  1. Orient forum

    Love it!!!! There are already talking about Wembley ticket prices for final There know about our injury crisis and think BBC would be a crap CB Moshni in on about 4 threads but they dont rate him? Some on there think it will be a cricket score They think they are taking north and west...
  2. RobM

    Nothing divides opinion more that Mohsni!

    In the dire suspension/injury situation we're in, would you play him?
  3. Kane Ferdinand

    He doesn't seem to be getting a lot of game time at Peterborough. How about getting him back from Posh for a month PS to help us through our injury crisis - and at the same time help him get fit? He should be able to slip straight back into the team - can play a number of positions etc. If they...

    Southend United's Luke Prosser: We can't blame our injuries for defeat against Chelts

    SOUTHEND United’s stand-in captain Luke Prosser refused to blame his side’s mounting injury list as an excuse for last night’s 2-1 defeat against Cheltenham Town at Roots Hall. More...

    How quickly things change!!

    This time last week, we were all basking in the glory of a fabulous night away at Orient, dreaming of Wembley. Yet, 7 days on and the club finds itself in a desperate situation on and off the field. At the end of the transfer window i can remember thinking that PS had done good business and the...
  7. Promotion

    After last night and the mounting injury list who still thinks we are going to get promoted? I may just be overreacting, and I hope I am, but if things carry on with the injuries and suspensions I can't see us going to wembley or getting promoted. This month is probably our most crucial month...
  8. Our Injury problems

    It seems this season may be hitting a brick wall partly due to an awful record of injuries! I have no doubts our first team on a regular basis would be a force to be reckoned with in this division. Well my question is why/how we have such a poor record of injuries this season? Is something...

    Oh dear C55/56 South Upper

    Sometimes I despair. Granted, tonight we were poor and, granted too, folk have a right to vent their frustration. But how miserable and de-motivating can folk get? Well, C55 and 56 in the South Upper set new levels tonight. From the outset they moaned like morons but the second half saw it...

    Question Britt Assombolonga - thoughts?

    It is two thirds of the way through the season (ish) yet I am still unsure of whether I rate Assombolonga or not, I usually have fairly strong opinions on most players but for whatever reason, the jury is still out for me. I was very shocked to see him on the bench tonight, but then I started...

    "You don't win anything with Kids"

    I will probably get shot down for this, but hey it's a football forum for debates after all. So back to the topic of my thread, as a famous football pundit infamously once said "You don't win anything with kids" and to a certain extent, this is sadly very true. In fairness, Paul Sturrock is...

    Bring back the Hoof ?

    One hell of a lot of talk on here last season regarding our style of play. Pleading with P.S.to change our style and try to play some football. The biggest change, players wise, has been Prosser who has improved no end in this regard (made captain V Accrington.) So how do we now compare to last...

    Pre-Match Thread Team for Accrington, Lancashire

    It seems the goalie and back four pick themselves - and I know of no new injury worries there. I suspect Barry will be back to partner Britt up front ............ leaving the midfield selection. Hurst, Laird and Spillane plus one other. Leonard or Reeves ......... or coming up on the outside...

    Tomlin injury

    Was on crutches today so he clearly won't be available for Tuesday night. As Sturrock said after the game, today showed how important he is for us. Anyone know how long he is expected to be out for?

    Unpublished article from the Southend/Chelsea programme

    Sadly we won't be playing Chelsea but in anticipation I had already written the article for the official programme so perhaps still of interest: CHELSEA v SOUTHEND 100 YEARS AGO Southend’s first meeting with Chelsea was a 100 years ago in the 1st Round of the Cup (equivalent of 3rd round...
