    Dru Yearwood

    What a great first season he's had but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here... we've been here before with promising yoofs. Frank Moussa? Kane Ferdinand? Both had oodles of promise, never fulfilled it. But lets just say he is the "real deal". I don't think it'll be us that sells him...

    Memory Lane Playing in the wrong colours

    Inspired by this snippet I was unaware of what instances can you think of when Southend played in the "wrong" colours. A few to start you off: Burnley away mid 90s - we played in Burnley's away kit. I think Bressington got sent off and we lost 5-2 or something. Walsall at home to celebrate...
  3. Moussa

    Don't think he's at Walsall, anyone know where he's at now? Assuming injured?

    Question Are we currently better or worse equipped for the Championship than 2005/2006?

    Was talking to a mate about this the other day and trying to decide if we are currently better or worse equipped for the Championship than we were when winning League One in the 2005/2006 season. 2005/2006: Goalkeepers: Darryl Flahavan, Bart Griemink Defenders: Duncan Jupp, Che Wilson, Lewis...

    Bradford, Swindon and Walsall

    So here we are in the top half of the table and remarkably (given some of our games earlier in the season) we are only 3 points off the play-offs. The next 3 games are as interesting as any - Bradford at the top of the table, Swindon just above the relegation places and Warsaw (and Moussa) in...
  6. Transfer window - post mortem

    I've tried to match players who have come in/left by their position, and then by their age/squad role (e.g. young prospect rather than guaranteed starter). I've not included Moussa or Paul Smith In - 9 players Out - 9 players Goalkeepers: - Oxley replaces Bentley - jury is out on whether Oxley...

    Franck Moussa

    So Franck Moussa has moved to Walsall ........ and according to an article on the B.B.C. an important consideration was the fact that the Walsall manager is an experienced physiotherapist and that the manager has "a good history of dealing with injuries" ............. which rather begs the...

    The new guys

    So, we have had something like 14 players leave and 7 join, with 2 youths stepping up. We have got rid of - 1 keeper. Dan Bentley has been replaced by Mark Oxley. Is Oxley better than Bentley? No. I'm not even sure he's better than Ted Smith. 2 defenders. Prosser and Bolger have been...

    Two or more spells

    I've put a list below of all those who have had two spells with SUFC. Did they play better on their first or second spell? Have I missed anyone out? (not including those who were only on loan for first time, e.g. Bellotti, Sawyer, Macca, Selley, Stannard etc) Paul Roberts 86-7 and 88-90 Roy...

    In a straight match up between the players gone( or just about to be gone ) against those who remain , i reckon we still have a really decent team left at the club ....... Who would win ??? ....................................BENTLEY...

  14. Question To Mr Phil Brown

    Latest Rumours The Moose is back training with the Blues

    Chris Phillips just posted the news that Franck Moussa is training with Southend at the moment. If it is a trial, would we want to sign a player like him with such a bad injury record? I think if it works out, he would be a great acquisition but it has to be a big if looking at his record over...
  18. Ref Watch ..... Peterborough (H)

    The man in charge of tomorrow's early kick off will be Simon Hooper from Swindon refereeing Southend for the sixth time in his 8th season as a League referee. On Swindon’s books as a junior he was released at the age of 16 and turned his attentions towards refereeing. He also represented...

  20. Ref Watch ....... Dagenham & Redbridge A

    Referee's travelling expenses will be low on Saturday, with the man in charge being Frederick Graham who hails from Orsett - pretty much midway between the two clubs. For geographical reasons, other than pre-season friendlies, neither Dagenham nor Southend have seen much of Fred over his many...
