    Tillys Days at Canvey are Numbered

    Rumour flying around that he is one defeat away from being axed and maybe even sooner than that as lots of unrest and having to name himself as sub last week may of added to the troubles he is facing over there .

    The Great Divide

    Blimey, what a week! We've got people who used to hate Ron now not hating him as much and maybe even liking him as well as people who gave him the benefit of the doubt before who think he is now the spawn of the Devil. We've got what maybe was a well intended gesture and an injection of a...

    Latest Rumours New club badge

    Now I have heard this a couple of times over the last month or two. But rumour has it that a new club badge is due to be released soon as well. Not sure of what the changes will be, let's hope it is not "Sainsbury Orange" Thoughts?

    Latest Rumours Mark Gower to return as player/coach?

    He has apparently bought a house in Upminster and the rumour I've heard is that he might return to the club as a player/coach. Can't disclose the source, but the rumour has come from a Swansea source, not a Southend one. Could happen in January.

    Loan Window Thread

    keep the loan movement in one place. are we linked with everyone? and names
  9. southchurch


    So as far as I can see no one paid any money for Mohsni This means he is still a Southend player and under contract for 1 year. We were offered £150 000 from West Ham and turned it down. I would imagine we thought that offer would be improved upon but sadly it wasn't. I have not heard any...

  11. Mohsni and Hall latest.

    Bilel Mohsni is to trial with Celtic for a few days this week. Apparently West Ham not willing to improve on their original offer for him. And Ryan Hall's future continues to be in doubt. Blackpool and Peterborough show interest but as yet have not made bids. Source : Echo

    Rumour (only): Boxed Fruit Drinks from deepest darkest Africa

    I am hearing, from a fairly reliable source, that our signings are, at present, on pre-contract agreements (similar to Sturrock's 127 signings 2 seasons ago) because of a currently imposed Cricko's favourite boxed fruit drink due to payments owed to former players. Anybody got anything concrete...

    Question Scouting structure

    Does anyone know anything about it? SUFC are a little odd in that unlike the vast majority of other FL clubs, they publish names of the coaching staff but withhold names of scouts and info on the scouting structure. The time has come for me to work on the data for Football Manager 2013 but...

    Steve Evans leaves Crawley?

    Rumour has it he's gone to Rotherham? Sounds like something's going wrong at Crawley to me.

    It's that where to go for a stag weekend question again

    Yes I know this must feel like we are reinventing the wheel again but I could do with a bit of help. A pal of mine has been asked to be best man to his pal but has the travelling experiance of a house bound recluse. Guess who has been lumbered to act as tour guide. I thought Belgrade but on...

    Well here we go with all the latest rumours regarding SUFC and who we will sell/buy/loan during The January Transfer window. Today's first rumour I found is that we will sign striker/winger Craig Westcarr from Chesterfield for a fee. Can't see that myself. Please keep all gossip etc in this...
  18. Steve Evans and Crawley Town

    Steve Evans is stating in my local paper that their forthcoming game against Shrewsbury is the "monster fixture" in the entire League 2 season. Personally, I don't think it's even the monster fixture of the weekend. My question is, what have you made of Crawley so far? To me, they look like a...
