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

    Abysmal. Absolutely abysmal. That's the only way I can sum that up today. Tilly needs to show some balls sometimes, he really does. We're playing an average, mid table side at home and we set up with such a negative midfield. It's almost like we're playing Chelsea or something. The substitutions...

    Freddy vs Man Utd, Benji at Bury, Liverpool 1979, blah blah blah. We've had loads of chat on here about favourite moments supporting Southend but they've all tended to focus on great goals.

    Just how bad are things really?

    This isn't intended as a rose tinted post and I am certainly not seeing all things as sunshine and flowers as someone suggested on another thread. But at times like this it is very easy to be swept along on a bandwagon of fear and despair, with an awful lot of statements being made that are...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend-Orient: a sensible dicussion

    Right, let's have a proper chinwag about Friday. A couple of disappointing (but all too predictable) starts to the season for our two teams. Defensive frailty and a lack of natural width seem to pervade both sides, and each of us will be looking for Friday to kickstart our seasons. From an...
  13. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Hull City 3-1 Southend United

    My first game of the season and I was really impressed with our performance and the confidence our players displayed when in possession, despite the fact that Hull fielding a weakened side. Mildy - 5 - I'm afraid he was the one player who didn't earn his money tonight. He had pretty much...

    Remaining positive

    Even before I start writing this article I get a feeling it is hard to keep/get everyone feeling positive with the current situation of the squad/lack of signings. But we do need to remember, we do still have some good players, who can do a decent job. Okay. Steve Mildenhall- Massive...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie
