  4. Capital One Cup - 1st Round - Peterborough (Away)

    So the draw for the newly named league cup is announced this Thursday morning, the cup draw and fixture list is always something to look forward to in the summer. Firstly, who does everyone want in the next round? (any league 2 side at home for me to get a little cup run going). Secondly, The...
  5. Ref Watch ...... vs Hereford

    As we go for our tenth straight League win against Hereford, the man in charge is newly promoted Carl Berry from Cheam in Surrey. It is not, however, his first League match as he had a couple of "trial" matches last season; both were home wins. His last appearance at Roots Hall was running one...

    Paxman's newsnight interview with Noam Chomsky

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/9418922.stm The best thing I've seen on the BBC in a long time.His case for non-intervention in Libya is compelling. I loved his comment(towards the end of the interview)that blind belief in the self regulation of "free" markets was fanaticsm...

    FC - Match 8

    Gatley v ShrimperZone CC Defeat will mean relegation, lost the vital toss (bowling conditions today, batting Thursday) and his monster is wreaking havoc already. A big test of our newly strengthened batting line up. End of Over 7 (Maiden). ShrimperZone CC: 15-1, runrate=2.14 Overs left...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Bristol City

    Well here we are again. Tonight is the second game of the season and for once we dont face cheltenham town, but we do face a decent team in bristol city. City for those who dont know ply there trade in the championsip and are tipped by some to be a dark horse in the race for the holy grail...

    Boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the football season, and in particular the brand-spanking new npower Football League for the 2010-11 season.

    TOMMY HAPPY TO REGISTER FIRST WIN Posted on: Sat 31 Jul 2010 Assistant manager Tommy Widdrington was happy to register his first victory since moving to Southend United at the start of July on Saturday. Bilel Mohsni's 26th minute header was enough to claim a 1-0 victory against Eastbourne...
  11. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...

    BA Again

    Will strike before the end of March. They lost £50 million in the last quarter and need to cut costs. Cant the Union see this? This from BBC website: Promotion on merit? Blimey what a liberty. Anyone going away with BA this year? I booked flights to USA for October and decided to go with...

    Question SZ Betting forum?

    Would you be happy to see an SZ betting forum for all those who wish to discuss betting and the newly formed 'SZ Saturday Gamble' so it does not clog up so much space in the pub forum?

    Orient last night

    Only 2,600 odd there for the game which I must say is shocking! Orient use to pull similar crowds to us back in the late 90s early 00s when we were both in the bottom division, but I can't understand with promotion and newly built areas of the ground yet attendances are very low! Jonny Stokes...

    Save Rafa....

    Out of the title race, out of the Champions League, out of the League Cup and out of the FA Cup. Under normal circumstances, it's obvious that Rafa Benitez would be out of a job this morning but, unfortunately for Liverpool, these are far from normal circumstances. They are broke, weighed down...
  16. The French Re-Vieira

    Roberto Mancini must be feeling in a charitable mood… offering to re-home an aged war-dog like Patrick Vieira certainly caught a few people off guard. The France captain spent the summer being linked with a return to Arsenal, and then August being touted as a shock move for Redknapp’s Spurs in...
  17. County's Web of Lies About to Unravell

    Just as the Notts County faithful were beginning to come to terms with their new found regality and success, it turns out Sol Campbell's departure might just be the tip of the iceberg that sinks them. Rumours are rife that the Football League aren't happy with the information disclosed by the...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...
