Southend succumb to pier pressure
A 3-0 win at Southend yesterday and three in three games for Sam Baldock. Only pre-seaaon friendlies but anything that gets Sam's confidence going has to be good. The game was also notable for the fact that Jordan Spence scored - I'd forgotten he was still at the club having been loaned out to Bristol City. More worrying is that Reid and McCartney are our only available centre backs, what with Tomkins being in Team GB, and Macca is playing out of position. Maybe David Haye could do a decent job at Upton Park as an emergency defender...
