  1. Kevin Hogg

    Going against popular opinion.

    EVERYBODY (including me) has been crying out for the pace, energy and enthusiasm of youth in the England team. 2012 we looked completely out of ideas and just managed to grind results before losing on penalties to a team that destroyed us..but drew the game. Since yesterday morning all the...

    Where is best place you have lived?

    For me it has to be Great Malvern in Worcestershire where I spent 1999 to 2001 as a contractor. Amazing scenery, great pubs, cheap rents and a very relaxed pace of life.
  3. Prem loanee may have saved us

    We had Woodrow...No thank's We have Barney.....Jury still out Step forward Mr Loza a young hungry untried youngster with pace to burn who just may of turned it round for Phil and us. Wonderful debut which had everything. At last the prem have loaned us something special.

    Official Match Thread Southend United vs Oxford United

    Team line ups to follow. Can we perform in front of Sky and will the new manager hoodoo hit us?

    Is No News.....

    I can't see any official updates on the OS since Feb'2013 (maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place.) So do you guys think that lack of news is a sign of obstacles & problems causing delays, or do you think that everything is quietly running along albeit at a slow pace?

    Uche Ikpeazu

    Hi Everyone! Watford fan here. I saw Chris Phillips tweet earlier that Phil Brown was at our training ground on Tuesday watching our friendly against Northampton as we have offered another one of our players for you to take on loan. Not sure who that might be yet but my money is on Uche...
  7. Northampton Town: From a Cobblers perspective!

    Hi Guys, Cobblers fan in Peace! Thought I would try and gain a little insight before our game on saturday, this week is already dragging without any midweek football! I wasnt to sure how you guys would fare early doors, but seems so far so good! Hows Phil Brown done since hes come in? He is...
  8. Breaking Bad - US/Netflix pace discussion

    Woah.... 5.9 was ammmaaazzzing!! anyone else up to speed??:omg:
  9. Players on loan

    Just hoped someone could clear it up up for me can we get players on loan? To be honest I look at our teamand for sure we are light on numbers but I honestly feel that all we need is forte I think with our best 11 as it stands is good enough, I know we will get injuries and suspensions but for...

    Don Cowan

    Currently trial and judging by this video he definitely looks a handful, bags of pace and strength. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rbBgDZ-kZeA&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DrbBgDZ-kZeA
  11. Team for 2013/14

    Without knowing any of the insider gossip and titbits we do have a nucleus of a squad for next season. Hopefully all injuries and operations will be sorted ready for the early early Coca cola Cup start With a few returnees my starting line up would be; GK; Bentley RB; Sean Clohessey RCB; Mark...
  12. FM - New Idea

    I tried FM13 for a bit, but never got into it or enjoyed it, so started back on FM07 for a bit. I've done that for several seasons and got Southend to win the Prem, now thought of a new challenge. With all the talk on the "If Southend cease to exist" thread about starting a new team, it gave me...

    Summer clearout

    So as we are now 100 percent looking at next season I believe a big old clearout is required. I am certainly not looking to start a big slagging off of players just an honest assessment of the team and where they as individuals and as a team have slumped from the team that obtained 83 points...
  14. Yorkshire Blue

    Team for Saturday?

    I think I'd go: Smith Clohessy Cresswell Prosser Straker Hurst Makandawire Laird Leonard Tomlin Assombalonga Subs: Bentley, Mohsni, Lund, Reeves, Corr, Eastwood, Frosty the Snowman The reasoning being (1) that's about as close to the shape (and team) who beat Rochdale at home as we're going...
  15. Change of Manager

    I agree PS has done a sound job for several seasons however, a change is needed now. A young Manager with young ideas. Selecting a team with pace that plays a passing game. My guess is RM is already searching out such a Manager. Bring back the passing game to Roots Hall, secure promotion and...
  16. Distraction .... ?

    "Southend United boss Paul Sturrock is worried the distraction of next month's Johnstone's Paint Trophy final is causing his side's erratic form. The Shrimpers have slipped off the play-off pace after winning only two of their last eight League Two matches. Following Tuesday's 2-0 home...
  17. IloveShrimp

    Were were fortunate really!

    After the fantastic night that was Wednesday, I have to say that Luggy really got away with it imo. Both goals against us were down to two defenders who in my opinion at least one should not have been playing Barker and Phillips, also when Orient hit the bar it was down to Barkers defensive...

    Peggy Lokando

    As a 16 year old, Clasford Stirling was quoted as saying, "Peggy Lokando is the most naturally gifted player I've ever seen. Even at the age of 10 he was so confident in his ability, his balance, his turn of pace - it was just poetry. I saw him after he'd been on the bench for the reserves...
  19. Coughlan !!!

    Surely Coughlan can fill in at the back tonight. He has fight and grit just what we need tonight. We know has no pace and his fitness will not be that sharp, but a then either has Barry Corr got pace or experiance at the back ......just a thought!!!

    The next two games are vital

    Looking at the league table it would have to be said that the next 2 games are vital if we are to keep pace with the top 3 whilst fending off the chasing pack of which chesterfield are one of. We may well be unbeaten but at the same time we are picking up a lot of draws. We have to be looking...
