  1. Fitness

    It comes across that player fitness is crucial to our season. When we have our best players fit and available we are a force and the quality is clear to see. Some teams just cannot cope with us. When we don't you never know what you are going to get. What really worried me tonight is that we had...

  3. Mid Season Reality Check

    Well, half way through our season back in L1 & after reading some things on here, what are people expecting! We are doing extremely well to be where we in a tough league & I am very proud to be a blues fans..... the last 2 games haven't gone to plan, 4-0 & 3-0 at home, but, we were always going...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Millwall FC

    There have been mutterings of no pre-match thread yet for our next competitive game, this time in the JPT. Little bursts of referee and assistants news have popped out elsewhere, tactics and whether Millwall will be knackered/injured/very scared/not got enough tickets (delete as appropriate)...

    Phil Brown - Tactically spot on tonight

    He got it spot on tonight. I would probably have brought Weston on a little earlier but he got the subs right. Stevenage were knackered, Weston destroyed them. Good team shape as well, get the ball to Corr and hold it up. Superb stuff Phil.

    Results thread !

    I love being in HK. 741am and four results in. Woke up to a surprising exit poll. They are never right but they are usually a decent indicator. My working morning is going to be much more enjoyable and only the urgent will be done. If I was in the UK typically I would be up until around 4am and...
  7. Phil Brown pre-season.

    Very interesting listening to this now that we are at the last 2 game stage. The fitness regime he talks about has worked, as the team still looks strong in that regard. In fact the 2 loanees that are getting some playing time look the most knackered, that being Pigott and Cassidy, so the...

    Phone disasters

    A family member has lost their phone which was subsequently handed in after being found in a car park. It looks like it has been run over by a car. The phone rings when called but the screen is completely knackered. Vodafone want 190 sheets if they can repair or the 370 touch to replace. Any...
  9. Time to rest some players?

    We are in an enviable position! We are all but certain to be in the playoffs but seeing as we can't make the autos, is it time to rest some players? In essence, is it really worth going into the playoffs knackered (just to try and get the 2nd leg at home) when we have a golden opportunity to...
  10. Knackers Yard. Who Would You Rest?

    It's coming up to that time again when some of our players will be treading treacle. It's happened badly the last 2 seasons because of small squad, suspensions and injuries, meaning some players played a lot of games. The midfielders get through the most running, so I would rest Timlin and...

    Fixture Pile up

    Assuming our Hull match is on the Sunday 26th ( as seems likely ) , we then have a League 2 match at Dagenham on Tuesday 28th quickly followed by a friday night fixture at home to Newport on the 31st. 3 tough matches in this short space of time is league promotion chasing suicide...... We...

    Modern football

    http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/jim-white/wantaway-benteke-proves-competition-dead-football-190527650.html This shows the state football is knackered. Paul Lambert will never build anything, simply because as soon as he gets a decent player, one of the big 4 will come and take that player...

    Finish with a whimper or a BANG!

    ? What is it to be for the final stretch of the season? We can't win anything by playing safe: so now lets try and get some goals and entertain. We have 4 very good (for this division) strikers and we may as well have them all on the pitch together. We may concede a few (we are anyway) BUT we...
  14. FC - Match 4

    BATTY SHRIMPERS v Poppadom CC Bowlers are all knackered and rest before Friday's big game, but bats are fine, so draw is the best we can hope for. Lots of leather chasing today, although somehow we've managed to take a wicket :happy: We can tell you that Poppadom CC won the toss and elected to...

    External HDD Help

    Recently my HDD's wire has been showing signs of... well... near knackered-dom, really. So I got it replaced. However, just before I did, my laptop wasn't recognising the HDD, saying it needed reformatting before use. It still is even after the thing's been replaced. I can't reformat the...

    The mongol rally 2012

    Well I had intended on leaving this until nearer the time but things have moved on a little quicker than expected so here goes. Several years ago I was being all funky and surfing the net when I happened across an web site called TheAdventurists. Through my drunken haze I read about a totally...

    Internet rumour

    Was reading the usual rubbish in the sun online this morning which featured information for a "three Lions source" Got to work and read an email about Gerrard getting his wife's sister pregnant - apparently she doesn't have a sister - and got to wondering how good a story would you need to make...

    A Pig 36 Hours

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...
  19. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 2 (2005-2009)

    1st April 2005: Southend United 2 – 0 Bristol Rovers (League Two) The second half of the decade began with our beloved Shrimpers surging up the league on the back of a series of virtuoso performances from new signing Freddy Eastwood. From the second week of January we went on a long unbeaten run...

    "Revell failed to live up to expectations"

    What on earth King? That's ridiculous. He was signed as someone to run down the defenders, we knew that's what he was. If you expected a striker to score every other game then you should have checked his record. I notice how it's Geoffrey King quoted there and not Tilson, he's clearly not best...
