  1. Ref Watch ...... Fleetwood H

    Man in charge for Fleetwood's first visit to Roots Hall will be Mark Heywood from Northwich (not to be confused with the more experienced Mark Haywood from Wakefield). He is in his second season as a League referee and has refereed Southend three times before. Firstly the home 2-1 win over...

    Paul Sturrock

    SOUTHEND United manager Paul Sturrock insisted he decided to change goalkeepers for Saturday's draw against Torquay in a further bid to freshen up his side. More...

    I-player Southend v Torquay

    1:06:08 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01rhxzv/The_Football_League_Show_2012_2013_16_03_2013/ Great strike by Freddy, defence is in disarray in each of the instances shown here though Bentley does well with the saves. Stonewall penalty too as we thought at the time.
  5. Official Match Thread Southend United vs Torquay United

    A lot of changes today and no Cresswell or Corr in the matchday squad. Also Bentley, Laird, Mkindawire, Eastwood and Reeves come in to the starting eleven. Blues XI: Bentley; Clohessy, Mkandawire, Mohsni, Straker; Hurst, Laird, Lund, Reeves; Eastwood, Britt. Subs: Smith, Spillane; Leonard...

    All is not lost

    Even though we lost against Wimbledon which was a huge disappointment. If we win our next two games against Torquay and Plymouth then we could be 1 point behind Cheltenham (If they lose against Rotherham) and potentially equal with Exeter if they lose against Bradford. All is not lost people...
  8. Ref Watch ...... Torquay

    As we look to maintain our decent recent form against Torquay (3 wins, 2 draws from last 5) we have a reeferee who is about as consistent as our players lately. His last Roots Hall game was very good, the previous one woeful. Man in charge of this must-win game is Dave Phillips from Chichester...
  9. Southend fans!

    I ve read earlier about how good the Southend fans are, how well they support the clubetc etc etc. But then i read the threads on here, and some of the threads tell me the opposite,are some of you really fans or is this just an excuse to vent your frustrations in your personal life.Do i think...
  10. Torquay on Saturday

    From what I gather from Twitter, Prosser is now suspended for two games and Reeves will be back for the remainder of the season as of Saturday. I think a change from tonight is definitely needed so what sort of team do we think we might field on Saturday? Hopefully not a negative 4-5-1.
  11. Benyon

    Staying at Torquay till the end of the season according to this - http://www.thisissouthdevon.co.uk/story-18383024-detail/story.html#axzz2NFgEDsjs :smile:

    The run-in

    I was struck by a Staffordshire news report that said Port Vale still had to play Cheltenham, Burton and Northampton in their last 9 games and I thought it might be worth checking out the respective run-ins of the promotion/play-off rivals who are currently above us. I don't think we'll catch...
  13. Prices Reduced? 3 important games coming up

    Would have been brilliant if the club could have put a promo in for the Torquay game at least for reduced ticket prices? Similar to what we done last season against Morecambe? The importance of these three games is evident, would have been nice to really pack out the hall:sad:
  14. BaileytheQuitter

    Don, Torquay, Plymouth- realistically

    A lot of chatter about how we need 3 wins out of 3 over the next 3 fixtures but realistically, with this being Southend, I just can't see it happening. What is the general consensus on how many points we are going to pick up?

    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

  19. Ref Watch ....... Chesterfield away

    Getting up early tomorrow for the 8am pitch inspection will be Mark Heywood from Northwich (not to be confused with the more experienced Mark Haywood from Wakefield). He is in his second season as a League referee and has refereed Southend twice before, both last season. Firstly the home 2-1...
  20. Ref Watch ....... Paint pot Oxford

    Tonight's referee is one who is being fast-tracked more than any other referee since Attwell (and that worked out well!!). He is David Coote from Winthorpe near Newark. He is a third year referee and he has been getting appointments far better than his experience (and, probably, ability)...
