    God help us.

    God help all the children of tomorrow if this turns out to be their future. Children must learn to worship money. It's all about the profit or you will be classed as a failure in society. Every child must learn how money is made and "how to turn a profit" if Britain is to produce a new...

    Quality club merchandise.

    Nothing is going to beat the SUFC branded car footwear carpets but can anyone beat these for understated style and quality?

    Russel Brand

    The latest hugely funny comment from this moron who hopes to influence the younger generation. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2896125/Russell-Brand-calls-Labour-s-Ed-Balls-clicky-wristed-snidey-c-foul-mouthed-rant-Channel-4.html Honestly, just have a whip round for the diesel and I'll...

    Question Time, Brand v Farage - who will win?

    Who do you think will win? (not who do you want to win) My money is on Farage to come out on top because he has had a lot of practice and Brand often resorts to snide insults when on the back foot.

  10. Ipod tunes "crackling"

    I've noticed that songs on my Ipod have started to "crackle" like an overplayed vinyl album....now surely this is impossible? My headphones are brand new, so can rule out them and it also does it on my Ipod dock at home - and it's only certain songs. Any ideas or have I just destroyed technology?

  15. Ok so 'B' teams are out. Feeder clubs are out. What SHOULD we do?

    So the FA have come up with their master plan for improving the quality of the English game and as a result the England side. And predictably their suggestions have found themselves the victim of an almighty backlash...

    "Plymouth Argyle have announced that they have agreed a deal to allow Guy Branston to leave Home Park.

    Phil brown, does he risk becoming damaged goods?

    I'm not a great believer in chopping and changing managers and I was willing to give Paul Sturrock another season, even though I accepted that his brand and style of football was not universally appreciated. In the end players and managers come and go, Southend United is, hopefully, eternal and...

    Zone Fundraising It's that time again.

    It is a without doubt that you all support us at times when you can afford it. We are well aware over the past few years that for a lot of people spare cash is not easy to come by.. The Zone can only exist by covering the costs to run it..Because we are probably detrimental to our cause at times...
