  1. How long does Brown get...?

    For all his faults, Ron has been a pretty good judge of when to get rid of his managers. He doesn't panic and tends to give them time to turn things around. That said, he's invested heavily this year and so far it's looking unlikely he'll get any reward. If results don't improve at what point...

    Southend Best in the League

    What did you expect, we have Nile Ranger up front pulling the trigger. :winking:
  3. Floval Flyer

    Question Post Brown management options...

    You would surely think that old Ron must be looking at available managers, in light of the fact he must pull the trigger soon... If you were in RMs shoes who would you be touting? A lot of 'out of work' managers have a better win ratio than PB, whether we can afford their salaries, or meet...
  4. * ORM *

    For the love of (Adam Barrett)

    Ron, pull the trigger now. We have a squad good enough to hold its own. We have a manager that for the best part of 9 months has got nothing consistently decent out of them. One game doesn't tell the truth, patterns don't lie. The referee, injuries, bad luck. Every team faces this. Phil's time...
  5. Does anyone actually hate Phil ?????

    I certainly don't ! He comes across as very likeable and a decent guy,cannot understand why some on here use the phrase "Phil/Brown haters".....lazy reposte IMO to even utter that phrase. Dont like his football style that is certain,hate never! Does he deserve the sack,he has been lucky Ron...
  6. USA bad cops.

    Another youngster shot dead by police in America. Some of these cops are trigger happy thugs and should be arrested for murder,They continue to blast away at unarmed mainly young black men,It's legalised execution .

    RIP Trigger

    One of the greatest TV characters of all time in my opinion. Thanks for the laughs. RIP
  10. Yorkshire Blue

    Crowd for Saturday

    30,000+ fans at Wembley last week and only the new manager's second home game. Will the appointment of our new manager with his glowing (orange) premiership reputation enthuse the fanbase to build upon this achievement or will crowds drop because of the awful performances dished up under his...

  12. Thank You Paul Sturrock.

    Was able to watch both games live here. Obviously gutted like all Blues Fans. However, am not prepared to pull the trigger on the Gaffer just yet. Brought us back from the brink, moved us forward, built on it this year. Frustrating that we've thrown it away. However, I'm convinced you are the...
  13. Chairman's Cheque book Needed

  14. Can a footballer learn to control anger?

    Or for that matter can any human being learn to control anger? Well the simple answer is yes we can learn to control anger. But in general anger cannot be managed simply by someone trying harder next time to avoid getting angry (as some seem to think). I have never heard of footballers...

    Late Licensing

    With Bakers Bar now open till 5am at weekends (breakfast served from 3am!) I thought this might trigger a domino effect and I notice that Mayhem has now applied for one as well. What are peoples thoughts on our licensing finally moving out of the dark ages? personally I think it's...
  16. 100 greatest SUFC goals that never were.....

    OK, we've had the greatest goals ever, but how about the ones that should have been the greatest ever, but for some reason weren't. This could be because they would have been the most famous goal in Southend's history to beat Liverpool or set up a tie with Chelsea, or it might be...

    After being a bit stupid and not booking tomorrow off work, I thought I'd post now despite the fact I'm shattered after a long tiring day. After leaving home at 8:10 and getting in about 21:50, add in the result and I feel pretty deflated. No doubt FBM will be around tomorrow with his report...

    The whole SOUTHEND 1st team have been struck down by this BIRD FLU academic. Looks like it takes at least a month to recover!!! Here is some information about the bird flu: WHAT IS IT: A form of influenza believed to strike all birds, though domestic poultry are believed especially...
  20. The Blues are going up!

    What a stonking day at Aggbrough, it doesn't get much better. Terrific gutsy showing in the last ten minutes to finally get the win we should have sown up much earlier. But then if we had sown it up earlier we would have missed out on the fantastic ending. We were by far the better team...
