  2. Sums paid to Agents and intermediaries

    CP has tweeted details of sums paid in Div 1 and Blues are fourth highest @226k behind Blackburn, Wigan and Charlton. Interesting to see the huge disparity in sums paid. Good value for money for our opponents on Saturday?

    Supporters Group Meetings April Meeting and update

    We last met in January - just before the Fleetwood game. There was a lot of talk about the then predicament we were in. Things have clearly moved on since then. The main highlights.... Someone was found with a pyro earlier in the season. He isn't currently coming to football, and it seems his...

    Best currently at the club?

    Best Header Interesting for me to see the two people I rate as the best headers of the ball at our club score with their heads this weekend. Turner's goal was a peach. Unmarked as he may have been, that was a great connection and a beautifully placed finish right past the keeper. Didn't need...

    Who says season is over ??

    Most of us would have taken a point at Plymouth and the same at Blackburn. But what if, after yesterday's rousing performance, we could somehow magic 3 points at Blackburn? Here's a summary of the key remaining fixtures of the main contenders for the last two play-off places - against each...

  9. Memory Lane 58 years ago today April 2nd 1960.

    At about 2.10 I walked with my dad to the bus stop on theno.8 route outside Ayres grocers shop in Rectory Road, Hawkwell, to catch the2.20 bus to Southend. In those days the bus got to Priory Park by just before2.40; there was no bypass in Rochford, not even a one-way system - the buseswent both...
  10. Dru Yearwood Sale (Poor attempt at humour)

    Heard that a deal has been agreed this weekend to sell Dru at the end of the season to an undisclosed non uk team.
  11. Ref Watch ..... Gillingham H

    It's 10 matches since we beat Gillingham anywhere and that was the match when a late Mark Phillips goal gave the 10-man Blues (Mohsni had left early!) a solitary goal victory. Friday's referee came from Salisbury - tomorrow's is named Salisbury.The man in charge of the Easter Monday fixture is...
  12. my view on this season !

    Now as far as im concerned this season is over , we are safe from relegation ,so what is my view on this season, Well as far as im concerned its been a disaster,so much preseason hope,was it ruined by so many injuries and the absolutely bad pitch , yes too an extent,but even if we had no...
  13. Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Gillingham

    After watching the game at Gillingham in August who would have thought that we would be just 1 point ahead of them with 7 games left. I think we might have 2 or 3 changes from yesterday. Kightly and Harrison to start with possibly Timlin back in. I think we still need 3 points to be safe...

    Question How to watch tomorrow's match from Madeira?

    Does anyone have a link to watch the match live (I know I will have to pay). Currently away on holiday. Thanks in advance.
  18. Powell to Charlton ?

  19. Ref Watch ..... Plymouth A

    Competitive head-to-head matches against Plymouth are perfectly balanced. Each team has won 24 times and there have been 23 draws. Another draw would tidy things up nicely and not be the worst result. We haven't actually won at Home Park this century although we did have a nice run of three...

    Pre-Match Thread Plymouth Argyle v Southend United

    Friday, 3pm For me my first away game of 2018 and one I am really looking forward to. PA, are IMO a proper club in that they are local and loyal supporters. I can not guess what SCP will pick but I expect an unchanged main squad with maybe Demi returning? And on a good Home Park Kites replacing...
