    Amadou Ba

    19 year old French striker on trial. Doesn't speak any English and has looked impressive so far by all accounts. Brown talking about offering him a deal. I do love it when a completely unheard of foreign trialist turns up. Hopefully he'll be more Bilel Mohsni than Adam Bouzid. Wonder if it was...
  2. If sturrock took over another League 2 club..

    If he was hired as manager for another club who comes to the Hall, would you give good reception for no reason?, Or Boo him for keeping us in LEague 2 for four miserable seasons, and wasting money on spillane, spicer, flood, smith, bouzid, Dave Martin, Elliot Benyon, all spent money on, to leave...
  3. Southend XI with little game time

    Got a bit bored so wondered how many permanent signings we made that rarely played for us. To make it a bit harder, loanees and youth team players who never signed professional deals with us aren't allowed. GK: Kelvin Jack = 0 minutes DEF: DEF: DEF: Baldwin = 180 minutes (his loan spell doesn't...
  4. Strike Force

    Question How much of a difference

    would a fit and on form Adam Bouzid make to this team?
  5. fbm

    I think todays starting XI...

    ...will all be staying next year. Prosser was probably the only doubt but the fact he started todays game I guess means he's been offered another deal otherwise I coiuldn't see the point. Play Nesbit instead if that were the case. The absence of Soares and Bouzid from the bench speaks a lot.

    OK, We got Sawyer, but he can't do it on his own

    I am pleased with the signing of Lee Sawyer, but would be disappointed if we don't see at least one additional face before the window closes. At the moment, I would shape the team around these players. Morris(?) ???, Mohsni, Barker, ??? Hall, Grant, Sawyer, ??? Sturrock/Corr, ??? In...

    Bouzid on trial at Ross County

    according to Luggy on the OS http://www.southendunited.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10444~2266554,00.html

    Adam Bouzid

    Is this guy the forgotten one!? Just can't see him getting much of a sniff at all this season. I mean, Easton gets injured and we have Bouzid, but instead, we go out and get Timlin in on loan. I'm not berating Timlin at all as i think he's fitted in and done a reasonable job. Is it that Sturrock...
  9. Official Match Thread Southend United vs Morecambe

    Timlin and Corr in for Easton and Soares. Interesting to see if it's a 4-4-2. Hope so. Southend: Glenn Morris, Sean Clohessy, Peter Gilbert, Josh Simpson, Bilel Mohsni, Anthony Grant, Barry Corr, Ryan Hall, Michael Timlin, Blair Sturrock, Chris Barker. Subs: Graham Coughlan, Matt Paterson...
  10. Official Match Thread Northampton v Southend

  11. Official Match Thread Southend United vs Torquay United

    Seeing as there's not one yet.... Southend: Glenn Morris, Sean Clohessy, Peter Gilbert, Josh Simpson, Bilel Mohsni, Anthony Grant, Craig Easton, Ryan Hall, Louie Soares, Blair Sturrock, Chris Barker. Subs: Graham Coughlan, Matt Paterson, Sofiene Zaaboub, Adam Bouzid, Rhys Evans, Scott Spencer...
  12. Let's all try to calm down

    OK, that was absolutely awful. But the supporters making the most noise now are the same ones praising the team to the skies after the Bristol City game. I said in a much earlier post that the way this squad has been assembled with a host of journeymen lower league players who weren't wanted...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Port Vale.

    Well match day is upon us yet again. Whilst most of the talk has been about Tilly's pay off and Sturrocks need for a striker , its been a strange week of relative quiet on the zone . This has been slow news week that is for sure. There has even been talk that V festival will affect southend...
  14. Starting 11

    Now that we have almost a full complement of players and having seen the majority of pre-season and league/cup games, I feel that it is really important that we get three points tomorrow, therefore: Morris Bilel Prosser Phillips Barker Simpson Easton Grant Spencer Paterson Corr Subs far more...

    Bilel Mohsni And Adam Bouzid

    Anyone have any further news on whats happening to these guys...Surely theres something else holding this up that we are not aware of? International clearance can't be the only factor because how many deals go through in the Premiership from other countries?work permits maybe? I only really...

    Sturrock on Aldershot

    (Can we have a "Blues Player" type prefix?) :) Key points from PS interview today... * Wolves good draw, money spinner and exciting for club and players. Should keep players on their toes before that game. * Aldershot will be very tough - considering played ET Tuesday. May make changes to...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Bristol City

    Well here we are again. Tonight is the second game of the season and for once we dont face cheltenham town, but we do face a decent team in bristol city. City for those who dont know ply there trade in the championsip and are tipped by some to be a dark horse in the race for the holy grail...
