It is now time for ALL of us to get behind him and the team whether you are at Roots Hall, listening on the radio, or watching on ifollow.

Chris Powell's Southend United Checkatrade EFL Trophy Home Team to face Portsmouth


The Roots Hall pitch is ready for action at 19.45pm Tuesday 8th January 2019, looks like we are going to have light cloud cover for tonight’s game, but it will be near freezing so wrap up warm, those hard wooden seats in the East Stand will be like sitting on an iceberg.


Someone has just put his last pound in the meter and the floodlights are on.
