    Wimbledon 2011

    Who is going to win this year? The Women's looks to be open with Clijsters withdrawing because of injury and both Williams sisters coming back after long spells out with injury. Be nice to see Maria Sharapova grunt her way to another title. I think the Men may be a bit easier to predict as...
  5. £95m... would you let your boss do this to you?

    Mohsni: Our best worst player ever...

    ...or our worst best player, I can't decide. In switching Mohsni up-front for the last twenty minutes today, was Sturrock mixing it up a bit, giving the fans something to get behind or dodging having to substitute the danger man in our defense? Like everyone else, I love a bit of Mohsni...
  7. AGM minutes

    Uncle Albert, boots shining like a cyclists tail light,strode into the foyer of the Palace Hotel. As he did so a smartly dressed youngman hesitantly came forward to greet him. His job was to welcome all the Bluesshareholders as they arrived for the clubs AGM and he’d obviously beenforewarned not...

    Starting already.......

    Well I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by some of our fan base, but listening to the coverage of the game on BBC Essex last night, I couldn't quite believe my ears, when a text was read out stating that Sturrock should "......do us all a favour, and go back to Devon, taking his son with...
  9. Ref Watch ..... Aldershot

    On Saturday Rob Lewis, from Shrewsbury, makes his second visit to Roots Hall as a referee. This is the first season of his second spell as a League referee, having lost his place in 2008 primarily due to injury. His only previous visit to the Hall was for the 2-0 home victory over Luton...

    Essex County Cricket 2011 Season

    Advice please

    My son is due to run the London Marathon next month but he banged his knee on a wall playing football. As part of his preparation he was due to run 20 miles yesterday but only made 15. Appears to be an impact injury which would presumably improve with rest - but he wont be able to complete his...

    Under 18's Match Report Youths draw 2-2 at Peterborough - 12th March 2011

    Southend United Under-18s withstood the loss through injury of Luke Chambers midway through the first half and the dismissal of Duane Ofori-Acheampong early in the second period to record an exciting 2-2 draw away to Peterborough United. Rob Craven's Match Report can be found here.
  14. Anthony Grant -

    initially surprised to see him not starting - is he carrying a injury ? but I enjoyed his Lincoln preview interview on BW - says he is in touch with Scott (I don't like the man Sturrock) Spencer and Paterson - who were apparently banished to training with the youths - was he just having a...
  15. Anthony Pilkington

    Apparently he suffered an absolutely horrendous ankle injury tonight in Huddersfield's win against Rochdale. Local news was saying that both sets of team were really shocked by it, and team mates reduced to tears. I hope it's not career-ending, but a real shame as I always thought he was a class...

    The Island Derby: Concord Rangers 1, Canvey 0

    So, just a few short years after the then Gulls' manager Jeff King said they will be the number one team in Essex, it's confirmed - Canvey Island aren't even the number one team on Canvey Island. Big crowd at Thames Road, 720. I thought the Gulls supporters let themselves down a bit with...

    How bout a bit of credit for Barry Corr, regularly

    ....pops up and gets us the points. Suffers from injury and still does the business. Not quite as fashionable as Eastwood but very effective for us in this league and very underated on here. Thanks Barry, your goals have kept our season alive!

    Breaking News Bilel Mohsni Injury update

    Saw Bilel at the reserve game today and he had a chat in the stand with supporters. He was on crutches, he said the injury was bad although didn't actually say what the injury was but he did say he would be out for 2 months.
  19. Reserves v Luton this afternoon

    Decent side to be fair. Im looking forward to game and glad its free entry. Bouzid is a waste of space. Get him off the wage bill. Better youngsters coming through who wouldnt earn as much. David Obaze doesnt fill me with much confidence either. 6ft 5 and doesnt dominate like he should...
