    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Bristol Rovers

    Last game of the season, it seems like only yesterday that we were getting excited for the start of this one. Where does time go? Anyway, to business. After 3 wins on the trot we entertain Bristol rovers at Roots Hall. We got stuffed 3-0 at their gaff in December so it might be fitting if we...
  5. How important is the first goal.

    You may well be surprised how much the first goal has influenced our results this season. We have now ended the bizarre run of not scoring in the second half but did you know but we have not gained single point away from home if the opposition has scored first.....11 games, 9 of which we didn't...

    Stand up for Choice

    Official Match Thread Bradford City v Southend United

    So here we are the ninth and this season’s final away game of Chris Powell's return and time in charge at the Mighty Shrimpers against Bradford City. It is now time for ALL of us to get behind him and the team whether you are at Northern Commercials Stadium, listening on the radio, or watching...
  11. Ref Watch ..... Bradford City (A)

    As we head northwards for a fixture which has produced far more than its share of red cards in the recent past, tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, ex Wing Commander Trevor Kettle who used to work for the RAF and Ministry of Defence (worrying thought...
  12. Chris Powell on "The Coaches' Voice" and the victory over Wigan

    Came across this site and a video ( called a Masterclass) in which Chris describes plotting the defeat of Wigan in what was his third game. Interesting stuff and Chris talks with clarity about tactics both with and without the ball.

    Question Season 2015-16

    Weren't we awarded the points against Bury despite losing the last game of the 2015-16 season there. Can't find any league tables that reflect this though?

    2018 summer transfer thread

    Couldn't see one started yet so thought we could start discussion, any players you'd like us to look at or ship out? I know from a source close to Powell that he would like to ship a few out, which I assume means quite a few in too. I'll chuck a name out there: Manny Duku, 37 goals in 42...

    The youths

    Interesting - and encouraging - to see Miles Mitchell-Nelson and Lewis Gard on the bench. I believe Mitchell-Nelson is a centre-half and Gard a midfielder. This is an important time of the year for the youngsters with contract decisions being made and I expect this means these two will be/have...
