Gives us a bit more time to regroup after we lose at Dagenham on Saturday.

Dover game rescheduled as below.

Why on earth would Currie take an assistant role behind someone with a worse track record than him at a basket case club?
It’s a job? And it’s not like us being a basket case club has stopped him applying the last two times the main gig has been available…

We now know Mark Bentley is definitely involved not sure if he being employed as the coach or assistant so every chance it won’t be Currie anyway

That gets my vote if it is true.

Coaching side is spot on for what we need at this moment in time.

GET IN!

Absolutely fantastic appointments. The change won't be instant, but it will be a positive change.

King Kev Head Coach - good track record with players and a thorough professional.

Darren Currie Assistant Head Coach - great knowledge of this league.

Mark Bentley - 1st team coach - good local knowledge.

All three are Pro Licence holders.

You ask why Currie would want to come here, because we have made the second tier of English football not just once but twice and if Barry fry had had a bit of loyalty in him, would have possibly made it 3 times.

We have a town that has filled our stadium every game we have played at that level and with the plan being put in place there is every chance we will be on the up very shortly and he wants to be a part of it. Simples!

Still the same shit owner though although I think he’s realised only now the division is not easy. Bizarre Currie would leave a decent coaching role at Sheff Utd to be assistant at a level he has managed at already, shows a lack of ambition or the owner is actually spending some money.

Maher to be out in 12 months time with the club still stagnating, Currie to step into his shoes and Southend will be roaring. He’s a great influence around the club and exactly what yhe club needs (except Ron departing ofc)

Having Currie and Vilhete at rival clubs in the same division is truly heartbreaking.

I think I read Currie left Sheffield in the summer? Might be wrong

Sell out in the away end at Daggers on Saturday now.

Not expecting a result, but in support of the new era.

I remember when we got all excited about a management appointment nearly 2 years ago. Everyone was buzzing. Turned to shit though.

As long as you have the cancer at the top of the club I don’t think you are going anywhere soon, not that I have any bad feelings towards you.

More important appointments to come in the scouting and recruitment people for me. I'm still of the opinion that with Ron in charge it doesn't particularly matter who comes in on the coaching side, they'll still have to deal with him, they still have to wonder if and when they are being paid and whether any of the budget spoken about is the realistic figure or fantasy.

It's up to Ron now, especially when other people take a step back, to either stop meddling and change his ways or just carry on the same and keep interfering in every facet of the club.
