  1. Does Jon Venables deserve execution?

    Following on from a very brief discussion in a seperate thread a few months ago, it's been confirmed today that Jon Venables is to once again stand trial for possessing indecent images of children. I'd like to gauge people's thoughts on whether Corporal Punishment would be justified here...
  2. Set Pieces

    You would think that the management understand this to be a way you can win/loose games We lost the game at Scunthorpe because we conceded 2 goals from corners It’s remarkable (lost for words) that it has been over 70 corners since we last scored. This blame can not be put on anyone but the...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-2 Newport County

    Pathetic. Any other words? Absolutely hopeless. No goal threat and a shambles at the back. Smith 5 At fault for the opening goal and flapped at a lot. Demetriou 5 Struggled to stick to his position and in the air. White 7 One of few with any credit, good in the air and on the floor. Kiernan 6...

  7. West Ham

    The swear filter that this goes through is pathetic. Can it be changed please? It makes us look like children. Thanks

    Who has the right to delete threads that are not liked by the powers that be. Pretty pathetic by someone who needs psychiatric help.:thumbdown:
  9. Pathetic comments from Colu fans

    On Roy McDonald's Facebook page he put congratulations to Southend but then there was some very sad and pathetic comments from those 6 fingered idiots. Here's just a few: Southend were lucky Southend will always be in Colchester shadow Southend will go straight back down We will bring loads...
  10. Results against current top ten with Burton next.

    Home 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 Away 0 2 0 2 0 1 1 4 Just 5 measly points obtained whilst scoring a truly pathetic 4 goals! Burton has become vital for the win but I fear the worse as the above record suggests we don't score many and cannot keep them out. Brown's bizarre signings have hindered not...
  11. The cold facts !

    Our last 26 league games have produced only 7 wins 11 draws with 8 defeats scoring a pathetic 26 goals!! 32 points from 26 is no where near good enough for promotion,Add the play off games then it's 7 wins from 28 . The common denominator during this run has been lack of goals,This season same...

    Our Cheerleaders

    My Orient mate at work is understandably very quiet at work today. His only retort about last night was that Orients cheerleaders are so much better than our Southend Utd cheer leaders..... ( pathetic !! ) Now i saw their girls from the 1st leg + thought they looked rather average , but i need...

    Coughlan postmatch interview:

    Graham Coughlan seemed to allude to the fact that some Southend players dislike playing at Roots Hall. Although he was keen to point out that he doesn't see that as an excuse. I thought the little Roots Hall crowd tonight were extremely restrained in their reactions to what was a gutless...

    The Olympics V Football

    I watched our chaps at the Olympics, I wanted them to win every event and I cheered them on TV because I couldn't get any tickets. I really enjoyed the games and thought we did very well. However I did not shout and abuse any athlete who did not win. OK I wasn't actually there but you know...
  17. Dickinson's Role

    CP said something on the radio yesterday, he said that Dickinson is one of our most inconsistent players, on his day he can be brilliant, but on the other days he won't win anything all game, there is no middle ground with him. I agree with this 100%, I also think the people defending him when...

    Sturrock : Master tactician

    Paul Sturrock is a genius. He knows that the best day ever for southend supporters ( not including cup matches ) was the league play off final in Cardiff. He also knew how gutted we were to lose out to Swindon + not go to Wembley in the JPT. He realises that by finishing 4th we will have a 2...

    Creepy Crawley v Stoke

    Dreadful dreadful game so far, only matched by the pathetic display of referee Mike Jones .. firstly he sent off Rory Delap for a sliding tackle (though saw fit to ignore the fact the fat fella came on the pitch to remonstrate) then to even things up he gave Stoke one of the softest penalties...

    Watching Barcelona v Real Madrid. Theres some great football but do they need to roll around the floor everytime they get fouled? I always thought Fabregas was a fair player for Arsenal but he seems to have picked up the diving habit pretty quickly. Pathetic.
