    East/North Bank Gate

    Slightly off topic I know but I just wondered what everyone's view is regarding the East/North Bank gate being open after each game? Those in the West probably aren't aware but after pretty much every game it's open and by the time you leave the East stand you have no option but to join and...
  2. Brian Horton linked with Port Vale

    According to this one of the people bidding for Port Vale wants Horton as his director of football if his bid is successful. http://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/port-vale-bidder-kevin-jones-wants-brian-horton-as-director-of-football/story-30316599-detail/story.html
  3. The budget and Gills Shrews and Vale

    Cold light of day . Its obvious the player budget was fairly decent this season,question is will Ron be happy with 7th considering Scunthorpe and Fleetwood finished higher with smaller crowds and I guess smaller budgets. My view is we started the season looking relegation fodder,yet some...

    Proud of our boys.

    Emotions are understandably running high at the moment. It's been a roller coaster of an afternoon and I wasn't even at the game. It looked all for the world that it was going to be settled early on but then the footballing gods who are quite often cruel made us sit through a crazy half hour...

    Question Is THIS allowed......

    I had a 'Dream', last night, that with FIVE minutes to go in our match against Bury, the score line read Southend United 0 Bury 0..... At first glance, this may appear to be more of a 'Nightmare' than a 'Dream', however, the other scores around the country, at the same time, were as follows...
  6. Ref Watch ........ Bury H

    Hopefully not the last Refwatch of the season: My memories of home matches against Bury are blighted by a series of turgid matches in the 70s when 5 matches against the Shakers yielded just three goals in total. Bury scored none of them and made very little attempt to do so. Anyway the man in...

    Southend's Chances of reaching the play-offs......

    Safe Bury or Fighting Bury?

    If Port Vale fail to beat Walsall tonight then Bury are safe. Which would you rather play? A team with nothing to play for who are in League One next season regardless of result or a team fighting to keep their place in Legaue One?
  9. Ref Watch ...... Shrewsbury A

    Man in charge of our rather important game on Saturday is Darren England from Broomhill near Wombwell (birthplace of Ernie Shepherd) near Barnsley. This is his second year as a League referee. Aged in his very early thirties, he is the National Project Coordinator for the Football League Trust...

    Favourite Home and Away Games of the Season

    So with 1 home and 1 away game still to go, it might be worth considering what we think has been the best performance of the season at home and the best performance away from home .......... and why. And I'm sure Gillingham isn't going to feature ............. or Port Vale. I'll nominate...
  11. Ref Watch ........ MK Dons H

    After one of the youngest referees on Friday, tomorrow's match will be presided over by one of the oldest League referees, The man in charge is experienced referee, Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear who the season before last completed his sequence of three successive Accrington v Southend matches...

  13. Ref Watch .... Charlton A

    Tomorrow's referee is a Select Group referee, but not one who is trusted with any "big" matches. He is Roger East of Salisbury. He used to be a familiar and distinctive figure to most of us but since his promotion we have seen little of him. In fact nothing since 2012/13 when he refereed our 3-0...
  14. Ref Watch .... Coventry A

    We haven't lost at Coventry in the League for over 56 years. Okay, we've only played them there five times in that period but those five matches include three draws and two impressive and high scoring wins - 5-2 and 4-3. After the excesses of the vastly experienced, but awful, Trevor Kettle at...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Port Vale

    What is there to say? Simply not good enough. As if losing to Gillingham who hadn't won in 11 games wasn't bad enough.....dropping points at home to the club with the worst away record in the division and one of the poorest teams I've seen to boot tops it all off. That was the definition of a...
  18. Ref Watch ....... Port Vale H

    After an uncharacteristically poor showing from Dean Whitestone last week, we will all be hoping for something better this week. The man in charge on Saturday is Nigel Miller, from Durham, the oldest referee on the League List. He is the referee who did us absolutely no favours at all when he...
