  2. Own Goals

    I dont believe it to be fair jostice to a player whe has a shot on goal and a defender or anyone sticks out a foot to try to prevent that shot from scoring and it ricochets off and into the net , i believe the goal should be credited to the person taking the shot, after all said and done the...

  7. The media.

    Be honest, Most of us only know stuff from the media...social,TV or tabloids. How can anyone know what we are being fed is actually true?..take Murdoch if he wants to tell the world his version of events then his outlets will tell us what he thinks..sadly many believe the stories hook line and...

    A goal poacher in January

    Just a thought, but again last night highlighted our lack of a goal scoring threat or more like a poacher. We again played some decent football and again Cox and Ranger linked up well as did Wordsworth and the midfield. But at the moment very much like Walsall and Swindon, both games could have...

    Southends highest ever earner

    There is a joker on the facebook page saying Cox is on 8k a week. I dont think we have ever paid that much in the 30 years I have been watching. Any suggestions on who our highest paid player was? Marsh?

    Run Fat Boy Run - 'Running'.

    Question Who's going to be better - jack or jack ?

    3 Years ago i watched a few games in which both Jack Payne and Jack Bridge were playing. I said to mates at the time the better player was Bridge. I likened him to Adam Lallana and bet them that in 5 years time Bridge would be playing at a higher standard of football than Payne. Now my...
