    Pre-Match Thread Rochdale v Southend

    Putting today behind us, there are a lot of questions over the team, not including any potential signings (ha!) that might come in. For me I'd go; Oxley Coker - White - Kyprianou - Demetriou Kightly - Timlin - Yearwood - McLaughlin Cox - Wabo Subs: Bishop, Ba, Fortune, McGlashan, Ferdinand...

    Pre-Match Thread Chesterfield Fc v Southend United

    Getting this up a bit early as I've bunged a poll into the thread as well. Vote for your preference of starting eleven. I'm assuming that Ranger, White and Woody will be fit by the way, hence their inclusion. I doubt we will have 2.5k away fans for this game, but ye Gods, it is a seriously...
  3. The EU Result

    Ok, let's ignore your voting preference, what do you think the final verdict will be on the morning of June 24th?

    Plymouth Arygle V Wycombe Wanderers

    The other League Two playoff semi-final takes place at 19:45 tonight. Any preference as to who wins the first leg, and who do you think is most likely to take an advantage into the return fixture next week?

    Winter Coats - what's your preference?

    Thinking of investing in a new winter coat. I have seen a Fjallraven parka I quite fancy but it isn't waterproof which puts me off a bit. What's your style for the winter? Gore tex/Poor tex shell, anorak or a smart raincoat or wool overcoat?
  6. If Fossetts Farm is dead.....

    If the dream of a move to Fossetts Farm ends up dead in the water (let's face it, increasingly likely) what would you like to happen? My preference would be Ron sells, and a new owner looks to steady the ship, with a view to moving us to another site, with a modest, but improved stadium, maybe...

    The best Prime Ministers we never had

    Looking round at the various leaders of the political parties today, all of them leave me cold in terms of charisma, believability and leadership skills. I've never been a rabid political animal since I reached voting age but I do admit to having socialist tendencies in preference. It got me...
  8. Question Club Asks ---- Friday Night or Saturday Football ?

    I have a meeting with the Club in a few day's time. They would like to know, from those attending games, their preference of either Friday night or Saturday. Please do not vote if you cannot attend matches for any reason.

    Southend United - Shares

    Hi. I have been doing a little thinking and wanted to understand what 'Shares' of Southend United are actually in circulation and what the Shareholder actually owns a Share of. I know that may seem a little daft, and it may be as simple as the Shares are to own a piece (of capital) of Southend...
  10. Question Anthony Straker

    Can someone please tell me what I am missing concerning the abilities of Mr Straker. He may be a nice chappie but I am only interested in his footballing skills. I read Mr Brown rates him and is impressed with his performances. However since the first time of seeing Anthony Straker on a football...

    Friday night or Saturday afternoon?

    Preference for home games? Friday night for me.
  12. Help Please

    I have had a team going since Dec 07. I've ignored it for a couple of years and have finally broken through to England League IV. Not doing too badly and looks like i'll stay up. However, My key players are getting old and i'm not sure what to do. Any thoughts what I should do from here...

    Pre-Match Thread Exeter (A)

    In all the excitement of the JPT dates and the Brentford replay, we seem to have forgotten that theirs an important league match against a fellow promotion-chasing team (1 point and 1 place above us) tomorrow. The good news is that Jamie Cureton is suspended for them tomorrow (he always seems...

    5 Minutes of Crap

    Has anyone ever told you to type for 5 minutes and just write anything that comes into your head. I have done this a few times and it is almost like writing tourettes. Some crazy stuff seems to pops into your brain and everyone that has ever done it just cracks up at what they write. 5 Minutes...

    Daniel Bentley

    Looking at the fixture list it seems the cup starts next Tuesday. It seems to me as an outsider looking in that we are still not sure who our long term keeper is going to be. I cant help but think its about time Bentley was given a full run out in a game or two before we thrust him into...
  16. Selling Up

    After my foray in the cup has ended, it may be time for me to sell up and rebuild. I've an ageing side and struggling to meet wages. When are prices highest? I'm thinking of selling the likes of Raisani, who won't fetch much anyway, soon and then the most valuable players at the beginning of...

    I've been tempted into this again...

    About the same time last year, I started a Battrick team and then forgot about it. Hope to not do the same thing again. Went through some old threads for advice on startup and this is the squad I'm with at the mo after some early strengthening with 17 year olds for training (only spent £1000 or...
  18. Question Home Kit Socks - White or Blue?

    It seems we have reverted lately to wearing blue socks from white ae per how we started the season. Can anyone shed any light as to what the preference is. It does not seem to matter what colour the opposition are wearing like last night?

    Youth Pulls

    I'm assuming by the lack of thread there's nothing too exciting out there? Interesting one for me, I stuck a bit on batting hence the woeful but I think I might train to respectable then sell. Scuffer's tool tells me he's 6.97 so fingers crossed a single week pop and a nice sale price...
