  1. Yorkshire Blue

    Planning ahead

    Great to see McLaughlin sign a new contract. He now joins Anton Ferdinand (who'll be 33), Theo Robinson, HMP's Nile Ranger and new signings Stephen Hendrie and Michael Kightly (who'll be 32) as the only players under contract for the 2018 season. Coker, McGlashan, Turner (who'll be 34) plus...

    Southend United Irish XI

    What about yer? Is there a decent Southend United football team with Oirish connections, do you see? Perhaps I'm a fecking eijit but I can't think of many - fair play to yer if you can help. So far I have Anton Flood in goal, so he is. Cos he was no fecking use anywhere else. :smile: 1...

    Is Ferdinand the key to success next season?

    The back page of the Echo today has an article on PB having two days of talks with Anton in a bid to keep him at Southend. It seems PB knows there are other clubs monitoring the situation as Anton would be available on a free. Ferdinand is seen as an important player by the club and his...
  6. Pre-Match Thread Shrewsbury Town V Southend United

    Last away game of the regular season. And also, for this weekend, Last Chance Saloon as surely nothing other than a win will keep us in the race for the play offs. I expect Ben Clarkson has been pulling double shifts and drafted in some emergency help; is the "no news is good news" saying...
  7. Question Ferdinand replacement

    If Anton is not fit for Bolton then who should replace him? I think White would be the best bet.
  8. Adam Barrett Day

    This is a very specific post. I'm not trying to duplicate the Adam Barrett appreciation thread, it's a specific campaign and I want thoughts on how we do it. I propose that Adam Barrett is invited to our last home game of the season and paraded on the pitch before the game like Anton was when...

    Phil on tonight's game

    There's a big back page article from Phil in the Echo today on tonight's match. Obviously he gives time to the fact that the wives of Michael Timlin and Anton Ferdinand are about to give birth and he then talks about the impact of that, but the bit that made me smile was: "We will look at the...

  11. its blindingly obvious ....

    that Ted should have been advised to wear a cap with a peak to combat the low sun....... really a mark down on goalkeeeping coach and coaching staff...... that said it look as if their goal was down to Antons poor header - maybe he lacked confidence in Ted or Ted lacked the confidence to call...

    With Fortune in talks over a new deal and his set to expire at the end of January, it seems to not be looking good for Jakob Sokolik given that his deal expires on New Year's Eve. Wonder if Brown is planning to get rid but with Inniss out and Barrett seemingly all but gone, that would leave us...
  13. Humble pie !

    Been away. Phil has managed to turn the blues from non scoring to banging them in for fun,1 point off the PO and on a super run of results,hats off to Phil as the signing of Nile must be the transfer coup of the season ,still not seen him,yet many have said he is unplayable at times,incredible...

    Quite a Turnaround

    To be fair, it looks as though Phil has managed to turn around our fortunes when it seemed he had run out of ideas. I cashed in on him after Rochdale away - constant chopping and changing of players, half the team playing out of position, and no sign of any organisation or game plan. Given that...
  15. PB on Allardyce
