    SUFC v SOSEMTCC - 26th July

    Southend United will again be playing one night of T20 cricket against Southend Cricket Club at Southchurch Park. Bar, hopefully a BBQ, raffle - take your chairs or blankets and a picnic if you wish, and enjoy a nice relaxed evening watching the cricket. I am hearing there may well be the...

    Goal of the Season

    With the end of season awards coming up, we need to think about our best goal, and I always have difficulty remembering the best ones. I had a bit of a trawl through, and there's Simon Cox's 2nd goal at home to AFC Wimbledon, Woody and Fortuné both scored a lovely one away at Peterborough, and...
  3. David Mooney

    As Mooney nears fitness after a long injury , just a few pro-comments before the expected "not good enough" brigade kick in. Yes , with the strikers we have all looking sharp and all bringing something a bit different , it will be very difficult for Mooney to find a way back and I expect that...
  4. Boring stat of the day..

    Teams are going to hate playing us after winning their last 5 in a row! Just realised we have recently ended such winning streaks for Fleetwood (1-1 away) Rochdale (2-1 at home) and Oxford (0-2 away). All had won their previous 5. I wish I could say I was bored at work but I've actually got far...

    Popularity Contest

    This board has been running for years, as we know by the sheer fact that Napster continues to dig posts out from almost before Fossetts Farm ever first got mentioned. In that time some users have clocked up a wealth of posts. In my opinion, they have all added plenty of value over the years for...

    Sale of Kodi 'fully-loaded' streaming boxes faces legal test

    I came across this on the BBC news webpage. Any of you Kodi users out there may wish to be aware if you are not already. It appears that the legal interest is in the various add-ons inside the boxes. Not that any of us have watched anything illegally on our desktop versions obviously...

    Juncker proposes EU military headquarters

    I've never made any secret of my wish for the UK to remain in the EU, but reading this does make me think we might be better off out of it. What's the point of NATO if something like this happens. A move towards a united European State may be a step nearer...

    Zone Update It's that time again folks..sorry and all that

    It's always best to ask people for help when the club is playing syhte...said nobody ever, until now. I was late last year so apologies for that... I am getting in early now before the thoughts of *****mas and kids get locked into you all. As I am sure you are all aware by now this site is...
  11. Hi

    I am not sure that I merit a place in this community as I am no longer a “real” Southend United supporter. I started supporting Southend when my father took me to see Southend v Southampton in the old 3rd Division South. This would have been in the 1956/57 season My father had previously taken...

    Great Wakering Rovers vs Southend United

    Seeing as there has been no posts on this and it kicks off in a couple of hours. Thought I would start up a thread. Who is going? I wish I could go was always a good friendly when I went a really nice friendly club and glad there will be a decent team out our as opposed to last years.
  13. The quality that are going

    PB might find it hard to fill the boots of those that are leaving. Players move around all the time, but loose Worrel,Payne and Bentley, arguably the three best players we have is a blow. Timlin is what 31, 32, has he still got the legs that makes him the player he was, maybe. I wish PB luck in...

    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...
  18. Players You Wished had left the club

    In light of the last couple of days with some players declaring that they want out of the club, I thought it might be a bit of fun to discuss the players that we wish had left the club but who for whatever reason either outstayed their welcome or were given contract extensions. I'll start...
