    Request a bet

    Any idea how to go about putting a bet on our young Dru making a full first team England international appearance before he turns 26? Sky bets request a bet wouldn't offer it. I know alot of people think he is over rated, I like him, and I like a punt!

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United V MK Dons

    For MK this is almost a last chance make or break game SO the game ought to have some bite and maybe a few more Dons fans visiting than usual from them. After the poor pooh showing at Ox then CP will be wanting to show home fans that it is "work in progress" for him in prep for next season and...
  3. Dru Yearwood Sale (Poor attempt at humour)

    Heard that a deal has been agreed this weekend to sell Dru at the end of the season to an undisclosed non uk team.

    Happy 18th Birthday Dru

    What a great way to celebrate your 18th Birthday and I have baked you a very special cake. :clap::happy:
  5. Completely untrue gossip made up silly fans wishing they were in the know....

    It christmas party season - traditionally a time when smouldering office love ends up with a messy snogarama outside the venue - generally in the smoking area.... BUT also a time when other tensions can erupt - between men who maybe consider themselves top dog or between guys who decide that it...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Reading U12s

    This Tuesday we have an interesting (possibly) game V Reading in the Check-a-Trade. What will Phil pick and want to do? I believe Ronnie will want to see a little cup run & Kevin Maher will want some more of his boys to get a run out. Oxley Demi, JW, Harry Kip, Hendrie Wright, Dru, Len...

    Squad Numbers

    I know you can't really read too much into these, but there are two obvious observations: 1. Jack Bridge has been given a number. 2. Nile Ranger hasn't (unless it's an oversight). Full list: 1. Mark Oxley 2. Stephen Hendrie 3. Ben Coker 4. Anthony Wordsworth 5. Anton Ferdinand 6...

    Cambridge friendly mystery

    How come there's no video highlights footage of our friendly game at Cambridge on the OS some 72 hours after the game? Did the game really take place? Was the camera operator drunk? No film in the camera? What's your conspiracy theory? Personally,I blame it on the Meet the Blues Day.:winking:
  9. Breaking News Dru Yearwood signs four year deal

    17 year old Dru Yearwood has been offered a four year professional contract. Talking it over with his parents apparently.

    Shrimpers Trust End of Season Awards

    As some of you may be aware, last night we held our annual awards night, where almost the entire 1st team squad were in attendance along with the management team, and the youth team and Dave Huzzey. It's always interesting to see how the voting compares here with the club's awards, so here's...

    The Bizarre Summer Of 1983...

    I have never seen a thread on SZ that relates to the sacking of Dave Smith and his rather incredible reaction. Either I spent the Summer of '83 in a drunken haze? Or our manager was fired - but amazingly ignored the sacking and turned up to work for a period of time. Anyone remember a balding...

    David Goodwillie & David Robertson - another case of rape?

    Here we go again, some similarities with the Ched Evans/Clayton Mcdonald case...except here the woman is seeking her own private prosection. When are clubs and bars going to accept a certain amount of responsibility and do what pubs do when someone has had too much and refuse to serve them...
  14. Driverless cars - a moral conundrum

    Here's an interesting one: It's the year 2026 and Person A is in a Driverless Skoda. Lovely and safe. However, there's an accident up ahead, the car is doing 30mph and the computer has two options... a) Save the driver and run into and probably kill 10 pedestrians. b) Swerve into a wall and...

    Things You've Broken at Home and Got Away With

    Years ago, when I was still at school I had an 18th birthday party in my parents' house. My parents were very sensible and booked into a hotel for the night. That was partly to do with noise, and partly to do with the fact that about 20-30 people stayed over because they had travelled long...

    The best day of my Southend United supporting life.

    I started supporting Southend as a kid, and have been on and off over 30 years (with plenty of years constantly going and a massive chunk where I didnt go at all). In that time I've seen promotions with Dave Webb's team, Tilsons promotions, beating Man Utd etc but today was without doubt the...

    The European Debate Thread

    Can I point out from the very start that this is a thread for debate and not for a certain individual to post pointless links and ignore other posts that don't fit in with his own views. I thank you. It would appear that Cameron will be banging his head against a brick wall when he attends the...
