diabolical

  1. 'Protests'

    I must admit to being slightly embarrassed watching the feature on us on Late Kick Off and seeing the 'baying mob'. Anyone else? I've got much respect for True Blue in going with what he believes in and rallying such an event, but: "WHAT DO WE WANT? MARTIN OUT! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOW!"...

    Stick With Rafa

    (For a different paper this time, hence the shorter word count) Is the FA Cup important again? It's the only explanation for the sudden turnaround at Anfield. Like a battered wife, the Liverpool fans have taken one beating too many and they're rising up, teeth bared, against Rafa Benitez...

    Crystal Palace's Disallowed goal!

    Got to feel sorry for Warnock for a change actually! This refereeing is absolutely diabolical. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00m6xtt/The_Football_League_Show_2009_2010_15_08_2009/ the report starts after about 18.10

    SZ Novella - Chapter Six

    Chapter Six - South Of The ShrimperZone? At This Time Of Night? Ricey edged away from Stokes, carefully keeping his eyes shielded from the Red Tube. As tempting as it was to allow himself to wallow in the intense glow of some very, very naughty thoughts, he knew from...well...erm, first hand...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Five

    Chapter Five - Red Sky At Night, Stokes' Delight Ricey sprinted down the back-alley, feet slipping and sliding on the wet concrete as he went. The sound of a gunshot echoed off the walls and he instinctively ducked, almost falling to the ground. Reaching the end of the passageway, he turned...
  6. Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-0 AFC Telford

    It was a diabolical performance in the first half and not much better in the second..Mildenhall kept us in it with two great saves..and if there was anything to smile about apart from the fact we won, it was a great goal by Walker.
  7. Why is Jonny Stokes so quiet.

    After the Euphoria of his ramblings on here after Game 1 of the season and the diabolical theft of them drawing at their ground, all seems to have gone quiet....So I ask Members of the Zone ... Where's Johnny. I would hazzard a guess, under James's desk licking the feet of the fan whose team...
  8. On way home...

    ...well, only just out of Elland Road car park actually.  Oh, the joy of having a wireless network card! Where do I start?  We were unbelievable.  I don't know how the f@ck we lost that and it was quite possibly the most unjust defeat I've seen in nearly 11 years of watching Southend.   Dennis...
  9. Penalties

    If our last missed penalty was Leon Constantine's away at Orient on that horrid day when Drewe and Tes scored own-goals (doesn't that seem like a life-time ago?!?), that means we've scored our last 24 penalties in all competitions. That has to be some kind of record, especially...
  10. Goater

    On current form, is not worth his place in the squad. I Don't care if he's scored 3 goals in 4 Matches, today he was diabolical. He was brought in to bring something else to the attack and offered absolutely nothing. Won Sweet FA in the air and was static, trying to feed off the balls...
  11. Referee tonight....

    ....awful, absolutely dreadful - worst this season for me. He let FAR too much go and it caused him to completely lose control of the game later on. Williamson's challenge on Maher was terrible and (had the referee seen it) would have surely been punished with a bare minimum yellow card...
  12. Controversial one this....

    ...but for me its come as no surprise that these 3 straight defeats have come immediately after the Barnet FA Cup tie. I said to Draft Shrimper and statski that I'd be quite happy this season to go out at the first hurdle as having been a Shrimper for 18+ years I've seen many a promising...
  13. Winkle

    23 monthes ago.....

    Southend 0...Boston...2, probabley one of the worst games of football I have ever witnessed, graeme jones scored for them and we were diabolical! I remember driving home with my son trying to pick him up after our defeat but there was deathly silence at the tescos roundabout on the A127...

    How Much Service Does Fredy Really Get ?

    If you can provide the service, then Fredy is your man. The service has been diabolical. Mark Gower is a good player but needs a lot of coaching. He's in part a Giggsy (at this level) but needs to understand that there are others who would benefit by his craft - he should not be so selfish...

    Alexander's post match comments

    Lincoln boss bemoans late penalty Lincoln boss Keith Alexander believes a late penalty and a disallowed goal cost them against Southend. "We set our stall out and I felt we did well from start to finish," he said after the 1-1 draw. "Two terrible decisions cost us the game...
  16. Southend drinking

    Has anyone else seen the diabolical (but fairly accurate) article in the back of this months FHM about a Saturday night out on Southend. It appears the journalist is absolutely cacking it. His whole article is based on the fear that he's going to take a kicking. I didn't appreciate the danger...
