    New DALLAS

    What do we think? I quite like it. I like how they've brought back the old lot.....Very nostalgic at times whilst the new actors aren't bad either....

    Charlie hebdo

    Pour calmer le jeu après le film Innocence of muslims, Charlie annonce avant tout le monde la sortie d'Intouchables 2! Également dans le journal, les paradis fiscaux de Bernard Arnault, les religieux qui s'engagent pour le mariage homo, et la presse lèche-cul qui remplace la presse...

    Question Stupid ticket question of the day

    Morning you lot, Silly question time i'm afraid, in all the years following the shrimpers and since i've sat in the west I have never not brought my ticket in advance, except today! Now do I still buy tickets from main ticket office? or from the one as you go into the west entrance? Sorry for...
  4. Hopes for the new season

    Ok so there are still a few vacancies in our squad to be filled (most notably the goalkeeper) but the new season is drawing ever closer. After going so close last season and losing 3 key members of that side in Liam Dickinson, Anthony Grant and (probably) Bilel Mohsni what are our chances...

    Question John Brough

    From the match report in Cheltenham's local rag after we tonked them 4-0 at home in April: "Former Robins player, first-team coach and head of youth John Brough is now involved in the backroom staff at Southend and he would have given boss Paul Sturrock plenty of inside information." I never...
  7. Wimbledon 2012

    So with Hewitt out in the 1st round, there are no Aussies in the 2nd round since 1938. Goes to show it's not just the UK where there's a lack of talent being brought through.
  8. Paul Sturrock is the key to next season.

    Now we are not going up, the emotional maelstrom begins. However, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. First, Paul Sturrock is the key to our success next season and must be given at least one more year to get this right. With the uncertainty of our financial situation, players...
  9. Thank You Paul Sturrock.

    Was able to watch both games live here. Obviously gutted like all Blues Fans. However, am not prepared to pull the trigger on the Gaffer just yet. Brought us back from the brink, moved us forward, built on it this year. Frustrating that we've thrown it away. However, I'm convinced you are the...

    Question Play-off final info

    It seems nigh on impossible to find out info on tickets for the final, I know the semi's have to be played yet but a final will take place. What I'd like to know is are tickets sold by club(s) only, or can they be brought from Wembley & does anyone have any idea what the adult / junior prices...

    Drewe Broughton

    I see ' DB' (Double wristBand' has dropped further down with Darlington getting relegated. Shame!
  12. Ryan Hall

    Is Hall injured or still being punished for breaking club rules ? Was his 'crime' worse than Dickenson and Ferdinand or just that he's 'totted up more points' ? Unless he's injured , I can't see why the other two were brought back on Monday and he wasn't. Can anyone enlighten me on this please
  13. TACTICS. Crunch Time.

    We have 3 tactics. 1; Play it out wide, especially from midfield with sideways passing only in their locker, 2; direct (Hoof) up to Dickinson from the back.3; Midfielders bursting through to be an extra striker (Timlin and Ferdinand). This was paying results earlier on in the season as...

    Sturrock has it sussed, well done!

    All this talk of being entertained makes me laugh. Look at what Sturrock was faced with when walking into the job. No money and a squad that had to go. Then ask yourself how the hell would you keep us up in the first season? Bankers to go down from the football league. Sturrock got some...
  15. You, who do you hate?

    Is it; a) Fat crook Evans. b) Fascist Wet Spam scumbag Di 'C*ntio. c) A.N. Other (not to include Dick Bate/Ron Martin/Sturrocks Paul & Blair/Drewe Broughton).

    Memory Lane Greatest Zone post/thread ever!

    Inspired by Pubey's thread about greatest posts of 2012, just spent some time hunting out some of my favourites from years gone by. Some cracking stuff out there... I'll kick off with a couple of gems... ****les adventures in Leyton (couldn't qoute so follow link!)...

    Zone Update The Secret of our Success

    Well it's fairly simple really, it is YOU! It is however worth explaining to all where we are now. In the past 2 years we have nearly trebled the amount of members that use the Zone and this has now caused us to face up to the fact our server space is to small.....Recent issues with crashes...

    The not sure what to call it thread

    So, yesterdays game wasn't good. We all know that, I have a question though......Serious question, do our players ever visit shrimperzone? Because if they ever do then every single player on our team will be playing with there head down in low confidence, all I hear is slagging off, moan moan...

We've got another week til our next match so perfect time for some...
