  1. Ref Watch ...... Rotherham

    Weather and pitch permitting, the man in charge tomorrow evening is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 8th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. He did absolutely no games at all the season before last which would...

    Injury worry rocks Blues

    SOUTHEND United manager Paul Sturrock fears Mark Phillips and Jean-Paul Kalala could both be facing long lay-offs after picking up injuries during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Shrewsbury Town. More...

    50 Goals

    Mohsni's injury time goal on Saturday was our 50th league goal of the season (makes us the joint 5th highest scorers in the country behind Man City, Man Utd, Sheff Utd and Huddersfield). I've had a look back through the seasons and our previous quickest was the glorious 1980/81 season when we...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Port Vale

    Port Vale are the visitors to the Hall on Saturday, as a rejuvenated Southend side will probably look to field all three of this week's new signings. Port Vale have a bit of a selection nightmare, however, as first-teamers Stuart Tomlinson and Rob Taylor are out through injury, with a further...
  6. Mohsni ankle injury?

    According to the OS Mohsni is unavailable because of an 'ankle injury,' does anyone know if he really is injured, or whether we're just trying to delay a decision on what to do with him?

    Jimmy Corbett

    The injury prone frontman has been forced to hang up his boots at the age of 31. Corbett made the decision after being told he will need yet another operation to cure an ankle injury sustained playing for Herne Bay in an FA Cup tie at Deal Town three months ago.

    Pre-Match Thread Aldershot v Southend United

    So with Moshni and Gilbert already out and Barker doubtful, Sawyer now joins the list of players unavailable for this game. CJPhillips1982 Sawyer suffers another thigh injury and reveals he will miss boxing day game at aldershot.
  9. Your next starting Eleven and why.

    Given the chance to pick the team i would start in the next game with players that can be picked ; Right now i think give Morris a start so we can prepare now for when Daniels loan finishes i would play Clohessy,Barker,Phillips,Prosser at back 4 Bringing in Prosser for Gilbert purely because of...

    Training ground gossip

    Yesterday I went down to Boots & Laces to have lunch with Michael Timlin, as part of TravelZone's sponsorship. Chris Barker and Liam Dickinson were there as well with a couple of other fans. - As far as everyone is concerned Tuesday night never happened. (which would indicate Bilel is...

    A considered opinion

    There is an air of inevitability about defeat against Bradford on Friday evening, and when (not if) this occurs the time for big decisions will have been reached. That will be six games without a win, and, at least 12 without a good performance. For a team that was top of the league, two games...
  12. Oldham V Southend

    Hi all, Oldham fan here. Really looking forward to tuesdays replay, the reward for the winner is incentive enough to make it a cracking match. Both sides suffered losses yesterday, so we both go into the game in a similar frame of mind. As regards ourselves, our performance against sheff wed...
  13. Ref Watch .... Cheltenham away

    On Tuesday I gave you the details for James Linington only for Darren Sheldrake to turn up and do a better job than I would have expected. Hopefully no late changes this time. Saturday's rather important match will be refereed by Jock Waugh from Sheffield. He is in his third season as a League...

    A Shrimper till I die!

    Am still on my endless travels (Malta for now) but will always be Southend! Priceless memories, great people, laughs, lots of miles, the odd injury, a few wins, a few more draws and lots of defeats! Ha ha. Am loving seeing Southend United top of the league - still as proud as ever. C'Mon You...

    We should beat Crawley

    Went to the Crawley vs Redbridge game yesterday and really didn't see anything to fear. The 5-0 scoreline flattered them. Redbridge had done very well to get to round 2 but they are a very poor team and they actually managed to play some half decent football against Crawley in periods, this is...
  16. Team for Oldham?

    Can't see a usual pre- match thread for tomorrow's game. Interesting team selection issues in terms of managing the squad through injury niggles and suspension worries for the next three games I'd go for : Daniels (get the best out of his loan) Clohessy (like to rest him but Leonard not...

    If both fail to make it due to injury what would be your team for tomorrow !!

    Superior fitness of our players

    Being a bit of a sad statto, I was looking at the stats on football365 We have conceded 1 goal in the last 15 minutes (including injury time) all season, whilst scoring 9 in this period. Amazing!
