To preserve their current standing in the Championship, Portsmouth have decided to field an under strength side in cup competitions this season. The dilemma facing Cotterill is that the weakest team he could field was also in fact his strongest selection - reap what you sow fishes.....

Some will say I'm a know-all but I've a relative who is a friend of one of the directors at Southend United. News being bandied about is:

The Club are fighting tooth and nail to hold onto the management team but they admittedly say they cannot be 100% sure of succeeding. Should they depart they'll look to bring in an experienced manager to work alonside a younger man. The experienced one I've not a clue but Kevin Maher is still talked about with affection at Roots Hall and he could be the younger guy they go for. Hopefully the present regime remains in tact.

It is unlikely Ryan Hall will sign a second extention at Roots Hall - Next summer he'll have a year left on his contract and it is then the Club will consider selling if an acceptable offer is made.

Anthony Grant has been unhappy with Blues for some time. Theres an outside chance he'll go in january but its more likely his deal will wind down next summer when he can depart for nothing.

Nothing concrete about Barker or Corr going back to Home Park should the management team return there but players have been lined up for Southend to sign soon. but looking to improve the squad is an everyday ongoing thing.

It;s been said Peter Gilbert is a little unsettled in this neck of the woods and he could be one that returns to Plymouth should Sturrock and coughlan go back as they are admirers of the Left back. This might the reason Gilbert is playing out of his skin at the mo. looking for takers.

Whilst Ron is involved with Blues there's no chance of Steve Tilson returning to Roots Hall.

This is honestly what I've been told but take it as you will.

Hall and Grant are to good for league 2 but maybe next season league 1 or is it all about money ?

Yes thats true ! but my mums brothers uncle terry ,works in the canteen ,and his mates dads brothers aunty (who makes the sandwiches ) had heard this , and if it happenes the clubs painter and decorator who knows steve maclaren (cause he paints his house ) has been asked if he would step in.
the club are prepared to give him a one year contract and a set of new brollies!
good things ahead for southend!
