    Theo Robinson and a Rare Southend United Visit

    So this weekend I made one of my rare visits to Roots Hall and brought my travel companion with me. She had never seen a live football match before and wasn't quite sure what to expect and if she'd like the experience. Her immediate impression was one of surprise in a good way. I said, "I just...

    Anton Ferdinand

    Rare for me to start a thread but I am genuinely curious to hear other fans opinions. It seems most people would agree that he has had a shocker of a season and he seems well past it. My Question is, what are other fans opinion of the man constantly on twitter talking about West Ham nearly...

    The price of football including Southend 2017

    Here's the link to the BBC webpage on the price of football in 2017. If you're not too bothered to read the report then I've included the calculator of cost so you can check the Blues or other teams out. Enjoy. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41901398...

    Who would you rather keep?

    With both our star men out of contract in the summer, who would you (hypothetically) rather keep? A few months ago I would've said Bentley but on recent form I think I'd rather keep Payne. Having a player like that who can carry the ball and beat defenders is so valuable, and quite rare.

    Browns Comments

    Southend United manager Phil Brown: "The season is petering out into nothing. I’m very disappointed at today’s performance without the ball. “The second, third and fourth goal were just unacceptable defending. “Harsh words have been said in there. “We lacked...

    Question Creams

    As we have a rare Saturday off tomorrow, the girlfriend wants to head to Creams in Southend. Firstly, where abouts is it? The address is no help as don't know road names in Southend. Is it off the high street? And if so, what shop is it near? Also, anyone else been before? Heard mixed reviews...

  13. 3,335 at Scunthorpe ....

    Our last win at Scunthorpe was in 1983 and what a win it was. A 6-1 away victory. Hat-trick for Steve Phillips, Pennyfather, Shepherd and a rare Stead goal (just 5 in 340 appearances). You wouldn't have seen our centre half on that day poncing around at the back from corners - it was Paul...

    So how good IS Daniel Bentley anyway...?

    There are already a number of threads on bids, contracts, tribunals, etc so we won't cover those here. Instead I want to focus a bit on the talent. Last week I had the opportunity to watch England at Wembley (from a very similar viewpoint/seating position to the one I have at Roots Hall) and...
  16. Programme search

    I'm just wondering if there might possibly be someone out there who could help me with a missing programme.....my collection of Southend always has just a few gaps 1955-61(rare/extremely expensive issues) but also lacks:OLDHAM v S.U. Played 25/4/98. If anyone has a spare copy,please pm me,I'd...
  17. Wycombe warning

    So, you play the mighty Wycombe Whingers synchronized diving team, eh? Some of you will know this but, for those who have not had the "pleasure" of watching Wycombe, you are in for a dreadful shock. Their stock-in-trade is to dive and feign injury on a truly industrial scale. Astonishingly, they...

    Phew

    What a result for the blue army. Wasn't expecting this. This is for the good of England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. Socialism cannot and will not be tolerated under our watch. People deserve opportunity, choice about key decisions, and strong leadership. Labour couldn't deliver and...
  19. Question Surprisingly good sporting events

    What have you seen where you were surprised just how good it is? NBA - It was at Madison Square Garden and the Knicks won (pretty rare) so it was something special. Yes it's end to end baskets but the show, fast pace and athleticism make it great to watch NFL - Sorry MK but live NFL is...
