    John White Injury

    959894031584067584 Hope it is not serious as well, hurry up back John.
  2. Timlin.

    It would seem I might be the only person on the Zone that hasn't turned on Michael Timlin. We even have people living abroad assuming all the negative stuff to be true. Talking to other fans and more importantly the management it appears not all agree with the overwhelming Zone opinion. Now I...
  3. Plumbing advice needed.

    Thought i'd ask on here, before phoning someone ( fingers x! ). Son currently lives alone in family house since my 'estranged' passed away. He spends time away re his job. When he does this & no water is being used in the house, after a couple of days the overflow pipe under the gutter...

    The Fate Of Our Local Rivals

    'Interesting' to see our local 'rivals' Orient and Col U floundering at the foot of the League 2 table with the trapdoor of relegation from the Football League a potential reality. Wondered how we felt about that? For me, I only "hate" them on the day then get on with my life. I certainly...
  6. Josh Cullen

    I've Just seen that he is another player from West Ham to be sent out on loan. In this case to Bradford, who we have to play on Tuesday, I hope he wont be another local, that turns out to bite us on the arse so to speak. I personally dont know much about him, did he ever trial with us? if so...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-0 Mansfield Town

    Great performance, took our foot off the gas in the second half possibly with an eye on Monday and really it could have been 3 or 4 but in the end 2-0 was probably a fair result though they were pretty dire. First half we played some fantastic stuff, imagining adding Worrall into that and we...

  11. Mad Cyril

    You dont sharpen a knife like that.....give it to me.

    Three hours later two fingers on my left hand are still bleeding although in my defence it was a fantastic roast and I had been on the red wine. Has anyone else made a spectacular tit of themselves recently? If so please provide full details.
  12. A Thought for Coventry

    I really do feel for the Coventry fans on an eve of another league campaign they find out they will start on -10 points. Always have fond memories of Coventry beating the Spuds to win the FA cup and of Highfield Road their ground for so many years. Its sad too see these famous old clubs falling...

    Cup - Season 26

    Home game against a team ranked similar to mine, I have the better team on paper though so fingers crossed.
  14. Hatred of Birmingham City Football Club

    I'm loving seeing Birmingham in the mess they currently find themselves in. It looks like it may get worse and it wouldn't surprise me to see them be where Portsmouth are soon. Or even (fingers crossed) Luton. A Birmingham fan just made the point to me that my hatred of them should have...

  16. Ref Watch ....... Daggers at home

    After a glut debutant referees, man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his second season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, but has...

    Question Our injury position

    Besides having a number of players missing through injury now, we seem to have had quite a high level of injuries during the pre-season and games so far as well - Spicer, Eastwood, Hurst, Martin, Timlin and Corr - come to mind. At this time of year you might blame the hard ground as a factor -...
  18. Have we blown promotion already?

    Now, don't get me wrong, Luggy was brilliant last season after what he had to contend with when he came to the club. Also, the squad he had built up this term is extremely strong for this level and the away record this year has been very good also. However, I'm wondering as to whether he can...

    Taxing Festive Cheer - a new lowI do hope you all enjoyed the festivities over Christmas. Perhaps, like I, you drank a fine wine with friends, or smoked a cigar with your Cognac to celebrate one of the few remaining holidays the taxman allows us revenue producing drones. No sooner have we put...
