    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...

    Herd's throw in's

    shocking attacking play from everyone. no one coming the collect the flick on. just standing there. no one on the back post either. its just a weapon that we do not how to use. its better than a corner i think. seriously need to work on this.

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend 0-0 Exeter

    League 2 football for us next year then :'( Never really threatened and could probably count the amount of shots on target on one hand. Nothing on the bench to change the game, Scott Spencer the only attacking option on the bench. Paterson and Vernon didn't click, Paterson hardly ever ran onto...

    Set Pieces

    Do we not practice defending (or attacking for that matter) set pieces on the training ground??? I am sure that we do however Time and Time again we concede soft goals from not clearing our lines, not tracking our men or not challenging at Set pieces. T&B must take responsibility for this...
  9. Malone or Herd?

    I'm not the greatest fan of Malone and after watching some of the set pieces last night he took, so of them barely got of the floor and not threatning at all. In Herd I think we attatch more down the left hand side and would be ideal to link up with a Watt who is left footed. Herd also has...

    6 nations

    Got to say, I'm quite looking forward to this. Pretty big blow for England will Flutey out, I'm worried about how flimsy a three-quarters line that looks with Flood and Tait in the middle. Both are very talented attacking players, but they give the impression that a gust of wind could knock...

    Despair

    It is a shame to now log onto this website and see at least 5 new threads a day that are shaped towards the same issues. Tilson out, Martin out, Finances. The once positive Shrimpers Chit-Chat is a mere needle in a haystack to what it once was. Talk of relegation coincides with a team going...

  14. Owen Coyle

    Excuse the rambling, I have a soft spot for Burnley.... Owen Coyle to Bolton. If there ever was a mismatch made in heaven then this is it. Up until a few years ago Southend v Burnley was a regular fixture. Dour and difficult to play away and we'd look to get points off them at home. Yet I...

    About time as well if you ask me Callum Fellowes (2776631) Callum is a LH Batsman and LH Spin Bowler. He is an attacking player with strong leadership skills and abysmal experience. He currently has respectable batting form, respectable bowling form and lively fitness. Plays For...
  16. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 1 (2000-2004)

    As we've had our last game of the decade, I had planned to do something about the top twenty matches of the ten years just gone but I found it very difficult to leave some matches out, plus in truth it's some of the defeats which have stuck with me the most. And rather than doing a countdown I...

    A message...........

    to the Southend United players out there on the pitch today and Tilly and Brush. Anyone that knows me will tell you I'm not usually one to post critical comments and apportion blame but tonight I'm going to make an exception. Firstly, the players. You let us down today. You let the club down...

    Malone AND Herd

    Crossed my mind last night that the thought of playing both Malone (at left back) and johnny herd on the left side of midfield when his injury permits wouldn't be a bad idea. Moussa was woeful last night, and IMHO I thought Malone had no cover in front of him, and was exposed too often. Moussa...
  19. Penalty Shoot Outs

    Was discussing at work today whether the whole penalty shoot out debate needs to be turned on its head with in fact the penalties being taken first before the kick off begins. The winner would be the winners if deadlocked after 90mins. Does this work or is this crazy. Would certainly create...

    The FA Get It Right!

    Justice, when it finally arrived, was measured without being merciless. With a GBP20,000 fine and a four match touchline ban, two of which are suspended, The Football Association have resisted the temptation to make an example of Sir Alex Ferguson without letting him off the hook entirely. On...
