  1. Schwegler in doubt for Sunday's game after training incident, injury to toe. We can't take a trick.
  2. Simon Cox: Southend United striker leaves club by mutual consent Simon Cox was named Southend United player of the season with 17 goals last season Southend United striker Simon Cox has left the club after terminating his contract by mutual consent. Cox, 32, spent three and a half years at Roots Hall after joining on a free transfer from Reading. "The pleasure was all mine. Good luck for the future - I'll be back at Roots Hall one day," Cox said on Twitter. The Republic of Ireland international has joined Western Sydney Wanderers in Australia's A League on a deal until the end of next season. His previous clubs also include Swindon, West Brom and Nottingham Forest.
  3. Exactly, that what it sounds like to me. Babbel's all in play here to hold on to his job. If it works he may keep he's job, if it doesn't then he goes and the new manager is then stuck with a striker he didn't choose himself. We then go around the same circle again.
  4. Western Sydney Wanderers FCan hr ago Western Sydney Wanderers FC are proud to announce the signing of experienced Irish striker Simon Cox until the end of the Hyundai A-League 2020/21 season. Cox has played over 500 games in England’s Championship, League One and cup competitions scoring 134 goals. A powerful centre-forward, Cox has played for Reading, Bristol City, West Brom, Nottingham Forest and most recently Southend United. A player who provides goals and link-up play, Cox has been the top scorer for Southend United for the past three seasons scoring 45 goals and 26 assists in 172 games for the club. The 32-year-old has 30 Irish international caps to his name since his national team debut in 2011, scoring four goals. Cox said he was looking forward to a big challenge with the Red & Black. “I’m really looking forward to it, I’ve never been to Australia so I’m looking forward to come over and score some goals, that’s what I’m there to do, and that’s what I’ve been doing most my career. I’m expecting a big challenge,” said Cox. “I spoke to Adam Le Fondre (Sydney FC striker) this morning and he said great things about the league and the Wanderers set-up. I spoke to Radi (Radoslaw Majewski) as well, who I played with at Nottingham Forest, and he said really good thing about club too so I am really looking forward to arriving and getting started. “I’m expecting it to be tough, you’ve got to get acclimatised which can be tough but I am looking forward to the challenge. As someone who’s played at the top level I’m not taking anything for granted and I’m looking forward to every challenge that comes my way in the A-League. “It’s an honour to come and play for the club and I hope that we can build something together as a club, looking forward to playing in front of what I’ve been told is the best fans in the A-League and I hope that we have some good times ahead,” finished Cox. Cox arrives in Australia on Sunday prior to the Wanderers double header against Perth Glory at Bankwest Stadium.

  7. Unless they can score from 40 metres out it won't make any difference, we can't get the ball to them.
  8. Do we want to recruit players like Meier.
  9. I thought the same thing, so I went back and watched the game. I don't really know if we were that good I think it was more the case that Victory were extremely poor. It was only in the last 20 minutes that Victory were all over us and could of salvaged a draw. We were lucky to hang on.
  10. He's got another year to go on his contract. Signed for three this is second year.
  11. We just can't keep turning over players ever year. We need some loyalty and whose to say we can get better than what we've got. Especially with the Australian players. If we keep turning over players eventually we won't be able to attract quality players. Georgievski, Yeboah and Ziegler are contracted till 20/21 and McGowan till 21/22. Off those four at this stage the only one I would keep would be Georgievski. Unless we can do something with the others then these four will be with us for a start.
  12. Would prefer we give it to Haliti, with Heff and Beauchamp to come in too when the W-league finishes. The season is a write off anyway, bring in some people who understand the mentality required for this club. We've got nothing to lose now. Give these guys the interim gig and find a proper replacement for the off season. Agree with this. It is now up to the management to work which players we resigned, the likes of Lopar, Duke, Jurman, Muller and Schwegler who are of contract after this season before other teams step in namely Macarthur. Regardless of who the coach is players need to be resigned now for stability more than anything.
