    The return of Deegan

    So the viking is back! I am really intrigued to see how our midfield cope with him or how he copes with ours. Our midfielders obviously know him will and I wonder how they perceive him. Will they respect him, be scared of him or walk all over him? One things for sure they would of seen the...

    Lucky dip!

    To celebrate (commiserate?) my arrival at the big 70, the wife and I decided to return to see the family towards the end of the year. Originally, I found a cheap flight out of Lourdes for the 15th November and was warming to the idea of seeing our quick return game against the Bantams. That...

    Question Bury v Southend : Last Season

    Probably just me, but I never realized until the other night that our game at Bury last season resulted in them being deducted 3 points for fielding an ineligible player and we jumped above them in the league to finish 14th. Question is, why didn't we get the three points!?

    Apprentice 2016 - draw and discussion thread.

    Apprentice 2016 This years runners and riders have been revealed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/profiles/5NJRj7JhcnNp5WKzq12nn8y/meet-the-candidates Is there going to be the usual Sweepstake this year? I actually made the final 2 in 2014 but Sugs didn't go for Bianca and her tights, last...

    Jakub Sokolik

    When Jakub Sokolik was first with us on loan I thought he was a real prospect, and I would have loved to have him permanently with Southend. That didn't happen and from then on his career development has been on hold it seems, for a variety of reasons. Now he is finally back with us as a real...
  8. Question Starting XI of Players We Didn't Sign?

    It seems there's been so many 'in talks with' headlines and more publicly named players than I can ever remember as a Southend fan. It may be too soon but I thought I'd do it anyway for a bit of fun. Can we make a starting XI of players we didn't sign? We're good for ST's, not so good for LB's...

    Pre-Match Thread Bolton Wanderers v Southend United

    Time to give Saturday's game it's own thread I think. Last night's result will possibly mean that there are changes made to the starting eleven, or not, knowing PB. So I'm going for this: Smith White Sokolik Ferdinand Thompson Coker Lenny Atkinson Mooney Cox McLaughlin No particular formation...

    Joe Hart to have Torino medical before loan move

    So, discarded by Man City and a less than successful Euro 2016 campaign can sometimes be costly it seems. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/37216083 I'm sure Torino are a good side, they sit 7th currently in Serie A, but maybe he could have done better? I'm very surprised that another Prem...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Bristol Rovers

    Would have taken that at the start of the afternoon. Yet another set piece conceded which is worrying and we really didn't threaten going forwards so had a bit of luck to get the penalty and Cox did well to convert. Tactics frustrating, Brown's decisions were a little questionable for me, the...

    Be kind, give the chap carrying the ball out tomorrow a cheer

    Long story, not wholly sure why yet, no I didn't pay for the privilege (I was asked to do it), none of that "Who are yer" stuff please.:smile: A choice of top, which one to wear? Retro Colly shirt, the 2006 centenary one or last years? Choices choices :cool: Maybe I can flog my book to the...

    Long story, power cuts and a water dowser.

    If I had posted this when it started, it may have had the legs to match MK's fridge post. So i'll keep it short but you may get bored. Earlier this year, probably February time, I saw some damp patches on the left side outside wall of my house. Thought they would dry up but they didn't. We...

    Phil Brown to other jobs - Rumours and Gossip

    I've never heard such disrespect for the club. You want either the Sunderland job or to be in the England set up, so disrespectful. 2 years ago Lincoln City didn't want you ! Your aspirations cost us last year and is now starting even before the season begins. How can you expect player loyalty...

    Coker's future?

    So what do think is going to happen with Coker's future? Chris Phillips stating on twitter yesterday that Brown had plenty to say about it, regarding Reading, but he didn't state what Brown said. Personally, I think it would be a huge blow to lose him, I think it's a lot harder finding a good...

    Didn't figure in Brentford's 22 man squad last night (they lost to Boreham Wood 2-1)
  17. Ins, outs and didn't want to comes

    To keep things simple could you help Zoners by posting who has arrived, who has left and who have we been trying to sign but failed. The transfer news gets lost in the transfer thread so I will start. IN OUT Daniel Bentley to Brentford DIDN'T SIGN
  18. Cockney Urchins

    I have long advocated taking on reserves/kids from London clubs, usually a decent standard, no danger of homesickness and it didn't do us any harm with the likes of Powell, Collymore etc. Therefore it irks me a tad when the cream of West Ham's yoof are disappearing to outposts such as Bradford...
  19. I have two tickets for the final of Euro 2016

    I have two tickets for the final of Euro 2016, but I didn't realise it will be on the same day as my wedding, so I can't go... If you are interested and want to go instead of me... It's at St Mary's church Prittlewell, and the girl is called Sarah.
