  1. Ref Watch Plymouth

    I see Dean Whitestone is down to ref this game let's hope he is a homer and sends off half of the Pilgrims so the mighty Shrimpers can get 3 points. Over to you Mick

    Fort Lauderdale airport shooting: Five people shot dead by Florida gunman

    I was going to put this into Homer's Bar but decided it probably belonged here. Leaving aside the immediate devastating impact of this event, I was absolutely astonished that passengers are allowed to carry guns in their luggage on American airlines. Listening to 'experts' yesterday it seems...

    Favourite 'secondary' characters in TV shows

    Favourite main characters in TV shows get all the praise - Homer Simpson, Basil Fawlty, Edmund Blackadder, Omar Little, Tony Soprano, Ken Barlow, the list goes on. But what about your favourite 'secondary' characters, those who may only appear in occasional episodes, or who don't always get...
  4. General World Cup thread

    I thought it was a good opener last night. Croatia looked a very strong team (Perisic is some player) and Brazil were lucky with a homer ref and some good finishing from Neymar and Oscar. They might struggle against teams who are strong in attack. Cesar and Luiz didn't play well and their full...
  5. Details of Homer Jolley's Funeral

    I have just spoken to Denise and she has arranged Graham's funeral for 2.40pm on Friday 20th April at Southend Crematorium and afterwards at the Royal Naval Club, Prittlewell. If anyone wants to wear Southend United shirts that is fine, especially as we are at home to Barnet in the evening. If...
  6. Re-naming of the Pub Forum

    After a good suggestion by DaveTheShrimper we have changed the name of the Pub Forum in honour of a true mate and someone who appreciated real ales to "Homer's Pub". I am sure Graham is raising a glass as I type this.

    An idea re sad passing of "Homer"

    Morning mods. Just an idea. I don't know if we have had a members death before on the zone but obviously it's a very sad occasion for all and I am sure even people that didn't know Homer would feel a loss. I was wondering what you thought and the possibility of renaming the title of "the pub"...

    The Sad Loss of Graham Jolley

    It is never a good time to bring you sad news and it is with a heavy heart that I have to inform you that Graham Jolley or Homer as he is known on the Zone passed away tonight in hospital just before the start of tonight's game. I know a lot of you will know him in person or would have met him...

    Because of the latest news regarding HMRC and a few other snippets going around in the press and rumour-ville lately, Tara Brady has asked us to arrange a Fans' Forum for him to answer any questions regarding these matters and any others on the football side of SUFC in person. Therefore next...

    Who's up for a massive Shrimperzone Call Of Duty match sometime soon?? I know it has been suggested in the past, but I don't think one really did get set up though. We did try to get one set up yesterday, but no luck unfortunately. Time is suggested below, if anyone has a problem with the...

    2010 season

    Ah, spring training. The sound of rubber or cork wrapped in yarn and covered with leather thumping into leather mitts or the rifle crack of corked ash. Ahhh. There is something magical about the phrase "pitchers and catchers report". It sounds so innocent but at the same time so alluring. I'm...
  14. Ref Watch .... Charlton

    After what I thought was an excellent performance by late replacement, Mick Russell on Tuesday, the referee for tomorrow night's match is Kevin Wright from Yaxley near Peterborough. His last action in a Southend match was to give Brentford their last minute match winning penalty in the away...

    Brazil Are Crap

    Ecuador 1-1 Brazil Noboa, 89 Baptista, 73 One of the eternal joys of watching South American football is the sight of those famous yellow shirts buzzing around the pitch, flicking the ball to one another as if 30 yard first time passes were the easiest thing in the world. They play as...
