    By Saturday the 16th

    Huge week coming up. My gut feeling is that we are not strong enough to finish top 6. We were always chasing after a poor start to the season. Having got into that top 6 we have put in two poor performances against mediocre teams have seen us drop away. We then face 3 tricky games. This...

  5. The Pitch

    Anyone else think today's pitch was a bit of a joke. All players slipping all over the shop and it was cut to pieces. Surely can't help with it being narrow!!!

    the wrong foot

    Whilst I admire our solidity and workrte, one thing that annoys me about the way PB sends out is teams is his tendency to play wide midfielders on the wrong foot. I'm sure he'd say it keeps the team narrow and solid etc, but it means we're not seeing the best of players like Worrall and Weston -...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-2 Walsall

    Well, that was a reality check. Appalling team selection from Brown, no idea at all how he can justify dropping Worrall again, he stood out on Tuesday and after coming on last week. Way too narrow and they took advantage. They showed the difference and simply took the chances they had. We...

    A SUDDEN REALISATION and one or two other facts....

    Am I the only one who feels rather depressed this morning. It's nothing to do with the performance last night, more to do with the dawning realisation that IF we could achieve the unthinkable, of victories in our last four games.........87 points would quite possibly not be enough to get us...

  10. Ref Watch ........ Burton H

    Tomorrow night's referee, Charles Breakspear from Walton-on-Thames, has refereed two Southend matches before and in both of them he sent off an opposing player. Sadly we only got a defeat and a draw (and subsequent penalty shoot-out defeat) to show for our numerical advantage. So, third time...

  12. Removing a fridge

    All, I need to remove a fridge from a very narrow gap - in fact the old fridge was "kicked" into place as the dumbass plasterer boarded the wall when I told him not to. There is literally NO space between wall and fridge. Now I've been told I can't chop it in half with a chainsaw - has anyone...

    Pre-Match Thread Chesterfield v southend united

    Time to look forward to next weekend. I was delighted to have gone to the league fixture at the start of the season and to see how well we can play, even if, in the end, a result was snatched from us. To all those going up have a great time and have a pint in the Derby Tup for me! (What was the...
