    How did our Dorian play today ??

    Couldn't make the game today , so just curious how the boy did , i actually thought that Tilly done the right thing in moving Barrett to left back , yes a little harsh on herd , but just for the height factor and experience i'd have Barrett . To keep a clean sheet seems to me that he played...

    Paul Furlong (report from Barnet )

    As I'm at uni in Exeter at the moment and my housemate comes from Barnet, we decided to go to Exeter v Barnet this afternoon. Although I'd rather have been at Roots Hall to see us pick up a valuable 3 points, I was looking forward to the chance to see Paul Furlong in action (along with two...

    Palace opinions on Barrowdale

    Nothing special... Gary Borrowdale? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Very sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section... If so, please could one of the mods move this to the appropriate section? We (QPR) have recently signed him on loan...
  4. Scannell: make or break time

    With our less than bare-bones squad, Scannell should at least start on Saturday. This is his massive opportunity. Will he take it? The jury is definitely out. I'm not sure he has the pace or quality to make it. I'd love to be proved wrong. TBH he's not had much football, but often looks...

    Pre-Match Thread Toellandbacks Leeds preview

    A big game for both Tuesday night sees the Shrimper’s visit the home of football, Elland Road. A game that is vitally important for both teams although for very different reasons. Leeds are after 3 points to push themselves closer to the promotion hunt and Southend need to get back to winning...

    Question The Yeovil Game

    Do you not think that the Yeovil game was a prime example of a game that a player like Mark Gower would have thrived and 'ran the show' so to speak. The game was crying out for a long range screamer or some pace on the wing! So the question is are we lacking a flair player?
  7. Possible Target

    BBC Sport is reporting that transfer listed Charlton striker Chris Dickson is being targeted by both Gillingham boss Mark Stimson and a club in a higher league. He scored 11 in 14 appearances during a loan spell at the Gills last season. He would surely be an excellent signing and has pace to...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend Seek To Add To Scolari's Woes

    Don't panic on the first line, you haven't got the day wrong. This is for tomorrow's paper! Six months ago, who could have believed that Chelsea would see tonight’s trip to Southend as anything other than a formality? For just a brief period at the start of his reign, Luiz Felipe Scolari...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Stan Collymore

    The next man up for election to the Southend United Hall of Fame is Stanley Victor Collymore. I think Stan might be the first man to divide opinion sufficiently to have a few no votes. After all, longevity is one of the criteria and Stan only graced a Southend shirt thirty-three times and...
  10. Absolutely Buzzing with Excitement

    I have to say I am raring to go for tomorrow's game. It is all I can think about! We have had it so lucky as a club financially speaking and as fans to come up against United, Spurs (twice) and as of tomorrow Chelsea in a few season's! The anticipation from my part and my family who are also...

    Paul Terry

    Just wrote a thread about signing soild players etc. winning 50 - 50's. And thought he is the guy we should get. I'll be the first to admit he is a dirty player and ultimately a bit of a ******, but thats exactly what we need. Someone, who always gets in the oppositions way, someone who always...

    Secret of success

    I think sometimes both our clubs are in danger of making this league more difficult than it has to be. Yes you respect your opponents but not too much. NO team in this league is un-beatable. From the games I have seen the key to winning games is getting the very basics right. You need two strong...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 8 - Libertine

    This week, recently exiled Andy (Libertine), out in Australia, answers the questions. Below is a picture of Andy and his kids at Surfers Paradise. 1) How long have you been an exile? A) Since August this year. My last game was Millwall away and I flew out the following Monday. 2) Why did...
  14. screwed up by the loan system ... .... .... ..

    i remember the demand on this board for Tilson to get some decent players in and to use the loan system (which I hate) to our advanatge..... and hes done well in attracting some quality young players .... who then have to learn how to play in real games against experienced pros with a lot at...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Chris Powell

    Fighting Talk on Radio 5 Live has a segment called Defending the Indefensible where pundits or comedians (note Mark Lawrensen the two are separate) are given an outrageous statement that they have to somehow justify for 30 seconds of airtime. Now I've always fancied my chances of playing devil's...

    Evening Wasted On Pointless Big Cup

    Through, but only just. Chelsea survived a scare to book their place in the next round of the Champions League, but their progression was anything from straightforward on another nervy night for Luiz Felipe Scolari. Roma's victory over Bordeaux meant that this result was academic, but there was...
