    The Captain Critical

    Some of you may well have seen this, but I thought it worthy of discussion and apologies in advance for length !! Apparently one of the favourite current reads amongst leading International coaches ( across all sports ) is " The Captains Class". It was even acknowledged by Southgate in...

    Do you score?

    You are a Brizzle Rovers striker. It is the final minute of a long season, there is little to play for but pride and the score is 1-2 against Millwall. Suddenly you find yourself one on one with the keeper - you glance up to pick your spot and see a large number of Millwall "chaps" behind the...

    IF we make the play-offs...

    Let's say that we beat Bury and Millwall lose to Bristol Rovers... Does anyone actually fancy us in the play-offs? We all know the importance of form going into these, it was pretty crucial when we came up only two years ago, but we are currently experiencing our worst run of form of the...

    The importance of Predicting Early - the Third Session

    The current session of The Prediction League ends shortly on the 12th December 2015 (Bradford away). The new session starts on Friday/Saturday 18th/19th December 2015 (Bury at Home). I try put up four sets of fixtures at any one time so that for those that want to they can predict all at one...
  5. Number of players used.

    Saw an interesting tweet from Chris Phillips earlier, throughout the entire season, only Wycombe used less players than us. Tranmere used almost double ours and got relegated. Shows the importance of stability!
  6. BOT 90's albums: Play Off Final

    Ok, we have another final of slightly less importance than tomorrow's shenanigans. OK Computer vs Portishead to take the coveted title of ShrimperZone's Battle of the 1990s albums. Off you go, evidence please.....

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Wycombe Wanderers v Southend United

    In the absence of anyone else kicking this off - Here we go. 1-4 and not a good day at the office. I'll be interested to here the views of those that were there. Probably of more importance than those of us who weren't.
  8. Prices Reduced? 3 important games coming up

    Would have been brilliant if the club could have put a promo in for the Torquay game at least for reduced ticket prices? Similar to what we done last season against Morecambe? The importance of these three games is evident, would have been nice to really pack out the hall:sad:

    Roots Hall Pitch

    Am I the only one thinking that the lack money spent on the pitch is starting to bite us on the arse? The pitch cuts up worse than I've seen it for a long time & this is before the recent heavy rain. Considering we play the ball on the floor a lot more these days, it has more importance.

  11. Importance of tonight and Monday.

    Important we pick up at least 4 points in the Rotherham And Gillingham Games. With our match going ahead, postponements tomorrow and us back in action on Monday we'll have played 3 games more than the rest. Vital we don't slip up and arrest the mini slide.

    Planning Application extention+ Changes to plans /council meeting report 26 Jan 2012 I couldn't see this mentioned anywhere else, I can't remember now exactly where we are and whether this was expected /old news or what , so apologies if old/non news Andrew Meddle Head of Planning and...
  13. Ryan Hall-his importance

    I would suggest that our success or otherwise this season will, to a significant degree, depend upon whether we can keep hold of Ryan. His goal and assist yesterday we classic examples of how much he means to us. Let's hope Chris Powell will not come knocking.
  14. players and tour

    A wee birdie tells me the manager feels the tour is important because of the slow start last season due to the players and as a team taking time to gel . With new players comin again to the club he would like to think the trust members would understand his thoughts and vote for the tour he...

    Sainsburys vs Tescos in Southend

    Just read in the Standard that a new Tescos is being planned for the old B&Q Site. You can see the importance of the Roots Hall site even more now. Tescos will have two big shiny new stores within a few miles of each other so its vital for Sainsburys to open a new store to keep any sort of...

    How can you chose

    I have been around a fair few years and never have I seen this country in such a sad state..I doubt any of you have even a 2% sway to which party you will vote for. OK.. The differences within is minute , so let us start with current government.... An unelected prime minister from Scotland...
  18. Fear not...

    ... it is really of no importance as to whether Barnard stays or goes. There has to be more than one pony in the coal miners parade. If he stays, thats great, but he will not outscore the majority of attacks we play against because we are defensively suspect to say the least. Unless the team is...
