    118118 call costs

    Ever use 118118? You might like to think again; "Calls to 118 118 cost £4.49 per call plus £4.49 per minute (a minimum 60 second charge applies) including VAT (tariff code SC087) plus the Access Charge set by the caller's landline or mobile phone provider.". They even charge that after they put...
  2. Tenancy Advice... Damage not caused by us!

    I was looking to see if any of my fellow Shrimpers were able to offer some advice in regards to our tenancy (more for peace of mind as I think we are completely in the right). Part of our Tenancy Agreement is that we must maintain all white goods that have been supplied. Recently our washer...
  3. The quality of match officials

    Although Phil Brown has quite possibly over-reacted to some of the refereeing decisions that have gone against us this season, I get the impression from match reports on this forum that more dubious decisions by match officials have gone against us than in our favour. Certainly, some poor...

    Zone Update Zone Sponsorship

    Hi all, I guess we had to change our thoughts as the Internet and all things techy move on. We in all honesty as site owners have fought change at every obstacle. We always put you our members first at every point in our thinking, but when costs go up we can't keep begging to you to cover...

    Fundraising v Bury for Little Havens Hospice: Roots To the 92 Book Signed Copies

    A little fundraising for next Sunday at the game v Bury. I have a few copies of my Roots To the 92 book hanging around the house and, at the game v Bury, our 1980's international striker Derek Spence (who wrote the Foreword) will be there with me together with Keith Mercer. For anyone that...
  7. Fly tippers

    Crazy crazy from councils ! I know a guy who did rubbish clearance by the book,he was forced to obtain a waste license costing £150 plus,then councils ordered every council tip to stop the legal abiding clearers from using the tip.He then began to use waste stations whose fees are mentally...

    We've lost two on the trot - What to do?

    First Bolton and now Charlton, two defeats and the wheels have fallen off, what the **** is going on? What can I do to advertise my total state of upset and disappointment. I know, I'll start a thread about Striker options on the bench that way I can really get posters...

    Next season

    With us now out of the play-offs and yesterday showing how shallow our squad is, it got me thinking as to where we could end up next season if we don't make the play-offs this year. We've got quite a few players out of contract, a few who are getting older and some who might be angling for a...
  10. Well done Boreham Wood !

    Brilliant stuff from the Wood. Mum dad and 2 kids under 12 can purchase an ST for £260...that equates to 11 quid per game,superb value . Today's hard pressed parents need as much help as possible. How much would the same ST cost for say Arsenal...couple of grand?...3k ?...,4K ?.,.how much at...
  11. Season Tickets

    Please note if you intend to renew your Season Ticket it will cost you an extra £5 if you do it at the ticket office.Some of you may already know this but I didn't read the small print saying renewing online saves you that admin fee.

    Hi people, there are few players we have taken to heart who became one of us over the years. Adam loves our club, you only have to look through the Zone posts, twitter comments from other players and facebook to know we all really feel the same. Lets do something about this! We did it for Steve...

  14. The Big Dady


    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...

    A goal poacher in January

    Just a thought, but again last night highlighted our lack of a goal scoring threat or more like a poacher. We again played some decent football and again Cox and Ranger linked up well as did Wordsworth and the midfield. But at the moment very much like Walsall and Swindon, both games could have...

    Cost per match for you

    Inspired by another thread, on average, what does it cost you per home game, including travel? (Petrol, parking, bus, train, other)?

    Match of the Day - Chelsea

    I don't normally watch MotD but it was on BBC1 this morning and I watched a bit. The match that really caught my eye was Chelsea v Everton. I have no love for Chelsea at all, but from the highlights shown they were absolutely awesome, Hazzard and Costa especially. When players are in that sort...
