TrueBlue asked me to write this and a video of today will be uploaded tomorrow.

Today atmosphere, well what can you say! :happy:
It was superb, we sang our hearts out for 90 minutes and it seems to have paid off.
TrueBlue kept it going along with Smiffy fabulous drumming skills, One note ... Smiffy is better than Trueblue on the drum :) but everyone deserves a pat on the back from block V today Superb stuff.

Keep it going, and let it build.

Also can hardly speak after today, if anyone else has any videos please upload.

:support: The Blue Voice :support:

Ps:

Need some words to the european song, lets get it going ....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeI4lAvv7Yk

Agree but I think it'd be kinder to edit it to "Atmosphere vs Torquay". It was great to see people in the East and South joining in the chants and vocal support, possibly the best atmosphere in a long while and we're on the right track.

Yeah, I agree with that. I heard them singing and chanting for a bit but I'm near the end of the stand so nearer to hear.

Blue voice were great today, but i was in my usual seat in the blue east, we were also singing a lot, more than recently. We do try but the acoustics are so poor that in what ever stand you r in, u cant ever really hear the other stands. the main reason today was the teams performance, when the players perform the way they did today the crowd has something to get behind, i thought the first half today was as good as ive seen for a couple of years and that is one reason the atmosphere was great.

Brisbane fans sing that song (well, substituting Southend with Brisbane and Col U with Gold Coast or Sydney of course).

Never heard it in England before though so it could be something pretty unique to Southend.

it would be nice for southend to actually come up with their own original song for a change though. always just seem to be copying what other clubs are singing. for those that went to aldershot, they should have noticed the shots fans were singing this (although incorrectly). st pauli started it, then celtic took it up because of their close links and now it is everywhere.

the "origin of the PAK" thread was/is awesome and recalls how the north bank used to try and use chart songs to adapt to their own about the club and the town, trying to have a better song than other clubs in the division. that in my opinion is what it should be about, rather than just copying others. TBV seem to making a great effort and so should strive for their own identity that can reignite the "roots hall roar"

Top post Jack, and totally agree, I was sitting right at the top of Block V, smack bang in the middle of the noise, and I must say, it was absalutely rocking today, 90 mins of singing, great stuff to all of those involved. Noticed a few with mobiles out, so will imagine there will be a few videos uploaded soon, I got a video of the final few moments of the match, and the reaction after the whistle. Will try and get it uploaded tomorrow.

"The crowd were on to us, they were at the races today all credit to 'em"

Was the comment from Torquay manager Paul Buckle on the FL Show a moment ago.

Good work chaps. This needs to be the standard...we can and will make a difference.

me too!!! Martin out

Admire your principles but you're cutting your noses off to spite your faces. You missed a game which reignited the Blues' spirit and made those of us there reaffirm ourselves to the religion of being a Southend supporter. The passion is back and these players deserve the support of anyone who is able, to get behind them. These guys have done nothing wrong so as Southend supporters we should be supporting them.

Fantastic work by TBV and others around the ground, still not sure about Blind Date though.
