occasions

  1. How can we get the Wembley daytrippers into the Hall ?

    We have such a huge following for the big occasions, but they rarely seem to visit the hall for your typical home league match ? Any suggestions how we can entice them in, or have we tried and found it's pointless ?
  2. Ref Watch ...... Swindon H

    The referee for tomorrow's match is the very experienced Andy Woolmer from Northampton. This short referee with even shorter hair had the capacity to be slightly officious but he is usually reasonably steady - a safe pair of hands. He is in his 12th year as a League referee and has refereed...

    A BIT OF UNPLEASANTNESS - Yet another short story

    Trying to pass the time till the season starts here's yet another short story for all those that enjoy them (thanks both of you). All the facts are true, the description of Norwich's ground, the reserve match against Spurs, the winger hitting a Lady supporter and the match report against Derby...

    The Invasion of Gillingham - another short story

    Another fictional short story based on fact. Yes we did take 2,000 fans to Gillingham in 1921, yes we did take seven boat loads etc, only the names of the individuals are fictional. Not for everyone I know, but for those that wade through it this story is a tribute to your parents...
  6. Have some respect for Barry Corr

    Absolutely disgusted to see some of the comments about Corr following yesterday's performance. Some of our so called "fans" should be ashamed of themselves. To describe his performance as one moron did as "toilet" is disgraceful. Some FACTS about yesterday and the season as a whole; 1/ Corr's...

    Sky Sports Ultimate League table

    so looks like we are sitting just about where we always have. The top club in England is...Last Updated: 16:09 23/04/15 Liverpool are English football’s top side, according to the Ultimate League table compiled by Sky Sports. Positions have been calculated from teams’ average season-ending...
  8. Ref Watch ...... Tranmere H

    Tranmere have definitely had the better of the matches between the two clubs that have taken place on a fairly regular basis since the abolition of Div 3 North and South. We haven't had a 0-0 with them at Roots Hall for 20 years though. Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his...
  9. Ref Watch ..... Wimbledon A

    Our last three home League matches against AFC Wimbledon have all been defeats, whereas our last three away League games have all been wins (by the comfortable aggregate of 9-1). The referee in charge of the most recent of those wins returns on Tuesday. Tomorrow's referee is Graham Scott from...

    SUFC all-time rugby XV

    With the 6 Nations starting this weekend to kick-off a Rugby World Cup year, what would be your all time rugby team, compiled from SUFC past or present. 1 2 Gary Deegan - looks like a hooker (not that type) with ridiculous beard and chunky thighs 3 4 Roy McDonough - tall(ish) and loved the...
  12. Subbed on and sent off

    What other occasions has a substitute been sent off? Corr also managed it last season at home to Bury. Surprised to find that Mohsni managed to avoid it.
  13. Ref Watch ........ Portsmouth A

    For our visit to Portsmouth where we have only ever won once (last year!), the man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He was fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his fourth season. He started his career off with 6 red...
  14. Napster

    New quiz - Southend v the Scum

    In what year was the first ever meeting between the sides? Which two players has scored 4 in one match against Col U? Which 1980s player scored three times in three separate games against Col U but never appeared on the winning side? Who scored the winner in the last time we beat Col U? After...
  15. Ref Watch ......... Wycombe A

    Our last three matches at Wycombe have gone ... lose ... win ... lose - our turn next ! This refwatch is very much a cut and paste for me as it is the same official we had for the Chester Cup defeat just 5 weeks ago - our last defeat ! Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his...
  16. SUFC 10 goals 07/08

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?hl=en-GB&v=PEjOIm_Sb7U&gl=GB We have had a few threads of a nostalgic nature recently and in the clip above we see some wonderful goals together with a glimpse of irony in a certain Nicky Bailey scoring twice in different matches against his current employers. I...
  17. Ref Watch Cup Refwatch .... Chester H

    It's just a few weeks short of 10 years since we last hosted Chester at the Hall; a late, late goal from substitute, Laurie Dudfield was the only score of the match. My first memories of Chester home matches were the two 5-1 home wins in successive seasons in the mid-60s. Away games are clearly...
  18. Ref Watch ........ Morecambe H

    We must beat them in the League sooner or later ! The referee for tomorrow's match is the very experienced Andy Woolmer from Northampton. This short referee with even shorter hair had the capacity to be slightly officious but he is usually reasonably steady - a safe pair of hands. Caught him...
  19. From the very gracious Chichester Observer

    Nonetheless, the manner of Pompey’s defeat says infinitely more than the 2-0 scoreline at Roots Hall suggests. The Shrimpers were poor, lacking spark and creativity, certainly a shadow of the team which reached the play-offs last term. Andy Awford’s side were worse. Not considerably worse...
  20. Ref Watch ........ Wimbledon (H)

    The man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his fourth season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, then calmed down a lot. He has now...
