  1. I'm interested to see how the young guns at Arsenal are fairing up... I want to look at integrating Dan Crowley, Alex Iwobi, Adelaine, Zelalem etc into my first team... Have any had any experience where these players have become first choice and fully developed into game changers?

  6. Welcome to the Southend United Thread A Brief History Southend United Football Club is an English football club from Southend-on-Sea, Essex. They will play the 2015–16 season in League One, the third tier of English football, having earned promotion from League Two via the play-offs. Southend are known as "The Shrimpers", a reference to the area's maritime industry included as one of the quarterings on the club badge. Founded 19 May 1906 in the Blue Boar pub Southend has been a member of the Football League since 1920. The club has spent most of its League career in the English lower divisions, with seven seasons in the League's second tier (Division 2/Championship). Southend United joined the new national Third Division in 1958, where they remained until 1966 when they suffered their first ever relegation, into the Fourth Division. The club had to wait six seasons until 1972 to experience the club's first ever promotion as runners-up behind Grimsby Town. In 1976 Southend suffered relegation again before taking another runners-up spot behind Watford in 1978. Another relegation in 1980 was directly followed by one of the most successful seasons in the club's history as they won the Fourth Division Championship in 1981, breaking a series of club records in the process. Despite success on the pitch and low admission prices, the club's gates were low and condemned as "a bad reflection on the town Southend Success Stories Southend beat Leeds United in the third round of the League Cup and the draw for the fourth round set up a tie against trophy holders and Premier League Champions Manchester United on 7 November 2006. United fielded a side with 10 internationals. Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney were amongst the starting line up, along with Gabriel Heinze, Darren Fletcher, Wes Brown and Alan Smith. Southend had injuries to strikers Billy Paynter and Lee Bradbury while Matt Harrold was cup tied so boss Steve Tilson partnered Gary Hooper up front with Freddy Eastwood. After 25 minutes Jamal Campbell-Ryce was fouled by David Jones 30 yards from goal, Kevin Maher, Steven Hammell and Freddy Eastwood stood over the free kick, Eastwood curled "a wonderful free-kick around the wall and into the top corner past Tomasz Kuszczak" as the BBC reported. Southend held on for one of the most famous victories in the club's history. Since this was the only meeting between the two sides to date, Southend are one of the only sides to have a 100% record against the Red Devils (along with Zenit St Petersburg, Vasco de Gama and Bootle Reserves). The latter defeated Newton Heath, the original name of Manchester United, in the 1890/91 FA Cup 2nd qualifying round.[15] [video=youtube;jFysv6je59M] On 3 January 2009, Southend drew 1–1 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the third round of the FA Cup. Chelsea included Frank Lampard, Joe Cole and Didier Drogba in their starting line up. The Premiership side had the best of the opening exchanges and had a great chance to take the lead when Didier Drogba was one-on-one with goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall before Osei Sankofa slid in to take the ball off Drogba's toes as he was winding up the shot. Southend's resistance was broken just passed the half hour mark when Salomon Kalou headed in from a Frank Lampard corner. Drogba could have extended Chelsea's lead before the interval but Steve Mildenhall saved. Peter Clarke nearly drew Southend level with 10 minutes remaining after seeing his header come back off the bar, Clarke was not to be denied a second time and in the 1st minute of injury time a Johnny Herd long throw was directed by Ricardo Carvalho straight into the path of Clarke who headed in the equaliser on his 27th birthday Stadium The club has played at five grounds: the original Roots Hall, the Kursaal, the Greyhound Park, the rented Writtle Street (home of Chelmsford City F.C.) and again at Roots Hall. On 24 January 2007, Southend Borough Council unanimously agreed to give planning permission for a new 22,000-seater stadium at the proposed Fossetts Farm site with Rochford District Council following suit 24 hours later. The application was subsequently submitted to Ruth Kelly, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, for government approval. However, the application was "called in" at the beginning of April 2007. The inquiry began in September 2007, followed in October 2007 by a "final" inquiry, when chairman Ron Martin called for supporters to show in numbers at Southend's local government headquarters. On 6 March 2008, permission to develop Fossetts Farm was given by the Government Recent Developments with Fossetts Farm have been a bit brighter after talks stalled. In October 2015, talks were made with British Land PLC to future fund the move. British Land plc is the UK’s largest listed owner and manager of retail space and a market leader in the design and development of Shopping Parks. Their skill is to create environments which support today’s work and leisure lifestyle.

    I have a SSD Hard drive as my C: Whenever I try to load graphics to the game, as my C: isn't big enough I can't put all the graphics on the C:.... Is there any way of sending the game files for things like tactics and graphics to my D: which is big enough?
  9. So I got to the Final of the play-offs.... only to lose 2-1 to Bromley.... the goalscoring is fine... I struggle with defence, this is my main aim for the new season. I will win that league this time!
  10. Quinby... He does seem like a handy player yes
  11. Im hoping to find that out soon. I've started as Concord Rangers, getting to the end of the season now. 2nd behind Ebbsfleet and only by 1 point. Been bouncing there all season so im hoping now my Forwards are back I might be able to take them and go up first time of asking!
  12. Going to do a test in League 2 with Southend United and see how it fairs
