If Phil Brown is quick Mohsni could catch the 1532 Eurostar from Stratford International.

Bit off topic, but anyone know why its called Stratford International? I don't think Eurostar trains even stop there.

Bugger. In that case he'll have to go into Liverpool Street and round on the circle to St Pancras. He'll have to wait for the 1632.

Stay classy Southend.

We've given him plenty of chances where we'd have been justified in sacking him, don't now sack him because he played badly when being played in his least suitable position.

I really do love the fact that he dismissed Southend as beneath his abilities last Summer, but is now dependant on us for his footballing future. I hope Uncle Ron unzips his fly and makes him earn his keep.

The link gives a quote from Phil Brown."the meetings are about the future of himself, myself and Southend United".

Probably reading to much into this quote, but you never know.

I wonder if by making him tame his aggression, it has dented his footballing ability, by making him change his game too much.

Since he got sent off in his return vs Northants, he has played 8 times, only being booked once. By making him change his style of play, and playing him in totally the wrong position, has that taken away from the player he is?

Does he need his drive and crazyness to be a better player, and if so, is the added risk of that Mohsni, worth the extra rewards it has previously garnered?

Look how average Rooney has been in his displays for England, since he became a bit more mature, and not the dogged, snarly player he once way

Being picky, it's actually 1531, or 1622 from St Pancras to be honest. Just enough time to get the 1622. Reasonable fares too. Whip round anyone?
