    HT Training update

    A 20 year old WB to brilliant (solid wing) Form -4 on defence (2 first teamers) Form +7 rest of squad (6 first teamers) This is a very nice bonus with the tough 2 vs 1 game this Sunday. I'm confident I'm going to win it with the usual 5-4-1 pressing (mainly coz I don't have the...

    Wiggy's reserve ratings,

    Sodje 8 solid as a rock, great aerial ability and bullet header of a goal, do we drop A.B, P.C or leave it as it is? Jay Smith 9 just what we are looking for, sublime defence opening perfectly waited through balls, god why doesn't he get a proper chance? Mitchell Cole 8 very lively...
  3. When everything settles down....

    When we get a few more games into the season, and presuming everyone is fit, what do you expect Tilly's starting line-up to be and how would it differ from your own? I'd expect us to line up before too long as: Flavs Francis Hammell Barrett Clarke Gower JCR Maher Guttridge Eastwood...
  4. Useless bit of information

    Getting very bored in the wait until kick-off this afternoon I decided to work out the average age of the Southend squad, all 19 first teamers and thought I'd share it with you.... The average age for our squad is around 25, quite a young squad really. As you can see, very bored.

  7. Training Ground Report

    Just had call from OlvisIII who has been at Boots and Laces this morning and watched for a bit. He reports that the keepers were training separately as were the youths. He said that 18 players/first team were training not including Wayne Gray or the Goat apparently. He said he didn't think...

    No pops for me this week (none expected) but a form bonanza, +12/-5 and none of the -5 were first teamers. Means my first XI playing Sunday will be 10 higher than it would have been. Woo hoo! Back to 5-4-1 defensive this week as we look to pick up a point to get our season on the move.

    Southend United Reserves Vs QPR Reserves

    According to the official site, Southend United's reserves went down to two late goals in a 2-1 victory for QPR. One of the QPR goals was down to a trailist giving the ball away 35 yards out from goal. The second was in the 91st minute. Gray scored our goal to give us a 1-0 lead. Did...

    Time to Strengthen the Squad ?

    This has nothing to do with a promotion push. I've said enough times on here it would worry me not one bit if we even missed out on the play-offs, though I'm sure the club could do with the money. Injuries and suspensions are bound to be a factor in the next few weeks. Tilly seems to...

    Controversial Decision

    After a full and thorough analysis of the division I've decided there's absolutely zero chance of me staying up this season. Consequently I've decided to use this season to completely rebuild my side, hopefully funded by some decent gate receipts and the sale of 14 players, some of whom are...

    the fbm view and ratings

    West Ham kicked off and set a fantastic pace.  In the first minute Harewood was set loose in the box and bought a fine save from Bartman.  It was about 3 minutes before we touched the ball and to be fair the movement from the opposition pulled us all over the pitch.  We were however to have a...

    West Ham injury crisis

    West Ham to play with a patched-up team since 5-6 first teamers are missing. Youngsters will be blooded.
  14. Local players

    Is it right that we now have three local first-teamers? Are there any more? I feel a poll coming on -- best ever local player for Southend?...
