    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-1 Rochdale

    Brilliant ending on a very frustrating afternoon. Both teams had slow starts but we grew into it and had quite a few chances. Should have been out of sight by half-time and as has become normal we let it go a bit second half. We looked tired later on and think their three changes against our...

    Fouls and Bookings

    It seems to be that we nearly always commit less fouls than the opposition, but end up with at least the same number of yellow cards as them. Am I being paranoid, or am I right? Or do we go for quality, not quantity when it comes to fouling?

    Question Persistent Fouling

    I know this is going back three matches now, but I remember during the Bury game that Bury were continuously fouling and in the end the ref booked one of their players. But, they carried on, and the ref did nothing. The question I have is really for the referees out there. When should the ref...

    Nicky Bailey

    Overrated, mouthy, diving, fouling, whining, little ginger gobs***e. That is all. :)
  5. Lady Luck limps back into Liverpool

    Liverpool haven’t exactly had the best of luck this season. Karma paid it back with a vengeance tonight as troubled Merseyside club recorded a precious win against a Spurs side battling with them for that coveted 4th place finish. The game started at a tentative pace, with Spurs looking to make...
  6. Most fouls ?

    one way that Charlton broke up our play today was by fouling us 20 times (to our 10) - is it always the case that we are fouled more than the op[position ?

    The Never Everton Story

    And so ends a miserable weekend for the more prosperous end of the Premier League. Wigan's narrow victory over a lacklustre Everton at the JJB Stadium meant that, along with every member of the big four failing to score, every team in the top ten failed to win. The victory drags Steve Bruce's...

    Wiggy's ratings last night!

    Flavs 7 thought he looked much more confident and lively, couple of good saves as well Mulgrew 5 come back in 3 years, good at times, liability others Barratt 6 done well enough, missed a sitter Clarke 6 looked class at times, not so good others Francis 6 couple of errors, need his attacking...

    Youth Team Update

    Unfortunately, Southend United's Under-18 side lost 2-0 at home to Luton Town at Boots & Laces this morning, conceding in the 42nd and 88th minutes. A full report should be available on the Shrimpers Trust website and the club's official website over the next 36 hours or so. Johnny Herd sat out...
  10. Steve Bennett

    I hate it when excuses are made for a team,especially after losing 3-0, but we were more than equal to Col******r today and was done over by inadequate refereeing. We matched them and it could have gone either way before the sendings off. I was thinking in the first half how poor the ref was...
  11. Maher missed?.....

    Just wondered what everyone thought of our perfprmance yesterday without superkev? There are a very large amount of shrimpers who feel that he is some sort of talisman (we know he is crap but we are rubbish without him brigade). Well, I for one thought we looked more balanced in midfield...
  12. Leon Cort

    Can't see that this has been posted before, but apologies if it has. Did anyone else notice that was Leon's first booking of the season.  It's just a shame that it was a result of Sabin's constant cheating rather than Leon actually fouling anyone.  I know he's not had the best of seasons & has...
