  5. Sacked or just fed up working for Southend?

    'Southend United is currently seeking a Ticketing and Customer Services Manager to join the Football Club' says the offy. Hardly a surprise given the ticket fiasco against Port Vale when yours truly and dozens of others were given season-ticket cards as the only means of getting into the ground...
  6. Ref Watch ...... Northampton away

    At a ground where we have probably a better record than any other over the last 10 years (played 6 won 4 drawn 2), we have referee Mark Haywood from Wakefield, West Yorkshire in charge. This is his 5th season as a League referee and we have managed to avoid him completely for the last 4 and a...

    Gillingham Away - Tuesday 28th September

    Hi All, One of the local away games. I noticed the details for this game on the web today and am keen to go. I was surprised at only offering an initial 500 tickets for away fans. Do they still use the temporary stand, and if so how many does that house, because surely there wouldn't be...

    Cash coming our way soon!!

    Saw Liverpool v Newcastle Reserves last night , Southend got a few mentions as Michael Ngoo is the star man of the moment up there. The giant ex-shrimper youth player has forced himself into the reckoning with another quality performance, and often out muscled Sol Campbell and his pace + power...

    I didn't realise till today that should we reach the play off finals they are likely NOT to be played at Wembley and probably at Old Trafford, as Wembley is double booked...

    Centre-Backs

    Need a bit of clarification - apologies all, but haven't been to a game this season, so a bit out of the loop. At the moment, I believe we have the following centre backs signed to the first team squad: Graham Coughlan - also reserve team coach Chris Barker - ex-Plymouth, who can also play...

    Memory Lane Eddie Firmani v Eddie Clayton 1:5 - poll now added

    As voting draws to a close in McAlinden v McCrory, it's time to introduce our next tie which is one of the most eagerly anticipated clashes of the round, for me at least, as the two Eddies battle it out. As usual, I'll give you a chance to post up your memories, and before I add the poll.

    Football League Team of the Week

    Congratulations to Josh Simpson and Anthony Grant for being our first players to make it onto the FL Team of the Week this season - slightly more kudos than the NotW or Sunday Mirror's I think! :clap: http://www.football-league.co.uk/staticFiles/a5/55/0,,10794~152997,00.pdf

    The Blues or The Shrimpers?

    I know that this has been discussed before, but with the current positive vibes emenating from RH, is it time to consider moving back to "The Shrimpers" rather than the rather generic "The Blues"? I don't follow "The Blues", I follow "The Shrimpers". The club's nickname should relate to its...

    A little competition

    Ok we have added something new to the Zone today..it is not prominent but the first person to find it and get it right wins a Zone mug and coaster set.....God we are so generous to you lot.:smiles:
  20. Sturrock on Simpson.....

    Anyone else encouraged by Sturrock saying Simpson should be able to get us 10 goals this season? To get 10 you'd think he'd be talking about the whole campaign.....Luggy must therefore be pretty confident about signing him in January. :clap:
