  6. Car Tax

    With the changes being implemented in October i believe as you will no longer have a physical disc to display, my question is : Isn't about time this was abolished perhaps in favour of adding a couple of pence per litre to fuel to cover the shortfall in revenue? My reasonings behind this are...

    After having a chat with Naps and Steven's relatives on Saturday we asked what we The Zone members should do to honour him at his funeral. It was decided that we should send flowers from all of us. Although the date has not been set yet we feel now is the time to ask those that knew him and...

First...

  11. Question Southend United Sticker Book/Card Collection?

    Hi all, I have come up with an idea of making a Southend United sticker book/card collection. I will be making the sticker book/card folder myself and the stickers/cards will be all of my own photos. I can then possibly sell it, after asking permission from the club of course, which i reckon i...

    Re: Prospects - Time to make a stand

    Re: Prospects - Time to make a stand So what with the Echo article the other week, it appears Prospects are again playing hard ball. You can in a way see their point, failed completions etc, but as a local business and not a private site for personal gain. Surely it is in their interest to go...
