  1. Question Another club shop question

    Folks, do they stock kids shirts? The online shop is dreadful and I reckon it's time MK Jnr got her first one ... :smile:

  3. Roller coaster

    Stunned utterly stunned. Pig's goal was in slow motion and we were right behind the line of the ball ,everything and everyone went ****ing mental,it was surreal as I have never witnessed scenes or emotion ever before from watching us,when Cokes missed it was dreadful then Danny oh beautiful...
  4. Ref Watch ....... Cambridge A Boxing Day

    Firstly season's greetings to all. Festive cards will be shown this year by Oliver Langford (at Cambridge), Gavin Ward (Dagenham) and Tim Robinson (at Northampton). First up on Boxing Day is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands, as we look for our third consecutive...

    Question Dreadful sporting events

    A couple of colleagues are very excited today as they are going to the Oxford University v Cambridge University rugby union match at Twickenham this afternoon. While wishing them a fun afternoon, I struggled to think of a sporting event I'd *less* rather go to. What about fellow SZers? The...
  6. Pre-Match Thread Morecambe visit The Hall

    A week to go and we get the Shrimps to our house of the Shrimpers. Bits have been written already about out dreadful record against them & also what a pain in the arse Ellison can be. Sampson also scored his only "worldy" against us"..........never again to be repeated! Can we make it 5 from 5...
  7. Ref Watch The Return of Refwatch Accrington (A)

    A new season dawns with our fifth consecutive year in this dreadful division which requires us to go to places like Accrington, as we embark on three away matches in 22 days with a combined distance of over 1,700 miles. There is an element of Groundhog Day about this match as for the third year...
  8. Ref Watch PLAY-OFF Burton A 1st Leg

    The referee for Sunday's match is Oliver Langford from Darlaston, near Walsall in the West Midlands. I understand play-off appointments are made from the top of the "merit list" for officials, so he's obviously had a good season. He is however a referee I would always prefer to see doing home...

    A positive spin on things.....

    Reasons to be cheerful + feel POSITIVE for tonights big match: We are unbeaten in 3 matches Bentley is looking unbeatable and has kept clean sheets in last 2 games We have a new Big , speedy , prolific striker from a Premiership club making his home debut We also have 2 young impressive...
  10. Ref Watch ...... Morecambe A

    Hardly a clash between League Two's form teams as we go into a match between two sides who have not got a single win in their last combined 19 matches. Does that point to a draw? If so that will be better than we've ever achieved there in the League with three defeats from three matches and even...
  11. Away at Northampton from a Cobblers perspective!

    Morning all! Not on here to cause any drama, hopefully just give a little insight into our team to make sure your a little more clued up for tomorrows game:thumbsup: First and foremost well done on your season so far, you (Phil Brown more so) has surprised me by making you a solid playoff...
  12. Best radio co-presenter / Phil Brown

    Laying in the bath listening to our own Phil Brown on radio 5 live i must say that even if he was'nt our manager he would still be my favourite co- sports presenter; straight to the point, no woffle, knowledgeable, funny, mentions Southend and on there because he is bloody good not because of...
  13. Ref Watch ..... Morecambe away The Magic of the Cup

    The man in charge of Saturday's far from magical cup tie is Rob Lewis, from Shrewsbury. This is the fourth season of his second spell as a League referee, having lost his place in 2008 primarily due to injury. Another one of our shorter officials, he was in charge of our opening game of the...

    Come off it Brown that was drross

    Just back from watching Southend wasting the ball for the whole match. Can Mr Brown explain on here what his instructions were to Barry Corr. Corr was stuck in the middle of the pitch, too slow or uninterested to get forward leaving Cauley Woodrow to run his socks off to pose the only threat to...
  15. Ref Watch ......... Plymouth (H)

    It really is difficult to think of a less imaginative and inspiring appointment to start the new season with ! The referee for Saturday is the very same one who did the final game of last season bringing the curtain down on what was probably the worst half a season of home football ever at...
  16. Ron's Masterplan?

    I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Dave Penney has signed as Assistant Manager and that we have kept Graham Coughlan in a newly created post, First Team Coach. At a time when we were again late in paying our tax bill and some players, this appointment was , for me, quite a shock. In Brown...
  17. Ref Watch ........Morecambe H

    The 61st and final Refwatch of the season (yes, that's more than the games played by Clohessey) and, as the curtain comes down on what must be considered a disappointing season (especially if you only only get to home games!), we will be attempting our first ever win over Morecambe. The previous...
  18. Who Wants Our Club Dead?

    There is a concerted campaign going on to drive Ron Martin out of business and deny him the chance to build Martin's Mall at Fosset's Farm. So what? Martin has a reputation for making enemies and saying what people want to hear while doing things they'd rather he didn't. Not many people would...

    The Great Divide

    Blimey, what a week! We've got people who used to hate Ron now not hating him as much and maybe even liking him as well as people who gave him the benefit of the doubt before who think he is now the spawn of the Devil. We've got what maybe was a well intended gesture and an injection of a...

    Home + away ... Different managers ?

    First off , I like Paul Sturrock , admire greatly what he has achieved & his managerial skills away from home are absolutley second to none. His style of filling midfield, keeping it tight + hitting teams on the break works perfectly away. However its becoming painfully clear when we are at...
