    Junior Blues News Latest newsletter

    Not very often I do this, but I am linking to an article in the most recent newsletter by a very brave Junior Blue whose mummy died suddenly a year ago. If it doesn't hit you in the feels then you're a stronger person than most. (Still having issues with enlarging images!)

    PS 4 or XBox One.

    I am buying a console for my children and access will be dictated by good behaviour and schoolwork. I haven't bought a new console since the PS2 and am torn between the PS4 (I might want to play PES, Metal Gear and Gran Turismo) and the XBox One (which seems to have much stronger parental...
  3. England

    What a cracking game against the Argies this evening. It had more twists and turns than a roller-coaster! Eddie Jones has been a revelation since taking over our national side. We're looking much stronger than the British Lions at the moment.

    sick shrimper

    To anyone over in the East Blacks who knows Keith Lockwood. Just to let you know he's been a sick bunny with chest infection type stuff. He's on the mend, getting better and stronger but won't be there Sunday. He will be renewing his season ticket, so you should see him next Season. Just...
  5. Time to discard the coloured cards

    For a while now I have thought that a yellow and a red card were insufficient to determine the severity of numerous types of fouls in games; after Saturday at Gillingham I feel even stronger that something needs to be done. Why can we not have a RANGE of punishments shown by a value rather than...
  6. Official Match Thread Southend United V Scunthorpe United

  7. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend 1-3 Gillingham

    Oxley - 4 - Not an impressive debut for me. Doesn't come for many crosses, and when he does he makes a big mistake to ultimately cost us a goal. Didn't look particularly interested during the match. Kicks are very long but mostly resulted in a loss of possession! Coker - 6 - Not a bad...

    Question Who's going to be better - jack or jack ?

    3 Years ago i watched a few games in which both Jack Payne and Jack Bridge were playing. I said to mates at the time the better player was Bridge. I likened him to Adam Lallana and bet them that in 5 years time Bridge would be playing at a higher standard of football than Payne. Now my...

    The Squad

    It's looking good, we've strengthened by bringing in as permanent signings McLaughlin and Pigott from Championship clubs, a Championship defender (Rea) on a 6 month loan plus O'Neill who is absolute quality, a very experienced striker in Noel Hunt, plus experienced L1 players in Mooney and...

  11. Match Thread - Season 30

    Week 1 pops were rubbish, Med x 3 for the main team, and Comp (low) / Med / Med for the Franchise. Main team home in the Cup against a team ranked 300 places lower. Happy days, until I realised they have 5 NT's in their side :thumbdown: Franchise at home to a team slightly stronger, but should...

    How far can this side go?

    After a very solid start and a good performance by the fringe players against higher league opposition I was wondering how far this team can go. Personally think we have a stronger and more exciting squad than last year who really have a very good chance of finishing top 3. How does this team...

    Fifa 15, who is getting it for PS3/4

    Does anyone is looking forward to play Fifa 15 on PS3 or 4? Southend Utd will look better and stronger for online gaming as we added pace into attack lol
  14. Fewest goals conceded in League 2!

    After today's results we have the best defensive record in League 2, just 10 goals conceded in 12 games. Could this be the key to success this season? Personally thought Kiernan was fantastic last night and looks a much stronger player than Prosser.
  15. Jan 2013 is fast approching

    With the new year fast approching games are running out for our two loan stars in midfield .Now its straight forward as i can see it keep one or both Laird and Mkanadwire which seemes to make the team stronger .Since both arrived we have gone on this fantastic run of unbeaten games . I would...
  16. DIVISION 1 or DIVISION 2 ??

    I read earlier that most the current squad ( apart from Phillips ) are contracted for next season. Assuming this is correct , would fans prefer to go up this year and probably struggle in Div 1 with the squad we have - relegation ??? Or be stronger for one more years experience as a team and...

    OD - Week 4

    ShrimperZone CC v Stansfield Superjets Superjets sit bottom but picked up an elite all rounder last week so are stronger but they only have 8 first teamers. Strange decision to bat in very much bowling conditions and we picked off the elite early which has made life much easier. One more...

    Which squad is better, the current one or the one from 2009/10?

    The thread "Do you now feel affinity with the team" made me look back at the squad that got us relegated in 2009/10, assuming that the OS of each club is accurate. They weren't getting paid by us, which would account for a lot, but have the individual players gone on to do well? Franck Moussa...

    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

    What squad is better 04/05 or 11/12 ?

    With our fantastic position at the quarter stage of the season it got me thinking of the last time we got promoted from league 2. We made an iffy start but it was about this time in the season we really got going. But my question is what squad would you think is the stronger one . 2004/2005...
