    Worthington gone

    Nigel Worthington has resigned as York City manager. Only one win so far this season, so he has decided to fall on his sword.

    Chico Hamilton

    Nice article here. He retired last year to move to Florida after a stint coaching in Ohio http://www.thisweeknews.com/content/stories/worthington/sports/2012/05/16/boys-soccer-praise-comes-with-jabs-for-retiring-hamilton.html

    Southend United XI with a more famous relative

    How about a Southend United XI consisting solely of players who had a more famous dad or brother who also played footabll (not cousins or third cousins, five times removed). Also you can only have one member of the family (so ruling out both Worthington's) and the more famous relative cannot...
  6. Wow what a team......

    I was just pondering.......Southend have had some great talents pulling on the shirt over the years but if can you imagine what this team would have played like? All of the above players have played for Southend in the not too distant past.... Banks, Best, Hurst, Greaves, Moore...
  7. Kevin Hogg


    the current form, the dreadfully dreary football played, financial questions, popularity of Chairman, new stadium taking 27 years and counting and a general bout of recent depression, Southend United is still, without a shadow of a doubt - the greatest football club in the world!! Anyone from...

    Memory Lane The Blues Brothers XIs

    Tomorrow as some of you head towards Brighton I will be heading the other way towards Worthing. Its one of my best mates ("The Pilot") stag do's and were off Quad biking and Pigeon Shooting. Brighton is such an easy one for me. 10 mins on the train, no worrys about how late I stay drinking...

    Brighton's New Stadium

    Brighton's New Stadium starts on 17th Dec Dream will become a reality when work starts on Falmer Some dates are imprinted in the minds of Albion fans. May 21, 1983, and April 26, 1997, are two obvious examples. Now December 17, 2008, can be added to the list. A quarter of a century after...

    Stockport Game

    Looks like the Stockport County game at Roots Hall on Saturday 11th.Oct. may be in some doubt. Their striker Peter Thompson has been called up to the Northern Ireland squad for their forthcoming World Cup Qualifiers against Slovenia and San Marino. Thompson's inclusion in Nigel Worthington’s...

    Official SZ Match Report - Huddersfield Town

    I think Matt & James are otherwise detained today, so I am just going to post my report as a thread on here (instead of it being uploaded to the main page - for the time being!)

    Anyone got good kit knowledge?

    I'm trying to find a good photo/description of what can only be described as a one-off third shirt that we used in 1998/99 (first season back in Div 3). We wore it away at Gillingham in the first leg of the Worthington Cup First Round I think (won 1-0, Adrian Clarke scored) I can remember the...

    32 Years

    A remark on the Barnsley cup thread said that it had been 32 years since our last home cup tie in Rd 4 ............. amazing. I remember it well. T'was the 75/76 season when we truely were cack, ending up second from bottom in Div 3, the last season of the Rowley era before 'Smiffy the saviour'...
  18. Stop Living in the Past!

    I do not understand why so many fans seem willing to write this season off and are therefore not bothered by our current form. Many fans are almost willing us to get relegated just so the club can return to the days of playing Macclesfield / Barnet and attracting 3500 people a game. We are a...
  19. Tilson

    I know this post will **** off 99% of posters on this board but I am realy don't think Tilson is up to managing at this level. Tilson has been fantastic for us over the past couple of years BUT the Championship is a completly different level. If you look at yesterday's game playing two...
