    Former England player Ray Wilkins critically ill after cardiac arrest

    Awful news posted on Sky & BBC websites an hour or so ago that Ray Wilkins is in an induced coma after cardiac arrest & a subsequent fall. Best wishes to him & his family that he makes a full recovery. https://news.sky.com/story/former...

    Walden

    Further to my Memory Lane post on Sheffield United cup games I've had an enquiry about one of players Walden (don't know his first name yet) which is amazing, it means someone has read my post :smile: Anyway I'm doing some research into the player and thought I would post it up for all to...
  5. Ref Watch ........ Barnsley H

    Although we have got the better of games against Barnsley over the years, we haven't beaten them at home in 6 attempts over the last twenty years. In fact last time we got maximum points off them at Roots Hall, Phil Gridelet scored! Tomorrow's referee is Charles Breakspear from...
  6. Breaking News Can you help the club identify the people in this photograph?

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/southend-united-news-2453374.aspx So the club have identified the area photographed the most likely location from where the smoke bomb (vs Luton) was let off - if you know anyone in the picture or are indeed one of the individuals then you need to...
  7. Ref Watch ........ Burton H

    Tomorrow night's referee, Charles Breakspear from Walton-on-Thames, has refereed two Southend matches before and in both of them he sent off an opposing player. Sadly we only got a defeat and a draw (and subsequent penalty shoot-out defeat) to show for our numerical advantage. So, third time...

    TFI Monday

    I bet the Mods all breathe a sigh of relief after a weekend! There always seems to be a plethora of arguments, provocative posts, insults and subsequent banning orders, which seem to be all the time now whether we win or lose (more when we lose, obviously). It does all get a bit tiresome...

    Question Mohsni Bilel

    Just a quick one really. Now I remember, in the not to distant past that there was a discussion regarding the famous Bilel. This discussion surrounded around his involvement in the team after his well documented leave of absence from the team, and then his subsequent sending off against...

    The Shrimpers Trust and its role with the current financial issues

    Ive posted this in general to get some attention, we will move it to the Trust forum shortly... Following a comment I made and a subsequent reply from OBL thought Id start a specific discussion, especially after a great game on Saturday will hopefully mean this is in a slightly more positive...

    Embargo - The FA

    Hi all Seeing as I constantly come across people on this forum mentioning Embargo, what they mean and whether Southend United are currently under on, I have found the following from the FA Regulations. I hope you find this useful. 526 STANDARDISED RULES APPENDIX G Embargo means a ban on a...

    I wonder how long it will be...

    ...before people will get to the same place that I am in, which is a complete indifference about anything football related apart from the results of SUFC? Cricko's post yesterday about falling out of love with football is totally understandable, as was True Blue's response about not being so...
  14. Lyle Della Verde

    Kid is doing well. To date it has been another positive season for the Academy’s Under-18s, Kit Symons’ side catching the eye with their attacking philosophy and exciting brand of football. With no shortage of creative quality, Lyle Della Verde is one who has certainly attracted attention...

    Memory Lane BLUES Thrash OLDHAM/New Ground on hold

    Well it’s not exactly “Breaking News” as this news broke sixty years ago when in Season 1951-52 Southend beat Oldham 5-0 in the second round of the Cup while an announcement was made about the new stadium (Roots Hall) being delayed. This how it was in early December 1951...
  16. (18+) The c-bomb in films/TV shows?

    So settling down to another HBO series (Game of Thrones) and it's clearly obvious that more and more US films and TV shows are dropping the c-bomb. We watched Bridesmaids (a 15) and it was dropped, and I commented that it seems to me to be more used and maybe more acceptable in the US, which is...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame 7th Round Nominations

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame (courtesy of Yorkshire Blue) For a bit of fun and to honour our club's history, I propose starting a SZ Hall of Fame to recognise the true legends of Southend United. The words legend and great are bandied about a bit too often for my liking, I'd like our Hall...
  18. All At Sea season 2010/11

    Good evening After much deliberation, All At Sea will be continuing during the coming season. However, having lost a co-editor I am going to need the help of fellow Southend fans more than ever. I've had a couple of offers of help which are gratefully received, but anyone who fancies writing us...

    Guardian/Brentford/Chomp

    from the Guardian's knowledge section today - I never heard of this - anyone? Bueller? "Less widely broadcast was the banning of confectionery at a number of lower-league grounds in the 1990s when Brentford were the visiting team," adds Mike Deller. "Indeed, at one match (a promotion deciding...

    Welcome to the Idiot's Guide to Shrimperzone and SUFC. There is a clear need for this guide, as we have so many "newbies" (see guide) joining, and many of our regular members seem to have become confused as to the purpose of Shrimperzone.
