  1. Re: English Championship 1 Yes I've quit all clubs. Decided it was time to quit SM. This was the one team keeping me going, but decided to go. Full reasons why are below http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?p=226633#post226633 May I just say good luck to who ever takes on Southend Utd. I've had them for four seasons and this really should be their year to go up. There shouldn't be a need to buy/sell players either. They have a good squad that has taken years to assemble. Good luck everyone!
  2. Re: English Championship 1 Shrimps shoot down Eagles Southend United continued their fantastic start to the season with a 2-1 victory away at Crystal Palace. Four games into the season and Southend remain joint top with Norwich City whom have also won all of their games. "This is just the start we needed. Some of the bigger teams haven't quite started as brightly as I thought so to get a lead on them this early is great news. Up front we look excellent and the rest of the team looks in great form too. We've got some tough games coming up against Portsmouth, Stoke and Sunderland. Hopefully
  3. Re: English Championship 1 Division Two - Season Preview We're in for a real treat this year in what must be one of the most competitive divisions on SM. Here we will look at each team and predict what lays ahead for them. Bristol City Average Rating - 88 Squad Size - 14 Star Player(s) - Van Der Saar (94) Strengths - Goalkeeper and goalscorer Weaknesses - No right sided midfielder and squad depth Prediction - 15th Other - With only 14 players they will struggle as the season goes on. A cup run would cripple the players. However a strong first eleven Carlisle United Average Rating
  4. Re: English Championship 1 Southend shut up shop Southend Utd can confirm the capture of two more players in Dmitri Loskov (90) and Shabani Nonda (87). This takes their summer signing to a total of twelve with the vast majority pushing for a starting role. "Loskov despite his age was a steal. The season is finished over in Russia so I can't see his performance dropping in the near future. A can't believe Nonda is rated so low at only 87 despite playing and scoring in Europe's top leagues. Over his career he has averaged nearly a goal every other so I can see him getting better." "We are no
  5. Re: English Championship 1 Southend ring the changes The Christmas sales are still going strong at Southend United. A total of nine new first team players have arriaved at Roots Hall with further transfers still on the card. The transfers to date read as follows - - Helton (90) - Tim De Cler (90) - Freddy Ljungberg (90) - Simone Barone (90) - Danny Koevermans (89) - Mama Niang (89) - Glen Johnson (87) - Stephan Carr (87) - Lee McCulloch (86) Two more players are lined whom will challange the above players for places too. "I'm delighted! To get this list of players for the squad
  6. Re: English Championship 1 Southend going Christmas shopping Following the disappointment of a fourth place finish in the Second Division Southend have moved quickly to secure the signatures of a number of transfer targets. Southend supporters can look forward to seeing Simone Barone, Helton, Freddy Ljungberg and Stephen Carr next season with the promise of at least 5 more star players. Whilst the stars have been arriving, some of last season's stars have departed. Manager Perry81 also shrugged off speculation about his future. He was quoted as saying he was considering his position at the
  7. Re: English Championship 1 Season over for Southend Despite drawing two a piece against a good Portsmouth team it wasn't good enough to push Birmingham City. The draw leaves the Shrimps three points adrift, but goal average counting heavily against them. With a fourth place finished secured Perry81 tells of his disappointment. "I would be lying if I said I wasn't gutted. I don't think we'll get another chance like this. On too many occasions we slipped when we just couldn't afford too. Losing 4-0 against Sheffield Wednesday was the killer, but we dropped too many points in the final run. Bi
  8. Re: English Championship 1 Southend cut down Blades. Southend United jumped up one league position into 3rd following their impressive 2-1 victory against a much fancied Sheffield United. Steven Hunt opened the scoring just before the half hour only to see the Blades claw back in the 80th through Mladen Petric. With the Sheffield supporters still celebrating on loan striker Igor Budan popped up with his first goal since joining the club a minute later to seal the win. "That was a big win. Sheffield United were chasing hard so it was important not to lose ground today. Four points from Mill
  9. Re: English Championship 1 Shrimps tame Lions Some teams would dread a trip to The Den, but not Southend United. With a near full attendance and hostile atmosphere it was familar surroundings for Perry81. As a life long supporter of his local club he has nothing but praise for what his counterpart manager has achieved this season. A well deserved 1-1 draw was earned for the Shrimpers to keep their title hopes alive. "It was a decent performance. We are looking to pick up at least 3 points from this game and the next so we need to attack against Sheffield United. Draws at this stage of the
  10. Re: English Championship 1 Southend bolster their ranks With seven tough games to go Southend are still in the promotion mix. Perry81 has strengthened his squad for the final run in with the loan signs of David Weir and Igor Budan from Fulham. Both players will go straight into the 1st team squad where they are expected to figure in tonight's game. "I've really got to thank Fulham for letting two players of this calibre come here. We've struggled for numbers throughout the season and I would hate to see us fall apart now! Budan gives us something extra. Our three strikers have struggled fo
  11. Re: English Championship 1 Shrimps battered by Canaries Southend's 10 game unbeaten run came to a crashing halt at Carrow Road leaving Perry81 to pick up the pieces. A strong Norwich City side swept aside the seaside club with an empathetic 3-1 score line. More bad news was to follow after the game with the injuries of two key players confirmed. First choice centre backs Steven Pressley and Russell Anderson have both been ruled out for at least two games. "I knew the game against Norwich would be tough, but still had hoped to gain a point from the game. The two injuries are a huge blow as
  12. Re: English Championship 1 Southendski! Perry81 has continued his spending spree since the departures of Andrew Taylor and Elais Kiriakidis. Two more exciting prospects have been signed to add to the six already signed. Two further transfers are also close to completion bringing the total to TEN. The two new boys, Kiri Kombarov and Tomislav Dujmovic, hail from the Russian league. Like three of the previous signings, were actually scouted by Fulham manager Teb and are highly thought of in Europe. To make the transfers happen Southend did however lose Sankofa, Mvuemba and Ifill in the opposit
  13. Re: English Championship 1 Southend go Russian Just as Southend was about to announce the signings of two well known British players, United pulled the plug at the last minute and signed a total of six new players instead. Three of the signings, Gaal, Nakhushev and Dzyuba, come fresh from the Russian league on the back of a recommendation from fellow manager Teb. The further three signings made include youngsters Clayton Donaldson, Nathan Ashton and Eliot Omozusi. "I'm thrilled with the signing. We were just about to sign 2 players on big wages, but then these players have come to my atten
  14. Re: English Championship 1 Shrimpers fishing out missing links Following the departures of Andrew Taylor and Elais Kiriakadis it has been rumoured that Southend are closing in on two new players. "I was disappointed to have sold the two young lads, but this team needs to kick on. You'll probably see another couple of players leaving in the near future. As for targets, I was lining up Jan Simunek as a replacement, but Aston Villa have got there a day earlier! We're now focusing are efforts on a couple of bigger names to help with our end of season push. A few new young players could also mak
  15. Re: English Championship 1 Thank you for the glowing reference Herby! I'm as surprised as anyone as to how well Southend are doing. The squad is thread bare, but some how all the player conditions are still good. A cup run would have killed my season off I think! An injury to Scholes would also finish my season. Division 2 is wide open in my opinion. Everyone is capable of beating anyone. I don't think enyone is capable of pulling away at the top of the table giving the strength of the division. Just need to keep winning against the bottom half teams (draws are no good) and try to get draw
