  1. EURO 2012 Daily Predictions and Previews.

    Euro 2012 Predictions and Preview: Croatia vs Spain Group Elimination C: Monday, 18 June 2012 - Gdansk - PGE Arena Spain the defending champions take on Croatia in Gdansk in a pivotal Group C game. Both sides are two points clear of Italy, who face the Republic of Ireland in the other pool...
  2. Breaking News Christian Dailly out for 6 weeks

    Broken toe apparently. Well it looks like Luggy is running out of defensive midfielders now. We might get that attacking midfield we're all asking for as he'll have no choice soon.
  3. Dickinson's Role

    CP said something on the radio yesterday, he said that Dickinson is one of our most inconsistent players, on his day he can be brilliant, but on the other days he won't win anything all game, there is no middle ground with him. I agree with this 100%, I also think the people defending him when...
  4. Lyle Della Verde

    Kid is doing well. To date it has been another positive season for the Academy’s Under-18s, Kit Symons’ side catching the eye with their attacking philosophy and exciting brand of football. With no shortage of creative quality, Lyle Della Verde is one who has certainly attracted attention...
  5. Have we kicked Hoofball into touch?

    Many fans have said that the second half against Northampton was the best half they had ever seen Southend play. It was absolutely exhilarating attacking wise. Hoofball was out as they passed with ease, speed and accuracy from the back to the front which always seemed to end with a shot or a...

    Sawyer's attacking threat

    Why is he not being played much? Surely we could've done with his attacking threat yesterday at half-time instead of Kalala? Saying that though, I'm now expecting him to start on Tuesday.

    Youth Pulls

    Very low respectable but should be worth some cash. Benny Warlock (4045020) Benny is an attacking LH Batsman, and an attacking RF Bowler. He has competent leadership skills and worthless experience. He currently has respectable batting form, respectable bowling form and fresh fitness. Plays...

    Signings that got you excited but sadly failed to deliver.

    I personally am at fever pitch for the new season. The signings of Harris and Johnson(and to a lesser degree the Palace chap) have really got me going. However I cant help but think that not all these wonder signings actually turn out good. I am looking for a list of players that really got us...
  9. Selling Up

    After my foray in the cup has ended, it may be time for me to sell up and rebuild. I've an ageing side and struggling to meet wages. When are prices highest? I'm thinking of selling the likes of Raisani, who won't fetch much anyway, soon and then the most valuable players at the beginning of...
  10. South Bank Hank

    So what does Harris offer?

    I'm as delighted as anyone at signing Neil Harris but my feeling is based on reputation alone as I've either not seen him play or, if I have, I've got no recollection of it. For those that have, what's his game about? Is it just an eye for goal or will he give us something else in our...

    Best Attacking Headers of the ball ever to play for SUFC

    Watching Barrys Corrs header yesterday it got me thinking I cant think of many players better at heading the ball goal bounds than Bazza. In my lifetime I can only really think of Brett Angell as being as good. I was wondering if anyone else had players that struck them as being really good...
  12. pringlejon

    I've been tempted into this again...

    About the same time last year, I started a Battrick team and then forgot about it. Hope to not do the same thing again. Went through some old threads for advice on startup and this is the squad I'm with at the mo after some early strengthening with 17 year olds for training (only spent £1000 or...

    Yooooooof Pulls

    Eugene Keane (3956439) Eugene is a defensive RH Batsman, and an attacking RH finger spin Bowler. He has woeful leadership skills and worthless experience. He currently has respectable batting form, respectable bowling form and fresh fitness. Plays For: General Stars Nationality: Canada Age...
  14. In all seriousness if Mohsni.....

    .....was fit enough to go straight back into the side on Friday (I know he isn't and won't but hypothetically speaking) I'd actually have still given us a slight glimmer of hope of gatecrashing the top 7. I think all the past 6 weeks has shown us is just how vital Bilel is to us (aswell as the...
  15. OD - Match 10

    BATTY SHRIMPERS v the_yak_pack BOT-bashing today, so rested a couple and set everyone to V. Attacking. We can tell you that BATTY SHRIMPERS won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking slow and low. Tough for everyone. Could be a low scoring match on this sunny day. We've dropped...
  16. Mohsni's spell as a striker...

    I'm going to credit Sturrock with some serious balls in giving Mohsni a run as a striker. I was thinking back to when I first saw him, at Bradford away, he was positionally naive but defended well. The main disappointment was that when attacking corners/free kicks he got into good positions but...
  17. Gary Neville

    Couldn't put it better myself Oliver Kay On Thursday 3rd February 2011, @OliverKayTimes said: A 1,000-word tweet dedicated to Gary Neville, the great overachiever ... There was, it is fair to say, a lively response last night when, in tribute to Gary Neville, I called him "one of world...
  18. Sturrock: Our fans are the quietest he has ever know!!!

    Sturrock said tonight that our support is awful and that we dont get behind the team at all!!! Maybe than Sturrock you need to get the team to start to play FOOTBALL then you may start hearing the crowd if we look like we are trying. Our counter attacking football works away from Home but it...
  19. BaileytheQuitter

    I wonder if our players feel like this

    Anyone else seen the Twitter controversy with Aldershot's Marvin Morgan? After their 1-2 home defeat (sounds familiar) to Hereford some of the fans booed the team (sounds familiar). After the game Morgan posted angrily on Twitter attacking the fans for their actions, apparently saying that he...
