  1. Breaking News Ron's blog 24/02/09

    Whilst the rest of us were watching the match, Ron was emailing us his latest thoughts: I want to begin this week by thanking all our supporters who were able to attend the match at Colchester this weekend. The 1800 or so who made the journey across Essex showed, once again, what passion is...

    Scolari's Not To Blame

    Luis Felipe Scolari may have paid the price for Chelsea's bleak midwinter, but who was really to blame for the club's decline in form? The Brazilian boss may have made mistakes in his short reign at Stamford Bridge, but he was never given the tools he needed to rebuild an ageing squad. It was...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...
  4. ''Don't worry be happy''

    No significant moves in the transfer market. Again! Be happy. The OS fails to keep the paying supporter updated with moves or lack of moves. Again! Be happy. We are aspiring to consolidation and fearing relegation. Again! Be happy. We await a string of excuses to be trotted out by the club as to...

    Chelsea Need To Look In The Mirror

    Mike Riley may have cost them the game, but it is Chelsea's under-performing superstars who have cost themselves the title. Even before the ludicrous dismissal of Frank Lampard, the Blues had barely threatened Liverpool's goal and some of their players need to ask themselves some serious...

    Magical Modric

    Spread the word, Luka Modric has arrived. After six months of being kicked off the ball, stamped into the mud and having his pocket money stolen by the bigger boys, the little Croatian wizard has finally put in a performance worthy of his reputation. He tore Stoke City apart at White Hart Lane...

    Rafa's Not Keane On Robbie

    As a GBP20m striker, failing to make the starting line-up is disappointing. Being repeatedly substituted on the odd occasion that you do is even worse. But the nadir of Robbie Keane's short and unhappy time on Merseyside must surely be the indignity of being kicked off the bench in favour of...

    The Midfield Puzzle...

    Chelsea game aside, these last few weeks have been more and more worrying for the club... With our success over the last few years has come an ever increasing fan base with ever increasing expectations and with the team now failing to meet these expectations yesterday, for the first time, I...

    You Lucky *******s

    Only Tottenham could make such a simple task so ludicrously difficult. Only Tottenham could take an unloseable game and almost throw it away. Harry Redknapp has booked his place at Wembley for a second season running, but he won't kid himself that his team deserves it. Two late goals from Roman...

    A really nice story

    Maybe not overly news worthy, but hey... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/south_yorkshire/7791427.stm

    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

    Arsenal are the architects of their own problems sometimes. Their failure to secure top spot in Group G can be attributed directly to their inability to beat a woeful Fenerbahce side at The Emirates earlier in the campaign. That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

    To melt your hearts on a cold day...

    I posted this in the Live Chat thread, but for those who don't want to look through all of that rubbish (which lets face it, most of it is!) I thought it was worthy of a thread all of it's own. I give you the story of Christian the Lion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adYbFQFXG0U
  15. Penny for the Band!

    Letter in Monday's Times I though worthy of wider circulation: Nice story. Just one quibble, surely the band was the supporters club's, and not the Sally Army's?

    Why England Bother

    If you happen to be in possession of a British passport and you're in Berlin tonight, it might be worth taking your football boots with you. Given the speed at which England's stars are dropping out of contention, you'll probably get a game. Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley...

    Cup against Non League opposition (1922)

    here's another one of DoDtS's history lesson, here's how it was when we played non league oposition in 1922 WORKSOP TOWN 1-2 SOUTHEND UNITED F.A.Cup 1st Round 7th JANUARY 1922 Worksop were a non league side, but so were we two seasons previously so this meant little. Worksop, which is in...

    Forgive me my right-wing brothers

    This isn't an attempt to mend fences and look to ingratiate myself with the left-wing posters who gloried in the victory of Barack Obama, but I have had something of a change in heart. I still don't think Obama is a worthy presidential candidate, and I am upset that he got such an easy ride...

    Pass a Poppy...

    Morning Chaps and Chapesses.. I am currently away at the moment, so not been on for a while. However, i thought with a week to go, i would start this again, which is pass a poppy. I posted something similar last year, and the idea is, maybe, just until the 11th November, possibly you may...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1 Leeds United 0

    Well done Steve Tilson and the boys... No boring 1-0 this one. A truly enthralling match at the Hall in which Southend emerged as worthy winners through an excellent long-range free kick from Dan Harding on 18 minutes. Southend started well in the first half with a virtuoso performance from...
