    Elvis or Dimi ?

    I've been so impresed with Elvis since he broke through with Phil Brown. He's a real SCP kind of player too, fantastic mobility, seems his attitude is good, has real pace and covers his centre backs intelligently. A ball winner that doesnt sell himself, whereas as much as i like Jason Dimi he...
  4. FA People's Cup Finals

    The finals of the FA People's Cup were held at St. Georges Park over last weekend. There were no less than 18 different categories and my lad Stephen Lovell from Great Wakering played in the Adult Male Disability category with his team Westcliff United. To get to the finals day they had already...

    England role for Chris Powell?

    Seems so, according to a report in The Times today. Alas it is behind a paywall so I can't dig any further... 976001786250186752
  8. Gas & Electricty supplier fake phone call

    Just a heads up, about 10am I recieved an answerphone message in respect to supplying my gas & electricity readings to an 0844 number or a website - and nowhere in the call did they say the name of my supplier. So, I called my supplier and then indicated that no readings are due (I in fact did...
  9. Lift up your top Ladies, and show us your Bra. Said the stewards.

    So Grimsby were playing at Stevenage in August. Some Stevenage stewards were asking the Grimsby Ladies and young Ladies to lift up or open their tops to show if pyrotechnics were hidden in their Bra's. This all sounds a bit perverted by the stewards as I'm sure they wouldn't have been instructed...

    Responses required re iFollow

    Back from the Trust's first liaison meeting with the new Head of Operations, Steve Waggott, along with Finance Director, Patrick Van der Waag, and one of the topics up for discussion today was iFollow. Now, to summarise best I can, it seems that you can't use this in more than one additional...
  11. Mugged in Southend

    Someone tried to mug me last night. After living in the town for over 30 years this is the first time this has happened to me. I was walking back from Herbies near Southchurch Park when I sensed two youths were following me on the other side of the park railings. They had hoodies on and I felt...

    Supporters Meeting 2nd August

    Fellow Zoners Aside from reading the daily fun and frivolity of the new kit thread this summer, I also found myself on the Supporters Group representing Shrimperzone. I will be attending a meeting tomorrow. Having had a wee chattette with Cockle43 (who is handily in Scotland) to get some...
  13. Southend United Supporter's Group

    As some of you may know Cockle43 and myself have been representing the Zone at the meetings of the supporter's group which are held every couple of months. I have now moved to Yorkshire to retire and, although it won't affect my owning and running the Zone, it will mean I am not able to return...

    I see that the Jury in the trial at Basildon Court has gone out yesterday to consider there verdict. The outcome will be known before we play Cambridge. Not going to comment further until that is known
  15. At Training Today.

    I went to training quite looking forward to seeing Michael Kightly really. Unfortunately I got called away and only stayed about half an hour. The players weren't training on the pitch right in front of the car park, but much further down. So couldn't see as well as usual. Again confirmed that...

    Question for the women in your lives

    Here's one to tickle your fancy.....having lunch yesterday with my baby group friends (the kids are now all 23!), I was greeted with a question....it wasn't "how was your holiday?", after not having seen them for three weeks, no, it was "how do you put your bra on?" Now, the upshot of this was...
  17. Starting 11 ( if we had no further additions or losses )

    I know that we will get players in ( "we will wont will Phil ????" ) and we might lose Lenny ("we wont will we Ron ???" ) and given that Ranger and Wordsworth wont be available due to holiday and injury , what starting 11 ( and subs ) would people select. This thread is due to another slow news...

    Season card sales

    The official word from the club is that we have sold around 3500 odd season cards. Is this a good number? I would have thought that somewhere between 4-5k would be a good number given price and the state of roots hall. What is a nice gesture and also a clever one one that the club tweeted...

  20. Tenancy Advice... Damage not caused by us!

    I was looking to see if any of my fellow Shrimpers were able to offer some advice in regards to our tenancy (more for peace of mind as I think we are completely in the right). Part of our Tenancy Agreement is that we must maintain all white goods that have been supplied. Recently our washer...
