    Remaining positive

    Even before I start writing this article I get a feeling it is hard to keep/get everyone feeling positive with the current situation of the squad/lack of signings. But we do need to remember, we do still have some good players, who can do a decent job. Okay. Steve Mildenhall- Massive...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    No Money? No need...

    I keep reading on here people talking about making money available for Tilson's transfer fund, and people arguing there is no money available but do we really need to spend any money on transfer fees during this transfer window? The reason I ask this is when you look at each individual position...

    Football Manager research - Phase 1 ratings

    For those FM fans interested, here are the ratings I have sent off for Phase 1 of the research process for FM 2010. CA = Current Ability (out of 200); e.g. Cristiano Ronaldo has a CA of 191. PA = Potential Ability (out of 200); in younger players, negatives used, where -10 = amazing potential...

    Question Where are the players going on holiday.

    Anyone got any ideas where the current crop of Blues stars are off on there holidays. I expect JFC and Laurent will be back to France. Clarkey revealed that will be getting his flat cap out and start bashing his wife up in anticipation of a week up north.He cant go too far a field as he has...

    Zone Update Sunrise to Sunset Charity Match - We did it!

    All, Just to confirm that SZFC succesfully completed their continuous match from sunrise yesterday to sunset last night. It was truly surreal to have kicked off with the sun about to rise above the goal we were attacking, and when the final whistle went almost 15 and a half hours later it was...

    Southend United Big Brother (2009)

    Cant remember who did this before maybe the oracle that is Yorkshire Blue. Below is a list of all the players on the last day of the seasons programme. Everyone starts with 10 points. Each day every poster can add +1 and -1 from the players. Once a player get to 0 he is evicted. The winner is...

    My end of season review.

    I was asked to write a review for college about a subject that inspired me, I didn't necessarily have to talk about how it inspired me but I just had to compile a 2000 word essay. So I chose to do a season review. Well here we are at the end of another season, although in the end we can feel...

    Show boating momemts yesterday

    Lower league football is more often than not about blood, guts, passion and desire but i had to comment of 2 moments of "a la premier league quality skill" yesterday. Of course besides the win I had real joy watching Laurents double turning drag back in the first half and Jef's flick on the by...

    Player of the year statistically

    There has been a lot of controversy over who should be player of the year this season as no-one has really stood out but I am going to use statistics to try and find a worthy winner using games played and sub appearances, goals conceded while on the pitch, goals scored, goals conceded per game...
  19. Ref Watch .... Oldham away

    For the penultimate refwatch of the season, the man in charge of this meaningless fixture is first year referee, Craig Pawson from Sheffield. It would be fair to say he hasn't set the world alight in his first year with a repution for incessant whistling amongst many other criticisms. Refereed...

    Question How big a job does Tilly have in the summer.

    Looking like coming 7-8 this season and I think most would agree not a bad return. It was always going to be hard to repeat last seasons sudo-sucess especially losing Gower, Mulgrew and Nicky "Back in league one" Bailey. My question is how big is Tilson's job this summer? For my mind its...
