  2. players coming and going

Now before you all shout me down is it just possible that Brown and penny has a list of players who they might be able to call...

    Tomlin and Pre-Contracts - A myth according to the Football League

    We have been told by people on here that the likes of Tomlin has signed pre-contract with Gillingham months ago. I have raised this with the Football League as it wasnt clear whether a pre-contract can be signed 6 months or a month before the contract expires. The answer is below: So there...
  4. contracts

    What time line is there for players either signing a new contract .Or quiting the club . And when can we sign new players ahead of next season . I have seen bits and bobs on new players coming into the club .But nothing seems to be said on the main site on either players leaving or coming in .

    Michael Timlin

    Good to see him walking around with no crutches, no plaster cast and smiling yesterday. Really hope that he is one of the out of contracts that is re-signed.

    What would they be worth now?

    Just curious as to what people feel our Championship side would be worth now. Seeing players such as Jordan Rhodes moving for a potential £8m, Nicky Maynard at a quite modest £3m and the same with Leon best, Matt Mills, Mackail-Smith, Beckford, Nugent etc. not to mention Leicester spending £1m...

    Question Kalala and Gilbert

    Am I right in thinking that the contracts for these two players expired at the end of June? There has been no announcement on the official site (but that is not unusual) so are we to presume that they are no longer on our books?

    Has the Wee Birdie been watching and listening.

    Has he noticed that the two teams that pass the ball the best are in the final of the Euro's. Did he see that the most competent passing teams and those that held possession for the longest in league 2 last season were the 3 promoted. Did he listen when loyal supporters told him to change the...
  14. The Reasons Why?

    A wee birdie told me to explain why certain players not signed up yet. Our new chief exec and the gaffer have been on holiday and the physio is also sunning himself. Plus some of his targets are holidaying and negotiating over the phone. Which means one or two of the main ingredients for players...
  15. Anyone know why there's lack of info on official club site?

    Hope this is okay for my first thread. It has been quite obvious since the unfortunate play-off defeat that there has been a lack of updated news regarding the first team on the Club's official site. Without the risk of being accused of fishing the last time there were such delays it led to...

    Football Manager 2012 - SUFC players out of contract

    Just seeing if anyone else is having the same problem with me when playing as southend. Im top of the league and with 3 months to go before the end of the season a lot of my main players like granty, dicko, JJ , Pablo counuago and hall amongst others, are out of contract at the end of the season...
  18. Mr Yorkshire blue

    Why am I being negative. I believe if we hold onto our existing players along with several additions we might just find ourselves back in the Championship inside 3 years. But its a 3 year plan.# And the contracts of Kane and Hall expire in 18 months so they'll only be here halfway through the...
  19. Slight concern

    Hi Guys. First of all this effort is not designed to provocate nor put anyone down. My concern is there has been no talk of new offers being made for Barker, Mohsni and Grant when there current deals expire at the end of this season. Also the contracts of Hall, Ferdinand amongst others are up...

    Breaks my hearts to have to post this in 'Ex-Shrimpers'.... Now the Tilson-era is over, what do you consider to be his greatest achievement at Southend United Football Club?
