    Teaching RE

    I'm ready for the banter, and have no problem with it at all, but think that this article is very interesting regarding the place of RE in our schools: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6417096 It begins: And it goes on... I think a few on here need to really take stock of that...
  3. Southend Utd Surprise Moments

    Just to take our minds off the winning run so it can continue quietly in the background - what is your most surprising Southend Utd moment? My first wife was from Finland and I had worked there for a year too in a town called Valkeakoski - you may know where this is going. On a visit back to...
  4. Question Freddy Eastwood

    Remember this guy? Scored a load of goals for us a few years back? Started the season in the best form of the last five years? Any idea when he is due back? Could do with him now that Cauley is banned.
  5. Dan Bentley- new career as a lineman

    I got the below email from a friend yesterday , thought it might be of interest . Made me smile and it acts a reminder that our players have 'normal' lives as well. Rightly or wrongly I cant see a premiership starlet doing this My brothers team (Sky Athletic) won 2-0 v Eversley Sports (who...

    Official Match Thread Southend United vs Mansfield Town

    White returns from suspension but Phillips serves the second game of his three-match ban. Interesting Line up for tonight
  7. Blatter on race hate!

    I agree with him:stunned:. Pointless fining or even forcing these clubs to play behind closed doors,They need to be banned from European competitions indefinitely until such times as their supporters cease their behaviour .

    Banning Order

    What's this I hear about a banning order for The Hitman ? Apparently been banned but with no reasoning, surely the zone isn't getting back to the bad old days of over zealous mods?

    Who would you replace Coker with this Friday ?

    Apparently he'll serve a one match ban on Friday, after his sending off last week. Who would your replacement be ?
  11. Football Fans and Cps

    On reading todays news about the new Initiative by the CPS About dealing with football hooliganism online and at matches i have some concerns. I don't condone Racism,Homophobia,or Violence it has no place in Football or society. But my concerns lay on how many just normal fans will fall...

    As a manager I would change..........

    Di Canio has banned mobile phones, ketchup and mayonnaise from the training ground at Black Cats. He explains why clearly and it makes sense, mainly. If you were manager in the current game what would you change now so much more is organised and specified, measured and prepared for.......what's...

    The Globe Pub, Leicester bans British soldiers for fear of upsetting "non-nationals"

    The Globe Pub, Leicester bans British soldiers for fear of upsetting "non-nationals" I have no idea if this is genuine or not (I have no idea if the Daily Bale is a parody or what), but if there is any truth in this at all, it's a total disgrace...
  14. Cobblers away support

    According to there forums they are bringing down 1000-1100 for the game, should be some cracking banter !!

    Question Should we appeal Barry Corr's red card?

    Having just seen the footage on Blues Player, it seems exceptionally harsh on BBBC to get a straight red for what was effectively a little tussle. I've watched it a good 4 or 5 times and appear to have missed the supposed 'kicking out' from Corr, but he's still now facing a 3 game ban. Should we...
  16. Ban smoking outdoors?

    Interesting article from the Beeb about the use of pub gardens now being used by smokers in the hot months, discouraging those who do not partake from sitting outside. It's being banned in some USA states and there are laws in place in Oz & NZ. Jersey seemingly looking at going that extra step...
  17. Today's Game

    Hi Everyone, I've been watching the Zone from afar for quite a few years now, and as a Southend fan for most of my life I've always enjoyed the banter, various opinions and often lively transfer rumours on the zone! Anyway my first post is to introduce myself - my name is Adam Duffill, I've...

  20. David Cameron's p0rn filter

    So David Cameron is proposing that every internet connection has p0rn filtered out, and if you want it you have to OPT in. Do you think this is a good idea? Arguments for: - It's pretty easy for kids to see some truly nasty p0rn at the moment - Porn can be addictive, and it's not particularly...
