Surprised there isn't a thread for this already.

Getting nervous now. We lost 4-2 at Stevenage in the season but beat them at Roots Hall.

Had kept 7 clean sheets in a row before the Morecambe debacle.

Going for 2-1 Stevenage.

Come on Southend FFS! I really really really don't want Graham Westley back in League One! Please don't mess this up!

I don't mean to be disresptful but i won't watch this as i doubt it will keep me awake after a few beers and a large dinner as for who i want to win? Southend as if we get to Wembley our players won't be kicked off the park as they would be if Westley's thugs beat Southend and IF we get there on thursday night.

I can't see anything other than a Southend victory over the 2 legs.

They'd be rolling around on the floor no matter who they played Mowgs!

Want a Southend win, would like to get to Stevenage next year

I fancy Stevenage to win the home leg, they'll be direct, powerful and up for it. If Southend can come away with a draw I think they'd be pleased.

Dave Beasant on the bench, just makes you want the Stevenage keeper to pick up a knock now. I swear he was past it when he played for us.

Dan Bentley is such a Joe Hart wannabe with the short sleeves etc.

Why is Stevenage's pitch awful?

Because they're an awful club with an awful manager.

It's annoying how much of a dick Barry Corr is. Wouldn't be surprised if he's sent off tonight.

That was horrible.

Good game so far, but no real clear cut chances. Atmosphere sounds great.

Of course it's up to the player and the staff, but surely he cannot be allowed to stay on after that?

Can't believe he's come back on. How can you be clear headed and fit for purpose after that???

Shouldn't have been allowed back on the pitch there. Poor from Stevenage.

Under the new rules it's up to the physio/doctor and no one else. Either way he shouldn't be back on that pitch.

I didn't think it was up to them anymore, I thought they had to go off? If he comes back out for the second half I would be surprised.

He's risking rather serious head injury by playing on. At Uni we had a seminar about it all, and the minimum requirement after a head injury is to be monitored for all sorts of different signs for a while after a blow. No way he should be out there.

As said by others, that was disgusting. Staggered Dembele came back on. Timlin looked gutted but Southend made the right call in taking him off.

I hope Dembele is subbed at half time.
