    Pre Gig Thread - Moyet at The Cliffs Today

    OK, in the absence of a match due to the multi-talented superstars of Oldham going off globe-trotting there is one event for Shrimpers today in Southend - Moyet at The Cliffs. Hopefully a rendition of 'Blue' will make it to the set list. Any other Shrimpers going? Pre-match pub is The Cliffs...

    Phil Brown CD

    Hi my first post...and I have a question..I am sure we all remember Phil Brown's rendition of "my way". What song would you want him to put on his next CD and who would you dedicate it to??? My choice would be a special version of a Dr Feelgood classic "He's a windup" dedicated to Moshni...

    Question Football related injuries?

    On Boxing Day over here I went to see Brisbane away at Gold Coast. In line with many away days watching Southend it was a cracking day out (however I've never drunk beer overlooking a beach like Surfers Paradise whilst watching the Mighty Shrimpers) spoiled only by the football (we got beat...

    'Karaoke Capers'

    I was a bit of a late convert to 'Karaoke Capers.' In the early nineties, I could be seen grimacing and tutting in the corners of various hostelries, muttering about the murdering of The Clash's 'Should I Stay...' by misbegotten meatheads and generally being a bit of a misery when the wannabee...

    White Hart Lane

    I always enjoy a trip to White Hart Lane. Sure, it's in the middle of the north-east London badlands, a destination made even more remote by London Transport's fascination with shutting down the tube on match day, but there are consolations. For starters, there's the stadium itself, a hulking...

    Fight, fight, fight

    Dear All I do hope you consider this on Saturday. How about a rendition of the Itchy and Scratchy Show theme from The Simpsons, adapted for Roots Hall? 'We fight, we fight, We fight, we fight, we fight, Fight, fight, fight Fight, fight, fight, The Southend United Fans' All done in good...

    best chant of the day

    Being held at the entrance to Fulham Broadway station, a police woman on horse back with loud hailer was trying to explain why we were being held there, but was totally incoherent. A quick rendition of uwot uwot uwot uwot I found quite amusing:goodun:

    Apprentice week 9

    Don't know how many were watching what with some football match going on in Russia, thought this was going to be a pretty naff task this week, but what a shock at the end. Teams were shaken up again, pitching Alex as SAS's choice of PM with Lee and Lucinda in Alpha against PM Raef (again...

Barretts good, Barretts good, Running down the pitch, Barretts good, Barretts good, Here the Southend sing, He ain't got no hair, We don't f*cking care, To be honest, I'm a little concerned about the...
  13. Wakering Away Trip

    The Evening was a total success. We managed to lose Scott within minutes of entering the Stadium (always a plus point) and were welcomed by the home crowds rendition of "Green Army" by the packed East stand. ( I have no idea what that was about). It was nice for the Trialist from Charlton to...

    How to break the Spurs

    Took my old dad up to WHL couple of years back as a birthday treat as he was an avid Spurs boy in the Greavsie era. Whilst there i noticed all the singing started from the Park Lane end and the rest of the ground followed suit. Well,seeing as we've all got their seats i'm kinda...

    The Go! Team

    Seeing as the Pub is looking musical at the moment.... Went to xfm's Winter Wonderland at the Brixton Academy last night. Of all the bands scheduled to play, I have to say The Go! Team were the ones I was least bothered about seeing. However, they were absolutely fantastic. That band have more...

    Amusing Stewarding at MK Dons

    I must make some comment on the hysterically stewarding experienced at Roots Hall last Saturday during the Spanish Shrimpers annual visit to the UK. The main view is from our position in the East Stand (first half East Greens [before some old fart made a comment about day-tripping, I kid ye not]...

  18. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset


    Last banged on about this idea pre Yeovil game....apparently parties were enthusiastic but she had a prior engagement. Well, what about trying to sort something out now? Maybe need to wait for the fixtures to come out, then give her the list & ask her to take her pick. As a True Blue...

    I blame...

    As soon as I saw them displaying the brand spanking new League 2 trophy this morning, I knew that was about as close as any Southend fans would get to it this season (well done boys for showing us up with the naff rendition of "Is This The Way to League Promotion?" too). The fact that...
