    Enjoyed the match last night , it was a very entertaining evening + well worth the tenner admission. But some of the decisions by our management team was ridiculous. We had 2 of our trialists who must wonder why they wasted their time coming to the club. Firstly Don Cowan , a lightening fast...

    Am I the only one worried?

    I'm going to guess I'm not but personally I'm worried. We currently have 11 senior professionals available for the first game potentially according to Chris Phillips. 14 in the whole team apparently. In total if Barker leaves we'll have 18 players which will leave room for two players if the 20...

  12. Players being released

    Brown said a minute a go that 3 or 4 players not involved today are being released. so my guess on 2 of them are barker and (unfortunately) Phillips. who does everyone else think?

    Summer clearout

    So as we are now 100 percent looking at next season I believe a big old clearout is required. I am certainly not looking to start a big slagging off of players just an honest assessment of the team and where they as individuals and as a team have slumped from the team that obtained 83 points...

  18. Captain Cresswell

    Seeing Phil Brown hand the captain's armband to Ryan Cresswell on Friday got me thinking and wondering why Luggy never gave the armband to the same player? Ryan is a natural leader, gives everything to the course and appears well respected by his team mates. Everything you could want in a...

    Southend United's oldest living player

    Does anybody know who this is? Be good if he got taken to Wembley by the club. Of course, if it is Chris Barker he will likely be there in a playing capacity anyway.
