  1. Devonshire at it again !

    Cannot fathom out why AD has never had the chance at league level,taking Braintree almost there was a minor miracle,now Maidenhead nicely placed in 7th after a solid start,wouldn't shock me if MU reach the PO.
  2. York-shire!

    So a great result last night and, bearing in mind that our last two away victories were at Sheffield United and Barnsley (I think), can anyone confirm exactly how good our recent record is in this vast county ?

  4. Ref Watch ..... Port Vale A

    The referee in charge of tomorrow's match is a member of the Select Group of Premiership referees working his way back in to the game after a long injury. He is Lee Probert from Wiltshire spending his 44th birthday at Port Vale. He has actually only refereed 7 Premier League matches in the last...
  5. Ref Watch .... Chesterfield H

    Chesterfield's last two trips to Roots Hall finished 3-0 to us, so a third 3-0 would good, albeit unlikely based on Tuesday's team selection and performance. Saturday's referee is a bald man from the armed forces, which will not please everybody! However he's not the worst example of that ilk...
  6. Ref Watch .... Doncaster H

    With matches against Doncaster tied at 13 wins apiece, tomorrow brings a referee who we hope will do much better than in his last Southend game. The man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He was fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably...
  7. Ref Watch .... Colchester A

    Firstly, festive greetings to all, even referees. League matches at Colchester this century have been alternating wins ..... and it's our turn ! The man in charge will be Phil Gibbs from Birmingham. He is employed as Deputy Headteacher at Kings Heath Boys School, a secondary school in the...
  8. Ref Watch ..... Millwall H JPT

    As we try to preserve our 100% record in all cup competitions against Millwall, the man in charge of tomorrow's match needs little introduction. It will be Simon Hooper from Swindon refereeing Southend for the seventh time in his 8th season as a League referee. On Swindon’s books as a junior he...
  9. Ref Watch ....... Blackpool H

    League matches against Blackpool are nicely balanced at seven wins each (with two draws) but we have won four out of our last five home matches against them. Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his 7th year as a League referee and refereeing his 10th Southend game. It will be...
  10. Ref Watch ..... Peterborough (H)

    The man in charge of tomorrow's early kick off will be Simon Hooper from Swindon refereeing Southend for the sixth time in his 8th season as a League referee. On Swindon’s books as a junior he was released at the age of 16 and turned his attentions towards refereeing. He also represented...
  11. Ref Watch .... Wycombe at Wembley

    Well, this is the 54th and final Refwatch of the extended season. Ten years ago, we were in the League Two Playoff Final. The referee in charge on that occasion, Martin Atkinson, was refereeing a European Champions League semi-final a couple of weeks ago and in a week’s time he will be...

    English wine

    Does anybody buy it and what are their thoughts? I am in the process of setting up a small vineyard (think 1/2 an acre with approx 50 vines) which I thought would be a bit of fun and any wine from it would be for family consumption given away etc and not to turn a profit. However have had an...
  13. Ref Watch ..... Stevenage A

    Tomorrow we visit a team we've never lost to but we have a referee who we have never got a point with - one of those records will have to go! Man in charge tomorrow is 34-year old, Geoff Eltringham from Sunderland. He is in his sixth season as a League referee and will be refereeing just his...

    Memory Lane Best away fans at Roots Hall

    Now we know we have a good vocal away following, and have been commended for our fans at such places as Southampton in the Championship, and Doncaster to name but two. But who do you think have been the best/ most vocal/ funniest , or memorable opposition fans for whatever reason. For me, I...
  15. Ref Watch ........ Northampton H

    Saturday brings the 114th competitive match between Southend and Northampton including league games, play offs and various cups. Currently the aggregate score is tied at 183-183. Their last 3 visits to Roots Hall have all seen matches producing a red card. Is Saturday's referee a man to bring...

    Browns replacement

    So as we have another brown out thread raging along nicely I thought i would ask, if not Brown then who? I have a few names off the top of my head I would plump for 1. Alan Devonshire, last season with Braintree was simply brilliant. 2. Justin Edinburgh 3. Martin Ling I am primarily thinking...
  17. Ref Watch ....... Bury H

    Matches against Bury of late have been nothing if not close. The last 5 have been draws and the 5 before that were either draws or 1-0s. Tomorrow's referee is a bald man from the armed forces, which will not please everybody! However he's one of the better ones of that ilk. Man in charge will...

    Grimsby Town F.C. petition for new stadium

    http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/north-east-lincolnshire-council-support-for-a-community-stadium-and-leisure-complex-at-peaks-parkway Now this below is well worth a read, done over four years ago upon relegation to non league. I'm yet to see a better post anywhere. It's the reason why I've...

    And Another One.

    It seems they can't help themselves. This time it's the Swindon Mayor: BBC
  20. How honest (or dumb) are you?

    So a woman finds £60K floating in a river in Lincolnshire and hands it to the police. Turns out she'll probably not get a penny of it and legally she could have kept it. Me - that'd go in my bank account, even if it has come from nefarious means. You?
