Southend boss Phil Brown apparently brought in television presenter Jeremy Kyle to give his side's half time team-talk against Morecambe today.
Midfielder Matthew Lund tweeted the following.

While Guardian reporter Daniel Taylor also backs up the bizarre rumour.
Thought this was a joke at first but, no, it seems Phil Brown did actually bring in Jeremy Kyle to give Southend's team-talk today . .
