    What needs to happen for next season to be a success?

    We are essentially a couple of results from safety. We have a squad of players who are fairly old or very young. Quite a few who are injury prone and some who quite frankly haven't earned their money with performances. I don't usually advocate wholesale changes but we have to make quite a few...
  2. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...

    Sammy the Shrimper

    Not sure where to put this, but a lovely story re the Funeral of Sammy the Shrimp from BBC Dave, 34, from Manchester, was Manchester City’s Moonchester from 2000 to 2008. If you’re not familiar with Moonchester, it’s basically a massive, sky-blue alien. One of the stories he told us was about...

  5. Bill Garner is celebrating his 70th Birthday today 14 Dec

    All this reminiscing we have been doing got me thinking that Bill Garner probably doesn't get the recognition his performances in the 1971/72 promotion team deserve. Today is his 70th Birthday !! Bill joined us in November 1969 from Southern League Bedford Town for around...

  13. Where will Bentley rate for you?

    Now Bentley has surpassed Mervyn Cawston's excellent clean sheet record from 80/81, where do/will people rate him amongst our other great custodians? I'm a fan of stats, longevity, performances & achievements when it comes to debating my best ever team and with that in mind does (or will)...

    Nathan Jones

    I see Nathan Jones featured on the left for Brighton today in their 1-0 play off final victory. Must have been quite buzz for the fella winning at the Millenium Stadium.
  15. Memory Lane Three matches in nine days

    My trip to finally see Southend live, is now officially done and dusted, but the memories will live on. Made possible by an amazing 16 year old son, who spent his hard earned savings on tickets and my beautiful wife who encourage it and covered the accommodation and spending money... :thumbsup...

    Bill Best the start of the Legend

    The bill best story As mark of respect for Bill Bests 70th birthday I thought would recall my memories of his first few games. In 1967-68 Southend started seven games unbeaten and were top of the table at this stage, by the new year we had fluctuated between 1st and sixth, but when Bill signed...
  20. A Huge Thankyou

    Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say a huge thankyou to everyone who took the time out to come and watch my performance before the game on Saturday - I was really flattered by the response I got, particularly to the two songs I played that I've written for my album, and I even enjoyed the soaking I...
