    West Stand Ticket Office

    Just wanted to say the lady running the West Stand Ticket Office was a real 'life saver' on Saturday and is an absolute credit to the club. Like a complete pillock, I left both mine and my son's season tickets at home in Burnham and only realised when I got to the ground. The lady in charge...

    A new famous(ish) fan?

    Absolute Radio DJ Andy Bush has recently moved to south Essex and, despite being an Everton fan, decided to watch us on Saturday. On his show this morning, he talked about the game and talked about maybe sponsoring a player. Good to see the club getting noticed in the wider media for once and...
  3. Timlin.

    It would seem I might be the only person on the Zone that hasn't turned on Michael Timlin. We even have people living abroad assuming all the negative stuff to be true. Talking to other fans and more importantly the management it appears not all agree with the overwhelming Zone opinion. Now I...
  4. Remembrance Day minutes silence

    I presume we were due to have a minute's silence to mark Remembrance Day on Saturday. Now that game is postponed, will the club be making alternative plans for the tribute too?

    Pre-Match Thread Southend Utd vs Colchester Utd - CheckaTrade Trophy

    There's a bit of contention as to whether this is a 'real' first team game or not. After yesterday's fiasco I reckon there could be a few more 1st teamers on show than there would have been if we had beaten or drawn with Yeovil. This game also has a bit of an edge as it's against our odd...
  6. EEEP from a players perspective!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41839083 I found this an interesting. I initially clicked on it because I thought 'It really is, Finley Burns cost £175k' but it wasn't what I thought at all. If a player needs to move to a lower category academy for whatever reason, the new club could be...

    8 Souls murdered in New York

    Kind of puts someone touching me on the knee 15 years ago into perspective.
  8. Southend Youth. Happy.

    With all this negativity going about, I thought I'd put some positive stuff. Southend U18s won 4-2 away at Lootown even tho down to 10 men. That puts them up to third in the League. By all accounts it was a brilliant performance. Youth team coach Dave Huzzey was very happy with the victory...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Peterborough United

    There's a game tomorrow and it's against our old friends Peterborough United. I say friends. More a sort of distant cousin who we occasionally visit but don't really like that much. In fact, they're a bit of a nuisance, really. The sort of team that comes here and scores in the last minute...

    Steve Waggott

    In quotes: We look back at Steve Waggott's time at the Sky Blues in his own words... Following plans being released for a brand new stadium, Waggot said: "There are several ingredients for creating a sustainable and successful club and owning your own ground is one of the main ingredients. "A...

    Turner and Kiernan

    Brown: "Hopefully in a couple of weeks we will have a definitive answer on Rob Kiernan and we can take that one forward." Michael Turner could return to action for the under 23s next week.

  14. Question Other clubs fans forums

    Whilst I have only been to most home games and sporadic more local away games last season and this season, I like to think I possess at least the same knowledge and experience as others on the forum. A reasonably long family history of playing at professional level has enabled many hours of...
  15. Shrimperzone down earlier this morning?

    ...or was it me? I always rely on Shrimperzone to cheer me up after a defeat, with a series of upbeat and constructive threads, so I was bereft this morning when Chrome could find no trace of it. PS I have also just written a letter of apology to iFollow. I had fired off a bitter complaint to...

    Moody Blues - The Campaign Starts Now!

    I have mentioned in a couple of posts in recent times that the Club have agreed to a campaign – to be known as ‘Moody Blues’ - being run as a tribute for Alan Moody. Well, it has today been launched on the Club website, so now the countdown is on! As many of you know, Alan – who has made more...
  17. The state of the Roots Hall pitch.

    Was it just me or did the pitch cut up badly .In all honesty I think that the worse ive seen a pitch at the start of the season .They must find a answer to the problem or come winter its only going to get worse .

    Promotion & Relegation Teams for 2017/18 Season

    Simple enough - name the teams that you think will get promoted automatically (and play-offs if you wish) and the teams that you think will be relegated. Reasons why you have made your selection would be nice. :smile: Just putting Southend as Champions isn't really helping the discussion...
  19. Ref Watch ..... Blackburn H

    We last hosted Blackburn on November 5th, 26 years ago. Fireworks provided courtesy of Brett Angell, twice, and Ian Benjamin giving us a 3-0 victory and our first and only win against them in 12 matches. Angell was in the middle of a run of scoring in seven consecutive matches against teams of...

    Supporters Meeting 2nd August

    Fellow Zoners Aside from reading the daily fun and frivolity of the new kit thread this summer, I also found myself on the Supporters Group representing Shrimperzone. I will be attending a meeting tomorrow. Having had a wee chattette with Cockle43 (who is handily in Scotland) to get some...
