    Is Evans worse than Flavs for crosses?

    ....i think so, Saturday confirms it. Watching the goals on t.v and every week at home can never see him coming off that goal line. Not a crusade to get Morris in but quite honestly think he is poor with kicking, shot stopping generally as a lot goes accross him and obviously the aerial stuff...

    England's Heaven XI

    In light of this lovely quote from Swiss Tony on the Trevor Bailey thread: "R I P Trevor,steady the ship and steer home the the good ship Englands heaven X1,God bless." Who would make your England XI, based solely on those no longer with us? With the likes of Gooch, Gower, Dexter, Botham...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Oxford

    So deadline passed quietly at The Hall. I think most were just happy to hold on to our key assets to be honest. Oxford are the visitors tonight and they are on a decent run of form as well. Since we beat them 2-0 at the Kassam on NY Day, they have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 6...

    Who's the best keeper?

    Is Morris really better than Evans? Not a lot in it, I think personally. Don't know why i've raised this now though.

    Official Match Thread Barnet vs Southend

    Starting XI: Evans, Clohessy, Barker, Coughlan, Gilbert, Ferdinand, Easton, Grant, Hall, Sturrock, Mohsni.
  8. sounds like players have noticed it

    a passage from craig eastons blog I also felt for Rhys Evans as he was gutted about the way he conceded the first goal, especially after not putting a foot wrong and making a couple of decent saves against Oxford. He also made a couple of important stops later in the game which is testament to...

    Lee Turners dismissal has probably cost us......

    another 3 points, well done Ron. The most dedicated g/k coach in the league was let go, now our keepers are going out cold. Two blatant errors by Evans today which with Lee's warm up routines may have been prevented. Why Morris wasn't playing though was a mystery as he didn't look very injured...

    Memory Lane Jimmy Evans v Peter Taylor 2-6

    Two internationals go to head to hear, Welsh international Jimmy Evans (the first player to be capped at Southend?) and Peter Taylor who went onto play for England.
  13. Ref Watch ........ Hereford away

    Well, there can't be a team in the land we have a better recent record against than Hereford. Seven straight League wins, the last six (including three away matches) without conceding a goal. Can the shambolic affairs of the summer mean that we can no longer rely on beating even Hereford...

    Morris or Evans for Saturday?

    Simple enough question, personally I thought it was harsh to drop Evans after his performance in the JPT and expected him to play last weekend. Would it have made a difference? Well, who knows, but I know there has been criticism of Morris over some of the goals conceded from the start of the...

    Memory Lane Mel Slack v Jimmy Evans 1:11 - poll added

    Am looking forward to hearing Napster's memories as 1920's full-back Jimmy Evans takes on 1970's full-back (I think) Mel Slack.

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Bristol City

    Well here we are again. Tonight is the second game of the season and for once we dont face cheltenham town, but we do face a decent team in bristol city. City for those who dont know ply there trade in the championsip and are tipped by some to be a dark horse in the race for the holy grail...
