    You never hear managers say...

    "The referee was awful. The two penalties he gave us never were fouls!" "The red card was fair. Our player deserved it" or "Their red card wasn't. I wouldn't have given it!" "It was well over the line and we should have lost 1-0!" "Their winning goal came after 97 minutes. Just in time, I say!"

    Mobile Phone Usage in cars - Report or not report?

    It seems that various police forces around the country are upping their game when it comes to nabbing drivers using their mobile phones whilst driving. It is also being suggested that other members of the driving public should report vehicles that they see using phones. For what it's worth...
  3. May backs the troops...at long last.

    Government sends our brave boys and girls into action yet they all are subject to false claims about their behaviour. War must be one horrible place,I know I would be one total coward. Currently there are 1,500 claims against our soldiers,300 odd have been settled for £20,000,000,it's lunacy ...

    Tiny Ted

    Interestingly, had the pleasure of sharing a workout this afternoon with Ted Smith at my local gym. I say interestingly for a number of reasons, not least that it took me more than a while to work out that it was actually him. From my vantage point in the South Upper, I've always had the...

    The format of the play-offs

    I've got to say that the format of the play-offs seems excellent, two legged semi-final and the final at Wembley, and I personally wouldn't change anything however it is different elsewhere. As I understand it in Scotland the Play-off for promotion to the Premiership this year was between...

    Mr Kettle caused a little steam to be let off yesterday....

    Really surprised this hasn't popped up on here as yet - at least, not as far as I've seen. AFC Wimbledon v Accrington Stanley, our friend, Trevor Kettle the ref. So, resident refs and members of SZ, what do we make of this? Was he right or was he wrong? Certainly I think the majority of refs...

    Just seen the below article that Ipswich, Preston & Colchester are interested in one of our promising youngsters; http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2016/02/29/ipswich-preston-colchester-interested-in-southends-brandon-scott/? Judging by the video at the bottom of the article, he looks pretty decent...

    Rent deposit

    Received a letter from my old landlord saying I wouldn't be receiving any of my previous deposit back, I'm not a bad tenant at all however I knew I would be charged for some minor repairs and redecorating as quite frankly I was too lazy to paint a flat I was leaving, however on this letter, it...
  11. Breaking News Hendrie's loan extended by 1 month

    PB said it's an initial 32 days but can be extended to 93, if that's 93 from the the day he arrived he wouldn't be eligible for the play off's, is that right or is there a way round it ?

    Wouldn't you have thought that the World Economic Forum could have chosen a better location than Davos for this year's gathering?

    Question Should we rearrange game for 5th December?

    As the Crewe home game is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday 1st March 2016 and they are also out of the FA Cup, wouldn't it make sense to rearrange our game with them to a Saturday as undoubtedly they will bring more supporters on a Saturday rather than a Tuesday night? Or will have I have...
  15. 3,335 at Scunthorpe ....

    Our last win at Scunthorpe was in 1983 and what a win it was. A 6-1 away victory. Hat-trick for Steve Phillips, Pennyfather, Shepherd and a rare Stead goal (just 5 in 340 appearances). You wouldn't have seen our centre half on that day poncing around at the back from corners - it was Paul...

    Col U tickets

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/southend-united-tickets-colchester-united-2786935.aspx Allocation of 2,000. Wouldn't be surprised if they gave us a bit more if we sell that out, though, given their average attendance is 3.5-4k and the stadium holds 10k.

    Question Play off final prints?

    Birthday around the corner and I wouldn't mind an A3 print of us having won the trophy or something. Any idea where I can get one? Tried the club website, but unless I want a picture of Meet The Blues Day 2013 I'm pretty screwed.

    9th September

    This year, on the 9th September (all being well) the Queen will become the longest reigning British monarch of all time. I wouldn't say it's an achievement or even well done to the Queen because she hasn't actually done anything to be Queen for so long, other than have her dad die when she was...
