  1. Benezema

    Has anyone else been following this? The rumours are that he could end up with a long stint inside. Also Nasri might be dragged into it as he's rumoured (by Le Monde) to have offered to act as an intermediary in the blackmail. A crazy, bizarre and pretty terrible thing for all concerned...
  2. Ryan Hall Return?

    Hi all, Hearing that Ryan Hall walked out of Leeds on Friday night after a disagreement about the amount of game time he gets and about something he posted on a networking site about pay. I reckon its 50/50 between Blues fans who would welcome him back and fans who wouldn't. Obviously pay would...

    Charlton v M'boro and the ex-Blues contingent

    We went to Charlton v Middlesbrough on Saturday and was amazed at the number of Blues on show. Middlesbrough had ex loanee George Friend playing at left back, he is a classy full back as he was on his brief stint here. Charlton was like a mini Southend's finest XI They had Dorian Dervitte...

    Chico Hamilton

    Nice article here. He retired last year to move to Florida after a stint coaching in Ohio http://www.thisweeknews.com/content/stories/worthington/sports/2012/05/16/boys-soccer-praise-comes-with-jabs-for-retiring-hamilton.html
  5. Last Night - The worst performance since when?

    Last night was pretty shocking. The only comparable "performance" that came to mind was the 0-2 disaster at home to Boston at the tail-end (might even have been his last game) of Wignall's stint in charge. Anyone else come up with anything worse.
  6. Cameron Belford take 3 ?

    Should Paul Smith be out for a while , Cameron Belford is being lined up for his third loan stint at the Club. Unless Smith misses in which case Bentley will keep goal against Exeter. Source : The Echo. If Belford re-appears is this a sign no one wants him or we lucky to possibly have him back?
  7. Question Jeroen Boere

    I was told out of the blue today that Jeroen Boere sadly took his own life several years back. Can anyone back this up? If true was anything wrong? So sad to hear this as I honestly didn't know. During his stint with us he was one I spoke to frequently. Quite choked about this. RIP Jerone.

    Warnock sacked by QPR

    No real surprise, always whining and moaning about something, though if he has no control over which players come in to or leave the club i'm surprised he didn't just walk I used to have time for him, especially for his Sheff United stint, but since he landed a job with money available and the...

    Matt Harrold 'stronger' after "miserable" Southend stint

    I really hope he has a poor game but sometime tells me yet again he will score against us? also i doubt after his "miserable" stint here he got better he just joined lower league teams BBC Link http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/15887817.stm

    Driving Instructors - yes I know, again!

    Hello, me again, has anyone come across Drive2Us.com and used them for driving lessons? I've just come across them on the internet and they are charging £16ph, which is bloody cheap. I've just completed a disastrous 5 lesson stint with Red Driving School, who I would not recommend at all as the...
  11. Photo Request: Bobby Moore at Southend

    Just wondering if any one has any photos or images of Bobby Moore during his short Stint as a Shrimper?

    BOGMISH Rd 1:4 - LDV v Championship

    Not the most inspiring round today following yesterday's nail-biter (voting still open), but we've got Donkey Broughton's goal up against some optimism in the sun. First up is Silencer's choice, which surprisingly appears to be the only nomination involving Col Ewe (presumably as people were...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-0 Yeovil Town

    Southend United 0 Yeovil Town 0 Well, what a waste of an afternoon that was. Nathan Jones gave us more entertainment than anything that actually happened on the pitch. The players have given up the fight it seems on that showing, so League Two will surely follow. Some questionable tactics again...
  14. Five Star Pac Man Reigns Supreme.

    If ever there was any doubt regarding Manny Pacquiao's claim to the pound-for-pound crown, it was swept away with a simply stunning performance last night. The Phillipino, dubbed Pac Man, stormed to a win over the supremely talented Miguel Cotto and, in doing so, claimed his fifth world title...

    Right you 'Orrible lot!

    Being as I'm now apparently Sergeant OBL, I thought I'd grab your attention...... We have just 12 volunteers for bucket duty tonight and I'm pretty disgusted by that. Come on people, I reckon that is less than HALF of what we need. I do appreciate some people get down there later than...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Spencer Prior

    Four places (I think) left to fill and next up is Spencer Prior, albeit a day late in Ron Martin style. -------------------------------------------------- Separated by over a decade, Spencer Prior had two very different careers with Southend. Either would be sufficient to get him in the Hall of...

    Inverness sack manager Craig Brewster

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle have parted company with manager Craig Brewster after a run of seven consecutive league defeats. The Highland club sit bottom of the Scottish Premier League table, one point adrift of 11th-placed Falkirk. Brewster was in his second spell at the club, having...

    Huddersfield, the Irish, and rogues gallery

    Got back late yesterday afternoon from my weekend trip over for the defeat against Huddersfield. Took a couple of pics, as did Rich (The Big Shrimp) - A couple of which where I got to meet Mr Alan McCormack after the match :) L-R: OBL, Macca, Ricey, Me L-R: toellandback, Ricey...

    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report: Huddersfield Town (H) 13/12/08

    6 Points None The Richer. Saturday's game against Huddersfield town is a definate 6 pointer for the Shrimpers. They are directly below us and if Huddersfield win they go above us, this is something we don't want to happen and why this game is of great improtance to us. I think a major issue...
