    Pre-Match Thread PNE v Southend United

    So, here it is. The "magic" of the FA Cup..... And we go to Preston. Oh. Anyhow... Our hosts go into this game sitting 13th in League One. With 7 wins, 2 draws and 7 defeats from their 16 games so far. Scoring 31 (3rd highest in Lge 1) and conceeding 34 (the worst in Lge 1) So clearly they...

    The "Striker" Department

    So we have the following that could all (if required) play up top: Dickinson Harris Hall Mohsni Corr Sturrock Crawford Asante JJ Does anyone else feel that we need to clear a couple of those out and get 1 more "quality" striker in? Or are you happy with the options we have currently? All it...
  3. Breaking News Luke Daniels/Goalkeeper for Saturday related chat

    So a awkard sceranio for the FA cup game with Preston next week, with the news of Daniel Bentley getting injured today. Morris is still out with his injury and Daniels is not allowed to play due to a clause with his loan. So could the club play Luke Chambers the youth team keeper, will the...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Freddy Eastwood

    With Freddy there's only one place to start: has there ever been a better debut? I very much doubt it, and I include fiction in that. Scoring after just 7.7 seconds of your professional debut against the top of the table team before going onto complete your hattrick is the type of story that...

    JPT getting in the way

    For me, the JPT game on Tuesday is a bit of a nuisance. I wish it was a league game so we can try and keep the momentum going and keep collecting valuable points. In addition to this, I am a little concerned that we might pick-up a costly injury or two... or a red (or two the way we've been...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Plymouth Argyle

    If Dickinson returns, he will be the replacement for the banned Mohsni in his present guise as striker. Hopefully Corr will be fit enough to make a brief cameo appearance.....perhaps Harris as well, however I just have a feeling that we may have to wait a little longer for his return. To...

  12. Can a footballer learn to control anger?

    Or for that matter can any human being learn to control anger? Well the simple answer is yes we can learn to control anger. But in general anger cannot be managed simply by someone trying harder next time to avoid getting angry (as some seem to think). I have never heard of footballers...
  13. Ref Watch Top officials at Crawley .... or are they ?

    The officials as appointed and still publicised are Lee Probert, with Darren Cann and Peter Kirkup on the lines and Peter Walton as 4th official. Lee Probert is a very decent official but we won't be seeing him as he's doing a Europa Cup game in Cyprus on Thursday. Instead I expect that the...
  14. What is wrong with Blair?

    What is his injury? Can I have a serious answer on this one please
  15. JFC to Lincoln

    Jean-Francois Christophe will be teaming up with Tilly and Brush again. Once his thigh injury clears up.
  16. Ref Watch .... Accrington away

    Saturday's match will be refereed by Jock Waugh from Sheffield. He is in his third season as a League referee although he missed a good chunk of last season through injury. He has refereed Southend just once before, at Hartlepool the season before last when we lost 3-0. The only Southend player...
  17. Question Bilel Mohsni - Where will he go?

    Now I’m, like many, a big fan of Mohsni, but when everyone’s fit where will he go? For me he’s not an option long-term as a striker – I feel that when Dickinson and Corr are both fit they will certainly be a better option than Bilel. Although Dickinson only came on toward the end I saw enough to...
  18. sufc_tom


    Just been thinking that everyone has been talking on about the midfield three (if we play 4-3-3), so what about upfront? The start of the season it will most likely be; Hall Harris and Johnson. But what when Corr is back from injury? Will PS drop Hall or Johnson to fit Corr in, or will he change...
