  1. Tommy2holes

    Where is our marquee signing...

    No cox again last night. This is the player that Phil Brown said was our marquee signing and player that was a coup for the club . Undoubtedly one of if not the highest earner at the club. Nowhere to be seen again. Is this another mismanagement of a talented player or his he simply injured...
  2. Orient Transfer Policy

    It goes without saying that the Simpson deal is completely dead, there's virtually no point in even trying to sign him in January as he'll be eligible to sign a free transfer pre-contract agreement with someone else and will therefore have a ton of attractive options for 2017/18. What I find...

    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?
  4. Why isn't PB liked by other supporters?

    This one baffles me. The guy is a tactician, motivator, loyal to his players, takes defeat on his (own) chin, passionate about the club, I really could go on. What most fans don't see outside of our club, he also does a lot for charity, always makes sure, either he or the players attend...
  5. Bikers heading to Southend

    The 17th annual Southend biker Shakedown will depart from The Ace Cafe Stonebridge, in north-west London, at 10.30am. The fundraiser will see hundreds of bikers arrive at Southend seafront for a family-focused day out. Now the trouble with this is that it raises thousands for mainly childrens...
  6. Northampton game from a Cobblers perspective

    Morning Southend fans, Thought I would come on here again and provide a little insight into our likely starting team for Saturday and our season so far. I appreciate still 5 days to go but work is rather dull! First things first. Gary Deegan, it appears he has done ok for you, this alone has...
  7. Question Anyone concerned?

    With the news that a number of players have been arrested over match fixing allegations, do you worry just how serious this problem might get? As we have witnessed in the Yewtree witch hunt, once the authorities have no option but to investigate, more and more of the iceberg begins to surface...
  8. Napster

    Phil Brown = Rafa Benitez

    I've noticed a few commonalities between the two: 1) Revered at old club (Liverpool/Hull) 2) Not instantly liked at current club 3) Probably hired to get best out of highest wage-earner (Torres/Eastwood), who weren't signed by manager but by chairman 4) Healthy glow to visage/sometime facial...
  9. Winkle

    Question Frederick Eastwood?

    Does anyone know any info as regards to Mr Eastwoods availability this summer? As Coventry got relegated and he is quite a big earner, do you think they will look to move him on(Free) maybe, just all seems a bit quiet!
  10. Sturrock Update on Blues player

    Thoughts from PS: Francis: Highest earner, wanted him to stay, would like to thank him for services. Budget was vital to enable PS to bring in quantity of players. Still training with us for fitness until he gets a move. Not got bitter about the situation, everyone admires his attitude...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-0 Yeovil Town

    Southend United 0 Yeovil Town 0 Well, what a waste of an afternoon that was. Nathan Jones gave us more entertainment than anything that actually happened on the pitch. The players have given up the fight it seems on that showing, so League Two will surely follow. Some questionable tactics again...
  12. Insider Knowledge

    Just had an interesting chat with someone who is on Southends wage bill and someone who many people on this board know, what he said was, Dan Harding: Southend have put their terms of £2000 week deal on table Harding wants £3500, when on loan from Ipswich they paid half of Hardings wages (he...
  13. So Why the Worry?

    I often struggle to comprehend views of football fans in general. The problem is we are all better managers than any current manager in the world when we make comments with hindsight. I think if we as fans are willing to accept Bailey has gone because he wanted out then we have to accept that...
  14. Tommy2holes

    The official lets hear a statement from Ron Martin thread.

    I am sick of all this not knowing wether tilly has been totally inept in this years transfer market or wether the club are just totally tight as we are led to believe. It seems Ron Martin is all for making statements when new grounds are given the go ahead and when there is something positive...
  15. Adam Barrett - Contract

    No, he hasn't gone anywhere. Does anyone else think that the rejection of these contracts has anything to do with Barrett's new deal? 4 and a half years so substantial security so very rare in the lower leagues, on what i gather to be a very good wage. I would argue that Barrett although an...
  16. Wage Update

    How badly have you been hit? I've gone from 145k to 183k. Not too bad. Granville is my top earner on 45k a week, so I'm thinking once he pops to sensational I should stop his training to control that wage a bit. The update gives me the chance to see how close Cronin and new signing Healy are...
  17. This Makes for Interesting Reading...

    The 50 Highest Earning Footballers at the moment. A few points, notice the matching wage of Terry/Lampard... those types of "I have to be joint top earner" deals make me sick... and, Darren Bent? £95k? I want his agent.
  18. Streaky

    Peter Clarke...

    I'm interested in gageing some opinions on Peter Clarke. He seems to be a favorite for many but for me he is a poor mans AB who should be dropped for Richards. I think Clarke is becoming a bit of a liability who is costing us goals and games. I have started to collect a list of positives and...

  20. Should my mate move to Norway?

    My mate Steve's been working in Magaluf this summer as a PR/bar work. Whilst out there he fell for a Norwegian bird and apparantly spent all his spare time with her during her stay. This bird has her own house paid for by the government. Apparantly she had a operation which went wrong when...
