    Walsall...

    One thing that did make me laugh, was the scoreboard after Coxy's strike, read Southend 2 Walsall 3

    Game of 2 halves - that's all I can muster at the moment, great 3 points though.

    Question; When was the last time we came back from 2 down to win???

    First half. Worst half of the season. Poor tactics and woeful defending allowed walsall 2 goals from nothing.

    Second half. Best of the season. Attacking threat,3 goals, correct use of players and a well deserved win.


    The atmosphere in the West today was cracking.

    Dreadful first half, nothing came together. First 10 minutes of the second half: A bit better, but still poor.
    Last 30 minutes: WOW! Incredible performance, if we play like that for the rest of the season we'll be right up there. Very impressed.
    TBV were brilliant as usual, no matter what the score. From 2-1 onwards the West was bouncing.
    Great day out at the Hall
    S.U.F.C, the team for me!

    Got home at half time and turned the radio on to find out we were 0-2 down to Franck Moussa :'(. The second half sounded like a fantastic half of football, a great win that showed real character.

    walsall two efforts in first half two goals. ranger at least that but missed.
    Walsall offered little and once Ranger scored it was a different game.

    One question was team selection. What was that all about
    Subs changed the game
    Great finish

    Always amazes me how goals seem to rewrite the story. We were definitely poor against an equally poor Walsall but we carved them up beautifully on 2-3 occasions just as they did to us. If Ranger had put away the chances (as for me he really should have done), we'd have been 2-0 up and cruising before they even troubled us.

    From what I saw, there was nothing wrong with the formation first half today. We just didn't take our chances before openong the door for Walsall to get into a game they were nowhere near. We (Ranger) might not have taken he chances but we surely created them.

    Incredible afternoon. Hard to pick a MOTM, but hats off to all 3 subs who all came on totally up for it and all contributed massively. Incredible, just incredible.

    Amos is not the answer, for all the people on here clamouring for him to start.

    Walsall had two shots in the opening half, and scored both of them.

    Inniss is awful.

    Thomson should of come back in unless her wasn't 100%

    Brown got it spectacularly wrong.

    We got away with it in the last 30 minutes.

    Walsall were terrible.

    "Brown got it spectacularly wrong."

    ...even though we won.

    I agree with at least 5 of your 7 points but still don't understand how Ranger missing two sitters before Walsall scored from their only two chances (one after Ted kicked the straight to their winger) shows Brown getting it spectacularly wrong?

    Sadly for Amos, he wasn't able to dictate the game or have a huge impact, but I think that will come for him in time. I think there's definitely a very good power in there with a great future.

    We was poor in the first half, I don't see where you're going with this? Maybe Ranger had a couple of chances but we didn't create much else. We've been plying 4-4-2 all season then all of a sudden Brown changes 4-2-3-1 - didn't understand that personally.
