    Contract talk

    It’s that time. There’s been a lot of talk about a clear out under CP and with rumours about Wright and Wordsworth it’s clear that he’s going to be ruthless. Here’s my take, though it’s a bit of a mix of what I predict CP might do and what I would do, though of course finances, etc., come into...

    Would Nile ranger have benefited from being managed by Chris Powell

    Chris strikes me as the kind of manager that prides himself on knowing his players and offering that arm round the shoulder type of management. Just wondering if he had come in earlier would this have given Nile a lifeline. I guess we will never know but I'm convinced he would have flourished...
  3. Floval Flyer


    All this talk of PB out, and yes I agree - time to go... But, who would legitimately take over the reigns? Knowing how Ron likes a 'name' I wouldn't be surprised if any of the following are on speed dial at the moment: Mark Warburton Paul Lambert Billy Davies Simon Grayson All of the above...
  4. Paul Konchesky

    Read today Paul Konchesky is set to sign for Billericay Town after a falling out with new management. It's a massive step down for him. Whether it's Billericay's new owner making a statement and bankrolling his salary [like we've seen at Canvey and Chelmsford with Jeff King] or his made the...
  5. Question how much do you think the events of this month?

    How much do you think the events of this month may have influenced RM and PB on transfer targets.Its been a bad month when you think about it first the Ranger ban ,followed by the injury to McLaughlin,then the loss to Sheff Utd and the cancelled game against Bolton and the last minute equaliser...

    Justin Edinburgh

    Great piece in the Times today on him (Sorry not IT enough to copy on here) However the piece I loved was his time with the boo boys at Spurs " I was one of the longest serving players and became an easy target for the boo boys. It takes a lot to go out there, knowing your not as popular as...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Millwall FC

    Near enough to Saturday to kick this thread off I think. We've done, or are doing, the bums on seats bit, now its about who will play. My guess is that Oxley and Kyprianou will return to the starting line-up, but without knowing who Brown had most of a down on after Scunthorpe, it's difficult...

    Pre-Match Thread Bolton Wanderers v Southend United

    Time to give Saturday's game it's own thread I think. Last night's result will possibly mean that there are changes made to the starting eleven, or not, knowing PB. So I'm going for this: Smith White Sokolik Ferdinand Thompson Coker Lenny Atkinson Mooney Cox McLaughlin No particular formation...

    Totally beyond belief????

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-35773649 No, this is not about the veracity or otherwise, of these leaked papers..........it's a more important question than that. We live in a western democracy........freedom of the press and all that b******s. So, from that point of view and...

    I miss...

    Having watched football for a long time, things have undoubtedly improved for the better, but there are some things (gone for ever) which I miss.................... Small boys sitting on the wall at matches Paying at the turnstiles Not having to buy tickets in advance Not having to listen on...
  12. Bradford ticket refund

    Has anybody else had trouble getting a refund for pre purchased Bradford ticket. After the disappointing long trip to Bradford last Saturday and knowing I will not be going on a probable Tuesday to replayed game I have attempted to get a refund twice this week at our ticket office. Nothing doing...

    Memory Lane This time last week....

    Personally, we were at Roots Hall beginning to organise loading supporters on the 18 coaches out of Roots Hall, little knowing what excitement was ahead. Feels like a lifetime ago but still sitting with a soppy grin on my face thinking about the day! :loyalsupporter:
  14. Question how many games did Williams play at Chelmsford ?

    I ask that question as obviously he knows where the back of the net is having scored 7 goals for them.That makes him Southends top scorer this season (albeit not for Sufc ).There are quite a few strikers playing in the leagues now who have been plucked from the obscurity of non league and are...

    John Hartson

    Just listening to the Radio 5 broadcast about excessive gambling with John Hartson, What compels people to lose everything to gambling? He says he'd spend days just gambling ignoring the wife and children; he would gamble on anything - even American football even though he admitted to knowing...
  16. Full XI: Played for both us & Col U?

    Was talking to a work colleague today about whether or not there was a full XI who played for us & Col U...is there? Knowing us, this will become a regular thing... Anyway, here's what we have so far: GK: DF: John White DF: Pat Baldwin DF: DF: Ben Coker MF: Sanchez Watt MF: MF: Luke Guttridge...
  17. Set Pieces

    As someone rightly pointed out in another thread that we seem to lack a presence in the box for corners, I thought a new thread to cover set pieces should be discussed. This season in particular we don't seem to be a threat from them. Not just corners but free kicks and throw-ons. Without...

    Straker, Payne

    Does it strike anyone else strange that we're offering contracts to players without knowing which league we're playing in? Especially when it's 2 players who aren't totally comfortable at this level, never mind a league higher.

    South Essex constituencies for 2015

    Our politics guru, knowing I'm an Essex man, has sent me the Ladbrokes odds for next year. Looks like the Conservatives have it all sealed up down that way... Southend West 1/50 Conservatives 25 Liberal Democrats 25 UKIP 100 Labour Rochford & Southend East 1/50 Conservatives 20 Labour 20 UKIP...
  20. We Are Top Of The League........At Being Caught Offside

    According to Opta Stats, before yesterday's match. Sadly there were several offside decisions against us yesterday with Barry and Kevan the main culprits. On many other occasions, our players in forward positions knowing that were offside, had to let the play go by them and couldn't challenge...
