    Tillys Days at Canvey are Numbered

    Rumour flying around that he is one defeat away from being axed and maybe even sooner than that as lots of unrest and having to name himself as sub last week may of added to the troubles he is facing over there .

    Funny old game, isn't it?

    As our club becomes the centre of league 2 attention yet again in one of the most bizarre stories ever (club appoints new manager but allows old one to manage us 2 weeks later in a cup final) I have been thinking about the game, the situation and my feelings exactly when I saw the news that...

    England 3-2 Sweden

    So England put us through the motions as usual. 1st half was a bit scrappy, very congested in midfield but I thought we were pretty solid and Sweden didn't look very threatening. Brilliant cross from Gerrard (again) and header from Carroll. But then we go to sleep at two set-pieces early in the...

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    North Bank v AFC Wombles - Let's not be outnumbered..

    With the return of the prodigal son. There's only one place to be next Friday. The North Bank. Seaso's get transferring now and non seaso's get your tickets sharpish. This is not going to be a night to miss. Will you be in the North to watch Freddy stick one in in front of us? The atmosphere...

    Does Soares not apperance on the bench make anyone else think that we might possibly have seen the last of him? I was delighted when we signed him as I felt he would be a good experienced player at this level but I feel he has done nothing at all and his days are numbered. I am guessing...

    Question Car Parking changes around Hospital

    As we drive in from Chelmsford (and don't normally arrive until 10 minutes before KO) I have generally found parking somewhere around Southend Hospital to be the easiest, usually Hillborough Road/Carlingford Drive. At the last couple of home games I have noticed that they are putting up...
  9. Live Footy Quiz @ 8pm - Play for the Blues

    Memory Lane Your Top 10 Blues Players

    Hi folks, now where were we before we were so rudely interupted? I was asking for your top 10 favourite blues players. Until the "American Incident" we'd had 55 responses. I've compiled an overall list which I'll post shortly, but if anyone didn't post a top 10 please do so - Top 10's must be...

    Doesn't go out until tomorrow, but I thought I'd let you lot have an early peak.... As usual feel free to agree/disagree, or go nothing at all :)

    Why I loved tonight.

    Well..., apart from the solid team performance and one or two great individual displays it was the first time in (my) living memory when West Ham fans didn't clearly outnumber Shrimpers fans at Roots Hall. They were outnumbered and outsung. Those who know me will know that I'm not an advocate of...

    ¡que lastima!

    There's something very wrong with this football club. I've followed SUFC for more than 30 years and, aside from Anton Johnson's brief suicidal tenure during the first half of the 1980s, I cannot think of a worse position that Southend United finds itself at the moment. Ron Martin might spin a...

    Question Is relegation a fair price to pay for having a new stadium?

    As I'm usually not very quick off the mark and plus the fact that I will be away for a week, from the evening of the Brentford game........I thought that I would get in first! I believe that in the next couple of weeks we are going to have a bitter- sweet pill to swallow. There will be much...
  15. Tommy2holes


    Well my pedigree chums. I have had a very nostalgic day indeed. I have been thinking about the club the memories its given me both good and bad and the sheer timescale effort and sacrifice that comes with it. It all started for me with southend needing a win at home to luton town with...

    Outnumbered at home

    Just in the process of getting my ticket for Brisbane Roar vs Celtic, a pre-season match over here in July. Now by all accounts every exiled Celtic fan and Irishman in Australia is heading to Brisbane for this game and despite being at home Roar fans (such as myself) will be seriously...

    Troubled Times For Cech

    Chelsea's season is in the sweaty hands of one man and he doesn't look entirely happy about it. If the Londoners are to have any hope of burying their second place curse, they need Petr Cech back to his best before this evening's FA Cup semi-final clash with Arsenal kicks off. Another disastrous...

    Tilly and Brush - going nowhere

    Oh my God - yes it's (yet) another Steve Tilson thread... and I would like to say that in making this I am only too well aware that this is a public forum and everyone is entitled to their opinion. But Christ there is a lot of tripe spouted on here. OK, lets start just by recapping on two...

    James "Jimmy" Walker - A little Praise if you will...

    James Walker seems to have come in for a little bit of criticism over recent weeks, some of it maybe deserved, some of it a little OTT, but almost completely un noticed, he has now notched 3 in 4 games, and no matter the opposition, that's a tidy little run he has got himself on. I think a lot...
