    Memory Lane "it was fifty years ago today"

    Yes! It really was 50 years ago today that the then Southend United manager Ernie Shepherd signed Billy Best from Northampton Town for a modest £3,000 fee...
  2. physical condition of SUFC

    I have been very impressed the fitness and strength of some League One teams - Wimbledon, shrewsbury etc. I think our players give pretty much all they have got but how much have they got ? Oxley 100% Ferdinand - 40 % Turner 60 % - Kightly 80 % John White 85% Coker 80% - 2nd match after broken...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-0 Bury

    Beyond poor. Whole game was lacking in quality beyond belief other than one moment from Ryan Leonard which decided the game. Other than that, you'll find better at Priory Park tomorrow. Pitch means we couldn't get it down and play and the wind meant we couldn't go long, and Bury were the same...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Peterborough United

    Very entertaining game which could really have gone either way. Can't help but feel that they were there for the taking and they'll likely feel the same. Slow start but could have put the game to bed, poor defending for their goal after a wrong call by the ref on the throw-in and we seemed to...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-1 Blackpool

    What an end to an entertaining game! Blackpool were better than Wimbledon and we rode our luck at times again, but Cox playing further forward was much improved and got him his goal and we never gave up. Some were flagging towards the end but that's to be expected given how recently they've come...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-0 AFC Wimbledon

    Hard fought but a good win. We started superbly, then lost control and were perhaps a tad fortunate to go in at half time at 0-0. Second half we were solid, didn't really have much of a goal threat and were lucky with the goal but it was the kind of ball into the box that we haven't seen enough...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Plymouth Argyle

    Got to be winning games like that. Very frustrating as first half was almost one way traffic only for our concentration to go after half time again. Poor defending and would have been a defeat if it weren't for Mark Oxley. Fortune was running on fumes yet PB took Cox off and that hugely limited...

    Contemporary philosophical realism is the belief that some aspects of reality are ontologically independent of our conceptual schemes, perceptions, linguistic practices, beliefs, etc. Realism may be spoken of with respect to other minds, the past, the future, universals, mathematical entities...

    Abdul Salami Goes Out On Loan

    East Thurrock United have signed young defender Abdul Salami on loan from League One side Southend United until the end of the season. Abdul Salami Salami, who turns 19 next month, joined Southend in 2012 and has already marked himself out as a very determined youngster who has all the...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-1 Rochdale

    Brilliant ending on a very frustrating afternoon. Both teams had slow starts but we grew into it and had quite a few chances. Should have been out of sight by half-time and as has become normal we let it go a bit second half. We looked tired later on and think their three changes against our...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Bristol Rovers

    Would have taken that at the start of the afternoon. Yet another set piece conceded which is worrying and we really didn't threaten going forwards so had a bit of luck to get the penalty and Cox did well to convert. Tactics frustrating, Brown's decisions were a little questionable for me, the...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Sheffield United

    Right, can't wait for this big Easter Monday clash. I love Easter Monday matches, me. Who can forget that 1-1 draw with Watford that time or when we all got booted up in the air by Millwall in 1980. The match was a bit physical, as well! :thump: Anyway, Roots Hall will be rocking with a...

    Memory Lane Old Match of the Week Highlights

    Hi all, On the George Best Thread, we were talking about old matches that used to be on Match of the Week and in particular, those involving us. I mentioned I would find out from the EAFA (East Anglian Film Archive) if they had access to them and had the below very helpful response :- The...
  14. Cheeky bar-steward (Cov fan article)

    Q How concerning have their last couple of results been? The defeat at Southend seemed particularly surprising. When looking at our last 10 league fixtures, we lie 18th in the form table. That speaks for itself and if we don't get back to winning ways soon, the play-offs will begin to look...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-1 Swindon Town

    Same old, same old as we dominate and lose again. Almost identical to Brighton only we had even better chances and dominated more and their goal didn't come so late on. Hunt could've scored and should've done better when he hit straight at the keeper at his near post, as should Payne when he...

    Mixed emotions and a You Tube plea

    When I say mixed I am obviously well over the moon. 750 am here and I am buzzing. I can't tell you how good today will be. I was supposed to stream this game but it just didn't happen. Shattered through work but I was awake on and off and had the zone on iPhone and BBC on IPad. When I saw that...

    On the Burton site , their midfielder Weir has said the following : When asked what he knows about tomorrow’s opponents, Weir said “Obviously we had them in the play-offs last year and we have played them this year.” He added "You know they are physical and the want to mix it up so its going...

    Stevenage Don't Like it Up 'Em

    It seems Graham Westley doesn't like it when teams get physical with his Stevenage team. I guess he's reaping what he sews. It wouldn't surprise me if other teams are more physical against Stevenage in order to combat their uncompromising style, but it's a bit rich him complaining about...

    Pre-Match Thread Shrewsbury Town vs Southend United

    Another BIG away game and we MUST do better than we did at WW (when they were table toppers). Pleasant new stadium, good away end, fair stewards, ok pies; I wish I could be there. However more importantly what will Mr B do? Will he stay with the same line up? We don't have any new injuries that...
