    How many others out there doing a "Likely Lads" on Saturday

    I unfortunately can't make the game Saturday as I was already committed to photographing a wedding. Didn't bother asking the couple if they might consider changing the day........ I'm therefore going to be doing a "Likely Lads". For the younger members out there, this is trying to avoid the...

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...

    Bit of legal advice on wills needed

    Just a quickie if there are any legal bods out there. My Dad (in his late 70's) has just found out that his brother and his wife died a couple of months ago down in Devon. For some reason none of my dads family were advised, even though his brother was in hospital for 3 weeks before passing...
  4. New league structures?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/27289819 Not sure about this. A regional league? Didn't we have this 50 years ago, on the other hand it'll mean more local derbies. However the B team bit bugs me? Don't the FA realise there is a whole 40+ clubs outside of the top 2 leagues with their own...

    League Two "team of the season"

    No Southend representatives. Whilst the voting for this is always highly flawed, I'm still astonished to find that there are at least two midfielders better than Ryan Leonard in this division. I wonder where they were hiding when they played us? Surprised Bentley didn't make it either after...

    Next Man U Manager

    Paddys have got Blanc at 33's. Worth a couple of quid. I didn't fancy their offer of Howard Webb at 500/1.

    Cauley Woodrow

    Features in this month's FourFourTwo with a letter describing him as one to watch and a talent for the future with the writer saying he scored in a 5-1 rout against his team and "was everywhere". Clearly he saw something we didn't, though it's not that difficult to look good in a 5-1 win.

    Question What if?............

    Just curious, but do I remember a rumour from the start of the season, that if we didn't get promoted this season Brown would go? If so what are the implications?

    Question Why leave it so late to bring on subs?

    I have been a big supporter of Phil Brown since he came here but today was the first time that I felt the reason we didnt win was down to poor tactics. Sorry but today was a must win, as are all games from now if we are to even make the play offs, so why leave it until 85 minutes before bringing...
  13. Pre-Match Thread v Wycombe

    Well I guess the return of the wind and rain will not help our 'leg weary' side right now. We desperately need a win tomorrow and despite the good football we have played on many occasions this season , I would take a scrappy , last minute own goal right now. Team selection will be interesting...

    Steve (Ldnfatso) and the Prediction League

    I'm sure you will have seen in the chit-chat forum the tragic news about Steve (Ldnfatso). I am totally devastated by the news and trying to come to terms with it. Steve was a close friend, we used to sit together in the South Upper, attended numerous away games by coach, train and car, used...

    PL Table No. 10 Southend PL points and Table fo r the 8th Febraury 2014

    THIS IS THE TABLE FOR SOUTHEND PREDICTION LEAGUE (Southend score and scorers only) THE MAIN PREDICTION LEAGUE WILL FOLLOW NOT one of us thought we would loose today and that's why we didn't get any points, and only three predicted Leonard to score so only six points gained this week as...
  18. If allowed

    If we are in a position to bring in a loan player or two .Phil brown must bolster the central defence .Philips really is a great risk to our promotion push .He is to slow and I feel he will cost us dear if he continues in the poor form he is showing .I read that the Embargo was due to be lifted...
