    Half Time Challenge (when a car was won)

    For purposes of a missive I am putting together on Roots Hall memories, can anyone tell me please what game it was (and when) that someone first won a car with the half time challenge (where i think the task was to put three balls over a barrier in the goal and in to the net from various...
  2. Hiya....

    I've been following Southend since 1978, and the first game I paid to get into (and didn't climb over the wall into the North bank toilets) was for the opening league game of the 78/9 season vs Chester. I've followed and dipped into the shrimper zone site , and can personally identify with the...

    Why Sturrock needs to be our manager next season: preparation time

    Tuesday matches our record is W 6 D 2 L 10 Saturday matches our record is W 13 D 11 L 5 Wednesdays we've won one and drawn one, Fridays (which I might have lumped in with Saturdays) we've won one from one. The significance of these stats is that the longer Sturrock has to prepare the team...

    FA Cup successes

    I'm trying to remember the last time we beat a team from a higher division in the FA Cup. Can anyone remember?

    Mike Lapper interview

    Legend Mike Lapper, current assistant coach for the Columbus Crew, former defender for the U.S. National Team and various clubs, most notably the Crew, was kind enough to give me an exclusive interview for Pro Soccer Weekly. Mike is a really nice guy and gives some very frank answers to the...

    Despair

    It is a shame to now log onto this website and see at least 5 new threads a day that are shaped towards the same issues. Tilson out, Martin out, Finances. The once positive Shrimpers Chit-Chat is a mere needle in a haystack to what it once was. Talk of relegation coincides with a team going...
  7. You've got to hand it to him

    I've never met the man, so haven't seen his skills first hand, but you've got to hand it to him. Ron Martin must have incredibly slick PR skills. He seems to be like teflon. Whenever there is something bad to face, either someone else is put forward to take the flak or he somehow wins people...

    Memory Lane Episode No 3 Season 1931-32

    Forget all the current gloom and doom for a minute or two and go back in time for a couple of minutes with Episode 3 that appeared in the Southend v Leyton Orient programme: No. 3 A GOOD START NOW TWO HOME GAMES Southend had started the season with three straight wins, all by two goal margins...

    Goodbye Bobby Millions

    Several years ago, upon the release of his autobiography, Sir Bobby Robson held a signing session in his home town of Newcastle. Thousands of Geordies turned up, all clutching their books and waiting patiently for an audience with the great man. One of them, so the possibly apocryphal story...
  10. Interpol Shrimper

    A bit of perspective

    You've got to say the natives are getting restless are as Southend fans are concerned over the past few weeks and I'm sure a lot of this is due to the relative recent successes that T&B (& RM as well in certain areas don't forget) have brought to our club. However, just been reading the...
  11. Will Clarke be with us next season?

    Apparently Clarke is refusing to discuss a new contract and I reckon he will be on his way to another club. Assuming that Dervite and Robinson will not be with us either it sadly means all the good work in the latter part of this season has been to no unvail. Instead of building a team on the...

    Supporting a club like Southend United

    As I sat high up in the Shed End at Stamford Bridge enjoying our moment in the sun on the greyest of winter days, soaking up the Blue Voice inspired atmosphere, taking in the flag-waving travelling Shrimper army bedecked in yellow and coping with the perforation of my ear-drums from an incessant...
  13. Luis Garcia

    The following is a letter that Garcia wrote to Liverpool FC to put on thier site. A very nice gesture IMHO. Dear Reds, First of all I'd like to apologise for not having been back in touch sooner, but I needed to take some time to take on board all the recent changes and then to put down...

    Five teams you love to love...

    ...other than Southend United, of course. As the counterpoint to Uxbridge's thread, let's get that lovin' feelin' going on. My five clubs are: 1. Flamengo. My first love in football, growing up in Rio. How can you fail to love a side that has Zico up front and Junior supplying all the guile...

    Lets try to look forward - even if we do go down :)

    Well, I was expecting more today. It had been a great day - met Matt the Shrimp at 8:30am in Lewisham for a fry up breakfast at Maggie's in Lewisham (can heartily recommend it, if anyone is in the area). We pored over the Grand National runners and riders - my early tip of Kelami (based on a...

    We only beat teams in red and white stripes

    On the basis that our only two previous league successes have been against Sunderland and Stoke, I'm feeling mildly optimistic about tomorrow. Sods law the b*****ds will turn out in their away kit!
  17. South Bank Hank

    Why we need to be EXTREMELY WORRIED…

    … YET STRANGELY OPTIMISTIC!! Sometimes when a team is promoted, the momentum from previous seasons can be enough to carry you still forward – see Wigan last season in the Premiership and just look at what we achieved last year ourselves. But then sometimes the step up in class is just too...
  18. swansea fans

    Athough everybody is in ful swing of celebrations, i would just like to thank the swansea fans for there respect at the end of the game and when the coaches left. The southend fans left swansea with the sound of applaus from the swansea fans who hav taken note of our performances this season and...
