  1. Shameful! (and I'm not talking about the football)

    I've not seen anyone else mention this, so I felt the need to post... We arrived at Bramall Lane to be greeted by a worryingly large number of blues 'supporters' chanting racist nonsense about shooting German bombers down. (This was a large, vocal group collected around the bars inside the...

    Question Disgusting drunken antics

    Apparently according to North Wales Shrimper the antics and the green man were shameful!!!!! We should be locked up! Discuss...

    Memory Lane Greatest Zone post/thread ever!

    Inspired by Pubey's thread about greatest posts of 2012, just spent some time hunting out some of my favourites from years gone by. Some cracking stuff out there... I'll kick off with a couple of gems... ****les adventures in Leyton (couldn't qoute so follow link!)...

    Orient fan moaning about penalty shoot out

    I have been sent on the following email from an Orient fan complaining about unsporting behaviour from our tannoy announcer. Personally i didnt hear the noice described - anyone else?? This fella has complained to Southend, Orient & the football League.. Subject: Southend United vs Leyton...

    Rebecca Black - oh dear...

    Don't know if this has been mentioned yet in here, but there is currently an absolutely dreadful song doing the rounds. Auto-tuned to hell, rumours are this girl has a rich dad who paid quite a bit of money for her to get this produced. Lyrics are so bad, it is beyond a joke! And in an...

    Video evidence of our quiet fans!

    So throughout the whole game, I try and do what I said I'd do! TRY AND GET THE CROWD GOING AROUND ME! (V BLOCK) I sing the whole game, ALONE! This is what I try and get singing! It's sort of an impossible job. There will be more of these videos, if you spot yourself in one of these...
  7. Thank you Steve, for the best 6 years of my Southend supporting life.

    My football club has changed, and I feel sort of empty today. For decades I supported Southend, and people would say "Who?" or "Southampton...?" or (most painfully) "Why???". And I dreamed of the day when I could casually mention my slightly strange affiliation, and people would nod, and look...
  8. Will you vote on May 6th?

    Whatever the colour, whatever the policies, whatever the leader, will you be doing your democratic duty on May 6th? I work as a poll clerk and the turn out in recent (non Parliamentary) elections has been around the 30% mark which is fairly shameful in my eyes. Anonymous poll, but if you have a...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...

    PL Weekly Points Round 9

    Shameful ... its the only way to describe this weeks efforts .. 5 players scored only 1 point each, but if you think that is poor then there are another 7 who actually achieved less than that :doh: Drastic Sturgeon takes this weeks honours with a mere 7, one ahead of essexblue, SUFC Al and...
  11. Jade Goody - RIP

    Apparently, she'll be lucky to see Wednesday. There'll be Big TV Screens outside her funeral to show the funeral processions to her fans, which is bad enough, but this particular quote in The Sun almost made me sick... "A host of celebrities will attend the funeral — which could be the...

    Ted Kennedy Given Honorary Knighthood

    Ted Kennedy has been awarded an honorary knighthood by the British government. Why? This is a man who constantly supported the IRA at the height of "The Troubles" and is suspected of using his high ranking Irish mates to raise cash for them via Noraid in the 1970's. He has never been a...

    PL Weekly Points Round 39

    UNBELIEVABLE JEFF !!!!!!!!!!! Fair enough in a way, there were a few dodgy results last night, but for 11 of you to get only 1 point or less is shameful really .. so lets take a look at the or less shall we ?? Step forward The Brothers Grimm (SUFC Al and Brettie Angell) who, along with seves...
  14. Dave of the Match

    Our top scorer hasn't played in 3 MONTHS?!

    Doesn't anyone else find this shameful?

    Interview with an Exile: Part 7 - Sufc_girl

    This week, Rachel (Sufc_girl) from Canada answers the questions. Apologies for the 18's rating on the thread, this was put there merely to make her feel a little more nervous than she no doubt already is :D Below is Rachel with her new fella... 1) How long have you been an exile? A)...

    Paying to Park - Daylight Robbery

    Now, before i name and shame two places i think are disgaceful, i think it is important to point out that i havent got anything against paying to park in general, and that we should pay for facilities we use... however, the two below cases i feel are pure profitering money grabbing.. 1. Alton...

    Sir Bobby Robson

    a real shame but it seems to have been on the cards for a while. From the Sun website. ----------- BOBBY ROBSON has won countless battles during a career which has earned him a permanent place in the nation’s hearts. But his latest fight, sadly, will be his last. English football’s favourite...

    Most embarassing moment as a Shrimper

    Further to the Pub thread "Most toe-curling moment" I thought I'd create a specific one related to your time as a Southend United fan. I've got 3 actually. First one is when I almost fell out of the front row of the South Upper after Mike Marsh's 92nd minute winner against Ipswich in 1996. As...

    Sleeping Through The Dawn of Capello

    There’s something very special about setting your alarm to go off a couple of hours early and slipping out of bed to watch the sun come up. It’s uplifting to watch a new dawn break, with a mug of coffee in your hand. To think about the possibilities and the opportunities, to convince yourself...

    If Barnsley & Leeds...

    People say we shouldnt be hoping other teams do us favours but due to our absolutely shameful performances lately if Barnsley and Leeds win today, we are relegated. Simple as... but we are not relegated unless these teams start winning! Now lets all support Ipswich, Coventry, Plymouth and...
