Why don't you sing "Southend FC" instead of "S U F C"...? Same syllables.. Works better??

It might sound better but the problem is we are not Southend Football Club, we are Southend United Football Club.

Easy when you think about it!

Might be singing that in a few years when the ground doesn't get built and we go bust. Southend FC seems the best name to restart

I take your point, but what happens when we play Sheffield United who are also SUFC? :winking:

I made this one up when Stevenage were singing their version at Roots Hall last season.

When I was young
I followed you
SUFC, the boys in Blue

I'm older now, it's still the same
I follow you, to every game

DA DA DA DA etc

OK quite a few people don't like any generic boring chants which actually get the crowd going.

So that probably includes:- 'Blue Army', 'Come on Southend', 'Everywhere we go', 'Since I was young', 'When the blues go marching in', 'We follow', 'Were top of the league' (maybe!), etc etc etc

Time for these people to come up with a new song I think.
