  2. are football managers useless?

    Steve Tilson is as good as Bob Paisley. Paul Sturrock and Steve Tilson are two of the best football managers ever, considering their wages to success ratio: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/f340caae-47cd-11e1-b646-00144feabdc0.html#axzz24DjxMYOp one of the best things i've ever read, ever

    Question Paul Sturrock or Steve Tilson ???

    if you could pick (regardless of results), who would it be ? would you go for keeping Paul or bringing back Steve
  4. Statue For Fossetts

    I understand that a statue featuring our chairman flanked by 2 Shrimpers ''Legends'' is to be commissioned for the entrance to Fossets Farm. Although the choice of Ron Martin is ''set in concrete'', fans will be invited to vote for their favourite legends. My votes would go to Steve Tilson and...

    This thread is unjust...

    Steve Tilson was only a good manager due to the signing of Eastwood, Prior, Goater and all those other good players that he was lucky enough to sign... Paul Sturrock is entirely responsible for Bilel's failure to control his passions... Murdering Vanessa Feltz carries the same penalty as...

    Yet another Statto Promotion comparison!

    Sorry Zoners slow day at the office so here's yet another Statto comparison which proves absolutely nothing but makes me look extremely busy at work. So how are we doing this season compared to other promotion seasons? Converting two points to a win to three where applicable this how we...
  7. Marcus Milner making progress

    Good night to you all, Im a personal friend of Marcus Milner, hes only made one appearance for Southend United while he was a member of the U 18 squad in the Steve Tilson Era. After Paul Sturrock took over, he identified Marcus as a bright young prospect however this was very much short lived as...
  8. So here's the Funny Thing.

    I was standing in the que to take my son swimming lessons, wearing my Southend shirt, When a big Irish man walked out of the que 2 infront of me, walked over to me and said "bloody great game that Man U V Southend". I agreed, and we discussed further the game. Then out of the blue he said that...

    Mark Stimpsom

    Stimpson is about to be appointed the new Kettering Town manager. Mark, who was in temporary charge of the poppies when they beat Steve Tilson's Lincoln last weekend is expected to sign a contract in the next 24 hours.

    For anyone who follow Steve Tilson .. Braintree Vs Lincoln is on Live TV on Sept 3rd!

    Should be interesting game to watch! to see how they got on - I bet Braintree will win 3-1!

    Have we turned the corner 1 year on?

    Cast your minds back to July 2010. The negatives: We had just been relegated to League Two. We had just lost Steve Tilson. We had been in court several times that season. Players were going unpaid regularly. Pretty much all the squad had gone and we were in danger of not fulfilling our...
  12. Question Why are our fans so harsh on ex players/managers?

    like him or not as a manager steve tilson was a great player for southend and did good things as manager. another example is kevin maher he didnt even get a good reception when he came back.. for people to be happy tilson has taken lincoln down is a disgrace. the thing i think is funny fans have...
  13. Crawliano

    Memory Lane A nod to last year's unfortunately relegated superstars...

    They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good... 1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying...

    My thoughts will be with Tilly this weekend......

    No feelings either way for Lincoln but I fear that Tilly's career could be over if Lincoln don't match Barnets result this weekend. Hope it works out for him but my gut feeling is that they will go down. Have always liked Tilly just never convinced that he had all the attributes to be a...
  15. driving back to Essex - " a sweet sweet feeling"

    quote from his post match interview don't want to milk it but Steve Tilson has always been a winner - got to say I enjoyed the drive home too ..... ;-)
  16. Steve Tilson

    Breaks my hearts to have to post this in 'Ex-Shrimpers'.... Now the Tilson-era is over, what do you consider to be his greatest achievement at Southend United Football Club?

    Question Steve Tilson/Jamie Clapham

    I notice that Jamie Clapham scored for Lincoln in their 4-3 defeat at the weekend. Was Jamie at Lincoln before Tilly became manager or did he sign Clapham? If he did indeed sign Clapham, that makes interesting reading as Tilly wasn't interested in Clapham last season when on trial at Roots Hall?

    Blame the Manager?

    Just read this article - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9346616.stm - and with all the speculation about the jobs of Grant, Hodgson and Ancelotti and the number of managers who have been sacked in the last couple of weeks, it's got me thinking. Why is always the managers who get the...
  19. Tilson's Gift: Contacting Players

    Perhaps a mod could sticky this? Below is a list of players that played under Steve Tilson during his tenure as manager here. I've left out loanees and a choice few players (i.e. Ricketts, Foran), however if I've missed anyone let me know and I'll add them. What we're asking for is a short...
  20. Thoughts of a first time poster

    The club has been in freefall, but now seems to have stabilised somewhat, albelt with a fairly mediocre side in a fairly mediocre league. As a first time poster I thought you might like my thoughts. On the pitch we have seen a significant change in the system we play. I am still struggling to...
