    Weak link game

    Heard an interesting podcast from Malcolm Gladwell recently, and part of it talked of a theory how football is a weak-link game. Basically every football team is only as good as its worst player. Worse players give bad passes, make mistakes in defence etc. This is in contrast to basketball which...
  2. The Dome

    Just heard, not sure if its old news or not but I cant find it on the SZ, that parts of the Dome have been stolen & presumably sold off for scrap.......so now its rendered pretty much useless!! Anyone else confirm this?? I did hear it from one of the dads who son attends our academy If true...

    Jakub Sokolik

    When Jakub Sokolik was first with us on loan I thought he was a real prospect, and I would have loved to have him permanently with Southend. That didn't happen and from then on his career development has been on hold it seems, for a variety of reasons. Now he is finally back with us as a real...

    Goal Keepers and us.

    We have Oxley and the Smiths, or Smith and Oxley, or Oxley and Smith, dependent on your preferences. None of them are up to the standards that we have come to expect with Daniel Bentley so whoever becomes the regular custodian of our goal is going to require a lot of patience from fans and...

    Has Bentley's value dropped

    Has Daniel made a move away less likely with his displays of late? Will Ron regret not getting a good price when he had the chance? He knows that scouts are keeping a close eye on him, has this effected his game? The mistakes are racking up now and I believe he is not as good as last season. He...

    Highlights on Blues Player

    Has anyone watched the highlights for the Walsall game on Blues Player? I know most people won't - because of the result - but boy have they made some bad mistakes. At the start they said we drew against Oldham and then called us Gillingham at the start of the second half. Is this some kind...
  7. young players

    Fans please give the young players plenty of support. They are going to make some mistakes as they are still learning the game, only hope they learn from them. Getting on their backs will not help them or the team. I know its every fans right to shout what they think but please encourage them if...

    Dave Penney on the radio

    Did anyone else apart from us four in the car on the way home last night find Dave Penneys interview irritating? He certainly had verbal diarrhea,to quote one of his idiotic lines ' I can count Daniel Bentleys mistakes this season on one finger'! :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:

    Food mistakes

    I had a bit of a hangover Saturday morning and instead of going for a Sausage and Egg McMuffin meal I tried the Burger King equivalent. It was absolutely rank and came with chips instead of hash browns. If you ever feel tempted don't make the same mistake I did.

    Win or bust tonight

    Just wondering what people think regarding the result tonight. We have spent the past few weeks saying 'today is a must win game' etc. Well now we have finally dropped out of the play off places we really can not afford anymore mistakes. Unfortunately however, it is very difficult to see an end...
  15. Daniel Bentley ...... Time for a change ????

    I think that dan is a great shot stopper , but he has cost us so many goals this season through bad judgement , yeah he has the potential to be a good goalkeeper but he is still young for a keeper and still has a lot to learn ,but his confidence / inexperience has cost us even going back as far...
  16. BOXING: Khan vs Mayweather

    From what I've heard (as I said on another thread) this fight is apparently signed, and they're due to announce it soon, so I thought i'd create this for the build-up to the fight next May. So how do people see this going? Anyone give Khan a chance at all? I'm saying Mayweather wins by...
