    Another masterstroke by Captain and Manager alike!!

    I didnt go to Plymouth today after what happened at Roots Hall last Saturday, the first time I have ever let the result of a match dictate whether or not I travel to an away game, but by mid morning I was feeling both incredibly guilty about not going down there to support the boys and also...

    Under-18s vs. Colchester

    The boys from the OS were at the match this afternoon, but I thought I'd post a short report here as the Under-18s moved to the top of the Youth Alliance South-East Conference with a narrow 1-0 win over Colchester United. The Shrimpers' only goal of the game was scored by 17-year-old attacker...

    Are we a Better 'TEAM' without Eastwood

    Just mulling this through my mind the other day after the Preston game and just reading Glasgow's match report he sort of touched on it. The question is are we a better 'team' without Eastwood in it? Before anyone start i do accept that he is our best chance of goals, yes he is gifted and...

    The fbm view and ratings - Birmingham

    BATTLING BLUES PUT BRUM OUT TO SEED Southend pulled off one of the results of the season by deservedly claiming all three points on the sponge that is now the St Andrews pitch. On an all too rare fbm awayday, the result rounded off a decent visit to England's second city. Travelling up in the...
  7. Maher & Duguid

    I note from our Official site that Steve Tilson has now disclosed we had a statement from "their playing" (obvious typo) confirming Kev Maher never even touched Duguid! I'm now even more angry about this. Assuming the above quote should read "their player" then why was Duguid not charged for...

    From todays Echo

    In a piece in today's Echo concerning the red card Sodje received at Norwich and the decision by Tilly & Co not to appeal to the FA was this little tit bit of information. Tilly: "We saw that when we contested Kevin Mahers red card at Col******r. We even had a statement from their...
  9. Christmas Greetings From Ron

    I know I moan about the shambolic way things are run off the field but I must admit that even I was touched by the Christmas card received from the club. I think its the little things in life, I'll go into work with the Man U fans and ask if their chairman has sent them a card this...

    We are proud to inform you about an upcoming new feature. The season after next season (at the end of March) there will be a brand new and more challenging youth system in place. HT-Tjecken gives you the big picture in this editorial. One of few things remained untouched since Hattrick started...

    Barrington Belgrave

    I went along to Thurrock Vs Bedford Town yesterday in a crowd of 160 or so. Who else was on the Bedford bench but Barrington "couldn't care less" Belgrave. Turns out he started the last game, a 5-0 drubbing by Welling, but was dropped. He came on for the last 20 or so minutes...

    Single Greatest Moment

    Watching Southend for me is a real rollercoaster. Sometimes uncontrollable highs and another time undescribable lows. But what is the single best feeling you have ever had when supporting Southend? For me it was the Juppy's goal. All the way to Cardiff (again) I just had visions of us...

    Reserves Match Report - SUFC 3 LTFC 1

    Was it the unseasonally warm weather or was it the fact that I'd only recently found out that STHs get into reserves games for nothing ? It matters not. The important thing is that after 33 years of patiently and quietly watching the best team in the world I finally broke my duck to watch my...
  14. Man Utd Fans

    Ever since watching them coast past Charlton midweek, Something has been bothering me. Throughout the game, Ronaldo got abuse everytime he touched the ball, and Rightly so IMO.... If not for the blatant act of conspiring to get Rooney sent off in the World Cup then for his history of cheating...

    Paul Holland R.I.P.

    Whoever was resonsible for the new Cross of St George hanging from the middle of the south upper, please stand up and take a bow - I think I can safely say that Paul would have been very touched by the sentiment, and would have wanted this sort of rememberance. For those not present today, the...

    NICE SCORE, SHAME ABOUT THE GAME Southend returned to the top of league one tonight after a professional but spluttering display against a team surely destined for league 2 if not extinction. The three points were, to be honest, courtesy of a first half mugging and Rotherhams total ineptitude...

    JEKYLL AND HYDE AT BARNET FAIR Victorian accounts of Barnet Fair deem it to be a "disgrace to civilisation". 90% of attendees came to trade “Horses, Donkeys or Mules” but there were other sideshows, not least the man who ate live rats “as though they were apples”. In such times freakshows at...

    Thurrock Vs Bishop&#39;s Stortford

    I haven&#39;t got time unfortunately to do my usual round up, but I thought I&#39;d post on here about the game I was at yesterday. Instead of having to nervously keep track of what we were doing via Sky etc, I thought I&#39;d go along to a match, and being a 10 minute drive from Dagenham...
  20. The match last night

    A few observations from last night. 1.  Their ground -  very pleasant with no home support whatsoever.  I know it was an LDV game, but it's no wonder they're struggling in the lead with that support.  A bit gutted - I had a cheeseburger, Dreams paid 60p more and got a diamond burger, complete...
