    Old/Unwanted Southend United Shirts

For more information on the project please visit: www.ethiopia07.org.uk or search for some of my other...

    Sauce On Your Chips

    The SZFC clique had a Crazy Golf and Pub Crawl down the seafront yesterday and naturally en-route a few stops were made to various chip shops. It was in the Falcon that we all got talking about whats the best to put on your chips, Scrounger even got rather emotional over the subject raving that...
  3. Song Lyrics

    Going on from Dts's thread about should Tramps smoke.This song and lyrics says so much I feel is a world wide problem. I used to think this guy wrote great lyrics anyway not just from this song but so many more "Alone Again Naturally" being fantastic lyrics..But watching the Tv awards the...
  4. The Value Of A Drink.

    The Value of a Drink "Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams .. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered...

    Car Problem

    Now as you may be aware, I love my pocket rocket of a Fiat Punto, and it can easily out pace almost every car on the planet when I'm behind the wheel. However, everytime I go to get out of the beast, it gives me a minor shock of static electricity. Naturally, being harder than a coffin nail and...
  6. The (Very Long) Diary of a Happy Fan

    Tuesday 3rd - Just come back from the pub, nice chat with Ron Mack, told him that I couldn't afford any more trips to watch the Blues this season, especially as out of 5 trips I had managed 2 draws and 3 defeats. Friday 6th - Incredible, just told my son that I hoped we wouldn't give away an...
  7. What is the general feeling about Colchester?

    Naturally, big rivals.... however, absolutely fair play to them for having a good season, they have played well both games against us and deserved to win. i really hope they make the playoffs, it would be great for them to make it into the top league, i was just thinking do we all get a...

    Worth checking out?

    Jon Main, of Tonbridge - his agent, Mikkel Beck, formerly of Middlesborough, is touting him to Championship sides, and he has been on trial with Wolves and Norwich. He is on 30-odd goals for the season with about 7 games left. This, from my local rag... The future of Tonbridge Angels hot-shot...
  9. Spin the wheel...

    I did not realise that Southend had a SuperCasino and yet RM seems able to play with high risk stakes. Two seasons ago he kept the squad to a bare minimum and Lady Luck smiled, the wheel turned and The Blues were promoted. Instead of quitting whilst ahead he let his winnings roll on for the...

    Red Riding Hood - The PC Version

    There once was a young person named Little Red Riding Hood who lived on the edge of a large forest full of endangered owls and rare plants that would probably provide a cure for cancer if only someone took the time to study them. Red Riding Hood lived with a nurture giver whom she sometimes...
  11. Report from the Training Ground today

    Popped down to see what was what and get a look at the new boy etc. Macca obviously didnt train and was there to have treatment but looked to be limping worse than I had expected / hoped. Foran looks to be similar build to Eastwood , maybe a touch taller , looks naturally left footed...

    24 Hours On

    Christ, these things don't happen to us.  We have the odd good season, the odd bad, lots of mediocrity, and no ripples waved at all in the football world.  Cup runs?  Pah!  Don't be so silly! I have a copy of the Echo beside me at work though.  It says what I thought I saw.   Southend United...

    Attention Matt the Shrimp!

    Last season, you may recall that we had a pint after the Blackpool fightback and basked in the glory of knowing that promotion was just around the corner. There we were, singing Tilson's praises and reflecting on our progress, when I went off on a tangent. "You know what, Matt?&quot...

    Oggling

    As the main board is all about Man U, thought I would venture into the Pub for some random chat..... From my typical Friday in the office, I came across this story: Men Oggling Women I found this most amusing yet true! One thing I have found is that my current and previous girlfriends...
  15. Long Time !

    Hi everyone,its been a long time!!! Nice to see that the Spanish shrimper is still a miserable tw&t,harking for the days of a Billy Best & Jimmy Shankley.As for the guys i chatted to a couple of years ago,i hope you are all well! The club,albeit recently are really...

    Would you employ Tilson if you owned a large club?

    Put aside your (probably slightly biased) views, and think about it seriously. • He has no real experience at this level as of yet • He's never had cash to work with so is unproven with the chequebook • He's never had a "tricky" period in his career to negotiate to date (barring the first few...

    Interview with Adrian Clarke

    Following my abortive attempts to set up an interview with Efe Sodje (although I'll have another crack shortly), I thought I would delegate the task of conducting the next SZ interview to someone who is far funnier and better at writing than I am - namely the Zone's very own slipperduke. For...

    Reserves Match Report - SUFC 3 LTFC 1

    Was it the unseasonally warm weather or was it the fact that I'd only recently found out that STHs get into reserves games for nothing ? It matters not. The important thing is that after 33 years of patiently and quietly watching the best team in the world I finally broke my duck to watch my...
  19. JCR

    Some may feel the topic description a tad harsh but personally, for all the tearing about he does, I feel his contribution to the team is a negative one. I am not suggesting that he does not have potential but I am saying that his current performance and style is rubbish. I am amazed that Tilly...

    Read The Goat...

    Just had a copy of Feed The Goat land on my desk. Naturally, I flicked ahead and read the chapter on Southend. Very interesting stuff. He's very honest about the club and about certain limitations, but you can tell he loved it last season. I got a bit of a lump in my throat when he was...
