    Why oh why oh why

    Has it taken so long for the team to rediscover its form. That tonight was the team that was doing so well 12 games ago. Full of energy, endeavour, football played on the deck and players that wanted to win. Can't remember the last time we played so well and created so many chances, well I can...
  2. Stubborn Phil throwing it away!

    Another defeat yet for whatever reason Phil will not change it and it's now become ridiculous . 2 months ago we looked capable of securing an auto spot but that has long since gone and now we are in grave danger of being mid table as the pack hunt us down. Game after game slips by whilst Phil...
  3. Hopes for the new season

    Ok so there are still a few vacancies in our squad to be filled (most notably the goalkeeper) but the new season is drawing ever closer. After going so close last season and losing 3 key members of that side in Liam Dickinson, Anthony Grant and (probably) Bilel Mohsni what are our chances...

    Greece

    Greece Manager: Otto Rehhagel Captain: Giorgos Karagounis FIFA Ranking: 12 Group B Background: This is only Greece's second World Cup, although a European Championships win and two other appearances often mask that. Before the appointment of Otto Rehhagel in 2001, Greece had only qualified for...

    Stubborn Floaters

    Evening Chaps! I've had a few pints of Dublins finest and to put it bluntly, it loosened my bowels and caused me to have a gargantuan movement. As expected, it was a mixture of gravy and meatballs, but this time, things are eerily different. I flushed the carzie, washed my hands and settled...
  6. Who goes? YOU decide

    As I've posted in another thread, if either Tilson or Martin had to got TODAY, who would you prefer - considering all the implications that would go with their leaving would mean, I dont just mean they vanished off the face of the earth and everything would be rosey. TILSON: Legend at the club...

    Don't Panic, Arsene

    As dawn broke on the morning after the worst night of his career, I wonder what Arsene Wenger was doing. For some reason, I imagine him stood at the back door of his house, watching the sun rise slowly over his dew-drenched garden, sipping coffee and shaking his head pensively, wondering what...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ricky Otto

    Next up for election to the Hall of Fame is Ricky Otto. Ricky Otto had it all: skill, flair and funny looking hair. He was signed by B****y F*y for £100,000, a fee that seems suspiciously high for a Leyton Orient reserve. I won't make any libellous suggestions about brown envelopes...

    Frozen pitch not a problem....

    Am i the only one who cant really see why there is a problem with games being abandoned for frozen pitch. I cant see why southend united cant just buy say 25 patio heaters space them out evenly across the pitch and leave them on upto when the players warm up and there is no chance of a pitch...

    Some comments during the match from CFCnet

    12 mins in: "Grant has put in a few good tackles already." 14 mins: "Corner set piece nobody at the posts ....GOAL. When will that stubborn Brazilian f*** head learn ?" On half an hourish: ""you're getting sacked in the morning" funny stuff " After about 35 mins: "This is eleven League One...

  12. Dumping a mortgage

    All, just a bit of advice needed (and I think I know the answer). If you don't know, last year I split with my long term missus of ten years and the house we bought together went on the market. Had plenty viewings, but not a single offer. Fortunately we were quite amicable and we could sit in...

    Chelsea v Bolton

    In scorching heat against brutal opposition, Chelsea were comfortably keeping their side of the bargain and beating Bolton Wanderers, but with ten minutes remaining, the Stamford Bridge faithful suddenly fell silent and for a moment the only sound was the pinging of thousands of SMS messages...

    The Freddy Eastwood, Wolves Situation...

    Now i know we have a thread in the ex-shrimpers for Freddy, but i thought it would be easier to start a new one to shed some light on Fred's situation up there. Here is some info i have just got on a Wolves messageboard after posting a thread... This is my post; Hi. Southend fan here...

    Oh dear, Tilson has learnt nothing.....!

    Anyone here agree with the starting 11 today? Still as stubborn, i will play the useless Matt Harrold and i refuse to make a substitution before 8 mins from time. At least in the Championship you can admire the decent football played by the opposition, today they were both garbage. Orient were...

    Groundhog Day

    My favourite film... Sunday February 1, 2004 The Observer (Today) is Groundhog Day. Perhaps your diary does not remind you of this celebration; mine lists nothing between Epiphany and St Valentine's. Maybe because the 117-year-old Groundhog festival takes place in Punxsutawney, western...
  17. A girls first Time

    As you lie back your muscles tighten. You put him off for a while searching for an excuse, but he refuses to be swayed as he approaches you. He asks if you're afraid and you shake your head bravely. He has had more experience, but it's the first time his finger has found the right...
