    Default Julian Hails

    Nice interview with JH on the Fulham website.
    See he's a big fan of Peter Taylor's.

    Cracking interview, nothing but good memories of Julian Hails, none less than the hat-trick against Leicester and a worldy on the opening day of the season up at Scarborough

    Great quote this:

    My style was probably better suited to the sort of football Southend played and with the likes of Ronnie Whelan, Chris Powell and Mike Marsh in the team, I was playing with some very talented colleagues.
    What he doesn't know is that a friend of mine took his then girlfriend (now wife), who was an Arsenal season ticket holder, to a Southend game, and she was so impressed with JH that she actually contacted Arsene Wenger, suggesting that he send someone down to Roots Hall to have a look.

    What a great player he was, I have not seen a better right back play for our club since he left. He was always committed and never let the team down in any way. The same goes for Powell on the left side. What a team we had before it went terribly wrong.

    I thought he was a right midfielder. I remember him filling in once or twice at right back, but in my mind he was a midfielder....

    It might be my memory, but I'm sure someone with a better memory or some facts to hand can put me right.

    He was a right-winger when we were in the Championship, but had been converted to a wing-back by the time we were back in the Fourth Division. Was a better wing-back than winger IMO.

    Our least likely hat-trick hero ever - and I'm including Leon Cort in that.

    I do like Clohessy but i still prefer Hails, maybe its because this was the period when i started getting into Southend United and feel more biased towards my childhood heroes. I do remember he came to us as a right winger but filled in at right back and stayed there making the number 2 shirt his own.
