  1. How far away is Bentley ?

    Before people rush back with comments like "he's nowhere near ready" etc etc , I get all of that and agree. Just thinking though with Butland getting a serious injury and working on the premise that England would take 3 keepers to Euro 2016. If Hart were also to get injured ( or not recover...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Wigan Athletic

    With the news that Wozza is "out" then the team that starts will have to be adapted. I expect PB not to change the GK or defenders. up front, no changes either. If Westie, Mac or Tims recover they will go in the side; if not then Pig to start (Wozza's place).

    Question Data recovery

    Can anyone recommend someone who can do data recovery from a failed external hard drive? Preferably in the Leigh/Southend area.

    Under 18's Match Report Blues Youths Lose At MK Dons - Saturday 14th March 2015

    Southend United U18s produced a much-improved performance away to Milton Keynes Dons, but they were unable to recover from conceding an early goal and eventually returned to Essex having been beaten 3-0. Rob Craven's match report can be found here.
  5. Can we recover mental strength for Saturday?

    Picture this. Blues batter a 10-man Dons for 70 mins, and still score only once. Of all people, Adam B equalises at the death, and penalty king Danny B guesses wrong for all four of theirs. In essence, the team have done nothing wrong, and I include Phil Brown, but still we lose. Remembering...
  6. Guy Branston

    "Plymouth Argyle have announced that they have agreed a deal to allow Guy Branston to leave Home Park. The 35-year-old centre-back is suffering from an ankle injury which has effectively ended his season and after manager John Sheridan told the former Rotherham man that he will not be offered...

    Health and Safety Gone Mad

    To use that good old Daily Mail expression this is Health and Safety Gone Mad. I am halfway through cooking a microwave curry. I put it on full power for four minutes, and the instructions say peel back film lid, stir and recover. I didn't think it was that much of an exertion to be honest, but...

    Rumours from last night

    This Thursday, Tara Brady is in the High Court in a case v Ron Martin to recover the money he is owed. I haven't seen it myself. I haven't seen this anywhere... can anyone confirm or deny? Also, apparently the word is that Cresswell is looking to head back up north for family reasons and may...
  11. Its not just injuries, suspensions...

    ...and Sturrock's "Tic-Tacs" that has F**ked Southend this year, but also the decision to not have any reserve team football. This year has proved, IMO, how important reserve team football is. Keeping "fringe" players, players out suspended, and players coming back from injury, vital match time...

    Out of the Play Off Positions

    Hopefully only temporarily, but Northampton's defeat of Burton moves us down one place to eighth. A draw would have suited us better, especially as Burton have played one game more than us. However, on balance a day off should give our players a chance to recover and re-energise both physically...

    Appears to have laryngitis & was not able to sing today. She may recover by next week - however the odds of recovery were considerably shortened today. (Thank you Crewe).

    The True Warrior

    I am genuinely excited to see Southend’s response to our first loss in 17 games. I believe the next 5 games will tell us an awful lot about the character we have in the squad. It goes without saying that a 17 game unbeaten run displays the true quality of the team but I believe the next 5 games...
  19. Breaking News Luke Daniels/Goalkeeper for Saturday related chat

    So a awkard sceranio for the FA cup game with Preston next week, with the news of Daniel Bentley getting injured today. Morris is still out with his injury and Daniels is not allowed to play due to a clause with his loan. So could the club play Luke Chambers the youth team keeper, will the...
