    Changes to Blues Player

    Got this e-mail this morning, don't know whether the change in name will mean a change in service? Within the next six weeks your club will be launching a new website. This website will feature a range of new features, including a new name for our PlayerHD service which will become iFollow...

    Pre-Match Thread Chesterfield Fc v Southend United

    Getting this up a bit early as I've bunged a poll into the thread as well. Vote for your preference of starting eleven. I'm assuming that Ranger, White and Woody will be fit by the way, hence their inclusion. I doubt we will have 2.5k away fans for this game, but ye Gods, it is a seriously...

    Simpson status

    Just seen this about Simpson and orient... Leyton Orient boss Andy Hessenthaler called for the summer transfer window to shut before the start of the season following O’s 3-0 win over Stevenage. Gavin Massey’s brace sandwiched a stunning header from Dean Cox as the east Londoners earned their...

    Question Eurovision

    What a load of rubbish that was last night. An instantly forgettable winner, however political a subject it may have been. The inclusion of Australia was farcical. An excellent production by the Swedish, as reasonable a song from us as we've had for many a year and a real change to the voting...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Walsall

    As mentioned elsewhere, last night will have given PB a selection headache with so many players who missed out at the weekend impressing. Walsall will be on a high after their injury time winner in a 4-3 victory away at Forest, and had a decent result last weekend with a 1-1 draw against Oldham...
  7. Southend fans views needed

    Hi everyone, I'm a final year student in the research stage of my dissertation project. The project is based around the under-representation of ethnic minorities in football (particularly in the stands), my research will mostly be carried out by using the views of football fans of all ethnicity...

    Brown: Deegan keeps us on our toes!

    PHIL Brown insists the inclusion of Gary Deegan has stopped his Southend United side from being too nice. More...

    The Ashes 2013

    Sooooo, anyone care to speculate on the biggest sporting event of the year? England massive favorites on Betfair. I wonder if it will play that way.....Maybe I (along with others) am being paranoid what with it being Australia. You never know what they'll produce. Michael Clarkes form has...

    The greatest asset

    Seeing how the ultimate sexual combo thread is taking shape I wanted to establish what the ultimate bloke attraction is. I was mortified when I did a sweep with mates the other day and arse beat tits 7-1. So, I put it to you Shrimperzone with the added inclusion of legs... What is the greatest...

    Ryan Hall - In the top ten players for League Two.

    The football league have compiled the top ten players as voted by the managers, for divisions 2-4. Our only inclusion was Ryan Hall, in at 7th. No surprises for the winners of each league...

    Mirror mirror on the wall whose the daftest of them all?

    Listening to BBC Essex on the way back Luggy said all needed to think hard about their efforts tonight and that he himself would be taking a look in the mirror. Well, sorry Mr S, but despite my deep respect for what you have so far done for SUFC, if you take an honest look I think you will find...

    Academies......maybe not the answer to everything for all schools!

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/9107857.17_staff_at_academy_to_face_axe_due_to_cuts/ I know there was a discussion on here recently about academies but it's too hot to trawl through loads of threads and posts to try and find it. I also know that the immediate reaction of a lot of you will be...

    Would the inclusion of Billel Easty and Blair and Barry made a diffo.
  15. Ron speaks

    Make of this what you will. Can't wait to hear his take on squad size! Good luck tonight.Will be listening in - no doubt of the MK commentary as te Southend broadcast is so hit and miss. A few - not many in truth - have commented that I have "gone quiet" over the past two or three weeks...

    The troublesome third and fourth places...

    So, folks, poll time: it's time for the collective wisdom of ShrimperZone to come to the rescue of the England selectors. Who do we pick to fill the troublesome third and fourth spots in the England batting line up? The above six names have been bandied around... so, who do we pick? Or do you...
  17. Southend for the Totalitarian League!

    Don't know how many on hear listen to Danny Baker's show on 5 Live on a Tuesday night. One of the long-running themes of his phone in show is the concept of a Totalitarian League. Danny thinks there are too many football teams and wants to trim the entire British and Scottish leagues down to...

    Blues stadium bid wins approval

    Piece in the Echo today, a bit different to the one on 22nd April concerning the casino and Morrisons, which seems to me to be the final piece of the jigsaw required: Football chief Ron Martin has been praised by councillors for defying the recession and pressing ahead with plans for Southend...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Clark

    The Viking That alone might be enough words for many on here to vote yes to Paul Clark, but if you weren't fortunate enough to have witnessed his crunching tackles and never say die attitude, I suppose I should give a lengthier bio. The first local player up for election, Clark was born in...

    Breaking News Charlie MacDonald in 442 'Top 50 League Players'

    At Number 48 to be precise. I wouldn't agree with it, but I could understand Hooper being in the Top 50 after what he's done this year (he isn't in, but is named as Scunthorpe's best player), but MacDonald's inclusion is absurd. No Shrimpers in the 50, Peter Clarke gets the nod as our best...
