    Charlton views on Harry Lennon

    A lot on here don't like Lennon but he is a very capable third tier centre half with physical presence. Yes Chris Powell would have worked with him. Spent time on loan @ Gillingham a few years ago ... Was a rock there and they wanted to build a team round him, we had injuries in the...

    Breaking News Timlin and Fortune depart

    Now covered by Echo. Two superb pros. Gutted to lose Tims, few have given as much as he has and been a great servant for the club and I think he could still have offered us something. Shame on the club for letting him depart in this way after all he’s given over 8 years. Also means that...

    Contract talk

    It’s that time. There’s been a lot of talk about a clear out under CP and with rumours about Wright and Wordsworth it’s clear that he’s going to be ruthless. Here’s my take, though it’s a bit of a mix of what I predict CP might do and what I would do, though of course finances, etc., come into...

    The ball boy experience

    Never seen a thread about the day out with SUFC for the ball boys, so i thought i'd write one. I joined my boy's team Benfleet Villa under 14s with SUFC staff today. The boys were ushered into the ground, they have their own little changing room and are given a pre match chat and tracksuits to...
  5. Peps Boys On Toast ?

    Does anyone ( of a certain age ) remember that childish game when growing up of stating that if you had just beaten a team who then themselves went on to beat a ‘bigger’ side , it automatically became ‘fact’ that you would have beaten them too ! So given Wigan’s superb result last night and us...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 3-2 Scunthorpe United

    What a superb win! So much desire and passion that had been missing and players willing to have a go. Defensively there's still a lot of work to do, but given all that really changed in time for today was the attitude, it was a superb display and win. Too often we've conceded and heads have...

    Kent Elms Corner

    Wonderful news! They contractors for SBC have started work on the foundations for a new pedestrian bridge over the KE junction. The electronic traffic news boards are stating that the east bound A127 lane will be closed at some point so just when I was getting used to no hold-ups the misery...

    Here's Will in the pre season friendly against Sheff Wed. From reports Will had a stinker, Gary Hooper did well when he had the ball. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caANAxGJ6QI

    Moody Blues - Alan's visit today

    Ok, it was 0-0, and we've seen better games (tho there were certainly some plus points), but sometimes match day can be more than just about the 90 minutes of football. Alan traveled down from his native North East yesterday with his daughter Claire, and today made an emotional return to The...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Plymouth Argyle

    Got to be winning games like that. Very frustrating as first half was almost one way traffic only for our concentration to go after half time again. Poor defending and would have been a defeat if it weren't for Mark Oxley. Fortune was running on fumes yet PB took Cox off and that hugely limited...

    White to be offered new deal

    John white to be offered new deal. I'm delighted with this news. Superb professional captained us to promotion....
  12. Well done Boreham Wood !

    Brilliant stuff from the Wood. Mum dad and 2 kids under 12 can purchase an ST for £260...that equates to 11 quid per game,superb value . Today's hard pressed parents need as much help as possible. How much would the same ST cost for say Arsenal...couple of grand?...3k ?...,4K ?.,.how much at...
  13. John White

    In the last game and a half that he has played he has been superb despite coming onto the field with little or no warning and not having played for weeks. Well done John.
  14. Talent is not enough.

    Over the years of supporting the Blues I have seen such potential in certain players and am dismayed at how often it is lost or even thrown away. You can have the silky skills of a Gascoigne/Brooking or the 100% commitment and dedication of a Keegan or Batty. Often though, however you play, your...
  15. Old Shrimper

    Hi all, Thought I would join to hear news and opinions of other supporters. I like some of the historic comments and pictures of times past. I first starting watching the Blues in 1951 when the club played at Grainger Road stadium, travelling there on a saddle on my Dad's crossbar and then...
  16. Villa holiday !

    Just returned from Quesada in Spain,the villa we rented was utterly superb. Anyone interested go onto "owners direct" This place had the following 5 bedrooms 6 bathrooms Outside bar with booze on tap Snooker room Pool room Darts Hot tub Pool Table tennis TV room with surround sound Sleeps...
  17. Orient Transfer Policy

    It goes without saying that the Simpson deal is completely dead, there's virtually no point in even trying to sign him in January as he'll be eligible to sign a free transfer pre-contract agreement with someone else and will therefore have a ton of attractive options for 2017/18. What I find...

    PB interview with 4-5-1 magazine

    Ok, there isn't a 4-5-1 mag. But if it did exist, it may go something like this... 451 - So Phil, a decent season last year but not the best start so far, what's happened? PB - Well, like, we've lost a few good players mind, and I've tried to bring in some real quality, but it's a new side...
  19. The Future Looks Bright.

    No, not the new stadium, forget about all that nonsense. SUFC under-15s not only won the tournament and trophy in Berlin in Germany, but won all seven matches, and without conceding a single goal. They beat Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 in the final. Absolutely superb from the young lads...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 3-1 Sheffield United

    Superb performance and result! At half time things could easily have gone the way of Rochdale, the defending for their goal was shocking and we looked nervous at the back throughout, but that was still a quality performance. Bentley 7 Couple of shaky moments but did everything he had to do well...
