    Team of Southend United "nice" people

    Reading the thread about Luke Prosser (injured again, poor chap) reminded me that not all our ex-players are people that you would ideally like to be sharing a seat with on a train. So how about a team of "nice" people. I've got Luke Prosser and Chris Powell in defence and David Crown up front...
  2. Luke Prosser

    Poor old Luke not having much luck on the injury front. Having missed out on the end of last season from November onward after having to have a knee operation he has now had to have another and will miss the start of this season being out for another 6-8 weeks.:sad:
  3. Transfer window - post mortem

    I've tried to match players who have come in/left by their position, and then by their age/squad role (e.g. young prospect rather than guaranteed starter). I've not included Moussa or Paul Smith In - 9 players Out - 9 players Goalkeepers: - Oxley replaces Bentley - jury is out on whether Oxley...

    The new guys

    So, we have had something like 14 players leave and 7 join, with 2 youths stepping up. We have got rid of - 1 keeper. Dan Bentley has been replaced by Mark Oxley. Is Oxley better than Bentley? No. I'm not even sure he's better than Ted Smith. 2 defenders. Prosser and Bolger have been...

    In a straight match up between the players gone( or just about to be gone ) against those who remain , i reckon we still have a really decent team left at the club ....... Who would win ??? ....................................BENTLEY...

    Glen Rea

    Someone said that Glen Rea was at the game on Saturday, I wonder if there is a chance of him rejoining us when the loan window re-opens? Obviously we're a defender down since Prosser left, and Rea gives the advantage of also being able to play in the DM role too and he obviously knows the club...
  8. Another central defender to go? Thompson linked with move

    MK Dons could make a late move to sign Southend United defender Adam Thompson before Monday’s transfer deadline, according to reports. The Mirror claims the Dons and Championship rivals Huddersfield Town are interested in the 23-year-old Northern Ireland international. Thompson graduated from...

    Would Prosser have made your first XI?

    Now I know theres a lengthy thread on Prosser and I don't want this to turn into a thread bashing him but I'm curious as I'm seeing a lot of people sad to see him leave. If everyone was fit, would he have made your starting 11? Straight yes or no

    Brown: Players will have to leave

    Not particularly subtle, Prosser, Hurst? Could be an interesting week and a half...

    Leyton Orient U21 0-1 SUFC U21

    U21s have a game against Leyton Orient today. Luke Prosser is the only senior player in the u21 team! 8 senior players in the Orient side. Also a trialist it looks like for blues, with Jordan Gibbons playing. Who is contracted for Yeovil Town. I believe it is him. Here is the team sheet below...

    Are we punching well above our weight!?

    Not very often I do a sensible post but from time to time I can string a sentence or two together. Now it's been a pretty disappointing start to 2016, after an incredible 2015 whereby we only lost 10 league games in a calendar year! Whatever level you are playing at, that's good going! The...

    Latest Rumours Brown: Prosser wants to leave

    According to Chris Phillips, more in tomorrow's Echo. Seems to confirm the rumours regarding events post Swindon. Shame as has always been professional, committed and passionate, but I don't think he's good enough for this level unfortunately and will be better off getting first team football...

    Breaking News Coker out for 4-5 weeks

    According to CP. 687022674116239361 Hasn't seemed right since the knock he picked up before Boxing Day, can't get my head around why he wasn't rested at some point. Guess it could be an operation or treatment on that same injury which will rule him out? Not clear from CP's tweet. Wonder if PB...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Doncaster Rovers

    Suspect there will be changes for this one, possibly Barrett losing his place, Coker may well depend on his fitness. With Timlin supposedly available again and Deegan coming off the bench on Monday perhaps there will be midfield changes. Will Pig get a chance to prove himself before his loan...
  19. Caption comp time

    Just seen this pic on the OS advertising tickets over the Christmas period. Surely in need of some SZ input as to what Timlin is doing with his hand, what Prosser might be shouting or what Deegan is thinking? Perfect for a caption or two?
  20. Hunt back for Bradford. Injured players update.

    Noel Hunt is back at training and he should be ready to play a part in the Bradford game. Weston and McLaughlin are both suffering bad ankle bruising and are still in pain when pressure is put on the ankle. Deegan, Worrall and Timlin are almost back, but will not be risked in the behind closed...
