    How to make oneself feel better

    Couldn’t make today’s game. A weekend of getting ruined on Orkney whilst visiting a friend called. Maybe just because I’m half-cut but seems that singing anti-Col U songs at the top of my lungs in Kirkwall on a Saturday night makes me feel less suicidal about our current predicament. So what...

    Who has the best ever voice?

    Was thinking earlier when a Karen Carpenter song came on the radio. That was one lady who I think had a truly wonderful and unique voice. Yes, in many ways when you hear her sing it can make you feel sad even if she is singing a happy song given what happened to her at such a tragically young...

    Embarrassing post on Facebook Re our captain at Millwall

    The fact that a post explaining how the captain of Southend United showed his support for WHU at Millwall and the fact that it is a West Ham post "liked" by Shrimpers leaves me aghast. Add to that comments left by Southend United fans glorifying in singing "Millwall run from West...

    Memory Lane FA Cup First Round Memories

    What's yours? Sadly, the first one for me that always comes to mind is a haunting one. Top of the league, our beloved Shrimpers go on a winter **** up in the sun the week before and arrive in Aylesbury on 18 Nov 1989 arrogant and hung over. It was woeful, I don't think we had a shot all...

  7. Hello.....

    Hi everyone, I had to come up with a username so couldn't resist MrsTwistandShout due to the fantastic away crowd singing this song and doing a conga around Bury's stadium, which I had the pleasure to be part of for the final game of the season...The atmosphere and mood of the away support was...

    Question Would Southend have made it to Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy

    I was gutted to get knocked out at the area semi-final stage. But to lose in the Area final to a lower league side must be gutting. I wish I could've been a fly on the wall with all those smug Millwall fans who were singing "We're going to Wembley!!" during the semi-final at Roots Hall in...

    Have you been to Shrewsbury?

    Next away match Shrewsbury have you been there previously? My first visit was 27th October 1973, it was in the days of no organised transport and getting there was very expensive until we found a "Merrymaker" excursion. These were cheap trips aimed at families to visit places of historic...

    The positives of our supporters

    I thought the guys at the back of the North Stand (TBV, I assume) were absolutely fantastic yesterday. They had a wide variety of songs that was constant throughout the whole 90 mins. I was in E1 and the majority of the songs we could hear loud and clear, which enabled us to join in, and create...
  13. A slight dampener on the day

    Whilst echolng most comments on here regarding the great atmosphere and support etc etc, I hope the bellend who decided to kick in the seat as his way of celebrating White's goal, is feeling good about himself tonight. Talk about singing about inbreds, we had a fair share sitting (or should I...

    Sweet Caroline

    I'm thinking of starting a campaign to get Sweet Caroline made the club's anthem. In the past I've always said we should choose Daydream Believer because it meets my criteria: We should choose a song that is old so that it has already gone passed the naff phase a modern song would have to go...
  15. Wembley scarf twirling footage /pics ?

    Like most of us on here I've watched and re-watched every bit of video etc from Saturday that I can find from Saturday (which in 45 years plus of following my hometown club was up there with the best ever and will take some beating !!) , however there is one clip missing and that's some footage...

    Wembley memories

    Here are a few of mine Hearing 20000 Southend fans singing their hearts out. Piggots oh so late leveller. All the penalties, and the courage of our players having to take penalties at Wembley in front of braying Wycombe fans. Bentleys save. Timlin falling over the presentation stage and then...

I was born in Southend to a familys-worth of SUFC fans (Mum, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Grandparents etc) and have been an avid...

    Wembley Athmosphere Lets get it right

    Super support at the hall last night now we need to recreate it at Wembley. My aim by posting this is lets don't just make it a day out lets make loads of noise. When we were at Wembley for the Paint Trophy the thing that grated with me the most more so than the result was how quiet we were with...

    WEMBLEY Tickets

    Woops! I've posted this on the wrong forum, it should have been on the Away Travel forum. This Wembley fever is a terrible thing well might as well leave it where it is! I'm sure that this has/will be posted or quoted numerous times but I will leave here as a sticky for easy reference...
