Portsmouth then Sunderland, Ipswich, Rotherham, Peterborough and Coventry top our poll. But where are Lincoln?

On Friday we had over 3,000 visitors, followed by a quiet weekend. Not everyone took part in our top six poll  but over 1200 votes (not voters) have now been cast. That’s not bad, I suppose, for a League One fans’ site but I am expecting a few more will chip in before the season […]

Ipswich or Portsmouth? Rotherham or Peterborough? How about Lincoln or Coventry? It’s your choice

Last season our punters got it more or less right and correctly predicted most of the top six. Luton were missed but that was mainly down to the Coventry Ninjas, whose hijack of last year’s poll pushed them (Luton) out of the top places. Maybe the ninjas or another club’s fans will do the same […]

Sixer’s Southend Soapbox: old grounds, new towns and penalties

SoapboxSOUTHEND

Pete Sixsmith was planning a sporting Bank Holiday weekend, which is one reason why you’ve had to wait a little longer than normal to read his take on what was a disappointing end to our league campaign down on the Essex coast. Friday was meant to be a stop off in Lincolnshire, where Durham were […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Southend survive. Sunderland slump. Some season!

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

We’ve had our own last game celebrations and it would be churlish to deny Southend theirs today. In a game that lacked quality they deserved as much as Sunderland and on this showing they’ll have a  chance to repeat this feat next season. Yet, I feel the team that started today won’t be the one […]

The First Time Ever I saw Your Ground: Southend United and Roots Hall.

Salut Banner5(featured image)

There are people who go onto websites and blogs in order to vent their spleen, or give abuse from behind the anonymity of the internet. Not on this website. They come to experience quality. I haven’t been keeping count but we’ve had two seasons, home and away, and various cups. I’d be surprised if this […]

Southend United vs Sunderland: in search of the winning mood ahead of playoffs

Click Jake's image to enter

Our Southend “Who are You?” interviewee Ian Charnock has expressed the hope that Jack Ross adopts a cautious approach and holds back on selecting key players. But isn’t it important to end the disappointing league programme on a high? A team that has won only one of the last six games is arguably not in […]

Southend Who are You? Marathon man hopes Jack Ross rests key Sunderland players

Southend A

Monsieur Salut writes: this was to have been our promotion party, the last game of the season with a return to the Championship already sealed or to play for. Well, we know what happened to that pipedream. Sunderland can improve their playoff position by winning, and gain a modest boost to morale in the process, […]

Sixer’s Substitute’s Southend Soapbox: Sunderland leave Shrimpers high and dry

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Sunderland 3 Southend United 0 Malcolm Dawson writes……don’t be deceived. This was no walk in the park, though we did finish the game as comfortable winners. More comfortable than the Sunderland supporter who appeared on Friday’s edition of Mastermind, anyway. If you didn’t see it and want to catch up on the i-player I won’t […]

Sixer’s Southend Sevens: M Salut’s first visit, McGeady’s first goal (for a while)

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: As the only member of the Salut! brigade not at the match it’s left to me to mind the store.  No doubt M Salut will provide details of his trip in due course, and Pete Sixsmith will provide his normal match report, while Malcolm’s observations might come a little later but be all the […]

Sunderland, Bolton and Bury. Our League One financial ramble has to end somewhere.
