  1. Question Players under contract. Whom has concerns???

    So far I believe we have 10 players under contract of which 5 of them were regulars in our starting eleven Bentley Coker Bolger Leonard and Worrall, the other 5 are Payne Smith Weston Hurst and Prosser the others 5 White Thompson Timlin Atkinson and Deegan have had contracts offered, but as...
  2. Breaking News Corr has signed for Cambridge United

    Just been tweeted by BBC Essex! That's a real shame :thumbdown:
  3. Latest Rumours Corr attracting interest

    Breaking News Eight players offered deal - one arrested

    https://twitter.com/CJPhillips1982/status/603320835185709056 So, this will be interesting.
  5. New Strike-Force???

    Entering League 1, i would imagine Mr Brown is looking for a new strike force asap, there are plenty of names about with higher League experience who might be willing to come to Roots Hall. Barry Corr, I'm of the opinion that as much as his work rate is good, his technical ability ain't League...

    Myles Weston

    Well I never thought that I would start a thread on Weston, but I wanted to highlight his role in yesterday's triumph. Thirty seconds from the end of additional time (and surely there should have been five or six minutes not just two) he embarks on a swift run, outpacing the defenders, beats one...
  7. Have some respect for Barry Corr

    Absolutely disgusted to see some of the comments about Corr following yesterday's performance. Some of our so called "fans" should be ashamed of themselves. To describe his performance as one moron did as "toilet" is disgraceful. Some FACTS about yesterday and the season as a whole; 1/ Corr's...
  8. So who would have been 9 and 10 penalty takers? Where was Corr, but who cares....

    Can't believe Bolger took a penalty before Corr..would Bentley have stepped up before Corr....

    101 Reasons We'll Win!

    Can we come up with 101 reasons that we'll win? Serious or daft, all welcome! I'll kick off with a few serious ones.... 1) After losing 2 years ago Corr, Prosser, Hurst & Brown will extra motivated. 2) After missing out 2 years ago, Timlin, Leonard & Bentley will be bang up for it. 3) Adam...

    Phil Brown - Tactically spot on tonight

    He got it spot on tonight. I would probably have brought Weston on a little earlier but he got the subs right. Stevenage were knackered, Weston destroyed them. Good team shape as well, get the ball to Corr and hold it up. Superb stuff Phil.
  11. Barry Corr

    Take a bow. Missed a good chance, missed a pen, but his head never dropped - worked his absolute nuts off. Stevenage couldn't handle him and his build up and support play was immense. Piggot was great too. What a man. I'd lose my **** if he scores at Wembley. Fair play for letting Timlin take...
  12. Question Yellow cards

    Do they get carried over to the second leg i.e. If Corr gets booked again he would miss the final?
  13. Line Up for second leg

    Maybe I'm getting carried away here ; but I strongly feel that this line up for the second leg would destroy them (they simply cannot run/pass through teams); Bentley White Bolger Barrett Coker Weston Timlin (if fit) Payne Worrall Pigot Corr
  14. 442

    Let's hope Phil Brown doesn't make the same mistake as at Morecambe. Barry Corr playing as the one up front doesn't work for the players we have at the club. We tried that system and went on our poor run, it didn't work, and Barry Corr couldn't score as he was easily marked and didn't get in the...

    Congratulation to Big Bad Barry Corr

    On winning the Junior Blues Player of the Year Award, in what was our biggest ever vote!
  16. Ref Watch ...... Luton H

    Man in charge at Roots Hall on Saturday is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 11th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his fifteenth Southend match in charge. Twelve of...
  17. Score & attendance predictions for luton!!

    I'll go 3-1 blues corr 2 & timlin.attendence 10, 146.
  18. Pre-Match Thread Bury vs Southend United

    Nervous already. We need to play our best 11. That means Corr and maybe Worrall.

    Pre-Match Thread Exeter City v Southend United

    So, it's time to move on to the next bundle of fun in this season's promotion stakes. Provided White is fit I'm going for Corr being re-instated along side Cassidy, other than that no change to last night's starting eleven. I did wonder about Lenny in for Deegan, but it would be very harsh...
  20. Ref Watch ...... Newport H

    Fingers crossed for a better referee than Saturday's. Tomorrow's referee has achieved something that no other referee in the world has managed - he has presided over a Southend win against Morecambe ! The man in charge is Rob Lewis, from Shrewsbury. This is the fifth season of his second spell...
