    Question End of Season Q&A

    Morning peoples. Will the Trust be organising an end of season Q&A with SCP and RM? Think it would be a great idea but appreciate these things can be tricky with holidays etc. Keep up the great work. Life Member No.408

    Aaron Lennon

    My sincere best wishes to Aaron Lennon, who last night was taken into hospital, re Mental Health issues. Many people will think or comment, why ? He has money, cars, a wonderful life style many of us would want, but just because he has these finer things of life, does not mean he is happy...

    Happy Birthday to ........

    Bob Cratchitt if still lurking. Oh and me :smile: The BIG 50 today. Honoured my last day in the forties by playing football, our season has started. I don't celebrate birthdays. Not miserable but I think it is second only in being overrated as an event to New Year's Eve. I do celebrate other...

    John white and the captaincy

    I do fear for JW this season. He is a good steady pro who always gives 100%, but the fact of the matter is that Demetriou is a better player than JW has ever been. JW is now second choice right back. He is not great at centre back and is definitely no left back on yesterdays massacring. With...

  6. Question next season

    With the impending visit of the farm handlers on Saturday, I'm curious to peoples thoughts on the best atmosphere you have experienced in a pub either pre or post a Southend game. Personally for me walking into the Railway 2013 pre Orient in the JPT. One Step beyond came on and the whole place...

    Players best bits

    So now the season is over and we have been promoted, let's have peoples views on what sticks out for them for different players throughout the season. I'll start with with Prosser's last ditch tackle against Luton at home. He had come on as a sub when Coker got sent off and he was thrown in at...

    Potential Pitch Invasion

    Just wondering what peoples thoughts were on the potential for a pitch invasion on Saturday IF WE GET PROMOTED. As a dad with young children i am not a huge fan, not because im a kill joy, but just that at the end of the game i would rather be able to celebrate with the players and for my kids...
  12. Best performance in blues shirt

    Appreciate that this is probably the wrong time to do this, what with a number of new signings arriving at the club, but wondered on peoples thoughts of our current squads best individual games for the club. I've obviously left out the new arrivals and a few others who have barely featured...

Some on here can do nothing BUT criticise,whether it be the players or the manager, or other peoples threads. How about we all try to post some threads without moaning( us aussies call it...

    Half full or half empty?

    Before I start, I want it noted that this is not a thread bashing Brown. I'm just interested to get peoples views after PB's 2 games in charge, how do you look at it, 2 games without defeat or 2 games without a win? Is your glass half full or half empty?
