    Dru Yearwood

    What a great first season he's had but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here... we've been here before with promising yoofs. Frank Moussa? Kane Ferdinand? Both had oodles of promise, never fulfilled it. But lets just say he is the "real deal". I don't think it'll be us that sells him...
  2. Are there 4 Clubs which might finish below us?

    As we need 4 clubs to finish below us to avoid relegation what are the chances that might happen? Bury must be doomed. No goals in 7 straight defeats with just 2 league wins since September. Surely we will finish above them. Rochdale also just 2 league wins since September also look doomed...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Bradford City

    Yeah, yeah, I know it's early, but I've just been chatting to a client of mine who is a Bradford City season ticket holder. Asked him about Thommo and he said he's only seen him briefly, but thought he looked a decent player. However, Matt Kilgallon and Nathaniel Knight-Percival will always get...
  4. PB's replacement

    Given Phil's recent comments it appears his tenure is coming towards its end, so who do people think is likely to be a sensible and realistic replacement? Could we afford get Nathan Jones from Luton ? how about a Powell / Barrett partnership?

    Brown interested in Kightly

    According to CP, absolutely no hope in hell of us signing Kightly. Firstly he wouldn't want to drop down to league one and secondly no way could we ever afford his wages.
  6. Ref Watch ....... Bury A

    In charge of tomorrow's tricky looking fixture is Richard Clark from South Broomhill in Morpeth, Northumberland. Morpeth were, of course, the team that deprived Bowers and Pitsea of a Wembley appearance in the FA Vase last year by the narrowest of narrow margins in the two legged semi-final...
  7. Question West Stand idiots

    Is it me or are we not getting a few idiots attending at the hall over the last few games.Like running on the pitch and on Saturday letting off flares.Also i witnessed a few trying to climb over the gates to get at the Gillingham fans.If this carries on the club will receive a penalty can we...

    Coker's future?

    So what do think is going to happen with Coker's future? Chris Phillips stating on twitter yesterday that Brown had plenty to say about it, regarding Reading, but he didn't state what Brown said. Personally, I think it would be a huge blow to lose him, I think it's a lot harder finding a good...

    Brown on the radio

    Just heard PB in his post match interview. Not his usual chirpy interview at all. Said that the speculation re his future needs to be sorted out between him and Ron. Therefore - he wants to go and Ron won't let him. There is no other explanation. The trouble is, for that to happen then we...

    Housing market

    Great if your a seller and awful if your a buyer. I'm getting married this month and looking to move out of our two bed rented flat into a 3 bed house. Can't afford to buy with most places like £250k+ and saving 25k is beyond us at the moment and rentals are just crazy. 3 bed houses in dumpy...
  11. Another central defender to go? Thompson linked with move

    MK Dons could make a late move to sign Southend United defender Adam Thompson before Monday’s transfer deadline, according to reports. The Mirror claims the Dons and Championship rivals Huddersfield Town are interested in the 23-year-old Northern Ireland international. Thompson graduated from...

    Operation Meet the Street

    Did anyone else see this on BBC1 just before Christmas? It featured in Episode 3 TV Presenter Dominic Littlewood, who is a Southend boy. The programme focuses on loneliness and at one point there is an interview with a guy called Keith who says he has started coming to watch Southend so he can...

    Throwing this question out to the SZ family.... My daughter who is now 4/5 months needs a placement at a primary school as you need to look at options early to get a place, we live in Rayleigh (as hockleys favourite son I am only on loan to Rayleigh and some day to return) and we are looking at...

  16. Bradford City fire

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/apr/15/bradford-fire-stafford-heginbotham-martin-fletcher Quite revelatory stuff from Martin Fletcher - that the deaths of 56 fans may not have been an accident.
  17. Ref Watch ..... Bury A

    Matches against Bury in recent years have been close. Our last five matches at Gigg Lane have seen three 1-1 draws and a 1-0 apiece. Our last four home matches have been draws. The referee in charge tomorrow is Tony Harrington from Cleveland a third year League referee. His first couple of...
  18. Is the passing game dead?

    As I mentioned on another thread, I've watched a fair few Ryman Prem games this year and have been surprised by how direct it is. It is very much headers and volleys for 90 minutes with the ball very rarely going sideways to the widemen & fullbacks where there is space. I discussed this with a...
