  3. Ref Watch ..... Chesterfield away

    Saturday's interesting looking fixture at Chesterfield's very new stadium will be refereed by a very new referee. In his first year as a League referee, David Coote from Newark will be making the surprisingly short 45 minute journey. This will be his fourth ever League match; the other three...

    Kulula Airline

    Kulula is an Airline with it's head office situated in Johannesburg . Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported: Kulula's new paint scheme "Flying...
  5. Ref Watch ..... Bristol City

    As the club can't be bothered to open more than one stand, I can't be bothered to do much more than a short refwatch. Man in charge tonight is Dave Phillips from Sussex, refereeing his fourth Southend match. First was Huddersfield at home two years ago (lost 1-0 booked Macca), second was away...

    Bobby Robson (RIP) & Liberia: Football's Legacy of hope

    Question What Was The Meeting With The Football League About??

    I have a terrible feeling that the Football League may take this entire issue out of our hands by demanding guarantees (which it does not look like we can supply) that we will be in a position to fulfill our fixtures this season which may be a reason for summoning GK to their offices. I really...

    New titles to make jobs more important...

    Read in the paper the other week that some companies are using new titles for jobs to make them sound more important such as: Stock Prevention Officer = Security Guard Information Advisor = Librarian Just heard another one, which I though sounded daft: Geospatial Applications Advisor =...

    Southenders and we're proud of it.

    This my little tribute to our fathers and grandfathers etc who make us all proud to be Southenders. During the war the Southend Standard had a weekly column showing news of local men such as: EKCO EXECUTIVES LOSS – A 19½ year old man has been killed in active service, the son of an executive of...

    Jose - Up Close and Personal

    Jose Mourinho smoulders. I wanted to get through this feature without writing anything that might worry my new wife, but there you go, I&#8217;ve blown it in the first line. But he really does. He smoulders. He walks into the sweaty, over-crowded press room and sits there in front of the lights...
  12. Ref Watch ..... Swindon

    Man in charge of Saturday's crucial (aren't they all now?) match is Police Officer David Phillips from Chichester, West Sussex refereeing in his second season. This will be his third Southend game and his second Southend home game; his only previous Southend home match being the match against...

    A Stirring Match - A Warcry for Tomorrow.

    Col Ewe tomorrow and I'm sure we don't need a WarCry but sometimes it's worth remembering who and what we are. We are Southenders, Southend United supporters with a proud history and love for our town and our club, not dependent on success (unlike our deluded premiership counterparts) but we...
  16. Ref Watch ... Yeovil away

    After a very satisfactory performance from Rob Shoebridge on Saturday (if not from the players) what does next Saturday bring? Yeovil has often been the venue for very poor refereeing performances as far as Southend are concerned. But despite that we have won our last three away League matches...

    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...
