    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 3rd round of nominations

    It's time for the third round of nominations. Rules and guidelines are here. Basically each poster gets one nomination per round, so use your nomination wisely, and individuals need five nominations to go forward to a ballot. So far Chris Powell, Sid Broomfield, Stan Collymore, Ron Pountney...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Frank Gill

    One of the reasons I was keen to get the Hall of Fame going, was to learn more about our club's heritage. I thought I had a fairly decent grasp on our club's history but this is one nomination that has caught me completely by surprise. I'm therefore welcoming the opportunity to find out more...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Stan Collymore

    The next man up for election to the Southend United Hall of Fame is Stanley Victor Collymore. I think Stan might be the first man to divide opinion sufficiently to have a few no votes. After all, longevity is one of the criteria and Stan only graced a Southend shirt thirty-three times and...

    Gentlemen - and hopefully some of you ladies - it's that time again. The Totty Cup is back and it's bigger and better than ever. As last year, we will be harnessing the outstanding intellect, wide-ranging intelligence and thought-provoking insight that exists on this fine board and putting it...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 1st round of nominations

    For a bit of fun and to honour our club's history, I propose starting a SZ Hall of Fame to recognise the true legends of Southend United. The words legend and great are bandied about a bit too often for my liking, I'd like our Hall of Fame to be exclusive and so that only the elite make it. It...

    Southend scoreboard on Baker & Kelly

    Just caught up with the latest Baker and Kelly podcast and they're asking for fans to send in parts of their teams grounds that could form a new stadium. I was really pleased to hear an email was read out having been sent in by Matthew Weir, nominating our own beloved scoreboard. Great...

  18. Favourite Beer

    Inspired by an excellent post from Matt on the Chit Chat forum: I wonder which is your favourite beer? A description of the beer and reason for loving it? Matt seems to favour Crouch Vale, which I must confess I hadn't heard of. My current nomination, (though I reserve the right to change...

    February Player of the Month

    So, February voting is now well under way... We've not had any games yet, but there is one tonight and we can also take a lead from the Darlo game... Also, who hasn't picked it up this year but perhaps deserves recognition for their performances over the season to date? In my opinion...
