    Five go mad in Sunderland. Or have a few beers anyway...

    Here's a review of Saturday in Sunderland, courtesy of Statski.... I think when the fixtures came out at the start of the season the away day trip to Sunderland ranked high upon peoples away games to do. One hell of a way to go for 90 minutes of football but seeing The Shrimpers playing in a...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 1

    Cast your mind back almost ten years; could you honestly see us reaching this pivotal moment in the history of Southend United? Back in 1998 the football club was skint; it couldn't pay its players, it couldn't pay its creditors, it couldn't pay the Inland Revenue; the future was so bleak that...

    Southend vs Southampton

    BATTLING BLUES GET WIN AT LAST What a difference a week makes. Morale and spirit hit a new low after last Saturday's abject performance against a very ordinary Wolves side. The local press ran a feature through the week revolving around the supporters views on what had gone wrong. Some -...
