  1. game in spain today

    ITS good to see that both center back triaists are starting also Rowan Murray starts along side cox .But what is a little concerning is Nile Ranger will miss out due to an injury .Hopfully this is nothing but we really don't need another passenger this season after Hunt last season .

    Abuse on the streets

    I do a lot of cycling and it has occurred to me that I get a lot of abuse whilst out and about. Recent examples: Car passenger shouting the C word at me on Southend Seafront Half a can of Lager thrown from a car on Canvey. Drunken tattooed lout jumping in front of me and making dog barking...

    If the game had finished at half time today...

    ...we would be saying how well we played. I could totally understand the system switch; we played narrower, with no wingers, because Weston and Coulthirst are not going to win aerial battles. With those two plus Payne and Clifford we have players with quick feet that can switch the ball about...

  6. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Macclesfield 0-0 Southend United

    A really boring game, don't bother watching the highlights, there aren't any. Morris - 7 - Commanded his box well and wasn't really tested Clohessy - 6.5 - Defended reasonably well and was always a quick outlet. Barker - 6 - Not at his best, gifted Macclesfield a chance where he was caught...

  8. Pellegrini In A State Of Pjanic

    When Manuel Pellegrini took the reins at Real Madrid, blank cheque book in hand, I doubt very much he expected his only shot at silverware at this stage of the season would lie solely in a sprint to the finish with Barcelona... Courtesy of Miralem Pjanic, that is exactly the situation. Lyon...

    A Lesson to you all

    When I was 18 (younger and even more stupid then now) I use to drink on pier hill at Charlies Bar (Motels) mainly because I use to work at the Palace Hotel when I left school and I use to drink with some of the worst people in Southend, Druggys, ponce's and thieves the lot but during that time...

    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...

    Please Tilly - Give us a striker.

    I have got to say I am pleasantly suprised by out start to the season. I have only seen the home games I must confess but in both I feel we have been the better side and we could have won. I feel the real issue apart from the aparant lack of width (Which seems less of a problem that I thought...

    MILLWALL nothing changes.

    A little bit of history repeating itself perhaps? Div 3(S) No. 10 Saturday 6th October 1923 SOUTHEND UNITED 0-0 MILLWALL Millwall came to the Kursaal with very negative hard aggressive tactics, trying to spoil the game and they succeeded in so far as they gained a point, but in the 1920s...

    Champs League Final

    This is more than a General Football subject which is why i posted in here. Arsenal fans get attacked. A Luxury coach is hijacked, a passenger stabbed. This is organised Italian crime and has again happened against English fans in Rome. Will Sepp Blatter act? Course not, same old same old...
