BROWN’S VITAL DNA MESSAGE
PHIL Brown has ordered Southend’s new signings to watch and learn in order to buy into the philosophy that won them promotion.
The Shrimpers had not secured a win in League One before this weekend – and had only hit the back of the net once. And Brown says his summer arrivals must adapt to the club rather than the other way round.
“Maybe, just maybe, those we’ve brought in, the likes of Noel Hunt, David Mooney, Anthony Wordsworth, Joe Pigott, they just need to sit and watch the work-rate and mentality of the group,” he said.“We just need everyone’s mentality collectively, so our DNA isn’t lost with promotion.”
