  1. Kyle Asante

    Kyle Asante

    The diminutive striker has joined Southern League Premier Division club St Neots Town. The report says he has moved from Barnet but I can't find anything that suggests he ever signed for the Bees, though he did play as a trialist in a match against Swansea U21s in October.
  3. Asante loaned out

    20 year old forward Kyle asante has signed on a month's loan for Thurrock. Do you feel he still has a future with us?

    Football Manager 2012 - January Ratings for Southend

    Looks like I'll have some higher guidelines to work with when doing the ratings for January due to our position at this stage. I should be able to rate 'key players' (of which there should be five) between 85 and 100 for Current Ability. Over the summer, due to our mid-table finish last...

    Loans In/Out?

    Anyone think it would beneficial to send Asante or Crawford on loan to Plymouth when our strikers are in better shape (A week or two)?. They'd earn match experience in League Two, something that would really help them and they'd probably play week in week out. The wages may be a problem but they...

    Surplus to Requirements?

    So, with our summer dealings complete (for the moment) it is evident that we need a clear out. We now have at least 30 players to choose from - HERE When did we last have this many!?... I would also suggest that we must have one of the biggest squads at this level. With that in mind. Who...

    Starting already.......

    Well I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by some of our fan base, but listening to the coverage of the game on BBC Essex last night, I couldn't quite believe my ears, when a text was read out stating that Sturrock should "......do us all a favour, and go back to Devon, taking his son with...

  14. Developmental Contracts

    With the news that we have offered 6 contracts to youth team players, does it mean the end for the four players who are currently already on developmental contracts? Can anyone shed any light on whether Adetayo Osifuwa, Merrick James-Lewis, Marcus Milner or Kyle Asante deserve to get a pro...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Gillingham

    Ferdinand trained yesterday and as long as he has had no reaction, he should be back in the line up this evening. Other than that i would expect the team to pick itself. I would personally like to see Sawyer start in a 4-5-1 formation, with Sturrock dropping to the bench. but I think that is...
  18. Pre-Match Thread Morecambe vs Southend

    Thought I'd start this off as no-one else had. With Hall out, Ferdinand facing a fitness test and Banton unlikely to sign in time, starting 11 anyone? Can see Sawyer on the right, but don't fancy either Easton or Grant on the left if Ferdinand is fit enough, unless we go with a 4-5-1, with...

    Roots Hall Pitch

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but the pitch at RH is probably in the worst condition that I can remember in a long time. I'm presuming that its like it is because of TefRons cost cutting exercise, but it could come back to haunt us, if we miss out on promotion/play offs. On at...
