    Junior Blues match - Saturday 21st October

    Our next Saturday home game is scheduled as the dedicated Junior Blues match for this year. We hope to have face painting and stuff going on in and around the ground beforehand, and (weather permitting) a half time pitch walk. There may be other surprises too! Junior Blues tickets are just £1...

    For all you prediction junkies a new competition starts next Wednesday, the Play-Off Prediction League, This year it will include the Conference as well as Championship, League One and League Two. It hasn't got the spice of having Southend in it but that's life. Similar set up as usual...

    For a week or so I've been unable to open any websites on my laptop. I use Firefox, and that hasn't been working. the wheel goes round forever and evertually it says "Secure Connection Failed". I've tried other browsers, they don't work either. I did the cmd netsh winsock reset catalog thing i...
  7. Zavon Hines

    I've just listened to Phil Brown's post-match interview and when asked about Stephen McLaughlin's injury he started listing off people that could come in to the squad to replace him. Zavon Hines wasn't mentioned and to my knowledge hasn't yet made the bench for us. Is he just not match fit yet...

    Maidstone v Macclesfield

    Maidstone v Macclesfield Went to this game on Saturday with one of my staff. Nice stadium, good clubhouse, decent support. Three ex-shrimpers in the squads: Macclesfield: Jack Sampson - well he's found his level. Won every header, got stuck in, but rubbish on the ground, can't control the ball...

    Junior Blues Meet the Players Day 2016

    Just a heads up to anyone that usually turns up on an ad hoc basis at Boots & Laces, the Junior Blue's annual Meet the Players Day takes place next Tuesday, 25th October and, as such, there will be no casual admittance as this is a closed event. I hope people will understand that this is for...

    Contracted Players in Squad

    As it stands we have just 8 players signed to the club for next season with options on a further two. PB had better get talking soon to those he wants to keep around the place. We have two keepers no centre backs two full backs two wingers one young attacking centre mid a striker who hasn't set...

    Injured/jailed players. Will they make a difference?

    With Brown seemingly unable to sign a birthday card at the moment, it would appear that most of our hopes are being placed on injured/jailed players to dig us out of the whole we find ourselves in. Will these players make a difference and will any of them get fit? Timlin...Not been fit for...
  12. Does anyone actually hate Phil ?????

    I certainly don't ! He comes across as very likeable and a decent guy,cannot understand why some on here use the phrase "Phil/Brown haters".....lazy reposte IMO to even utter that phrase. Dont like his football style that is certain,hate never! Does he deserve the sack,he has been lucky Ron...

    Problems Posting

    I seem to have a problem posting. Every time I post something I then get a pop up box asking if I want to leave the page or cancel. This only started happening yesterday, but affects both my home PC and my work one. Normally I would assume it's a browser issue, but because it's happening in two...

    Hay Fever

    My boy hasn't been himself for about 2 weeks and I think it might be hay fever. He certainly has some of the symptoms, runny nose, red under the eyes and a dry cough. Any suggestions as to what I can safely give a 6 year old to give him a bit of relieve.

    SZ Player of the Season 2015-16

    As mentioned elsewhere, it seems there will be no player of the season presentation at our final home game on Saturday, and it will instead be at the end of season gala dinner. So who gets your vote? For me, it's got to be Jack Payne. The most entertaining player by a mile this season, and has...

    Breaking News Brown Quits (Not Really)

    Ok, no he hasn't. But I thought I'd stop any idiot starting a thread such as this tomorrow.

    Mr Kettle caused a little steam to be let off yesterday....

    Really surprised this hasn't popped up on here as yet - at least, not as far as I've seen. AFC Wimbledon v Accrington Stanley, our friend, Trevor Kettle the ref. So, resident refs and members of SZ, what do we make of this? Was he right or was he wrong? Certainly I think the majority of refs...

    Are we punching well above our weight!?

    Not very often I do a sensible post but from time to time I can string a sentence or two together. Now it's been a pretty disappointing start to 2016, after an incredible 2015 whereby we only lost 10 league games in a calendar year! Whatever level you are playing at, that's good going! The...
