    Will Atkinson

    Happy to accept I've been completely wrong about Atkinson in the past. He's in the form of his life at the moment and really is the unsung hero of this side. I made a point of watching him closer than normal today and his work rate is different class. He was constantly running at people, closing...

    New Years Honours list

    I think it was Ricey who said somewhere that gongs are given away like sweeties these days. Now I've had a quick run through this year's list there are some 'famous' names that do come into the 'Really?' category for me. I'm not going to name my 'really?' candidates as it's still the season of...
  3. Phil Brown on the bridge

    Article in today's paper about Phil Brown (Sunday Times pg 5 Sport section). It mentions that when Phil Brown was manager of Hull City he was out with the players going across the Humber Bridge when Phil spotted a woman about to jump to comit suicide. Apparently he talked her down, but he wont...

  8. I done a blog

    Been working on this for the last couple of days and anyone who's read Soccernomics (Or Why England Lose...); Moneyball or Freakonomics will know where I'm coming from. There are no great surprises in there, but I do think it makes interesing reading. Eventually I want to look at the impact of...

    Question Why is there no praise for Grant!!

    Grant is one of those players who seems to have good and bad days on the pitch. But last night was the best I have ever see him play. He played out of his skin and lets me honest he neded to with Macca having a shocker of a game. Credit where it was due Moussa was great last night, infact the...

    Andy Ansah

    Picked this up off the net.....quite a good read for those who remember the legends of the early 90's... Andy Ansah’s wing wizardry for Southend United between 1990 and 1996 helped propel the club into the upper echelons of English football, as the Shrimpers bagged back-to-back promotions from...
  11. Unsung heroes

    Just to kind of tap into the British Heroes competition, and after reading this article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/man_utd/8059180.stm Fergie "To my mind John is one of the unsung heroes" I have to agree, you watch him play for United and he is consistent, dependable...
  12. Paul Brush his Influence

    Thought I might start a thread on someone who seems to be the unsung hero in the success of Southend United over the years, one Mr Paul Brush. Tilly gets all the praise and fair play to him but I think the influence and experience of Paul Brush has had a big effect on the success we have have...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Frank Gill

    One of the reasons I was keen to get the Hall of Fame going, was to learn more about our club's heritage. I thought I had a fairly decent grasp on our club's history but this is one nomination that has caught me completely by surprise. I'm therefore welcoming the opportunity to find out more...

    Your Unsung Heroes

    We all have people we admire, whether people in the present day or in history. However, not all our heroes are the obvious ones. So, do you have any 'unsung heroes' you would wish to nominate. My two against the field are: 1. Lieutenant William Bligh - cruelly depicted as a cruel and callous...

  17. Active index

    According to the active index the best right back in the championship in January was Lewis Hunt and the best centre back Adam Barrett, who has won every tackle! Definately a reason for our improved performance and possibly this seasons two unsung heroes? Well done boys anyway!!! UTB
  18. Today

    Obviously all good things happened.. But a little mention for the unsung hereos, the mods of SZ. Today, is when this new site was "Broken In".. Today is the kind of day, when SZ comes into its' own. (So to speak) Very good test of the new board, and very good work done by the mods in setting...
  19. Shrimpers review

    Hi, I've just launched a new 'fantasy football' style game based on the Coca-Cola Championship and I need a bit of help in writing a brief review for Southend. What I need to know is: + Your realistic aims for the rest of the season (solely survival, bottom half?) + Who your key...

    Grim down south - a frozen match report

    Not bad, just not great So so cold, snow at some points. The goals like the snow came in a flurry, Guttridge's header and Gowers class finish coming minutes apart. Sodje is a class player, showing almost arrogance in some of his defending, his positioning is excellent as is his heading...
