  3. Question Jakub Sokolik - MOTM

    I have noticed that despite being part of the leaky defense Jakub has been voted MOTM for the last 2 games. There were a lot of individuals on here criticising the signing however, I for one was all for it (being Czech based I was slightly biased) Having not seen him play this season yet, are...

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...
  5. Playing Like Individuals ;

    Southend United manager Phil Brown has said his team are playing like individuals following their second heavy loss at home in a row. The Shrimpers followed up the 4-0 loss to Millwall on 28 December with a 3-0 reverse against Doncaster on Saturday. "I'm disappointed with the group mentality...
  6. International eligbility

    This is for all sports. Should all sports gov bodies allow individuals to chose what country they represent or should it only be the country of their birth.

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-1 Swindon Town

    Same old, same old as we dominate and lose again. Almost identical to Brighton only we had even better chances and dominated more and their goal didn't come so late on. Hunt could've scored and should've done better when he hit straight at the keeper at his near post, as should Payne when he...

    The Invasion of Gillingham - another short story

    Another fictional short story based on fact. Yes we did take 2,000 fans to Gillingham in 1921, yes we did take seven boat loads etc, only the names of the individuals are fictional. Not for everyone I know, but for those that wade through it this story is a tribute to your parents...
  9. Breaking News Can you help the club identify the people in this photograph?

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/southend-united-news-2453374.aspx So the club have identified the area photographed the most likely location from where the smoke bomb (vs Luton) was let off - if you know anyone in the picture or are indeed one of the individuals then you need to...
  10. Have some respect

    I was in the so called family area near the corner flag of the main stand last night. It saddens me to have to report that yet again some individuals have embarrassed our club once again. Five or six men decided to stand half way down the gang way and block the view of some families with...

    If you look at Phil Brown's managerial record , its seemingly either going really well or really badly. No half measures. HE took Hull up into the Premiership + for a while topped the Prem , playing attacking , confident football. Then they lost a game + for some reason Brown couldnt get the...

    Shrimpers Trust News Response to questions regarding Contingency Plan

    Contingency Planning Having created a business contingency plan many years ago, I knew how complex potentially this could be. The key was in deciding what constituted a disaster and agreeing on a level of detail that was manageable but effective. Over several committee meetings, various...
  15. 'Travellers' antics at Canvey & Southend during the weekend.

    Just read the Echo's story of the above, disgusting. How come these 'people' can leave a site and be allowed to leave behind a mountain of rubbish, and no one gets arrested?. As for what happened in the Bell at Southend, can you imagine a group of locals behaving like that and no one getting...

    The Football Assocation

    It's easy to be critical and point the finger at certain organisations - after all, it's nearly impossible to get all decisions right and even with the best of intentions, not everything goes true to plan or comes to fruitition. But then there is F.I.F.A. who are simply bonkers (and allegedly...
  17. Annoying opponents 11

    Was thinking about who really irked me last season and I nearly have an 11 of conners, divers, gobshites, timewasters and generally really annoying individuals. Leaving a few gaps in case anyone wants to add anyone. So here is my rogue's 11 (minus a few) including manager and ref - I have...

    Summer clearout

    So as we are now 100 percent looking at next season I believe a big old clearout is required. I am certainly not looking to start a big slagging off of players just an honest assessment of the team and where they as individuals and as a team have slumped from the team that obtained 83 points...

    Whatever Happened To The Old Leigh Bands?

    My fellow 'Zoners, I am gathering together information about bands that were formed from people who lived in Leigh-on-Sea from the late 20th Century to the current day for a radio show or shows to be broadcast on 'Ship Full Of Bombs - Thames Delta Independent Music Radio Station.' We'd also...
