George Saunders

I note from from his interview that he hopes to be fit by sometime in October/November. I sincerely hope that we have not got another Zavon Hines situation here, whereby he was never fit enough to play for us again and we ended paying up the contract. In particular l note the club have given George ...

Re: New Signing Pending

Looks like a gamble signing, particularly with a history of injuries. Without doubt not experienced enough for what we should be looking for if we want to compete at the top of the table. Young rookies are for back-ups, not for a fit in the middle spine of the team. Also l note Comley has gone to Wa...

Callum Reynolds

I note ‘Mr Average’ has left to join Bromley. Good luck to him. We need far bigger, stronger defenders than him in the team. Seen him stand of watch the opposition players head goals from set-plays while he stands and watches. At least it’s another player we will know the weakness when we play them....

Re: Sagaf

I agree with this comment. With the money that has been available to Daryl you would have thought we would have made a far bigger impact on this league. Unfortunately it seems he has wasted far too much money in getting in ‘average Joe players” who have made little impact.

Re: Yoan Zouma

Can’t believe that West Hsm have picked Kurt Zouma for tonight’s match against Watford. Dagenham & Redbridge l am sure would not have done that !

Re: Spennymoor

Went to Spennymoor to watch Ilford play in the Rothman’s Cup Competition on the 21st February 1976. It was a long drive from Ilford on a damp and foggy day. Ilford won 2-0, with a side that included John Still and Tony Bass, who in fact scored one of the goals. Waited 48 years to see this team play ...

Re: Crucial Week.

Totally agree the above. With Rance and or Jones in the side we look a far more meaningful team. When the likes of Morias and Akanbi are in the team we do play and look like an extremely average team. Now Walker is fit and McCallum could be nearly ready to return, the likes of Morias and Akanbi shou...

Re: Time for Daryl to go?

Where do you start............... Appalling recruitment. Signing a complete bunch of players that quite obviously other teams do not want, including players with a known history of injuries, ie Walker and Jones and we are now suffering because of this. Chronic team selection, having to change the te...

Re: Junior Morias

When it states, we paid a five-figure sum for this chap, l hope they have have taken account of the pennies , ie £100.00. Even then, by the fans of all his previous clubs, that would be too much

Re: New Southend management team

Yes, should be interesting. However apart from Darren Currie who always seemed to do his best. Kevin Maher was always injured and Mark Bentley never lived up to his potential and was one of the worst players ever to put on our shirt. Cannot see all three lasting the course. For God's sake, let's hop...

George Saunders

Its been plain to see for some time now that the lad (at the moment at least) is way out of his depth, both physically and confidence-wise for this league. Despite the platitudes of the Hornchurch manager, Mark Stimson, when we signed him, he has not developed into the player we require at this pres...

Interested to know what other supporters feel about the close season and their aspirations for the new coming season. starting with away game at Stockport, then a few weeks later at Wrexham which represent a really difficult start. Already friendlies are being cancelled due to injuries, which really...
