  1. Reading Shrimper

    Great News! Roots Hall plans approved

    The Council have approved the plans to re-develop Roots Hall. Surely great news ahead of the public enquiry tomorrow! http://www.thisissouthend.co.uk/display.var.1710874.0.roots_hall_sainsburys_plan_agreed.php :) :) :) :)
  2. Tilson Out !!

    Glad to see a decent manager at the Hall - nothing like a close up on BOOT-it Boothroyd to show us how football should be played - BOOT-it and win the throw in and then scrap for the corner - class tactics from the man who shook the Prem-****e. And seriously when is Tilson going to learn how...

    Who is your No.1 In the World?!? (Could develop into NSFW)

    I managed to stumble across the FHM 100 Sexiest women magazine at work and was amazed at certain entries like 38 - JOSS STONE! How the **** she got in there I don't know. How Jessica Alba is No.1 when yer ok she is fit but she is No Kelly Brook, Keeley Hazell, Jennifer Ellison the list goes...
  4. How ambitious are you ?

    I sometimes wonder how ambitious Shrimpers are - as sometimes it seems there are many who are not very ambitious at all. To me it seems entirely feasible to develop SUFC into a well run Championship club - to grow the local/regional support and to compete long term at the second tier of UK...

    Companies to ask for help RE: My trip to Ethiopia...

    Hi guys, As some of you will have read, I am in the privilaged position of being sent to Ethiopia this summer to work in a school working with street children, mainly boys, and helping young women develop their confidence in English so that they can find better jobs which make them less...

    Has anyone seen his interview on the Official Site ? . This guy is absolutely Top Drawer .Our Youth System is in very Safe Hands ,and if you listen to the Ademeno interview ,he gives him a glowing report as well in the way that he's helped him develop .It all sounds very promising for the...

    Red Riding Hood - The PC Version

    There once was a young person named Little Red Riding Hood who lived on the edge of a large forest full of endangered owls and rare plants that would probably provide a cure for cancer if only someone took the time to study them. Red Riding Hood lived with a nurture giver whom she sometimes...
  10. Hooper

    I would like to see, more of a chance given to the young lad. People are saying he has "Bags" of potential, and could be twice as good as Eastwood. In some instances, i have felt that it is better to have brought him on for Bradbury. Especially when we are looking to create chances at home a la...
  11. An Excellent Warm Up Game – Spurs V SUFC - The Shrimper Truth.

    The Shrimper Truth. – match report and player ratings. It showed excellent spirit for SUFC to agree to play Spurs and the goodhearted Shrimper hordes again poured much needed cash into the (hopeless) attempt to regenerate this desolate patch of depressing north London. The local football club...
  12. Davros


    We are proud to inform you about an upcoming new feature. The season after next season (at the end of March) there will be a brand new and more challenging youth system in place. HT-Tjecken gives you the big picture in this editorial. One of few things remained untouched since Hattrick started...

    Xmas Turkey Recommendation

    Fellow SZers, as some of you may know I have never been a fan of Turkey, and in the past I have always had Goose which of course is the traditional English Crimbo Fayre, until the those damn Yanks introduced us to Turkey. Anyway last year for a change and to mounting family pressure I agreed to...

    Eastwood and Paynter

    Surely, the Eastwood and Payner partnership should be given much more time to develop. It is a match made in the heavens (literally). Freddy was born on 29 October, and is a Scorpio, and Billy on 13 July, and has the astrological sign of Cancer. I paraphrase the website of Australia's...

    The Problem

    hopefully this can develop into a discussion, rather than silly comments made by middle aged men.. We are trying to play Championship football.. We won 2 successive promotions for one of many reasons.. and that was, we played Southend United football.. flowing, crossing, passing, shooting...

    Tilly's signings for the Championship

    Shouldn't Tilly have signed at least a couple of players from reserve sides in the Premiership?  There must be lots of talent sitting in the reserves that would be willing to play first team football in the ccc. Or should he have looked in to getting a couple of fringe players from the...

    ...and so to Stoke

    That's all of the first XI friendlies completed and under a week to go now til the first day of the season. I'm so excited about this. Today, in the rain break on the cricket, I flicked over to SSN and they had the Soccer Saturday style layout set up with one of the Scottish football...

    Interview with Dave Smith

    Gary Nelson was never really aware that the fans never warmed to him, mind you he was just a young lad at the time. The ebst player I signed/coached was Alan Foggon up at Newcastle United. Well,he was never the same player down at Roots Hall and I never did understand why.!&#33...

    Brand Identity

    Why is it is important for a company to develop a strong brand identity? please help or anyone that has an essay or something similar please share your ideas.

    Am I missing something here?

    If we don't get a new stadium, for the football club, fine, we'll continue to play at Roots Hall. The fans don't care because they were happy enough at RH before. But what of Delancey's plans? Surely the only purpose for them to hold a stake in the football club is that they can...
