Off To Southend

Post by EV » Tue Sep 14, 2021 12:15 pm

Well I'm going later & will sing myself hoarse to get behind the lads & manager.
Just my own opinion, but it's a time to support the team more than ever. Time to show just how great us fans can be in times of adversity.
We all want the club to succeed & the club will only do this if we help the lads pull through this tough start.
Whatever the problems off the pitch, whatever peoples feelings towards any of those involved with the club, if we only boost the players each game with vocal support then we can get through this together.
It's really saddens me to see the divide in the fan base. It only weakens our position.
I can make a difference & so can you.!
UP THE SHOTS.!!!

Shots have been very well backed to win tonight with bookies.

Bet 365 yesterday were 1/2 Southend, 11-4 Draw, 6-1 Shots

Now, Evens Southend, 12-5 Draw, 12-5 Shots.

That is some market move for the Shots to come in from 6s to just over 2s in day, usually means when this happens alot of money has gone a Shots win from somewhere and they will put up a good show and go close to winning.... Lets finally hope so!

Hey Danny, did not expect you to be on this thread, but credit were credit is due, i know we both have ,shall we say, slightly different views on all things ATFC,but i am sure ,if not positive, we both want what is best for our club, and a win or hard fought draw would make us smile tonite.
If we win................pizza on me, even that awful Hawaiian !!

I will be there tonight but again not expecting much but you never know. Part of the reason for travelling is to revive some of those old Football League and Cup memories and trips to Roots Hall in front of 8 or 9 thousand, always a good atmosphere there in that stand with the barell roof which is similar to the East Bank. Had a soft spot for that place ever since my first visit back in November 1972, a 2-0 win for the Shots in the FA cup 1st round. We went out in the next round losing 2-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road, great memories though and a whole world away from where we are now sadly.

Southend was my first away game, a 1-0 defeat ( shock) in March 85, was a strange feeling going to an away game on my own as a 14 year old

Good on you Weybourne- reviving those memories. That 2-0 FA Cup win you mention would have been when Southend were in Div 3, with Shots in Div 4. Happy days eh? Now look at us. Bottom of Div 5.


ps..I was unlucky to be at Roots Hall the night we lost 1-10 in the Freight Rover game...
