    Essex Senior Cup Final

    Last night's Essex Senior Cup Final (originally postponed back in March) featured a whole raft of ex-Shrimpers for both AFC Hornchurch and Colchester United. Tommy Black put Hornchurch in front by tucking home from close-range early in the second half before one-time Blues youngster Freddy...

    Breaking News Reply from Justin King

    Dear Mr Lewis Thank you for your recent email concerning the future of Southend United FC. I do understand how important the Club is to the town and I appreciate that the current uncertainty surrounding the Club is not satisfactory to the supporters. However, despite what you may have heard...

    Some reforms to consider

    1 - Scrap televised debates (the one's that started this year with the 3 main party leaders). That's nothing to do with policy and more to do with media training. 2 - Ban politicians in office and candidates as soon as they are standing for office from appearing on 'entertainment' programmes...
  5. The Hand of Frog.

    While you're reading this, Giovanni Trapatoni will be giving his statement to an array of police equipped with notebooks and forensic packs, as one of the greatest robberies of sporting history occurred tonight. No more than three years ago, Thierry Henry lambasted Barcelona for their...

    They Miss Him

    He may not have been there in person, but His presence hung around Wembley Stadium on Sunday like an over-tanned spectre. It lurked in every corridor, loomed over every conversation and sometimes, if you listened very, very carefully to a frequency only just on the cusp of human hearing, you...
  7. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-2 Huddersfield Town

    Thought there were a lot of positives today which outweighed the negatives. IMO it was 2 points dropped (which is bitterly dissapointing) but considering we were playing a highly rated team, i think we performed very well and controlled/dominated proceedings for large portions of the game...

  9. Question Is The Zone Getting Boring With Bannings.

    Yes it's a fair question, this site used to be funny every time I took a butchers but now it's getting a bit boring and I rarely post as it's full of PC lefties who shout anyone down and ban anyone with different views. There were always arguments with myself, Radbloke the Cockroach, Westcliff...

    Think what you like about the BNP

    But some of what they say does make sense... The BBC has pulled an appearance by British National Party leader Nick Griffin on today’s Politics Show at the last moment out of fear that his suggestions for the control of expense claims by members of parliament would find popular appeal...

    I wish I'd Gone To Hayes

    Barcelona 0-0 Chelsea So was it Guus Hiddink's tactics or Petr Cech's saves? Was it the referee and his failure to spot a late tug on Theirry Henry or was it Barcelona's inability to take their chances? Chelsea fans won't give two hoots. The net result of this rather grim affair was a scoreless...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-2 Leceister City

    Steve Mildenhall 7 Didn't play badly but didn't have to much to do, couldn't have done anything about either goal really Simon Francis 4 Worst performance this year. Gave the ball away easily, no need to handball for pen (which was harsh), didn't mark at all, weak tackling, poor passing, etc...

    Proudest moments being a Shrimper

    Being reasonably new to this board I'll apologise in advance to you 'older' members as I'm sure this thread would have been posted before. Reading about Alan Moody triggered off the nostalgic side of me and I started going over some of the greatest moments being a blue. One of the most vivid was...
  14. Stadium Costs and Debt (General)

    Article on Tottenham (& Liverpool) saying construction costs have fallen as much as 30% but ability to raise debt is practically zero. If Spurs & Liverpool are struggling then I just can't see how Ron is going to do it. Tottenham Says Credit Crunch Will Cut Stadium Cost (Update1) 2009-03-20...

    United Crushed By Rampant Reds

    Manchester United 1-4 Liverpool (Ronaldo 23) (Torres 28) (Gerrard 44, pen) (Aurelio 77th) (Dossena, 90+1) Old Trafford has never emptied so quickly. Even before Manchester United were put out of their misery by referee Alan Wiley, there were more empty seats than supporters. Those...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-4 Chelsea

    Scolari Safe... For Now Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be in the mood to be pleasant to any of his players after a week of backbiting and under-achievement, but if he has any sense, he'll give Petr Cech a very firm pat on the back. The word 'crisis' may be overused in football, but had it not been...
  19. Question Passion

    You can bet your bottom dollar that the teams in the bottom third will be putting 100% efforts to move out and away from the drop zone. Are we up to doing the same to keep our distance. With a view to a possible dogfight in the relegation battle, which players have enough of the qualities...

    Defending and Midfielding!!

    This isn't really a new point, but as it's topical based on today, thought I'd bring it up again - if nothing else, it gets me nearer to 1,000 posts on here :) Yorkshire Blue and myself (actually, probably most people) have long been saying the problem we have yet to properly resolve with our...
