  1. Floval Flyer

    Coaching staff

    Just at looking at the senior coaching staff on the club website, we only have PB, GC, and Lee Harrison (goalkeeping coach), plus old man Horton named, but there is no attacking coach? Who assumes these duties, as none of the aforementioned played in an attacking role in their careers, so who...
  2. Ron ought to.....

    Seriously think Ron ought to ban PB from speaking to the press for the next few weeks. Maybe use Horton to issue some basic non controversial board sanctioned statements before and after matches. PB needs to keep his head down and his mouth firmly shut and concentrate on coaching. The era of...

    Brian Horton's Contribution

    Has our form coincided with the arrival of Horton in and around the squad, it's known he is harsh and ruthless in an old skool Northern manner. Now I'm not blaming him but I am wondering what is his actual contribution and I assume he is paid a pretty penny along with handsome expenses whilst...

    Dean Holdsworth

    Has left his position as Director of football at Bolton, perhaps Brian Horton will be head hunted...............
  5. Rattus Norvegicus

    Sign players early ......... or play a waiting game

    With the squad decreasing each week Brown, Horton and co will be working away looking at signing new players for the coming season. Now, we all like to see some quick signings - it suggests that the club is a desirable place to be, the finances are in order and that we are taking our pick from...

    Has he done anything really? Anybody have any inside info? Anybody feel this appointment is a waste of money?

    Come on Southend update official site

    The official site still has League 2 list in away travel section. Still no team photo for this new season. Surely Brian Horton must have time on his hands to update information that is important to fans.:smile: The footballgrounds guide website is used by several clubs, give them a ring and...
  8. Brown and the changes

    Those Brown shoes really didn't work with the suit Phil, credit for making the change at half time, think you should have brought in a stylist rather than Brian Horton :winking::smile:
  9. Question Browns back room staff

    Will Brown bring his own back room staff in - Brian Horton was his assistant at his previous clubs??
  10. Macclesfield part with Brian Horton

    Could this have an effect on Saturday? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/17868617
  11. Ref Watch ....... Shrewsbury

    Saturday's referee is Dean Whitestone from Northampton, in his sixth season as a Football League referee. He is a referee we have seen a lot of at Roots Hall but rarely away from home. He has refereed eight games at Roots Hall. He was here twice last season for the league win against Torquay...
  12. 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...
  13. Ref Watch .... Wolves away

    We have the normally decent referee Colin Webster from Tyne and Wear in charge of tomorrow's match. He is a Chartered Surveyor with an interest in property development; perhaps Ronald and he could have a bit of a chat before the match and he could tell Ron where he is going wrong. In his 10th...

    Some good news from the Echo

    For those of you who had emotional involvement or passing curiosity, some brilliant news as far as I'm concerned in that Jack Horton - who was the other "victim" of the Thorpe Bay crash - has returned home to his family (can't find a link to it on the Echo's pages, but it's front page on the one...

    Fabregas' gob

    Fabregas is an excellent player, but... if this is true about him spitting at the feet of Brian Horton, then I hope he gets a 5 match ban. He was reportedly a central figure in "Pizzagate" and also chose to insult Mark Hughes a couple of years or so ago when Blackburn played Arsenal in the FA...

    Furious Phil Unleashes Hell

    Arsenal 2-1 Hull City (Van Persie, 74) (Barmby, 12) (Gallas, 84) Phil Brown's phone will be red hot by now. In one exhilarating ten minute press conference, the furious Hull City manager unleashed a string of attacks aimed at everyone he deemed responsible for his team's exit. He accused Cesc...
  17. Ref Watch .....Hereford away

    Just three days before we play at Swindon, we have a referee from Swindow at Hereford on Saturday. It is "rookie" referee Simon Hooper in his first season, refereeing both Southend and Hereford for the first time. He has refereed 20 games at this level, producing a decidedly average 46 yellows...

    Shaun Thorton

    Sorry, I have to say this boy did his homework on us and purposly set out to get either Maher or McCormack sent off. This is the problem of having two mouthy hot head centre mids playing together, and I think you might see other clubs try this tactic against us. Dispacable as it maybe. However...

    Derby not giving up on Eastwood

    Derby County have not given up hope of signing striker Freddy Eastwood despite Southend United telling the Rams and other interested clubs: "Don't waste your time - he's not for sale." Eastwood is seen as a partner for Steve Howard but the Rams have been frustrated by Southend's decision to...

    Col******r's new boss

    Once the Col Ewe Board accept the inevitable and let PIG go, which mug/clown will take the lukewarm seat at Layer Road. If I were a bookmaker I might price up the odds on successor's thus: Geraint Williams 5/2 Bryan Klug 9/2 Gary Megson 7/1 Rob Newman 10/1 Ian Atkins 10/1 Sean...
