    Blues Player Interview: Phil Brown

    Interesting six minute interview on Blues Player from Phil Brown. He points out how the biggest disappointment at his time in Southend is "not having a new stadium yet" as "this was one of the main reasons why [he] joined the football club." Seems like quite strong words and hope it's not an...

    Craig Mackail-Smith - Brown wants him on Trial according to Echo

    Apparently according to todays Echo Brown is attempting to bring him in with a view to a trial against Braintee/West Ham. No indication of whether it will happen. Unfortunately he hasn't scored 50 goals over the last 3 seasons.....
  4. Breaking News Roots Hall Market given another two years!

    Interesting read, at least from the point that Roots Hall market stall holders have been told they have at least another two years at Roots Hall... A good indication the stadium is as far off as ever..... http://www.thurrockgazette.co.uk/news/10723118.print/

    Eric Steele

    Has left Man Utd along with Mick Phelan. He certainly didn't give any indication that he would turn into a Top flight coach, mind you , whats the phrase , ? Those who can , do. Those who can't , teach.
  6. Aston Villa to bring back terracing?

    Aston Villa set to bring back terrace standing area at Villa Park Aston Villa are exploring the possibility of introducing a safe-standing area at Villa Park. Club officials have held preliminary talks about becoming Premier League pioneers by creating a new style of terracing at the ground...
  7. An indication of our financial problems!

    Having spent many months awaiting my season ticket rebate - evidently the 'flag on my record was set incorrectly in the system', I received a cheque through the post for £55. I paid it into my bank last week and yesterday had it returned - yes, it's a cheque of the rubber variety! So having...

    The Qatar World Cup

    I was interested to see this in the news again with Sepp Blattering on about it. Apparently his comments were the strongest indication yet that it'll be held in the Summer. This came as a surprise to me, as I thought his comments were the strongest indication yet that it would be switched to...

    Rangers hold the key to future Scottish European exploits

    Kaunas is a word that reminds Rangers of a bad time, a one time lacklustre performance in Europe against FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the Second Qualifying round in the 2009/10 UEFA Cup season. Celtic also now have a word that instils disappointment and memories of what could've been. FC Utrecht...
  10. Taking a lot for granted

    Having listened to all 3 RM interviews, and everything that has being going on in the last few months, there is a lot being taken for granted by the Board of SUFC. The one thing fans need is honesty - not slipperyness. Not once during the interviews was there any indication given that we are...

    Question When do both players report back for Pre Season?

    Just wondering, when Herd and O'Keefe report back for pre season training? Must be in a week or so I would suspect with the early 7th August league start? Maybe that may give us more of an indication of how bad things are?

    OD - Week 5

    ShrimperZone CC v Gatley Ouch. Existing FC champions Gatley roll up at Garon Park including 500k batsman Jenny. Muse managed to grind out a draw with them in FC last week with these ratings: Southend Gatley Top Order: masterful elite Middle Order: miraculous elite Lower Order: competent...
  13. The French Re-Vieira

    Roberto Mancini must be feeling in a charitable mood… offering to re-home an aged war-dog like Patrick Vieira certainly caught a few people off guard. The France captain spent the summer being linked with a return to Arsenal, and then August being touted as a shock move for Redknapp’s Spurs in...

    Will this turn out to be...

    ...another storm in a Shrimperzone tea cup? Here we are again... 2 days before the end of the club, we're going into administration, the clubs been mismanaged, what a load of bloody tripe that comes from the mouths of some (and not who you might think I mean)... Jesus we all love to react don't...

    Memory Lane Episode No 1 Season 1931-32

    As I have posted previously I have an article printed in every official programme this season telling the story of Season 1931-32 in 23 episides. It has been pointed out to me that not everybody attendes every match and not everyone buys a programme, so I thought I would post them here again if...

    Question Straw poll - what camp are you in?

    This is a very simplified question with just three options but I think it will be interesting to have an indication how people feel about the 'regime' at Roots Hall. I'll make it anonymous so it doesn't end in a slanging match between the different 'camps'. Basically I'm interested to know if...

    Breaking News Sawyer Out Injured

    Sawyer will not be playing on Saturday as he has fractured his rib. No indication on the length of time he will be sidelined. Having fractured a rib myself, I would say he will be out for a good 6-8 weeks (unless he plays with an injection) Ribs are a bugger to heal as they obviously move...

    Taxing Times For EPL

    Have you noticed anything strange about this transfer window? Usually by this stage of the summer the Premier League is awash with new superstars from every corner of the planet, all clutching whopping great contracts and glibly swearing their allegiance to the cause, but with the exception of...

    Player Sponsorship 2009/10

    All, for the last couple of years ShrimperZone has sponsored a Southend United player for the season. This has been achieved through contributions from posters on SZ effectively buying 'shares' in the sponsorship. One share would then get you in to a draw to win one of the following: An SUFC...
