    FA Cup: East Thurrock United 4-4 Chelmsford City

    What can you say about a game that had an injury time equaliser, and then had an extra time injury time equaliser. On top, of course, an injury time equaliser on Saturday before last night's replay? Quite a bit, as it turned out. A privilege to be at one of the best games anyone could ever...

    Southend United's Paul Sturrock: Losing Michael Timlin was a major blow at Morecambe

    SOUTHEND United manager Paul Sturrock felt an early injury to influential midfielder Michael Timlin contributed towards his team’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at Morecambe on Saturday. More...
  3. Kane Ferdinand

    Kane gave away a needless penalty in injury time today, gifting Watford a 1-0 win. Shame for him, but it was the missing result from my fixed odds coupon so personally I'm delighted.

  5. Breaking News Jason Taylor signing delayed or is it Donald Ducked?

    To inform you guys the League 2 midfielder Paul Sturrock is bringing in will be delayed for the time being. The player has picked up an injury. Unsure who the player is. This came from a friend last night but will now confirm this in a thread as the Echo have the story on it also.

  8. Ref Watch ......... Exeter home

    Just when we can do without any suspensions, they send 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 thirteenth Southend match in...

    Squad for Saturday

    So, with Phillips and Smith likely out for Saturday's game and Harris still absent with his groin injury. What does our squad and bench look like? One positive is that Eastwood is back but we're lacking in midfield. Bentley Clohessey - ?? - Cresswell - Barker Hurst - Timlin - Spicer - Martin...

    Harris Out with Knee Injury

    More bad news, sod's law when you have such a small squad. Chopper is out of today's match with a medial Knee ligament injury, could be up to 6 weeks out :sad:

    Question Our injury position

    Besides having a number of players missing through injury now, we seem to have had quite a high level of injuries during the pre-season and games so far as well - Spicer, Eastwood, Hurst, Martin, Timlin and Corr - come to mind. At this time of year you might blame the hard ground as a factor -...

  17. Ryan Hall - Staying or going?

    My first thread. Official line is Ryan Hall missed todays match with a foot injury. Do you go along with that or is it a disguise to mask his leaving sometime in the week?

    Why such a poor start?

    So we have had the worst start in 20 years. 3 defeats (1 cup) out of 3. No goals scored, 7 goals conceded (4 in cup), injury problems and now Timlin suspended for a game. But what is the reason for this awful start? Are the players not fit enough? Are the players not good enough? Are the...

  20. Captain Barker-Discuss

    Is it time for Chris Barker to do the "club Captains" bit, and say... "I'm not good enough at this moment in time, and I am going to step aside" ? Do you think he is in the side because he is the 'Club Captain'? I like Barkers leadership, and his style of play "was" what held things together...
