    F1 2017

    British GP under threat as usual, new cars new wings and a retired World Champ. This was interesting re Williams driver line up: "They needed a driver over 25 years of age to replace Bottas because their title sponsor, the drinks giant Martini, cannot use two drivers under that age for its...

    Mr Philips tweeted that the player brown met with yesterday is a winger who can play left or right wings but has a year left on contract . Can you really see big Ron paying out money to get these players in

    The Ashes 2013

    Sooooo, anyone care to speculate on the biggest sporting event of the year? England massive favorites on Betfair. I wonder if it will play that way.....Maybe I (along with others) am being paranoid what with it being Australia. You never know what they'll produce. Michael Clarkes form has...

    Cant help but think decesion to let Dave Martin go is not a good one? Dont think he is amazing but he does give us genuine width and his record of goal scoring is fair. This is unless Martin is being moved in to bring in someone else. Saturday Ryan Leonard looked like a little boy lost to me...

  9. Argyle

    Hi guys, Argyle fan here in peace. As you may know, our club is still in administration as the season starts. The administrator picked his preferred bidder many weeks ago but as yet that bidder has not completed the deal, as deadlines have apparently repeatedly been extended. The bidder...
  10. sufc_tom


    Just been thinking that everyone has been talking on about the midfield three (if we play 4-3-3), so what about upfront? The start of the season it will most likely be; Hall Harris and Johnson. But what when Corr is back from injury? Will PS drop Hall or Johnson to fit Corr in, or will he change...

    Great Southend United partnerships

    Anyone else excited by the prospect of Wade Small signing? That would give us a great partnership on the wings of Wade Small and Ryan Hall. Imagine the scene as they are introduced in training: Ryan Hall, let me introduce you to Wade Small: Ryan Hall Wade Small; Wade Small Ryan Hall. Any...

    First month thoughts

    so we head into september with cautious optimism on the playing front. How has the first month been for you? where are our strengths and our weak points? for me we have the making of a well shaped/organised team full of grit and determination. IMO to be 'up there' we still need something a bit...

    Pre match thread : Southend united v A friend of dorothy's hove albion

    So another relegation 6 pointer is upon us , well atleast if you still beleive relegation can be avoided. Brighton are in relatively good form and timed that form wonderfully given they were in the bottom 4 for large parts of the season. We on the other hand are a like a boxer who started...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    Random Article on Youth Set up

    Was looking for something else and stumbled across this article on the youth set up in 2000. All sounds very similar to what we are hearing these days, with the 'Score' team sounding like the development deals we now have.....have things really changed that much?! Soccer: Babes to give...
