    Squad Contracts 2018/19

    The youths

    Interesting - and encouraging - to see Miles Mitchell-Nelson and Lewis Gard on the bench. I believe Mitchell-Nelson is a centre-half and Gard a midfielder. This is an important time of the year for the youngsters with contract decisions being made and I expect this means these two will be/have...
  6. Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Gillingham

    After watching the game at Gillingham in August who would have thought that we would be just 1 point ahead of them with 7 games left. I think we might have 2 or 3 changes from yesterday. Kightly and Harrison to start with possibly Timlin back in. I think we still need 3 points to be safe...

    Expiring contracts

    Now we have a manager, he's bound to be looking at how to improve the squad and a number of players are bound to be concerned for their future. The below first team players have contracts which are set to expire in just 6 months, so who would you renew based on the current squad? GK Ted Smith...

    Free Agent List

    Well that's another 'exciting' deadline day out of the way so I guess that any new arrivals (if we need any) will be from the pool of free agents out there. Though I have to say that I am quite excited at the thought that some of our youngsters will now need to show their worth - not much point...

    The money in football

    Is it me or has football gone mad. Rank average prem players going for 20 million +. Championship players going for 15 million. It's complete madness. I don't think it will be long before league 1 clubs start regularly start paying 1 million + for players. Something has to give. It's a sad...

    Question The New Youth Players

    Afternoon, Thanks to Manor15 for updating the squad contracts, and it's great to see the new youth team players getting their first deals. Let's hope they make it through to a longer term deal before long. However, I'm not sure where each of them actually play? Can someone in the know give a...

    Squad Contracts 2017/18

    Now it's clear who we have under contract for the coming season, time for a new thread and hopefully some new signings to add soon. GK Ted Smith - 2018 Mark Oxley - 2018 DEF Ben Coker - 2018 (option until 2019) Jason Demetriou - 2018 John White - 2018 Anton Ferdinand - 2019 Harry Kyprianou -...

    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...

    Striking options

    Was just talking to my son and was finding it hard to think the last time we had a strike force of this calibre. I apologise if I've got their ages and contract lengths wrong, but hope you get the idea Cox - by far one of the best strikers we've had in years, 31 and signed on for 2 years...

    Ryan Leonard (contract extension clause)

    Had what is one of our last liaison meetings with Steve Kavanagh yesterday, and I asked about contracts that are expiring. It'll be in the Minutes, but I am sure he won't mind me sharing that Lenny has a 1 year extension clause in his contract. Bloody fantastic news, but I hope there will...

    Squad Contracts 2016/17

  18. Player loyalty

    Nice to see Tommo signing for another year, club stood by him through his injury last year and he has repaid that faith. With Bentley and Payne they have been offered contracts but turned them down, Bentley has given us 2 years and probably deserves a chance at higher level but im disappointed...
  19. The Future Looks Bright.

    No, not the new stadium, forget about all that nonsense. SUFC under-15s not only won the tournament and trophy in Berlin in Germany, but won all seven matches, and without conceding a single goal. They beat Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 in the final. Absolutely superb from the young lads...

    End of season contract situation

    After Wednesday nights game, me and my mates were discussing the contract situations of many players amidst all this uncertainty over PB. I said it would be likely that he would take a few with him and thought it was a shame, as if the squad could be held together for another year they could...
