    How do we turn round this slump in form ?

    We have had such a dramatic drop in form that I am seriously worried that this season could be another wash out. We had that fantastic run but the wheels seem to have come off spectacularly. Also the injury list now looks so bad that I don't see how we can plug the gaps. There are so many teams...

    Luke Prosser, did he deserve to be dropped?

    Just a question to see what others think, I know the midfield is not protecting the side at the moment, but I wonder whether Prosser being out of the side has also made us look weaker at the back. Don't get me wrong, if we was starting a season fresh and I was picking my best team on paper...

    Marc Laird injury

    According to CP and PS it's a hamstring injury and he'll be out for a few weeks. :sad:
  4. Smith says sorry and also not good news about Britt's injury

  5. Its Only A Game

    Anyone had dealings with "The Road Traffic Group"?

    These people are really bugging me now. I had a small knock in my car a year ago when i was stationary and someone hit me at about 5mph. My car didn't looked damaged but as it was a company lease vehicle I had to get it checked at the local audi dealer. They pass all this work onto another...
  6. IN or OUT

    With all the ( very tedious ) Smith and Eastwood debates of late , I'm getting confused now as to who is 'IN FAVOUR' and who is 'OUT'. There have been pro and con comments about everyone of our squad , which is fine as it's all about opinions. I've listed some below ( some slightly tongue in...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Gillingham kick off 1'clock don't forget!

    I think we're all hoping Britt is ok to start this one although if not, I think it's Freddy's turn to start. If anyone knows how to outplay Barrett, then Freddy will! Will be in the Shrimpers early as we've draw tickets to prepare and I understand there's bacon rolls on offer - sounds good to...
  9. Ref Watch ....... Friday night refwatch - Chesterfield

    The return of Friday night football sees Rob Lewis making the unnecessarily long journey from Shrewsbury for his third visit to Roots Hall as a referee. This is the third season of his second spell as a League referee, having lost his place in 2008 primarily due to injury. One of our shorter...

    So he doesn't just write!

    So that's how he gets the inside information! On the official site about tonight's match, we learn: Team News: Tamika Mkandawire and Britt Assombalonga will not be available for selection, while Chris Phillips continues his recovery from injury. Gavin Tomlin will also have a late fitness test...
  12. Ref Watch ....... JPT Brentford

    Tonight's match official is the experienced and normally very decent Mick Russell from St Albans. A steady official in his 9th season (although he missed most of last season with an injury), this will be his 12th Southend match and his 7th at Roots Hall. His first home Southend match was...

    How will the story end...?

    There's a distinct lack of threads at the moment, likely due to our good fortune. That's not a criticism, there just always seems to be less to debate when things are running smoothly on the pitch... So how do we think the season is going to pan out from here? Our goalkeeper has had some...

    The Case for the Defence

    The vast majority of threads on this board seem to be about either the keeper, the midfield (non-existent until recently) or the forwards, but nothing has been really said about the defence. Apologies for being positive, but isn't the defence blindingly good? Taking them one by one: Sean...

    Vale struggling for players

    Just seen this on a vale forum, looks like they are struggling. And for probably the first time this season we have practically a full strength squad available and also competition for places etc. I actually feel like we have a geniune chance of a good run coming up. Valiants short of numbers...
  18. Ref Watch .... Magic of the Cup Refwatch

    Man in charge of our 1,500th game at Roots Hall is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 9th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his fourteenth Southend match in charge...
