  1. 3 weeks to go

    And still only two new faces .Most clubs have now got there squads and have bedded in there new faces .But once again it looks like we are going to bring in either loan players or last few days of pre season . I cant see why Phil Brown keeps saying that he wont be rushed into bringing new faces...

    The guy who abused Phillips

    Re the Gillingham no-mark thug who abused Phillips whilst walking alongside him: the stewards weren't exactly rushing over - I hope to hear that he has been banned from all home fixtures for his behaviour.

    Barcelona

    Hoping there may be a few people on here able to give some advice. I'm heading off to Barcelona late-June for 3 nights with the missus (10th wedding anniversary - kids staying at home!) and have booked some cheapish flights handily enough from Southend Airport, leaving Thursday morning and...

    Breaking News Season card prices for next season announced!!!

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10444~2325750,00.html Not sure people are going to be rushing out for these. With what we have seen this season i would have a further reduction would have been needed. The bottom line for most is an increase of £50 to £350. They must be the...

    Memory Lane Episode No 3 Season 1931-32

    Forget all the current gloom and doom for a minute or two and go back in time for a couple of minutes with Episode 3 that appeared in the Southend v Leyton Orient programme: No. 3 A GOOD START NOW TWO HOME GAMES Southend had started the season with three straight wins, all by two goal margins...

    There not another........

    There's not another........ Saturday league home game until the 12th December which in my opinion is ridiculous. I know the whole Friday night versus Saturday afternoon argument has been done to death but I'm pretty disappointed that the club has swung so much in favour of hosting games on a...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings The reserve game today

    After making the near 60 mile round trip, down the wet and windy, extremely hazardous A127, I thought I might as well post my thoughts on the game. I thought it came across quite strongly which of the two teams had half a team of first teamers out there, although unfortunately for us it was...
  9. NFL: It's a Dog Eat Dog World for Vick...

    The NFL season starts next week, and no player will be more thankful to be a part of the big Kick Off than Philadelphia's Michael Vick. Vick, fresh from serving 18 months of a 23 month sentence for running an illegal dog-fighting ring, saw his indefinite suspension from the League repealed in...
  10. And Now to Sky, For the Greatest Show on Earth...

    My seat on the sofa is reserved, my snacks and drinks are set, my TV is set to channel 405 and we're all ready to go for the latest Summer Blockbuster that is transfer window deadline day 2009. At least, that's what Sky would have you believe is going on in living rooms across the country. The...

    EPL Has Nothing To Fear From Below

    If you think it's tense at the top of the Premier League, you should see The Championship at this stage of the season. With a collection of runners and riders who all seem incapable of stringing consecutive wins together, it's the division that no-one wants to win. Wolverhampton Wanderers have...

    Dire Chelsea Give Scolari Headache

    They say that fortune favours the brave, but apparently the deal isn't exclusive. On a miserable night in Southern France, the fates took a shine to a substandard, disappointing Chelsea side who should have seen their Champions League hopes laid to waste, but somehow survived to snatch a vital...
  13. Mr Gilbo

    I would rather...

    Spend my hard earned money that I would normally spend on matchday tickets on strippers at the Katz Club! I feel I would get a lot more enjoyment out of my cash, even if it was only last 5 minutes or so. Last night was the first time I have been able to get to a game this season and I don't...
  14. Whats Your Flava?

    Wasn't exactly thrilled by this lot when they were on Britains Got Talent. So simple really will you be rushing in to this lot perform?

    The fbm view - Canvey

    I'm not going to do a report as such, but will offer just a few comments about tonights performance... if you can call it that having drawn 0-0 against a poor Canvey outfit. This time last year a side containing such stalwart strikers as Billy Paynter and Matt Harrold thrashed Canvey 6-1. We...

    Fantastic,can't wait for a new season!

    You all thought it would be another shambles.Watching Hooper run into space past the last man,rushing towards the goal only to see the ball bounce off his knee and roll out:(Then he goes out on loan and can't stop scoring,typical! Well,looks like he's off. Another one who we won't have to endure...

    The fbm report - Port Vale

    I'm just about to head out for the day so won't get the chance to put this on the front page, so here's the final fbm report of the regular season. Enjoy! APATHY REIGNED – AND WE ALL GOT WET. Southend failed to finish their main season with a bang as they were held to a draw by the bottom side...

    Showaddywaddy Crew Crewe trip report!!!

    Crewe vs SUFC - 6 HOURS TO CREWE Apologies for the lateness of this report, unfortunately my laptop decided to pack up at the most inconvenient time possible. There may be bits missed out because I have forgotten some details but here’s the report anyway as per usual (albeit a little late) of...

    Feed back please.

    Hi all. I play for my local football team- Hadleigh Athletic, and have been writing match reports after the games. Ive always had a liking for writing, especially football reports. Just wondered if anyone would mind reading one of my reports and telling me if they think its any good. Its a bit...
