  1. Ron Manager

    Has an unused sub ever been sent off in a Southend game?

    Watching the Melbourne derby over here in Oz last night and Tim Cahill was sent off whilst still a sub and not on the pitch yet. I was thinking, surely that must have happened at some point in one of our games (either a Southend player or an opposition player) but can't think of a specific...
  2. Deegan...why oh why !

    Phil chased and waited for Deegs to sign his deal,2 years I think ? 134 minutes and unused sub for the past few games. Cannot for the life of me understand signing any player who will hardly figure in the first team,I think Deeg is a combative player more suited to the mad football played in...
  3. Breaking News Ted Smith

    Unused sub on Saturday against Czech Republic well do Ted
  4. Joe Pigott

    Was browsing the Charlton website and shows he was an unused sub in a friendly the other night when they near-enough played 2 whole teams as usual with subs. Don't know if this is a sign that their manager isn't keen on him and after he said he wanted to try to get into their team. We certainly...

    York v Fleetwood play offs

    This is a hard prediction. York don't do goals and Fleetwood are either good or poor on any given day. My money is on a 1 nil York win and a nil nil at Fleetwood with York going through. Cressie to be an unused sub in both games and then transfer listed.

    Question Unused Substitutes Who Never Made a 1st Team Appearance For Southend

    Was just sitting down in the middle of my night shift trying to recall some of the players who have been named as sub for Southend that have never gone on to make a first team appearance for the club. Zoltan Liptak, George Smith, Clark Masters and the bloke who came on a season loan from...

    Mark Bentley

    Is captain of Hayes + Yeading ... although he was an unused sub as they got thrashed 6-1 by Chelmsford City at the weekend. Allassandro N'Diaye was in the team though , what a nose dive his career has taken !

    Mohsni, Ferdinand and Hall

    So, of these three players that left us for the Championship, last night: Mohsni was an unused substitute for Ipswich. Hall didn't even make the bench for Leeds. (Is he injured?) Ferdinand came on in the 62nd minute for Peterborough.
  9. Ref Watch .... Magic of the Cup Refwatch

    Man in charge of our 1,500th game at Roots Hall is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his fourteenth Southend match in charge...
  10. Ref Watch ......... Exeter home

    Just when we can do without any suspensions, they send Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his thirteenth Southend match in...

    Time For Chelsea To Grow Up

    WHAT’S GONE WRONG AT CHELSEA? For six years, Chelsea have been a relentless winning machine, but that arrogant sense of superiority has faded away. In its place is hesitancy, vulnerability and a worrying inability to dictate the flow of games. Chelsea are dropping points so frequently that...
  13. An odd find

    I found an unused ticket from the LDV Vans Final against Wrexham . Now any memorbial buffs out there would like to make me an offer for it or maybe we can have it auctioned off at the end of Season bash ?? Do pm :D Ta

    Peterborough United vs Southend United
28/2/2009 After last weekends victory against Colchester United in the Essex derby, Southend will be looking for more success on the road against Peterborough. Manager Steve Tilson has said to be looking to sign an out of favour Championship striker on...

    Embarrassment on the train

    Sitting there on the train this morning minding my own business, train pulls into Benfleet where the usual gaggle get on to fight over the remaining seats. Woman who I would guess is about 35 boards but catches her foot as she comes in. Fortunately she doesn't fall down however much more...

    Rafa Benitez

    In an ideal world, Rafa Benitez would have flown back to England with the rest of us on Monday, tingling with excitement after watching one of the finest international tournaments in decades and clutching a notepad full of potential summer signings. In an ideal world, as manager of one of the...

    Chelsea fans will feel crushed today

    Thanks guys, really glad you liked it! Here's the follow-up: High up near the rafters of the Luzhniki Stadium, as the early morning rain washed away the tears of his expensively assembled superstars, the Super Tsar himself, Roman Abramovich, sat disconsolately wondering what might have been...

    Celtic v Rangers

    I'm told by my Scottish friends that when it comes to excitement, you'll have to go a long way to beat an Old Firm derby between Glasgow Rangers and Glasgow Celtic. I've always been a little dubious of that claim. After all, I've been to Tottenham against Arsenal. Could it really be anymore...

    Southend United players who have won FA Cup Winners medals

    Having a chat in the pub tonight with a couple of self minded SUFC fans and we got round to discussing players who had represented the club and also won FA Cup winners medals during their career. We came up with the following - Neville Southall Paul Brush (unused sub in 1980) Frank Lampard...

    Fabio Capello

    David Beckham’s long wait for a century of England caps should finally come to an end in Paris tonight, thus bringing to an end the tedious and never-ending speculation over his future. Beckham has been a fine ambassador for the nation and deserves this great honour, but England must move on and...
