    Official Match Thread Wycombe V Southend United

    TEAM: Bentley; White, Coker, Prosser, Thompson; Clifford, Straker, Atkinson, Leonard; Corr, Eastwood. SUBS: Smith, Timlin, Reid, Payne, Williams, Auger, Hurst. Cowan out and Williams, Auger and Payne on the bench. Thoughts on the match? I think we can sneak a result. Maybe a 2-1 or a 1-0...
  2. Official Match Thread Chesterfield vs Southend United

    BLUES XI: Bentley; White, Thompson, Prosser, Coker; Atkinson, Clifford, Leonard, Straker; Eastwood, Corr. SUBS: Smith, Banton, Hurst, Timlin, Reid, Cowan, Payne. Same team, but Clifford replaces injured Laird. Banton is a youth defender as Phillips isn't fit enough.

    Welcome back Freddy !

    I've always been behind Freddy and his return and today I think we saw the return of Eastwood as a good player for us, as opposed to a shadow of his older self. He wont ever get back to the player he was in 2004/2005 but then to be good in this league he doesnt have to. There has been a...

    Breaking News Corr's Red Card Appealed And Now Overturned

    Confirmed by the official twitter account earlier. Should find out tomorrow afternoon.

    Question Should we appeal Barry Corr's red card?

    Having just seen the footage on Blues Player, it seems exceptionally harsh on BBBC to get a straight red for what was effectively a little tussle. I've watched it a good 4 or 5 times and appear to have missed the supposed 'kicking out' from Corr, but he's still now facing a 3 game ban. Should we...

    Official Match Thread Hartlepool vs Southend United at Victoria Park

    The team line up is: Bentley, White, Prosser, Phillips, Coker, Atkinson, Laird, Leonard, Straker, Corr, Eastwood. Same as the Plymouth game.
  8. Squad Age

    By my thinking we may have the youngest squad (for us) for many years and certainly amongst the lowest in the league; especially after Barks departure. Who, other than Smithy is over 30? And who is our longest signed player? my guess would be either Barry Corr or Mark Phillips as I can't think...
  9. Southend vs Plymouth Sky Sports Highlights.

    Apparently our new signing Barry Corr scored the only goal of the game on his debut. He then celebrated with his new team mates! Nice to know sky are on the ball! http://www1.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/competitions/league-two/8854736/southend-1-0-plymouth
  10. Squad comparison to this time last year

    A week or two ago I was really concerned and was one of the doomsday posters. It really looked like we would struggle to get anyone of note in. A week later and a quick comparison to around this time last year (21-08-2012) and I feel we measure up ok. Of course there where quite a few changes...

  12. Brownisms

    I feel like these deserve their own thread. So far we've had: Anthony Straker - likened to Gareth Bale Barry Corr - a League Two Andy Carroll Daniel Bentley - without putting too much pressure on, will play for England Any more for any more?
  13. Expectations too low?

    In the Plymouth thread somebody said that we will be near the bottom of the table. Personally, although we are having issues signing players feel our squad is more than capable of reaching play offs! First of all we have a fit Barry corr who I feel will be instrumental to our success, alongside...
  14. Hi my name's Harry

    Hello everyone my name's Harry and i have been a southend fan for 3 years all thanks to my friends dad I'm 18 years old and my favorite player is Sean Clohessy but as he is almost certain to leave, my favorite Southend player is Barry Corr. I really enjoy going to watch Southend play.
  15. Ref Watch ......... Plymouth (H)

    It really is difficult to think of a less imaginative and inspiring appointment to start the new season with ! The referee for Saturday is the very same one who did the final game of last season bringing the curtain down on what was probably the worst half a season of home football ever at...

    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...
  17. Official Match Thread vs Wet Spammers XI

    First XI: Bentley, Auger, Bennett, Clifford, Thompson, Barker, Eastwood, Timlin, Cowan, Corr, Payne. Subs: Edwards, Chambers, Njie, Pinnock, Williams, Banton. Adam Thompson from Watford is a defender on trial - possible loanee?
  18. Team for first game of the season?

    What would your team be for the first game of the season? I would go for: Bentley White Phillips Prosser Coker Leonard Laird Atkinson Straker Eastwood Corr
