    Set Pieces

    Interesting piece from Tim Wigmore on how set piece training is undervalued. It also included a link to this brilliant piece on Sheffield Utd's set pieces With Turner our only real target from set pieces, I'd love us to try and work on some of these moves - both the short free-kicks - that...

    Official Match Thread Scunthorpe United v Southend United

    It is the day before Christmas Eve, and before Santa's big day we have our final away game of 2017 which is a long trip up north against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park. First a bit of good news Oxley passes a late fitness test and plays, Ferdinand returns to the starting lineup, but Ranger...
  5. Our “superstars” Bentley and Payne.

    This is all about the totally unrealistic expectations repeatedly expressed by some Zoners about Bentley and Payne just because they came through our youth system. Watching the end of Brentford v QPR 2-2 last night on Sky,I straight away saw Daniel fumble a cross and get away with it.In added on...

    Mr. Bentley

    ...getting sme stick for last night on a Brentford forum; "The defence has chopped & changed throughout, but the one constant has been Bentley & he’s worried me for weeks now. It seems that others are seeing this too, so is it time for Daniels to have a chance?"

    Training ground car park DJs

    Kevin Richardson wanted out at Watford and took to blasting ‘Please Release Me’ by Engelbert Humperdinck from his car stereo when he arrived at the training ground. What songs should Shrimpers past and present play as they arrived to training?
  9. Ref Watch ..... Peterborough (H)

    We hold a 20-19 lead in League matches against Peterborough and they haven't won at Roots Hall this millennium, their last victory coming in 1999, with a team that included Andy Edwards. The referee for tomorrow is in his fourth season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from...
  10. Bents Skipper ;

    Brentford goalkeeper Dan Bentley says he'd thrive off the role of being team captain, after getting a taste of it at Middlesbrough. The stopper was handed the armband for the closing stages of the clash at the Riverside Stadium, and Bentley says it was 'a privilege' to be given the...
  11. Stephen McLaughlin

    Am I reading too much into this? "Jermaine recognised that with Michael Kightly, Stephen Hendrie and Stephen McLaughlin still in the camp that there’s going to be competition for places out wide." https://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/2017/july/phil-brown-bishops-stortford-reaction/ rigsby...

    1972-73 Can you help?

    I'm in contact with a Russian supporter of Zenit Saint Petersburg (formerly Zenit Lennigrad). We played Zenit in 1972-73 in a friendly at Roots Hall ending 1-1. He has the programme for this but I wonder if in the following programmes there would have had any photos? Has anyone got the...

  19. Kevin Hogg

    Thank you Graham Taylor.

    The " Watford Years" were an incredible serious of matches in the later 1970's that created an excitement and intensity of rivalry not matched since. Yet prior to Mr Taylor taking over at Vicarage Road, I am fairly certain they were just another "local...ish" club we crossed swords with across...
