  1. F1 2018

    Well it needs to be done, (for all you petrol heads out there)...As the new race season begins in Australia this weekend, I thought it would be apt, to get this thread underway. This is my take on it.... From what I've heard / read, the media think it will be a big Hamilton v Vettel affair to...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Bury FC 3- 2 Southend United

    So endeth the 2015/16 lesson, apt for a Sunday maybe. So close to a point and then our last minute hoodoo strikes again. Still Mooney scored and more importantly the Mooose did as well, welcome home Franck. It will be interesting to hear the away boys and girls views on the Moose and the game.

    Players with positionally apt initials

    Is Cian Bolger unique in this regard, or can we think of other Shrimpers whose initials are also their playing positions?

    Zone Update Personal abuse and turning The Zone into a playground.

    This has to stop chaps and ladies.. The Zone is becoming farcical with all the childish abuse and tit for tat rubbish. We should all be free to debate issues and opinions etc without every thread turning into a pantomime and ruining these forums for the majority. The same few people are...

    Hull City Fan fighting for his life after the game.

    Unfortunate news just received that our Shrimper (Bluemoon ) sister in laws cousin suffered a heart attack at the match v Hull City. He's fighting for his life since then in Basildon Hospitals cardiac unit and all his family have been called to him as it's touch and go and fear the worst...

    For all those able to forget what has happened to Tilly.....

    ....and don't like singing "stevie tilson's blue & white army". Those riding high on the back of sturrock mania after a great result friday and another [win] tonight, I recall the song sheffield wednesday fans used to sing when sturrock was their boss, and as I'm always in favour of an...

    Memory Lane SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ian Benjamin

    It's the answer to the most famous question in Southend United history: who put the ball in the Bury net? And as every Southend fan will gleefully tell you: Ian Benjamin, Ian Benjamin. Now this poll's been a long time coming*, but in some ways that's apt. *He received the required nominations...

    Lets give Brushy a Big Thank You

    After last night we got chatting and thought that it would be a great idea if Paul Brush recieved some sort of token of our appreciation for his sterling efforts. Not forgetting that he and Tilly were a team during clubs most successful periods and should be awarded some token of our gratitude...

    My two cents

    I'm getting very irritated with the lack of news regarding new faces or even links to new faces that could potentially join Southend United. As soon as we beat Cheltenham we lost two of our key players in the season with the end of Dervite and Robinson's loans from Tottenham and Watford...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Clark Pt II

    Paul Clark was probably better remembered for his second spell at the club, so maybe it would be more apt to be elected on his second ballot. His first ballot saw him receive the second highest number of votes so far (only Stan has had more than the Viking's 88). Now I'm sure a factor in this...

    Coldplay in the Bushfire concert

    I find myself in a bit of a quandry here. I've been a bit anti-Coldplay in the past and I'm actually very cynical when it comes to charity concerts by big name acts, always wondering if it's because of the charity or their own careers. However here is a YouTube clip of Coldplay playing Fix You...

    Battle of the Sitcoms - THE FINAL !!!!!!

    Ok ok, i know the second semi hasn't quite finished, but it'd take a cunning plan of Baldrick proportions for that result to change so i'm using poetic licence to kick this off now so i can get some work done :( Well, i think its been fun and extremely well fought, and after 30 matches and 2285...

    Drewnaldo @ Gills!

    Broughton having a trial with Gills.Apt in all ways but at the same time somewhat strange.I'll explain Apt:...They have an almost all ex shrimpers side( Bet their fans love that!) Strange:...Why would Stimson need to use a trial to confirm he is no good!?

    Goombay Dance Band

    So we are to 'pleasured' at our last home game by the wrold renowned Goombay Dance Band. I seem to remember a hazy recollection form my childhood of my mum buying a record of theirs that was a Top 10 in the Hit Parade called "Seven Tears" This song will be apt one way or...
