  3. Newbie alert!!!

    Hello everyone. Recently joined this site over the weekend. My son turns 5 in August and over the last few months has gone football mad. Took him to the "Meet The Blues Day" on Sunday, which I thought was fantastic. My daughter, 8, also went (mainly so she could meet Daniel Bentley -...
  4. 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...
  5. Liverpool

    Hello all, sure that this has been spoken about on here before, but as a newbie thought I'd see how many remember that night, we ran home from Fairfax that afternoon so we could get in early
  6. helloooo

    Hey all, newbie here (obviously) Who am I? A bit about myself, I live in Australia, unfortunately quite a fair distance from Roots Hall. Or any League two ground for that matter so I cant claim to have actually seen a Southend match live. I have a shockingly poor knowledge of football in...

    Hello. Another Newbie, back home after years of living and working away. Enjoying the special atmosphere at Roots Hall again and clinging to (fading hopes) of a promotion and Cup double. Come on you Blues!
  10. Hi, newbie here

    Hello all, Just moved into the area, and looking to get to know my local team. Good result last night, one match away from Wembley. What are the chances of you beating Leyton Orient, then, to get there?:stunned:

    Losing the Wycombe game to the weather didn't unduly affect many players with a whole host of points racked up S2tc had a superb week with 5/5 landing him the 5 point bonus but even his effort was dwarfed by newbie Kitch who nailed 3 spot ons including the wildcard as part of an incredible 19...

    Just saying hello ... hello Blues fan for my sins, exiled in Derby, which means I hardly get to see them and am relying on you to give me the real reviews and gossip!

    Sepp Blatter

    Hope people dont mind me starting a new thread considering im a 'Newbie'! Blatter today called for an alternative to be found rather than Penalty Shoot-Outs... Personally I think he's deluded, we've tried golden goal and if i remember rightly that was abandoned in 2002. As agonising as...

  17. AGM minutes

    Uncle Albert, boots shining like a cyclists tail light,strode into the foyer of the Palace Hotel. As he did so a smartly dressed youngman hesitantly came forward to greet him. His job was to welcome all the Bluesshareholders as they arrived for the clubs AGM and he’d obviously beenforewarned not...
