  1. Interpol Shrimper

    Gareth Taylor

    Taylor listed As much as transfer rumours annoy most people on here during the transfer window, could Gareth Taylor be a striker worth looking at? Maybe not as a first choice but definitely a good addition to the squad. He'd probably want a hefty wage to tempt him to the Hall though.
  2. Taylor Transfer Listed By Forest

  3. Football Lge U21 vs. Italian Lge U21 (Serie B/C)

    Given that Peter Taylor is taking charge of this game next month at the KC Stadium I'd put Freddy down as having a great chance of making the squad given PT's past comments about him. I believe Freddy fits the criteria as having been 21 at the start of the season. It's live on Sky.
  4. Parkin

    Just seen on the beeb website that the 'lump' Parking has signed up for Hull City, one more out of the reckoning. Taylor must see something in him, most people on here didn't think he was good enough for Div 1! Can't say I wanted him though

    Hull v Villa game

    bit late but ex-Shrimpers at Hull with their mugs on telly : Peter Taylor, Colin Murphy, Leon Cort. Bit annoyed with the Beebs blatant lack of mentions of Southend United when describing the above though - Peter Taylor - ' ex Palace, Spurs and England player. Ex-Leicester & Brighton...

    Tonights Echo

    Peter Taylor is considering Freddy for the U21's. That would make him Southends first England international. Will he play for the U21's? Peter Taylor said "We'll have to wait and see". No wonder Ron wants to keep him. The price keeps going up...

    SKY - Does Accuracy really matter?

    I watched the game back last night and did have to chuckle to SKY's ability to not let facts get in the way of exaggerated commentary!! Don't know if anyone else noticed but apparently... 1. The attendance of 10,100 was the biggest league crowd for ten years!! Hmm, just...
  9. Grounds you've seen the Shrimpers at...

    I was thinking the other day about how close I am getting to becoming a member of the 92 club. It seems I've been rather scuppered by thoughtless chairmen moving their clubs to new grounds in recent years however. I expect some of you can add some wierd and wonderful outposts and memories...
  10. Ernie Shepherd

    Question for any oldies out there. Ernie Shepherd was Southend's manager in late 60's. I have only just found out I work with his grand daughter. Just wondered if any oldies have any memories of him that I could pass on to her. I think he may have signed Peter Taylor
  11. Swindon v SUFC fans banter...

    What do the Swindon fans think about this game? I fancy a SUFC win, 2-1! The goat and gray to score. Who should we look out for on the Swindon side? Message 2 - posted by HOROZONTALHARRY, 21 Hours Ago Saddlers fan here, in peace. We played Swindon on Saturday. Their best player was the...
  12. Team news vs Huddersfield

    UPDATED Southend captain Maher 8 faces a race against time to be fit for the visit of Huddersfield to Roots Hall. The Irishman has been struggling with a knee tendon problem, but will hope to be available after a week of rest. Defender Spencer Prior could be recalled after shaking off the...

    Evening Echo

    Worth getting today's echo if you can. A superb series of interviews with Peter Taylor on matters such as 1. Collymore 2. Tilly 3. Fry 3. Vic Jobson 4. A return to Southend Oh and did you know RM actually offered him the manager's job when he sacked Newman only to be vetoed by the...
  14. The "6-figure-man"

    From Official site: When you hear Tilson say "he has a lot of sides that want him" and "he's got a decent price tag around his neck but he has a good scoring record" IMHO you automatically think Luke Beckett. Tilson says he's not going to name him but thats a pretty...

    Hornchurch FC is no more

    Carrying on from the other thread, it was confirmed today that Hornchurch FC have ceased trading and have been replaced by a new team known as AFC Hornchurch. The Management duo of Tony Choules and Carl Taylor who were brought in after the previous collapse have had to leave, and I should...

    Maher To Hull.

    I know a Hull city fan and he said they are looking at none other than Kevin Maher. Apparantly they have scouted him on numerous occasions, and Peter Taylor has reportedly been a big Maher fan for a while now. Didn't Hull come in for him just before Kev signed a contract extention? Peter...

    On Friday 21st April 1972, Southend sat in 2nd place in Division 4 and on the verge of their first promotion in their history. We had gone 14 games unbeaten, and needed to beat Cambridge at home that evening to go top, as we were just 1 point behind leaders Grimsby. Cambridge were mid-table...
