  1. Chris Powell on "The Coaches' Voice" and the victory over Wigan

    Came across this site and a video ( called a Masterclass) in which Chris describes plotting the defeat of Wigan in what was his third game. Interesting stuff and Chris talks with clarity about tactics both with and without the ball.

    Tosspot Supporters of Southend United

    So as mentioned, we had to leave 30 minutes or so into the game and it had nothing to do with the shower on the pitch. My son has autism and is sensitive to noise. It's a strange thing because it only kicks in if he isn't enjoying himself. So to put that into context, against Chesterfield last...

    Who has the best ever voice?

    Was thinking earlier when a Karen Carpenter song came on the radio. That was one lady who I think had a truly wonderful and unique voice. Yes, in many ways when you hear her sing it can make you feel sad even if she is singing a happy song given what happened to her at such a tragically young...

    Your Help Required Please On Sunday To Create A Real Retro Moment

    I have mentioned before that our 1980-82 striking duo Derek Spence and Keith Mercer are coming along to Roots Hall on Sunday. They should be introduced to the crowd about 10 mins or so before kick-off, and yep I've asked if they can walk right out to the centre circle to wave hello to all...

    Memory Lane Billy Best

    I had a phone call earlier this week from Billy Best and for all those misty eyed fans of a certain age Billy will be back at Roots Hall this weekend for our match against Northampton Town, just under 50 years since he joined us from the Cobblers back in January 1968. Billy...

    RIP Tony Cozier

    The voice of Caribbean cricket. One of those voices that has always been there as long as I've followed the great game. He will be missed.

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    SZ raise your voices. Ask for an answer - AT LAST!!!!!!

    May I say that I am certainly more pro Ron Martin - than a "Martin Out" man. However. Can we at SZ pass some kind of resolution stating that we as Southend United fans believe the ongoing talk, planning, arguing, pontificating etc, et, etc, over FF has to stop!!! I honestly believe it is time...

    Utter disgrace

    Many of you on here have expressed your displeasure of some of our fans, particularly at the abuse that they level towards our players. I regret to say that one of our "fans" was a true and utter disgrace this evening on a train back from Fenchurch Street. He sat in a seat one row away from...

    Hi all, With the summer break dragging, and not much on here aside from 47 pages of chat about kits, thought I'd take the chance to post a link to a song my dad has written. He's been a Shrimper for decades and is getting back into his music as he gets closer to retirement - got to have...

    Southend featured in Football Weekends

    Just stumbled across this magazine in Rayleigh. And picked it up as I was interested in the cover story about Scandinavian football, then something caught my eye in the top right corner... There's even a good mention of The Blue Voice in there, I guess it must have been the Luton game as the...

    A short story

    I know all my historical stuff isn't everyone's cup of tea so I've tried something different, a FICTIONAL story on the background of historical fact. Any similarity between the characters in the story and Shrimperzoners is entirely intentional, only the names have been changed to protect the...
