    Super Franny Laurent

    Is it just me or do I reckon he's going to be the dark horse of League 1 next season? I sure as hell hope so. I pray he can fill the void left by Theo when he goes, I love having our own version of Paulo Wanchope at Roots Hall...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-2 Leceister City

    Steve Mildenhall 7 Didn't play badly but didn't have to much to do, couldn't have done anything about either goal really Simon Francis 4 Worst performance this year. Gave the ball away easily, no need to handball for pen (which was harsh), didn't mark at all, weak tackling, poor passing, etc...

    Official Match Thread Southend United Reserves v Col Ewe From The East Greens

    Currently 2-1 to Southend. Laurent opened the scoring on 18 after a break on the left had him unmarked and he slotted home from 10 yards. Col Ewe equalised 10 minutes later after a break down the right resulted in a 2-on-1 with the keeper, it was a case of a simple pass and tap-in. Southend...

    Question Is Laurent much cop?

    When I first saw Laurent I thoughy he was immense. A goal almost everytime he touched it seemed like a reasonable return from our French chum. However as the weeks have rolled on I am less and less impressed by him. My main issues are. * Big man who never wins any headers. * Goes down to...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Hereford United 0-1 Southend United

    Just back from Hereford. Didnt think we would edge it once Laurent missed that chance, but we certainly got stronger as the match went on and probably just deserved it, although the penalty was right in front of me, and I would have been pretty peeved to have that given against us. I reckon he...

    Pre-Match Thread Brighton v Southend

    Don't know if you want this to be a Pre-match thread or Official MD thread Mods, I'll leave it up to you to decide. We've had a predicted score one but not teams. Scannell apparently has a virus and is not travelling (bit of a sicknote isn't he?), Walker, Revell and Freedman all still out...

    Pre-Match Thread brighton Predictions

    I'm predicting a 2-0 win for the blues with Robinson and Laurent scoring. I also think Mildenhall will save a penalty at some point.
