    How old is your match day attire?

    On match day it's not uncommon to see baseball caps that are older than the invention of baseball caps worn by the more mature Southend supporter. I must be honest and say that I now don't have or wear anything of vintage status, but the reason for my ramblings is that yesterday I saw a guy...

    Paul Smith - 'his worse keeper eva' and other similar ramblings

    A thread to redefine goalkeeping standards and stop agendas cluttering up match report threads with pages and pages of arguments about Southend's number one. Please sound off here rather than make every thread an argument about Smith.

    First Southend game???

    Hey ppl, This is my first post so I thought a great icebreaker would be to see what memories people have of their first shrimpers game? Go easy on me as I not used to this forum posting marlarkey, but I promise to keep my ramblings to a minimum! My first game was on a glorious Saturday in...

    The worst day ive had since 1998

    Well i dont really know where to start. Yesterday was the worst day i have had since i got battered by thugs by liverpool street in 1998 and had a face like sloth (not much has changed ) and my arm was broken and resembled a piece of string. I was left wondering what was more painful...

    Football Pundits

    Is it me or are the majority of footy pundits idiots?! Watching England game last week and Andy Townsend was a complete f***in tool! Seriously, i thought Pleat was the worst and now him. Although i really do struggle to watch ITV sport in general. They really are clueless when it comes to...
  9. We Never Wanted the World Cup, Anyway...

    Well, you could see that coming, couldn’t you? Just as soon as the English World Cup bid gets off the ground, the English tabloids have set about dismantling it from afar. The news that Lord Triesman, chairman of the 2018 bid, has claimed that Spain and Russia are colluding to bribe...

    Working For a ***** Company

    As some of you will know, I work for a Rescue & Recovery Company which is not your average 9-5 sort of job. Most though not all who do this job expect long hours, all weather conditions and sometimes, the very real risk of serious injury or even death. It's the nature of the job (considered in...

    SUFC Official Programme and DoDtS

    Just to let you know that in this seasons Official Programme it will include a two page article written by me in every issue. These 23 articles tell the story of Season 1931-32 in greater detail than I believe has been previously published. They include match reports, extracts and original...
  12. Wonderful!! (The Ramblings of a nutter)

    Worley and Saah sign one year deals with an option of a second season. An as yet undisclosed left back signs a three year deal and is a gem. Ron martin speaks out before the end of the day slamming the doubters in the wake of todays petition being negated and all the doom and gloom mongers are...

    Ron's Blog 3/7/09

    Chairman's Blog I promised to let you have my thoughts upon my “likes and dislikes of the football industry”. I can sum this up in one four letter word beginning with f… yes you’ve got it FANS! My immediate thought is that the most likeable part of football is winning. However on reflection...

  15. Breaking News Ron's blog 24/02/09

    Whilst the rest of us were watching the match, Ron was emailing us his latest thoughts: I want to begin this week by thanking all our supporters who were able to attend the match at Colchester this weekend. The 1800 or so who made the journey across Essex showed, once again, what passion is...

    Cesc's Education

    A new era for Arsenal will begin tonight when Cesc Fabregas makes his debut as the captain of Arsenal. A touchy and defensive Arsene Wenger made the announcement at a press conference before the vital Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev. Wenger has come under sustained assault from the press...

    Cup against Non League opposition (1922)

    here's another one of DoDtS's history lesson, here's how it was when we played non league oposition in 1922 WORKSOP TOWN 1-2 SOUTHEND UNITED F.A.Cup 1st Round 7th JANUARY 1922 Worksop were a non league side, but so were we two seasons previously so this meant little. Worksop, which is in...

    Money Won't Buy Al-Fahim Success

    It may be billed as 'the clash of the cash', but if anyone at Manchester City thinks that their sky-rocketing bank balance automatically gives them parity on the pitch with Chelsea, then tonight's game is going to be a really nasty wake-up call. When you sweep away the tabloid headlines and the...
  19. Why is Jonny Stokes so quiet.

    After the Euphoria of his ramblings on here after Game 1 of the season and the diabolical theft of them drawing at their ground, all seems to have gone quiet....So I ask Members of the Zone ... Where's Johnny. I would hazzard a guess, under James's desk licking the feet of the fan whose team...

    BBC News

    Just at the present time the BBC seems to have a penchant for employing extremely weird, affected/afflicted, incredibly ugly news correspondents. Current example of this are Evan (look slightly to the left of the camera) Davis, presenting his economics reports in a camper manner than would...
