    Theo Robinson

    Am i alone on here in thinking Robinson is slighty, maybe, just a little incy-wincy bit crap? He never looks to pass when the pass is on. He always tries to find a way to shoot to the detriment of others in a much better position. His control leaves alot to be desired and he can't hit a cow's...

    Zone Update Cult Zeros - Franck Moussa added

    All, in light of his goal at the Care in the Community Stadium last Saturday, I have asked the boys at Cult Zeros to add Franck Moussa to the Southend section. He's now there, so if you want a Moussa t-shirt, with your own choice of slogan, click on the link in my signature. The Moose can be...
  4. Report from the Training Ground

    Great watching the squad train today as I have only ever seen them do it on the Blues Day in the summer. Freedman ( with his new beard ) and Laurent took it nice and slow at first, but Dougie did a bit more running and had a good one to one session with the physio and looks like he would be...

    Huge Result Yesterday

    Make no mistake i have critised the players on here when i feel that they have under achieved and also have critised Tilson to on some of his desicions he has made this season. Its only fair then that the boys get praised up for a great result last night which IMO puts a nice gap now between...

    Colchester United vs Southend United
 21/2/2009 The big one, The Essex derby. The sides drew 3-3 in November at Roots Hall. Southend had let 2-0 with goals from Peter Clarke and Francis Laurent but Colchester fought back to lead 3-2 until Jean Francois Christophe scored in the last minute of...

    Reoccuring Themes...

    After looking back to last nights events it made me realise how many times we lose 1-0 at home and how few times we win 1-0 away from home. Most teams come to Roots Hall looking for a point by putting men behind the ball, time-wasting etc etc and how we struggle to break them down. Crewe must of...

    Square pegs in round holes

    I, like everyone else was gutted we lost one nil at home to Crewe. They came for a nil nil, but exceeded their expectations and got a 1-0 victory with their only shot on goal, a free kick The first half we were awful. The second half was better, and i was pleased by the substitution of Laurent...

  18. Freedman Overated

    simple. dougie is overrated. despite the odd flick and occasional through ball he does not do a lot. fair enough, nice pass to set up betsy and scored a nice goal 2 weeks ago, but he is simply past it. no commitment, no passion. a true lazy player, yet he is one of the top wage earners at the...

    Your thoughts on Christope et Laurent

    I am writing a piece on JFC and Francis Laurent and was wondering if anyone on here had anything to say that I could possibly use as quotes or anything like that. Thanks
