    Pre-Match Thread Rochdale v Southend United

    Another game coming on Tuesday....a decent pitch too. I think Powell is in a squad assessment mode at the moment. Hence Wright getting a full game, ladapo starting a few along with Harrison. My team for dale. ..............oxley Demi Turner Anton Coker Macca dru mantom kightly...
  2. Leonard and our 4 midfielders

    Many ( maybe most ) of us will acknowledge that Ryan Leonard has been our ‘stand out’ player of the past few seasons. He has stood out on more than one occasion - top player. Yet in the three wins under Saint Chris , the performances and work rate of McLaughlin , Timlin, Yearwood and Kightly has...

    John White signs one year deal

    SOUTHEND United defender John White is set to sign a one year deal to stay with the Shrimpers, Echosport understands. More...
  4. Famine...here we go again !

    The media now bombarding us with the "crisis" in many parts of the world with the term "children" in the forefront. Hmmmm all those charities and of course the hand outs by many countries all adds up to massive mountains of money BUT charities are pleading for another 5 billion dollars to halt...
  5. Shrimpers are Magic

    Michael Timlin

    He's had his knockers but IMO he is not only the best signing Sturrock made but one of our all time great players. Broken bones and spilt blood for the cause. One hard paddy who can play a bit as well. Yours views, good and bad please...

    Today was our best 11 IMO

    I personally feel that brown had his best 11 players out there today and it just goes to show, it's been a long time coming but that 11 are capable of holding their own and beating most teams in this league . It's a no brainier but Ranger is the key to where's we finish this season - IF he...
  8. Millwall vs Southend

    Aside from the result, we can all surely agree how good our away fans were last night. I know some people grumble about the home support, but our away support is pure class imo - couldn't hear a thing from the Millwall also. Your opinions on Home and Away support?
  9. Farron

    Timmy spouting rubbish again,he wants to help every waif and stray,he demands another vote on Brexit. Yet Timmy is against same sex marriage !! Politicians don't you just love them,tut tut Timothy.
  10. Will Cox and Mooney hit the target?

    4th game proper for these 2 tonight and both are still searching for their first goal this season . Mooney is not my kind of player whilst Cox IMO is a tad luxury player. Hope I'm wrong and both score plenty this season.
  11. BrettieAngell


    Some complete ****ing tosser was clocked doing 154mph on the A11 and as a "punishment" he received a 56 day ban! Should be 2 or 3 years IMO. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-36963826
  12. Reality check !

    Ok we were destroyed by Millwall,but the truth is we only need 15 points from 23 games to guarantee safety in this division. Our main aim has IMO always been to gain 52 points ASAP,once that target is achieved then we can see where we end up,promotion or the play offs is not impossible but some...
  13. Phil's current goal getters .

    Since Corr left,the list of our best scorers during Phil's reign is rather surprising IMO . Leonard.......17 Hurst...........13 Pigott...........12 Payne...........10 Timlin...........8 Worrall..........8 Eastwood.......6 Straker..........6 Atkinson........6 There are a further 21 different...

    Memory Lane Tony Bentley

    For all fans of a certain age it was great to see our former player Tony Bentley at Roots Hall yesterday. Now 76 Tony was playing when I first stated going to Roots Hall in the early sixties. He signed for Blues in May 1961 from Stoke City and went on to play over 400 league & cup matches before...
  15. enough of Jack Payne cant play in midfield

    JP looked the best player on the pitch, for 30 min, i would really like to see PB include him in his starting eleven. Those that say he cant play in a 442, because his tracking back isnt all it should be, imo are missing the point, i would rather win 3 2 than 1 0, that imo would get more fans...
  16. Napster

    Anthony Gerrard

    Doesnt like Chris Powell, has a subtle dig at Phil Brown (IMO), and plays for free at Shrewsbury http://www.theleaguepaper.com/latest-news/football-league-division-one/2799/a-love-of-football-comes-at-no-cost-for-anthony-gerrard/
  17. Granola 1 - Deegan 0

    652047516612079616 It's great that Deegan has hit form and proven some doubters wrong. He's a good player (IMO) who's passing is underrated.
  18. Rooney v Charlton

    Currently joint top scorers with Rooney guaranteed to smash Sir Bobby's record and setting the record which IMO will never be broken. Charlton scored in a different era,his 49 was hard fought against decent teams whilst refs allowed the most violent challenges go unpunished. Rooney had scored...

    The Great British Bake OFF

    I love this programme, it has been interesting and mildly amusing IMO. I have checked contestants and from Essex there is a Lithuanian female body builder! ( Not too much British in her then). Standard seems to be 6 men, six women, some old, some mums, some grans, token...
