    Who will be Skipper next season?

    This season we have had Anton Ferdinand, Ben Coker and John White all wearing the Captains's arm band. Who do you reckon will lead the side out next season? I'm betting JW, but this assumes his contract is renewed. Any thoughts?
  2. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...

    Pre-Match Thread Blackpool V Southend United

    Another l o n g trip to Lancashire. Coaches leave The Hall at 6.30am so my guess is the team will either fly or travel Friday. After Tuesday's long trip who will SCP pick? A bonus is we have not been picking up injuries or suspensions like we were early in this topsy turvey season. My team...

    Anton Ferdinand

    Rare for me to start a thread but I am genuinely curious to hear other fans opinions. It seems most people would agree that he has had a shocker of a season and he seems well past it. My Question is, what are other fans opinion of the man constantly on twitter talking about West Ham nearly...

    Anton Ferdinand

    Talking of bad discipline at the club, would it be fair to say this guy has never been accused of being an outstanding influence in the dressing room at any point in his career. I’m thinking West Ham, Sunderland, QPR.

    The Negative Thread

    Oh God. This place. Some of you. Aaaarrrrghhh...... every thread. Everywhere. So, as some have suggested elsewhere, here is ONE thread where you can moan endlessly about the manager, the age of the squad, Nile Ranger, Anton Ferdinand, lack of a signing, the wrong signing, the player who got...

    Pre-Match Thread Scunthorpe United v Southend United

    So, any thoughts on who will replace Lenny in midfield or whether Cox and Anton will be back? Hopefully back to two up front, but who is in or out of favour this week or is on PBs Christmas card list is anyone’s guess?

    Event AGM with Q&A session with Steve Waggott & Anton Ferdinand

    Pre-Match Thread MK Dons V Southend United

    Another tough game at the "freeze bot" Bowl. After Saturdays non show what will PB do next? For me he needs to turn to what we know and a 4 4 2. Ox Demi(or Elvis) Turner, Anton, White Kightly, Leonard, Wright, Tims Cox, MAF Lots of hard work required and use the subs!

    Pre-Match Thread Wigan Athletic vs Southend United

    Sometimes it can be therapeutic to look ahead rather than to look back. With that in mind, next Saturday the team is off to Lancashire and a visit to Wigan Athletic who sit in second place in FL1. Piece of cake, we're going to rip them up. I'm not going to bother with a team selection just yet...

    Anton Ferdinand

    Hardly a game passes without Anton looking off the pace, out of position, caught for speed, you name it, he's been accused of it this season. On his day (which was most of last season) he was a 'class above' defender who used his experience and AdamThompson to counter his lack of pace. This...

    Pre-Match Thread Shrewsbury Town V Southend United

    The games (tough ones!) keep on coming. A lovely little town and a pleasant new(ish) ground with a flat and usually very good pitch. With his curfew I don't believe PB can select Nile. Although our problems have been laid at the injury door I think the current system and midfield has also...

    De Ja Vu...?

    I certainly hope not.. In August last season the idea that our club legend Adam Barrett would be playing some of the final games of his career - was unthinkable. Yet the reality was that time had caught up with a hero. I believe that Anton Ferdinand was runner-up in Player of the Year last...
  20. At Training Today.

    Not much to report, so this will be brief. An 11 v 11 match, stopped every now and again for instructions from Phil Brown. Stand out performers today for me was McGlashan, best attacking player, Matsuzaka(Although still a bit green), Kyprianou and the star was Anton Ferdinand. Nothing got past...
