    Is Easter being hijacked?

    I see that many so-called Christians are now trying to claim that Easter is something to do with the death of Jesus. In Britain we have known for years that the true meaning of Easter is about scoffing hot cross buns and chocolate eggs. First they take over Christmas, now Easter- where will it...
  2. Ref Watch ...... TV Ref Crawley

    Tonight's referee is Neil Swarbrick from Preston. A very experienced official who, at the start of this season, joined the Select Group of Premiership referees. He is being eased in gently with just 8 Premiership games so far, virtually all of them fairly low key. He is making his Roots Hall...
  3. Ref Watch ..... Aldershot

    The dead hand of dead-eyed Darren Deadman will be in charge of tonight's second attempt to get this match played. Deadman, from Chatteris, Cambridgeshire is a civil servant, specifically a public transport officer for Peterborough City Council. In his seventh season as a League referee he has...
  4. Ref Watch ....... Port Vale

    Man in charge as we try to get our home form back on track and pick up our first 3 points at Roots Hall for just over two months will be second year referee Brendan Malone from Salisbury refereeing his fourth Southend match. He was in charge of the "dead" match, our fourth game against...

    Are things really that bad

    As most football fans know form and results usually go in cycles. We had a bit of a dodgy start to the campaign, then we had a good run of 17 games (although we all know that should of been 1 or 2 less really), and we are now on a run of 5 without a win. Tonight's game is an ideal opportunity...

    The A to Z of Bilel Mohsni

    I don't know how many people have seen this A to Z of Mario Ballotelli? http://footballspeak.com/post/2011/10/24/The-A-to-Z-of-Mario-Balotelli.aspx I thought we could do a Shrimperzone Mohsni one. Add any wierd and wonderful facts or anocdotes added a couple already after googling him and...
  7. Pre-Match Thread Southend United V Bristol Rovers

    Bristol Rovers come down to Roots Hall on Saturday, safe say to there not looking foward to this. Loads of there fans want Buckle gone and Bristol Rovers team spirit seems to be very much down. Chris Zebroski has had his say. So a good chance to make it 16 games unbeaten but also a game...

    Official Match Thread Southend United v Preston F.A. Cup

    So, after all the talk of changes, there is only one............good bit of PSology! With our form and that of PNE, I don't know why I am so lacking in confidence about us winning tonight?

    One change for Blues in replay

  12. Memory Lane On this day 25 years ago ....

    ...... we played Preston away and lost 2-0. 28 years ago today we lost a cup replay at Plymouth also 2-0. 31 years ago today we lost a cup match at home to Hereford, this time only 1-0 however 35 years ago today we won a cup replay at home to Exeter (those who went to the first drawn match...
  13. Ref Watch ..... Preston replay

    Returning to Roots Hall for the second time in under 5 weeks, tomorrow's referee is Darren Deadman, a civil servant from Cheshunt. His last and recent performance against Torquay was not his worst appearance here by a large margin; he showed 9 yellow cards in a staggering display of...

    Latest Rumours New Competition

    From what I heard when I got my Preston tickets theres a new HT competition, which gets the winning ticket holder a chance to hit the cross bar from the edge of the penalty box. Prize (and I'm pretty sure I heard it right) is a Mercedes!
