  1. Real Outclassed in El Clasico to Forget

    Lionel Messi and Pedro Rodriguez sealed a dominant win for Barcelona in El Clasico, seemingly deciding the La Liga title race as Real were left out thought, out fought and out classed. This will, by no means, go down in history as an El Clasico to remember. Barcelona entered the contest coming...

    An Open Letter to RM?

    Seen the posts on here, about protests etc.. although i agree with it - i don't know what it would acheive other than to make Martin know again, what our feelings are. How about an open letter - to him, directly - from the fans of SUFC? Publish it in the echo... send to BBC Essex etc etc...

  5. Pac Man Pummels Clottey, Provokes Mayweather

    Manny Pacquiao sent out a warning shot to Floyd Mayweather Junior by drubbing Joshua Clottey, taking the African apart in twelve long, gruelling rounds. The only reason this fight was scheduled was because of the row over drug testing between Pacquiao and Mayweather, with Mayweather facing...

    Can we just think about this please?

    Look, this is not a pro Ron, blue tinted (or should I say blue rinsed with that hair!) statement and I, like many others have been feeling increasingly disillusioned at the off field events of this season. But one thing is blatantly obvious - we have no idea of actually what is going on behind...

    Are we a victim of the quality of football?

    I'm struggling to see how we are a worse team than won this league. Are we a victim of the change in the quality of football? Can anybody really say that Jupp was better than Francis? Spinner was better than Mvoto? Wilson better than Malone? How about midfield - granted, Gower wasn't too shabby...

  10. Shut Up Wenger...

    When Ryan Shawcross trudged off the field in tears, the last thing the lad needed was to be hounded by a sense of indignation from Arsene Wenger and a loud collage of journalists and Arsenal fans alike. So, imagine the disgust when the pitch forks and stakes came out... The challenge itself...

    FC - Match 4

    ShrimperZone CC v Cricket is for girls 1st v 2nd and a very tough one to call, we have the stronger overall team but they are a lot fitter after exiting the cup earlier. Have rested Benji as he's on lively meaning Graham gets a very rare FC outing. 3 days of cloud in Essex, the quicker the...

    An exiles view

    First, I understand completely that those of you who watched it suffered the most. You paid good money and by the sound of things had a great deal of hassle to be there. You also had to take the taunts and chants of the farmer scum as we were losing. However I feel I suffered with you. Rising...

    Just Another Afternoon At The Match

    Today was a rare opportunity for me. With local non-league football and my lad's training wiped out by waterlogged conditions, resulting in the radio show I would have been doing to cover it all also biting the dust, popping along to the Hall became an unexpectedly pleasant compensation...

    Final 10 home games are vital

    Walsall Swindon Tranmere Charlton Exeter Carlisle Yeovil Brentford Brighton Stockport I would say they look like easy games, but for Southend right now, every match is far from easy. There are also alot of games against teams below us and around the relegation zone, which if we lose, I fear...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Tranmere Rovers 2-0 Southend United

    No-one bothered? Thought I'd start it as I'm likely first one up this morning - after just an hour and a half's sleep and getting in at 2.40! Huge disappointment, the team that played Friday was just completely absent for the first half, and some of them for the second too. It was like...
