I missed the Shrewsbury game as I was visiting family, the others were cup games so I haven't been able to watch (apart from Bromley away) and I was on holiday end of August - early November. With all the cups & international breaks etc, the last Rovers game I saw on iFollow was MK Dons - 12th October ffs!
I've been eyeing up this fixture for a while, in theory we should win comfortably - but I don't think we will. I'll take a scrappy 1-0 win, but I have a bad feeling for some reason. No idea why!
From what I've read, Southend a a truly awful side this season
Worst performance so far from us under Cogs. He needed to change it after the first goal, didn’t , the second was obviously coming , and then still nothing after the second. We’re still in it at 0-2 but needs a big second half from everyone.

What are GC's tactics? Try not to concede. That's it. Plymouth & now Southend, just doing the basics right. Not rocket science is it. We could buy 2 or 3 creative players who would then be told don't do anything creative. Even if we get something out of this today it'll purely be the players being given free reign. Not GC's tactics. I was hopeful that today's team talk would have been easy from GC. 'Southend are crap, go and show them what you can do, the balls in your court. Show me what you can do'
I'm a massive fan of GC but thought he sounded defeated in his pre match interview on the radio ~ can't blame being tired and a busy schedule ~ they are pro football players,hardly digging coal everyday
Then give the likes of Hargreaves and Tomlinson game time, although Southend played a league game mid week so hardly had their feet up.
No point in playing 9 defensive players and expect any attacking threat. 3-5-2 and the ball is by passing the middle 5 Why Coughlan hasn’t changed system as it was obvious to everyone here it wasn’t working after 15 minutes, is beyond me. Unless a miraculous 2nd half performance many here won’t be returning to watch this dire crap anytime soon and attendances will drop and less revenue for the club.
