    Paul Smith - 'his worse keeper eva' and other similar ramblings

    A thread to redefine goalkeeping standards and stop agendas cluttering up match report threads with pages and pages of arguments about Southend's number one. Please sound off here rather than make every thread an argument about Smith.

    Blog update

    It's always better to have a laugh at your own mistakes first I suppose... http://sowhogetscustodyofthenectarpoints.blogspot.pt/2012/10/doh-oh-dear.html
  3. STURROCK go and do one

    Just finished watching the match on Sky. Second half we showed what we can do but too late because yet again sturrock got the first half tactics horribly wrong. I have had enough of him and his mistakes. Senior, experienced manager? Go now sturrock, dont look back, dont prolong it. Lets get a...

    Stupid manager mistakes

    sturrock has made silly moves
  5. The story line's been written

    Freddy back to push us over the line. Moshni (our Tevez) learnt from his mistakes and back in the fold. This has all happend at the right time. More confident than ever that we will go up.
  6. Motivators

    Its reasonable to expect that a part of the managers role is to motivate his team, but once the players step onto the pitch it's down to them. Southend are currently fortunate enough to have a number of senior players in the side who have done enough and seen enough to motivate the side around...
  7. Dodgy Keeper.

    What's happened to Morris? He looked a very good keeper earlier on in the season. Now he looks well dodgy as the costly mistakes are coming thick and fast. Not just blaming him by the way, as a lot of the other players are having a mare as well.

    Peter Gilbert

    Does anyone want to give him coaching on passing, defending, not moaning at other players for his own mistakes or just genuine football abilities? He is without doubt the weak link in the side
  9. Paul Sturrocks Interview on BBC essex Tonight .......

    How honest was PS's interview on the Radio tonight ??!! I felt that is was a true reflection on on the evening.... Too many players not doing their jobs, Too many back passes He has made mistakes, but the players must also look at themselves as well He sounded very cheesed off, and said...

    A considered opinion

    There is an air of inevitability about defeat against Bradford on Friday evening, and when (not if) this occurs the time for big decisions will have been reached. That will be six games without a win, and, at least 12 without a good performance. For a team that was top of the league, two games...

    Mirror mirror on the wall whose the daftest of them all?

    Listening to BBC Essex on the way back Luggy said all needed to think hard about their efforts tonight and that he himself would be taking a look in the mirror. Well, sorry Mr S, but despite my deep respect for what you have so far done for SUFC, if you take an honest look I think you will find...

    Blair Sturrock

    I'm fed up with the constant sniping about Blair Sturrock from certain supporters with chips on their shoulders. If you've actually been paying attention this season you'll have spotted how Sturrock contributes: the way he has the vision to switch play, the way he stretches defences with his...
  14. Question Blame ?

    So will RM ever accept any responsibility for the demise of our club over recent years ? So far he's publicly blamed the following people; The Banks HMRC Paul Brush Steve Tilson Adam Barrett In addition GK made negative remarks about Alex Revell Can anyone point me in the direction of an...
  15. Paul Sturrock

    Whilst I have been signed up on SZ for sometime my posts are few and far between, I am more of an observer. Some recent posts particularly after defeats are so negative. In my opinion I think PS is a very good experienced manager at this level and we should be very grateful to have him...
  16. people who want rid of sturrock are mad!!!

    look at his record we lost only 3-2 to top of the league with moshni (possibly are best defender)injured. we played not that bad and have to consider sturrock had to pick up what he could with no money to spend all at the start of the season. yes he's probably realised he s made mistakes but...

    Just a thought...

    There have been plenty of people on here (probably correctly) stating that certain players won't come to us because Ron didn't pay the players last season and our reputation is shot. I wonder if the club also has a reputation for having a home crowd booing, jeering and generally getting on the...

    A rant.

    1. Chanting '****ing Useless to our own player who puts his ****ing heart into his performances, doing what nobody else wants to do, the ****ing dirty work. 2. Cheering when Rhys Evans catches the ball. Brilliant. 3. Constant moaning. 4. Chanting the Seagull louder than anything else. 5...
  19. A bit of respect and perspective?

    So we got a great win last night. And Paul Sturrock has assembled a new squad of players in a relatively short period of time. And it's all different and new and there's some promise of what might be achieved. I also have a lot of regard for what Paul Sturrock has achieved as a manager at...

    Food For Thought.

    I've been a bit quiet on here for a while, frankly the whole political arena is depressing. Even so, I've busy doing what I do. I thought I'd share some thoughts.... The Recession The recession was caused, in essence, by the collapse of the banking industry that took a gung-ho approach to...
