    Southend United's Ryan Cresswell: We have not been affected by managerial uncertainty

    RYAN Cresswell insists Southend United’s players have not been affected by the uncertainty surrounding the managerial position for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final. More...
  2. Main Rival's Remaining Fixtures

    After yesterday's post of Southend's last few games, the topic of another team having to 'slip up' arose. Therefore, I thought it would make sense to predict the surrounding teams last few matches and see if we can overtake them. I predicted Southend would gain 16-19 points till the end of the...
  3. Feedback on an article

    Not sure where this should go - thought that seeing as it's Southend-related, I'd put it here. I'm looking towards a career in football journalism and wrote an article for the latest issue of All At Sea, which I'm sure some of you will have read. Obviously I'm always looking for ways to improve...

    Southend in song

    A colleague recently alerted me to the Half Man Half Biscuit song 'Rock And Roll Is Full Of Bad Wools', which features the lines: But then, disastrously They ask him casually “You come from Leigh-On-Sea, Do you ever get to Roots Hall?” Which to him means **** all (Full lyrics here)...

    HK Ferry Crash

    Woke this morning to hear this 36 dead so far. Yesterday was a national holiday culminating in a firework display that was breathtaking. 25 minutes and just when you thought it can't get any better they kept coming bigger and better. Some of these people were on their way to it. The ferries...
  7. If your driving to Plymouth Next week

    Hi all, pilgrim in peace here, with an offer some may appreciate. If you'r planning on coming down for the game on saturday and heading into town beforehand you could do worse than popping into my wifes cafe, if you are wearing your colours and make yourselves known as shrimpers down for the...

    Sturrock: Ryan Hall remain focused

    SOUTHEND United boss Paul Sturrock has ordered Ryan Hall to remain focused on his football and not the uncertainty surrounding his future. More...
  9. Official Match Thread Southend United vs Tottenham XI

    So, what with all the discussion surrounding embargoes and what not, it seems easy to forget we are playing a game tonight! Currently losing 1-0 to a Tottenham XI! Southend: Bentley, Clohessy, Straker, Leonard, Phillips, Prosser, Hall, Ferdinand, Harris, Eastwood, Spicer. Subs: Barker...
  10. Thoughts on the state of British society?

    Due to the response from earlier research, I've just started phase 2 of a university research project looking at whether Britain is regressing to a less civil state with less social constraint and more casual aggression. The questionnaire is live at http://www.topfan.co.uk and as you’ll see, the...

    Muamba chant

    Southend have had terrible tragic moments occur in the past (Boere and North) and what with the news surrounding Fabrice Muamba I can't help but think it'd be nice to show our support. What I propose is that on the 6th minute of the game (Fabrice's number at Bolton) a simple chant of "There's...
  12. Gareth Bale chanting

    I'm sorry but again I have to raise the issue of abusive chanting at players and the hypocrisy surrounding it. There was a lot quite rightly made in early January of the Oldham defender being racially abused by a Liverpool "fan" on the Kop, which reduced the defender to tears, and the abuser...

    Aldershot Town & Ron Martin's act of generosity

    So this morning I receive a letter from Ron Martin, which reads as follows; Dear Mr Fitzgerald, As many of you will know the income received from the sale of tickets relating to League games is always retained in full, by the Home Club. Whilst it is certainly not for me to judge the policy of...

    Pre-Match Thread Torquay v Southend

    A couple of days away but with all the negativity surrounding the stadium and winding up order, thought it might be a decent distraction to think about this weekend's game. Form: Torquay - WWWLLD - 10th - 42 points Southend - WLWWWD - 11th - 42 points A win (and a lot of favourable results)...

    Breaking News Possible travel chaos for tonight

The traffic is being diverted off at Progress road so police are stopping all Southend bound traffic for 2 changes of lights to clear the London bound backlog. All surrounding routes are carnage so...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...

    I am a salmon!

    Yes, I have been thinking today that maybe we have something in common. We have enjoyed the last four years leaving Div 2 to roam around Div 1 and the championship, abit like a salmon that hatches in the stream or river then leaves its small surrounding heading for the open sea and all that life...
