    100 ball cricket

    I assume most cricket fans on here have seen these latest proposals from the ECB. Thoughts? https://www.ecb.co.uk/news/668162/ecb-presents-100-ball-domestic-game-for-men-and-women I'm all for thinking of new ways to get people in to cricket, but can't see that shaving 20 balls off an innings...
  2. New defence

    PB, dont concede, seems to have gone out the window lately, if he is here next season, for me top of his shopping list is going to be defenders. The present set up, for me dont look good enough.

    How many league goals will Ewes concede?

    They're up to 78 now with 14 games to go.
  4. Change the record, Phil

    If I hear the mantra "clean sheet mentality" one more time, I swear...... New season, new cliche required. How about "Let's go for the jugular"? At least with this one the players can attempt to achieve it even if we concede. What happens with the "CSM" one though if we let a goal in? Has Phil...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-1 Swindon Town

    Same old, same old as we dominate and lose again. Almost identical to Brighton only we had even better chances and dominated more and their goal didn't come so late on. Hunt could've scored and should've done better when he hit straight at the keeper at his near post, as should Payne when he...
  6. Phil....please play the team by Chapperz !

    Phil have a look at the team Chapperz has suggested,this team Imo has the potential to destroy opponents and if used correctly(two up top always)we will fly up the table.Not fussed if we concede as I am convinced that team is full of goals. With Little Jack weaving his magic behind the front 2...
  7. Lack of goals was the downfall !

    So 48 games played and it's all over with the club remaining in the basement division,Phil was dealt most of the cards and he was ok for the bulk of games yet to me the tactics were designed not to concede many! Phil told the SKY commentator he was a 1 0 man and the goals conceded backed up his...
  8. When Saturday comes !

    Feeling nervous, An early goal for us may well turn the tide in our favour yet vital we don't concede anything at all. The lads have one big fat incentive to play out their skins and give everything and send 10,000 possibly home very happy indeed,Wembley awaits and please we can all do it...

    Finish with a whimper or a BANG!

    ? What is it to be for the final stretch of the season? We can't win anything by playing safe: so now lets try and get some goals and entertain. We have 4 very good (for this division) strikers and we may as well have them all on the pitch together. We may concede a few (we are anyway) BUT we...
  10. Is Sturrock losing it?

    I'm quite a fan of PS, but I really am at a loss to understand what he was doing in the 88th minute today. We're in the lead. We now concede a free kick in a dangerous area, so what happens? Substitution. And not even a hint that it's one designed to preserve the lead: it's an attacker taking...

    North bank v dagenham

    Couple of things, First off SUPERB support today got behind the lads well I hope we sounded good from other stands? Loved that we got the cresswell song going and he loves it too (talking to him in the boozer last night) Lastly though can we please please not try and get 'personnel' with the...

    So what exactly DO we want then?

    This board is about opinions and this is mine. It is clear to me that there is an enormous amount of people on here that have not got a clue what it is they actually want. Well, let me rephrase that; they do, but can't see they what they actually want is impossible. They are all like one of...
  13. Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Wimbledon.

    I think it will be better to get the Bradford debacle out of the way and focus on the next one. As we know the Wombles do concede goals alarmingly but they certainly know where the back of the net is. Cue Jack midson. With their breakaways and goal scoring prowess I wonder how our defence...

    Freddy's strike partner

    It's been briefly discussed in another thread but I thought this deserved a discussion of it's own. So, who is best suited to play alongside Freddy? I see Harris and Benyon too similar to Freddy as the 'fox in the box' style forward. In my opinion there are 2 options. 1. Bilel Mohsni -...

    Morecambe - what changes would you make?

    After the debacle on Tuesday that can only be fully appreciated by the "Aldershot 461" (as referred to on another thread and plagiarised by me, so thanks to whoever thought of that. Sounds more like a book by Ray Bradbury!), what changes would you make to the team, either in personnel or...
  16. CC51DAS

    Question Another season in the same league as Morecambe ?

    If we concede that Swindon are now likely to finish above us, we are still in the mix for second place. It is almost impossible to imagine that we will drop below 7th place, given the remaining fixtures with Port Vale, for example, facing tough trips to most of the top sides. But if we...

    The Answer to our bad home form

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10444~2257345,00.html Sturrock can not pin point the problem at home, ... i can The fans. We concede a goal and the crowd are on the teams back. What happened to the home team getting the support. The crowd becoming the 12th man? i went to...
