    Pre-Match Thread Cheltenham Away

    Next 'cup final' cheltenham away, again I think the first 11 may kind of pick itself coming off the back of two wins that has revitalised the push for the play offs. Couple of variables to chew over, Corr being available for selection, Murphy to possibly start???? Personally I wouldnt do much...
  3. Early thoughts on Player-of-the-Year(season!)

    It's a bit early,I know but I've seen every home game and quite a few away(inc. Newport and Torquay) and trust that most will agree with my realistic assessment. 1st place:Only four players have consistently played at a high standard and because three of them(Kiernan,Egan,Sokolic)as loanees...

    FL Show - Southend v Torquay

    Not much on us, but really was a blatant hand ball by Murphy. Little bit of luck went our way for a change. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04047k6/The_Football_League_Show_2013_2014_29_03_2014/ 1:08:50

    Never seen that before!

    Were my eyes deceiving me or did Benyon spend half time warming up with the Southend subs before being told off by one of the Torquay training staff?

    Bet someone puts one up at the same time! Unchanged..........no surprise.
  8. Ref Watch ...... Torquay H

    After Monday's unsurprisingly excellent performance from Dean Whitestone, we have another referee who is usually pretty decent too. No lack of experience with Saturday's referee. It is Scott Mathieson from Stockport who I believe is the longest serving Football League referee, this being his...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Torquay

    So is it a simple team selection for Mr Brown....barring injuries. I would imagine so.....the two centre backs are looking imperious. ....midfield seems to have found some energy from somewhere and Loza up front seems to have sparked things off too. Will the returning striker curse hit us...

    Torquay Can't Afford Any More Players

    I doubt we can either, but at least we know what we're up against on Saturday. BBC

    Why oh why oh why

    Has it taken so long for the team to rediscover its form. That tonight was the team that was doing so well 12 games ago. Full of energy, endeavour, football played on the deck and players that wanted to win. Can't remember the last time we played so well and created so many chances, well I can...
  13. Ref Watch ........ Wycombe H

    Tomorrow sees our 6th ever home League match against Wycombe. From the previous 5, we have 2 wins, 2 defeats and a draw with 7 goals apiece. Man in charge will be Mark Heywood from Northwich (not to be confused with the more experienced Mark Haywood from Wakefield). He is in his third season as...

  15. FA Cup & The League - 25th January

    With us and Rochdale being the only League 2 teams left in the FA Cup, everyone else is playing League games on saturday. Scunthorpe are away at Daggers, should they win, that will put them over the 50 point mark. Doesn't really affect us much, if we were playing Northampton and won, we would...

  18. Latest Rumours Sturrock to Torquay?

    Despite his links to Plymouth, Luggy has already been linked to the vacant manager's position at Torquay after they sacked Alan Knill yesterday. He is living back down there and would be a decent appointment for them. He would be linking up with Benyon again should he join. Sturrock tops a list...
  19. Ref Watch ........ Portsmouth H

    Our first referee of the New Year is Dave Phillips from Chichester in West Sussex, refereeing his tenth Southend match in his sixth season as a League referee. His first Southend match was Huddersfield at home five years ago (lost 1-0), second was away ay Yeovil four years ago (lost again...
  20. Question Pb telling his players if they cant hack it ship out?

    I was thinking the same thing, can the players hack it!It seems to me that everytime we get a chance to go top etc we blow it!Are some of these players incapable of accepting the pressure that goes with a promotion challenge,We blown 2 or 3 opportunities now ,how many more are we going to get.I...
