  1. Club's Twitter Account

    Having scoured the club's twitter account to find the twitter handle for a specific player I've come across a somewhat surprising list of accounts that the club currently follows - including: - Mark Wright (Kevin Keegan's son-in-law) - Adam Richman (Man v Food) - Jamie Oliver (Pukka pies) -...

    Question Are we currently better or worse equipped for the Championship than 2005/2006?

    Was talking to a mate about this the other day and trying to decide if we are currently better or worse equipped for the Championship than we were when winning League One in the 2005/2006 season. 2005/2006: Goalkeepers: Darryl Flahavan, Bart Griemink Defenders: Duncan Jupp, Che Wilson, Lewis...
  3. Our best defensive and strike partnerships

    Phil Brown's comment in his Echo interview after the Peterborough match that he had stuck with Cox and Fortune up front because they have developed such a good mutual understanding set me thinking about great partnership pairings in attack and in central defence that I have seen over the course...

    Is it possible to complete an XI of ex-Southend players who are now, or have been TV personalities? GK - Terry Alderton (comedian and actor) RB - Mark Wright (TOWIE/I'm a Celeb/Strictly) CB - Spencer Prior (TV football analyst in Australia) CB - LB - RM - Andy Ansah (Dream Team/Street...

    25 Years ago today

    We beat Chester City 1-0 at home with a header from Spencer Prior. We thought we had done enough to avoid relegation to Div 4 but Reading score two late goals (cant remember who Reading were playing) to win and send us down with a very high 54 points. Anyone spot themselves in these photos...
  6. John White

    Extremely impressed by White, very professional, great attitude, settled in quickly and leading by example. I hope we can hang onto him, could turn out to be a long serving loyal servant in the mould of Paul Clark / Adam Barrett / Spencer Prior. That's what we have lacked in recent seasons and...

    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    ORM/Buddhism/Southend players

    Just seen the relevation that ORM is considering buddhism. With this in mind: what Southend player would you like to be reincarnated as: given their career, their earnings, respect etc? I'd go for Spencer Prior - played in Europe, played in the top division, won promotions for us in two...

    Southend United Signed Shirt 2006/07 Help Needed

    Hi All, I’ve had a signed shirt from the 2006/07 season for quite a while and though it was about time I found out who all the signatures where for. I managed to get Matt Harrold to take the shirt to Boots and Laces and he popped it back to me later. I’ve worked out a few of the signatures...

    Oldest XI

    Not sure if this has been done before, but the talk about Christian Dailly got me thinking - how about an oldest XI to turn out for the Blues, go by their age the LAST time they played for us. GK RB LB CB - Spencer Prior (36) CB - Graham Coughlan (36) - yet to play since turning 37 CM CM RM LM...
  11. Point of youth team ?

    Since 1967 I have heard every year what a great youth team we have, and “The future is rosy”. But the truth is how many have gone on to a have a football career? Many have great promise but finish up at Canvey. So my question is there a point of having a youth team as the only local youth team...

    Expensive XI

    Earlier today, I was thinking of players who have played for Southend and have, at some point in their career, been transferred for big money. I didn't get very far before thinking that it would do nicely for a thread on here. I'll start things off with a few players, let's see if we can get...

    Southend players you've seen score more own goals than goals in the right net

    Anthony Grant was in danger of making this list until his goalscoring spree earlier this season, but what Southend players have you seen in the flesh score more own goals, than goals in the correct net (league only)? 1. Drewe ****ing Broughton - I saw him play 25 league games for us and his...

    Spencer Prior

    Sitting on Manly Beach in Sydney having a coffee this morning and who should stroll by but Spencer Prior. Had a chat about our plight of which he was well aware and he looked like he could still do a job for us. Top bloke!

    Andy Ansah

    Picked this up off the net.....quite a good read for those who remember the legends of the early 90's... Andy Ansah’s wing wizardry for Southend United between 1990 and 1996 helped propel the club into the upper echelons of English football, as the Shrimpers bagged back-to-back promotions from...
