  1. What Becomes of the Broke and Shafted

    Someone great once said that Football isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more than that. Which would explain the pain felt by those when their football club is ripped away from them. As a Southend United supporter, I've had the good grace of never witnessing non-league football and...

    Ron Martin...

    So all the rumours of our financial problems and possible administration have now been confirmed as true then. As one of the "mug punters" conned by Martin and his cohorts into believing that we could help our club by buying shares in it, with promises of a wonderous future and sparkling...

    FORD QUITS WINGS 13/10/2009 Blue Square South club Welling United have confirmed that Andy Ford has resigned from his position as first-team manager with immediate effect. Ford stepped down from his role on Monday, ending his reign which had started in January 2008. Lee Protheroe will...

    It's A Yeung Man's Game

    Carson Yeung's imminent takeover of Birmingham City is a watershed moment for English football. For the first time in history, half of the Premier League is in the hands of overseas investors. Ten clubs, ten multi-millionaire owners, but does Yeung really have a chance of success in the...
  5. ESB's League One Preview - Part 2

    Millwall Last Season: 5th Manager: Kenny Jackett Key Player: Nadjim Abdou, Midfielder. Prediction: 6th Those delightful Bermondsey boys were incredibly unlucky in the Play-Off final last term, losing to Matt Sparrow at Wembley. Keeping their squad together and another season under Kenny...

    Rons Blogg

    Chairman's Blog Firstly before I deal with Q&A there are one or two things to clear up. The first relates to Peter Clarke and an article in today’s Echo. In last week’s blog I set out the position, once again, surrounding Peter but for the record there have been no discussions with Peter...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Dave Smith

    This poll is really a week or so too early. The date of this poll should be 01 May, because that is the date for which Dave Smith will forever be associated with the club, for it was on 01 May 1981 that his side claimed the club's first major trophy* with a 1-1 draw against Rochdale. Dave...

    Is Ashley The April Fool?

    When the watching world assumes that your latest managerial recruitment is an April Fool's prank, it doesn't exactly bode well for the future. Alan Shearer must have often dreamed about the reaction he would get if he ever slipped into the St James Park hotseat, but I bet he didn't expect...

    This Article Took 3 Hours Of My Life...

    ....90 minutes to watch it, 90 minutes to write it. I'll never get that time back. Never. West Ham 0-0 West Bromwich Albion So West Bromwich Albion are just a pretty team are they? Tell that to Rob Green, the West Ham goalkeeper who felt the full wrath of the struggler's newly found nasty...
  10. Stadium delayed "by 10 to 12 months" or possibly 10-12 years !!!

    When are most Shrimperzones going to wake up and smell the coffee

    Before I start this is not an anti Tilly thread, nor a sack the manager / board rant either. What I want to do is to open a discussion regarding the current state of the club and the direction it is going in. I have been supporting the club since 1986, so I am not one of the new fan's that is...

    Jockey wins race after 28 years

    A Dorset dairy farmer has ended his 28-year losing streak as an amateur jockey by finally winning a race. Even Anthony Knott's children poked fun at his efforts but the 44-year-old proved them wrong by romping to victory in the 2.30 at Wincanton in Somerset. After achieving his lifelong...
  13. So Why the Worry?

    I often struggle to comprehend views of football fans in general. The problem is we are all better managers than any current manager in the world when we make comments with hindsight. I think if we as fans are willing to accept Bailey has gone because he wanted out then we have to accept that...

    Chelsea are back.

    It's time for the world to sit up and pay attention because not only are Chelsea are back, but they're better and more beautiful than I've ever seen them before. On the evidence of this overwhelmingly sexy opening day victory, it seems that The New Paper wasn't the only organisation to get a...

    Crowds for next season

    Now i like everyone else is getting very concerned that we have not plugged the gaps from last season. My point is that we have been able to sign good quality signings on the back of good runs in the cup and league and healthy league gates of 8k+ per game. How do you think having a weaker...

    Sir Alex Ferguson

    It's not often that a manager can switch to good, old-fashioned 4-4-2 and be thought of as a tactical genius, but when Sir Alex Ferguson deployed his troops in a formation that many believed he had turned his back on forever, it was another demonstration of why he's still at the top of his game...

    The Dawn In A New Era...

    Last night's support wasn't just amazing, it was something special. Something that you are unlikely to see anywhere in the world of football today. To support the lads as much as we did at 4 and 5-0 down, quite simply was spine tinglingly overwhelming... The Blue Voice has been pushing for this...

    HUNGRY TO PLAY ...AND WIN! 09:00 - 06 November 2007 Forest's promotion push will be fuelled by the squad's fierce appetite for success. That was the message today from skipper Ian Breckin, who admitted that in the past there were a few Reds players who were happy just to collect their pay...

    Snaking your way through the alphabet

    Following on from DTS's poll of the fastest conquest and the poll a little while ago referring to how many partners, I was wondering how many different letters people have achieved. Basically, the idea is that you snake a girl (or indeed a guy for the female members of the Zone) and the first...

    It's coming ...

    "The United States has overstepped its borders in all spheres - economic, political and humanitarian, and has imposed itself on other states. Local and regional wars did not get fewer, the number of people who died did not get less but increased. We see no kind of restraint - a hyper-inflated...
