subbed

  1. Subbed on and sent off

    What other occasions has a substitute been sent off? Corr also managed it last season at home to Bury. Surprised to find that Mohsni managed to avoid it.
  2. The Curse of Will Atkinson (or why Will Atkinson might be a super-sub)...

    We've played 17 games. Atkinson has featured in 15. In the two he missed, he was injured. So Brown rates him. Our total record for 17 games is: W = 6 (35%) D = 4 (24%) L = 7 (41%) Will Atkinson has started 8 games: W = 0 D = 3 L = 5 Will Atkinson has been subbed off in 3 of those 8 games: 2...
  3. Can PB solve the problem?

    It seems to me that PB isn't a problem solver... According to stats we have had this goal scoring problem for a long time, and a solution to this doesn't seem any closer to appearing. Take Jack Payne, a lot of us would have played him more last season as he seems to offer something different...

    If the game had finished at half time today...

    ...we would be saying how well we played. I could totally understand the system switch; we played narrower, with no wingers, because Weston and Coulthirst are not going to win aerial battles. With those two plus Payne and Clifford we have players with quick feet that can switch the ball about...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United vs Walsall

    Post match thoughts and ratings Sufc v Walsall A good game of football played at good tempo against a side who kept the ball well with both sides looking to go out wide and counter. Smith. 5 I'm glad he is second choice as he should have done so much better tonight. Spilled an easy save and...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend 1-1 Rochdale

    In summary, we didn't look very settled, however Atkinson, Timlin and Hurst keep things together in the 1st half. Lenny started ok, then made a huge faux pas and seemed to lose confidence, wasn't surprised when he was subbed in the 2nd half. Big loss in Prosser tonight, Phillips looked rather...

    BBBC - the legend

    Great to see Corr:Worthy: restored as the focal point of our attack. It's no coincidence that him being belatedly restored to the line-up has seen us improve. Some stats for you: Games the legend that is Barry Corr:Worthy: starts W 6 D 2 L 2* Games the legend that is Barry Corr:Worthy: is...
  8. Jamie Stuart, Damian Scannell

    Both played for Sutton Utd yesterday vs Concord Rangers at the Aspect Arena. Scannell, who recently left Eastleigh, citing lack of guaranteed 1st team football, started on the right midfield. The one time terroriser of the Leeds Utd defence was subbed at half time due to injury. Stuart, used...
  9. After our win at Rochdale on Saturday.....................

    Been down after the last weeks results , and the obvious reaction on here last night and today. So in order to redress the balance slightly and introduce a bit of a positive slant during these dark days , I thought I would start this one based on our 3-0 away win at Rochdale on Saturday. Wow ...
  10. Question Are ,Eastwood and Harris that bad?

    Please tell me are Eastwood and Harris that bad they cant get even some decent time on the ground ,from the subs bench even when its plain for all to see the Strikers ( NOT MOHSNI),have left their scoring boots at home,Assombolonga i think needs a rest,hes young and needs to be looked after at...

    Opening week ex-Shrimpers in action

    Am sure to have missed loads, so add them in League 2 Jack Midson scored the only goal as AFC Wimbledon beat Chesterfield 1-0 Ryan Clarke kept a clean sheet for Oxford in their 2-0 win against Matt Harrold's Bristol Rovers Adam Barrett was an unused sub for Gillingham Pat Baldwin was part of...

    Question Worst away sides to come to Roots Hall

    Whilst the result didnt really show how bad Barnet were last night I cant help but think the bulk of people that went will feel they are absolute ****. The only player that looked like he could kick a ball was Deering the gobby midgit and even he wasnt good. The black right back that got subbed...

    Worst ever individual displays

    With far too much positivity on the board following the signing of Lee Sawyer, I thought it about time I lowered the mood with a depressing thread, so inspired by mention of Che Wilson's LDV final appearance I want the definitive XI of worst ever performances. They don't have to be bad players...
  15. Tilson tonight

    watched Colchester reserves beat Maldon in the Essex Senior Cup tonight and left very shortly after Colchester subbed Scott Vernon.
  16. Tangled up in Blue

    Spain v South Africa

    Did anyone else see tonight's game? Thought it was an excellent match until Torres/Villa were subbed when at 1-0 up Spain had already won the game and were due to play the SF on Wed. night. Hopefully the final will be Spain v Brazil which could be an early taster for the real thing next summer...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...
  18. Sawyer, Hunt and Harrold

    Went to see Darlington v Wycombe last night with 3 ex-Shrimpers involved on the pitch. Sawyer and Hunt started and Harrold was on the bench. At first Sawyer looked like a boy amongst men - almost literally given the height of many of the other players involved. But he got more and more involved...

    Scouting at Grays

    Magnum decided to head down to Grays vs Rushden for some first hand intelligence on four of our old players. Great decision ! 0-0 Here was the lowdown Tommy Black (Centre Midfield) - Subbed after 60 minutes for a kid. Played in the centre of midfield and looked a pale shadow of the player...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Hereford United 0-1 Southend United

    Just back from Hereford. Didnt think we would edge it once Laurent missed that chance, but we certainly got stronger as the match went on and probably just deserved it, although the penalty was right in front of me, and I would have been pretty peeved to have that given against us. I reckon he...
