    Charlton views on Harry Lennon

    A lot on here don't like Lennon but he is a very capable third tier centre half with physical presence. Yes Chris Powell would have worked with him. Spent time on loan @ Gillingham a few years ago ... Was a rock there and they wanted to build a team round him, we had injuries in the...
  2. Shrimpers are Magic

  11. Ref Watch .... Colchester H

    We are, of course, ahead in League (and other) results against Colchester over the years, but it is still more than 10 years since Shaun Goater's two goals helped us to our last home victory over them (a young John White came on as substitute for them). The referee for this match, which I think...

    Current line up and equivalent

    Thought it was interesting to match up players from players from before who have made a similar amount of league starts and see how they compare: (stats from soccerbase and sufcdb) Dan Bentley with 122 league starts has overtaken Peter Goy with 118 John White on 101 is one ahead of John Neal...
  13. Most players to have played for Southend now in a Premiership starting 11

    I was watching MOTD last night and saw that Bournmouth had Simon Francis (captain) , Federici , and Junior Stainislass in the line up . It made me wonder what is the most amount of ex shrimpers (signed or on loan ), that have played together in the Premiership? Any advances on three?
  14. Simon Francis

    playing at Anfirld tonight
  15. Ref Watch ...... Brighton H League Cup

    Last time we hosted Brighton in the League Cup, we were in the Championship and they were in League One. We scored in the 87th, 88th and again in stoppage time to win 3-2 and we fielded players of the calibre of Freddy Eastwood, Gary Hooper and Simon Francis; they had Revell. Their new ground...

    This could just be the start

    Bournemouth had to win their last game 7 years ago to stay in League 2. Fans collected cash in buckets to keep them afloat Last night they were effectively promoted to the Premier League. Simon Francis has been a regular for them. Dreams can come true and our match on Saturday could just be the...
  17. Ref Watch ....... Dagenham & Redbridge A

    Referee's travelling expenses will be low on Saturday, with the man in charge being Frederick Graham who hails from Orsett - pretty much midway between the two clubs. For geographical reasons, other than pre-season friendlies, neither Dagenham nor Southend have seen much of Fred over his many...
  18. Another Surrey Shrimper

    Helen, Norman, Francis

    I would bump into this trio on trains to away matches constantly over the last few years but this season nothing. There are various logistical reasons why they may have been at the games and I haven't seen them but can anyone who has seen them recently let me know please. thanks

    Market Research

    Good morning Shrimpers, I have a thread in the charity forum, but I've not had much in the way of feedback so far. I thought I'd put the questions here to see if I might get a bit more feedback. Any advise will be greatly received. For full details, please see the charity forum: 1) Last year...
  20. Was this guy right in what he did?

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/relationships/fatherhood/11086456/Was-I-right-to-complain-about-my-daughters-teacher.html Was I right to complain about my daughter's teacher? Robert Francis complained about a teacher at his daughter's nursery because he didn't like the look of him. Rightly or...
