  1. Breaking News Theo up for PFA Fans' Player of the Month

    I know he's got next to no chance of winning with Grigg and ex-Shrimper Charlie Mulgrew in there, but wouldn't it be great for the lad and his confidence going into next season if all shrimpers got behind him and pushed him towards the top of the vote? It ends on Thursday, all details here...

    Request a bet

    Any idea how to go about putting a bet on our young Dru making a full first team England international appearance before he turns 26? Sky bets request a bet wouldn't offer it. I know alot of people think he is over rated, I like him, and I like a punt!
  3. Thatchers Children

    To save hi-jacking the Brexit thread I thought people might like to explain who they first voted for and why. Lets keep it to your personal reasons so no need to repeat to many grand and well covered anti Thatcher rants etc. I had left school in 1981 so my first vote was for Labour in 1983. If...
  4. Floval Flyer


    All this talk of PB out, and yes I agree - time to go... But, who would legitimately take over the reigns? Knowing how Ron likes a 'name' I wouldn't be surprised if any of the following are on speed dial at the moment: Mark Warburton Paul Lambert Billy Davies Simon Grayson All of the above...

    Ed Stein

    I received a Whatsapp message from my neice yesterday. This is it (verbatim - she's a teenager) She went on to say: As an aside, you wouldn't believe she's just been predicted all A's and A*'s for her GCSEs...

    Wordsworth and a new contract

    Full page article on the back of the Echo today where Wordsworth states that he loves playing for Southend but that contract talks have stalled because he doesn't think he is being valued as high as he should be. No doubt the Echo will publish the article on here today some time and, for...

    Boots and Laces

    My old man has been a fairly regular visitor recently at Boots and Laces until he was turned away last Thursday by a builder. He was told that he wouldn't be able to watch training sessions in the short term. Unfortunately he didn't think to ask why... anyone know what the works are and when he...

    Essex power list.

    I normally wouldn't lower myself to this level but how the hell can the owner of Billericay be 19 places higher than Ron Martin? Essex Power List
  9. Lift up your top Ladies, and show us your Bra. Said the stewards.

    So Grimsby were playing at Stevenage in August. Some Stevenage stewards were asking the Grimsby Ladies and young Ladies to lift up or open their tops to show if pyrotechnics were hidden in their Bra's. This all sounds a bit perverted by the stewards as I'm sure they wouldn't have been instructed...

    Premier League vote to close transfer window earlier

    Wouldnt affect us just yet as PL only, but surely the EFL will follow suit. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/11024203/premier-league-clubs-vote-to-close-transfer-window-before-season-starts
  11. Devonshire at it again !

    Cannot fathom out why AD has never had the chance at league level,taking Braintree almost there was a minor miracle,now Maidenhead nicely placed in 7th after a solid start,wouldn't shock me if MU reach the PO.

    Meet the Blues Day 30 July 2017

    Joe Bedford signs

    First professional contract, a few more of these wouldn't go amiss http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/733544/Southend-United-Midfielder-Joe-Bedford-Goal-AFC-Wimbledon-Watch-Video

    Brown interested in Kightly

    According to CP, absolutely no hope in hell of us signing Kightly. Firstly he wouldn't want to drop down to league one and secondly no way could we ever afford his wages.

    IF we make the play-offs...

    Let's say that we beat Bury and Millwall lose to Bristol Rovers... Does anyone actually fancy us in the play-offs? We all know the importance of form going into these, it was pretty crucial when we came up only two years ago, but we are currently experiencing our worst run of form of the...
  16. Play off semi finals

    Don't want to remotely curse things but am planning for work and wouldn't want to miss them if we got into the play offs. I know when the final would be but does anyone know about the semi's? Even the weeks that they are in would be helpful!
  17. Best Squad Ever?

    I've been thinking about this one and I'm struggling to think when we've had a better squad. I looked at the bench yesterday and for once thought that at least 3 - 4 of them wouldn't look out of place in the Championship. That's not including the first 11 and 2 or 3 out injured at the moment. I...
  18. Who would you prefer in the Football League?

    Alright, they wouldn't be in the same league as us, (unless we suffer greatly), but who would you like to see join the Football League in May? Looking quite tight at the top, with only 6 points separating 1st - 5th. We'll stick to the current top 10... 1. Lincoln - 55pts ------------------ 2...

    Question 2016 - How Was It For You?

    Not spotted a similar thread so thought I'd start it for a bit of quick reflection before we properly get going with 2017. Have seen something similar I think in previous years and always find it interesting - we all have a common bond in SUFC but outside of that all have different lives with...

    New Years Honours list

    I think it was Ricey who said somewhere that gongs are given away like sweeties these days. Now I've had a quick run through this year's list there are some 'famous' names that do come into the 'Really?' category for me. I'm not going to name my 'really?' candidates as it's still the season of...
