    Moving Us Forward

    Since promotion we seen a lot of new faces - permanent and loan - and the squad size has grown. The interesting thing for me is that hardly any of the new faces are nailed on for a first team start - the only one that possibly is, is Tyrone Barnett. Whilst Brown is clearly trying to add new...

    No. 2 POINTS and TABLES for MAIN PREDICTION LEAGUE - Tuesday 1st March 2016

    THIS IS THE MAIN PREDICTION LEAGUE SEE ALSO THE SOUTHEND PREDICTION LEAGUE (Southend score and scorers only) This current session is proving very difficult with virtually no points gained from either Col Ewe or Southend matches. Well done to Microbe on scoring double figures: POINTS below...
  3. Our ticketing system - why is it so complicated

    A little bit of light relief . Our ticket system has one main purpose- how difficult can it be? I am a season ticket holder and last week bought tickets for last night’s match for myself and two friends , also season ticket holders. I bought them on the phone and was told they would be...

    Question ....You Should Never Return

    Many people say that you should never return as a Manager or indeed as a Player to a club where you were previously successful as it is unlikely (but not impossible) that you'll be able to repeat your past glories. Sadly two of my favourite players in Lee Barnard and Freddy Eastwood are proving...

    This year's Premier League

    I know it's fashionable to bitch and moan about the Premier League and everything it stands (or doesn't) for but, despite it's money-centric nature, it's always been about the talent for me. As someone who just loves Sport at the highest level, it's got the drama, characters, skills, high stakes...

    Signing up to a Service

    Is anyone signed up to a service to receive tips? I have been on board with this for a week and a half and I have been making 2-3 bets per day in leagues all over the World at all different times of day. This is currently proving to be very profitable. It is the first time I have been betting...

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...

    Tomlin proving doubters wrong

    Well, not ashamed to admit that I said Tomlin was terrible a few games back (Think it was P.Vale). Since then he has proved me wrong and be impressive to say the least. That first goal seems to have been the confidence boost he needed so full marks to Tomlin for proving me wrong. :thumbsup:

    PL Weekly Points Points for Round 5

    I've rarely known so many of us (and yes i do include myself :winking:) get our wildcards spot on, that obviously went a huge way to the masses of points that were gobbled up this week .. top of the tree is Ken, proving you don't need to know what you are doing to do well at this game :smile...

    My view on the season as a whole and those 83 points gained

    There's lot of talk on here that we got 83 points which should/would have been enough for promotion in other years. A points tally in itself is meaningless, if you have a lot of strong teams consistently winning and picking up points you will need more than average to gain automatic promotion...

    Any budding journalists out there?

    Hi John, Appreciate your help on this, Southend fans are proving one of the hardest to find so far. Cheers, Aidan I am looking for a Southend supporter who would be interested in representing the Shrimpers on an established football site by writing unique content on a regularly basis...

    A considered opinion

    There is an air of inevitability about defeat against Bradford on Friday evening, and when (not if) this occurs the time for big decisions will have been reached. That will be six games without a win, and, at least 12 without a good performance. For a team that was top of the league, two games...

    PL Weekly Points Points after Round 4

    Here's the points after Tuesday, sadly proving that we shouldn't bank on Blues for points. Well done to Harold Bishop Killer on being top of the shop with a good 11 points. I will have a table up soon now we've completed 4 rounds and will see how that's taking shape. 11 - Harold Bishop Killer...

    Have we turned the corner 1 year on?

    Cast your minds back to July 2010. The negatives: We had just been relegated to League Two. We had just lost Steve Tilson. We had been in court several times that season. Players were going unpaid regularly. Pretty much all the squad had gone and we were in danger of not fulfilling our...

    Tactics thread

    Right, pitches. Am fed up with my green pitch which is proving too slow scoring to bring about results (other than defeats for me). What pitch is the quickest to bowl opponents out on? Don't mind going for runs as long as the wickets come quickly. Strike-rate is king. I'm thinking maybe...

We will of course continue to make The Zone one of the top boards outside of the Prem....There are certain bugs like the names in groups and other little annoying things...
