  1. Best comment you've heard at the Hall ;

    Randomly my eldest asked me this question the other night. I have heard plenty in my time but after a bit of thought I selected a quip from the mid 90's. I was in the West Stand that day, and please forgive me for not remembering the opposition, all the dialogue or even the 'target', but...

    Pause for breath...

    So the mighty Blues have no game this week and we have bumper news stories breaking about the London Soccerdome. It's always interesting to see stories about our club that are newsworthy on a national basis and I think it's also quite interesting to see the slant that us Zoners put on it...

    The Last 12 months of the Prediction League

    In the brief pause between the World Cup and the start of the new season I thought it me worth a quick review of the last eventful twelve months and gave praise again to the winners. It was a year ago that the Prediction League was split into four sessions each one of about 13 matches. First...

    Bobby Robson - almost

    Is it true that you’ve twice been approached about the Southend manager’s job? (I remember the Express running the story about 10 years ago!) Bernie Friend, Leigh on Sea Yes, I was, you know. [A long pause]. I’ve been offered the Westend [er, that’s Southend, Sir Bobby] job twice. Now where was...
  5. Traditions for the new stadium....???

    In the new stadium I would like to put forward an (work in progress!) idea that we start a tradition. As our team, at this time of year, visits the local hospital to raise some cheer to all the kids stuck therein, would something along these lines be fun in mid December...

    Jose - Up Close and Personal

    Jose Mourinho smoulders. I wanted to get through this feature without writing anything that might worry my new wife, but there you go, I’ve blown it in the first line. But he really does. He smoulders. He walks into the sweaty, over-crowded press room and sits there in front of the lights...

    BBC sport blog on our troubles

    Not sure if its already been posted somewhere, but anyone who is a little unclear of the deadlines and HMRC dealings, this BBC sport blogger has done a little article on us as well as cardiff city; Southend, said the HMRC's man, were a "habitual defaulter", "plainly insolvent" and "must be...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Five

    Chapter Five - Red Sky At Night, Stokes' Delight Ricey sprinted down the back-alley, feet slipping and sliding on the wet concrete as he went. The sound of a gunshot echoed off the walls and he instinctively ducked, almost falling to the ground. Reaching the end of the passageway, he turned...

    World Series of Poker

    Finished this morning in London after a mammoth final table session. John Juanda eventually managed to beat the painfully slow (at times) Stanislav Alekhin. The Russian had played extremely well to build up a solid chip lead but after Juanda had bullied some of Alekhin's raises, it came down...

    Stolen from the new Adam Sandler movie 'Click'. What would you do if you could pause, slow down, fast forward and generally bugger around with time. I'm going to ponder this one as the possibilities are endless Over to you lot........

  19. Blackpool

    Quick points: Blackpool fans were great, had a good chat with some of them before and after the game. They are being screwed by Oyston who won't sell up to a consortium with cash to spend. Blackpool is a dirty, rusty, peeling, faded craphole of a town it makes Southend look prosperous and...
