  1. question ???

    Why did we sign besentie Gomes it must be going through other fans minds as to why Phil brown has brought him in only for him to monly see the pitch during the warm ups .And then sit on the bench game after game .Surly if this guy was good enough then give him some game time .IF he isnt then why...

    What traditions do you keep at Christmas?

    As it's Christmas Eve, I thought it would be interesting to read about Zoners' family traditions at Christmas time, maybe some from when you were a child, maybe some if you have children now. As the eldest grandchild, I got to "enjoy" the strictest of my grandad's rules - no presents until...

    Wigan sack Coyle

    As Shrimpers fans we have been very quiet when it comes to linking PB with managerial vacancies. At one time he was linked with nearly every job that came up, but now, even though there have been many departures, it is a subject not given any time to. I see the latest vacancy, Wigan, as the most...
  5. Question PB v PS

    The way PS left and its timing created a great deal of negative rep for RM and that was compounded for many by the appointment of PB. I wondered now how many people have changed their minds about the gaffer or are willing to give him more time? The club has well publicised off-field problems...

    AZ Alkmaar v Atromitos abandoned 57 mins rest of match to be played tomorrow

    AZ Alkmaar's Europa League game was abandoned tonight due to a small fire at the stadium. Interesting that the remainder of the match is to be played tomorrow at 11am. I still feel that a similar rule should be brought in for League matches here. We all know about our game at Aldershot last...
  7. Embargo

So what is the state of the club...

    Shops you never noticed.

    Despite walking past it every day for a decade this morning I noticed the magnificently named Imperial Caesar Italian Menswear shop on Fenchurch Street which looks as though it specialises in suits which have no doubt graced magistrates courts across the land and brought grief to any owner who...

    Fulham Season Review 2012/13

    Enjoyed watching Fulham's 2012/13 dvd review this evening.Reasonably good value at just under 16 quid. Anyone remember the days when we regularly brought out an end of the season video/dvd? I know we're skint but couldn't we have justified bringing out something to celebrate our first ever...

    Care Providers in Essex

    Hi folks, not sure if anyone else on here is a carer and has a parent that has care provided for them by ECC. Had a run-in with my mum's care providers, Carewatch, today over her medication. Basically her meds are provided by the pharmacy in blister packs, ready sorted into doses but last time...
  11. The Maharajah of Hockley


    Just had one of the greatest - some would say life-changing - steaks of recent times (28oz medium rare rib-eye, I should add)...so beautiful it almost brought me to TEARS. So, fellow zoners, how do you eat yours?

    The Green Man Pub Today

    I know they must be used to big crowds but the set up was immense. To take in about 5000 fans with nobody really waiting to be served by the inside and outside bars and the food choices they put out around the venue was simply superb. Fantastic to see so many Shrimper Fans there and for PS to...

    Hot Cross Buns...

    As it's Easter weekend, I'm sure plenty of us have been tucking into these bakery delights. On our last day at work this week, the Headteacher brought in buns for us all, with two pots of jam - strawberry and apricot. Now, this got me thinking, I'd never had apricot jam on a hot cross bun...

    What players are likely to be lured by the appointment of PB to our club?

    Seeing as PB 'could' be seen as a high profile appointment, albeit out of the game for a while, what players are likely to be tempted to have a couple of seasons by the seaside? His media work should have brought him into contact with loads of players, so I'd be interested in everyone's...
  15. Straker

    I am sorry but I don't know why Sturrock brought this player in .Even chris Philips has said the guy is a poor defender .He almost cost us dear today . We must have a better left back in the squad .And if we haven't I suggest P S goes in search of one quick .:thumbdown:

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...

    What should I do?

    I've been in need of a new winter jacket for a while, and after a couple of weeks looking on the internet ordered a North Face coat for £240. Yesterday it arrived, but the box seemed awfully big and unneccessary. I opened it to find they'd sent me FOUR coats! I checked the email order &...
