    Due to formatting problems the report isn't yet on the front page so here it is BLUES LAND TITLE IN ESSEX ONE-TWO The two Essex sides defied all the odds in League One by claiming both automatic promotion spots – with the Super Shrimpers deservedly landing the title. In fact, it was...

    ST.VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE AS BEES BASH BLUES Southends unbeaten run came to an abrupt end at Griffin Park as Brentford exacted revenge for the 4-1 drubbing dished out to them at the Hall a few weeks back. That scintillating performance seemed a million miles away as Southend were second best...

    NICE SCORE, SHAME ABOUT THE GAME Southend returned to the top of league one tonight after a professional but spluttering display against a team surely destined for league 2 if not extinction. The three points were, to be honest, courtesy of a first half mugging and Rotherhams total ineptitude...
  5. The soundtrack of your life

    So with all this talk of the Arctic Monkeys being the sound of a generation, post the significant songs here that have soundtracked your own life. For me... Depeche Mode - New Life The Jam - Going Underground Madness - Our House The sound of growing up in Basildon in the late 70s/early 80s...
  6. Todays Summary

    I read in the echo earlier this week, Gower was pleading "Give me time to come good". Now i know i'm just waiting for the other 9 or 10 players on the pitch to join him. Gower gave it his all for the 70 minutes he played today and showed some promise as a more than capable winger...

    Wiggy's ratings,

    Top Seven

    So, who does everyone reckon will be the top seven teams in League 2 at the end of the season? I think Yeovil are the best side & will win the League. Scunny are starting to lose their way a bit & won't make automatic, imho. Swansea are still looking good & Northampton are...

  10. Team for tom...

    After a below par performance on friday odds on Tilson will be making some changes to the side which will face the Cobblers tommorrow night. The most obvious one will be Maher coming back from his suspension.. but what others? Maybe Hunt as right back, is Bentley definately going to be along...
  11. Colchester and proud!

    Well done guys

    You lot certainly have something over us at the moment we never seem to play well against you these days. Although we had lost the sevices of 6 (not five ) key players last night we should not really use this as an excuse. We had no penetration up front and I knew despite a fair bit of...

    Mark Gower

    How much longer is Tilly going to continue picking a player who a shadow of his former self since his operation? I am sure I am not the only one who can see, as plain as day, that Gower is NOT FIT - nowhere near it from what I have seen this season. Gower had TWO chances yesterday that...

    West Ham kicked off and set a fantastic pace.  In the first minute Harewood was set loose in the box and bought a fine save from Bartman.  It was about 3 minutes before we touched the ball and to be fair the movement from the opposition pulled us all over the pitch.  We were however to have a...
  14. Bob Cratchitt

    With reference to the discussion ensuing on The New Stadium listing, I would urge Bob Cratchitt, whom I applaud for his knowledge and support of the subject, to See what our Southend council does and not listen to what they say. The two are rarely the same. Any town that could build the shopping...

    That's what one of the defenders on PFYC actually says!! Who've you been paying off, PoD? I can't even enjoy a bloody computer game without your omnipresent shadow lurking over me. **** off.

    Groundhog Day

    My favourite film... Sunday February 1, 2004 The Observer (Today) is Groundhog Day. Perhaps your diary does not remind you of this celebration; mine lists nothing between Epiphany and St Valentine's. Maybe because the 117-year-old Groundhog festival takes place in Punxsutawney, western...
