The Opposition View - Southend United

The Opposition View - Southend United


In the wake of yesterday's 3-2 defeat at Southend United, here are some views on the game from the Shrimpers' manager Paul Sturrock and a few of their fans.

"In the first-half we weren't at the races, they were the much better side and they deserved to go in leading the game," said Sturrock.

"I had words at half-time and got it into their heads about the tempo of the game and making sure that everybody worked much harder."

"We came out very fast, our tempo was much higher, we got in their faces and we were a much better team in the second half."


The Southend fans knew they had seen a Jekyll and Hyde performance from both sides and were delighted to have come out on top.

The following extracts are from shrimperzone and BBC606.

'First half was utter gash - worst we've played at home all season, which is saying something. Second half - unbelievable character shown by just about everyone and a much better tempo to our performance. It was clear that PS had put a rocket up their backsides.'

'Talk about a 'losing mentality'. Until we scored that equalizer, I can honestly say I've never seen a team more resigned to a loss from the first minute!'

'Absolutely brilliant. First half, we were as poor as Wycombe were second half. Thoroughly unexpected three points for me, had all my dosh on a 1-1 draw! Delighted for the lads, shows that there's a bit of heart and passion in the squad now.'

'What a crazy game, but it's all about getting three points in the bag. 17 Cup Finals now - 33ish points needed for the play-offs, 8 games at home, 11 against teams below us and only a few above us. This league is poor and if we can continue on this run and get Moshi back in April then the return fixture v Wycombe could be a promotion decider.'

'A woeful first half against a fairly lacklustre Wycombe. We kept hoofing it when it clearly wasnt working -They showed how easy it is to play it on the floor and Pittman's goal was excellent. Second half was completely different, and for once we made the most of set pieces. I thought both penalties were soft, but for us to get our heads up and win it in stoppage time showed the character of this team.'

'I think our pen was a bit generous to be honest, but then again we've had countless dodgy ones given against us so I'll take it.'

'Terrific result in a game of two halves. I had a feeling that we'd let them back in, but to grab the winner so quickly after their equaliser was fantastic. How good did it feel to win it right at the end and go home smiling!'
