Phil Brown set to be appointed as Southend United manager

25 Mar

PHIL Brown is expected to be unveiled as Southend’s new manager later today following yesterday’s bizarre sacking of Paul Sturrock.
The Scot was dismissed in a lengthy, poorly constructed and at times baffling statement from the chairman Ron Martin yesterday. In a unique move though, he will return to the club to take charge of the JPT final at Wembley in a fortnight, where he is expected to get an excellent reception from Blues supporters.
Brown spent six years as assistant to current west ham boss Sam Allardyce at Bolton, before taking charge of Derby, Hull City and Preston. He was dismissed as manager of the Lilywhites in December 2011 and has not been employed in a managerial role since.
Brown is a strong advocate of using sports science to anaylyse performance. He has also been involved in several controversial incidents during his managerial career to date.
All At Sea would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Sturrock for everything he has done for the club, particularly saving the club from oblivion in his first season and some of the results and performances away from home. The bad luck the club has had with injuries this season has ultimately cost him his job. Whether Ron Martin’s decision is the correct one, only time will tell.
