    A goal poacher in January

    Just a thought, but again last night highlighted our lack of a goal scoring threat or more like a poacher. We again played some decent football and again Cox and Ranger linked up well as did Wordsworth and the midfield. But at the moment very much like Walsall and Swindon, both games could have...

  5. Frustrated

    Tilly will always have my utmost respect for the fantastic job he has done at Southend United, I love the guy - he's a legend. I'd also love to see him stay here for many, many years to come, it would take an awful lot for my feelings to change on that score. However I'm frustrated at the...

    Lee Barnard in January

    It came to me tonight that would it not be in the best interests of this club to offload Barney in January if the opportunity arises? I like Barney, I think he is a decent poacher at this level, and when he is fit and on form, he will score goals, given the service. Trouble is, he is almost on...

    Great question on Radio Five today

    I was driving back from Dundee to Aberdeen this afternoon and listening to Radio 5. One of the questions was if you could sign a player from your Clubs PAST.....who would it be? The deal is that they would be at the same level as they were in there hay day for your club. For me....it would...

    Klass-Jan Huntelaar

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...

    One more striker...

    After watching the Tilly interview seems very much that his after one more striker. With Ron Martin stating there could be two new players coming in on loan. So what sort of striker do we need now/ what sort of striker do we lack. From what i can gather. Barnard- Poacher. Some pace. Revell-...

    On the bright side..

    Got back to my car and the wheels were still on it Team coach stoned (apparantly) but no-one hurt Crap ref - but no red or booking for Macca or Bailey 2000+ Blues fans in good voice - always a sight to behold 2 in 2 for Lee Barnard - we now have a "poacher" Leeds lost - again - gonna...
  11. Windass goes to Hull

    Just seen the news that Dean Windass has gone to Hull on loan! I for one think that he is a good signing for them as he has scored goals wherever he has played. I think this move could really help Hull to win a few more games between now and the end of the season I still think we need...

    The Lead Boot...

    We've all heard of the Golden Boot - that trophy awarded to the most prolific striker at the end of the season.  The heroically talented Mr. Eastwood has already bagged one for his personal trophy cabinet. However, here at Shrimperzone, we're not happy unless we're moaning... and so I give you...

    Webbs vs Tilson Team

    Maybe one for the older posters which I never thought I would find myself in that catergory at 27 but there you go. Looking at both teams squads if you could have a starting 11 from the two promotions teams who would you go for. I am having these bad boys GK - Sammy - Just edges out Flavs...

    Dudders,

    first name on the teamsheet up front. Pace, skill and a natural poacher, it is now time to perm the other three around him. Thought the whole team played well tonight except Bentley, whats happened to him, looked well off the pace again.
