  1. Dear RM....

    Dear RM, oh exalted leader would it be at all possible to make a press release that involves nothing more than facts? Let the fans know a few things so that our debates are more informed. Is there an embargo? Does PB have a transfer kitty? Will the s106 be satisfied in the near...

    Hereford United

    Hereford have this afternoon been thrown out of the Football Conference. Terrible shame, I have been to Edgar Street on a couple of occasions and it was a very friendly and welcoming football club. Lets hope they can find a league to play in and work their way back up to the Football League.

    Boilers

    We had a Vailaint Combination boiler and although I always think of it as a new boilers it was 10 years ago. Water seems to go hot and cold when the pressure is high. Having a service next week but I fear neglecting to get it serviced over the years will have done it harm. I have been told on...
  4. Ref Watch ........ Bury H

    When I think of Southend v Bury matches, I tend to think of turgid 0-0 draws after the three we had in quick succession in the 70s. Even since then, there have been few goals about in these matches with the last 14 such matches producing a miserly 23 goals (6 of which came in one match). The...
  5. We Are Top Of The League........At Being Caught Offside

    According to Opta Stats, before yesterday's match. Sadly there were several offside decisions against us yesterday with Barry and Kevan the main culprits. On many other occasions, our players in forward positions knowing that were offside, had to let the play go by them and couldn't challenge...
  6. Pre-Match Thread v Wycombe

    Well I guess the return of the wind and rain will not help our 'leg weary' side right now. We desperately need a win tomorrow and despite the good football we have played on many occasions this season , I would take a scrappy , last minute own goal right now. Team selection will be interesting...

    31st January Newport at Home and a Disaster

    Serious Thread. 31st January 2014 Southend United play Newport County at home..... 61 years ago exactly; 31st January 1953 Southend United played Newport County at home. That night the worst floods ever to hit South East Essex killed over 60 people. Quite a coincidence that we are playing the...
  8. According to Rab

    Well January is here and the players and manager have had enough time to be scrutinised and for what its worth, not much, here are my humble ramblings; Paul Smith - Still with us, impossible to rate right now, lack of ambition maybe or why no transfer request? Dan Bentley - A damn good keeper...
  9. Strikers Who Leave And Score Goals...

    Matt Harrold - Useless for us, only scored 3 in 2 seasons. Has since gone on to play for Wycombe, Shrewsbury & currently Bristol Rovers. Has scored a total of 45 goals since leaving. Gary Hooper - Usually 3rd choice behind Freddy & Foran (Unbelievably). Currently with Norwich in the Prem. Since...
  10. Ref Watch ........ Newport A

    As we go to a city we haven't lost in for 31 years, 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 third season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first...
  11. Curse of the Hall

    Last 14 league games at the Hall have produced just 2 wins with 7 defeats!,During this barren run the team have managed to score more than 1 goal in just 1 game,4 occasions the lads have failed to find the net.Averaging under 1 point per game is a shocking return. I know this is old ground but...
  12. Ref Watch ....... Fleetwood H

    There are two Friday night matches and the two referees allocated are Deadman and Woolmer. We've drawn the long straw and the short ref. The referee for tomorrow's match against a team we have never lost to (we've never beaten them either but let's be positive!) is therefore Andy Woolmer from...

    Advice Please

    I view a house. I like it. The landlord is lovely. Another couple view the house. They like it. The rent is organised through a management agency/company. Both couples go to the office to sign the contracts. The landlord decides who gets the contract. Landlord chooses me. Great. Rent for 1...
  14. Ref Watch ........ Morecambe H

    Not much to say this week as we have a Roots Hall debutant in his first season. The man in charge of our attempt at a first ever victory over Morecambe is Charles Breakspear from Walton-on-Thames. Although he has not refereed us at all, he has been to Roots Hall as an Assistant or 4th Official...

    Memory Lane Next big thing .......

    Over the years we've heard on many occasions that one of our youngsters is gonna be the next big thing --- maybe even scouted by Premier clubs ....only to dissappear from view + end up playing non league.... I'll start off with James Lawson ......... ( scored with his 1st touch on his Blues...
  16. Ref Watch .......... Northampton H

    As we look to get our first home win in four attempts against Northampton, this fixture has seen a red card on three of the last four occasions it has been played. Man in charge of tomorrow's tricky looking match is Andy Davies from Hampshire, who has just started his second season as a...
  17. Ref Watch ......... Yeovil

    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 third season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, then calmed down a lot but then went a...

    Why my day at wembley was magical

    Ok here goes, in reply to the quite frankly OTT reaction to losing a cup final we had done amazingly well to get to let alone win the thing and some seemingly deflated people who had ridiculous expectations of the day. Awoken at 7:30 by my Dad banging on the front door singing wembleeeee...
  19. Ref Watch ........ Crewe at Wembley

    This match is usually given to a long-serving Football League official approaching retirement. This year is no exception with the honour going to experienced official, Nigel Miller from Durham. This is his tenth season as a League referee and this will be his eighth Southend match and his...
  20. Message to the Team for Sunday

    Hi We normally do a thread for messages to the Team on big occasions/games like this. Just wondered whether we should start one now - I know it's a bit late, but we are going to Wembley after all, and I am sure they would like to see our ongoing support and messages to them? Were previous...
