    Desert Island Discs

    Ok Zone Castaways, now is your opportunity to share the stuff that the castaways on Desert Island Discs do each week. Pretty simple really, you have to choose eight recordings (usually, but not always, music), a book and a luxury item that you would take if you were to be cast away on a desert...
  2. Travel by TZ to Oldham

    There is still time to book luxury travel with Wino on the TZ bus to Lancashire for the Oldham game this Saturday. Take the strain out of the away games by putting your feet up and relax all the way. Contact Wino to book your seat ---- don't miss out on the chance of seeing our...
  3. Will Cox and Mooney hit the target?

    4th game proper for these 2 tonight and both are still searching for their first goal this season . Mooney is not my kind of player whilst Cox IMO is a tad luxury player. Hope I'm wrong and both score plenty this season.
  4. More 'outsiders' rating our 'luxury, lightweight' no.10 ;

    The Southend United youth system has worked wonders over recent years, producing a host of Football League players, including the likes of Charlton’s Franck Moussa, Burnley’s Michael Kightly, Cardiff’s Stuart O’Keefe, Wolves’ Dom Iorfa and a whole host of other young talents. Many, including...
  5. Alternative match report: Southend v. Wycombe

    Hello Shrimpers! I'm The Luxury Fan, and I write mildly bizarre lower-league match reports. I was at Wembley yesterday, and here's my write up of the play-off final: https://theluxuryfan.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/not-with-a-bang-but-a-shrimper/. Congratulations on promotion, and what a game...
  6. Is the passing game dead?

    As I mentioned on another thread, I've watched a fair few Ryman Prem games this year and have been surprised by how direct it is. It is very much headers and volleys for 90 minutes with the ball very rarely going sideways to the widemen & fullbacks where there is space. I discussed this with a...

I didn’t have the luxury of going to football with my dad (he had stopped going years previously) so I had to finance and go under my own steem. I was 12 years old but...

  10. Shrimperzone Holiday

    I'm gonna have a break from this forum. I am as disappointed as anyone else about how this season has self imploded, league status is and should always be the most important thing and ultimate goal at the start of any season !!!! However, we are not going down., nor are we fighting off...

Great atmosphere in a packed stadium.The much larger Ersnt Happel Stadium(at the other end of town)wasn't been used since it's being painted apparently. Oh,the luxury of...

    Time For Chelsea To Grow Up

    WHAT’S GONE WRONG AT CHELSEA? For six years, Chelsea have been a relentless winning machine, but that arrogant sense of superiority has faded away. In its place is hesitancy, vulnerability and a worrying inability to dictate the flow of games. Chelsea are dropping points so frequently that...

    Francis Laurent

    With us involved in a relegation scrap, is Francis Laurent a luxury on the team sheet we can't afford? A lot of you seem opposed to playing him up front saying he is a winger, but there's no way I'd even contemplate him starting in midfield in our current predicament. He is an absolute luxury...

    Honeymoon Rage

    It should be really simple. All I want to do is to find a honeymoon. I'm actually a very easy-going person. I am a very nice person. I don't want much. I want sun. I want luxury. I want all-inclusive. I don't give a **** where I go. Anywhere hot. I don't give a **** when I go. Any time after...
