    Is it time for Brown to go ? - Part 2

    We had the monster thread after the season with a poll, lets see what the current opinion is (hard to guess this one) For me he he has had 7 games plus the league cup game and we now look worse than last season. Didn't deliver in the transfer window. Results have not been good enough, the...

    The guy is mental. Brave isn't the word and how fitting the 3rd should be tucked away by him. Man of the season. What a servant.

    A couple of changes

    With the new session starting on Saturday just a couple of changes from now on: As usual 2 points for naming Southends first goal scorer, but some seem to think we won't always score, therefore for "no scorer" you will score 1 point in the rare occurrence that the Shrimpers fail to score...

    How fitting would it be...

    ...for us to beat Aldershot on their own ground to practically condemn them to relegation after the floodlight failure last season which many believe cost us promotion? They are bottom, with Torquay and Barnet above them. They have to play each other. If we win, Aldershot will be 4 points...
  7. FM - New Idea

    I tried FM13 for a bit, but never got into it or enjoyed it, so started back on FM07 for a bit. I've done that for several seasons and got Southend to win the Prem, now thought of a new challenge. With all the talk on the "If Southend cease to exist" thread about starting a new team, it gave me...

  9. The Secret Footballer

    Just listening for 5 Live, with an interview by the above and he's contradicted himself so many times - at one point he mentions playing abroad and the trouble of fitting in with the culture, and the next he says he's never played abroad. I haven't read the column nor the book, but on the basis...

    Trust & ShrimperZone Meeting with Ron Martin

    Ken Jarvis representing ShrimperZone and I (Paul FitzGerald) met with Ron Martin on Tuesday night to try to clarify the state of the clubs finances and the status of the FF development. Not hugely surprising but our meeting with Ron turned into a double act. Steve Kavanagh came across well...

    Well Done those involved with Harrys funeral and collection.

    Can I just say what a fantastic floral display and turn out for Harry today. I think all the people involved (Wont name them incase I miss someone out) deserve a massive pat on the back. It was a fitting tribute to a great man. DtS

    canveyshrimper collection for flowers

    Jackie/Tinks has asked us if she could start a collection for flowers for Harry's funeral on here. Jackie knew Harry very well so it is fitting she takes charge of this. He has as far as we know no close relatives apart from maybe a cousin or two scattered about. We feel as The Zone and his...

    Thundersley War Memorial Proposal

    Guys, following on so soon after Rememberance Day, can I share the idea of a proposed War Memorial for Thundersley with you and ask for your support in emailing the Council who, apparently, don't see the 215 members of the Facebook Group behind this as enough reason to pursue the idea? Linky...

    The 1953 Floods

    I hope the following is of some interest, on a Saturday afternoon in 1953 Southend United played a poor game of football, the crowd had a good old moan and then went home totally unaware of the disaster that would hit locally in a few hours time. Saturday 31st January 1953 Southend United 1-0...
  19. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...
  20. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...
