  1. Big Bad Barry Corr

    Now on 48 goals for Southend, from 93 starts. That puts him in our top 20 strikers in terms of goals. A fantastic achievement given his injuries and periods out. Also fantastic given he's a huge part of our build up play and defensive duties too...
  2. A very slight dose of reality - If i've done my maths right!

    With York surprisingly now level on points with us, in 7th with a +8 goal difference compared to their +6, anything less than a win against Bristol Rovers on Friday (and hoping York lose against Pompey at Fratton Park on saturday) would be a disaster. This winless run needs to come to an end...

  4. Question Could Barry Corr be the answer?

    I remember back last season when Cresswell got sent off and Barry Corr was moved to Centre Back, so many people on here saying how well he played and how he won everything in the air.I was thinking could he be the answer to our obvious weakness in the central defensive positions.It seems clear...

    Terra ferma

    I don't know whether I'm alone here but on reflection this morning I do think that there is a need, not for optimism or pesimism, but for a good dose of realism. First of all, congratulations to the Luggy and the squad, for the preparation of our play-off campaign. In a matter of weeks we...

    Family Holidays.

    Ladies and Gents. Just starting to work on our family plans for a summer holiday. I need to start thinking about this as my son turns two in mid July and so it makes sense to get back before then rather than pay two kids prices. I have been a bit surprised by the costs and options on offer at...

I have had 2000 "Sawyer is our leader" t-shirts made for the event (plus a "Sawyer is our leader XXXL ponch for Fatso so he dosent feel...

    Question Would you want Southend to become a football super power.

    I was watching TV in bed last night with the Mrs when the BBC did a news article on Fulhams pending cup final tonight. Now I personally seem to be in a minority of one and its no doubt because I am jealous but I dont like Fulham. As a kid they were a total nothing side and we seemed to beat...

    Paddy and Mick were walking down a street in London . Paddy happens to look in one of the shop windows and sees a sign that catches his eye. The sign said: "Suits £5.00 each, Shirts £2.00 each, trousers £2.50 per pair". Paddy says to his pal, "Mick, Look! We could buy a whole lot...

    Should I reply to a txt from an ex

    Last Saturday, I'm laying in bed with Mrs Chadded, and my fone gets a txt. I pick it up, and it's from my ex of two years ago. There wasn't exactly much chance or point of hiding it, it came up on my phone as Ex+******, and my mrs knows who this person is. Mrs Chadded's exact response when the...
