  3. Ref Watch ...... Scunthorpe A

    We trail Scunthorpe by some way in head-to-head League matches - 15 wins to their 22 with 15 draws. This is largely down to our results at their two grounds where our 27 matches (incl one Cup game) have yielded meagre pickings with just two wins and a handful of draws (including one when I saw...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Gillingham Fc 2 - 1 Southend United - Checkatrade trophy

    Early difference - Gillingham were looking to shoot and willing to shoot. We stood off in an attempt to contain them - it didn't work. Parker's goal brought that home - not in a particular dangerous area but given bags of space and with a well hit shot from distance we were losing. We were...

  6. Sandy Hook

    Lots of people now saying the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting early 4 years ago was faked. Just to remind you 20 kids and 6 teachers died. If you haven't already seen any of the clips that make people doubtful, google a guy called Robbie Parker. Who ever he is, he is not the grieving...

    Derby v Southend 1976

    Hi, a request if I may to help with something I am writing Who was the Derby player that brought down one of our players when clear on goal in the 1976 FA Cup tie at the Baseball ground? I think it was Roy MacFarland, tho it might have been Colin Todd or Bruce Rioch. And was our player Stuart...

    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...

  12. Southend Utd Surprise Moments

    Just to take our minds off the winning run so it can continue quietly in the background - what is your most surprising Southend Utd moment? My first wife was from Finland and I had worked there for a year too in a town called Valkeakoski - you may know where this is going. On a visit back to...

  14. Memory Lane Memories of 1979

    Was reading about how we only need to sell a few more tickets to break our record sales for a blues match when I started thinking back to Wed 10th Jan, 1979 and thought it would be nice for those of us old and fortunate enough to be at the Liverpool match to share a few memories. The 3rd round...

    England Euro 2012 Squad

    The provisional squad's going to be announced a week today. So who'd be your 23-man squad to take to the tournament? Will be interesting to see if Hodgson's first squad is very different from Capello's last. Mine: Goalkeepers: Hart, Foster, Carson. Defenders: Johnson, Richards, Cahill, Terry...
  17. Yorkshire Blue

    Scott Parker England captain

    A particularly underwhelming appointment, although at least it's not Gerrard. What channel's showing tonight's game? Cue loads of "It's only England, I don't care posts" Yawn. If you don't care, don't post.
