    Next three game barometer and injuries

    How many points from the next three? And any news on Cox/Ranger? I'm predicting draw Wombles, Win Charlton, Lose Posh but the 4 from 9 will keep us in the mix. 5 or more and I'll start thinking about booking a tentative play off flight

    Just a tad dangerous.......

    Not really a thread...just a comment. I was passing Boots & Laces at just before 5.00pm this evening on my way to B&Q. As I drove past the entrance I noticed in my peripheral vision a large group of guys all dressed in dark sports clothing standing right on the roadside...where there are no...

    Today was our best 11 IMO

    I personally feel that brown had his best 11 players out there today and it just goes to show, it's been a long time coming but that 11 are capable of holding their own and beating most teams in this league . It's a no brainier but Ranger is the key to where's we finish this season - IF he...
  4. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Bury 1 - 4 Southend United

    No-lose November continues ------------- please give your views and ratings for today's victory.
  5. Poor management

    Let's be honest, Last night the result had little meaning,win lose or draw we were through ! My beef is the rules state 5 first team players must play,Brown started with Fortune and Cox who both have clearly demonstrated they cannot score regularly ,then Cox is hooked in peculiar circumstances...
  6. Which Shrimperzone poster should replace Brown?

    South Bank Hank + Easy-going style with a good sense of humour + Would improve the pre-match music - Lost a pond full of koi carp, so would he lose the dressing room? MK Shrimper + Lives in Milton Keynes, so knows how to deal with adversity + Discounted train travel for fans - Questionable work...
  7. Best for me or for SUFC

    Quick question, not arguments, because as some have alluded to, you would dislike PB regardless ... Would you rather go on a run of 3 wins and 2 draws in the next 5 games OR lose enough to see PB sacked ?

    Time To Get Fit Or Die Trying - Middle Aged Cycling

    As some of you will appreciate there comes a time in life when no matter what you do diet wise one cannot seem to lose that middle age paunch/one pack that seems to have suddenly appeared from nowhere, which is the situation I now find myself in, so at the ripe old age of ** it's time for a...

    Coker's future?

    So what do think is going to happen with Coker's future? Chris Phillips stating on twitter yesterday that Brown had plenty to say about it, regarding Reading, but he didn't state what Brown said. Personally, I think it would be a huge blow to lose him, I think it's a lot harder finding a good...
  10. Is this a bet you can't lose?

    With the Euro's here, you may have noticed lots of free bet offers being given out by the bookmakers. These free bets can actually be turned into money by placing bets on all outcomes of a football match by using a method called matched betting. You can currently get an amazon kindle book for...
  11. Phil Brown and his systems

    Has anyone else noticed that when we lose, Brown comes out with "it wasn't about systems".....but yet when we win he's very quick to highlight the new system he's implemented having worked on it in training all week?! Utter nonsense. I've never known a manager over complicate a game of football...
  12. When we score 2 or more !

    Some constantly blame the defence when ever we lose,yet we play allowing the oppo to launch wave upon wave of attacks because we sit deep and have zero outball,it's not rocket science. Here are the games we have scored 2 or more under Phil. Played 55....won 41...drew 8....lost 6....gf 127...

    Piotr Malarczyk - Will he get a game

    Piotr Malarczyk has been signed until the end of the season, which is now only 6 games away. I read in the match day programme that he wanted to see what we were about before he agreed to play for us but what is the point in signing someone that has to see us play before he decides if he wants...
  14. Another central defender to go? Thompson linked with move

    MK Dons could make a late move to sign Southend United defender Adam Thompson before Monday’s transfer deadline, according to reports. The Mirror claims the Dons and Championship rivals Huddersfield Town are interested in the 23-year-old Northern Ireland international. Thompson graduated from...

    Predicted scores for Col Ewe match

    The Prediction League is a bit of light fun and perhaps not to be taken too seriously but........ In recent weeks with the demise of Col Ewe predictions for them to lose have been getting higher with 8-1 and then 10-1 predictions made. Then for the Col Ewe v Barnsley match someone predicted...

    League one games tonight.

    Millwall losing to Burton. As it stands we go up a place to 7th on goal difference, get in! Be nice for Millwall to lose to dent their confidence before our encounter on Tuesday. In addition, how well are Burton doing this season?!
  17. Anyone lose Keys at Blackpool Game?

    Some keys which also had a Southend key ring was found at the BP garage in West Road after the game v Blackpool last Saturday. If anyone seems to have lost them then let me know and will pass you onto the person who found.

    Pre-Match Thread v Blackpool Saturday 21 November

    A minimum 6-0 home win should be the target. Blackpool are in dire straits on and off the pitch. I had the misfortune of seeing them get knocked out of the FA Cup at Barnet the other week (doing the 92 thing) - Barnet were poor but Blackpool were woeful. Hardly any shots on goal, passing...

    Russian Plane crash now suspected bomb. What next?

    Wasn't sure whether to put here or in Politics forum. I'm starting to lose faith. The war on terror is 14 years old and I would argue that terrorism on a global scale is worse now than it was in 2001 Wiki is trying to tell me otherwise but I don't feel the world to be a safer place...
