  2. Does Uncle Ron know?

    Rumour has it that PB has thrown tantrums that have seen the back of several key players over 2 or 3 seasons, and that critical decisions about starting line-up and substitutions have sometimes not been dispassionate but rather a reflection on PB's relationship at the time with individual squad...

    Birthday games

    Scrolling through games played on my birthday, I realised I've only seen us play once on my birthday - a drab 1-0 win at home to Scarborough in 89 - I got a happy birthday on the tannoy as well! The other games on that day (whilst I've been a fan) have been losses at Derby (0-7, 92/3)...

    Justin Edinburgh

    Great piece in the Times today on him (Sorry not IT enough to copy on here) However the piece I loved was his time with the boo boys at Spurs " I was one of the longest serving players and became an easy target for the boo boys. It takes a lot to go out there, knowing your not as popular as...

  7. Contract,what contract

    So the WBA forward may go on strike after Albion snubbed the Spurs bids. Jesus,these players ain't got a clue,reportedly on a non shabby 30k a week yet not satisfied. Will Albion let him rot in the reserves? Probably not,but he has burnt many bridges with his tantrum.
  8. 2013/14 Accounts -Interesting bits

    Cardiff have announced that they will be changing back to blue kits with immediate effect. Newly re-designed badge, with the bluebird returning, to follow shortly thereafter. Good news for Cardiff - wonder what mental stuff Vincent Tan will come up with next though....

    If you look at Phil Brown's managerial record , its seemingly either going really well or really badly. No half measures. HE took Hull up into the Premiership + for a while topped the Prem , playing attacking , confident football. Then they lost a game + for some reason Brown couldnt get the...

  17. Question Phil Brown's media work - is it getting in the way?

    PB seems to be cropping up with increasing regularity on BBC 5-live, Sky, ITV etc. Maybe more time concentrating on Southend might improve our results Phil! Is his media work getting in the way of his work as our manager? maybe he's looking to change career? Am I the only one getting bored of...

    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...
