    How much can we read into contract lengths?

    I was really interested to hear Phillips say he was on a 2 year deal. I thought he would be our third centre-half, but now I'm not so sure. Paul Sturrock needed to assemble a squad quickly, so he may have had to compromise on quality in order to get bodies in. There appear to have been lots of...

    Training today!

    Three keepers put through there paces, Morris, Evans and Clark Masters. By far the best was Masters, excellent reflexes, handling, made the other two look like amateurs. On the shooting front far more accurate than last year all of them however the one that stood out a mile was Blair Sturrock...

    Eastbourne Views

    Got my first pre-season for a few years under my belt today. Eastbourne is only 45 mins or so from home so I made the trip along with my daughter. My first thoughts were I was amazed by big the squad were in terms of height. There are some decent sized players out there which I am guessing must...

    Pre-Match Thread Salisbury City v Southend United

    Anyone making the trek tonight then? If you are, some live updates for the Zone would be appreciated. So, with the squad finally shaping up to something resembling a proper one, will Luggy be starting to get an idea of his starting 11 for Stockport? Any whispers of more triallists tonight...
  5. Breaking News Evans Interview

    Really honest interview with Evans on Player. Says that any player out of contract at the moment would 'jump at the chance' to join any league club in the current climate, so it didnt take him long to decide. No choice on the No.1 jersey yet - Sturrock wants genuine competition between the...
  6. Breaking News Confirmation of Coughlan and Evans!

    Today's signings

    Coughlan and Rhys Evans have signed pre-contract deals today. Just a matter of the stories being put up on the OS. Sturrock is looking to sign 'another young lad' in the next day or two but no name revealed.

    Shrimpers Fans Past

    Just thought it might be nice to have a thread to talk about some of the special people who followed Southend who have now sadly departed this world. Bob Evans - RIP I was still quite young when Bob died, I remember first talking to him in a toilet in Oxford he was so passionate about Southend...

  13. Ref Watch ..... Millwall away

    Tonight's referee will be Karl Evans from Manchester. He is in his third season and has refereed Southend twice before - away at Bristol Rovers last season (just one yellow there) and away at Swindon for Tilly's 300th match (three yellows for us). So not a good record, results-wise. He is a...

    Leeds Live The Dream

    DID LEEDS GET LUCKY? Absolutely not. This was a fully deserved win by a team who paid for their victory in blood and in sweat and in tears. Leeds United may have spent the last two and a half years in the third flight of English football, but if this result is anything to go by, they're on...
  15. what you want to happen in january (realistlic)

  16. The Scot Who Cried Wolf

    Sir Alex Ferguson, even more than he likes red wine, likes to moan about referee's. He does it so often now that many just ignore him, like the old relative at christmas who's hell bent on retelling his childhood. Well, Ferguson might actually have a point with his ranting this evening... It's...
  17. What Becomes of the Broke and Shafted

    Someone great once said that Football isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more than that. Which would explain the pain felt by those when their football club is ripped away from them. As a Southend United supporter, I've had the good grace of never witnessing non-league football and...

    Who Should Replace Rafa?

    It's 6pm on Sunday evening in Merseyside. The last supporter trudges out of the Anfield turnstiles, his head hung low. Red scarves are left strewn amongst the litter in the aisles of the Kop. Somewhere outside you can hear the gleeful chorus of 'Glory, Glory Man United'. Liverpool have been...

    MILLWALL nothing changes.

    A little bit of history repeating itself perhaps? Div 3(S) No. 10 Saturday 6th October 1923 SOUTHEND UNITED 0-0 MILLWALL Millwall came to the Kursaal with very negative hard aggressive tactics, trying to spoil the game and they succeeded in so far as they gained a point, but in the 1920s...
