  1. Ref Watch ...... Shrewsbury A

    We've generally had the better of matches against Shrewsbury over the years - a good time to consolidate that situation! The referee will be Carl Boyeson from Hull, an experienced official in his 13th season who will be officiating his 10th Southend match. The 45 year old, central heating...
  2. General World Cup thread

    I thought it was a good opener last night. Croatia looked a very strong team (Perisic is some player) and Brazil were lucky with a homer ref and some good finishing from Neymar and Oscar. They might struggle against teams who are strong in attack. Cesar and Luiz didn't play well and their full...
  3. Found this Website and unusually it covers us as one of its featured teams

    Not sure if this is the right forum but stumbled on this website LINK DELETEDand it has us as one of its featured teams - looks pretty good to me for Birthdays etc and unusual to have us as an option. What do you think?
  4. Ref Watch ..... Aldershot

    On Saturday Rob Lewis, from Shrewsbury, makes his second visit to Roots Hall as a referee. This is the first season of his second spell as a League referee, having lost his place in 2008 primarily due to injury. His only previous visit to the Hall was for the 2-0 home victory over Luton...
  5. Ref Watch ..... Hereford

    Well, there can't be a team in the land we have a better recent record against than Hereford. Eight straight League wins, with 6 out of the last 7 (including three away matches) without conceding a goal. The original appointee, Graham Horwood, has for the fourth time in five Southend...

    World Cup Diaries - your 'almost live' blogs

    'This is it!' - proclaimed Melba Moore on a joyous little single of yesteryear. I'm feeling upbeat that the World Cup opening day has finally arrived. Just got a bit of work to do this morning before I'm off for three glorious weeks of World Cup fever. I'd like to start a ShrimperZone World Cup...

    Top 10 legendary names at work

    People of SZ, Having just sent an email to a rather unusually named person at work, i trawled through our company email list to find our top 10 best named people. They are as follows: Aileen Archdeacon - obviously her second job Charmaine Dullard - oh dear Clodagh Memery - sounds like...

    I know about you...

    Yesterday I went through my old posts to see which ones got the highest rep. Based on that information I have compiled a psychological profile of you. You are unusually curious about how things work. You value function over form. You like solving problems, even if they are not your own...

    Work dilemma

    Not been paid yet this month (second month out of three that it's been late). No warning given that it was going to happen; no apology that it has and no explanation as to why. Spoken to Nationwide and they say that there's no payment pending, so it isn't even being processed. As far as I'm...

    The fbm report - Donny play off 1st leg

    STILL ALL TO PLAY FOR IN SEASIDE STALEMATE Southend will have an uphill task if they are to make Wembley in the play offs this year as an impressive Doncaster outfit held the divisions form team to a goalless draw at Roots Hall this evening. The stadium had a fantatsic atmosphere this...

    Wiggy's ratings!

    Flavs 6 nothing to do, kicking unusually a bit wayward, one high ball claim, static for corners Hammel 6 assist for goal and generally ok Barrett 7 lost a few heading duals but strong in the tackle Clarke 7 same as Barrett and much better than last week Hunt 7 continued his rich vein of form...

    Wiggy's rating's!

    Collis 5 think the defence have got even less confidence in him than i have! Hunt 4 move over Mr. Lethergic, ridiculous having him in front of Francis any more, got completely lost a few times Clarke 9 Absolute rock, wins everything in the air and gets stuck in Barrett 7 much better than last...
  13. wiggy

    Wiggy's rating's!

    Collis 6 excellent first half save, have come to the conclusion that we have 2 excellent shot stoppers at the club but Collis is very poor in most other areas. Don't want to drone on but he will never be better than Flavs low down and is inferior kicking, organisation and aerially believe it or...
  14. Swansea - the Shrimper truth

    Are Southend the most easterly club and Swansea the most westerly ? Anyway Tilson is talking up the fixture it looks like it might be worth the hassle - and personally I leave home thinking we can nick the points - no problem. Major worry was Macca as he was obviously feeling an injury...
  15. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    A New Dawn

    I wake early. The early morning mist of a Summer’s day is readily burnt by the glowing yellow sun rising over south Suffolk’s gently rolling fields. Next doors much despised cockerel, 300 yards away and out of rifle range, announces the event with gusto. I amble downstairs and let out Shrimper...
  16. No im not really a Liberal per say

    From tonights Echo

    Freddy and Gower are unlikely to be fit for Saturday. Neither have trained this week at all and out of the two Gower is more likely to make it. Freddys back is still in spasm and is affecting his mobility. Tilly is also unusually critical of the fans, by saying "People just don't know what...

    The fbm view and ratings - Barnsley

    HANDICAP FOOTBALL LETS BLUES DOWN AGAIN Southend slipped to their 10th home defeat of the season as another nervous display at the Hall handed a huge boost to their visiting relegation rivals. In the early stages there was little to separate the two teams. Barnsley were missing several first...
