  2. 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...

    South upper row b seats 55 and 56 two brothers in their late fifties with scars and dyed black hair Every match seems to be the same; win ,draw or lose the abuse some players get is a disgrace, Fridays match reached a new low from the first minute till the last no player was spared with the...

    Start to the season

    Well here we are after the first few games of the Brown era. The ethos certainly seems to that of a hard working physical side that likes to play football when in possession. Many posters on here (including myself) had concerns about the back four as well as the possibility of our front two not...

    Official Match Thread Hartlepool vs Southend United at Victoria Park

    Who have you been most impressed with so far?

    We have had a quite a big turn around in playing staff. Who have you been most impressed with. I am really pleased that phil brown rescued Ben coker from non league. I have really taken to him and i think he is a cracking signing. He reads the game so well and defends brilliantly and his...

    Current players like past players

    Watching last nights thoroughly entertaining game, it struck me that some of our players really remind me of other players.... anyone else agree ? CRAIG REID .................HARRY CRAWFORD DON COWAN..................MARTIN CARRUTHERS WILL ATKINSON.............JULIAN HAILS DANIEL...
  9. Brownisms

    I feel like these deserve their own thread. So far we've had: Anthony Straker - likened to Gareth Bale Barry Corr - a League Two Andy Carroll Daniel Bentley - without putting too much pressure on, will play for England Any more for any more?

    Last names ending in "er" team for Southend

    GK: Defence: Prosser, Barker, Coker Midfield: Straker, Lapper, Butler, Salter Attack: Struggling with any forwards ............ and have discounted "Prior" and "Moussa". :unsure:

    If anyone was under any illusion as to how bad football-rumours.co.uk is...

    04 May 2013 15:15:28 Doncaster are set to offer 500k for Southend left back Anthony Straker. :facepalm:
  13. Lets move on!

    Can we all please stop this Sturrock would've done better than Brown bollox. The Season is over with Sturrocks team. He brought all of these players in during his time with us. I'm not buying all the Sturrock love in. Yes he seems like a top man who has left with great dignity, yes he done a...

    Finish with a whimper or a BANG!

    ? What is it to be for the final stretch of the season? We can't win anything by playing safe: so now lets try and get some goals and entertain. We have 4 very good (for this division) strikers and we may as well have them all on the pitch together. We may concede a few (we are anyway) BUT we...
  15. Sean Clohessy was scouted yesterday...

    I was sitting next to Mick Harford and Karl Robinson from MK Dons at Wembley yesterday and they were there to check on the performance from Clohessy and Murphy from Crewe. They left about 80 mins in and by all accounts they weren't overly impressed with his performance yesterday but said that...
  16. Transfer fees

    I believe we paid a transfer fee, reported as £12,500, for Anthony Straker. Can anybody remember the last player we paid a fee for prior to this? PS- this is not a Straker bashing thread. Thanks

    Team for Saturday

    After a very disappointing performance against Barnet on Tuesday will we see many changes? Will Bilel make an appearance? My team would be, Smith Clohesy - Cresswell - Prosser - Straker Hurst - Lund - Spillane - Reeves Britt - Corr Bringing Bilel on in the 2nd half and stick him up top!
  18. Straker

    Thought he had a really good game when he came on today. Makes me wonder why he didn't start over Barker at left back anyway.
  19. IloveShrimp

    Were were fortunate really!

    After the fantastic night that was Wednesday, I have to say that Luggy really got away with it imo. Both goals against us were down to two defenders who in my opinion at least one should not have been playing Barker and Phillips, also when Orient hit the bar it was down to Barkers defensive...
  20. Straker

    I am sorry but I don't know why Sturrock brought this player in .Even chris Philips has said the guy is a poor defender .He almost cost us dear today . We must have a better left back in the squad .And if we haven't I suggest P S goes in search of one quick .:thumbdown:
