    Annual "Guess our 1st match" thread

    Ok, it's that time of year again folks, usual stuff - predict who we'll have in our 1st match of the 2018/19 league season. No doubling up until/unless every team has been taken, home and away. Just for fun, no prizes, - unless Cricko wants to chuck in a Wiggle it mug (if there are any left?)...

    Half Price footy

    I've just found out that if you take your Southend Utd season ticket along to watch Maldon & Tiptree FC you get half price admission. This is a good initiative to encourage local football fans watch other local matches , i wonder if any other clubs do this and why its not advertised. For...
  6. Memory Lane 120 years ago today .....

    David Jack was born. Probably nearly as famous for scoring the first FA Cup Final goal at Wembley (dribbling round Billie, the white horse and slotting home) as he was for managing us for 6 years! He'd lived in the town and went to school at Hamlet Court whilst his father was the first Southend...

    Southend Council

    Can someone please tell me why the Council decided to seemingly try and turn everyone away yesterday with this bike event? The high street is on its knees and the seafront traders rely on the money they make in the summer months and weekend to keep them going through the year. So why are the...

    Memory Lane Worst ever away match

    For me.. Hull City 4 SUFC 0 2007. Dean Windass sticking a hatrick past Daryl Flavs and i'm damn sure we never had one shot on target all game. Think i read something about Sodge in the hotel up to something the night before ? But the worst display i can remember. Going down from the...

    Memory Lane Worst ever match you saw at Roots Hall

    I was just looking at the other ‘best ever memory at RH’ thread, and it got me thinking about those goppingly bad, mind bogglingly spirit crushing home defeats that we’ve made such a glorious habit of at times down the years. I hope you’ve had your dinner and are wearing strong underwear before...
  12. Hi everyone

    New member here. Moved to Essex for a spell from 1989 through 1998-ish and started following Southend United as my "local team" shortly thereafter. Went pretty regularly through the promotion seasons, driving to away games in a C-Reg Rover 216 with Jamie from Grays and Stuart "the postman"...

  15. Southend United vs Fleetwood Town

    It has been a disappointing last few days with plenty of transfer talk and no action, club meetings with the Chairman trying to sort out problems and many posts wanting the manager out. For the next few hours we need to get behind the team, whether you agree with selection, tactics etc to...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Fleetwood Town

    So, another game on Saturday, Lenny gone, Nile sacked and no new signings? Hard to predict who will be in the starting line up? Depends who is in PBs good books this week I guess. I'm hoping to see Wabo get a start, alongside Cox. Wordsworth needs to be dropped IMHO, with Kightly taking a more...
